George Clarke’s very own dream treehouse project: an accessible design delivering a whole new perspective on the great outdoors!

The Sky Den was built by William Hardie Designs with connoisseur of creative and quirky constructions George Clarke, throughout the second series of his imagination-catching Channel 4 programme George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces. In an original move, this treehouse is composed of three different shapes that each blend together the best of outdoors and indoors, taking in everything from the red squirrels in the trees around you to the sweeping river just below. 

The square is the central point of the treehouse and your main living space, with glass doors opening onto a wide balcony with captivating views over the river. Inside, George has exploited his small spaces expertise to create an impressively versatile space, with a functional kitchen in a clutter-phobe’s paradise of fold-away furniture (including two single beds) and wet room accessible from the deck. Then there’s the circle, a simple viewpoint of corrugated iron, where you can have a picnic and brew up a cuppa the old-fashioned way over the wood-burning stove. Finally the triangle is the loft space of your already lofty suite, accessed by steps from the outside deck. In good weather, when there is no wind, it's possible to open the whole roof for an unobstructed view of the gold tier Northumberland Dark Skies.  

It’s not just the structure the makes this place amazing. Set in the heart of the Calvert Trust within the Kielder Water & Forest Park and a short walk from the main activity centre, this will enchant wildlife lovers and adventure-seeking families alike; the Calvert Trust Kielder has 30 years of experience in providing unforgettable, accessible and fully inclusive activity holidays to people of all abilities. As well as sharing the forest with around 50% of England’s native red squirrel population and two regular pairs of osprey, you’ve got watersports, rope courses, climbing, orienteering and much more, literally on your doorstep. Book onto an activity day or discover England’s largest forest and its many woodland trails for yourself.

See 'Essentials' for more info on accessibility.
