Officially opened in 2011, the beautiful Visitor Centre at Batsford offers our visitors a comfortable and relaxed environment in which to enjoy a meal or some retail therapy. Less well-known is how much effort we took creating an environmentally sound building which fits in with the surrounding landscape.
The beautiful wooden building at Batsford is made from sustainably grown and FSC sourced timber and is both a triumph of sustainable architecture and a wonderful example of a sustainable building meeting 21st century needs.
The wooden building has a low profile roof which minimises its visual impact on the landscape and also reduces our energy consumption. A ground source heat pump provides under floor heating in winter and all grey water is recycled to supply the plant centre. The whole building is also insulated with wool from rare breed sheep.
Equally important though is the fact it offers our visitors a comfortable place to warm up after a winter walk and more space to browse the wonderful range of gardening sundries and gifts we have on offer.
