Straw Bale

We will soon be unveiling our newest holiday cottage on the farm, constructed of Straw Bales, rendered in lime, topped with a turf roof, and built with wood from trees felled on the farm. This cottage is about as eco-friendly as you can get it is even powered by the biomass boiler on the farm, which uses woodchip mainly from fallen trees here. The house has three bedrooms and can sleep around five/ six people. It has two bathrooms and one sitting room/kitchen/diner. We have used as many upcycled items and furniture as possible in furnishing the house, while at the same time, assuring that it is very comfortable for guests. It would be hard to find a greener holiday cottage than this one! A special property indeed. You can see the progress of the house at:
