Whittlebury Park recognises its responsibility to respect the environment and strives to achieve environmental best practice throughout its business activity without compromising the comfort, standards and enjoyment of our guests. We love and care for our Estate and we want all of our guests to do the same, so future generations can continue to enjoy.
We are proud to be a zero-waste landfill Estate, we recycle everything from glass, paper, waste cooking oils, even our food waste is converted onsite into a bio fuel.
We believe we can achieve our energy goals through use of renewable energy and a focus on energy efficiency, which will both reduce utility costs and greenhouse gas emissions from our estate by c.900 tons of Co2 within the next 24 months. LED lighting and energy saving light bulbs with motion sensors are installed throughout our 700 acre estate.
We have created 14 fresh water lakes on the Estate which are used to irrigate the gold course and provide a habitat for wildlife. We are in the process of installing rainwater harvesting systems for our buildings. Water saving devices are installed throughout for all toilets and taps and we manage a heat recovery system on our waste water too.
We use carefully sourced, quality, seasonal and local ingredients. From 35-day aged Whittlebury hung beef, local asparagus to Northamptonshire goats cheese. Our passion is working closely with local suppliers.
Wildlife & Nature
Across our 700-acre Estate we have created four nature reserves and planted over 25,000 new tree saplings and have an ongoing wild flower program in place creating natural habitats. Our groundkeeping team are dedicated to ensuring all the wildlife on our estate is protected, log pile habitats are constantly being created with fallen wood which help insects, birds, bats and much more.
EV Car Charging
We currently have six 22kw car chargers installed in our Atrium car park for guest use. These charging points are supplied by EV Dot, a leading independent charge point solution.
