Our Yorkshire Dales eco-lodges have either 2 or 3 bedrooms and come with either a family bathroom or all en-suite bathrooms. They are beautifully built with a contemporary style exterior, and have been given the Green Tourism Gold award for their sustainability.
The custom-designed timber cabins are built from sustainable wood, have biomass heating, and use a source of natural spring water as to not impact the surrounding environment. Even the luxury toiletries provided are responsibly sourced using natural ingredients.
Our Derbyshire Dales resort is the ultimate green destination. The resort is devoted to providing sustainable holiday accommodation, and holds the Green Tourism Gold award. Much of the electricity onsite is from renewable energy sources, such as the wind turbine and the solar tracking system. The resort even offers a 10% discount for guests arriving on foot, by bicycle or on horseback!
The comfortable cabins on offer here have low-energy light bulbs and draw water from the farm’s own bore hole. The insulation is made of real sheep’s wool and all the cleaning materials are environmentally friendly.
John O’Groats boasts a spectacular coastline, beautiful countryside and fascinating wildlife.
