Family, food, rest.
The Eco-cabins Vision
Applegarths entire dna revolves around learning, food and wellness. Be it how to use the latest aeroponic techniques in agriculture or how to produce the finest pavlova, we aim to attract people from all over the country. We need to provide accomodation for people wanting to be part of this. Education is a strong part of why someone would want to come to Applegarth but we also want to provide a location that a family can come and relax and regroup.
With this, the accommodation that we intend to provide will be of a high standard and feel like a home from home. It is also designed to blend into the environment with a considerable amount of tree planting around it, along with raised beds vegetable next to each plot.
We intend to make it carbon neutral with as little impact on the environment as possible,
What is it:
1.9 acres to include
What will it produce:
low impact, carbon neutral accomodation.
2 full time, 2 part time.
Education & agri-tourism
Lessons in Aeroponic growing, micro herb production, other types of hydroponic & hyperlocal horticulture.
The site will include 12 cabins all sited on ground screws allowing for each plot to have as little impact on the area as possible. They will include:
A wood pellet fired hot tub
A raised bed market garden & aeroponic herb garden
An area to produce food, using the above..
Outside decking area
Over 300 trees will be planted both around and within the site. The whole premise of creating a glamping eco site is to provide an environment that is a calming oasis.
It will be about wellness in every sense- learning to eat well, reconnect with your loved ones and reconnect with yourself.
This will require a site that embodies exactly that.
Carbon Neutral- minimising the need for carbon producing energy in every way, we will employ multiple techniques across the site.
Heating will be achieved by ground source heat pumps & wood pellet stoves (which produce no smoke)
Lighting & electricity by way of solar PV & battery technology.
Waste disposal will be by way of a new technique producing sterilised compost for the trees on the site.
Relax and recuperate
Enjoy time out
These beautiful cabins blend discreetly into the environment with their wood shingle clad exteriors. Their interiors are stunning in both their low key, relaxed feel and modern convenience, a home from home. They come with all the convenience you could want in your own home but when you enter them you know that you'r on holiday, somewhere special.
Coming in both 2 bed and 4, they are the perfect getaway for both families and couples wanting to get away and learn how to grow.
They all come with their own hot tub and some, their own cooking facilities. They will each have their own raised bed of fruit and vegetables to tend and Tower garden's to pull salad from. Children will be shown how to plant their own seeds, pull a carrot out of the ground and then learn to cook it up.
