Solar Power

Thirlestane Woodland Lodges benefit from solar-powered electricity.  The photovoltaic solar array can generate as much as 50kW of energy at a time and this technology also has the advantage of working on cloudy days. Any surplus power is fed back into the national grid.

Ground Source Heating

Thirlestane Woodland Lodges are heated by ground source heat technology where pumps use a series of buried pipes that extract the energy from the sun that has warmed the ground. Each lodge has a pump that amplifies that energy to provide hot water and central heating.  

Sustainable travel, inc EV Charging

Kingfisher and Reivers Lodges have their own 22kW electric vehicle charging point.  What’s more, the lodges have superb proximity to Lauder and, with direct access along a pathway through Thirlestane Castle’s parkland, guests can take a cycle or walk to the town to enjoy its amenities.
