The bespoke kitchen area has all you could need to rustle up simple meals, with an induction hob, mini oven, fridge (with a small ice box) and a dishwasher. And the wooden worktops and open shelving keeps things looking superbly rustic. The basics are helpfully provided by the thoughtful owners - ground coffee, tea, rice, porridge etc. There's even some complimentary home baking on arrival. The handmade king size beds are stunning. Dressed in soft linens and plenty of blankets, they both make the cosiest nook or nest. And both bathrooms are sparkling clean with large walk-in power showers and complimentary toiletries - including beautiful handmade Mitcheldean soap.

There’s also a great firepit area that comes complete with a griddle and cooking utensils - perfect for some al-fresco cooking or marshmallow melting. Both the cabins welcome up to two dogs. With their own handmade doggy truckle bed, blanket, dog treats, and water and food bowls, it’s safe to say that man’s best friend is perfectly provided for too! With walkies from the door, you’ll both easily be able to get out and explore the beautiful surroundings. The location is fantastic, with walking and cycle routes through the forest from the door it couldn’t be easier to get out amongst the thick of it. Bring your own bikes or hire them onsite. If you prefer river-life then canoeing and wild swimming are both just a few minutes drive away. With plenty of places to eat out, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s even a micro brewery in the village of Mitcheldean - which has a tap room open on a Friday afternoon & evening.

Or perhaps you'd like to explore the grounds? There are three terraces to choose from and a large landscaped garden opening onto a rolling meadow. There’s also a ha-ha in the lower garden and the terrace next to the kitchen is perfect for alfresco dining, with built-in seating, a table for 10 and a BBQ.

    Padding about in Adder Treehouse is an exercise in meditation, with clutter-free, light and airy spaces pushing your focus to beautiful design, and the incredible wilderness around. There are six spaces in total on the Rewild Things Estate, and Adder Treehouse is most similar to her sisters, Kite Treehouse and Wildcat Treehouse, with space for three to luxuriate in downtime in its carefully curated interior. Indoors, you’ll find the bedroom, where you’ll pair the coffee station with the reading nook, and set a crackling log fire in the burner for a soundtrack. Outdoors, you’ll find the kitchen on the covered deck, for cooking in the fresh air come rain or shine. It’s also where you’ll spy the loungers by the BBQ fire pit for those lazy afternoons in the sun, or late nights toasting marshmallows. And right at the edge of the deck, sits the outdoor bath, where you’ll sink slowly into steaming water, and watch the birds swoop over the rewilded wetlands. If getting out and exploring is on this getaway’s wish list – then you’re in luck. Adder Treehouse is perfectly placed between three major wild spaces, Wye Valley AONB to your west, The Cotswolds to your east, and the Malvern Hills AONB to your North – so whether you’re looking for hikes with incredible views, or paddleboarding down scenic rivers – it’s all in easy reach.
