Toilet and Shower Facilities

We now have a new toilet and shower on the farm, this is a great relief to those campers who occasionally feel the need for creature comforts. They are a 7 minute walk from the woodland site.

In the woods we have 2 very comfortable compost toilets.

These are highly efficient and simple to use They do not smell if you always remember to put in the wood chippings after use. Always close the lid after use, and wash hands with alcohol rub provided. Then all is well with the world.

Remember to bring a washing up bowl, and drinking water container.

We also bring down fresh water on a daily basis, in water containers for communal use.

There is a tap at the farm for refills.

Toilet and Shower Facilities

We now have a beautiful new toilet and shower on the farm.

This helps all those campers who are desperate for a few creature comforts when necessity calls.

When camping in the woods, remember to bring a washing up bowl.

In the woods we have 2 compost toilets, these are simple but comfortable to use. We find they are an highly efficient system, and generally do not smell if you always remember to put in the wood shavings after use.

This is a duel chamber system, which means that urine goes into a separate chamber.

Water, please bring a drinking water container, you can fill this up at the farm.

We bring water down to the woodland on a daily basis in containers. These are for communal use.
