Come away to beautiful East Sussex to experience a unique stay in the luxury of The Buzzardry, a treehouse for 4 people at Marklye. This stunning structure will not disappoint - the main feature, a magnificent copper bath tub with unparalleled views over stunning woodland, is as plush as the cosy beds offering a gorgeous night's sleep. There are full facilities available, including two en suite bathrooms with showers, a fully equipped kitchen, a barbecue and drinks deck at the front, and full broadband to the treehouse. No expense has been spared nor detail overlooked. The owners have catered for your every convenience, high above the woodland floor.
A spiral staircase helps this treehouse reach new heights in luxury glamping. The bespoke structure, with its curved walls, sits lightly in its environment, the sumptuous cedar cladding blending seamlessly with the well-rooted aged oaks. From the terrace you have exclusive views over the private lakes which surround the treehouse, as well as bird's eye views of Sussex clear skied starscapes from your own elevated abode. A stay at The Buzzardry lets you escape to the tranquillity of the treetops, allowing you to stay connected to nature as well as the outside world. The stylish interior is as effective a space as it is elegant, and each window provides a framed, living perspective of the beauty of your leafy nest.
Interior & Facilities
This fantastic 2-bedroom treehouse has a generous amount of space for your group to fully enjoy the lofty environs. Climb up the spiral staircase and across the solid walkway towards the spacious deck, a perfect place for balmy evenings in the treetops. Double glass doors give you access to the open plan circular space, which contains all the living space neatly while allowing varying views over the woodlands from each angled window. Through the main door, you'll find a large lounge area which houses comfortable seating, a large TV and a cosy wood-burning stove, which despite the property's mod cons, provides heating the old-fashioned way for this well insulated space, as well as underfloor heating to keep your toes toasty. There is also a dining area for four, with large windows for the feeling of al fresco dining, next to a small kitchenette complete with oven, hob, microwave, kettle and sink. Broadband has been installed in this treehouse (yes, really) so there is a hub and power points dotted around the living space. To the right is a super king sized bedroom which can also be used as a twin room, and is so spacious it comes with wardrobe space and a beautiful morning view of leafy light. The jewel in this cedar crown is the master bedroom, which fans out into its own spherical space, containing a large double bed, wardrobe space, and an opulent copper bath tub. This room is not just metres above the ground, it's miles above other self-catering accommodation - this is treehouse chic.
Situation & Location
Sussex is a popular destination for high end self-catering holidays, and this bucolic corner of East Sussex is no exception. Perched on the edge of High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it's only 12 miles to the newest National Park of the South Downs, meaning that this area is jam packed with hiking trails, biking tracks, fresh air and birdsong - this holiday could be seriously good for your wellbeing.
For literary fans, Bateman's House, the 17th-century home of Rudyard Kipling and his wife Carrie is a mere few miles from The Buzzardry tucked into the woodland of the Weald. The National Trust run house also boasts fantastic walled gardens and a top-notch tea room. If you're after something a little more substantial, then walk through the gardens to the award-winning Horse and Groom, built on Rushlake Green's village green in 1605, which now wows visitors with its chocolate box, flower-framed exterior and its reputation for locally sourced, high quality and downright yummy dinners and Sunday lunches.
You're only 36 minutes' drive from the seaside if you head straight down to popular resort town of Eastbourne and the highest chalk sea cliff in the UK at Beachy Head. And if you can't resist the lure of what's beyond the English Channel, then you're less than 80 minutes from the Channel Tunnel - bon voyage! We do think, however, that you'll want to stay close to your cosy and luxurious nest, with a glass of something gorgeous and a lakeside view that you'll never want to stop staring at.
Please note that although this property welcomes children, we advise parents that the treehouse is high in the air, and advise vigilance when staying here with youngsters.
