“Our guests visit Sherwood House to appreciate the wonderful natural beauty of West Wales, and together, we aim to minimise our environmental impact so it can be enjoyed by the generations to come”.
Sherwood House is situated on the Teifi Estuary which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and borders the Pembrokeshire National Park and coast path.
We believe that by implementing our environmental policy, we can improve the quality and variety of our visitors’ holiday experiences in the following ways:
Whilst only a small business, there are many ways in which we can reduce our environmental impact. Here are some of the areas in which action is being taken to reduce, reuse, recycle and remove.
We have completed an initial carbon usage survey of Sherwood House and calculated the average carbon of a visit including the impact of guest travel to and from the property. At the end of the year, we will calculate the total impact based on the number of stays and commit to offsetting via ‘Clear’ a UK based QAS Approved (Gold Standard) offsetting scheme.
We also own land locally and we are committed to planting a minimum of five new trees per annum to support the health of an area of ancient mixed deciduous woodland.
