Green Award Cobden ViewHere at Cobden View we are committed to providing a good quality service whilst minimising the environmental impact of our activities.

Your ‘welcome to Cobden View’ includes local produce from The Milking Parlour – run by the Gill family at Sabden’s remaining dairy farm;  hand-made crafts from a village micro business, plus eggs from our hens, home-made cake...and, of course, a copy of the Forest of Bowland Discovery Guide.

We also sell Forest of Bowland Badges to support the Champion Bowland Fund.

Some of the main steps we have taken to reduce our impact are:

Recycle as much waste as possible to cut the amount going to landfill.

We use microfibre cloths and environmentally friendly cleaning products throughout - for laundry, in the kitchen, bathrooms and other rooms.

Reduce electricity consumption by using low energy light bulbs, encouraging visitors - and ourselves - to 'switch off' !

Encourage visitors to use disposable bags so they 'bin it, don't flush it' in the bathrooms.

Encourage visitors to follow the Sustainable Tourism Visitor code and the Countryside Code

Provide recycled paper in bathrooms and kitchen and recycled bin bags for non-recyclable waste.

We encourage our guests to take an interest in local wildlife by asking them to make a note of what they have seen, we also record wildlife activity on our blog.

Four old dustbins that friends were throwing out and that would have ended up in landfill are now under drain pipes around the farmhouse and greenhouse to collect rainwater, which is used to water flowers and other plants during dry spells.

Developing local walks with a fellow Sustainable Tourism Network member.

We are committed to caring for and preserving the countryside. The land isn't ours to keep. It's for the generations to come.
