Acre & Shelter is an eco-minded and sustainable business. Living sustainably is important to us and we endeavour to do what we can for the environment. The accommodation and site has been sensitively designed and restored using wood from the farm, reclaimed materials and English antiques. We have used upcycled and reclaimed materials in the design and interiors of the yurts. All plastic, paper and glass is recycled. All our toiletries and cleaning products are earth friendly. In addition to this we seek to work with local businesses who share our values and ethos.
