Lost Meadow Treepod - Treehouse in Cornwall
Broom Park Farm
Suitable for children of all ages
Not suitable for pets
Children are very welcome. Sorry no pets.
It’s spherical, it’s sustainable and it’s suspended from strong cables 3m above the ground, with a ceiling window to watch the stars at night. Scale a sturdy wooden staircase to reach your bedroom in the trees, with owls for company. Clad in cedar shingles (an upgrade from its previous incarnation as a canvas 'tree tent'), the lightweight structure was ingeniously built both to minimise impact on the trees and to withstand unimaginable weights, with design inspiration taken from early zeppelin engineering, so both you and the woodland are in safe hands! The wood burner makes it suitable for stays year round.
When the sun's out, open up the double-glazed window to give panoramic views through the trees and down over the river - you have 20 acres to roam and explore shared only with the Warleggan Wagon guests (or some of your friends if you book the two together!) - and for even more open air relaxation, take a nap in the hammock in your ground-level camp – if you’re really quiet, you might get to see a kingfisher diving over the water. In fact, although it’s very impressive, the treepod itself is only the start of your woodland adventure. Ed and Jitka really have created the perfect retreat; running through your woodland camp is a babbling river complete with stepping stones. Below the tent is a kitchen hut, a fire circle, and there’s even a riverside living ‘room’ in an afternoon suntrap 20 m away.
As if a hanging globe for a bedroom, a river to fish in and 20 acres of woodland weren't enough, you're in a great place to sample all that North Cornwall has to offer. Go looking for the beast of Bodmin, or head down to the sea - you're just a half hour drive from the coast and the sandy beaches at Looe.
