Birthday getaway for two!

The Loft Tree House completely exceeded our expectations (and they were quite high!).
It was the perfect luxurious retreat to relax, unwind and bask in the beautiful surroundings, not only of the tree house but of the woods it's nestled in.
It has been decorated, styled and furnished with top of the range things that suit the feel of being amongst nature.
We loved watching and hearing the birds, woodpeckers and squirrels whilst curling up on the sheepskin rug in front of the wood burner.
Lazing in bed looking at the ocean was a real treat too!
Would 100% recommend it and would go back again in a heartbeat! - Mary-Anne R

perfect for our honeymoon break

Driving through tiny lanes of north Devon, car wing mirrors clipping each hedge, we were filled with a mix of trepidation & stomach fluttering anticipation to see the holiday venue of choice for our ‘minimoon’.

Having married 48 hours before, we had booked a trip on the spur of the moment after being gifted a voucher for Canopy and Stars as a surprise wedding present. As we rounded the hairpin corner of Pickwell Manor we were not disappointed! Before us lay beautiful manicured grass & a driveway with stone pillared electric gates. A wonderful welcome awaited us from our host before we were shown to our magical ‘hobbit house’ hidden in the trees.

Up a short flight of wooden steps we found a terrace bathed in dappled sun and an idyllic little pod inside of which was everything we could possibly wish for. The treehouse was warm, comfortable, quirky and luxurious - perfect for our honeymoon break.

We realised immediately that rather than go out to eat we would rather stay in our little haven and take in the distant sea views as the sun set with a glass of fizz in hand. We lit the log burner & cuddled up listening to the twilight birdsong & pondered how very very lucky we were!

Treehouse mini-moon in The Loft

We booked a 2 night stay in The Loft treehouse for a little mini-moon following our wedding, and it was amazing - absolute bliss! The accommodation is fantastic - clean, comfortable, stylish, practical, luxurious and overall is 5 star! We settled in very quickly, and enjoyed quite a lot of time sat out on the balcony. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere - and have the most beautiful views of the coast/sea and of course the forest. All the practical stuff needed for a short self-catering stay is provided, but all the little extras really made it 5*; woodburner, hot water bottles, dressing gowns, very comfortable bed, amazing shower etc! It was absolutely fantastic, and we would return immediately if we could!
The location itself is great, we enjoyed the coastal walk to Woolacombe and back and also nipped into Braunton to have a look around! Lots of great places to eat and explore nearby! Pickwell Manor offers more accommodation than just the treehouses. If the other accommodation there is anything like The Loft, then I expect its great - it looks good for family holidays too!
Overall, it was superb, a real gem!

Incredible few days at Peaceful Pickwell

This is our third visit to Pickwell, this time we took the children. Pickwell is set in such peaceful surroundings and the layout of each individual unit, creates privacy for occupants. Everything you could possibly need, is on hand. From picnic rucksacks, to surf boards and bicycles.
The facilities are very well maintained and the beds are the comfiest.
If you are happy with self check-in, everything is straight forward with the Pre-arrival information providing you with all you need. Nonetheless, Simon and Julia are on site to offer a warm welcome. The children were lucky enough to feed the pigs and Pygmy goats, with Simon and were sent back with fresh hens eggs for breakfast.
We will definitely be returning again, with and without the children! - Kirsty Mather

Everything was perfect

I booked Bliss and Grace apartments for a family visit to North Devon and am so pleased I did. Everything was perfect - luxury accommodation, peaceful location and a real family feel. The Pickwell team even arranged for the children in the group to meet the animals on the farm including hunting out a personalised egg in the hen house. The care and attention to detail made for a truly special weekend. Please pass on my sincere thanks to the whole team. 

Kind Regards, 


the most wonderful weekend

"We’ve just returned from the most wonderful weekend away in one of Pickwell Manor’s treehouse. We could not fault it. The beautiful views across to the sea from the treehouse were to die for, the estate is kept immaculate and has everything you need! I have already recommended it to friends and after seeing our photos they’ve booked as well! 5 star facilities, location and experience. The perfect romantic weekend away whatever the weather. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️" - Laura Paveley.

Peaceful Perfection

The hideaway treehouse at Pickwell Manor is pure bliss. With numerous luxuries and mod-cons inside, nothing has been forgotten and every little extra is full of thoughtfulness and care. From chocolate to hair dryer, prosecco to an outdoor swing, and underfloor heating to a wood burner...

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay, the weather was a bonus, but even if the weather had turned bad the cosyness of the hideaway would have been plenty. 

Julia and Terri were both friendly and on hand at all times if we had a problem. 

Lots of things to do in the area , suggested by the hosts, for families, adults and children. 

We would definitely return to the hideaway treehouse a beautiful, comfortable, luxurious alternative to camping . We will be recommending it to all!


We wanted to try something different so booked one of the new stunningly designed treehouses at Pickwell Manor for the weekend and were so impressed we didn't want to leave! The attention to detail inside the treehouse is second to none: stylish interior design, fully kitted out modern kitchen, awesome shower room and cosy kingsize cabin bed with views over the surrounding countryside. It's been so lovely to escape London life, wake up to the sound of birdsong and have breakfast on the treehouse terrace - bliss. Great for any time of year - fabulous in the summer and cosy and romantic in the winter snuggled up in the evenings by the beautiful wood burner. Plus the owners are super lovely and around to help if you need anything at all. I can't recommend it enough! - Jane Akers

A great few days away!

My partner and I stayed in “Amity” the perfect little cottage for a weekend away! The location was beautiful and only a stones throw away from the beach! The weather wasn’t perfect in a blustery October but that didn’t stop us from enjoying ourselves. We ventured down to the beach and walked to Woolacombe, we went to the local pubs, and even stopped off for some shooting at the north Devon shooting ground on our way to the manor! We were greeted by a lovely guy, Ben! He made sure we found our way to the cottage and helped settle us in perfectly. He also met us on our way back to the car- a great, lovely guy. The apartment was impeccably clean, and had EVERYTHING we needed. We even cooked 2/3 nights that we stayed there. Brilliant location, brilliant place to stay, brilliant family-run business!! - James King

The "Hideaway" Treehouse

Wow.....Wow....and just Wow !
What a jewel in the crown at Pickwell Manor.
Everything you require is provided at 5 * standard, and very tastefully done.
Standing out on the decking at night, counting stars whilst roasting chestnuts on the BBQ it was a fantastic way to spend our wedding anniversary, and get some 'us' time.
The Tree house is warm, cosy and relaxing, and watching the squirrel's and pheasants going about their lives at close proximity was lovely. - Gary E.

Amazing Pickwell

We have just returned from a long weekend at pickwell. We used to holiday there as children. We were not disappointed! We had a wonderful stay. We stayed in Bliss which was beautiful. 
Our children absolutely loved the games room. There was so much to choose from.
The owners have done an amazing job in making Pickwell a truly remarkable place to stay. 
We will definitely be back! - Barry

We will return

The Manor House has been completely renovated to a beautiful standard. We took our grandchildren 5 and 7 and they loved it. They were invited to join other children to feed the rabbits and hens. They returned with an egg each which we cooked for their breakfast!! The views are spectacular and the setting is safe, secure and very tranquil. We will return. - Gill

An amazing holiday

We found Pickwell Manor after a Google search. It looked amazing and we were not disappointed!! We were all tired when we arrived after a long, difficult journey, but we were met by Holly’s smiling, welcoming face and our lovely holiday started. I had contacted Holly during our journey to explain we were going to be much later than planned and she was more than accommodating, reminding me that there was chocolate cake and wine (locally made) waiting our arrival!
We stayed in Liberty, which was just perfect for us (my husband and I together with our two children, 7 & 9). Really clean, tidy, well equipped and homely. It had everything we needed, but there was also the useful things cupboard downstairs, which came in handy.
The tourist info in the room and in the entrance was great, as were the photos to direct us on the walk to the beach (perfect for evening s’mores on the beach).
Having the rabbits, chickens and pigs at Pickwell was brilliant. My girls loves seeing them each day and feeding them. The fact that George and Ham left for slaughter during our stay was a good thing (for us, not them). It brought up topics of conversation (how it all happens, what is humane, etc) which would probably not have otherwise been discussed just yet. 
Our children loved the facilities; the games room, the treasure hunt, pirate island, croquet, tennis...
Having a surf store full of equipment to borrow was brilliant too, as there were wet suits for both our girls! 
The laundry was well equipped too, along with it’s award winning view. 
We all loved the cream tea and the drift wood key ring making.
Having all these things just included in the stay makes the whole thing very homely. Having Holly and Ben’s family around added to this feel. 
It was a great location for our two week stay; good for both Putsborough and Croyde beaches. 
We didn’t want to leave and would all love to return!!
