Pocket Guide: Green Hotels Hotels in Essex

Essex is home to some of the United Kingdom's most glorious greenery, beautiful beaches and wonderful wide open spaces. With nature reserves to be found in places such as the South Essex Marshes, Bedfords Park and Rainham Marshes, there's a wide diversity of wildlife in the county. Along the 350-mile coastline you'll find that a number of Essex's beaches have been awarded the coveted Blue Flag in recognition of their cleanliness and efforts towards protecting local flora and fauna. If you'd prefer to enjoy your staycation in a hotel that takes its responsibility to the environment seriously, check out the range of green hotels in the area. Without any compromise on quality or service, green, sustainable hotels in Essex range from small, country lodgings to contemporary, upmarket hotels.

Respecting the Environment: Green Hotels in Essex

Chelmsford is a popular destination for those who enjoy a dose of the Great Outdoors. There are plenty of nature-based attractions to get to grips with, including the Chelmer ad Blackwater Navigation canal and the home of the Royal Horticultural Society, RHS Garden Hyde Hall. Many nearby hotels, such as the County Hotel, are part of the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS). The County Hotel has been awarded a Gold Award for its efforts as a green, sustainable hotel, which include sourcing 70% of their kitchen ingredients from within a 40-mile radius, using low-energy light-bulbs and using eco-friendly cleaning products throughout the hotel.

The Green Business Tourism Scheme

With all the holiday high-life to be found in Southend-on-Sea, it's possibly one of the last places you'd expect to find a green, sustainable hotel. However, the Holiday Inn Southend is just one of a growing number of hotels in the area that are committed to reducing their impact on the environment. Also members of the GTBS, they are undertaking a variety of policies, including recycling and reducing carbon emissions.

Serving the Local Community

Even larger hotels in Essex, such as the Park Inn by Radisson Thurrock, are making significant progress when it comes to their impact as a business. The Park Inn has implemented its Adding Colour to Lives scheme, which focuses on building relationships with local youths-at-risk groups and is heavily involved in developing projects within the local community.

If you're looking for a hotel with a small carbon footprint and which respects the local community, you'll find an extensive range of green, sustainable hotels in Essex.
