Working responsibly

Bovey Castle is an ethical hotel with a genuine commitment to reducing our bearing on the environment. We recognise our responsibilities by actively implementing and evaluating sound environmental practices wherever possible. We aim to create awareness and to ensure a greener environment for our teams, our guests and our local communities, for now and for the future.

Employee practices and training

We include environmental aspects into employee training, such as how to reduce energy, water and waste. We encourage lift sharing and combined journeys wherever possible. Public areas that are not in use will have lights, radiators and all computers and office equipment turned off at night.

Customer education

We invite our guests to assist us in our mission by asking them to participate in our linen reuse program in order to reduce our energy and water consumption and to turn off TV’s, lights and radiators when our bedrooms are not in use.

Waste management

We are working closely with our nominated waste supplier and are currently recycling glass, paper, cardboard, plastic and food waste. We currently recycle 48% of all our waste across the group and are aiming for 60% as a long-term target. We encourage e-mails in favour of post and are gradually introducing systems based on e-format.


Wherever possible we source and promote product ranges that minimise the environmental impact during production and distribution. We purchase cleaning chemicals with a low environmental impact. We communicate our priorities to our suppliers with regards to products, packaging and deliveries. We also strive to decrease the number of deliveries per week per supplier and purchase recyclable products and equipment in our hotels wherever possible.

Community Engagement

We support and actively contribute to the local community by working closely with local schools, charities and suppliers. We employ locally where we can to cut down our environmental footprint and we source products from local suppliers wherever possible.

Meet the Team

Bovey Castle is supported by a hard-working team who pride themselves on providing a first class service and welcoming hospitality to all our guests.
