BOURNEMOUTH’S award-winning eco-boutique hotel is due to feature in the premier episode of a new sustainable travel series, Green Weekend.

Dorset’s coastline will feature in the first instalment of the online travel series, with The Green House Hotel having been selected as the operative place to stay for a sustainable staycation on Britain’s South Coast.

The pilot episode, ‘A Green Weekend on the Jurassic Coast’, is the first in The Green Weekend series, which focuses on holiday destinations in Britain located near the UK’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

David Urban, one of Beyond Your World’s founders, said: “Finding local businesses who personify sustainability and sustainable travel brought this documentary to life.

“The Green House Hotel have put sustainable travel at the centre of their ethos, and their passion for environmental conservation and education is something other hotels should be learning from.”

The Green House Hotel, a restored, 32-room Grade II Victorian villa in the heart of Bournemouth, opened in April 2010 after a painstaking 18-month refurbishment during which the environmental impact of every single decision was considered.

The hotel has been recognised as one of the top “eco-hotels” in the world, and was a finalist in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2017-2018

The episode takes place along the 95km stretch of the Jurassic coastline, visiting some of Dorset’s sites of significant environmental interest such as Old Harry Rocks, Lulworth Cove and Winspit Quarry.

The presenters also meet with local businesses such as The Green House Hotel, Black Cow Vodka and Othniel Oysters to discuss their commitment to sustainability and local produce.

Olivia O’Sullivan, general manager of The Green House Hotel, said: “We were so honoured to be asked to be a part of this film.

“We champion sustainable travel at The Green House Hotel, and it’s such a great step forward that more people are promoting sustainable staycations and appreciating the world heritage landscapes that the UK has to offer.”
