Lasswade Country House, a luxurios restaurant with rooms set in the glorious hills of Mid Wales, has won a major ‘green’ award, presented at a top London hotel.
Emma and Roger Stevens are dedicated to preserving the environment, and this commitment has just earned them the Green Small Accommodation Provider of the Year award, presented at The Savoy Hotel in London.
In addition to sourcing as much food as possible locally, they provide guests with a discount for using public transport, and have an active recycling and energy reduction policy.
“We are very aware that our business activities should not compromise future generations,” explains Emma. “In the hotel, we make this sustainable aspiration a reality – there’s no point in just paying lip service to being green, you have to really do your bit.”
Lasswade Country House is featured in the new guide book to distinctive establishments in Wales, Great Little Places ( www.little-places.co.uk ).
Lasswade is noted for its homely yet stylish interiors, spectacular views over the Cambrian Mountains, outstanding food, log fires and warm welcome.
The hotel is situated on the fringes of the quirky little town, Llanwrtyd Wells, notorious for its annual Bog Snorkelling event and Man v Horse race.
