Our Tree house Adventure

Tuesday, 27 March 2018

There's nothing I love more than spending a few nights in a hotel room, there's just something so lovely about it and I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it's the crisp white sheets or the fact that you don't have to keep it tidy and maintained, or maybe its the spa like feeling you get when you get free little toiletries. Whatever it is, I love it. 

Most hotel rooms are the same, you get a bed, a vanity area, a bathroom and often a balcony and that's basically all you need. Gareth and I went down to Bournemouth last weekend to visit an old school friend of his, it was such a lovely weekend exploring Christchurch and Bournemouth itself I really like it there. However, back to the topic of hotels, I've always wanted to go somewhere completely different to what I have ever experienced before, I heard about a tree house at Chewton Glen a while ago and I've always thought it was so unique, little did I know, it was close by to Bournemouth. 

And here it is! As a child I never had a tree house, Gareth did. The closest thing I had was a little Wendy house in the back of the garden which I loved so much and it is my ultimate childhood memory. The Chewton Glen tree houses were not how you would imagine a typical tree house to be, but instead it was a luxury pad with everything you needed and lets not forget to say how warm it was. When we arrived, we were escorted to the tree house in a golf buggy which took us through the beautiful woodland area, the grounds were kept really nice and it was so tranquil and peaceful, just as I imagined it to be, the air was so fresh and I already miss being near the forest. I can only imagine how blissful it must be to go there in winter with all the snow.

 Let us take a moment to appreciate how amazing the interiors were, the tree house itself is circular to give it a real tree house feel, the furniture adds to this good vibe as it is shaped with the room. The semi- circular sofas and the round tables really added to the space and made it easy flowing. There was log wood potted around which visually made it feel so much warmer. The cushions and throws were little additions added that are so effortless but look so cosy, they even provided water bottles with knitted jumpers on for each person that sat upon the beds which I loved. I felt like I had stepped inside a cosy nest.

This was the view from the main bed, there's something so calming about this. Not to mention that the balcony has a hot tub! The tree houses allowed in a lot of light, and the large doors and windows really brought the outside, inside by giving people such breathtaking views. The table outside made it perfect for an outdoor picnic in summer.

The tree houses had an extra room for children or for those that visit with large families. It had a vertical ladder/staircase that lead up into this additional room which I though was genius. It really added to a real life tree house feel. The flow of wood around each of the rooms really gave it this realistic feel as though we were in an actual tree.

Here you can see again the water bottles provided on each of the beds, this room had two small singles. I found it to be a cute little room with woodland animals scattered around for pillows and plushies. The light flowed effortlessly into this room with the skylight windows which are perfect for admiring the stars at night. The tree houses provided everything you could ever want...and more. from a constant flow of food with a traditional tree house hamper delivered through a hatch and plenty of entertainment systems, with a television and Gareth's favourite, a touch gaming table. The secret hatch meant you could have your food delivered to you without you seeing anybody, which allowed you to have plenty of privacy.

 Now you may find this odd, but I love romantic bathrooms. Yes, bathrooms. I think there's just something so romantic about a his and hers sink and a stand alone bath by the windows. These tree houses are very private and so having a soak in a bubble bath with the blinds open and lighting a few candles is just perfect. I'm also obsessed with having a 'his and hers' sink area, maybe I'm just a little odd but it makes me excited for married life. Yes, reading that back, even I think I sound odd, but I find it all so romantic here.

 We ended our Chewton Glen experience with some lunch in the bar area. Chewton Glen tree houses will always be my favourite place to be. One day if I have children, I hope to bring them along here to experience this or even better, to build one of our own as a family, although, I cannot guarantee it'll quite so luxurious and modern. Instead I'll keep it very old school which is just as lovely.
