Whatley Manor

Whatley Manor, the luxury manor house in the Cotswolds, Wiltshire, has embarked on a concerted programme to make the hotel, its restaurants and spa a beacon for sustainability.

Over the past year, General Manager Sue Williams and her team, including Executive Chef Niall Keating, have examined every aspect of the Whatley Manor operation to assess how improvements can be made to reduce their carbon footprint, eliminate waste and generally monitor efficiency.

To achieve their goal, Whatley Manor joined the NOW Force for Good Alliance which provided sustainability solutions and a structure for action. This includes an accredited sustainability programme and certification – EarthCheck Evaluate with Earth Rating – which recently awarded the hotel four Globes (out of a maximum of five) as a point of differentiation to many industry counterparts. itmustbeNOW.com is the sustainability platform that is an umbrella for the travel industry.
