Holifield Farm Project has plenty of compost loos in the camping and events fields, which our team works hard to keep clean and well stocked with toilet paper. There is a disabled loo and a sink for hand washing.
We have a sink for washing dishes, and rubbish and recycling bins are available to both campers and day visitors.
Near the entrance of the farm we have flushable toilets and a warm shower which takes 20 pence coins (20p = 2 minutes).
If you would like to experience our festival without the camping element, why not book a bed at Holifield’s new hostel? Due to open in April, the hostel boasts comfortable beds, beautiful views, and it’s just a stone’s throw from the festivities! Stay tuned for news of the opening!

Some benefits of compost loos:
the solid waste is dealt with on site, and doesn’t have to be treated with chemicals in sewage farms, or end up in waterways
saves water – you don’t have to use one resource (pure drinking water) to flush away another (fertilizer)
organic matter is allowed to go back to the soil where it belongs, improving soil structure and nutrition
chemical cleaners or bleaches are used in the toilet
they don’t contribute to the sewage sludge that is often dumped in landfill, or more controversially, put on to agricultural land
very low resource use – no pipes are needed to transport waste to a sewage farm, and no truck needed to remove solid waste
