New Forest Collection press release: New Forest Collection is a home-grown group of hospitality venues located in the New Forest National Park. As they welcome the New Year, reflecting on the year past and with their forest focus at the forefront of decision making, in January New Forest Collection launched their Green Butterfly.
A symbol of their dedication to protect, care for and prolong the future of their home, which unites their company heritage and New Forest location. Wherever a green butterfly is found, a huge amount of behind-the-scenes research has been conducted to ensure they are doing all they can to better their environmental contributions. Partnering only with those whose values align innately with New Forest Collection’s.
As a family-owned business their values are deeply embedded into their everyday. Connecting to their community, their surroundings and those who live, operate and visit the New Forest remains top priority. After all, the New Forest National Park is their home and with many choosing to visit New Forest Collection because of their unique and picturesque surrounding, it is vital they continuously strive to improve and monitor their environmental impact. Efforts to date include: the introduction of enzyme-based cleaning solutions rather than chemical pollutants, installing compost bins across the venues, welcoming beehives at Bartley Lodge, transforming Burley Manor’s pool to a wellness retreat, removing heating systems and placing 100% plant-based and recycled toiletries in bedrooms and public bathrooms. These are just a few mere examples of the transformative initiatives imbedded so far.
New Forest Collection consists of five unique and equally charming hotels, including Bartley Lodge, Burley Manor, Beaulieu Inn, Forest Lodge and Moorhill House along with their quintessentially British pub & restaurant, The Drift. As proud members of the local community, it is important New Forest Collection use their governing voice to encourage significant, sustainable developments throughout the National Park. Protecting the untarnished charm of their home inspires more visitors to engage with the New Forest; supporting local businesses, heritage traditions and the beautiful free-roaming fauna.
New Forest Collection has something for everyone. Be that adult-only retreats Burley Manor or action-packed adventure with the little ones. Dogs are welcome across the Collection too. Alongside accommodation, the hotels and The Drift offer the taste of the forest with their locally sourced, New Forest Marque accredited, seasonal menus.
