Finds for the ecologically conscious glampsite owner
The Egloo pods from Ecotoilets
This moulded structure consists of four sections of natural plant material and pine nut resin. They lock together to give an attractive and extremely durable weatherproof toilet pod with a solar vent and translucent roof. The Egloo comes fitted with Ecotoilets’ waterless toilet system and accessories. It is wheelchair accessible and needs minimal maintenance for exacting eco standards.
Financially, the Ecotoilets composting toilet systems have big benefits; no sewage pipework, no added electrical wiring, no pit digging and installation within a day. What’s more, Egloos are guaranteed for 30 years and available in a range of colours to blend in or enhance any site.

Wood-fired hot tubswith an optimised design from Forestflame Wood-Fired Hot Tubs
A simple, eco-friendly way to enjoy outdoor bathing without the need for electricity, wires or chemicals. The UK-based team has rengineered the traditional Swedish hot tub concept with an optimised boiler design, durable Western Red Cedar tub with a long-lasting stainless steel firebox and flue.
Guests need simply fill the tub with two cubic metres of fresh water and light a wood fire in the totally submersed firebox. The water heats to between 35°C and 40°C and can be controlled by adding more wood and varying airflow into the firebox using the attached regulator.
We also love that they are handcrafted in the Peak District National Park and you can rent before you buy!
