In the last few years they have invested heavily in installing a biomass shed and fitting solar panels.

The biomass supplies heating to all areas of the business, while the 200-plus solar panels produce power for the kitchen, bar, restaurant and refrigeration units. 

A large polytunnel and vegetable garden is used to grow as many vegetables and herbs as possible for the hotel, while local honey is also sold in the Village Shop.
