  • We recycle all glass, tin, plastic and cardboard and encourage our visitors to do the same.
  • We use a skip instead of a rubbish hole or burning it
  • Sand filtration beds used in the septic system
  • As lighting requires replacement LED lights are being installed. Lights are on sensors and daylight switches.
  • Drying rooms heated by geothermal water is both provided for Campers and business use.
  • Internal heating provided by Radiator heaters which utilize geothermal water to heat.
  • Energy efficiency is a key determinant in all equipment purchases.
