We stayed here for two nights in May. The treehouse is a nice place to stay and fairly easy to find. The site is secure and the place was clean (on the inside) and hosts were helpful. There are a number of good pubs locally and tourist attractions. Closest pub was about 20 minute walk from the site (5 min drive).
In general terms the place is a unique and very different place to stay. It looks like it has been well used for holiday let’s as in places it’s starting to look a bit tired and could do with updating / refurbishment, especially when charging c.£200 per night. Overall it has a bit of a “DIY” rather than premium feel. That said there is a well equipped kitchen and TV available.
On our stay we noticed the drains smelt of eggs a lot, the outside lights didn’t work and there was no hot water in the kitchen. While these didn’t cause much of an issue for us, more attention to detail would be good.
The bedroom is accessed via a spiral staircase which is VERY small. Although this won’t be a problem for everyone, anyone of a larger body or any mobility issues will struggle to get upstairs. The banister is also very wobbly! We found the outside space to be quite dirty and had to wash down the table and chairs before we could use them.
Parking for one or two cars is fine, although this is essentially a one bedroom apartment and wouldn’t really be suitable for two couples. Two adults and two children would be absolutely fine. Head space in the bedroom mezzanine floor is very limited as the room angles downwards.
Overall we had a good time, and slept well. Some updating of the apartment itself and a cleaner outside space would make this a higher scoring review. There are other places for the same price which are more premium and modern feeling.
We are just back from a amazing weekend at the tree house. I bought it for my husband 60th birthday treat and what a treat it was . We toured the grounds before we went into the house which was lovely , was hoping to see the otter . On entering the house we were surprised at how much room there was, loved the bedroom up the spiral staircase. Bathroom was nice with the glass panel window in the shower so you can look out whiles showering. Well equipped kitchen with so much cleaning items under the sink, plenty of tea and coffee . Loved the wildlife, so many birds . Saw so many robins i lost count , woodpeckers and of course squirrels and they are so funny trying to get the nuts out of the feeders. There is a container outside with fat balls and nuts for you to feed them too , they are well fed birds . We walked about a mile to the pub down the road each night for an early drink , which if you what’d it done nice food . What a surprise the last Morning to wake up to snow , bit worried we wouldn’t get of the land .Will definitely recommend to friends and hopefully came back .
So me and my partner stayed at Trunkquility Tree House for one night end of February and I have to say, what an amazing place. The treehouse was cosy, comfy, tidy and modern. Booking with Helen was easy and straight forward. We will definitely be returning at some point for sure and hopefully longer than just one night. For anyone looking for a tree house stay, this is the place to be. Thanks again to Helen for our relaxing stay.
Me and my fiancée stayed at this beautiful treehouse between 01/03 and 05/03. Although the drive down in the masses of snow and the ice filled roads was terrifying it certainly became worth it when we arrived and saw where we’d be staying, it was stunning. We were snowed in for the majority of the weekend but what a place to be stuck, the wildlife and scenery here are amazing and the amenities in the treehouse itself were fantastic. As it was a little colder than most weekends there were a couple of issues with the water but the owners Helen and John were quick to offer all the support and assistance necessary which made the whole experience even better. This couple are all about the people and helping wherever possible so anybody considering staying here, you will be in great hands. I found out during our stay that Helen and John provide this treehouse to charities every year such as help for heroes and make a wish foundation which again shows the type of people they are and I feel this needs to be recognised. Now we have experienced this place in the snow we are now curious to see what it will be like in the summer and are already planning our return...
This was a great way to spend my birthday and I can’t recommend this place highly enough!
Thanks Helen and John

A christmas prsent that has made wonderful memories forever......Peaceful, relaxing with an abundance of wildlife, the perfect place to unwind. Helen and family, you have done yourselves pround this place is a credit to you all....AMAZING xx
I brought my boyfriend here as a surprise for his 21st birthday.
We stayed for 2 nights and it was great to have some time away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives.
one day we just stayed indoors the entire time to just soak in the atmosphere of the place, we noticed so many squirrels running around and causing mischief which was a delight!
There was a little bit of a funny smell in the bathroom but nothing that affected our stay negatively.
This place is a dream ... if you like peace, tranquility and your own space away from the hustle and bustle of everyday madness.... here’s the place to come .
My partner and I booked the tree house last summer, having looked for hours at different places to rent I was just about to give up my search when I see Trunkquility... and the added bonus was a private lake for my partner to fish .
We dealt with Helen direct who is lovely and answered any questions we had.
We have just returned from a few days at the tree house again over Xmas and already booked two more trips for 2018 , as soon as we come away we just wanted to go back again. It’s magical so peaceful and full of wildlife, whether it’s fishing you like or just sitting on the balcony watching the wildlife it’s suits anybody wanting their own time and space away .
My partner loves to fish there and even done some fishing over Christmas and caught some big fish . He says it’s great for fishing, big catches and regular bites . Chubb and carp being his main catch .
This place is amazing and I just can’t recommend it enough.
Thanks Helen and John for letting us share your wonderful hideaway and another thanks for just making our bookings run so smoothly and making us feel so welcome there .
