I took time IMG_3311out recently to visit some of the places of interest locally.  Lulworth Cove, shown in the photos, is a stunning geographical wonder of the Jurassic Coast.

 

 

A day out walking followed bIMG_3322y dinner at one of the many restaurants in Lulworth is to be IMG_3316recommended.

 

 

 

Lulworth is a very popular tourist destination.  After a busy day sight seeing, Long Acre Bed & Breakfast is ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’, a haven of rest & tranquillity.

Wildlife in the Garden

Amongst the wildlife in the garden we have an unusually pretty bird.  Some deer have come to take a look too. Brandy the cat is respectful of Percy the Peacock, despite making eye contact only 3ft apart!

Green Energy

Posted on by Long Acre B&B

Erecting the solar panelsMany investments in green energy have been made over the past year:

  • In mid-July 2012 a solar panel system was fitted by the friendly & professional team at NGPS Ltd.   This produces electric which is used in house as well as exporting to the grid.
  • In the Autumn of 2012 the main house heating pipes were completely renewed and a mains fed pressurised system put in place, along with the incoming mains pipe too.  My grateful thanks to Trevor Lee for his commitment to this month long task.  Thanks also to neighbour Mike Smeaton for his timely assistance with his digger just before the cold weather started.
  • In February 2013 a solar thermal panel was linked to the new solar cylinder by NGPS.  This heats up the water in summer, with less reliance on the oil boiler.

We hope that these investments will ensure that Long Acre remains a comfortable place to stay for our visitors for many years to come. Many thanks to everyone who has made this possible.
