  • Treetops Treehouse

    • 2 nights min stay

    The steps up to Treetops Treehouse lift you clear into the canopy and you’re suddenly alone with the peaceful breeze through the leaves, the occasional skittering squirrel and only the good kind of twitter. The temptation is to fire up the wood-burner, settle on the sofa and crack into the local welcome cider, but the rest of the treehouse is worth exploring. Upstairs you’ll find the king-size bed and in another room downstairs the huge copper bath, where you can lie back and soak up the quiet as the stress just drains away. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and there’s a barbecue outside on the deck, but if you fancy a treat then book in at the superb restaurant of The Fox & Hounds and head across the grounds for dinner. When you come back, sink into the bean bags in the secret cubby hole on the deck and watch the sun set on the fishing lake and the trees of Heywood Forest as the local train chugs past beneath you. Treetops Treehouse is set in the North Devon Biosphere Reserve, with the River Taw just below. If you want to leave the car behind, Eggesford train station is just a 5 minute walk away, and the Tarka Line runs to Barnstaple in one direction and Exeter in the other. As well as fishing on the lake and river, there’s the Tarka Trail that’ll take you on foot or by bike through charming villages and beautiful countryside via the odd homely pub. You can hit the coast for surfing, coasteering and a dip in the sea, or just spend the whole time lounging in the treehouse, sipping champagne and looking out over the pond.

You’re also able to book a masseuse to visit, for an incredibly relaxing afternoon! An eight-minute walk along a tree-lined path down through the park takes you into Okehampton, known as the "Gateway to Dartmoor". It has excellent farm shops, pubs, restaurants, a castle, the Museum of Dartmoor Life and a cinema. The very best local walks are on your doorstep, from country lanes to woodland, meadows and riverside rambles. Bring your own bikes to journey along the impressive Granite Way cycle path two minutes away, which is also perfect for jogging. Go horse riding on the moor or visit Roadford Lake, 20 minutes away, popular for water sports, fishing, paddle boarding and kayaking, as well as sailing. The train station, just three minutes away, gives you access to the whole of Devon, catch a bus to Bude and all north and south cost beaches. Garden lovers can make a bee line for RHS Rosemoor or the Eden Project, or just stay put and enjoy the ancient gardens that surround you in Nutshell.
