Organic hotel opts for Earthborn

An exciting concept hotel in the Lake District’s glorious Grasmere takes the care of its residents to a new dimension, indulging its guests in luxury without compromising their environmental principles.


Owners of the organic Moss Grove Hotel, Nigel and Jackie Gorton, said: “In every aspect of the hotel we aim to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. We serve organic, local and fair trade foods, use furniture made from sustainable materials and have decorated all our rooms using natural, toxin-free paints.

“These days, organic doesn’t mean straw beds and lime wash, it means undyed luxury cotton and technologically advanced paints. Earthborn paints demonstrate perfectly that you don’t have to compromise luxury and quality in order to be environmentally friendly.”

The hotel’s extensive, eight month refurbishment used environmentally friendly products such as sheep’s wool insulation, under floor heating, reclaimed timber and low energy appliances and lighting.

Jackie added: “We chose Earthborn paints – Claypaint for the walls and ceilings and Eggshell for the woodwork – because they contain no toxins such as VOCs and we particularly like their texture and colours.

“Claypaint has a distinct appearance and colour range that create a calming, restful atmosphere. Virtually all our visitors have remarked on it.

“We are delighted with the way Earthborn paints enhance the style of our rooms. They are also better for the health of our guests and staff.”
