WHEN it comes to booking a magical holiday let, can it get more magical than fulfilling a child-like fantasy and booking a stay in a treehouse.

Well thanks to Robert and Emily Graham from Netherby Estate, in Longtown, they’ve been making that dream a reality for holiday goers alike for the past five years with their high-up slice of paradise.

Nestled in what was once wild-lands between England and Scotland, the quirky destination hotspot offers a riverside treehouse and woodland yurt – both coming with woodfired hot tubs, making up for what is the ultimate, tranquil, secluded and most importantly ‘one of a kind’ staycation spot.

You’ll be totally immersed at Rob & Emily’s place as you crack into the welcome hamper of local, seasonal produce, stroll out onto the elevated walkway to soak up fresh country air and noise of woodland critters, perfectly complimented to a backdrop of sounds coming from the River Esk– all to be finished off with a relaxing soak in the outdoor tub, bliss.

“It was a way of diversifying the farm, and the idea of a treehouse was purely unique, and I’ve always loved that idea, there’s not many around in the UK and it just gives a bit of a unique wow-factor,” Robert said.

The treehouse which “always has someone it” has become extremely popular ever since it was erected, Robert said it was great during covid however, that he and his family finally managed to get a stay in it themselves.

“It’s great meeting new people all the time and those that have come from different parts of the country and even other countries, that’s the best part of it.

“We’re weighing up plans for the future now, we’re currently doing up a cottage, a long way down the line though, we’d love to add another one or two treehouses to the land and potentially even add a farm shop to the land.

“It’s still standing and hasn’t blown down yet, so we’re very happy with it all,” he said.
