Elemental & Ecological
We think of Y Felin as ‘elemental’ in the sense that it works with, rather than against, the natural elements that surround it. The house was recently refurbished with a visible commitment to the use of local materials and renewable energy. Our use of local oak, slate, air source pump and firewood from the farm all work together to keep your and our environmental credentials in tact.
The air quality here is exceptionally good and is evidenced by the lichen that can be seen on the surrounding trees. The water is also very pure – your drinking water comes from an underground mountain spring *as an extra precaution it also passes through a purification system as it arrives in Y Felin.
Your hot water and heating is produced using renewable energy – currently an air source pump; and an ambitious hydro scheme will be installed in 2011 which will generate all the electricity for the farm. This system will simply restore the original hydro system which generated electricity from the river up until the 1970s when ‘proper’ electricity was proudly installed by my family!
If you wish to have a fire – outside or inside – the wood comes from the farm and we are regularly planting broad leaved trees to replace those felled. A fire pit with log seats has been made available for your sole use.
