Eco-Friendly B&B

Our Environmental Policy

Polraen Country House Hotel aims to be a sustainable tourism business: environmentally aware, seeking ways to reduce our carbon footprint and to run our hotel without generating the potential for harmful consequences from tourism.

Genuinely 'giving back'

This is an easy claim, but we genuinely do ‘give back’ by investing our time in helpiing to run the Looe Marine Conservation Group. Gill received a Volunteering Appreciation Award in 2016 from Volunteer Cornwall for her role as then Chair.  Gill and daughter Amelia (now Chair) continue to hold committee roles helping to organise local beach cleans, public events and educational campaigns. 

In turn, we encourage our guests to enjoy their holiday in Cornwall considerate of the impact they may have on the local heritage, culture, community and the environment. We adopt recycling and apply housekeeping routines and make purchasing decisions which reflect care and consideration for our environment. So what does this mean?

We hope you will support us in our efforts to protect this beautiful county of Cornwall, to ensure that its natural assets, ways of life and cultural heritage continue as a legacy for the enjoyment of future generations.
