Eco-friendly cottages

Fight the good fight, but add a dash of luxury, with our eco-friendly cottages collection; think award-winning design, rare orchid meadows, electric car chargers, and protected National Trust land.

Thought that opting for eco-friendly cottages meant forsaking all the little luxuries? Lay eyes on this collection. If you're consciously reducing your carbon footprint, but still seeking an idyllic break away from the norm, our planet-friendly private homes await for your next sustainable staycation. We've sourced luxury houses where wildlife takes centre stage, beehives hide in rewilded meadows, non-emission technologies keep the hot tub warm, and spring water cascades into the bubble bath. Meanwhile, consciously-curated hampers overflow with artisan loaves, organic wines, homemade cakes, and cheddar from the local cheesemonger.

Conjuring images of cream teas on windswept moors and swan-diving into crystalline natural pools, our eco-friendly cottages and country homes are places for wilderness-seeking wayfarers and lavish holidayers alike. These are luxury eco-properties that keep local ecosystems, native wildlife, and biophilic design at the forefront of their award-winning interiors and ingenious architecture. Whether you have your green heart set on a 16th century Lake District farmhouse kept warm by its lime, cork and clay render, or a romantic cottage in Cornwall that runs on solar panels, these retreats go the extra mile to make would-be conservationists feel right at home.
