Delightful and quirky, you have no choice but to relax The outside bath and shower were fab. Lovely surprise when we opened fridge as the was milk and a bottle of wine. Phone reception is a little hit and miss so prepare for no signal and hope for best. Will need wellies or good walking boots as was extremely muddy when we stayed (March) around the surrounding wooded area. Lovely little stream running through Will need car/bike if you don’t like walking as it is about 4/5 miles from nearest store and pubs. Keswick is about 15 miles away and full of amazing eateries including a fab Vegan restaurant ...

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. ...

We're over the moon to hear how special your wife's birthday celebration was. It sounds absolutely idyllic! Hope to see you again soon. Julie, Customer Support

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....

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

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