Downash Wood Treehouses: A Boutique Haven in the Treetops

Head up into the trees of Downash Wood for some wrap-around peace and quiet, where you’re lulled asleep by the forest sounds. All just an hour away from London.

Set within 5 acres of deciduous East Sussex woodland, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, two stunning hand-crafted treehouses await: Tinkers and Oakey Koakey.

Tinkers Treehouse is your romantic hideaway for two, with a secluded sun deck to enjoy outside and a waterfall shower to refresh in once inside. Oakey Koakey Treehouse, on the other hand, is built for families: it sleeps 4 and comes with bunk beds in the style of another mini treehouse for the kids to hideaway in.

Although different in size – and out of sight of one another – both treehouses are styled immaculately with luxurious fittings and fixtures that would be at home in a boutique hotel.

There’s underfloor heating, a fully-fitted kitchen and shower room, and an amazingly comfortable king-size bed. And all the utilities connected to the mains. The views from each are equally eye-widening: the floor-to-ceiling windows overlook your own private woodland where deer and badgers are often spotted.

Seclude and Private Location

Downash Wood is tucked between the royal town of Tunbridge Wells and the seaside towns of Hastings, Rye and Camber Sands, which all offer fantastic sightseeing and adventure. Tunbridge Wells is known for the Pantiles, a Georgian colonnade architectural gem, now famous for its jazz nights, diverse boutique shops and mix of cafes, restaurants and bars. Whilst Hastings is fun for all the family with amusement arcades, pebble beaches, local seafood stalls and restaurants in the old town.

Nearby Attractions

What’s more, both treehouses are next door to Bewl Water Reservoir, which is the largest reservoir in the south of England. It covers over 800 acres with a 12.5 mile reservoir route that’s ideal for walking and cycling. Plus, there’s lots of fun on the water with an aqua park, fishing, sailing, surfing, open water swimming, pedalos, canoes and paddle boarding rowing and much much more!  

Just down the road from the Downash Wood Treehouses is Bedgebury Pinetum, a 3,000-acre world-leading collection of conifers and an award-winning visitor attraction with cycling, walking, GoApe high rope climbing, horse riding and much more. 

Should you be lured from your treetop hideaway, you’ll discover fantastic local country pubs serving up locally-sourced and grown food and drink in relaxed and friendly atmosphere.   The Bell Inn in Ticehurst village won pub of the year in the South of England in 2017 and has gone from strength-to-strength.
