Beautiful setting, relaxed and intimate wedding

My husband and I married in September 2022 - the weather was beautiful but nothing topped the beauty of the venue and setting. We married in the Trawscwm Treehouse. The Squirrels Nest team helped us from the start by sending through a booklet with local make-up artists, florists, and photographers. We opted to use our own decorations which the team were happy about. We used Sabina Kinghorn for our photography; she's photographed a few times at Squirrels Nest so she knows it well. The Squirrels Nest team organised food platters for the day - they were huge, and incredible, we ate them for the next 4 days! The team also linked us up with the local council to organise the registrar and the team were on hand on the day to meet the registrar walk them over, bring the food and drinks, and serve. We had 6 guests who were comfortably seated in the treehouse. We would highly recommend this venue for a chilled, relaxed, intimate wedding; it honestly made for the most memorable and beautiful day of our lives.

Stunning !! Couldn’t of asked for more

Our wedding was amazing. Everyone was so helpful down to the tiniest of details. They really went out of the way for us and I cannot thank camilla enough for running about for last minute things for us.
The treehouse was so stunning calm and relaxing. The meal was absolutely delicious.
So glad I found squirrels nest as I couldn’t have imagined a better place. Also the wedding pictures look unreal with the amazing backgrounds

A rural & romantic adventure!

26th April 2022
Our wedding was exactly what we dreamed of. A relaxing, romantic yet unusual way to tie the knot.
We were married on the balcony of the Cadwollen Treehouse, with the sun shining, lambs bleating and birds tweeting.
Jazz and Emily at Squirrels Nest were fantastic at organising and ensuring a smooth and stress-free stay. Our wedding package was catered specifically for us. We gorged on a delicious hamper full of Welsh treats; had a local personal chef cook us a scrumptious vegetarian delight (The Welsh Kitchen) as well as a delightful couples massage when we arrived.
The venue was serene, beautiful and private. Stargazing in the hot tub was a true highlight.
We will be certainly re-visit and have recommended Squirrels Nest and their treehouses to anyone who will listen.

Absolutely incredible venue and staff. Nothing was too much and complete flexibility with last minute changes. Cannot complain or ask for any more! We had a perfect elopement. Camilia and Laura went above and beyond for all arrangements and special touches. Lots of local recommendations and knowledge. John’s treehouses are complete works of art. Stunning venue, we’ve already booked to come back for our anniversary. 💗

Perfect Elopement

We had a perfect elopement at Squirrels Nest. The staff were so accomodating and we were able to create a bespoke day that suited us perfectly. We arrived and had a couples massage by the wonderful Aggie, had a fridge full with a huge breakfast hamper enjoyed an evening relaxing in the hot tub. On our wedding day we woke up in the middle of a storm, with a slight power cut which was resolved really quickly by the ladies there, they made sure the registrar and photographer were greeted and brought to the treehouse on time. Despite the rain the ceremony was perfect and we managed to get out and about in the gorgeous scenery for some photos afterwards. We couldnt have our afternoon tea picnic outside as planned but we used the gorgeous hamper inside and had lots of candles to create a really romantic time. It really was perfect despite the hiccups and it wouldnt have gone as smoothly as it did without the hard work and dedication from Camilla and Laura. 100% recommend!!
