So you have the perfect wild location that you are planning to run a Glamping site from, and are now thinking about toilet facilities?
You have no water or electricity?
Yes, perfect for compost toilets. Compost toilets are waterless toilets that need no power or running water and, managed well, create no smells and lovely compost to boot.
Here at Free Range Designs we have been making wooden composting toilets for camp sites, glamp sites, allotments and gardens since 2004. Our first compost toilet was built for a glamping site in Hay-on-Wye and since then we have designed and built over fifty toilets now installed all around the country.
Having a compost loo for your camping / glamping site is one of the bare necessities. Composting toilets offer a neat green solution, encouraging campers to not only enjoy themselves, but help the environment at the same time – wonderful for the feel-good factor!
Some yurts and cabins are big enough for our toilets to be incorporated within the accommodation and here the lack of smells from the toilet and ease of turn-around between customers score highly as well.
Choosing the right compost toilet for you depends a lot on how many pitches you have and the type of guests you expect to host. We generally recommend having one toilet per six people, but this all depends on the location of the pitches and the level of facilities required. With luxury glamping sites you will most likely want to have the toilet and shower facilities adjacent to the accommodation, and this is when it becomes extra important that the toilet building is aesthetically pleasing and fits in well with the surrounding natural environment.
Sometimes it will be necessary to have full-access toilet facilities. Our Disabled Access Compost Toilet has been installed on a wide range of off-mains locations, including campsites, riding stables, fishing lakes, allotments and church grounds, and comes complete with access ramp and grab rails, conforming to government legislation for its internal dimensions and ramp gradient.
