Green Ethos

The Yan grows seasonal fruit and veg on their own farm and uses them in the dishes. They source the meat locally, including lamb from neighbouring farms. Grasmere Brewery supplies the beer, gin, and vodka, using donated hops from local farmers. They compost food waste and reuse cooking oil. They avoid single-use plastic, even opting for cardboard cartons for water. All cleaning chemicals and detergents are eco-friendly.

Supporting the local area 

Supporting the local area is a top concern. The Yan works with Cumbrian suppliers and small family businesses. You can donate to a charity via a QR code in the lounge or add it to your booking. They also recycle old appliances and furniture in the local area.
