Hotel Environmental Policy
Here at Peckforton Castle we are firm believers in sustainable tourism and we are committed to the implementation, of proactive measures, to protect and sustain the local environment. We recognise the impact of our operation on the environment and aim to minimise any detrimental effects that may occur.
