Willowtree Glamping Sustainability Policy

Our Commitment: At Willowtree Glamping, owned and operated by Ciara and Derek Tiernan, we are deeply committed to creating a sustainable holiday destination for you to enjoy.  

Our goal is to offer a luxurious glamping experience that harmonises with nature and minimises our ecological footprint.

Waste Management and Recycling:

  • We ensure professional sorting of all waste to maximise recycling.
  • Our efforts extend to minimising single-use plastics by using refillable soap, shampoo, and conditioner containers.
  • We continuously seek eco-friendly alternatives and reduce packaging, particularly in cleaning supplies.

Eco-Friendly Accommodations:

  • Our accommodations are built on-site using locally sourced, sustainable materials, including reclaimed timber.
  • We practise over-insulation in our cabins to enhance energy efficiency and reduce heating needs.
  • Our heating systems are fitted with timers and thermostats to ensure economical usage.
  • Towels are not provided to reduce water and energy consumption associated with laundry.

Water Conservation:

  • We recycle water from our hot tubs for irrigating trees, demonstrating our commitment to water conservation.

Harmony with Nature:

  • We utilise natural stone from our land for construction and avoid chemical treatments on our property.
  • Our site features over 2,000 planted native trees and plants that support local wildlife and biodiversity.

Community Engagement:

  • We actively participate in local clean-up initiatives, reflecting our dedication to the community and the environment.

Future Sustainability Goals:

  • Our future plans include investing in solar energy and continuing our tree and shrub planting initiatives.
  • We aim to further reduce plastic usage and explore more sustainable practices.

Education and Awareness:
