The Green Tourism auditor has visited the huts and a GOLD award looks possible. Watch this space!
Here are some of the green credentials highlighted in the Green Tourism report:
The Huts in the Hills comprise four fully insulated two person accommodation huts and one communal utility hut on an environmentally managed small holding. The owners are very environmentally aware and demonstrate a commitment to running the business in a sustainable manner. The utility hut provides filtered water from a spring, a shower heated by the wood burning stove, using locally sourced wood, and a modern compost toilet. Environmental cleaning products are provided and the grey water is processed by a sand filter. The low energy lighting and the fridge are powered by wind and solar power using a battery solar system.‘bq.
