Merlin Farm is a sustainable and Eco Friendly business.
All the Cottages are powered by UV via 216 solar PV panels in our south facing field. Water is heated by the SUN. Our Eco Cottages
are heated underfloor using a
ground source heat pump. They are so well insulated to maximise energy efficiency & the Cathedral Style windows means they are often heated by passive solar alone.
We planted 250 Trees on our farm as part of our future sustainable fire wood programme. Our guest toiletries & eco cleaning products are refillable.
We provide a GREEN GUIDE
for our guests suggesting ideas such as car free days, raising awareness of environmental
& conservation issues in our area and the importance of eating & purchasing locally.
We have been awarded a GOLD Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme and a Platinum Green Leaders Award from Trip Advisor. Read more...
