Fowey Hall

Social responsibility

Fowey Hall is committed to the principles of social responsibility, accessibility and sustainability.

Accessibility

  • At Fowey Hall our aim is to make the hotel as accessible as possible for all of our guests.
  • Since taking over Fowey Hall, we have constantly updated our commitment to making all our guests as comfortable as possible. 
  • We have two bedrooms on the ground floor (Garden Wing) which are accessible with pull cord alarm.
  • All dietary requirements can be catered for and also bedding such as feather or fibre.
  • In case of emergency, guests are asked to advise us in advance as to any specific requirements that they may have.
  • All bedrooms have a telephone landline in case of emergency.
  • We have car parking at the front of the hotel and ask guests to call and advise if they require us to reserve a specific parking space.
  • Our staff training is ongoing to improve all knowledge and understanding of disabilities and any other issues including allergies.

If you require any further information regarding accessibility please call the hotel team on 01726 833866 or visit our website www.foweyhallhotel.co.uk.

Sustainability

  • Operate water saving policy throughout the hotel.
  • Paper waste, cardboard and glass bottles are all recycled.
  • Recycle coffee residue and add it to the garden to give some much needed nourishment and place shredded paper on the compost heap.
  • Recycle our organic waste oil and some of our green food waste goes to our chickens in the garden – our staff take home their eggs!
  • We reduce our food miles and support local businesses wherever possible by purchasing local products through Niles Bakery, Fish for Thought, Kittows, Camel Valley, Knightor, Treleavens.
  • Hotel herb garden.
  • Energy saving bulbs throughout.
  • We employ many local people from Fowey and the surrounding areas. We encourage staff to car share wherever possible – some even take the ferry!We provide staff accommodation for those from a bit further afield who can then walk to work.
  • We recommend days out without the car in our Guest Information station.
  • We get involved in lots of community events including the up and coming Fowey Mussel Festival where our chef will provide a demonstration, sponsoring the Fowey Festival of Words & Music and the local Fowey regatta and Christmas market.
  • We also sponsor the local pre-school weekly fruit and veg box and in return they come and feed the chickens and walk Bramble (our hotel dog)!
  • We have also introduced our Family Sundays, giving the community of Fowey chance to come and visit, use the pool, crèche, zip wire, trampoline and much more.
  • Our Guest Gifting Scheme charity is Penheligan’s Friends whom we support with free stays out of season for Cornish charities supporting bereaved children, young people, parents and carers throughout the county & sponsoring Oggy Wax – The Wave Project Pula or Bust Banger Rally challenge 2014.
