The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Eco-retreats UK

It's great that so many places to stay in the UK are now doing their bit for green tourism, whether it's using renewables, sourcing local produce or encouraging public transport use. But we want to celebrate those amazing hotels, B&Bs, campsites and glampsites that go a whole lot further – the ones that can truly call themselves environmentally friendly. Our guide to the best of the UK's eco-retreats ranges far and wide, from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands, from cottages and hostels to farmhouses and geodesic domes. It's all here – off-grid locations, compost loos, wood-fired hot tubs and showers, solar lights, borehole water, homegrown food – but the best thing of all is that all our picks are supremely comfortable too. Saving the planet, one great night's sleep at a time!
