We utilise a bore hole system to provide all non domestic water, minimising our reliance on external water sources when watering the grounds.
Renewable energy is generated through solar panels, helping to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. We hope to expand this as soon as possible and are looking into wind and other sustainable sources of power.
By installing nest boxes, we provide a safe haven for birds, encouraging their presence and contributing to local biodiversity.
We have designated bug and insect boxes and areas, providing shelter and habitat for these essential creatures.
We manage our lower meadow in such a way as to provide the best possible habitat for our butterflies and other insects and small mammals to thrive. Adding to the biodiversity of the site.
We consciously limit paved surfaces to prevent excess water run off thereby reducing flooding.
We use organic fertilisers to nourish our plants and promote healthy growth, avoiding harmful chemical residues and unnatural growth.
Absolutely no pesticides or herbicides are used on our site, ensuring a safe and toxin-free environment for both wildlife and guests. All of our gravel areas are hoed by hand on a regular basis.
We employ natural deterrent sprays and other non-poisonous methods to control rodents, safeguarding the well-being of all creatures especially the many birds of prey that can be seen on site daily and nightly.

We carry out winter planting schedules for indigenous trees, promoting their growth and supporting local ecosystems.
All green waste generated on-site is either composted or woodchipped/shredded, diverting it from landfills and enriching the soil naturally.
We follow Guernsey’s comprehensive recycling program to ensure that all refuse is properly disposed of. Our units supply eco-friendly detergents which are refilled so as to avoid plastic waste.
