Discover the Sheepy Meadows in Leicestershire
Sheepy Meadows is a new Leicestershire-based corporate and wedding venue celebrating its first sustainability award after only opening its doors last year.
Based in Sheepy Magna near the historic town of Atherstone, the property offers a solution for the rising number of eco-conscious couples and corporates. Owners Joe and Joanna Garland own multiple enterprises at the stunning Mythe Farm, including award-winning wedding venue Mythe Barn and corporate event management company Eventurous. The pair decided to launch the tipi setting, Sheepy Meadows, after recognising a need in the market for unique wedding and event venues that are easy to bespoke.
The owners began the journey towards their businesses being greener more than a decade ago. Thanks to numerous solar panels on-site, they’ve since saved enough carbon emissions equating to 8,000 trees being planted. Local biodiversity is also something the pair feel passionate about; from beekeeping to planting 12,000 new trees and a wildflower meadow on-site, the farm is home to some remarkable ongoings.
Following their recent ECOsmart award given by event and hospitality sustainability specialists, Greengage Solutions, the team are celebrating such an achievement. Co-director Joe says, “Living in a rural community, the environment has always been a focal point for us, and we’re proud of our mindful team who share these values. Being certified as an ECOsmart Silver venue has given us the tools to take our sustainability to the next level, continuing to provide a credible venue in the Midlands!”
