Facilities

Our facilities reflect our environmentally friendly ethos. We have lovely composting loos, running water and our wonderful Wash Shack. We also have a small simple shelter as well as a washing up station. It’s basic and rustic but with everything you need!

 

Wash Shack – To be in harmony with the wood and to have as little environmental impact as possible we have built the Wash Shack. Sorry no turning on the hot tap here, it’s real off-grid camping! Heat your water in our giant kettle over the campfire, take it to the shack and use our watering can shower wash yourself. The Shack has earth friendly shampoo, conditioner and body wash for you to use. We also have a large tub to bath our youngest campers in.

 

Compost Loos – Our lovely compost loos are a great example of how clean, tidy and odour-less compost loo’s can be. Composting loos have been used for millennia as a very efficient way of creating a resource from a waste product, without energy or water consumption. The average family toilet uses a staggering 100,000 litres of water every year, which must be taken away, treated and purchased again: a costly and environmentally unsound cycle. Compost toilets require no water whatsoever (except a very minimal amount for cleaning). To help keep the compost aerated and odour-free wood chip is added. The wood chip we use is a waste product from our friend The Hut Maker.

 

Kitchen Shelter and Washing up station – We have a basic shelter that can be used as a camp kitchen and somewhere to shelter under on a rainy day. We also have a washing up area.

 

We also have fire bowls for hire and an honesty shop that sells firewood, kindling and a few campsing essentials.

 

The campsite is a five minute walk through the wood from the car park. We do provide wheel barrows to help you get your gear to the clearing, but remember whatever you bring you will need to carry.
