The Lodge:

Is a beautiful home built sustainably by your hosts Robyn & Malcolm Smith.

Made with timber milled from their farm.

This has been a labour of love with a huge amount of inspiration and hard work gone into its construction.

The Lodge is extremely eco-friendly it’s completely off grid.

The power is supplied by the waterwheel and a backup solar panel array.

The hot water is heated by solar panels on the roof in the summer

and a wetback in the wood burner in the winter.

The lodge is also heated by the same wood burner using wood sustainably grown on the farm.

The lodge is 100% sustainably powered and heated.
