Designing Sustainable Luxury: A Peek into Our Eco-Friendly Holiday Home Blueprints

Luxury Green Living


There was a time when luxury meant excess, with abundant space and lavish features like a home gym or indoor heated swimming pool. The way we view luxury is changing to include sustainability, though, as modern homeowners prioritize features like energy efficiency, and eco-friendly building materials. Growing awareness of the climate crisis and the impact of individual choices on the wellbeing of our planet has led to an increase in more thoughtful consideration of building practices, and there has been a surge in people looking for greener properties. Is sustainable luxury a realistic goal? At Cookswood, our eco-friendly holiday homes showcase the authenticity of luxury green living.

Prioritizing Sustainability in Somerset Eco Retreats


At Cookswood, our goal is to create a development that preserves natural beauty and protects the environment. That is why we offer eco-friendly activities and use innovative construction technologies, to minimize our environmental impact. By taking a sustainable approach to development, we believe that we can live in harmony with the natural world and create a thriving community in harmony with nature, designed to be enjoyed for generations to come.


Creating Energy Efficiency in Luxury Homes


Our vacation homes are constructed using principles of sustainable architecture, in order to limit their impact on the environment. In every aspect of the planning and construction process, we take an eco-friendly approach, choosing sustainable building materials and mindfully designing and implementing our heating, cooling, plumbing, waste, and ventilation systems. We approach this through several different elements of energy-efficient design.


  • Solar Panels: We are working towards taking our ancillary and leisure buildings off the power grid, using solar technologies to accomplish self-sufficiency in our power supply. This will help us contribute meaningfully to a cleaner, more sustainable future.

  • Air Source Heat Pumps: Each of our properties is fitted with an air source heat pump to provide electricity and hot water. Having these standard will result in homes that are more economical and environmentally friendly.

  • Recycled Stone Work: Throughout the construction of our properties, we use sustainable practices, choosing locally sourced materials and limiting transport footprints. Our natural stonework is crafted using recycled local stone that has been excavated and shaped.

  • Electric Vehicle Charging: In all of our homes, electric vehicle charging points will be standard, in order to further our commitment to sustainability and a cleaner future. Our goal is to provide convenient, eco-friendly amenities to encourage residents to adopt electric vehicles and reduce their carbon footprint.
