We have chosen to make a responsible attitude to sustainability questions an important principle of this enterprise.
Along with a number of other initiatives, we have made the following serious serious commitments to treading more lightly environmentally:
- Ground Source Heating: a 62kW, upto 400% efficent heating system (enough for 10 homes) which provides all heating and hot water at the hall and Carriage House - with no compromise on comfort!
- Solar PV Electricity: 204 solar pannels (50kWp), producing enough electricity to run 10 homes
- Adopting conservation agriculture: we have changed our farming practices to move away from cultivations and respect our soils even more - you can find out more about this on the farming section of this website
As a result of the above, and other steps we have taken, we are saving, every year, many thousands of tonnes of CO2 and consumption of fossil fuels.
