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!
