WE LOVE…Ecotoilets
Eco friendly shower and toilet facilities from Ecotoilets

A shower and toilet you can install pretty much anywhere – what’s not to love? The team behind the  popular Ecotoilets composting loo has launched washrooms with a pumped or mains water shower and Separett toilet, available in a traditional wooden ‘cottage’ or a more contemporary natural resin pod – the Egloo.

The units benefit from a gas water heater, which is locked away in a cupboard for instant hot showers any time. Showers are low water use so great for your green credentials too.

Cheeky Monkey TreehousesWE LOVE…
Glamping in the trees from Cheeky Monkey Treehouses

Taking us back to our childhood, the charm of tree house living is captured by the team at Cheeky Monkey Treehouses. Bespoke glamping structures can be situated in and around trees or on raised platforms should trees be in short supply. Builds can incorporate utility supply and disabled access, and are building regulations compliant. Towers and rope bridges can also be added to make design truly personal. Of course, ‘play’ treehouses are also available – a fantastic add on for family friendly sites.

We love the attention to detail and personal consultation service with hand-drawn, three-dimensional drawings allowing you to visualise and tweak your grand design before the build commences.

WE LOVE…Albion Canvas (Boldscan)
The Clubhouse from Albion Canvas (Boldscan)

The Clubhouse is a multi-use safari tent based on an aluminium frame, available in 6m or 9m span to any length in 3m bays – perfect for use as a communal space.

We love its unique look and have seen it used on sites as an event space (for weddings and other gatherings), cafe and shop, including at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Knowsley Safari Park and Twycross Zoo. The Safari style Clubhouse offers the convenience of the clear span structure (no poles gettgin in the way) with a more rustic look, while the new Contemporary version (in white with a slate blue roof) is more striking.

Ashwood Shepherd HutsWE LOVE…
Wood fired hot tubs from Ashwood Shepherd Huts

Naked Flame hot tubs were added to the product range from Ashwood Shepherd Huts three years ago, and are a perfect fit in our opinion. This brand is wood fired and, with no need for electricity, can be located nearly anywhere. Available in spruce, larch, red western cedar and Thermowood, these tubs are very efficient to heat. Both cedar and Thermowood will not shrink, swell or warp excessively, even when subjected to changing degrees of temperature and moisture. Tubs are expected to last for over 20 years without the need for additional wood protectant.

What nicer way to add to your glampsite than with a low maintenance, off-grid, luxury tub?
