A unique, one-bedroom, treehouse-style cottage tucked away amongst the trees on a picturesque, country estate in Dorset that is a superb romantic hideaway.
Oozing character and charm, this treehouse-style cottage in the woods is fantastic for a couple to enjoy a rural getaway in Dorset. Set within 30 acres, that used to be a vineyard, the cottage is part of a small collection of holiday properties at the site but enjoys its own secluded spot, perfect for a romantic break. The design is quirky and the surroundings will instantly immerse you in nature through woodland walks on the estate and the soothing sounds of birdsong to relaxing in the hot tub beneath a star-studded sky. Meanwhile, the Georgian market town of Blandford Forum is only a five-minute drive away and the location is also superb for exploring the Jurassic Coast.

Why we love this

  • Located in the heart of Dorset yet only a 30-minute drive from the Jurassic Coast
  • Enchanting, secluded setting amongst the trees with a private hot tub
  • Enjoy strolls through the woodland and lazy lunches at local country pubs

A bespoke, hexagonal, wooden cottage designed in the style of a treehouse, this property is quirky, cosy and ideal for escaping modern-day life for a while.

It has a light and airy feel, with neutral tones that add to the sense of calm instilled by the location, while accommodation is set out over two levels.

On, the ground floor there is an open-plan living space. Sink into the sofa and enjoy a coffee as you plan your day, or there’s a Freeview TV so you can watch your favourite programme.

The modern kitchen area is stylish and equipped with an electric oven, a gas hob, a microwave, a fridge, a kettle, a coffee machine and a toaster so that you can easily cater for all your meals if you wish. There’s also a dining table and chairs to seat two.

A spiral staircase leads upstairs to the first floor where you will find the bedroom which is the true heart of the treehouse. From the double bed, there are views through the trees from several windows.

There is also a shower room with a shower cubicle, sink and WC.

Outside, you can take advantage of your private garden, surrounded by trees. With a hot tub, garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ, you can relax with a glass of wine, enjoy some stargazing and take a long soak.

There is also a dedicated parking space for one car.

There is a key safe where you can access the key to the property for a self-check-in. The cottage is set on a country estate shared with several other holiday properties.
