Holiday cottage near Edinburgh. Environmental friendly methods

How to convert, this holiday cottage pile of
linen and towels on change over day
from this




To this


We try and use the  power of the wind,
by drying the holiday cottage linens outside
(under a canopy in case it rains).
So even in winter it all dries naturally.


Other env. friendly considerations:-

Dead/coppiced wood from our woodland for the logburners.

Re-using tins/containers for paint and pigments for all the essential cottage maintenance.

The usual cleaning products, light bulbs,  roof insulation, secondary double glazing.
Recycling bins available. Compost raw vegetable waste for garden soil.
Harvesting wild fruit and herbs.
Using local producers.
