HeatingWe use gas central heating and hot water system. The system was installed in 2005 and was the most effective on the market at that time. Each room is individually heated through radiator valves and a thermostat timer controls the whole.
There are flow reducers on taps where possible. All en-suites are showers. Weights have been added to toilet cisterns to reduce water wastage. We water our garden with the water created by the condenser dryers.
We compost our kitchen waste in our wormery and use the liquid fertilizer this produces to feed our plants and use the compost it makes to grow our own flowers and vegetables. We print as little as possible and use-recycled products as much as possible.
We recycle as much as possible and encourage our Guests to do the same. We use recycled materials where possible i.e. toilet paper, printing paper, all our glassware in the dining room. Items that can be re-used are given away to local charity shops or a local residential home,(such as furniture that we have replaced).

Placing old newspapers by your bin for us to recycle.
Leave your car parked for the duration of your stay, and enjoy walks around Whitby. We have provided some booklets in your ‘what to do’ packs for short walks both on the East and West Cliff and for further a field, or catch the local buses or even the Steam Train
