Alnwick Garden ~ April 2018~ Part 5 ~ bits and bobs


The tree house at Alnwick Gardens is one of the biggest I know of (not that I know of many, except that mad one in Tenessee) and is made from  sustainably sourced Canadian cedar, Scandinavian redwood and English and Scots pine. It has a well-reviewed restaurant doing local fare, and has wobbly rope bridges to cross. There’s also a lunch place called The Potting Shed in the top part of the tree house.

Tree House, or Village really.

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea In a beautiful pea-green boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five-pound note.

  3. I think it’s just the bare trees, but the treehouse looks just a little creepy to me. I love the owl and the pussycat, though.
