Janet & Derek purchased Willerin in January 2006, and since then it has become a labour of love.
Our aim is to provide a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere for our guest, whilst at the same time making Willerin a place that treads lightly on the world.
Being on the banks of the Blackwood River we were very conscious of our responsibilities to ensure that activities carried out on our land doesn’t impact on the surrounding environment. As part of this approach in August 2007 we had a Biolytix treatment system installed, which treats all waste water from both houses. The treated water is then used to water the fruit trees in our vegetable garden.
We have also installed a 3kw solar power generation system consisting of 12 solar panels. These panels each have their own inverter, and are connected to the Internet. This allows for software upgrades and monitoring of the system to be carried out.
