Each yurt has its own compost loo and urinal right next door (perfect for night-time wees!). They are just like regular toilets but no need to flush. A handful of sawdust is all that's needed.
We also have four brand-spanking new shower-rooms in the communal barn with hot showers and conventional flushing toilets if you prefer more comfort.
So what happens to the waste when you use the sawdust compost toilets? Well they get emptied in the spring before we open, and then the compost mulches down with other compostable materials (grass cuttings, kitchen scraps etc) before being used on the gardens. It's a brilliant eco alternative that we're very proud of here at Blackdown Yurts. If you'd like to read more about composting sawdust toilets, there is a good article here: https://bit.ly/2uIHpyr
