Sustainable travel is a key focus for the team at Luxury Cottages and a major consideration for many of our property owners and guests. As a result, we work hard to minimise the carbon footprint of our properties and guest travel.
We subscribe to Ecologi a social enterprise that helps us to compensate our carbon footprint by funding climate projects such as planting trees.
We encourage property owners to provide recycling facilities to guests as a minimum and we actively look for properties that have eco features. So, if a cottage has solar panels, a living roof, a specially created bee-friendly flower border or any other sustainable feature, this will be detailed on the listing.
Many of our owners also upcycle, purchase vintage items or employ local craftspeople to create furniture from sustainable products. Not only do we think this is a fantastic example of sustainability, but it also adds a personal touch to these homes.
With an ongoing commitment for a greener way of holidaying, we hope to minimise our environmental footprint, without compromising on luxury.
