Field House Farm Holiday Cottages Information
Environmental Green Policy
We are 4th & 5th generations of the family to live and farm on this land, with hopefully a sixth following on, and we are committed to the care of the environment around us. We believe that we are stewards, granted the care of the land and the buildings, ensuring that both will be in good condition in the future.
We hope you'll share our wish to look after the environment, to reduce waste, preserve energy and care for the surrounding countryside and wildlife. It's easy to play your part by following very simple suggestions offered in our visitors' handbook, found in each cottage.
If you are environment 'geeks' like us we can help you. We have storage for your bikes, train time-tables (Bempton station is only a ten minute walk away), suggestions about where to buy wholesome locally-produced food in our many independent shops. You can recycle easily - we have designated areas and bins.
At Field House, until 2017, we had to rely entirely on oil central heating systems, but we have installed ground source heat pumps for The Turnip House and an additional building which will open in 2018 as our newest holiday cottage. We're delighted to have been able make this transition, thus reducing our oil consumption and producing our own energy from the underground pipes installed in our garden. At High Barn almost all the energy for our cottages is produced by our nearby wind-turbine, which drives ground source heat pumps, extracting natural warmth from metres of piping in our surrounding fields. Surplus energy is exported to the National Grid. An additional turbine, near our grain sheds powers the post-harvest task of drying our corn before it is marketed locally. These two turbines, driven by the wind produce high levels of energy, feed the grid and save hundreds of pounds annually on our fuel bills. They were very costly to install, but worth the investment as this part of East Yorkshire is one of the foremost producers of wind powered energy in the country. We are keen to power our cottages environmentally but we never limit your use of heating or hot water, because we want you to be happy and comfortable in your cottage. All cottages are fully insulated to the highest degree and this helps save energy too.
High Barn also has a rain-water capture system. The water is stored underground and used in the w.c's and washing machines on-site- very efficient and very eco-friendly. We launder all our bed-linen and towels on-site, so no road miles are used to transport laundry. The wash powder and many of the household products we use are environmentally friendly also.
As participants in The High Level Stewardship scheme, approximately 150 acres of our land is wholly devoted to protecting local wild-life, flora and fauna. We plant strips of land with nectar-rich wild-flowers, and indigenous ground-cover plants to provide food/cover for birds, butterflies, bees and small mammals. It pleases us when our visitors walk around the edges of our fields, enjoying the fresh air, the freedom and space, plus the bonus of spotting wildlife. Of course, we continue to farm on a commercial footing and grow mainly wheat, barley and field beans, but this does not detract from our on-going support of local wild-life.
All the cottages include suggestions/ timetables for local transport/walking/cycling. Each cottage has a custom-made Ordnance Survey Map for the area. We are happy to suggest a wealth of local places and attractions to visit, so that our holiday visitors do not have to travel very far for a super day out.
We have well established links with local bat, bird and owl protection groups.
