Tinker was Britain's first tree house for overnight stays; most agree that the original is still the best! The enchanting Tinker treehouse is on the edge of the wood with mellow lake views from the balcony. Inside the octagonal interior, ivy winds up three ash trees growing up amongst the retro furniture. There are reclaimed Georgian windows set into each of the eight sides that let light flood in and the eyes gaze out. Tinker is perfect for a romantic hideaway or it can be booked with Thatcher's Corner Bell tents to create your own minicamp.
The Tinkers balcony offers plenty of private space in the trees to sit and watch the sun pass over the rolling meadow views. At night you can spark up the wood burner, pop the kettle on or BBQ on your balcony and watch the stars dance through the sky. You'll be cozy and warm as Tinker is insulated and comes with hot water bottles and spare blankets for chillier evenings.
We can provide you with hampers and ready cooked meals for hassle free feasting and you have your own large cool box to help keep the wine chilled with plenty of cookware & crockery to go round. Go down to the fully equipped Garden Kitchen for a wood fired pizza or use the free Wi-fi. Our quirky outdoor bathroom is perfect for a hot shower and a freshen-up.
Take a stroll around the garden, row a boat down the lake, or gaze up at the stars and toast marshmallows around the huge camp fire. We are near the beach and countless other exciting local attractions. Have a look at our activities menu to see how you can spoil, entertain or even edify yourself and your friends.
