Everyone has their own lockdown story to tell. Whilst we have no guests we are still keeping ourselves active and busy with maintenance tasks, gardening amd looking after our spring lambs.
Our recent survey results are in.
We asked our current guests and followers on social media what they thought through a very short guest attitudes survey.
Our initial results show very positive feedback and strongly expressed concerns for the environment and the need for better approaches to sustainability.
To celebrate Green Tourism Week (4th-10th November), Independent Hostels UK (IHUK) have teamed up with the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) to highlight businesses with the Green Tourism award on the Independent Hostel Guide website and in the 2014 guide and to encourage businesses with an Eco outlook to consider applying for GTBS grading.
This is the week that the boiler finally arrived. What an exciting day with all hands on deck. Our initial worries about getting it installed were put to rest.
The new boiler is a Guntamatic Wood Pellet biomass fueled boiler using sustainable wood produce from Cumbria. We’re now looking forwards to firing it up for the first time and the heating coming on stream in time for reopening the Bunkhouse.
