Lofty, North Wales.
Lofty is one of six treehouses available to our guests on this site. Please be aware that pressing “Book” reserves one of these six properties, and means that you will be allocated one of these equally beautiful treehouses based on availability and suitability. This is so that we can make sure that your family has a stay that’s out of this world!
High above the treetops, looking down on leaf and stream, you'll find a hidden hideaway for your happy hang-out holiday - Lofty the treehouse. This is the adult realisation of your childhood dreams. These treehouses are the real deal, complete with spiral log staircases, rope bridges and hammocks in the trees, as well as incredibly comfortable interiors and warming wood-burning stoves. The interiors are elegantly simplistic, with decor being replaced with intricate grains of wood, sound systems replaced with birdsong, and televisions replaced with stunning treetop sunsets. This is your opportunity to reset yourself with a digital detox in this splendid off-grid location. With so much to see and do in this ancient Welsh kingdom, you certainly won't miss your technological ties.
A short walk from Lofty, high in the hills with spectacular views over the slopes of Powys is Cemmaes wind farm, consisting of 18 majestic wind turbines, indicative of the innovative eco technology being implemented in this region. Nearby is the well-known Centre for Alternative Technology, an education centre in Machynlleth which explores and implements solutions for green living.
You'll not only be staying in a sustainable sanctuary during your time at the treehouse, but you'll also be staying in an area that works hard to live lightly on this lovely land.
Interior & Facilities
Each one of these chic tree shelters sleep four – two adults on a hand built wooden double bed, and two children in built in bunk beds. There is an optional day bed for a third child available. All beds have views over the woodland from large windows, allowing for star gazing and bird spotting well into the night. The living space is big enough for a family stay, and cosy enough for a couple, with cooking and washing up facilities, comfortable seating and dining areas, and a central wood-burning stove providing a sepia glow over this simple existence. The shower can be found under the structure, and the compost toilet is on its own platform nearby. Rope bridges, spiral staircases, tree hammocks and streams also add to the experience, allowing the kids and the big kids an amazing, serene experience between the branches.
