Green methods of heating hotel rooms can actually work in a hotel’s favour in more ways than one.
Take the Brimstone Hotel on the Langdale Estate in the Lake District. They have installed wood burning stoves into each of their 16 suites and rooms and since opening four years ago, it is one of the most talked about features especially for guests staying in the Autumn and Winter months. A guest can light the stove whenever they like with the logs provided, a great little bonus in a hotel room and that’s without the enjoyment of sitting in front of it after a long and damp day on the Lake District fells. You’ll also find a welcoming woodburner straight away from outside in the feature hallway.
But wheat needs to be focused on even more here is the way in which this system of room heating is fabulous for the environment. The location of Brimstone being on the Langdale Estate where woodland is plentiful means not only do these stoves lower carbon emissions compared with central heating systems but also that the wood used in locally sourced and managed meaning very little in the way of wood transportation.
This new boutique hotel in the Lake District won the Best Eco/Sustainable Build category in the Northern Design Awards in 2013 an continues its ethos of sustainability, natural and local products and services.
But don’t forget it’s also about beauty and luxury and that is exactly what guests experience all year long at Brimstone. Look to stay this Autumn or Winter and remember, book 30 days or more in advance and receive 15% off the room rate.
