Pres Release


SUMMARY: Compost toilet manufacturer, The Little House Co have joined Kildwick Ltd, based in Skipton, to create what is possibly the largest compost toilet company in the UK. Bringing together The Little House Co’s specialism for land-based customers and Kildwick’s canal/boating users into one and combining the manufacturing, development and marketing skills of both businesses.

For Immediate Release: 10th September 2018

Two great British businesses have joined forces to create what is possibly the largest and most experienced compost toilet manufacturer in the UK!

With the widest range of waterless, off-grid compost toilets that can be installed virtually anywhere in houses, campsites, glamping sites, sheds, summerhouses, garden offices, shepherds huts, boats, campervans, and caravans, either temporarily or permanently.

The combined business will benefit from the design, technical and manufacturing expertise that Kildwick Ltd have created, with the marketing and promotion skills and different customer base of The Little House Co.

Martin Doyle, of the Little House Co. commented, “The first time I met Colin and Maria (Kildwick Ltd) was back in 2014 and we instantly became friends. Joining Kildwick Ltd seemed a natural thing to do and enables me to utilise their manufacturing and development skills so I can concentrate on the marketing and promotion aspects to bring all our products to the widest audience.”

“We’ve been working in cooperative competition for the last three years,” said Colin and Maria, of Kildwick Ltd. “Each of us tended to specialise in a different market segment, but with common values of quality, customer service and value for money. Bringing the businesses together will help us combine our strengths and eliminate our weaknesses”.

Both businesses have individually and collaboratively been working hard to expand the knowledge and understanding of the benefits and correct use of compost toilets, and have been instrumental in rapidly expanding the UK and international market for these solutions.

The Little House Co are based in the West Midlands and was formed in 2012 by Martin Doyle. They manufacture the Eco-Loo range of compost toilets, as well as reselling toilets from Swedish manufacturer, Separett.

Kildwick Ltd was formed in 2014 by Colin Ives and Maria Matthews and are based in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Using innovative production methods including fibre glass and 3D printed components, combined with traditional woodwork and metal crafts, they have created a unique range of products including the Kildwick Koodle - the smallest compost toilet on the market.

Compost toilets use no water and are not connected to any sewerage system. By automatically separating liquids from solids and dealing with each separately, they are an effective and odour-free alternative to conventional flushing toilets and chemical toilets and can be installed virtually anywhere, on or off-grid.
