Location: Hadspen House, Castle Cary

Description of Works: Installation of biomass boiler and associated works

Hadspen House is an exquisite Grade II Manor house situated on the edge of Castle Cary.  The original farmhouse was built by William Player between 1687 and 1689; the Hobhouse family acquired the house in 1785 and have owned it up until 2014, when it was sold to a new buyer.


Part of the estate is being restored and developed to provide luxury holiday accommodation within the existing farm buildings and cottages. Part of this development involved the building of an Energy Centre where it will provide heat, electrical energy and pressurised cold water which will be distributed throughout this area of the Estate.
