The next morning, wake up to a hearty breakfast served in the Old Dairy dining room.

The green alternative
If you’re an ethical business like us, you’ll love the fact that all paper on site is recycled – including the conference pads – and the pens you can buy use vegetable inks. We use solar and biomass heating, wastewater is broken down in our reed bed sewage system, and we even harvest rainwater. Best of all, every penny of profit goes directly to the Avon Wildlife Trust to protect local wildlife.
