Hopton House and The Environment
We are very lucky at Hopton House to live in a beautiful part of the country - just a dog ball's throw from the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We are keen to do what we can to preserve that beauty by doing what we can to minimise our impact on the environment whilst maintaining high levels of luxury and comfort for our guests.
We have joined the The Shropshire Hills Be Sustainable Buy Local Scheme. This scheme requires us to demonstrate, in a number of ways, how we are being sustainable.
Some things come easily to us, like leaving the paddock unmown to create a rich environment for wildlife, feeding the birds, not pulling up nettles and planting a native hedgerow. We are also lucky to be able to source the most fantastic local food.
Others have been more challenging - like finding a environmental solution to washing laundry that still produces white sheets and recycled toilet paper that is soft enough for our guests. But we're getting there! See our environmental policy above for more details.
We also like to encourage our guests to help us become more green. It isn't easy to explore the countryside without a car and we aren't suggesting guests should go completely car free. So we've created a Sustainable Ideas Page to give you some suggestions for helping us out whilst still having a luxurious and comfortable Hopton House experience.
