North Lodge is being developed to create a friendly welcoming site which at the same time is run organically and sustainably. Over the last couple of years we have carried out steps to ensure that we are gradually reducing our carbon footprint and our visitors will enjoy a low carbon holiday.
•Put in insulation in the house
•Replaced an LPG heating system with a wood heating system.
•We have recently also installed solar water heating.
•Installed a low pressure shower (no pump but still the pressure), and a sunpipe for light in the shower room
So the Lodges heating and hot water are run from sustainable sources. We source materials and food from local and organic sources supporting our local community.
FOR THE CAMPSITE:
Any electricity used is on a green energy tariff, we have solar lighting for campers and for the set up tents, we have a mix of long and short grass for the ecology, we provide recycling and composting facilities. We do not allow cars on to the camping field, instead we provide campers with wheelbarrows for their gear, this has been welcomed as it means on the field you can be safe and it is also quieter. We have several ways of water saving. We also have our own growing plot and polytunnel. We do have other plans so watch this space, or ask us when you visit. We provide an information point for campers so you too can enjoy local food and attractions…
As a part of the development we have joined Sustainable Tourism International and carried out a process known as STEP which measures your sustainability and helps you to plan out your facilities. We feel that working together is the best way towards sustainability.
