Uniquely shaped treehouse offers a romantic break for 2 (with space for 2 kiddies) in a secluded position of a site neighbouring the Cotswolds village of Chipping Norton. 

Named after an aromatic mint plant, this treehouse offers a spacious stay with eco credentials and a curvy custom design. Inside there is an open plan living space with well equipped kitchenette and dining area. A hanging chair offers the perfect place to sit with a book or simply enjoy the views through the large picture window. The open plan space leads its way through to the king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom with gorgeous free standing bath tub and shower. Underfloor heating keeps the treehouse cosy all year round whilst the wood burning fireplace offers extra heat and that touch of romance. 

Outside you can relax on your private terrace area which can be accessed through the floor to ceiling windows in the main living area. Whilst here be sure to explore the many footpaths through the woodland that lead you to a clearing at the top of the site and offer you gorgeous rural views with the chance to see a multitude of wildlife. 

Locally there is plenty to do with the Cotswolds offering an abundance of villages to visit, whilst Oxford itself offers its prestigious university,  Carfax Tower and a Botanical Garden to explore. 

Parking is approximately 200m from the treehouse. You are welcome to drive to the property to drop off your luggage but then need to return your car to the parking area. Free wifi and good phone signal. 

If you wish to bring children with you then two children under the age of 16, can be accommodated on a double bed that slides out from under the king size bed. No pets.
