The bunkhouse is an agricultural building which was converted and thus saved from falling into dis-repair. Here are five ways that they ensure their accommodations is as eco concious as possible
- A wood pellet boiler provides hot water and underfloor heating in the bunkbarn, as well as providing hot water in the adjacent farmhouse for heating and domestic use.
- There is sheeps’ wool insulation on all external first floor walls.
- The foul water treatment plant is fuelled by small wind turbines to circulate the waste, rather than electricity.
- All domestic waste is either recycled or composted in a wormery.
- Guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport with a free pick up service from the local station at Ribblehead Viaduct, or Ingleton Community Centre if using buses.
