Scattered around the UK in towns such as Saffron Walden are 'launderets' 
(this one is not in OSM, and I hesitate to put it in as my memory of the 
location is not good, though Google looks to the correct)  .. self 
service machines coin operated (usually with very expensive coin 
operated soap powder - better to buy that at the local supermarket).
Sometimes you may find a 'supervisor' .. most of the time not. I think 
there is little difference between the two .. though usually the camping 
crowd are more friendly.
My memory of the location such places is vague .. while a good thing to 
use they are not something that I find that attractive, I tend to 
remember the town, where I staid, the people and attractions I found.

In the more populated parts of Australia and NZ you can find 
'Laundromats' .. similar to the UK ones but with a better climate.
