We thought that we had reached ‘peak treehouse’ after we finished Sunrise. Then we thought - what if we made a couple of tree houses that were taller, with kitchens; ensuite bathrooms; radiators and covered decks? It would be amazing, right? So we did! And they are!
Tilia and Quercus were designed and built simultaneously and have the same basic layout, but totally individual character. Tilia (named after the Lime tree) is in the main tree house woods and stands the tallest, with a sunny south facing view over the treetops. The open plan living area, can sleep up to six including the mezzanine, but can equally be enjoyed by a couple who want plenty of space for lounging on day beds.
With the reclaimed kitchen and bathroom cabinets and chevron wall patterns this is a unique holiday experience! We have kept the tree theme going in the hand made staircases and furniture. The beds in Tilia tree house have been crafted out of green hazel to make the most original four posters that you will have drift off in. They can move together to make three super king sized beds or move into six twin beds. These can also be made up as day beds to give plenty of lounging room. Climb the rustic staircase to the mezzanine for a true adventure in lying back and dreaming away in the tree tops.
While we have put in a fridge, kettle and toaster we thought that if you are staying in a treehouse you really should be cooking with fire. So when you stoke up the log stove and get cosy by the fire side you can also cook on the hobs and in the full sized oven. The thermostatically controlled vintage radiators automatically turn down as the log burner heats the room to maintain the optimum temperature This is the ultimate glamping holiday experience! Enjoy your meal on the round table inside or on the covered deck looking into the canopy and watching the clouds roll by. The kitchen is fully equipped all the pans, crockery, cutlery, implements, glasses and mugs that you could need. So with a piping hot shower, loo and wash basin complete with towels, you will wonder how you could better this rural holiday and if you ever need to leave!
Fire up the stove and get together for a meal. Get creative with the ingredients in one of our hampers or put your feet up with a ready cooked meals for hassle free feasting. You have a fridge to keep your food and drinks cool, with a freezer box for ice. Depending on your device the treehouse should have a good free Wi-fi connection.
