We are incredibly passionate about sustainability. Whether it be through farming, producing our wool-based products, or during a stay within our shepherds huts – it’s at the heart of everything we do.
Through our sister business, Romney Marsh Wools, in 2022 we were officially accredited as ‘carbon neutral’ as part of our ongoing journey to reduce carbon emissions, become more sustainable, and build a better future for our planet. You could even say that it’s part of our DNA. Wool as a material is incredibly beneficial for the environment, with its bio-degradability and all-natural fibres, making it a good choice for the eco-conscious among us.
We already have a list of green policies and credentials listed on our website, which include our pledges such as supporting local, conserving the historic Romney Marsh pasture, having a minimal impact on the community, and creating products which are naturally processed, with no synthetic dyes or damaging chemicals.
Sheep have been grazing on this area of outstanding beauty since the 13th century, and each shepherds hut has been designed to ensure it is in keeping with the area. Created by a local craftsman Julian, together we were really sensitive to all of the materials we used.
Most of the products inside, too, are produced using the wool from our own sheep – including the bedding, curtains, throws, and toiletries, which are all produced with recyclable packaging. We also collaborate with local businesses who align with our sustainable promises, such as Biddenden Vineyards, Lost Sheep Coffee, and more. We also have an electric car charger on-site.
