Sustainability Policy

Located in the historic village of Mitchell, The Plume of Feathers is just off the A30, the main route into Cornwall.

The Plume is a 16th century coaching inn with a stylish, contemporary conservatory attached and an accommodation block containing 20 boutique bedrooms, many of which were converted from original outbuildings.

Underpinning the business is a passion for protecting the environment. From reducing plastic to customer rewards for helping us conserve water and energy, guests are fully-immersed in our sustainability experience.

At The Plume, we have wildlife planting, bee bricks and swift boxes to help encourage species populations; electric car charging points; a bore hole for our own water supply (the original well can still be seen in the floor of our coffee station); as well as our own herb garden and bee hive, producing our own Angry Bee honey.

However, there are other ways our guests and visitors can continue to help this sustainable ethos.

Towns and attractions

In Newquay there are a number of local attractions which can be accessed either via public transport or walking (for example, Newquay Zoo or the Blue Reef Aquarium). Buses or trains can also easily be taken to other locations, including the picturesque town of Padstow or the bustling hub of Truro.
