A treetop sanctuary, complete with an al fresco copper bath and an indulgent hot tub, blissfully secluded deep in the Cambrian mountains, close to the Ceredigion coast.
  • Sleeps: 5
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights

No matter how hard you tried, you simply couldn’t conjure up a more magical position for Ty’r Derw Treehouse (or “the house of the oak” in English).

Nestled deep in the heart of the awe-inspiring Cambrian mountains, the idyllic rural scenery promises to relax and revive your senses just as soon as you arrive. Meanwhile, if you hanker for lazy time spent by the coast, the beautiful golden beach and dunes at Ynyslas lie just seven miles away.

Perfect for groups of family or close friends, the elegantly-crafted, fully insulated treehouse sleeps up to five guests, with two comfy bedrooms: a kingsize and a twin that can be made into a second kingsize if preferred (please note that the fifth bed is a pull-out trundle bed, best suited to a child or small adult).

And while this may be a treehouse, you can put any thoughts of wobbly, haphazard childhood structures to the back of your mind, since Ty’r Derw is rich in grand, grown-up luxury.

Stylish facilities include a gleaming kitchen with fully-integrated appliances (including the all-important dishwasher), and an invigorating shower room…

…although you may prefer to lay back among scented bubbles in your al fresco copper bathtub, perfectly positioned on its own private balcony. There’s also a four-person hot tub if you enjoy more sociable soaks, primed for supreme sunset-watching. Just pop open a bottle of fizz to make your evening complete.

Linger by the soft-glowing firepit as the stars make their twinkling appearance in that vast, clear night sky, safe in the knowledge that you’ll have a toasty, underfloor-heated treehouse to return to when you’re all talked out.

After a sound night’s sleep, why not take your morning coffee out to the balcony, listening to a gentle soundtrack of birdsong and rustling leaves? Depending on the time of year, you can watch lambs frolicking and sheep grazing in the organic farm beyond.

If you’re staying put, you’ll find a hammock that’s perfect for curling up with a good book, or dust off your binoculars and indulge in a spot of bird-watching.
