Environment Visitor Charter
Budock Vean Responsible Visitor Charter - 7 things you can do to help us sustain our environment...
The hotel has been awarded the Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold Award for over 10 years. We manage the gardens organically, have 5 electric car charging points (including bespoke Tesla chargers), purchase locally wherever possible and have installed 3 biomass boilers.
We contine working to make the Budock Vean even more eco-friendly, but we need your help. We can all reduce our impact on the environment by making choices. As a visitor you have a very important role to play in helping us to conserve our natural assets and become a more sustainable destination. Here are our recommended tips on how you can help:
Reduce energy by switching off lights, TV and closing windows if heating is on.
Have a break from the car
Leave the car behind, if only for a day. Walk, cycle or use public transport. We will happily provide you with advice. Take a look at our list of things you can do without your car in the local area.
We use local products and they give you a flavour of our area and help support local communities. Take a look at the local shops in Mawnan Smith including the Blacksmiths with a selection of unique craft shops. Also, visit the Health Spa to see our range of 100% organic skincare products from locally based Spiezia Organics.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Recycling bags and bins are available for your use in your bedroom. We would also be more than happy to recycle any other products e.g. batteries on your behalf. Please speak to Reception for more information.
Be Water Wise
The UK has rising costs for water treatments and flood defence so please use water wisely.
Help us to look after the landscape and wildlife by not littering, guarding against fire and using footpaths.
Support green business
There are thousands of businesses in the British Isles working to reduce their carbon footprint through the Green Tourism Business scheme.
To plan your journey without your car visit the Traveline website. They have up to date timetables to make the most of public transport whilst staying with us.
We have recently installed more electric car-charging points for plug-in cars, including Tesla chargers. Guests at the hotel are welcome to use these points completely free of charge, including day visitors. Read more in our news and events section.
We are committed to the environment in all areas of the business and have developed a 'Go Green' meeting and conference package.
