Our goal is to move our energy sources “off-grid” by the end of August 2023.
Focus on Renewable, Efficient Energy
We have installed solar panels and wind turbines onsite to generate renewable energy which will provide power for the glamping pods and communal buildings including the shop, fire pit and BeeHive.
9 discreet wind turbines
36 solar panels
Private bore hole and filtration system (council certified) providing deliciously fresh water straight from the source to our glamping site
Energy efficient air source heat pumps to heat the hot tubs
Electric car charging ports onsite
Water butts used to collect rain water to water the glamping site
Upcycle, Recycle & Reduce Single-Use
We reuse and upcycle wherever possible, maintaining luxury standards whilst committed to our sustainable policies. We’ve even featured on the BBC’s Money For Nothing for busying an upcycled archway for Foxglove.
Furniture & features around the glamping site are made from upcycled materials
We reuse items from the farm to create planters, including giant tractor tyres
We have reduced the number of single-use items we use in our cleaning processes and aim to be 0% single-use by the end of 2023
Support the Community
To us sustainability isn’t just about renewable energy and the natural environment, but about supporting our local community too.
Employing local people who might not find it easy to join the 9-5 workforce
Working with local suppliers for our special occasions, catering options and laundry service
Working with a local energy efficiency firm to develop our sustainable energy programme
Working practices to minimise our impact on the local environment such as car sharing
Encouraging our guests to visit attractions, producers and retailers in our local area
We’re farmers and still operate our dairy and sheep farm along the track from the glamping site. Our glamping site is in the heart of nature and our guests can truly appreciate how animals and our natural environment impact our business values and add to their experience.
Highland cows, alpacas and rare breed sheep
Pick Your Own eggs from Cluckingham Palace, feed the chickens and enjoy watching them peck around the glamping site
We grow apples, plums, strawberries and cherries that guests can pick and enjoy
The land around the pods is a wildflower and grass meadow, changing each season
Our wildlife pond is a hive of activity with frogs, birds and dragonfly making the pond their home
