About The Cornish Treehouse

All unique builds have a tale to tell, and the story behind this holiday stay is particularly poignant. We aren’t going to spoil that so you’ll have to come and stay for yourselves and read the owner’s diary! However there are a several stunning design features we cannot help but share as a teaser.

Set within 5 acres of mixed broadleaf woodland, The Cornish Treehouse is the ultimate couples retreat. Get the dog sitter in to watch the pooch, book the grand parents to mind the kids and indulge yourself with a getaway in this magical Cornish stay.

The house has been thoughtfully integrated around a sentimental and proud standing 200 year old copper beech tree within the owners estate. The supporting structure utilising local oak and ash, has been constructed using ground screws to avoid damaging the beech and provides the unique non-uniform element to the foundations.

The design process incorporates super efficient insulation, so for a tree house sat amongst the lush woodland, it is exceptionally well warmed. Heat is provided primarily from the Devon crafted log burning stove in the living room. All logs are provided free of charge and are sourced from the owners woods, stacked lovingly in a custom built metal surround. There is a heated towel rail in the bathroom to warm your robe and towels. Combined, this creates a toasty temperature and cosy ambience.

The treehouse is nestled on the edge of Down’s Wood, to which guests have access to roam. A leisurely half hour stroll, then back for a soak in that tub. Looe is a mere 10 minute drive south, where some quality eateries are available. However there are also two splendid local pubs that come recommended; The Sardine Factory and The Sail Loft, Looe.

Public transport can be a bit of a challenge. It’s possible to take the London to Penzance line and then hop off at Liskeard. Then its a 20 minute taxi onwards. If you are extremely brave, there’s a Liskeard to Looe trainline which is very slow but gets you closer to destination and then a 5 minute taxi ride afterwards.
