Take a look inside The Bird house, a luxury treehouse that sleeps 2 adults. During your vacation stay, you'll have exclusive use of the new woodland wood-fired hot tub just a short walk from the property. The Birdhouse is a stilted treehouse in the woodland behind the yurts. You enter the site through a gate in the Hornbeam hedge and find a clearing alive with birdsong. The Bird house stands at the far edge of its tree trunk stilts. It’s clad in local cedar and the first impression is of a giant bird box with its large round window.

All the vacation properties are completely self-contained homes away from home, beautifully designed with stylish kitchens and bathrooms. There is even a Woodland Sauna where you can further unwind.

It is a magical place to truly unwind and get away from the stresses of working life
