We are hopefully taking delivery of two new Electric Bikes which will be available to hire, allowing you to see the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on two wheels with a little help (when needed!) from a small electric motor! Experience part or all of Stage 1 of Le Grand Depart which entertained millions back in July […]
Stone House Hotel’s dream location in the heart of the Yorkshire dales ensures that we take our environmental responsibility seriously. In order to minimise our footprint on this area of outstanding natural beauty, we have undertaken several eco-projects :
Low energy lighting is used throughout Stone House
We are proud to announce that we are the first hotel in the dales to install electric charging points for EV’s and Hybrid vehicles. Relax in the comfort whilst your car is being charged ready for your next trip!
All our waste is sent to the new Allerton Waste Recovery Park near Wetherby which opened in 2018 and not only reduces the amount of waste going to landfill in North Yorkshire by 90% it also generates enough energy to power the equivalent of 40,000 homes!
We are always looking at ways at reducing our single use plastics including paper drinking straws in the bar and glass water bottles in the rooms.
Water saving shower heads are used wherever possible.
We also encourage our staff to get on their bikes with the Cycle to Work Scheme.
Our Biomass Boiler uses wood pellets that are produced from sustainable forests. This means that we no longer use oil for our heating and hot water requirements significantly reducing our carbon footprint!
