Energy and Resources

We are passionate about protecting our planet and doing everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint. In this respect we have designed our cottages to be as energy efficient as possible to reduce our carbon footprint.

Energy and Resources

We use low energy lightbulbs throughout our cottages and all our appliances are AAA+ rated to minimise the use of electricity.

Our cottages are double glazed and roof insulated to reduce heat loss.

We provide underfloor heating to reduce gas and electricity usage.

Our cottages have been designed to let in as much natural light as possible to reduce the need for artificial lighting.

Our courtyard entrance has a sensor light which only comes on when movement is detected.

We encourage our guests to turn off lights and appliances when not in use and to use the microwave over the hob or oven to conserve energy.

We have soakaway gulleys in the courtyard for an efficient and low environmental impact method of dealing with surface water.

We encourage our guests to use public transport instead of their car to reduce emissions and have provided them with a host of ideas for car free activities.
