The provenance of our food, drinks and room amenities is very important to us. Our menus change with the seasons, celebrating the best that nature has available. We champion British produce and choose local suppliers that can demonstrate the highest welfare standards with the lowest environmental impact. In our rooms we use natural and organic fibres, and Bamford toiletries made from only the highest quality natural ingredients.
At our heart we are a business that centres around food and how it connects us to each other and to nature. Our menus are truly seasonal, celebrating the best that nature has to offer at any time of year. Our chefs love working with the highest quality ingredients from local growers who demonstrate exceptional standards of land husbandry and animal welfare. Much of our produce comes from our sister farm at Daylesford Organic, who produce 300 varieties of fruit and vegetable across the year and meat that is traceable from field to fork. Food from further afield is sourced to the same standards; our fish for example is from day boats catching off the southwest coast of England.
Guests will find the same sourcing ethos in our rooms, where we are aiming to provide a zero waste stay with amenities that carry a light footprint. Robes and towels are made from durable organic cotton, a natural fibre made without the use of chemicals and with a far lower water use than conventional cotton. In our bathrooms, Bamford toiletries are COSMOS certified for their use of natural and organic ingredients which are kind to skin and planet. We are in the process of eliminating all single use items – this includes our 50ml toiletries which are being phased out for refillable aluminium bottles.
