We do our best to minimise our impact on the environment and hope that our guests will too.
We use Green Energy for our electricity - this comes from 100% renewable sources. Our heating and hot water are supplied by a carbon-neutral wood pellet boiler. The appliances are chosen for their energy efficiency and all the lights are fitted with low energy bulbs.
Cleaning products are by Ecover and refilled locally. They are plant and mineral based and guaranteed not to have been tested on animals. Bathroom soap bars are locally handmade by Odds & Suds and are palm oil free.
We encourage guests to use our recycling and composting facilities and to avoid unnecessary plastic, packaging and waste.
As the cottages are within walking distance to the village with its amenities, bus stop and railway station, and to nearby attractions such National Trust's Cotehele it's possible to enjoy a car-free holiday.
