The Lodge and Accommodation
The drive to Treetop Lodge winds through a wild flower meadow teaming with grasses and buzzing with bees. The path to the Lodge gently climbs through beech, ash and sycamore trees to the front door. The front door of the Lodge opens onto a small hall, with hanging space and full length cupboard, then leads directly into the large, open plan Kitchen / Dining / Sitting Room.
Kitchen / Dining / Sitting Room
With huge Picture Windows and double French Doors, the room immediately gives the feeling of immersion within the peace and tranquility of the woods. Set high on a rocky outcrop, the Lodge feels like a treehouse.
THE DINING AREA is situated to take full advantage of the immense picture windows.
THE KITCHEN is fully equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, oven, induction hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge-freezer. Ample crockery, cutlery, glasses, saucepans, frying pan and cooking utensils provide all you’ll need for your stay.
THE SITTING AREA centres on a recliner settee, with log burner and large smart TV to keep you entertained as you relax.
The hand-crafted, bespoke Super King-sized bed sits up against a unique Elm framed wall with very special hanging space. Double French doors give a view to the magnificent woodland.
A large, walk-in shower with rain head and separate hand-held shower. WC and large wash basin with large spaces either side for those essential toiletries.
A large deck with dining area will enable you to enjoy sun downers and admire the famous Dumfries and Galloway sunsets through the beautiful trees.
Instead of a hot tub, a more intimate outdoor, double-ended bath has been carefully located so you can enjoy the privacy of your own private woodland in a unique way!
The Lodge is built to a very high standard, with underfloor heating and a very high level of insulation and fully double glazed.
The Ardendee Woodland covers an area of about 4 acres, with mixed, mainly broadleaf trees: Ash, Oak, Maple, Sycamore, Rowen, Elm, Holly to name a few.
The woods are a haven for wildlife – Red Squirrels make their home here, together with numerous birds, while deer and rabbits raise their young in this peaceful spot. The trees are full of nesting birds in Spring and Summer – the dawn chorus mixed with the babble of the nearby water is a great thing to wake to!
