Corporate Social Responsibility
Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa is part of Greenclose Hotel Ltd and we have always been led by family values. Our group corporate social responsibility strategy is based in ensuring that our employees, environment, and local community are supported and cared for. Responsible behaviour is at the heart of our business and drives our vision for the future.
As an independent hotel and spa group with locations across the UK in areas of natural beauty we understand the importance of protecting the environment and promoting responsible tourism.
In an ever globalising marketplace it is important to recognise the impact we have at a local and global level. To ensure that we are accountable and contributing towards a positive and responsible future we are aligning to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, specifically – Goal 3 Good Health and Wellbeing; Goal 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth; Goal 12 Responsible Consumption and Production; Goal 15 Life on Land. These Goals have been created to bring companies, individuals, charities and governments together to solve the world’s most pressing social, economic and environmental issues and we are proud to announce our participation.

- Encouraging car-free travel with a 10% discount for those that travel by train
- Electric vehicle onsite available for guest transfers to and from the local train station
- Annual environment clean up days
- Reusing and recycling wherever possible – ie donating toiletries to cleanconscience.org.uk
- Reducing our food waste across all locations
- Reducing our use of plastics where possible
- Our hotels are powered by hydroelectric energy
- At least 80% of our lighting is LED
- We offer electric charging points for cars
- All of our meat across the 3 hotels is free range and ethically sourced from suppliers such as Owls Barn Farm and Pondhead Farm
- We grow our own vegetables and herbs as much as possible and source from local suppliers such as Merry Orchard Mushrooms and the Eling Tide Mill Flour.
