Treehouse in Cumbria with outdoor bathtub: Daydreaming of discovering somewhere new and staying somewhere truly unique? Nestled amongst the treetops and in the perfect position for exploring the much-loved Lake District, Tawny Owl is the optimum of a Unique hideaway.


Take your first steps across the bridge to discover your heavenly retreat. Dappled sunlight dances on the deck where views out across the lake and sweeping countryside instantly put your busy mind at ease. Admire the alfresco bathtub where starlit dips awaits. As you pull open the door and step inside your handcrafted hideaway, you will simply be amazed by the open plan space. Eclectic furniture created by the owners fills the treehouse, giving it the most soulful charm. The mix of industrial features and sumptuous soft furnishings truly create the most inviting ambience. Once you pop your bags on the floor you’ll realise, you might never want to leave this little slice of paradise amongst the trees.

Step Inside

The large windows allow for the natural light to flow effortlessly into the hideaway, giving the treehouse a real sense of indoor, outdoor living. The four-poster bed takes centre stage and promises the most peaceful nights rest. From the quirky dressing table to the funky kitchen, every way you look within this earthy house, will bring a smile to your face. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you’ll need to prep delicious meals. Including a double ring gas hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and kettle. Why not visit a local farm shop and pick up some seasonal produce and cook your loved one a meal to remember, best enjoyed out on the deck under the starlight? The distinctive interiors and industrial charm flows through to the ensuite shower-room. We especially love the statement sink which has been crafted from findings on the farm.


Once you’ve spent time taking in the stunning interiors, step out onto the decking and discover the beautiful outdoor space. From the alfresco shower to the swing seat and of course the dreamy bathtub, Tawny Owl is the perfect hideaway for those looking to immerse themselves in nature. As dawn calls, start the day by showering in the open air and sipping on freshly brewed coffee in the swing seat, and as dusk falls, pour yourself a glass of bubbles and soak away your worries amongst the treetops. Make your daydream to escape the hum drum of everyday life a reality and re-wild yourself at this serene sanctuary.

For nature lovers you are in for a treat, as various bird species such as kingfishers, buzzards, kestrels and nuthatch are often spotted in this woodland wonderland. If you are quiet, you may also be blessed with seeing deer, squirrels, badgers and the odd fox. On occasion, otters have also been seen by the water’s edge.


Tawny Owl has been crafted using reclaimed wood. The creative owners were inspired to make ecological furnishings using upcycled materials in innovative ways.


If you can convince yourself to leave your rustic haven, get ready to discover all that the Lake District has to offer. As an UNESCO-listed World Heritage site, the Lake District is home to rugged fells, vast lakes and gorgeous rolling hills. It really is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. If you head north towards Carlisle, you will find a range of interesting places to visit. Including Tuille House Museum and Art Gallery and the majestic 900-year-old Carlisle Castle. For the history fans, explore Hadrian’s wall for a glimpse into Roman Life.

While visiting this much-loved area of the UK, you are spoilt for choice. From the hustle and bustle of Windemere and its vast lake, to popular trips to the postcard-pretty villages of Ambleside and Grasmere. Why not try the famous Grasmere gingerbread and then hike England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike? Whatever you do when visiting the lakes, don’t forget your walking boots! There are also lots of lovely independent shops, markets and an array of local crafts just waiting to be discovered. With so many incredible things to see and do during your stay at Tawny Owl, you’ll be looking to return from the very moment you arrive.
