A short summary of some of the key local services and local food producers
In Matterdale we are very focused on reducing the amount of waste we produce and that the waste we do generate is handled correctly. We advocate the avoidance of single use plastic - bring reusable water bottles/coffee cups and when visiting please follow your accommodation's recycling guidelines.
