Top ChoiceLodging in PowysLiving Room Treehouses
Wonderfully designed, these six cosy, rustic-glam tree houses blend organically into an enchanted forest off the A470. You're as close to nature as can be (up a tree!), yet the beds are luxurious, insulation and wood-burning stoves keep you warm all year, and the seclusion is glorious (all houses are set generously apart). Arrival days are Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. There's an organic farm shop on site, woodlands and pasture to roam (the latter nibbled by a rare herd of Celtic Soay sheep), and star-gazing platforms and outdoor hot tubs for fresh air. It may sound hackneyed, but these electricity-free tree houses really do make for perfect romantic getaways (as long as your sweetie loves the great outdoors). A favourite is Gwdy Hw (pronounced 'goody-hoo'), but Bryn Meurig, lower to the ground, is the best choice for families. The next project for Living Room is a 'tree hotel'.
