Luxury treehouses to welcome first guests at Ramside Hall Hotel
After months of building work, the hotel and spa in Carrville, on the outskirts of Durham city, is preparing to welcome guests to its striking treehouse rooms in its grounds.
The first two of the multi-million pound project are now open, with the third treehouse launching in February.
The state-of-the-art lodge named Peacock, built on stilts and with views over the hotel’s championship golf courses, was the first to opens its doors, with the second, Cuckoo, launched last weekend.
Each treehouse features three bedrooms which can be divided up and booked as a one bedroom studio or two bedrooms for smaller groups, or as the entire property which can sleep up to 12 by using a range of sofa beds.
Guests can enjoy private dining with food prepared by one of the hotel’s chefs and can also create packages allowing them to use Ramside’s other facilities including the spa and golf courses.
The treehouses are all individually themed, include free standing copper baths and have two outdoor hot tubs per house, so that even when split into two private residences each has access to their own tub.
Named after birds, Peacock has been inspired by lavish French décor, while Cuckoo has drawn inspiration from Alpine lodges. Woodpecker, which opens next month, has a more contemporary design aesthetic.
Guests get a continental breakfast delivered to their treehouse as part of the package, with a variety of add-on options including dining at the hotel and use of the spa facilities.
Ramside managing director, John Adamson, said: “This is something brand new, not just for the North East, but for the whole of the north.
“We’ve created luxurious, flexible accommodation which can be used for any occasion and configured to suit individual needs. They’re perfect for weddings, getaways, business meetings – in fact for any occasion.
“We believe we’ve created something really special and we can’t wait for our guests to see them.”
Prices start from £395 for a one bedroom studio and includes continental breakfast.
