Pocket Guide: Green Hotels Hotels in Durham

Durham and the surrounding area is home to some of the most beautiful countryside in the country - as diverse as it is stunning. The County Durham landscape encompasses such magnificent natural locales as the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty and the Durham Dales, regions well worth visiting and definitely worth protecting. It makes sense, therefore, that your stay in Durham should be green and sustainable, and there are a number of hotels and guesthouses in the area that have won awards for their commitment to the environment.

How Durham Hotels Go Green and Sustainable

Green and sustainable hotels strive to operate in tune with the environment, and while often set in rural locales this is not always the case. All hotels can benefit from a sustainable approach to business, which can mean all sorts of different procedures from little things like turning off lights when not in the room, to more significant changes such as improving insulation or using solar power to heat swimming pools. Many hotels will have a restaurant, which can aim towards a Green Certification by adopting environmentally friendly practices such as using locally sourced produce and limiting water usage/wastage. In the end, hotels adopt these policies not just to protect the environment, but also to reduce running costs and, as is increasingly the case, to meet the demands of guests who prefer to holiday in a green and sustainable manner.

The Macdonald Gisborough Hall also allows pets (for a surcharge) with is ideal for guests who love to explore the great outdoors with their furry friend. Sustainable accommodation doesn't necessarily mean rural accommodation, and the Radisson Blue Hotel, located in Durham, also meets the green and sustainable standard, as well as enjoying a convenient location in easy reach of Durham's top tourist attractions.
