Our gardens are very important to us. We know many of guests love to stroll through the grounds, check out the plants or simply to find the closest bench to sit on! The Hotel enjoys Gold Status in the Green Tourism Business Scheme so you can be assured of our commitment to keeping everything as green as we can. Our Inspector on his last visit commented that we "had an outstanding commitment to local suppliers particularly with food and drink. Also strong was good monitoring and training for staff to help improve environmental performance, good recycling practices and active support for local good cause."
Pete Crane, Maintenance Manager, and his team completed their work on the Woodland Trail and we have successfully reopened the woods for guests to enjoy the diverse wildlife and plant species.
Pete, along with Executive Chef Justin planted some apple trees a few years ago at the front of the hotel, we now enjoy a good supply but we still need to supplement from our grocer!
Pete and John have been listing all the wildlife and plants we have at Castle Green and have come up with an impressively long list. Of particular note is our resident Kestrel in Alexander's, our great crested newts in the bottom car park and our great spotted woodpecker in the woods. Let us know if you spot anything else!
