2 bedroomed zero carbon cottage hot tub swimming pool fishing lake

Adults-only holiday home with indoor pool and fitness centre
our zero carbon cottage is the perfect choice
Barnacre Green Cottage is private and secluded, 400 metres beyond the other two cottages up Barnacre Lane (our private farm road), and is perfect for couples and families and people with mobility difficulties - see more details here (pdf). All on one level, it can sleep 6/8 in two family bedrooms (each with a double and single bed) plus the sofa bed in the living area.

But the cottage also holds particular appeal for those who want to make sure their holidays have as little impact on the environment as possible: the traditional green oak-frame and lime-panelled cottage's home-from-home atmosphere comes with minimal environmental impact. All the materials in the construction and fitting were selected for their low environmental and carbon impact, there is not a lick of paint anywhere (we use limewash), and Barnacre Green cottage is self-sufficient for all energy, water and waste water. In fact, the building of the cottage was filmed by the BBC in 2007 and featured on It's Not Easy Being Green - so you really can enjoy your holiday guilt-free!

1/5 Terrible

Would NOT recommend
Although the location is lovely I Messaged the owner a day before our stay to ask about the check in process. He then informed me not even 24 hours before our stay that the pool would not be open. I explained how this is the only reason we booked but he was extremely unsympathetic. The owner knew about the pool not working a week before but decided not to tell us so we would no longer be eligible for a 50% refund. There was no form of compensation. Furthermore, check out was at 10am and the owners daughter came and started filtering the pool at 9:30 which made us extremely uncomfortable. Purely for those reasons, I wouldn’t book again.

5/5 Excellent
