Are these the most luxurious toilet facilities on a campsite?

Normally my bathroom facilities look like this on my backpacking trips.

Mary and I went away for the weekend in the motorhome, visiting a national trust property and taking it easy. Not the greatest of weather, but I was greatly impressed by the quality of the toilet facilities at Treversal campsite on the Derby/Notts border.  Heated flooring and individual cubicles with shower, toilet and washbasin which were impressively clean.  Probably the best I have ever seen and I include the facilities I have seen in Germany and Austria which are usually of a very high standard.

A bit of luxury on a pretty foul weekend- I wouldn’t have fancied being in a tent in the small hours of this morning, our van was rocking around like crazy in the wind and rain !

    Blimey – on a campsite, I’d be scared to…..
    Well I think you know :)

  2. We’ve been to Teversal a couple of times with our motorhome Mark. They are rather nice facilities aren’t they?! Did you notice the dog shower? Dixie was none too impressed with that…

    The facilities at Scotgate in Braithwaite, Cumbria are pretty special as well.

    • I have walked from Braithwaite but not stayed there. One to remember for next time I am in the area. Not such a high standard, but I like the facilities at the campsite at Boot, Eskdale and the excellent drying room.

    Are you suggesting at the beginning of this post that you use your tent as your bathroom when wild camping??!

    Sometimes, Mark, I yearn for the days when campsite luxuries consisted of a standpipe that sprayed water over your feet and a tin drum filled with dubious chemicals on which you sat in a hut while clutching a roll of your own paper. Then I see stuff like this and I think: Hmmm . . . Perhaps the good old days weren’t so good after all.
    Cheers, Alen.

    • Sounds very much like the facilities on most campsites in the early seventies when I was a lad and we used to camp as a family all over the UK. I think I prefer either the great outdoors or the luxury I found at this site :)

    I prefer the first one for all that!.
    Any campsite with that opulence would surely be crowded.
