Our Environmental Footprint
At the Dower House we take our responsibility to the environment seriously and limit our environmental footprint. Although Dower House was built in the late 19th century, we are proud to operate an environmentally friendly and low carbon usage hotel utilising a PV solar electricity generating system and a biomass boiler for our heating and hot water. We have LED lights in all the rooms and throughout the property, and double-glazed windows.
The carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned by our biomass boiler is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. Just one way we’re helping to be eco-friendly.
