(Website hidden by Airbnb) Cannot live without wife, Ceilia. Proposed to her up Mount Everest 1978. We got fed up of city life, quit, moved to to Snowdonia mountains / Welsh heritage we love. Grafted and engineered to create refined, guesthouse running entirely on renewable energy. Stunning location with half mile ramp coming down mountain to our garden ( 1880's slate deliveries to Fffestiniog Steam railway). Spot us from 6mile out coming from England. Love sharing our eco dreams and the outdoors. After 25years teaching technology, the last 6 years we have evolved, refined and share our Carbon zero guest house. 700ft up a Welsh mountain with all energy input from renewables. We did what most parents only talk about in pub. Children went to uni so we sold up, left the country ( big city Coventry in England), took a huge salary drop and moved to stunning area of Wales we have loved for 30 years. Work 7 day per week. Do engineering, plumbing, everything and far happier than when I was number 3 in a multi million pound school. (Website hidden by Airbnb) If guests want, I enjoy sharing how our semi in Coventry ( with solar panels since 1983) inspired us to develop a even gentler approach to living with our Welsh adventure. Bangor uni used me for 4 days on a Ireland trip sharing how to lower carbon footprint, hands on approach to greener living. Still only a volunteer have not mastered the getting paid bit yet ! Oxford exam board did a 3 page A level question on us years ago. (Website hidden by Airbnb) Hard eco accesments from GREEN TOURISM, GREEN LEADER ( trip advisor) SUPERHOMES, GREEN KEY from 2007 have alway put us at the top awards, some of these are Global awards not just UK or Europe. A few large places / business have green policies and are working towards...?. The two of us powered by a green passion have gone Carbon Neutral 2013. 3 Electric car charger ( one specific Tesla point) 2013 but we have ev points since 2012 with 100% successful charges. All Green electric. The industry needs to catch up with us. Wi fi is free (Website hidden by Airbnb) Food is as local as we can get. Own veg plots, orchards, local meats, own ducks and a man called Bryn the Egg delivers fresh local farm eggs. As you would expect even the decaf /green tea is Fairtrade. I bake artisan fresh bread each morning. Local honey, ( bees live 1k away),local sea salt. Veggie / Vegan we have been providing for a decade, why do places find it hard?
