Environmental sustainability was important to the owners when they designed this conversion, as was the need to stay true to the original building and re-use as much of the original stone and other local materials as possible. The Dairy Cottage has underfloor heating supplied by a wood-pellet boiler which benefits from a £2000 annual RHI payment to keep it cosy and warm in the winter months.
