This treehouse was lovely, high spec, very comfortable, warm, good amenities with some coffee pods for coffeemaker, tea bags. hot chocolate sachets. Nice bathroom, lovely mezzanine with comfortable double bed. Cosy but not tiny and good little kitchen. Nice swinging seat beneath. However we were disappointed when we opened the sofa bed to find that it wasn't at all a double, much more of a single, so one of our family had to sleep on cushions on the floor. This is not what I expected 1. from the description and 2. from the price. It was a shame as the treehouse is lovely but it left a sour taste in our mouths as we felt it was not a fair description to say that the treehouse sleeps 4. Also, if you come from London or a big noisy city, you might find it tranquil, but actually it is rather close to a busy A road and you hear quite a lot of traffic noise outside. We live next to a ring road of similar size at home so we're used to it, but it certainly wasn't blissfully quiet.
Wow what a hidden gem of a place!
I can't find one negative thing to say, Helen was wonderful during email contact, we bumped into her husband who took the time to tell a little about the area and the treehouse, lodge, lake etc...
We planned to visit the area around as we had heard lots about the beautiful wals but ended up staying in the treehouse the whole weekend. It's not very often anyone gets to spend so much time completely alone to enjoy the peace and quiet and be entertained by the birds, squirrels etc...
The owners have really thought of everything throughout the treehouse and outside area, my partner forgot his wellies (we went on a wet weekend) and there was even a spare pair of hunter ones in the wellie store.
Anyone wanting a romantic weekend getaway, we cannot recommend Trunkquility treehouse enough! But we are also hoping to go back in the summer with friends and family so we can enjoy the outside area more.
Thanks again ☺️
I visited this last time in 2004.....as a fishing holiday with free accommodation (treetops as it was affectionately known), I thought it would be a nice break.
I'd always thought of returning, and after hearing of its, renaming, updating and vast improvement, from a shed in the trees to what you see now, and through its many reviews, I decided to book a stay.
Simply an outstanding place that offers privacy and seclusion, and what seemed to be instant contact with local nature, if that's your thing.
After my short stay, I will be looking at a return later in the year.
The surrounding area, the City and the County was a plus side to my visit.
The owners were very easy to deal with and go out of their way to make you feel at home!
I booked this as a Christmas present for my son and his partner...they said it was amazing. The setting and facilities were exceptional, the squirrels, different species of birds, which they couldn't wait to look up when they came home and breakfast with pheasants running around was just out of this world. Thus this experience they will never forget...looks like we will all be booking to go...a truly magical tranquil treehouse and a credit to the owners..well done and thank you x
We came to trunkquility for a post Christmas retreat and got just that, away from hustle and bustle and spending time up in the trees with birds, squirrels, mice and rabbits was just what we needed. The treehouse is very impressive and very well thought out, we hope to be back when the weathers warmer!
