The cottages have been converted with the environment very much in mind. Wherever possible we have used local labour, stone and materials in carrying out the conversions.

All the cottages have been insulated to a high standard with double glazing throughout. The heating and hot water to the properties is provided by a biomass boiler located in the stable block. This uses wood pellets supplied only from certified sustainable sources.

Solar panels on the south facing stable block provide electricity for all the properties as well exporting any excess to the grid.

An environmentally friendly sewerage recycling plant has also been installed on the property.
