Our Philosophy

We are surrounded by stunning countryside and nestled between Exmoor national park and the Quantock Hills an area of outstanding natural beauty. Our philosophy is to make the Lavender Hill Holidays as eco friendly as possible. We recognise we have a long way to go to be totally eco but each year we try to reduce our carbon footprint and increase our biodiversity.


We have tried to insulate the properties as much as possible. We also have a wood burning stove in each property and all our wood is seasoned and sustainably sourced.


We are very keen to promote the use of bikes and public transport for holidays with us. We realise that it is hard to access us without a car, but the train system is very good to Taunton and if you have bought your own bikes we will pay for an electric taxi to Halse. We are aiming to rent out electric bikes.

Supporting Local Businesses

We are very keen on encouraging our visitors to support the many and varied local businesses we have in the local area. We buy all the hamper products from local farm shops and the excellent Taunton farmers market. We have great local pubs and cafes and encourage as much support as we can. We hope that guests will support the local food and drink businesses as much as possible.


We recycle pretty much everything and ask our guest to as well.


Although we realise that central heating is a must, we do ask that visitors in the winter turn down the radiators instead of leaving them on full with the windows wide open! In 2013 we converted our exisitng oil boilers which ran the pool and cottages ot a Biomass heating system fuellled by renewable wood chips. Its great to be using this fabulpous Norweigan system and heping our enviroment!


We are trying to encourage the biodiversity of local fauna and wildlife. As a result we allow the summer grasses and hedgerows to flourish.
