The space
Home of the designer builder of the solar showers and recycling ‘Reclaimator’ at Glastonbury from late 1980’s and first ‘Green Gatherings’
Passive solar designed for natural winter heating/summer cooling and a TMSthermalstore

Our Beautiful Eco-Home, nestled in the treetops of Three Cliffs Bay, will tantalize your senses and make you feel OH so at home.
Hand made from logs and recycled materials - there is love in the walls!
Designed to maximise internal space but minimise the external (for energy reasons) – Is truly like an eco ‘tardis’
The house is 3+ bedroom, however not in the conventional sense - 1 bedroom is on an upper mezzanine level - the 4th bed is adjoined in a cozy annexe snug with a low ceiling and curtain which separates the areas - although many adults have slept in this snug, we are now describing this as a kids room or a room if you are really keen to bring 8 guests - just let us know you are aware of this arrangement.

Be aware that the house is very open plan and privacy limited - so if you are all on holiday 'together' as a group - one big family, then Treetops is perfect! Just let the tree trunks and flickering flames from the open fire sparkle the earth pigment lime washed walls to create a timeless atmosphere!

Space - I lived here happily with my partner and two kids for many years, and we have even had groups of 10+ people stay.

Kitchen - Open-plan so you are all together, with fridge, toaster, kettle and an electric oven & hob - enough equipment to cook up delicious dinners! Please note we do NOT have a freezer.

Bathroom - shower with water heated from solar, wood or gas. Perfect to wash the sand off beachy feet. We are aware that our bathroom needs updating, and is next on our list of improvements for 2022 - due to covid this has been delayed.

Bedrooms - 2 x downstairs bedrooms, both sunny and bright, with curved hand carved walls and beautiful wood beams. One mezzanine alice-in-wonderland, up a spiral staircase, which kids absolutely love.

We also have a mezzanine over-looking the sitting area, for more responsible monkeys, and a grand view of all that is going on.
(for those that booked before 20/04/2022 - this will remain a bedroom area - we are planning to change this mezzanine bedroom into a sitting area in September 2022)

Outdoor - There is an open patio with a large table, a barbeque, outdoor fire pit and tap perfect for washing wetsuits! Also surfboard storage, padlock points for bikes and covered places to drip dry wetsuits & clothes. The garden sweeps upwards over terraces, spaces for yoga, apple trees and paths of sea shells.

Our home makes a beautiful romantic getaway for couples, wine in hand, logs crackling on the fire and with no disturbances.

For families, Treetops is a weird and wonderful adventure house, children love the magic of the mezzanines, the tree trunks running through the house and the excitement of the open fire, more communal than televisions! The open plan space allows for a real sense of togetherness.

It is also wonderful for groups of friends meeting to catch up and have a good time! However we must add that we are not the house to use for a wild party as we must respect our neighbours. Sound travels to their house quite easily so noise must be kept to a minimum during the night. I.e. no loud music... Sorry!!

This house is not a 5* luxury home - we do are absolute best to ensure it is clean and comfortable for our guests, however, if you are looking for hotel standards of living then we suggest that our house is probably not for you.

Where you’ll be

Parkmill, Wales, United Kingdom

Treetops is more or less as close as you can get by car to Three Cliffs Bay. You can walk to the famous Pennard castle with it's glorious sunset views over the river and beach, within 5 minutes. The beach is then a further ten minutes from there. Around the corner is another beautiful beach, Pobbles. By car you can quickly and easily access all of Gower's award winning beaches.

Treetops is on Sandy Lane, famous for it's hippy vibes, open minded and down to earth people, its green spaces and quirky hand built homes. It is a special place, famous to many people, and a real getaway from the hustle and bustle of normal life. An experience in itself!

Nearby are farmers markets, the busy fishing village of Mumbles, with many shops, cafe's and restaurants, and the Gower Heritage Centre. Pubs are within walking distance (one only 5 minutes away, perfect!)

Padlock points for bikes (cable type locks needed)
