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.

        1. You can have a print, I’ll send you the high res file of any pic you want. Dunno if you have it over there but theres an ap for free prints where you order them from your phone, of course they’re only postcard size but you can order bigger for not much money. I think you can have 45 free ones a month.
