Heat, light, energy and water

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 a micro wind turbine and photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of our energy crop store.

Biodiversity programe

Tredethick runs a mid-tier Countryside Stewardship programme to encourage meadow wildlife (through stock limitation and natural fertilisation) and to provide winter farmland bird food through planting a mix of linseed, linseed, millet, radish fodder and sunflowers.  Hedgerows are managed to provide food and habitat for wildlife.

Locally sourced goods and materials

We support local suppliers and chose organic where possible. Much of the produce in our farm shop - from our apple juice and pasties to our sausages and organic ice cream – is locally grown or produced.

Sustainably managed woodlands

We’ve planted more than 14,000 native trees in the last twenty years; oak, hazel, beech, cherry and ash.  This provides a peaceful, rich habitat for native flora and fauna, including a natural canopy for May bluebells   Our woodlands are managed sustainably through rotational hazel coppicing to provide seasoned, dry logs for the cottage log burners.  Tree surgeons leave habitat files create giant 'bug hotels' on the woodland floor.

Managing waste

We aim to eliminate single use items such as disposable drinks cups and milk cartons. Welcome milk is provided in glass bottles, which can be refilled at Nelly's in Lostwithiel.  Alongside Denby mugs in our cottages, we provide enamel mugs to use for your soft play drinks.  We offer mixed recycling for plastics and glass,  as well food waste composting.

Caring for the coast

Feel free to borrow buckets and spades from our giant sandpit in the playbarn to take to the beach, rather than buying more.  There’ s a beach bucket in the bike shed with wetsuits, bodyboards, buckets, nets and other beach paraphernalia - please borrow what you need for beach days and leave any usable beach gear here that you don’t want to take home.

Why not go for a family beach clean?  Take a look at the Beach Guardian's Beach Cleaning for Holiday Makers guide in your information file and collect litter picks from the playbarn. It's (probably ) the most fun you can have with a litter pick  AND a practical way to show your children how they can make a difference.
