The Woodsman's Treehouse


Set high up in the branches of a veteran Oak Tree in the enchanted Dorset woodland, The Woodsman's Treehouse is a truly exclusive and unique experience. A blend of stylish, yet sustainable craftsmanship and lavish interiors with a playful touch; include your very own sauna and hot tub on the upper deck, a rotating Woodburner, an open-air tree shower and a stainless steel slide. With a grand-pier like a boardwalk leading to your very own exclusive space, kitted out with a king-sized bed, a double-ended copper bath, and a revolving fireplace that can be pointed toward the bed, sofa, or kitchen. An especially impressive feature is the window in the floor that looks down to the stream below. The thick insulated walls feature picture windows with uninterrupted vistas through the tree canopy across the woodland. and there is a ceiling window above the bed that looks up at the spectacular oak overhead. Nothing has been forgotten when it comes to the practicalities; the treehouse has a proper indoor flushing loo and a space in the entrance hall for your coats and muddy boots.

What makes a stay at The Woodsman's Treehouse unique?

The Woodsman's Treehouse is all about being amongst the trees, experiencing and admiring them, while doing nothing to damage them. It is bursting with wood craftsmanship, along with a variety of other materials that have been either found or created in the woods. The Treehouse has been constructed on long stilts between the branches of three oak trees. It is a substantial structure that was built so that the trees are not affected in any way. The trees are not stressed by imposing heavy loads or fixing bolts to them, which allows the rainwater to flow down through the stems and wildlife, which preserves the oak tree's sensitive ecosystem.

What is there to see and do at The Woodsman's Treehouse?

The Treehouse is totally self-contained, including the kitchen and all of the outdoor pleasures. There is a wood-fired pizza oven and BBQ on the outside deck, as well as one of the now-famous outdoor showers, fitted with endless hot water. A spiral staircase leads from this level up to the completely private roof/spa deck with a hot tub and sauna. It is a rather unique experience to lay back and relax between the branches, gazing at the sunset through the woods. The kitchen of the Treehouse is completely self-contained, as are all outdoor pleasures. There is a small honesty shop onsite with many varieties of local cider, and locally-made charcoal for your barbecue as well as the pizza dough. It really is a luxury getaway all year round.

Address: Woodland Workshop, Holditch, Lyme Regis, West Dorset, Lyme RegisTA20 4NL, United Kingdom

Mallinson’s Woodland Retreat is in a remote rural location with lots of tiny lanes and many ways to get well and truly lost! It is strongly recommended to use google maps to find your way. The postcode covers a large area, therefore not all sat nav systems will take you directly to the car park. Satnav frequently directs the postcode to Manor Farm in the middle of the tiny hamlet of Holditch. If this happens follow the lane uphill from the grass triangle outside Manor Farm continuing around the sharp left-hand bend by 3 cottages (not straight on to the village hall) the car park is the 1st entrance on the left after a few hundred yards - opposite Higher Holditch Farm. If you find yourself at or Near Lower Holditch then head uphill to Holditch and then carry on to Higher Holditch.
