We support and encourage Green Tourism

We have a passion for luxury accommodation, but we have an even bigger passion for the environment. We’ve believe that being green isn’t a luxury, its a necessity. But, being green doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on luxury – you can have both!

Our commitment to Sustainable & Green Tourism:

  • We aim to raise awareness of living more green, to encourage guests to adopt greener ways of living, for when they return back home.
  • To be responsibly aware, we use and provide eco-friendly cleaning products during your stay; which is better for the environment and for your health.
  • Our complimentary bath goodies are 100% natural botanical and are all packaged in biodegradable packaging.
  • Wherever possible; we use recyclable or biodegradable consumables.
  • We also use bath robes and towels which are made from speciality cotton that make them fast drying, reducing the energy when laundering.
  • We carefully select indoor plants to remove toxins and purify the air inside the property.
  • We monitor and review environmental performance on a regular basis and always strive for improvement.
  • We are also mindful of ensuring our property offers something back to nature.
  • We actively create habitats to encourage wildlife such as bats, birds and mammals.
  • Our landscaping scheme has also been carefully designed to attract bees, butterflies or birds to feed.

 

 

DRIVING THE GREEN WAY FORWARD

Looking for luxury self-catering accommodation in the Brecon Beacons and need to charge your electric car? You can now stay fully charged when you stay with us!

We have two fast charging points located at our properties in Aberyscir. One solely for use with Tesla vehicles (7kw) and another for all Type 2 vehicles.

There are no additional charges to use this facility during your stay.

And the best bit; these charge points are powered completely by 100% renewable energy!

Charging speeds from fast chargers will depend on the car’s on-board charger, with not all models able to accept 7kW, or more. These models can still be plugged in to the charge point, but will only draw the maximum power accepted by the on-board charger. For example, a Nissan Leaf with standard 3.3kW on-board charger will only draw a maximum of 3.3kW, even if the fast charger is 7kW.
