Owned by the ethical hotel chain Saorsa Group Ltd, the hotel co-founders Jack and Sandra promise visitors an entirely ethical and vegan-friendly stay. Considerations have been made not only towards the food, but also the hotel furnishings with all 11 bedrooms individually styled and adorned with a mix of luxurious linens, antique furniture and comforting bohemian vibes.

Saorsa 1875 will also be eco-friendly, using non-toxic and ethical cleaning products, cruelty-free and vegan toiletries as well as being powered using Britain’s greenest energy company, Ecotricity.

Jack McLaren-Stewart, co-founder and head of lifestyle at Saorsa 1875 comments: “We want to show people that veganism isn’t just a compassionate, ethical choice, it’s also an exciting, vibrant way of life. The innovation that we’ve seen across food and fashion in recent years has been hugely inspiring and we’re excited to be part of the world’s fastest growing social justice movement”

Head Chef

The menu, led by Italian chef Luca Sordi is completely plant-based, showcasing local, seasonal and foraged produce, all of which can be paired with an array of local beers and a unique selection of wines. The hotel will also play host to the first cocktail bar in the area, serving drinks inspired by the region and the owners travels.
