Stay Somewhere Truly Inspiring


If you need to unwind, then come to our Treehouse Retreat at Squirrel’s Nest, where it’s pretty much impossible to stay wound up. Lie back and relax in our comfy chairs, chill in the huge hammocks strung between the stilts and, of course, soak amongst the bubbles in our hot tubs out on the decking. That is assuming that you ever make it out of the incredibly comfortable bed, set beside giant windows that frame your completely private slice of welsh countryside. Just outside there are cooking facilities and seating, the perfect spot to crack open the welcome wine or toast a few marshmallows as the sun goes down.

Inside


An open plan space designed with care and creativity. A modern kitchen and lounge space, accented with touches of bright fabrics and inventive woodwork showing the love and craft of designers, builders and owners John and Laura. Beautiful views flow in through the windows and wide glass doors, bringing nature into every room.

Outside


If you decide to leave your fabulous nest, you could take a picnic up to the top of the hill for stunning views of the surrounding countryside . There are OS maps to guide you through the 900 acres of hillside and beyond, while the Elan valley offers great biking and hiking along woodland trails and over the dramatic Elan dam.

Luxuries


Tea, coffee (ground, pods and instant), cake and a bottle of wine are provided on arrival. A luxury hamper can be ordered direct with the owner for £35. This includes locally sourced chocolate, Snowdonia cheese, Welsh cheese crackers, Welsh butter, elderflower lemonade and muesli. Celebration packages can be provided for Honeymoons, Birthdays and Celebrations.

A Touch of History


The name ‘Trawscwm’ originates from the remains of an old Farmhouse situated just beside the Treehouse. Squirrels Nest has been part of a working sheep farm for hundreds of years. Many of our sheep graze on the 900-acre hill named Maelienydd which is now owned by the Crown.
