On The Water
Netherby Treehouse, Cumbria
The secluded Netherby Treehouse commands amazing views across the river with fresh country air and the trickling music from the Border Esk river makes this the perfect escape for newlyweds.
Gosling Lodge, Devon
Sneak away to Gosling Lodge and enjoy the privacy with the peaceful pond views. Handcrafted by a local carpenter, Gosling Lodge is an open space of simple comfort with splashes of blues and green echoing the water outside, where the eponymous birds are often seen in season.
By the Coast
The Black Shed, Highland
Don’t be put off by the title, as this may be a shed but it is most definitely not your common or bottom-of-the-garden variety. It sits on the side of a remote hill, and outside, free-range chickens and Hebridean sheep strut their stuff under a vast sky with Loch Dunvegan shimmering below and Macleod’s Table rising to the south.
Carswell Beach Hut, Devon
Escape into a forgotten cove, listen to the waves from the wood fired hot tub and watch the sun on the waters of the South Devon coast. A romantic yet affordable destination for newlyweds.
In The Trees
Old Mill Treehouse, Bath & N.E. Somerset
Several months of hard work resulted in a smartly designed cabin on stilts with a well-finished interior, clean and light, with lashings of luxury including a wall-mounted TV. On your arrival at the Old Mill a short walk over a stream and down a winding path will lead you to your bedroom with a difference.
Your adventure at Pickwell begins the moment you arrive. You take the wheelbarrow, and the lantern if you need it, and trundle your things through the woods to the steps up to your incredible treehouse home. Inside you’ll find a space of cool, natural comfort, from the king-sized bed where you can lie back and watch the ocean, to the chunky leather sofa by the wood-burner.
Take Your Four-Legged Friend
Gold Rush Cabin, Gloucestershire
Gold Rush Cabin was inspired by the frontier cabins of the American west, but the rough timber walls of this creative octagonal structure hide just a little more comfort than the average prospector would have known.
Draw the thick velvet curtains, light the wood-burner and Timberdoodle becomes a cosy nest with the fire’s glow dancing on the walls. Outside you’ll find the covered cooking area with a full oven, but there’s a gas BBQ too for more al fresco meal
A 15-minute drive takes you to Westonbirt Arboretum, where the array of trees and plants offer a glorious backdrop regardless of the time of year
Around 45-minutes drive is The Cotswolds Water Park, which its beach, Inflatable Obstacle Course, Water skiing, and boating
Lichen Cabin, Monmouthshire
One of the joys of the cabin is that you do not need to get back in your car once you are here. The cabin backs onto woodland where there are miles of trails for both hiking and mountain biking or hire a bike in the Forest of Dean.The River Wye is just five minutes walk and renowned as being one of the best canoeing rivers in the UK. For canoe hire travel up to Monmouth or Symonds Yat
Relax and Enjoy
St Agnes, Cornwall
Through the old church gate and down a private path, St Agnes sits in her own wild meadow, making the space feel completely yours. Fresh flowers and a bottle of wine welcome you warmly to this Scandinavian inspired tin tabernacle, which has a fully equipped bathroom and kitchen.
The Lodge at the Old Mill, Bath & N.E. Somerset
Have the comforts of home in this charming and cosy lodge in the trees. The front of the lodge is made almost entirely of glass, so you can observe the squirrels running along the balcony and woodpeckers in the trees above as you lay on the floating bed that hangs down from the ceiling.
