Boasting serene views across sheep-dotted fields, all the way towards the shimmering Bewl Water reservoir, Downash Wood Treehouses could be well-described as paradise in nature.
The site’s 33 acres of land and woodland comprises an enchanting collection of bespoke, gorgeously-named retreats, each one privately secluded in a designated East Sussex Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, no less.
Their latest creation, Daisy Chain Cabin, is a celebration of cosy simplicity… perfect for a romantic couple who want to reconnect with nature, and each-other. Proudly set atop a sandstone quarry wall, you can relax and enjoy magnificent, ever-changing rural views.
Filled with sensory treats and high-end facilities, the spacious, high-ceilinged cabin itself has the feel of a luxury chalet, complete with butter-soft seating and a log-burner to warm your evenings.
Relax in the bespoke ‘reading corner’, gainfully equipped with a sumptuous leather armchair and a well-stocked book-cabinet, or head out to your huge, covered deck and get lost in nature’s joyous soundtrack.
While you’re outside, why not switch on the soft fairy lights, then fill up the al fresco bath for the most indulgent stargazing bubble-soak imaginable? There’s also a vintage double rocking chair for long, lazy afternoons in the sun, and a Ooni wood-fired pizza oven to help you rustle up mouth-watering suppers.
You could also opt for trout-fishing in the reservoir, then cooking up the resulting catch – together with aromatic herbs foraged from the woods – on your double firepit, built with sandstone from the quarry.Keep reading
