The Wilson family have lived at Lower Gill for over 60 years as dairy and stock rearing farmers. In 1995 they diversified into the self catering holiday market. Lower Gill holiday accommodation nestles in a pretty wooded glade surrounded by open farmland and provides an ideal base for those wishing to enjoy a car-free holiday with excellent opportunities for walking, cycling and bird watching. All properties have their own patio areas which merge into the landscaped gardens, making this an idyllic, peaceful spot for a rural holiday.
We have solar panels and a wood chip boiler to run our heating system. We also produce our own environmentally friendly cleaning products.
In our effort to be environmentally friendly, we have installed a new heating system fuelled by woodchips, which is carbon neutral. All lighting is from low energy bulbs - saving a total of 25 tons of carbon emissions annually. To further support our sustainable activities we have a committed green team implementing the actions stated in our policy. We have on-site recycling facilities which our visitors are encouraged to use and we are now even producing our own environmentally friendly cleaning products. We continue to learn and develop and ensure the effective conservation of wildlife across our land.
