Our committment to eco holidays & carbon offsetting
While you’re at Trelowarren of course you’ll enjoy the exceptional comfort, warmth and the stylish finish in our houses – but don’t be deceived. You can be comfortable and green.
A clear carbon conscience
We’ve done our best to use natural building materials with as little embedded energy as possible; and our new houses have ‘super’ insulation well beyond building regulations (some of our old houses are built of cob and thatch – they knew a bit about super insulation in the old days); and the new buildings are designed to fully exploit the beautiful natural Cornish light; and last, but not least, we have led the way by installing a district heating system fuelled by a single bio-mass boiler.
That’s a few things we’ve done.
Even the tap water is pretty cool at Trelowarren. Most of our water comes from our own springs. It doesn’t travel, it doesn’t need to be filled with chemicals, it doesn’t leak, and it absolutely doesn’t come in plastic bottles.
What will you notice?
At Trelowarren we re-cycle as much of our paper, plastic, tins and bottles as possible. The recycling is situated across from the swimming pool in the car park and housekeeping will provide recycling bags in your cottage.
There is charging station for use by any of our visitors driving an electric vehicle. The charging station, provided by www.zerocarbonworld.org, is located by the car park at the entrance to the stable yard, which also houses our award winning New Yard Restaurant, The Pantry and the Lizard Art gallery.
