Nymetwood Treehouses is a family-run business set on a south facing valley with views over Dartmoor.
The 20-acre site is a mix of woodland, streams, meadows and apple orchards and is bustling with wildlife. Woodpeckers, owls and birds of prey are regular feathered visitors and if you’re lucky you might spot deer grazing at the edge of the woodland.
The setting is very rural, with rolling countryside for as far as the eye can see.
James and Cherie, their young children, a black Labrador and flock of free range chickens, live and work in a 200-year old farmhouse on the east side of the site. They wanted to create a unique, sustainable and luxurious place for people to truly relax, bathe in nature and escape the stresses of everyday life in absolute comfort.
The family were determined that the project should be low impact and benefit the local area wherever possible, so worked with local and renowned timber framers Emmanuel Hendry on the design and build. The Scandi-inspired cabins were a two year project of love, built using locally sourced and sustainable wood and low impact materials, as well as local contractors and suppliers.
Welcome hampers are also locally sourced and toiletries and cleaning products are organic and kind to the environment.
In addition, the owners have planted hundreds of new trees and hedge plants and turned their fields over to meadow to encourage butterflies, bees and other wildlife.
