We just love B&Bs here at Green Unlimited, so every now and then, we’ll be posting about some eco-friendly B&Bs around the U.S. and around the world as well. If you know of a great B&B you think we should know about or you own an eco-friendly B&B, we would love it if you could write to us!
Cottage Lodge in Brockenhurst, England is known for being eco-chic, but that term just makes it seem like it’s being trendy when the B&B is genuinely doing its best to be kinder to the environment. For one thing, its breakfast room features tables made out of a black poplar tree that fell in a nearby school. The bed in the Gillies Holt room came from sustainable sources.
What would really have a lot of environmentalists buzzing, however, is the Standing Hat room. Aside from being incredibly gorgeous, it’s also solar-powered. And for those who are looking to unwind in the room and watch some TV, well, you’re going to have to work to be able to do so. Cottage Lodge has just fitted a bike in the room which will power the TV. It’s definitely a good way to watch some shows rather than just sitting around, plus you’re doing something good at the same time.
