A new concept in sustainable camping has received planning permission.
Jon & Daniel May received planning consent for 7 sustainable tents on their farm on St Mary's, Isles of Scilly that will be self-sufficient in water, waste and energy. Aardvark has been working on the scheme for 5 years since its conception.
The tents, which will sleep up to 6 people will each have their own bathroom pod and kitchen, with the hot water supply coming from a central biomass boiler system, the water supply will come from on-farm boreholes.
The scheme which will provide valuable farm diversification income for Peninnis Farm hopes to become a flagship trourism project on the islands and a proactive response to a changing and increasingly challenging tourist market as the number of visitors to the islands seek new experiences.
