I booked 3 nights for my wife's birthday and honestly it was just perfect. The setting is so peaceful and we really lucked out with the weather. Sitting watching the sunrise with a morning coffee was just bliss! Communication was brilliant from the start, we had an amazing time and my wife loved it. Would highly recommend.

This is a great place - very peaceful. Bring your wellies if you want to explore around the site. Would really recommend this lovely place.

Absolutely wonderful stay at Tawny Owl Treehouse.

Spotless on arrival, a lovely gf welcome pack, and full of personal touches making it feel like home very quickly. The information provided was a lovely read and great to know how the tree house came about.

Thoroughly enjoyed the outside bath and shower, and the bed was so comfortable. The kitchen had everything required and more, and the BBQ was a great addition to enjoy outside cooking with the stunning views.

Kayaking nearby at Ullswater added to the fun, alongside lovely river walks locally. A relaxing and wonderful stay. The weather was perfect, which made our stay more special. A hidden gem of a place.

Welcoming and unique space to stay. Very cosy and relaxing, and the bath adds a lot to the experience. Perfect space if you want to cut off from society for a bit, you are never disturbed, however all contact numbers in case of emergency are left available. Many things in the property have been re-purposed making it very sustainable! Very well recommended.

We had the best time at Tawny Owl Treehouse, so relaxing and peaceful. It was great not having access to the Internet as it made us put our phones down and enjoy the peace and quiet! We saw 2 deer when we were there which was the highlight of our stay. The treehouse itself is so quirky and we loved reading up about the different features of it and where they had come from. There were so many unique touches about the place that really made our stay and we were so pleased with the cleanliness too, it's not easy in the middle of a wooded area. Really beautiful place to stay and we will definitely be back.

Nice little private hideaway, up in the canopy. Near Carlisle, a 30/ 40minute drive from the Lake District.

Lovely and cosey, well equipped, nice outdoor area, with shower and bath and ash wood four poster bed.

Lovely gift of biscuits, wine and milk.

Thanks for our holiday weekend

Lovely property, very peaceful! The other treehouse was a little closer than expected but still private.

We would highly recommend this treehouse. We absolutely loved it for a relaxing weekend away, beautiful setting and very peaceful, lovely walks near by and some great pubs. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the treehouse as there was plenty to see and it had everything we needed

Wonderful location and querky decor. Very quiet only natural sounds to be heard.

Enjoyed a lovely couple of days in this beautiful, cosy and comfortable treehouse. Peaceful location and left feeling totally relaxed and refreshed.

Hidden gem! Such a wonderful peaceful place away from reality. The outdoor facilities were brilliant. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you :)

Amazing place to stay! The place is actually bigger than the photos let on and was super warm and cosy. We went in Feb and the heater they have there is perfect! You must try the outside shower, it was lovely and warm and it's a very peaceful experience. The place was beautifully presented and very eco (in the info pamphlet that talk you through what everything is made of- very interesting!) They even made us a special hamper of vegan and nut free food and put up birthday banners which was a lovely touch! Would go back again :)

Lovely property for our weekend away. So nice to get away from the hustle and spend some time nestled in this beautiful location.
