Autumn at The Treehouse

Posted on 25-10-2018 by in Uncategorised

After an amazing summer, autumn has well and truly crept up on us! It’s chilly in the mornings and slowly the leaves are changing colour. Can you think of anywhere better to enjoy it than in a luxury treehouse sitting just on the edge of Leicestershire and Northants?

When you’re not snuggled up in a king-sized bed by the fire or relaxing watching your favourite movie with a glass of wine why not venture out to enjoy your picturesque surroundings.

We’ve put together a range of nearby walking routes for you to enjoy (pubs, bars & cafe’s included!)

Marston Trussell 

If you don’t fancy an extra long walk why not wander towards Northamptonshire and make your way to the nearby village of Marston Trussell. You can either turn back on yourself for a 3.5 mile walk or go round full circle for 4.5 miles. Definitely enough time out and about to deserve a relaxing bubble bath back at The Treehouse.

3.5 miles – From Hothorpe Hall to Marston Trussell village and back via same road

Estimated walking time: Just over 1 hour

4.5 miles – From Hothorpe Hall to Marston Trussell village and back (circular route)

Estimated walking time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Foxton Locks

You could also head for Foxton Locks, the longest set of staircase locks in Britain! While you’re there treat yourself to a drink at the ‘Foxton Locks Inn’ or the recently opened ‘G & Tea leaf’ for a cocktail or two!

4.5 miles – From Hothorpe Hall along canal towpath to Foxton Locks

Estimated walking time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Hothorpe Hills, Sibbertoft, Mount Pleasant & Marston Trussell

If you’re looking for a bit of a longer walk you can explore surrounding villages and go full circle back to The Treehouse. With pubs, cafes and bars on route you could always break it up with a few well-deserved stops.
