Mallinson's Woodland Retreat
Escape, unwind and recharge in a stunning West Country woodland. Choose from award-winning luxury treehouses or our hand-crafted woodland yurt, each one a self-contained nest for two with its own facilities (and no kids!).
Sleeps 2 people
The Woodland Retreat is the result of years of evolution and craft, building each of our unique spaces by hand. With your own private deck, en suite flushing loo, tree shower and wood-fired pizza oven, enjoy the perfect back-to-nature break with all the creature comforts.
For over ten years, we’ve been welcoming guests to our magical world in the woods, known as Crafty Camping by many returning guests, from the days when we hosted traditional wood craft courses with camping.
Founder Guy Mallinson was the “wood mentor” on BBC2’s Mastercrafts series (which was filmed here in the woods) and whose traditional craft skills have been used to create our spaces.
The Woodsman’s Treehouse won the RIBA South West award and was named the ‘Small Project of the Year’. It has also featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces and Grand Designs House of the Year.
Wander down the pier-like boardwalk and across a rope bridge into this treetop chalet, where sustainable craftsmanship meets cosy, luxurious interiors.
At its heart lies a central, circular room with a rotating wood burner, around which there’s a king-sized bed, fully equipped kitchen and roll-top bath.
There’s also an entrance hall for coats and muddy boots, plus an en suite, flushing loo.
Outside on the upper deck sits your own sauna and hot tub, while on the lower deck you’ll find an open air tree shower, hammock, wood-fired pizza oven, barbecue and slide down to the woodland floor, plus views through the woods towards the sunset.
For those staying in the Coracle the Yurt, just off your deck you will find your own private piping hot ‘tree shower’, a proper flushing toilet and washbasin with hot and cold (mains/drinking) water.
We provide complimentary ‘Faith In Nature’ tea tree shampoo, conditioner and soap.
