An environment worth conserving
We’re lucky enough to live in a gloriously unspoilt part of Cornwall and we want to keep it that way. We’re passionate about conserving the environment and, by staying here, you’ll be having an eco-friendly holiday without even realising it.
All the central heating, hot water and heating for our indoor pool is powered by a biomass boiler – using our own energy crop grown on the farm. More than 75% of our electricity is provided by two micro wind turbines and solar panels on the roof of our energy crop store. If, aesthetically, wind turbines aren’t your thing, don’t worry. There’s a woodland between them and your cottage that hides them from view. However, if you love them there’s a waymarked footpath you can take that leads right up to them.
If you’re here out of season – and staying in one of the cottages with a wood burner – you’ll be using logs from trees planted on the farm. We’ve planted more than 14,000 so it’s going to take a long time for the logs to run out! We also encourage all our guests to recycle where possible – and provide recycling points for all those empty wine bottles.
Wherever possible we support local suppliers and chose organic. Much of the produce in our farm shop – from our apple juice to our sausages and organic ice cream – is locally grown or produced.
Finally, we get great joy from our surroundings – the beautiful woodland, open meadows and wildlife-filled hedgerows. We hope you do too.
