Enjoy a peaceful woodland setting in West Dorset close to Lyme Regis. Here you can find this brand new treehouse set in a clearing between mature oak trees in a secluded corner of a bluebell wood. 

Pinwheel treehouse has all the luxuries and unique features you could wish for with a private hot tub, woodburning stove, wood-fired pizza oven plus BBQ and even a swing for those times you simply wish to have a little fun. 

The pinwheel theme is shown in the way the rooms are arranged in a cross shape, shifted off centre to mimic a child's pinwheel windmill. This gives the treehouse a bright and open feel with large windows that face each point of the compass adding to this effect. 

The treehouse is reached via a staircase and on entering you come into the central lounge with its comfortable L-shaped sofa which faces a gorgeous wood burner. There is a tranquil bedroom area with king size bed that can be closed off from the world and the morning sun via a sliding curtain. The modern sleek kitchen houses all you could need to cook up a delicious meal and you can choose whether to dine inside or al fresco. There is also an en-suite with proper flushing loo and a separate shower and dressing room.

Outside on your terrace you can enjoy the stunning views nature provides. Slip into the bubbles of the hot tub with your loved one, or pop a pizza in the oven and let the aroma delight you. Alternatively take the steps back to the ground level and enjoy a siesta in your private hammock. 

The site is located in Holditch, Dorset. It is a private, quiet setting very close to the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, just south of Somerset and not far from Devon too. Locally you can enjoy a trip to Forde Abbey with its medieval monastery and beautiful gardens. Alternatively take a hike up to Pilsden Pen before taking a tour of the Black cow Vodka distillery nearby.

There is a minimum 2-night stay with Monday and Wednesday arrivals and a minimum 3 nights with a Friday arrival. Prices for a 2 night midweek stay is £990, whilst a 3 night weekend stay costs £1485.

Can I bring children or pets here?

This location is designed for adults only. And no pets I'm afraid due to the wildlife in the woods and lifestock in surrounding fields.

Can I stay for just 1 night?

There is a lot involved in the changeover process. We allow stays of 2 nights from a Monday and Wednesday or 3 nights from a Friday - no lesser durations. 2 night weekends cost the same as a 3 night weekend.

Can I park the car closeby?

There is a 3-5 minute walk through the woods to reach your accommodation. Please don't pack more than is necessary.

Can I arrive in the evening?

If is possible to self checkin in the evening and all the pathways are lit so you can easily reach your treehouse.

Can we play music?

This is a quiet place. No music please as this travels in the woods.

Is this a quiet place?

We encourage guests to even switch off the ring of their phones to create a peaceful environment.You may hear some local farming activities. Very occasionally hunting hounds pass through the woods.
