As part of Green Tourism Week last week, the first ever Green Tourism Conference was held.
The final part of the conference was the awarding of the Goldstar awards recognising the greenest businesses in the UK over the last year. With 13 categories as well as the Goldstar People’s Choice award where members of the public voted for their favourite and greenest business from a shortlisted selection.
Langdale Hotel & Spa in the Lake District was amongst the shortlisted businesses in both the Goldstar and Goldstar People’s Choice. Unfortunately, Langdale did not receive the People’s Choice this year but was triumphant in receiving a Goldstar Highly Commended in the hotel category having already been rated gold by Green Tourism in the grading system.
More and more businesses are joining Green Tourism in a bid to be recognised as doing their bit to help conserve the environment and to be more sustainable. In the case of Langdale Hotel & Spa, it is an excellent year on year recognition of their progression and continuation to lower carbon emissions and their wish to help preserve the Lake District at the same time.
Langdale’s new Brimstone Hotel continues the same ethos and as being a part of the Langdale Estate, utilises the same eco friendly resources and facilities as the rest of the resort.
