We know that the local environment is vital to the success of The Headlandand try to run it with as minimal an impact as possible. The owners, Carolyn and John, have always understood this and endeavour to make the hotel a leader of industry when it comes to environmental awareness.
A commitment to recycling…
One such example of this is the biomass boiler situated by our tennis courts. This uses food waste and wood chips from diseased or unsustainable forests to heat both the hotel and the pool.
We also have an on-site glass crusher which provides local artist Julie Routley with materials for making jewellery. The glass is also used in the creation of the pathways around the hotel and grounds.
We also use a cardboard compactor which alongside our commitment to paper recycling saves an estimated 6-8 tonnes of landfill space every year.
A commitment to environmental technology…
Here at The Headland we’re also open to new technologies which will enable us to continue to save energy and the environment. Among some of the things which we use are hybrid gym machines which create energy rather than using it, a Prefect Heating System which can be continually adjusted via an app, and a commitment to using energy saving lightbulbs.
A commitment to our local community…
We also feel that it is important to support our local community, allowing industry to grow and continue to pass the benefits on close to home. It because of this that we endeavour to maintain strong relationships with local food and drinks suppliers (and we believe Cornish produce to be the best in the world!). We use local fishermen and seafood suppliers, Cornish breweries like St Austell, and a huge range of other local producers including Rodda’s dairy and Tregothnan tea.
This ethos also extends to our spa where one of our key product houses is Afyna. This is a Cornish brand which uses hand-harvested seaweed in it’s range of organic beauty products.
A commitment to the North Cornwall coastline…
Here at The Headland we have a long standing relationship with The National Trust. So much so, that we have donated over £20,000 to our regional branch over the last 18 months.
These donations are kindly funded by our guests, who commit to a small contribution of £1 upon check-out.
Our General Manager Darryl Reburn explained this commitment by saying,“The Headland is very much a destination in keeping with the National Trust’s work which we support completely. Perched on a cliff top looking out to the wild Atlantic we value the importance of both our historic building and the surrounding environment which our guests enjoy. The rugged coastline and beaches surrounding us is very much part of the appeal. We are delighted tomake these donationsand hope to continue supporting the National Trust”.
