The Hudnalls Hideout treehouse is off the beaten track so it takes a little more effort to get here but your effort will be rewarded, we promise.
The Hudnalls Hideout has a narrow access track from a single track country lane to the car parking area.
The narrowest point is 2.3 meters wide. Please drive slowly and carefully on the track (maximum speed 5mph) and be considerate of neighbouring properties on your arrival and departure from the site.
Be mindful that walkers with dogs and wild animals, specifically wild deer, also use the
Please note the access track is unsuitable for low slung sports cars or very large 4×4 / vans or campervans.
We will ask you at the time of booking for the make and model of vehicle you intend to arrive in and notify you if we have any concerns regarding access.
The car parking area is level and gravelled..
There is a short mostly downhill walk (150m) with a wheelbarrow across the wild flower meadow and a woodland track to get to the treehouse.
Please note there is no pathway lighting to the treehouse from the car parking area. A rechargeable lantern(s) are provided for your convenience and we encourage guests to arrive before dark for this reason.
The treehouse is self-check-in but we can assist with taking luggage to the treehouse – just let us know before your arrival date.
ACCESS TO THE TREEHOUSE
The treehouse is approached via a hard-stoned woodland pathway leading to the entrance ramp – a moderately sloping wooden ramped walkway, to the front entrance door. There is a raised door threshold. This doorway goes straight into the kitchen/dining area.
The ground floor is open-plan on the same level with wood flooring. It contains a small kitchen area with sink, open shelves, storage cupboards, fridge, two ring induction hob, toaster oven, and dishwasher (there is no main oven) and dining area with a table and two chairs.
The lounge area has a 2 seater sofa, arm chair, side tables, and a suspended bioethanol fireplace. The lounge has large 3.2m wide bi-fold doors out onto the elevated deck area. The doors have a raised door runner threshold.
On the ground floor, there is also a wet room with a double size walk-in rainfall shower, vanity unit with sink and flushing WC.
An electric boiler provides instant hot water and electricity is provided to various lights and sockets. Two sockets have USB chargers.
The ground floor has underfloor heating throughout.
There is no TV or Wi-Fi. Good 4G phone coverage on most networks.
The bedroom is located on a mezzanine floor above the lounge reached via a curved handmade staircase with handrails. The kingsize bed (2mx1.5m) is a loft-style platform with a medium firm spring and memory foam luxury mattress. This bedroom area has a side velux window and a floor to ceiling triangular window looking out onto the woodland. People with severe vertigo may not find this bedroom suitable. There is a small landing area with a vanity table and mirror and space for luggage.
From the large raised deck area, there is a narrow spiral staircase with a handrail down to ground level, to access the fire pit and BBQ area. There is a woodchip path with small steps to the fire pit area. The fire pit has natural tree stump seats and a small cable drum table with a natural fire pit circle.
The treehouse is located in a private 2 acre woodland. Guests have exclusive access to this area but we strongly advise that you stick to the pathways provided and for your safety wear appropriate footwear suitable for grass and woodland tracks that can be wet and muddy at all times of the year. The wild flower meadow is native grassland and contains many rare local flowers and grasses. It is also home to bees and butterflies. Grass tracks are mown in the meadow as natural walkways, please try to walk on these to conserve the wild flower meadow habitat. These grass pathways can be uneven and slippery.
