This tranquil treehouse can be encapsulated by one single word. Wow.
Nestled between four beech trees in twelve acres of private woodland is Ravendere Treehouse. Situated in the pretty village of Lee, North Devon, the treehouse is within strolling distance of the beach. With the coastal towns of both Woolacombe and Ilfracombe being close by. This is a retreat reserved for grown-ups only, making it ideal for couples in need of a relaxing getaway. Although well behaved dogs are welcome to tag along. And what a retreat it is. Entirely bespoke and handcrafted, with private spa-like facilities in a peaceful location. And Ravendere doesn’t scrimp on modern luxuries either. With Wi-Fi, television with Apple TV and Netflix as well as plenty of DVDs. There are even board games if you’re feeling, well, bored. Whether your getaway is to unwind, or simply a lovely base from which to explore. You’re assured of a stay like no other.
The stunning interior of Ravendere Treehouse is a remarkable sight. Modern, yet filled with characterful features. Blending sustainable, recycled materials with quirky contemporary pieces, creating a homely, yet stylish vibe. The living area is a peaceful space in which to relax. Cuddle up on the comfy sofa, with the wood burning stove roaring. Or settle into the reading chair with a good book. In the kitchen area you have an electric induction hob, kettle, toaster and fridge/freezer. For those who need a coffee to get the day started, you’ll adore the Nespresso coffee machine. And you’ll find the oven above the wood burning stove. In the bedroom is a king size bed. And a divine roll top, freestanding bath in which to enjoy bubbles overseeing valley views. And if you prefer a shower, the rainfall walk-in shower is a real treat.
Enjoy expansive views from the elevated deck of Ravendere Treehouse. Or get out into the woodland itself and explore the gentle trail. Taking in cottage ruins, wildlife, a trickling stream and plenty of picnic spots. The outside facilities are brilliant. Outdoor leather lounger chairs, plus dining space. For those who fancy themselves as head chef, there is a MORSØ cast iron woodfired pizza oven and a MORSØ gas barbeque. And if you’re in need of a pamper, you have your own barrel sauna, plus a two-person hot tub. And for those brave enough, a reinvigorating cold bucket shower. Come night-time, grab a cosy blanket and head to the top of the woodland area. Light the fire pit and lounge in the chairs as you gaze into the twinkling night.
Located within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you’ll be keen to experience the great outdoors. The famed harbour town of Ilfracombe, and the gorgeous long golden sands of Woolacombe are within an easy drive. You could even hike there. If you fancy some water-based activities, check out Ilfracombe Sea Safari, or Woolacombe Surf Centre. If you’d like to explore further afield, Exmoor National Park is twenty-five minutes away. For a spot of heritage, National Trust owned Arlington Court is just under half an hour away. And no trip to Devon is complete without tackling the steep cobbled hill of the gorgeous fishing village, Clovelly. Just under an hour away, it’s a beautiful day out, steeped in maritime history.
