Filming a £150,000 Tree House in Dorset
Book This Fabulous, Luxury Tree-house for Holidays and Getaways in Dorset (as seen on Channel 4/George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces)
I recently had the pleasure of filming Guy Mallinson and his incredible Woodman’s tree house in Holditch, West Dorset. Here is a short video I made just to give Barcroft TV an idea of what I had filmed prior to uploading all the footage (still a work in progress):
It had been an idea in Guy’s head for many years and in 2016, he finally achieved his dream. The tree house is built around (but not touching in order to preserve the Eco-system) a large veteran Oak tree. It offers a complete “enchanted woodland utopia” coupled with life’s modern luxuries.
When you first enter the forest, you are met with what I could only describe as a Robin Hood style aura about the place. There is a wood workshop nestled near the entrance. Then you have a large kitchen and dining area for guests to use. Occasionally you will come across various campers, woodworkers and staff wondering about doing their thing.
Also scattered about the forest, are toilets, showers and a number of guest tents and yurts. All offering a truly "back-to-nature" glamping experience with the opportunity to attend a woodworking workshop.
I was filming for the huge YouTube Channel from Barcroft TV who have close to 2.5 million subscribers and over 2 billion views!
I had to interview Guy with around 24 questions to camera. Plus I had to shoot the interior or the tree-house with all it’s wonderful features as well as the external woodland with some aerial footage.
The tree-house was such an ambitious project, it even made an episode of Channel 4’s Amazing Spaces with George Clarke.
Here is the full video made by Barcroft for their YouTube channel:
If you would like to treat your other half to a luxurious, back to nature retreat for a weekend or longer, or perhaps attend a wood workshop in style, please check out their website for details below. You won’t regret it, this is a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing place!
