Green features

Great Hallingbury Manor says it is proud to play its eco-friendly part in every current aspect and future development on the property.

Its refurbishment included installing air-source heating technology, which harnesses the surrounding air and, using a split system heat pump, converts it to heat. At optimum levels, air-source heating can deliver up to three times more energy than it consumes. Water usage will also be reduced through aqua-recycling. The hotel has a recycling and wastage system. Environmentally friendly products are used in rooms, restaurants and kitchens throughout and a large proportion of produce is locally sourced and home grown.

Great Hallingbury Manor says it aims to be carbon neutral.
