New Loo & Shower
Many people have been asking about our new loo and shower. The old bucket shower is still working but we have got a bit more organised and we’ve upgraded. As you can see in the photos we’ve got a new flushing loo and a sink with hot and cold running water. We actually have two hot showers and flushing loos now, with a couple more about to come online.
Everything is in a new wooden building where the old long-drop loo used to be. The long-drop loo has been moved to a new location sort of discretely in the middle of the site. there are actually two long-drop loos now.
Washing Up Stand
We have a lovely washing up stand with two large sinks and a huge draining area made of reclaimed slate. It has hot and cold running water from large commercial kitchen sink shower taps. All the water on the site is drinking water, even from the standpipes so no need to buy lots of bottled water if you don’t want to.
The Bucket Shower
The shower has a very simple operation. First, take one of the metal buckets and fill it with water. Heat the water by putting the metal bucket on your campfire. Carry the hot water back to the shower (taking care not to burn your hands) and tip it into the shower bucket. Add cold water get the right temperature and to make a longer shower time. Hoist the bucket into the tree and turn the tap on.
We also have 2 very nice long-drop loos. If these are at all smelly then please let us know as we keep loads of saw-dust on site. A liberal sprinkling is all it takes to make them sweet again.
Our barn has sockets and a freezer for re-freezing your icepacks. it is a great communal space. we sometimes set up a bar there and occasionally have live music.
The barn has got it’s own page in the galleries section.
We have some really cool tents set up for hire. If you want to check them out please look at the Our tents section in the galleries section or visit this website to make a booking
