‘Amazing experience, booked for Trevor as his birthday weekend surprise. So tranquil up in the trees, I never thought I would sleep in a tree but now I have.
Thank you for a lovely relaxing weekend you will definitely see us again.’
Jackie & Trevor, November 2016

‘The perfect escape from London life. The Nest is everything we’d imagined & more. A unique, fun & isolated experience like nothing we’ve experienced before.
Our host was very welcoming, polite & helpful. We can’t believe your family built it. It is amazing! The perfect romantic break away.’
Emily & Fi, November 2016

‘Fantastic and so different from anything we have done before. It is lovely and peaceful with just the wildlife for company. It had everything you could want to make for a comfortable stay. Our host made us feel very welcome and was very polite and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend this to friends and family. Great concept love it!’
Donna & Andy, November 2016

‘Loved it! Had smiles on our faces all weekend. One of those breaks we will never forget. Thanks guys.’
‘Recommend the ‘Pig Inn’ at Gittisham for a special meal, set in a big old country house.’
Roy & Gill, aka Tarzan & Jane! November 2016

‘The perfect place for escapism with every little detail considered. We were apprehensive that the place may not be warm in October, but the log burner soon puts your mind at rest! The place is so incredibly cosy. We’ve enjoyed staying here from the moment we arrived.
Thank you for designing such a wonderful place.’
Karen & Mark, October 2016

‘We stayed at ‘The Nest’ as a treat to celebrate my husband’s birthday. It was great fun staying in a treehouse and felt like a mini adventure each time we walked up to it from along the little gravel path. ‘The Nest’ was lovely and cosy with all the home comforts we hoped for. We’ll be recommending it to our friends.’
David & Samantha, October 2016

‘We arrived to a warm friendly welcome. Had a lovely, relaxing, peaceful time in the tree house and hope to return soon, XX’
Karen & Steve, October 2016

‘This is our second visit to ‘The Nest’. In the last two years since our last visit we have had a baby and were married five days ago. The Nest was just what we needed to relax after all the stress and planning of our beautiful wedding. We just wish we had booked for longer!
As before we feel so relaxed and are still just as impressed with the beautiful crafted treehouse. Just perfect! Thank you again and I am sure we will be back soon. XX’
Michelle & Mark, October 2016

‘We’ve had a wonderful time in this secluded hide away; a peaceful place to escape from the hustle and bustle. The setting was beautiful. We even survived a thunderstorm! Great fun being in a tree. Many thanks’
Becca & Simon, September 2016

‘What a fantastic little bolt-hole from the hustle & bustle of busy life. A truly memorable few days in the peace & tranquillity of the trees & countryside. We fell asleep to the sound of owls and were woken to the sound of birds in the morning. We were so lucky to have seen five deer in the local fields. Thank you so much for allowing us to share this special place.’
Jan & Jackie, September 2016

‘Thank you so much for sharing your magical tree house, we’ve had a truly special and memorable holiday here – we had Champagne at sunset on the balcony amongst the trees when Raam proposed! So we arrived as ‘boyfriend’ and ‘girlfriend’ , and leave as fiancés, ready to take the next step in our journey together – what an incredible place to start that! Thanks again!’
Raam & Hannah, September 2016

‘I thought I was being original but like several others I brought my partner for his 60th birthday in a tree. We both loved it here – thank you.’
‘Thank you Jenny for bring me to this amazing tree house. I have always wanted to stay in a tree house. Absolutely brilliant!!’
Jenny & Andy, September 2016

‘I was 60 in a tree! My lovely wife whisked me away for a surprise few days in Devon and I woke up on my 60th Birthday in a tree house! Not many people have done that! What a fantastic experience. Love the tree house, so relaxing & peaceful, I’ll never forget it. Best wishes, Roy.’
‘I’ve only kept 2 things secret from Roy – this and his 50th birthday party! This was more fun – selfish, and worth his silenced disbelief when he saw it! We loved our “time out here”. Just wished we could stay. Jude X’
Roy & Jude, September 2016

‘What a beautiful place for my boyfriend to ask me to marry him… I said yes!!! Had a lovely stay in this treehouse, thank you!! We don’t want to go home!!’
Anna & Mark, September 2016

‘Thank you for sharing you little slice of peaceful freedom, it has made for a memorable 30th Birthday! We visited the Beer caves and the small village of Beer, which is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for everything we’re back off to the madness! Back Soon!’
Wayne & Gemma, August 2016

‘Absolutely Perfect! We wanted somewhere to get away from it all for our ‘mini-moon’ and that’s precisely what we got! It is so tranquil here, and the construction of ‘The Nest’ is so beautiful. It is actually a shame it has been so warm whilst we’ve been, as we would have loved to use the log burner! We will definitely be recommending ‘The Nest’ to our family and friends, and would love to come back again!’
Jen & Phil, August 2016

‘A paradise lost. Absolutely idyllic place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Did circular walk from Otterton & coastal walk from Beer to Branscombe & back – both beautiful views of interesting places. Ate at the Holt (fabulous food, family run, relaxed & fun atmosphere) & the Pig (more expensive but again lovely food & relaxed dining in comfortable hotel atmosphere). Loved every minute of our stay but best of all was the unique and perfect accommodation. Well done for creating it – we will be back.’
Sally & Paul, August 2016

‘Hi, we are off, had a great time. Thank you. We will hopefully see you again soon!’

Luci & Mike, August 2016

‘This place is magical and has exceeded all expectations. Booked this as a birthday gift for Jon and we’ve had a truly special stay. Your little ‘Nest’ has been made with love; quirky, tranquil & loved all the little finishing touches, it’s been a real treat and retreat. Coming from the city, it’s been lovely to see a star-filled sky & we’ve appreciated the quiet and beautiful surroundings. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope the ‘Nest’ continues to bring joy to all who visit.’
Jon & Ruth, August 2016

‘Thank you for creating such a fantastic treehouse! We loved our stay and will visit again soon!’
Robyn & Jim, August 2016

‘A little Hobbit House in the trees. Unique, quirky, magical. Thank you.’
Hazel, July 2016

 ‘A little piece of heaven at the farm,
  Tranquil, relaxing and ever so calm,
   Away from the rat race,
    At a much slower pace,  
     Peaceful and still,
      A gentle walk up a hill,
      Time to spend together, 
       Regardless of the weather,
       The soft sound of the wind in the trees,
        The nothingness but the breeze,
         A home in the tree is the life for me,
          A home in the Nest is the life I love best.
                                 Thank you  X’
Gary & Sonya, July 2016

Annie & Nigel, July 2016

‘Thank you for a quiet and peaceful couple of nights in ‘The Nest’ to start our ‘mini-moon’! It has been finished to a very high standard, and is very warm and welcoming. Such a beautiful place with lots to see nearby.’
Becki & Ross, June 2016

‘We’ve had a peaceful and relaxing first two days of our ‘mini-moon’! It was exactly what we needed and great to be away from the hustle and bustle of normal life. We loved the quirkiness and attention to detail and ‘The Nest’ is something you are clearly proud of…… and so you should be!’
Maz & Rachel, June 2016

‘Well we were looking for somewhere memorable to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we found it! ‘The Nest’ was a perfect, truly magical home for the weekend, it is even more special because there is only one, this adds to the experience.
Lisa & Tony, June 2016

‘What a dream to stay in a treehouse! Fantastic and relaxing location, many wonderful places are easy to reach, if you want to leave. The birds singing make this place feel like a tropical paradise, so peaceful.
The craftsmanship deserves respect and recognition, we will certainly recommend it to friends and family. Many thanks.’
Jack & Rosie, June 2016

‘What an amazing weekend we’ve had. We wanted to get away for some much needed peace and quiet and that’s exactly what we got. Beautiful place, beautiful surrounds, couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you! X’
Kate & Steve, June 2016

‘Wow – ‘The Nest’ is even better in real life! We were so looking forward to getting away for a few days and this has been a magical and homely place to unwind. We really enjoyed the walk to Honiton and it was so great to get back here and have the pleasure of staying a second night. Will be passing our great experience on! Thank you!’

Thanks very much!’
Jenny & Samuel, May/June 2016

‘Thank you for a wonderful stay at ‘The Nest’. We have absolutely loved living in a tree surrounded by bird song and nature! We were lucky enough to see a deer in the surrounding forest. We have had such a lovely time relaxing and adventuring and exploring the area. We particularly enjoyed a walk along the headland to Budleigh Salterton from Ladram Bay!
Thanks again we would not hesitate to recommend this hidden gem.’
James & Gemma, May 2016

‘Well when we were thinking about where to stay, Don said he fancied staying in a Treehouse, so some internet trawling and I found ‘The Nest’ – I’m so glad I did! What a truly beautiful retreat with so much attention to detail & some ingenious ideas. The weather’s been amazing too! …….Thank you for a wonderful stay!!’
Karen & Don, May 2016

‘The best birthday present EVER? We’ve had such an amazing few days. I was so excited about coming and was not disappointed. Though it rained for the majority of the time we were here it just added to the feel of being in a rainforest. Waking up every morning to nothing but the sounds of birds has been amazing. The peace and seclusion has been just what we needed. We’re both very sad to be going home.
Thank you and well done and for creating such a fantastic place for us all to escape to. We hope to see you soon.’
Ali & Crissie, May 2016

‘We would like to say thank you very much for sharing such an amazing creation with everyone. It is very impressive and has given us great ideas to maybe create something ourselves. Even the weather has made us feel like we were in a rainforest. We can’t believe what we have seen in this area. The biggest treat is the bats and owl down the lane. Not forgetting the abundance of deer. We hope to see you again in the future.’
Lisa & Jacob, May 2016

‘We marvelled the family’s creation – extremely impressive. Congratulations. We will book a stay for our daughter, she will love it. Thank you for a lovely weekend.’
Andie & Jon, May 2016

‘Thank you for making a childhood dream come true for both of us. We’ve enjoyed it so much and found it so relaxing & peaceful. We could happily live like this and it will be hard to return to a house of bricks and mortar. To get away from things we usually go wild camping, this feels the same but up a level and more cosy! We’ve seen tree-creepers, chaffinches, woodpeckers, blackbirds, robins, wrens, blue tits, great tits, buzzards, crows, wood pigeons, long-tail tits, all from the balcony! Thanks for letting us walk around the lovely grounds – we loved the English bluebells! ……a little piece of heaven!’
Esther & Ben, May 2016

‘Well! What a wonderful little getaway for us both! Our parents bought this weekend away for Christmas and they couldn’t have picked a more quirky and unique place! Just beautiful! We explored Honiton, Budleigh and Sidmouth during the day & at night enjoyed the peace and quiet with a glass of wine & scrabble! If you want somewhere you can relax, enjoy each other’s company and get away from it all……
Then This Is The Place! Enjoy! X’
Elizabeth & Martyn, May 2016

‘We have had an amazing long weekend, my Mom and Dad booked it for my birthday and it’s been such a wonderful experience, we will definitely recommend it to our friends and family. The Treehouse is so peaceful and beautiful and we are gutted to be going home but we will soon be back. Thank you for everything. XX’
Carly & Jack, May 2016

Dan & Sally, April 2016

‘What a lovely way to spend a long weekend, in a beautiful area in a stunning tree house. Our hosts have created the perfect getaway. We felt as though we were the only ones for miles. The tranquillity was bliss. We would highly recommend ‘The Nest’ to anyone, and plan to come back in the summer. A coastal walk in Otterton and Sunday lunch at the River Cottage Canteen in Axminster topped off an unforgettable weekend. Thank you!!’
