Challow Farmhouse offers two luxury en suite rooms situated next to the main house with adjacent parking, both situated on the 1st floor. The entrance hall has the facility to store walking boots, coats and hats.
We also have a choice of two luxury en suite rooms in the main house, either with bath or shower, twin or double. Those staying in the main house have access to the stunning garden room day and evening to relax and unwind.
All rooms have the facility for making tea and coffee, home-made biscuits, hair dryer, TV, DVD and Wifi upon request which is currently only available in the communal areas.
We're trying to do our bit for the environment:
Heating - We have installed flat plate solar thermal panels inconspicuously on to the southern elevation of our barn roof to provide an ample supply of hot water. We also have our high efficiency wood pellet-fired gasification boiler heating system for both the farmhouse and the barn. The energy is provided by waste sawdust pellets, a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.
The design of the control system incorporates outdoor weather compensation, providing an energy saving of between 25% and 35% over conventional thermostatic controls. The recent construction of the barn and the total refurbishment and extension of the farmhouse include modern day insulation standards, minimising our carbon footprint.
Recycling - We separate organic waste and recycle plastic glass and paper.
Drainage System - We have our own private drainage system and to maintain this we should not use any chemicals as it is a "green system". Therefore only human waste and toilet paper should be disposed of in the toilet.
Cleaning - At Challow we clean with products that have been formulated to limit the impact on the environment.
Use of water - We use our own well, where possible for the garden and vegetable plots, and we also try to minimalise the use of mains water where possible.
