Our Responsible Visitor Charter

At Broadway Manor Cottages we are working towards becoming one of the most eco-friendly self catering places to stay in Worcestershire, but we need your help to achieve that target. As a guest you have a very important role in helping us conserve our natural assets and become a more sustainable destination. Here are some ways you can help:

  1. Conserve energy – Reduce energy by switching off lights when not needed and by closing windows when the heating is on. Please use the outside airer rather than the tumble dryer whenever possible.

  2. Leave you car behind – If only for a day, walk, cycle or take the bus - Enjoy a Car Free Day. Walk whenever visiting the village (we provide torches so that you can walk home after dark). It is only a short walk from your cottage into the centre of the village. Please ask for bus timetables or local bicycle hire.

  3. Shop local, eat local – Use local products and the village for your shopping to help support our local community. There are some great farm shops in the area and the local foods such as asparagus, apples and plums are not to be missed.

  4. Reduce, recycle, reuse - Try to avoid overly packaged goods and say no to that extra carrier bag. In our Laundry Room there are some jute bags, please use them for your shopping and return them after use or reuse your plastic bags. Please recycle and use the recycling and compost bins available.

  5. Be water wise - Please use water wisely. Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth and only use the washing machine when you have a full load.

  6. Respect our environment and nature – We are in The Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Please help us to look after our wonderful landscape and wildlife by not littering, guarding against fire and using footpaths and cycle ways responsibly. Ensure you follow the Countryside Code.

  7. Carbon Offset your stay with us with Carbon Footprint.

  8. Support Green business – Whenever possible, please support the hundreds of businesses in the region trying to reduce their carbon footprints. Members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme can be identified by the above logo - have a look at www.green-business.co.uk for more information.

Most importantly we hope you enjoy your stay with us and we’d like you to come back! If you feel there is anything else we could be doing to reduce our environmental impact please let us know.

Wildlife in our Grounds

We encourage wildlife in our garden and woodland areas and if you stay with us you will see a wide variety of wildlife during your stay. Our regular inhabitants include:

During your stay you are invited to take time to wander through the grounds (day or night) and see whether you can spot any of the above or even some not mentioned. Please record any sightings in the Nature Diary in the Laundry Room. Please also take a look at our online Nature Diary.

As there are few street lights near us, please take time to look up and see the stars on clear nights!
