Greenest Self Catering in UK

They are officially the greenest of the green.

Our friends and neighbours at Bluebell Croft just won the 'Green Tourism Goldstar'.  

That prestigious award recognises them as the most environmentally friendly self catering business in the Green Tourism Scheme - throughout the whole of the UK.  

(The activity centre award went to Glenmore Lodge where I've filmed twice this month.)

At Bluebell Cottage, Bill and Sukie Barber have a wind turbine, large solar array and massive wood burner, which means they don't burn any oil or gas.  

With a few cows (that's daisy), two pigs (who occasionally escape) and loads of hens, ducks and geese they raise most of their own meat.  Their large poly tunnel and vast veg patch produces just about everything else.

Guests seem to enjoy feeding the birds, helping with the milking or just tickling the pigs behind their ears (which they love too).  They run courses on meat & fish smoking, and also basket making.  

Oh, and the self-catering houses are wonderful!  Their hot-tub must have the best view in the UK.  Check out their website.
