In replacing an existing inefficient boiler, Wooldown Holiday Cottages in Bude, Cornwall, has taken the opportunity to improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact by installing a Hoval BioLyt 36 biomass boiler to heat some of its holiday homes. Wooldown Holiday Homes was originally a full-board guest house but is now 16 properties operating as self-catering cottages.

The biomass boiler is installed in the main building and is used as a small-scale district-heating scheme to supply two holiday apartments with heating, hot water and underfloor heating.

Rowan Blewett of Wooldown Holiday Homes commented, ‘Since the installation of the boiler, we have not experienced any issues at all. We have found it to be a reliable and efficient system, more than suitable to our demands.

‘Due to the natural beauty of the properties, it was important to us that an additional outbuilding was not required, as this would detract from the appearance of the house. Hoval made sure this happened, delivering the components in parts and putting them together on site in the existing basement.’
