No plans for the big day?
Whether you’re flying solo for the festive season or you simply crave some peace and tranquility for two as the year draws to a close, one magical Cork spot could be just the ticket.
Cottages for Couples has a range of cosy cabins and treehouses available to book in various locations around West Cork.
Nestled in the branches of spruce pines at Grove House, three of their properties are eco-friendly treehouses, where guests can kick back in luxury for a festive break like no other.
Ascend the tree trunk steps and you’ll find a dreamy little hideaway with a kitchen (oven, hob, fridge, sink, and microwave), a bathroom with a walk-in shower, constant hot water, and high-efficiency electric radiators.
The living, sleeping, and dining area is all open-plan and the double bed looks across to the roll-top bath.
There’s satellite TV and a DVD player for playing all those old Christmas movies, broadband, and a Bluetooth speaker so you can fill the air with the strains of Christmassy jazz as you lounge in the tub.
But there’s more; through the French doors, a large deck overlooks the West Cork countryside. Here you’ll find your own, private two-person Canadian hot tub to enjoy both day and night.
“It has a magical quality and there’s something wonderful about being up in the trees at one with nature.” say the hosts.
And word has it there may still be one available from Christmas Eve this year. Interested? You’ll find prices and booking information here.
