Eco Stay

The conversion of the cottages has been carried with the aim of achieving outstanding energy ratings:

  • High levels of insulation to minimise energy loss
  • Biomass heating, sourced from local woods
  • Re-cycled building materials used wherever possible
  • FSC timber used for new wood
  • Enhanced habitats for wildlife (including: new native trees and shrubs, bird boxes, bat boxes, heathland left to go wild, ponds and more trees)
  • Argon-filled double glazing
  • Low energy lighting throughout
  • Local builders used to minimise travel
  • More than 1500 trees planted in the past 5 years - you can plant more if you want!
  • Green travel options available on request.
