Beyond Green adds first UK member hotel

UK: Sustainable hotel collection Beyond Green, part of Preferred Travel Group, has added Swinton Park Hotel in Yorkshire to its portfolio.

Located in Ripon, North Yorkshire, Swinton Park Hotel is housed within a Grade II-listed castle that was once home to the Earls of Swinton.

Powered by a biomass boiler, Swinton Park also preserves and manages its 7,000 acres of moorland and 1,700 acres of woodland in partnership with Yorkshire Dales River Trust and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Beauty. 

The estate aims to become carbon neutral by 2030 and carbon negative by 2040.

“We are delighted to have our hotel at Swinton join Beyond Green,” said Iain Shelton, chief executive of Swinton Estate. “It further demonstrates our long-term commitment across the estate to improving the environment and promoting sustainable tourism.”

Brenda Collin, EVP of Europe for Preferred Travel Group, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Swinton Park Hotel as our first UK member in the Beyond Green global portfolio. Guided by our pillars of Nature, Community, and Culture, our brand continues to experience careful and considerate growth, attracting hotels, lodges and resorts of all sizes united by a shared commitment to sustainability.”

Each member property of Beyond Green has demonstrated impact in action and delivered on the three pillars of sustainable tourism: environmentally friendly practices that go beyond the basics; protection of natural and cultural heritage; and contribution to the social and economic wellbeing of local communities, adhering to over 50 indicators that align with global tourism standards and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
