 There are three straw bale constructions on the site. The main house, a holiday cottage and a cabin which has been constructed using straw baleson r a static caravan base. Each is slightly different in construction methods used. In main house lime plaster has been used. The cottage is more natural in the interior wall finish compared to the main house. The cabin was part of a doctorate thesis, and is more basic in construction than the other two.

Each has a spy hole to see the straw construction. The interior of the main house was all built by the owner including the bespoke kitchen.

All have wood burning stoves, whilst the main house also has a bio mass boiler.

Those coming on the tours will be entered into a draw to win a night at the Straw Bale Cottage, so you may be able to try it for yourselves.
