Shropshire Hotel wins Gold in National Green Tourism Scheme

Supporting and promoting the best of local produce has helped the Longmynd Hotel of Church Stretton achieve the top standard in a prestigious national sustainable tourism scheme.


Announced this week, the Longmynd Hotel’s Gold Award in the UK-wide Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) followed a comprehensive audit of business practices. Highlights of the hotel’s sustainable approach to tourism include good building management and use of a biomass boiler, plus a strong commitment to sourcing from local food and drink suppliers.

Commenting on the award, Longmynd Hotel proprietor Lee Chapman – who was acknowledged in the audit for being a committed and inspiring owner – thanked his team for their hard work and underlined a continuing commitment to working with other local businesses.

The Longmynd Hotel has been a member of the Green Business Tourism Scheme since 2008. The GTBS is the national sustainable tourism certification scheme for the UK and is now the only certification scheme validated by Visit Britain, through the International Centre for Responsible Tourism (ICRT).
