The Woodsman’s Treehouse is a totally private and unique experience set high up in the branches of a veteran oak. The ultimate retreat. A stylish combination of sustainable craftsmanship and luxurious interiors with a playful touch; highlights include your own sauna and hot tub on the upper deck, a revolving woodburner, an open air tree-shower and a stainless steel slide.
Opened in the summer of 2016, this is a magical setting that can only be described as ‘Utopia’, with uninterrupted vistas through the tree canopy across an enchanted Dorset woodland.
The Woodsman’s Treehouse’s grand pier-like boardwalk extends into your own private kingdom: a king-sized bed, a double-ended copper bath and the rotating fireplace that can be pointed toward the bed, sofa or kitchen. A particularly notable feature is a window in the floor, looking down to the stream below. The thick insulating walls feature picture windows that offer woodland views, and there is ceiling window above the bed that looks up at the impressive oak canopy above. We have not overlooked any of the practicalities either; the treehouse has a proper indoor flushing loo and an entrance lobby for coats and muddy boots.
The Woodsman’s Treehouse is available at £990 for two week nights / £1485 for weekends.
Outside on the huge rear deck there is a wood fired pizza oven and barbeque, as well as one of our now famous outdoor tree showers – supplied with endless piping hot water. It’s ideal in the rain or snow as well as on any other day.
From this level there is a spiral staircase up to the roof/spa deck, where you’ll find a hot tub and a sauna in complete privacy. It’s rather special to be relaxing up amongst the branches, looking through the woods towards the sunset.
As well as all the outdoor pleasures, the Treehouse’s kitchen makes it fully self-contained. It really is a luxury getaway all year round.
