Holestone Moor Barn Holiday Cottages

Wind turbine up 14 aUG 09d6adHolestone BarnHolestone Moor Barns Holiday Cottages are luxurious conversions from two 200 year old stone farm buildings standing adjacent to the owners' own house, Holestone Moor Farm

The funding was for the erection of a proven 15kW wind turbine on a 15m tower on land forming part of the property. The blades are 4.5m long giving a diameter of 9m. The turbine is grid connected meaning that the property draws energy from the turbine in preference to the grid but in times of no or insufficient wind, energy is drawn from the grid. Conversely when not all or part of the energy produced from the turbine is needed, it is exported to the grid for which Feed In Tariffs (FIT's) are paid. This has enabled the business to stay open during the winter months, increasing the number of overnight stays and reducing energy costs and carbon emissions.

Home of the Ice Age Hunter 

Creswell Crags is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and smaller fissures.

Stone tools and remains of animals found in the caves by archaeologists provide evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago.


LEADER funding was used towards a purpose-built stainless steel platform which gives access to view Britain's only known Rock Art. Discovered by archaeologists in 2003, the world famous engravings were carved into the walls and ceiling of the cave about 13,000 years ago by Britain's first Ice Age artists.
