They have been working hard to make this place as environmentally friendly as possible. They have done a lot of hard work to set this centre unobtrusively into the surroundings. For space heating they usually use wood and in compensation they have planted over 6000 trees. To minimize carbon emission, they use solar panels help heat the water. The vegetarian food is produced in either the center’s own garden or sourced locally from nearby farmers.



Horses grazing besides a tent


Accommodation is in a renovated time-honored island cottage which used to be the main guest house. Using sustainable and environment friendly materials, they have refurbished this traditional cottage and built an extension for additional accommodation. To make this place warm, relaxing and comfortable they used eco-friendly building materials including local woods, hemp and lime plaster.

One special feature of the centre is the communal sleeping arrangement is communal. But if you prefer more privacy, you can ask for a single room. They can arrange single room for you depending on which course is taking place. Don’t be intimidated, if single room is not available you can easily book one in a local B&B which is steps away from the centre. If you are little adventurous or on a tight budget, you can camp near the centre. In that case you need to bring your tent.
