Mornington's Green approach

The walled garden at Mornington

We recently became Green Hospitality Certified. Our aims and objectives are outlined in our Environmental Policy of Mornington House 2017 (see below).

What is green about our property?

The meadows are cut for hay and silage. There are ancient trees as well as new plantings of oak and beech. All have been grown from seeds gathered on the place or other old estates. We have also planted a number of native trees. Fires burn sustainable timber, water is from the old well, eggs are from our own hens. Manure from livestock and green garden waste is composted and used on vegetable garden. Food waste is fed to hens. Warwick is the vegetable gardener and mower of the lawns. Anne, pulls weeds and picks fruit and makes chutney and other preserves.
