Eco friendly selfcatering cottages in Scotland

Eco-friendly holiday cottages Award winning eco-friendly holiday accommodation is increasingly popular so why not take you next break in an eco friendly holiday home: experience all the benefits of 21st century style and comfort whilst knowing that the environment and ecology have been given due respect.

We strongly believe that quality and luxury can live side by side with the care of our environment and there is a marvellous variety of eco-friendly holiday cottages which vary from eco-friendly old thatched cottages to newly built wooden lodges. You may wish to stay in a self-catering holiday cottage on environmentally friendly working farms where you can purchase fresh organic meat, eggs from chickens which are truly free range and vegetables from traditional organic gardens. Some have solid fuel Agas or Rayburns, which are synonymous with country living and good food. You may chose from energy efficient wooden lodges which have been individually hand built by skilled craftsmen and made of sustainable materials, where you can pamper yourself, sleep in king size beds, relax in your own jacuzzi and sit in the evenings in front of a biomass log burner for space heating.

The eco-friendly self-catering holiday homes are all well placed, allowing you to park up your car if you wish, and move around the countryside on foot, on a bicycle or on horse back and are situated in some of the most beautiful unspoilt countryside, and in old quant villages and hamlets. There are green holiday cottages which have in their grounds or are nearby to lakes stocked with organic fish, giving you the opportunity to both relax and bring home your own tea.

Self-catering ecofriendly holiday properties come with a raft of environmentally friendly features. Many of the eco-friendly homes offered are heated by solar panels and of course all are lit with low-energy lighting and have full recycling facilities including composting. Some offer water from natural springs, others have mains drinking water but filtered rain water is used for washing.

A lot of attention to detail has gone into ensuring that top quality furnishings blend in with the traditional character of the buildings of our eco friendly holiday houses, such as thatched cottages and refurbished traditional stone barns. Many self catering green holiday accommodation offer a unique blend of eco-friendly principles with 5 star comforts. Organic cotton bed linen, towels, environmentally-friendly hand soap, washing powder, washing-up liquid and dishwasher tablets are provided.

Make the most of your next UK holiday and reduce your carbon footprint by choosing from a comprehensive selection of eco-friendly green holiday houses, giving you the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing your bit to help preserve our environment. Green tourism is the way of the future!
