You could stay in…

Bensfield Treehouse for your romantic holidays

A treehouse

Staying in a treehouse is a thing of children’s dreams, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t suitable for adults too! Live your own fairytale for a week or weekend as you gaze over the forested area and sink into life off the grid. Our Bensfield Treehouse is a magnificent option, comfortably sleeping two with a fitted kitchen and en-suite bathroom for your pleasure. Take a stroll in the 44 acres of private, unspoilt woodlands in the day, and gaze at the twinkling stars at night from the decked patio area with a bottle of bubbles for the ultimate romantic retreat on your treehouse holidays.

P.S. The Cedar Lodge Treehouse even has it’s very own eco-friendly hot tub!

Romany Rose Vickers, a showman’s wagon for your romantic holidays

A wagon

For something a little more majestic and unique, wagons are a perfect alternative. Two of the wagons we have on offer are a blast from the past, take your pick from a 1920s showman’s wagon, or a 1950s glam caravan and you will be transported back in time. The interior and exterior of these may be a little eccentric, but that is all part of the charm; this will be an experience that neither of you will be forgetting in a hurry! The interiors are perfectly cosy, and the exteriors offer a plethora of beautiful views that will have you out on a romantic exploration of the local area for hours.

Shepherd’s huts are a simple, but wonderful alternative option to stay in for a romantic weekend away.

Take a trip to one of the shepherd’s huts we have on offer (some of which even have their very own private eco-friendly hot tub for an extra special treat), and you will never want to leave.
