'Figaro' Japan (translated)
'An organic hotel that provides comfort and convenience - The hotel is obsessed with everything organic, situated right in the middle of Grasmere village. They even use organic linen and soaps. Architectural material is important to them – they have recycled roof beams in bedrooms. Breakfast is the kind walkers want – a magnificent buffet. And of course, the food is all organic and fair-trade. It is comfortable and charming.'
'Moss Grove Hotel Organic has all the trappings of a luxurious bolthole, yet nearly all of the food and drink - from the breakfast sausages to the chocolates and champagne - is organic. The paint throughout is clay-based and organic; sheep fleece was used for insulation; and beds are fashioned from recycled wood.'
BBC Olive Magazine
'Every detail has been considered to make it as sustainable and environmentally
friendly as possible, including the huge beds handmade from reclaimed
timber and leather, wallpaper printed with natural inks, low-voltage
lighting, organic, local or Fairtrade produce, and recycling'.
Which? Holiday Magazine
'Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park, this
environmentally friendly hotel has an innovative organic philosophy.
In a bid to reduce the hotel's environmental and carbon footprint,
refurbishments were carried out using as many natural products
as possible - decorating with organic clay paints and insulating
with sheep fleece'.
'You don't have to be grungy to be green, and this splendidly stylish organic
and environmentally-aware hotel proves it beyond the whisper of a doubt.
Step into any of the sumptuously decorated bedrooms and you'll know you're
in for a treat'.
Homes and Interiors Magazine
'Spoil yourself with a trip to Moss Grove Hotel in Grasmere.
A true eco hotel, built and furnished using reclaimed materials. Eleven
stylish bedrooms decorated with clay-based paint and equipped with
luxuries like a spa bath'.
'This grand, gabled Victorian house is green and gorgeous.
The vast, pass-the-satnav beds are made from reclaimed timber, the
flamboyant wallpapers have been made with natural ink, and the trendy
bathrooms use water that has been filtered to remove chlorine and perticides'.
'Each of the bedrooms has its own individual character
with bold wooden beds and expanses of hand-screened wallpaper. The
beds are made from reclaimed timber, sustainable wood sources or natural
leather and are complimented by duck down duvets and opulent bathrooms
stocked with organic toiletries'.
