What Past Guests Are Saying
What an amazing adventure!
I don't think I have the words to express what a wonderful time we had at the treehouse. This place is truly amazing, unique and quirky. This was a surprise weekend away for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary and I could not think of a more wonderful place to spend it. Very peaceful location that looks out onto a wildlife park and the hot tub was a wonderful way to relax with a glass of fizz in the evening. On arrival we were overjoyed to find a beautiful welcome basket which was full of yummy local produce. It is finishing touches like this that make this place perfect. All I can say to anyone who reads this is, please visit this unique place. You wont regret it. We are already looking at dates for our next visit.
A friendly service and really enjoyed our stay in this unique accommodation. The location and amenities were great. Appreciated all the little extras and treats
Amazing honeymoon in the trees!
If you're looking for somewhere different to stay you've found the perfect place! The treehouse is cleverly constructed to look amazing but is also comfy and roomy. We loved everything from the welcome hamper to the jacuzzi to the big screen cinema system ... We could go on for hours
The treehouse is 2 mins walk from a pub serving fantastic food and next to a bus stop with frequent services to Whitstsble and Canterbury
Michelle and Chris gave us complete privacy but made it clear they were on hand if we needed them
Tremendous (no pun intended)
Gemma & Chris
The treehouse was beyond our expectations, beautifully made and decorated had a very homely feel which we didn't want to leave!
We were lucky to be graced with a week of sunshine but could enjoy the treehouse no matter what the weather!
The local pub 2 min walk away and Whitstable 5 min drive away were both lovely to go out for food and drinks but equally great was cooking in the treehouse and relaxing with the big screen projector!
The hot tub is a fantastic extra and great to relax in after a tough day by the sea!! Another cosy touch was the log burner despite it being warm was still fun to get it burning!
I have already recommended to others who have already booked up and will continue to do so as well as planning a reason for another visit!!!
Thanks to Michelle for great communication, an amazing experience to stay in!
I can't put into words what a gorgeous little place this is. It was beautiful. So much attention to detail and a lovely setting. Lying in bed, you can see the trees and the bifold door makes you feel like you're outside when you're in. The bathroom is beautifully done as is just about everything. There is a great area with loungers and a chimnea bbq underneath, all enclosed and private. Not to mention the hot tub! Up top, there is decking from which you can watch the goats next door as well as some stunning sunsets.
I can't begin to describe how much I loved this place. Sheer perfection. They even left a cake, wine and banners as I mentioned it was for my partner's birthday. We are saving our pennies to come back very soon!

Magical Tree House.
My husband kept this all very secretive from me. It was all worth it when we arrived, I was overwhelmed how stunning this place is. Michelle and Chris have done a fantastic job with this Tree House. It is real magical and you feel like you are in a different world. The hot tub is lovely very private and the complimentary bubbly came in very handy late at night in the hot tub. Thank you to you both for making our short break so magical. Will be defiantly back soon. I will recommend this place to everyone a romantic short break is just the answer to our busy life style in London.You wont regret it I'm telling you. Enjoy the Magical tree house XX

TheTreehouse Hideaway is a wonderful place to relax and unwind
We went to the treehouse for my birthday and I couldn't have asked for anything nicer, we had a fantastic time.
When we arrived there were balloons a banner a cake and bottle of bubbly in the fridge for us, how wonderful.
A welcome pack was waiting for us too, the treehouse is quite unique, so much thought has gone into this delightful place.
Lots to do in the surrounding area, details of which were available.
The private hot tub was used several times!The log burner and underfloor heating ensured it was nice and cosy.
We will most definately be returning,
Thank you , Chris and Michelle for giving us an experience we will never forget.
Louise and Wayne
Sapassed all of our expectations
Fabulous accomadation, the attention to detail and personal touches make this tree house retreat a really special place to stay
Treehouse has the wow factor
The treehoues is 5 star luxury accomedation and a great place to stay for visits to Cambridge and surrounding area.
On arrival there was a hamper, pint of milk, and bottle of wine, which was unexpected and a very nice touch there are also robes and slippers provided for your walk to the hottub below the treehouse.
There were also birds nesting in the roof space that you could easily hear through the air vents in the kitched which was a very nice way to wake up.
I highly recomend a stay at the treehouse.
A complete escape and so easy to relax!
Such an unusual place to stay. Felt at home straight away. The treehouse had everything we wanted. Loved the hot tub, log burner and cinema set up. We had a really relaxing time. Great location for Whitstable and Canterbury. Very quiet and secluded. Would definitely recommend to a couple wanting to get away. Very comfy bed too! Michelle and Chris were very helpful and good at communicating.

The perfect escape
I booked this for a surprise birthday treat for my wife. I had kept it a secret until on the way there and told here just 15-minutes away, though I told her it was a proper tree house and we were in sleeping bags. She was thrilled, so imagine her face when we turned up and were greeted by this fantastic, luxurious residence. Nothing in this property has been forgotten, with only top quality items used. We had the most amazing time and really didn't want to leave. The house aside, the care and attention to detail Chris and Michelle put in to ensuring your stay is nothing but first class, is just exceptional. We could seriously live here for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much.

Perfect mini-moon escape
We had a few nights away in the tree after or wedding to unwind and start or married life! It was perfect and the hot tub, welcome hamper and bottle of bubbles were a lovely touch.
Ange & Dean
What a fabulous 'get away from it all' break!
We literally spent the first 15 minutes walking around the tree house gasping 'Wow's. It has a wonderful feel to the place, warm, inviting and cosy with so much character and Michelle and Chris made us feel at home with a welcome hamper and bubbles in the fridge! We loved the hot tub, a really private space with ambient lighting, the perfect place to relax and unwind. We had read the reviews beforehand so the tree house had alot to live up to - and it did, we were not disappointed, the care and thought that has gone into it makes this hideaway a perfect treat and we will definitely be back.
Tree Houe Hideaway
Just to say thank you so much for such a fabulous weekend, your tree house is truly spectacular! When I booked it at Christmas I thought by the end of March we would be having picnics on Whitstable beach, but I don't think we could have picked a better weekend, curled up on the sofa in front of the fire whilst it was snowing was magical!
Thanks so much - we will be definitely coming back soon!
Alexa and Gavin Stewart
Booked the Treehouse for my wife's birthday treat. What a great place! On arrival there was a. Bottle of prosecco, a goodies hamper, a card and even balloons and a banner! Awesome! The treehouse is a lovely place to stay, really well finished with all mid cons. The hot tub is just fantastic!!
We will definitely return for another visit!!
Cosy and romantic!
I have only good things to say about the Treehouse Hideaway. From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel welcome. My partner and I spent a good 15 mins just looking around and saying wow when we first got in. The attention to detail is amazing, it's so quirky and cosy. One of the best things about it, especially in the colder months, is the underfloor heating. It keeps the treehouse lovely and warm. We didn't use the log burner very much, as we were happy and warm enough with the underfloor heating. The hot tub is amazing too, especially on a cold night when you can just relax. The lighting around it is very romantic also. So romantic in fact, that my boyfriend decided to propose! So we left as an engaged couple!
The surrounding area is nice. There's a pub just down the road which has a nice atmosphere, but not very much choice on the menu. We went for a walk in Blean woodlands which was lovely. We also went into Canterbury, and spent all day there, as there's so much to see and do.
All in all, just perfect, and I would recommend the treehouse to anyone. We will definitely be going back when we can afford to!
Great little place for a weekend away
We stayed in the Treehouse and thought it was excellent. Check in was easy and Chris met us and shower us how to work a few things. The treehouse was very clean, with extra touches like wine and a hamper adding to the upmarket feel it has. Craftsmanship was amazing, the big tv was great and log fire we had going the whole time kept it warm even when snowing outside.
The nearby pub was brilliant, great food and live music by a log fire. The hot tub was boiling and a welcome place to go even though it was -1 outside!
Overall I would definitely recommend this place to couples for a special occasion or getaway. Chris was on hand on the phone when we had a question and replied straight away. Michelle was very helpful with info prior to arriving.
I almost didn't write a good review as I wouldn't want it getting too popular! Will definitely be back - a unique treat that has the wow factor.
Thoughtful and unique
A beautiful hideaway retreat, thoughtful,romantic and perfect in everyway. We arrived to be greeted by Happy Birthday banners, a wonderful welcome pack and a bottle of Prosecco and a birthday cake to top it all. Every detail thought of with 5 star comforts. The private hot tub and projector screen made for an unforgettable stay. You really will not want to venture out!
Chris Whalley is clearly a very clever and talented man, the workmanshipp thats gone into this handbuilt tree house is simply amazing. Michelle's added touches such as the kent cottage holidays hamper, and the chilled prosecco waiting for us in the firdge also add to the magic.
Me tarzan - you very lucky to stay here...
This is a real gem of a property; a holiday hideaway with just the right balance of tree top quirk and top end luxury. Well thought through in every way, from the Flintstones path (past the hot tub...) to the curiously-at-home projector TV, there's everything here to help you get away from it all - without leaving civilisation behind. Great service and warmth of welcome, as ever. Terrific location too, with Whitstable and Canterbury just a short drive away, and a decent pub wothin easy walking distance. Highly recommended.
Benjy & Aimée
Fantastic service, couldn't have asked for a simpler booking process or better communication. Michelle kept me in the loop about what to do on arrival and Chris was on hand to show us around and to answer any questions.
The treehouse is phenomenal, really a beautiful and romantic spot that we were devastated to have to leave!
Can't wait to stay again!
Wow wow wow!
What a wonderful place and accompanied by wonderful owners. I booked this Treehouse Hidaway as a suprise for my wife's birthday, Michelle kept up the secret by only contacting me. We had an amazing time. After 20mins of having the TV on the projector broke, but after one message to Chris, he was straight round with a new one and within 15 mins it was all sorted. Now thats what I call service, and the smile!!! This is a place you really should visit, as it has everything you could ever want. The hot tub is great and the whole place is just so comfortable. My wife and I have stayed in many places UK and abroad, and this is the best we have had so far. Not sure what will beat this now, but Chris's new venture that he is building soon (we hope, if Michelle doesn't stop him! hee hee) should top it! Cant wait Chris. Thank you for everything you two, and we wish you all the sucess in the future. We will definatly be returning.
What an amazing place to stay! A real Hobbit hideaway.
The attention to detail is what makes it, and a lovely area to stay, relax and eat great food at the local pub only seconds away. I would recommend this to everyone and am already thinking about staying again.
Response from Michelle Whalley - 01/31/2013
Than you for the lovely comments. Wow!! What lovely pictures Sophie. Look forward to seeing you again
Perfect romantic weekend break
The treehouse is even more impressive than it looks in the pictures - the design is incredible and the facilities were extremely high standard. The whole place is spotless, warm and cozy, and perfect for a romantic weekend break.
A bottle of wine and a hamper of treats were provided on arrival, which was a lovely touch. There are also books, DVD and a Scrabble board. The hot tub was private and lots of fun. We only had one issue which was to do with the projector, and when we rang chris to ask for his help he was prompt and efficient in getting back to us. I can't recommend this highly enough - well worth the money.
Phil & Jess
Best Birthday Ever
My girlfriend surprised me with a two night stay for my birthday, Wow! Everything about it was amazing, especially the hot tub and the huge flat screen tv! The owners had even left a birthday cake and card out for me on arrival, plus fruit, chocolates and a bottle of sparkling wine. The place was spotless and looked even better then the pictures. Will definitely be going back!
Phil & Jess
Romantic, luxurious hidden little gem
The tree house surpassed our expectations. Having visited other properties owned by the owners we had high expectations and were not let down. We needed to unwind and shut out the world! what a fantastic place to do so! projector t.v, log burning stove, outside hot tub and strawberries and bubbly to top it all!! what more could one want?
The location was quiet, the tree house was perfectly equipped for 2 and had a warm and welcoming feel. Can't wait to return!
Amazing tree house
This was perfect in every single way. It was warm and cosy on arrival and we were greeted with treats in the kitchen which added that special touch. If your looking for a romantic retreat then this is perfect to enjoy some quality time with a loved one. The surrounding areas of Canterbury and Whitstable are lovely and there are many things to do. Herne Bay is worth a visit, very different experience in winter and would like to see it in summer. Would certainly be booking this magical treehouse again. Amazing!!!
On arrival you cannot help but be stunned by the unusual and stunning treehouse. When you step inside you are instantly struck with the cosy, clean and incredible design. It's when you go around having a closer look that you can appreciate the faultless finish. Thoughtful touches like the dressing gown and slippers, food additions and immediate necessities were a lovely surprise as was the heated flooring in the kitchen and bathroom. The hot tub is a must!!! Especially as our stay was over the Christmas period, our stay was magical and it made for a great escape from Town. Throughout the booking and arrival process the individuals who have taken care of of us have been more than helpful and have made it stress free, We would'nt hesitate to return.
Chilled out cosy retreat with luxury mod cons taken care of
I bought the two night stay at the Treehouse Hideaway for my husband's birthday so we could get away from it all at New Year. We had been to another of Michelle and Chris's properties before and knew that everything would be perfect. The Treehouse is unique. A quirky design, furnished to a high standard with a fabulous hot tub underneath, shielded from the elements. a wonderful welcome from Chris, and well stocked kitchen, including bottle of bubbly chilling for us.
The stay was so quiet and peaceful, we caught up on being together and lots of films on the big screen. Walks in the woods and by the sea, and lots of great restaurants and pubs to choose from. We will go again - my daughter and son in law are going in a few weeks. Recommend highly.
James and simone
Faultless, quirky and a great all round stay
Treehouse really does need to be seen to be appreciated. Even though the pictures enticed us to come and stay for a long relaxing weekend, on arrival our expectations were easily surpassed. Build quality is top notch with the feel of a 5 star hotel room but with every home touch you could think of. At the time we commented if the Ritz did Peter pan you'd probably end up with something like this.
Whitstable is obviously lovely and for a bit more bustle Canterbury was only a very short drive away.
We had a fantastic stay, with great hosts, and will definitely recommend to all of our friends in the future.
Great cosy and fun treehouse!!
We loved spending the night at the treehouse- the roaring fire and underfloor heating made the place so cosy, it is immaculate and obviously a lot of thought has gone in to the finishing touches and no expense spared! Will be recommending to friends and family and definitely visit again!
Sonya & Matt
Michelle and chris made booking and our stay very easy and welcoming. coffee,milk,orange juice,croissants,chocolate and wine on arrival,the latter very nice in the superb hot tub!Infact we spent most of the time in the hot tub even though the temperature out side was freezing, the under floor heating in the tree house was lovely and warm so the log burner wasn't really needed, but well you've just got to have the fire going too, its just so cosy! every thing about the treehouse is luxury and just sooo relaxing! I would highly recommend and have already to friends a stay in the tree house hideaway,we are already checking the calender for another stay!! Stunning! All my childhood dreams covered (always wanted a tree house!). Extra's we liked were oven,hob,dishwasher,huge tv screen (projected on wall awesome!),fride freezer,well everything thought of really!
Charlie & Alison
The most luxurious tree house!
We stayed at the Treehouse Hideaway in late November and it was wonderful. It was cosy and warm and felt lovely and Christmassy with the very efficient wood burner glowing. The Treehouse was beautifully set out, warm, clean, well equipped - we very much appreciated the provisions left for us. The Hot Tub was fantastic of course. We would recommend it to anyone and hope to go back, maybe for a summer break next time.
Treehouse break- absolutely fabulous!
We stayed at the Treehouse for a couple of nights and had great expectations of what looked to be a unique and luxury treehouse. We were not disappointed. It surpassed our expectations and was extremely well equipped and cosy. We made full use of the facilities and would recommend and we will be back maybe in the summer to enjoy throwing back the bi-fold doors and taking in the scenery.
Kirsten & Ian Collin
A totally unique, romantic getaway.
We arrived in Blean on a cold November's evening to a warm and cosy Treehouse Hideaway. This was a surprise birthday treat from my husband and what an amazing treat it was! The Treehouse is luxurious, romantic and unique in every way. Obviously built with love and care, the owners have created a home with excellent facilities, quirkiness and imagination. The secluded hot tub was perfect for a late night dip!
The owners are dedicated to ensuring that we had the best experience possible by adding personal touches to our stay. On arrival there were all the basic necessities that we needed including milk, fresh coffee, croissants and fresh orange juice.
Whilst staying at the Treehouse, we visited both Canterbury and Whitstable which are both in close proximity to the cottage. We had dinner at the Whitstable Oyster company which was delicious.
All in all we had a fantastic weekend that we cannot fault which went far too quickly, and we will definitely recommend to our friends. We look forward to hopefully staying at the Treehouse or another property with Kent Cottage Holidays.
Thanks for a fantastic weekend!
London, United Kingdom
To sum our weekend up in word it was amazing! Michelle and Chris were brilliant form the second we booked. Any questions that we had they were more than happy to answer. When we arrived we were blown away at how amazing the treehouse was! It is situated in a great location, a pub 50 yards away always helps. We didnt venture out much but there is lots to do around.
The hot tub was amazing and we spent a lot of time in there, it was cold getting out but we went straight up and sat by the log burner that was also brilliant.
We had an amazing time at the treehouse hideaway and we really could not have asked for anything more!
We will certainly be returning!
Rich and Lizzy
I booked an evening at the treehouse as a surprise for my girlfriends 30th birthday and had an amazing time. The owners made the booking straightforward and friendly. Upon arrival we were excited to find a very clean and exciting getaway. I would highly recommend a stay at this location to anyone who is looking for a romantic getaway. The hot tub was an added bonus which went down a treat.
Fanstic short break
We stayed in the Treehouse for a couple of nights and had the amazing relaxing time. We made full use of the Hot Tub and the cinema screen. Everything was thought of and the interior was delightful. Very quiet and peaceful and private and would highly recommend it to friends and family.
A brilliant concept and I hope it goes from strength to strengh. You can tell love and passion have gone into the Treehouse.
Well located, quirky stay with a fabulous hot tub
We were one of the first guests to stay in the treehouse and the owners had told us that some of the landscaping wouldn't be finished by our stay. I was expecting much worse - it was hardly noticeable. The treehouse was exceptional well finished and well thought out. The kitchen area was extremely well stocked and basic stuff (tea, coffee, fruit, pool, salt pepper etc) were provided. Our only gripe was keeping the log burner going with the huge logs provided. The private hot tub is situated underneath the treehouse - really nice and relaxing, and will be even better when the landscaping is finished.
The treehouse is well situated to visit Canterbury, Whitstable, Herne Bay and many other places and is in walking distance to part of Blean woods. We visited Sandwich on Wednesday afternoon and were shocked to find that nearly all of Sandwich was shut. I was totally surprised that anywhere still has early closing! The local pub was just round the corner and provides reasonable food. The restaurant was empty when we went and it felt a bit ... cold and echoey.
The Pearson's arms in Whistable was great and we'd highly recommend it! We had tried to get a table at Wheeler's Oyster bar but just couldn't get in.
All in all, a fab midweek break in October to blow the cobwebs away!
Wow! Fabulous experience - a beautiful property in a wonderful a
We were lucky enough to be the first people to stay here!
Brilliant attention to detail: tree themed sinks, tree and leaf patterns on upholstery, a logburner (only needed it one afternoon and evening as the underfloor heating was so effective!). We made full use of the hot tub which is underneath the treehouse so protected from the rain. The setting is beautiful too - overlooking the animal enclosures.
Chris and Michelle were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed and that everything was just right!
On the first night, we ate in the local pub - the Royal Oak.
Very easy to get around from here. We caught the bus one day into Canterbury - right outside the property and easier than messing around with parking. The next day we caught the bus down to Whitstable. Both towns have so much to do and many wonderful restaurants. You could easily stay here without a car - public transport is quick, frequent and reasonable.
