Country and Townhouse x Polestar Sustainability Awards

We are absolutely delighted that Whatley Manor has been highly commended in the first Country & Town House x Polestar Sustainability Awards.

Huge congratulations to the overall winner Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and the other finalists highly commended, Fforest, The Bull Inn, The Pigs, and Keythorpe Hall.

The Country and Townhouse judging panel commented on Whatley: 

‘Whatley has been doing sustainability well for a long time,’ says Lisa. ‘It has very good policies around food, energy and amenities and has transformed a historic building to be as sustainable as possible within the bones of a listed building.’

‘We admire the work and passion of Sue Williams, its general manager, who has overseen in-depth transformations throughout the hotel,’ adds Fiona. These include reducing its energy emissions by 36 percent on gas and electricity since February 2019, achieving Silver accreditation with Earthcheck in September 2022, and employing a full-time Sustainability Officer and a part-time Supply Chain Officer. Keep up the great work.”
