Holiday Cottage Directory Goes Green

What's your holiday choice to be - Composting toilet or Solar-powered swimming pool?

Established holiday cottage guide has added a new section on cottages with green credentials, which features both composting toilets and heated swimming pools.

Cottages listed include seriously dark green projects, like Newt Cottage in Northumberland which features an air source heat pump, solar panels, and a composting toilet. At the other end of the scale, Compton Pool Farm in Devon features king size luxury beds, power showers and an indoor swimming pool. However both sites possess a Green Tourism Gold award, which recognises their efforts in relation to environmental impact.

Jon Cockerill, founder of, commented "With increased environmental awareness, there seems to be a demand to experience sound environmental practice on a no-risk basis, via a few days in a holiday cottage". Jon added: "There is no cottage agency specialising in this kind of cottage, so we have taken it upon ourselves to list as many as we can find in our new eco cottages section. Nominations for additional cottages would be most welcome."
