Cottesmore Hotel Golf & Country Club


West Sussex

A traditional golf and country club set in beautiful countryside offering 27 holes of golf, a state of the art gym, health spa and accommodation, close to Gatwick in West Sussex.

The requirement was to upgrade the boiler system as part of the club’s environmental sustainability initiative and wider refurbishment programme.

Baystar installed a 199kW pellet automatic biomass boiler including a feed system within an existing building, alongside a district heating system to transport the heat across the property, utilising existing radiator and hot water systems.  Baystar also completed the refurbishment of the leisure facility, plant and equipment, upgrading the dehumidification system, air handling and pool heating.

A project of this size will earn c£22,000 per annum in Renewable Heat Incentive payments for 20 years, and the fuel cost saving will be approximately 25%.


“The opportunity to thoroughly overhaul our heating requirements at Cottesmore was presented when the four LPG boilers and an oil boiler used to heat the hotel and health club were nearing the end of their useful life. I had made initial contact with another biomass installer before I was approached by Baystar. Their professionalism, organisation and technical competence quickly set them apart from the field. The project was extremely well managed by Baystar with minimal input required from myself. They took responsibility for the project, delivered on time and provided excellent after sales back up. A contractor that can deliver peace of mind when you have a business to run is invaluable.”
