Come away to beautiful East Sussex to experience a unique stay in The Buzzardry, a treehouse for 4 people at Marklye. This stunning structure will not disappoint – from the luxurious copper bathtub with exquisite views over woodland grounds to the extravagant beamed ceilings that protrude through the building, this magnificent treehouse offers unparalleled style and luxury. There are full facilities available, including two en-suite bathrooms with showers, a fully equipped kitchen, a barbecue and drinks deck at the front, which are heaped in style. 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 living. With its curved walls, it 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 space as it is elegant, and each window provides a framed, living perspective of the beauty of your leafy nest.
Set amongst gorgeous woodland grounds, the site offers a plethora of serene natural spaces, interlaced with trickling streams and magnificent lakes; a true natural oasis for guests to explore. Amble your way along country paths and arched garden bridges for some delightful walks through the wilderness, or just sit back and relax, soaking up the serenity of birds chirping in the trees, and the occasional hedgehog scuttling through the undergrowth.
There’s plenty to do on the extensive site with several open spaces to wander through, while the on-site tennis court is another great addition for activity enthusiasts. Remember to bring your rackets if you would like to play! It is difficult to imagine a better place for an idyllic escape.
Interior & Facilities
This fantastic 2-bedroom treehouse is generously spaced for you to fully enjoy the lofty environs. Climb up the spiral staircase and across the walkway to find a delightful decked terrace; a perfect place for balmy evenings in the treetops. Double glass doors give you access to the open plan circular living area, with gorgeous views over the woodlands from each angled window. The lounge includes comfortable seating, a TV and a cosy wood-burning stove, which despite the property's mod cons, provides heating with 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 views through large windows and glass doors for the feeling of al fresco dining, a small kitchen complete with oven, hob, microwave, kettle and sink. 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 king-sized 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. Both bedrooms are beautifully appointed with their own en-suite bathrooms.
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.
