We Care

Red Carnation Hotels is part of the TTC family of brands and works in proud partnership with its TreadRight Foundation to #MakeTravelMatter.

At Summer Lodge, we are committed to our community and to supporting local charities such as Longmead Community Farm, Julia’s House Hospice and WE Charity. We grow many of our own vegetables, fruits and herbs in our kitchen gardens and take any food waste that cannot be recycled in our compost pile to a bio-digester to be converted into electricity. As part of our sustainability efforts, we work closely with local charities to reuse amenities such as, soaps, which are recycled into paints for children at the Bootmakers Workshop.
