Why we love The Hudnalls Hideout for a weekend

 “The Hudnalls Hideout is a beautiful Wye Valley treehouse where the only thing that matters is the two of you. Soak in the outside copper bathtub, fire-up in the woodland sauna or drink in the iris-widening views at the private Lookout Bar. You’ll unravel your knots, empty your minds and feel the world fall from your shoulders.”

Deep in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Hudnalls Hideout has to be experienced to be believed. This adults-only treehouse rises like the peak of a mountain amongst ancient, wildlife-rich woodland, but never breaks its cover. It means you can stay here, hidden under a chlorophyll canopy for an entire blissful weekend. The only ones who’ll see you are the songbirds that crowd around the bird feeder or the deer who meander through the thickets nibbling on leaves.

Owners, Sarah and Ade, hand-picked this spot when they decided to escape into the countryside and create something remarkable. In close collaboration with a team of specialist builders and architects, they brought their vision to life – and today, The Hudnalls Hideout has racked up many awards and been featured on Channel 4’s Extraordinary Escapes.

The Stay

Step inside to a towering space, with almost 40-square metres laid out over two levels and furnished with designer pieces from the online design brand MADE.COM.

The lower level open-plan living area has a Scandi vibe, featuring a suspended bio-ethanol Cocoon Aeris fireplace, which silent flickers away mess-free, a velvety fern-green sofa and chair for sweet nothings, and a vintage cocktail trolley with a complimentary nip of home-made sloe gin to get your weekend break started.

The showstopper in this room, however, is the wall-to-ceiling doors that open all the way up to the circular raised deck, flooding the room in fresh forest air when you roll them back.

The kitchen is a perfect package of high-end appliances, deluxe crockery and cutlery, and ‘pippy oak’ handmade open shelving. Eveything you need is there, if you can be bothered to cook for yourselves. If not, that’s fine: you can hire a private chef, cook over the firepit or make your own pizzas using the DeliVita oven outside.

The bathroom doesn’t disappoint: its copper and teal green palette hints at the exotic and features a double rainfall shower with views out to the trees. Outside, you’ll find a beautiful copper bathtub for two set on a giant reclaimed wooden plinth with a backlit hand-forged fern metal privacy screen. Sink yourself amongst bubbles as the sun sets overhead.

You reach the mezzanine level bedroom via a sweeping staircase fashioned around a cedar tree. Waiting for you upstairs is a king-size handmade loft bed and a view of the trees that you’ll dream about in weeks to come, trust us.

The Experiences

Naturally, The Hudnalls Hideout treehouse has a few special extras waiting up its sleeve. There’s a Swedish-style barrel sauna for two set just below the treehouse ready for you to fire it up with the wood provided.

What’s more, a pleasant walk away is The Lookout Bar & Larder – your own private bar with hard-to-beat views over the stunning valley below. Order your drinks before you arrive and they will be chilled and ready for you to enjoy. You can really dial up the romance here if you want by popping the question, renewing your wedding vows or even using it as a spot for an elopement wedding ceremony. It’s also a great place to celebrate a big birthday or anniversary in style.
