Green Policy

Unspoiled Nature

Cruck Barn Cottage is located in a beautiful unspoiled rural setting. We are lucky to be surrounded by old fashioned nature. The thick holly hedges provide habitat for small birds and animals and the paths and verges are home to many of the wild flowers, herbs and plants rarely seen today.

Preserving Nature

At Cruck Barn Cottage we are committed to playing our part in preserving the environment, and are proud to hold the Green Tourism “Silver” Award for our Green Initiatives. We welcome like-minded guests who will help us comply with Environmental Initiatives and benefit from this peaceful location.

Going Greener
