The Eco Guest House has recently been awarded Renewable Project of the Year as part of the Welsh Assembly supported Gwynedd Taste and Tourism Scheme, which goes along with a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
The renewable energy award recognises a number of initiatives which include a wood pellet boiler, turf roofs, sheep wool insulation, solar thermal panelling, rainwater harvesting, electric vehicle charging points, and two advanced log burners.
In fact everything about this guest house is green, from the locally sourced produce for breakfast, to the use of fair trade products, recycling, and even the double glazing of the conservatory with locally crafted plastic from just a mile away.
The inspiration and innovation at the heart of this guest house comes from John and Ceilia Whitehead, the husband and wife team which have owned the converted 1883 property since 2006. With teaching backgrounds and John’s engineering experience, the eco-credentials of the 6 bed guesthouse is constantly growing, with green innovation being followed by green innovation.
Owner John Whitehead said “We were really pleased to win the renewable energy award and are always looking to introduce new technology into the way we operate. We are passionate about all things eco-friendly and thank all the guests and local community for their continued support of what we are trying to do.”
