Thornhill EcoHouse, Hope Valley

Open 10-4pm on both days.

Total rebuild on foundations of a 1930’s asbestos clad, timber frame bungalow, using recycled and local timber, Warmcell insulation, recycled slates and a south facing conservatory. Passive Solar design means the house is heated using solar hot water and just one woodstove. It has solar photovoltaic panels for electricity. Rainwater is collected for use in the house and garden and a reed bed is used for grey water recycling.

Travel: Nearest bus stop is by the funeral directors at the bottom of Thonhill lane. Your SatNav might not be that useful as the house has the same postcode as a nearby village. Springwoods is on Water Lane, an unmade road 200 yards up Thornhill Lane across the railway bridge, on your right. It is on the same road as Bamford Quaker Community, approximately 400 yards to the west. The pointer on the website's map is not that accurate.

In addition to being open on 23rd & 24th May for 'just turn up' visitors, the home can visited throughout May by making an appointment with the householders: please contact 01433 651865 to arrange a time to visit.

If you are attending on 23rd & 24th May then the householder can co-ordinate a joint visit to Thornhill and to the Bamford Quaker Community which is nearby. Please contact them for more information on 01433 651865.
