At Bayards Cove Inn we are committed to running a modern and sustainable business within the confines of a 13th century listed building. What we do to minimise our impact on our environment:
We recycle all glass, cans, cardboard, food waste, ink cartridges, batteries and coffee grinds.
We aim to source all our products locally supporting the local economy and providing sustainable local employment. 100 per cent of our staff live locally and within a 10 mile radius of Bayards Cove Inn.
We use eco combi boilers to heat our bedrooms.
We are completely plastic free - our takeaway glasses are made from vegetable starch, coffee cups, lids and picnic boxes are 100% biodegradable.
We encourage email as the primary method of written communication to save paper.
We use electronic methods of communication such as e-newsletters and Social Media to keep in touch with our customers.
We support many local charities, causes and community organisations including the Dart Music Festival, the Dartmouth Royal Regatta, the Dartmouth Food and Drink Festival.
We have invested in a number of initiatives to reduce our energy consumption and impact on the environment. All lighting has been replaced to ensure we can use LED or compact fluorescent light bulbs.
All commercial equipment has been renewed since 2012 allowing us to upgrade to more energy efficient.
