Respecting our natural environment
We operate in a very rural community in an area of outstanding beauty, the Cotswolds, we value it tremendously and we seek to make a solid contribution to protecting resources and the environment for future generations to enjoy.
We are surrounded by organic farmland and endeavour with our own practices to reflect this, 95% of our practices are organic, with negligible chemicals being used.
We leave part of our garden undisturbed for the optimum habitat for the wildlife. We have bat /bird boxes placed all around the gardens encouraging them to remain.
We have constructed a bird hide from recycled materials, this is a quiet space located by the river where guests can view wildlife in their natural habitat.
We have introduced Bee Hives to Whatley Manor and use the natural honey within the hotel kitchens.
Visitors to Whatley Manor are encouraged to explore every corner of the garden and to visit with their dogs. We also give them local walking maps to explore the fabulous countryside around us on foot.
