Overall Rating: ★★★★★ (5)

Energy Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - All bulbs on the site are energy efficient. We hope to install 2 x 20Kw wind turbines in the next couple of months (dependant on planners), which will overall produce more power than we use in the hostel. Biomass is being considered, along with PV. We already have solar installed on three seperate roofs to produce hot water for the site. Energy saving is in our staff induction.

Water Rating: ★★★★ (4)
Staff Comment - We already have some rain water collection to flush toilets. We are looking to expand this to all our toilet blocks to flush all the toilets with rain water. We have little in the way of gardens, and what there is are mainly drought resistant/hardy. Water saving is in our staff induction.

Disposal Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - Virtually all the rubbish produced onsite is recycled. We only have 3 wheelie bins for the entire site, which includes 2 hostels (70 beds), campsite (80 pitches and 2 tipis), farm, smithy, supermarket, fuel station, cafe, 6 shops, visitor information centre, Waste reduction is in our staff induction.

Eco-Active Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - We heavily promote our eco activities. Showing that quality doesn't need to be sacrificed to green activities. We are a 4 star hostel and campsite. Our website, through which we receive over 90% of our business, heavily promotes our green credentials, but we describe ourselves as eco-friendly as we are fully aware that there are always other steps we can take.

Protection Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - We run courses at the site, work with many local businesses and even fund and run a visitor information centre to promote the local area.
