The Fisherman's cabin has a very low impact on the environment. It's been built using local and reclaimed materials wherever possible, all the furnishings have been bought or made locally, many from second-hand shops. Being off-grid means every watt counts and discourages wasteful use of electricity. The water supply is pumped and filtered from the lake so we appreciate the importance of using water carefully. There's a modern composting loo, and a stop button shower.
One of our aims is to 'showcase' greener energy options and new technologies as well as harking back to simpler times, seeking the perfect combination of a back to nature experience without having to forego modern comforts. We provide plenty of info for our guests about to the local markets, shops and restaurants so they may take advantage of the fabulous local produce and help the local economy. Hassle free bike hire is available, one of the best ways to see the local countryside.
Waste is recycled or composted wherever possible and we use eco-friendly cleaning products. We provide many extras such as basic culinary items, bedding and towels and a small supply of organic toiletries so our visitors can travel lighter.
