We care passionately about sustainability and conservation at The Lodge and are committed to being as environmentally friendly as possible.

We heat The Lodge with a biomass boiler fuelled exclusively by locally sourced wood chip that is BSL and FSC accredited. Solar panels provide some of our electricity, and our water is sourced from a private water supply.


The grounds and gardens at The Lodge support biodiversity with native, pollinator-friendly plants and trees. The surrounding farm and parkland have been managed for the last twelve years under a Higher Level Environmental Scheme which, along with the grazing cattle, provides a rich resource, especially for birds and insects. It is common to hear owls and woodpeckers at The Lodge, and from your bedroom window, you may hear a beautiful dawn chorus in the mornings or see house martins hunting insects in the evenings. Deer can often be sighted grazing on the parkland outside the front of the house.

Salwey Lodge walking holidays include delicious home grown food


During your stay, wherever possible, your food will be sourced from the farm and our vegetable garden. This may include beef, lamb, game, venison, vegetables, and summer fruits. Where other ingredients are needed, we rely as much as possible on local suppliers. Ludlow is a thriving market town with at least four butchers, two brilliant bakers, and a greengrocer, so we don't have to go far to source the majority of our menus.

Any food waste and all plant waste are composted and returned to the kitchen garden. We recycle all plastic and cardboard and provide eco-friendly products wherever possible.


Most importantly, we have designed stays at The Lodge so that you can abandon your transport once you are here. There is so much to explore and see on foot that you can leave without feeling you've negatively impacted the environment you have been able to enjoy.

Arabella is currently studying for a postgraduate degree in environment and sustainability with the Open University and would love to take stays at The Lodge to net zero and even create positive regeneration for the world we live in.
