The Buckland Studio Retreat has been built and operates on environmentally friendly and energy-saving principles.
The studios feature solar passive design, whole-building wrap-around insulation, double glazing and draft proofing. Cross-ventilation also allows fresh mountain breezes to cool and refresh the studios, although air-conditioning is also provided.
Hot water is provided by solar heat pumps, with a full solar hot water service in Number 5. Our water-wise principles mean that we collect rainwater. Where possible we use enviro-friendly cleaning products. We have revegetated the spaces between the studios with native species, utilising thousands of seedlings; and we pay extra for Green Energy.
We hope these provide more reasons to feel good about staying at The Buckland Studio Retreat.
