Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


In our garden we encourage wildlife by growing a diverse range of beautiful plants and flowers. The walnut tree provides food each year for the squirrels with a hearty crop and also endless fun for them. We have several bird feeders but the squirrels often snag the treats here. And our dogs sometimes chase off the visiting pheasants but we do try to keep them all happy in the garden. Our guests have access to our lovely sunny wisteria-clad courtyard. The wisteria is over 100 years old (the house is 400 years old) and is now a sprawling mass of beautiful hanging purples and violets that encircles the whole courtyard. The smells are delightful. Guests will also get to sample our home-made fruits and jams. In the garden we produce raspberries and a variety of plums (including damsons and greengage). And also vegetables such as green beans, carrots, beetroot, and parsnips (though Iím not too sure guests will want these for breakfast!!). To organically produce all this delicious produce we compost all our food waste and collect rain water in butts.


In our small community of Lavant we are very conscientious of making decisions that benefit the people who live here. Regarding campaigns we recently had a proposed gravel pit overturned on the grounds that it would bring a lot of unwanted traffic and noise to our quiet village. Furthermore, the digging is intrusive to the landscape and the dust would envelop us. The charity we most ardently support is Chestnut Tree House in Arundel. This is the only hospice for terminally ill children in Sussex.

We support local supplies wherever possible and we choose Fair Trade brands for any imported products. We are proud to serve locally made sausages from OíHaganís for breakfast, the first specialist sausage shop it the world. The delicious sausages are also supplied to Harrods. The pub directly opposite the house is the Earl of March. We do not just recommend it because it is so close but because the standard of food is exceptional, the staff are extremely friendly and always take good care of our guests.
