|Why should you be listed||
For the last 20 years we have been an ethically run green tourism business providing self catering accommodation in five small cottages. We have held the Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold award for many years. This is only awarded after a rigorous inspection every two years. We garden organically, pay close attention to our energy use, recycle and reuse as much of our waste as possible and encourage our guests to help us in our efforts to run our business as ethically and sustainably as possible.
We encourage our guests to integrate with the local community by shopping locally and using other local facilities in this very rural area. This includes local churches, cinemas, small scale leisure facilities and public transport.
We manage our acre of land organically with a strong concern for the wildlife that it supports. This comes naturally to us as one of us is a professional ecologist by training. We use traditional methods such as hedge laying and dry stone wall building where possible. Our large garden pond is a haven for wildlife
|Local prosperity and Social Equity||
We have been actively involved with several local tourism groups over many years. These work together to encourage visitors to shop and eat locally, hence retaining visitor spend in the area. All our guests are provided with ample information about local shops and places to eat and visit.
