Luxury Eco Holiday Lodges In Porthtowan, Cornwall
December 20, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsRosehill holiday lodges prove that luxury doesn’t have to cost the earth. Built entirely from timber and using sustainable construction and insulation methods, the elegant wooden lodges combine high-spec, luxury accommodation with energy-efficiency. They are the first luxury eco holiday lodges in Cornwall and are open all year round.
Built by Pioneer, a Porthtowan based Environmental Building Company the lodges incorporate locally sourced larch, Douglas fir and cedar, insulated with recycled newspaper, and featuring bamboo flooring, low-energy lighting and turf roofs, each lodge also has its own solar panel to help with heating water.
The fully-equipped five star interior boasts king-size beds throughout, widescreen TV and a modern log burner, while outside on the generous, glass-covered deck there is a Jacuzzi, a heated drench shower and lock up beach storage.
The Rosehill team are committed to environmental practices but respect visitors’ freedom to make their own choices. Recycling by guests is welcomed and information is provided to encourage the support of local facilities and public transport, but without obligation. Mindful, too, that the term ‘eco’ can be used to ‘greenwash’ the public, the team would like to make it clear that some features of the lodges are not sustainable. As co-owner John Barrow says:
“We know we aren’t perfect, but we are working hard at improving our environmental credentials while aiming to combine luxury with sustainability. Our customers demand the highest quality accommodation. What we have done is to combine this with a responsible approach to Eco principles in the building of these luxury eco holiday lodges here in Cornwall.”
The luxury eco holiday lodges are beautifully sited in a woodland valley just a five-minute walk from Porthtowan’s sandy, Blue Flag beach on the spectacular North Cornish coast. The beach offers superb surf for the more adventurous as well as plenty of rock pools to explore for the little ones.
