Why is this a greener holiday?

First, to truly minimise the environmental impact, guests are encouraged to arrive by public transport: the nearest train station is Llandrindod, which is 8.6 miles away and 23 minutes by taxi. Onsite the owners have implemented a number of green initiatives including restoring a genuine Romany caravan for tourism purposes rather than constructing a new building. The Shepherd’s hut is a recycled horsebox, which is fully insulated. Sustainable wood from farm is used in Chiminea. Solar panels help provide electricity. The owners have undergone an extensive amount of conservation work on the organic farm which helps protect habitat and improve biodiversity. All waste is recycled where possible.
