ABOUT THE ECOTEL

The Ecotel has been established by the Kerans Family to provide unbeatable value in accommodation while achieving growing ecological benefits.

The Land

The Ecotel is located on what was a 19th century dairy farm. Native wildlife is being protected and the regeneration of plants encouraged.

Water and waste

Low flow shower heads have been installed and rubbish is being recycled. Liquid soap and shampoo dispensers are being used as an alternative to packaged products to reduce waste. Cleaning and laundry products are phosphate free and biodegradable and clothes are sun-dried whenever possible for ultra-violet sterilization and to reduce energy consumption.

Dual flush toilets and water tanks have been  introduced. Subsurface irrigation has been installed for when a new greywater recycling plant is built.

Energy

Twin wind turbines have been installed on the entry sign to generate power for low wattage outside lighting. Solar panels for hot water heating and solar cells and a co-generation plant for energy are planned.

Friendly by Nature

The Kerans are keen to create opportunities for people who stay at the Ecotel to share ideas with the staff and to enjoy the company of other guests, if they choose, by using the communal facilities.

ECOLOGY

Ecology

The scientific study of  the distribution  and abundance of living organisms and how the distribution and abundance are affected  by interactions between organisms and their environment.

When you talk about the ecology of a place, you are talking about the pattern and balance of relationships between plants, animals, people, and the environment  in that place

Everything is connected to everything else.

The term ecology was coined by the German biologist Ernst Haeckel in 1866 when he defined it as the comprehensive science of the relationship  of the organism to the environment.
