Enjoy a treetop mini-moon escape at Cowdray Estate
Cowdray Estate in Midhurst, West Sussex, has recently opened a four new tree houses, in collaboration with Tree House Retreats. Each one offers secluded accommodation in the heart of the 16,500 acre Estate, bringing Scandi-chic interiors to the surrounding woodland. The décor combines natural materials and antique furniture with contemporary artwork and locally-sourced designs. Floor-to-ceiling windows, wraparound balconies, and outdoor bathtubs complete the tree houses, and offer views over Cowdray's world-renowned polo fields, the historical Cowdray ruins and beyond to the South Downs.
The quirky new accommodation sleeps two adults each and contains a spacious open plan living room and kitchen, a double bedroom with a king-size bed, and a bathroom with walk-in shower. Built using sustainably-source timber from the Estate, the tree houses were developed using a fabric first approach, maximising enery efficiency and reducing carbon emissions. The modern art that adorns the walls has been sourced in conjunction with Migrate Art, who collaborate with the world's most significant contemporary artists to raise money for displace and homeless communities across the globe.
What's more, guests will have access to their own personal electric vehicle to transport them between their cars and the woodland location, and bicycles to explore Cowdray and all its offerings. These include classic country pursuits, such as polo, golf and clay pigeon shooting, alongside wellness retreats, art classes, foraging walks through the grounds and stargazing.
The tree houses are available to book online at www.treehouseretreats.com/book. Rates start at £388 per night, with a minimum three-night stay.
