Holiday Rental House
Perched amongst the canopy of the majestic Shotover Country Park, Cedar Hollow Treehouse and Yurt are hidden in the woodlands and yet a 10 minute cycle to the city of Oxford. While away your days in the magical natural tapestry, wandering through the ancient forests and mysterious, hidden valleys, watching beautiful woodland creatures darting about or exploring Oxford's cobbled streets and punting in the Cherwell. Luxury features are paired with whimsical touches to create a memorable hideout for drama and romance. Traverse the swinging rope bridge and climb amongst the treetops, heading down the slide and gathering around the old-worldly firepit. Play tennis in the mornings and light the BBQ at noon, dining alfresco in the pavilion and cooling off in the indoor pool.

While away your days in the magical natural tapestry, wandering through the ancient forests and mysterious, hidden valleys, watching beautiful woodland creatures darting about or exploring Oxford's cobbled streets and punting in the Cherwell. Luxury features are paired with whimsical touches to create a memorable hideout for drama and romance. Traverse the swinging rope bridge and climb amongst the treetops, heading down the slide and gathering around the old-worldly firepit. Play tennis in the mornings and light the BBQ at noon, dining alfresco in the pavilion and cooling off in the indoor pool. The grand wooden treehouse has a finish befitting of its backdrop and blends the simplicity of nature with its impressive architecture. There are gorgeous honey-coloured timbers and elegant arched windows, formed into chapel-esque peaks and iconic castle turrets. Inside, the treehouse has a warm, studio design boasting soaring vaulted ceilings and plenty of natural light. Handcrafted woodwork hides state-of-the-art mod-cons, while vast open spaces let the views takeover. With CS Lewis’ house as your nearest neighbour, subtle hints of Narnia are even dotted across the living area. Look out for the lifelike wildlife sculptures and the vibrant patchwork quilts, along with the spellbinding wardrobe with its fanciful glint. Cook in the bespoke handmade kitchen on its designer appliances or sit on the plush window benches and gaze across the woodlands. Pad across the heated wooden floorboards to the romantic bedroom nook, dressed with a sumptuous king-size bed and mythical look. Up the steep wooden staircase is a cosy mezzanine hub with two floor mattresses that the kids will love. Two foldout single beds can also be set up in the main area of the treehouse if needed, while a ground floor bathroom completes the sophisticated interior. The Mongolian Yurt is hidden away amongst the nettle furnished with antiques and with all modern conveniences including underfloor heating making it a snug and romantic hideaway even in winter. Sleeping a further 6, 12 can stay on site in total. Step out into Shotover Park to head off in search of adventure, exploring its 117 hectares of beguiling country landscapes. Horse ride through the forest or forage in the woodland. You can also have access to your own private zip wire, after heading through the Narnia wardrobe, meaning you can fly through the trees whilst watching out for Aslan. Get a shot of culture amid the spires of nearby Oxford, admiring its prestigious collegiate and medieval history. Bask in its architectural masterpieces and literary greats, before disappearing into the woods to write your own fairy-tale.More

This was without a doubt the most relaxing, incredible holiday I've ever had! We had the option when booking to choose either the treehouse or the yurt. Both are absolutely stunning, but we decided to go with the yurt. As stunning as it looks in...More
