A few weekends ago, Little B took me away for a belated birthday surprise. We try to go somewhere new every few months but it seems that our last trip away together was when we headed to Snooze in Brighton, so this weekend was long overdue! Little B tried his hardest to keep it a surprise from me, but y'know, sometimes a girl just needs to know what to pack for these adventures! The moment he told me that we were heading to the Treehouse Hideaway in Kent, I knew that he was a bit of a good egg (I knew it before, but more so now!)
The moment we had parked up underneath the Treehouse, we already felt relaxed and itching to unpack our pyjamas! As we walked over the cobbled path, we passed the perfectly placed hot tub and sun loungers and ventured up the stairs feeling a little like something from the Flinstones movie. The key to get into the Treehouse was located in a safe having been given a code via email, which seemed ideal for anybody's arrival, and once Little B finally managed to unlock the door, we were greeted with the most surreal and beautiful little hideaway that we'd ever seen. It was so inviting, that we already felt like we wanted to live here forever.
Waiting for us in the impressive kitchen, was a wonderful hamper that was full of local jams, juices and some pretty tasty chocolates that we just couldn't wait to tuck into! The owners had also gone that extra mile and included a birthday card and cake along with some balloons decorated around the hideaway - those little touches to a weekend stay are the most pleasing of things. As pleasing as the warm fire that Little B lit straight away.
The bedroom was simple, however the actual build of it did all the talking with the built in mirror where I could pretend to be Betty Rubble for the duration of our stay, and the bedding was pretty and floral, making us feel even more at home (Little B can just never get away from it!). And the view in the morning was absolutely breathtaking, feeling so peaceful looking out past the fresh flowers that were placed on the windowsill.
Entering the bathroom made us feel like gremlins (the good gremlins mind!) and we couldn't wait to get our really oversized dressing gowns on, flappy flip flops, open some cider and spend an evening chat in the hot tub. A bathroom's a bathroom, but not this one.. This amazing sink was too good not to share.
Although the weather was pretty miserable for our stay, it certainly didn't stop us enjoying the outside area. The hot tub was a perfect temperature where we spent many hours enjoying the bubbles and finally catching up. We can imagine that in the Summer, this would be an ideal place to bask in the sun with an ice cold drink and taking in the peaceful view that surrounded the Treehouse.
And nothing could top this beautifully designed place, than having a fire and a projector to cosy up in front of for a night of films and tapas! Little B loved being manly and keeping the fire lit, and I enjoyed the Camembert cheese that we nibbled on all evening, so it was a win all round. We'll be posting the second half to our trip soon!
