THE WALK UP TO WOODNEST
Depending on your fitness levels, the walk from the parking place to the treehouses can take up to 30 mins. There is a combination of steel and wooden steps, plus walking on a natural stone path and uneven levels. This walk although it is short, the hike up is steep, you need to come prepared with good walking shoes and clothes.
Woodnest has two treehouses, each treehouse is perfect for two people, with space for four. Our maxium sleeping capacity is 4 persons.
We suggest if you book 4 adults in one treehouse that you know each other well.
No sorry we have a strict no-pet-policy.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN?
Children must be supervised by their parent/guardians at all times. Before bringing children to Woodnest, you should consider additional factors such as steep hills and uneven grounds, steep stairs and cliff edges. Young children will need to be assisted when walking up to the treehouse. We do not have cots or travel beds, you cannot push a stroller up there. We have high chairs, but please notify us when booking if you need a high chair.
The treehouses have underfloor heating, on all the flooring including the bathroom, this will be on when you arrive. A thermostat in the treehouse allows you to control the heat. We also have small extra heaters for an extra boost if needed.
IS WOODNEST SUITABLE FOR THE ELDERLY?
The hike up to Woodnest is steep and you should consider factors such as fitness levels, steep hills, uneven grounds, and heights. Handrails are only available at the last part of the walk.
The toilet and shower are inside the treehouse (we know.. can you believe it?!). Once you have arrived in the nest, you will not have to leave, to take care of any of your “business”. Towels and toilet paper are provided for our guests
Unfortunately, based on the location of the treehouses, we are unable to provide any alternate options for those who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids.
IS IT SAFE?
We have worked with multiple engineers to ensure the treehouses are safe, but In the rare case of extreme weather, the safety of our guests becomes the first priority, and therefore cancellations by the host may take place with short notice.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT SNOWS?
Snow adds an extra beauty to the surroundings but of course makes the walk to woodnest a little more challenging. In the winter seasons we do not recommend travelling with small children or the elderly. In the cases of extreme weather, heavy snow and ice, we may need to cancel your booking to maintain safety for our guests. A full refund will be given in this instance.
CAN WE COME AND LOOK AT WOODNEST?
One of the things that encourages our guests to stay at Woodnest is the fact that they have privacy, we would love to keep it that way. The property on which Woodnest is built is private. So we ask that you please follow the signs by holding distance from the treehouse and refrain from taking photos of the treehouses whilst we have guests there.
