Eco-Friendly


Taras Richmond Farmstay is an eco-friendly establishment

The building has been constructed in an eco-friendly manner including solar passive design, double glazing and insulation throughout. We collect rainwater for drinking, and use untreated river water on the garden and toilets

All waste water is treated and used to irrigate a firewood plantation
Hot water and room central heating is run from a wood-fired boiler, creating safe, clean and cosy room heating
Around half of the electricity needs are sourced from solar panels installed on the property
Our orchard and vegetable garden supplies much of the produce (including home-made jams and preserves) used in the establishment in season
Our annual tree planting effort ensures that we are carbon positive!
Our aim is to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
