Dave and Harvest Harris-Jones established Laverock Law Cottages and Glamping 11 years ago on a two-acre site at Lowick (England), after they had restored three semi-derelict cottages that they are now offering alongside a handcrafted shepherd’s hut made from local timber.
According to a report, as part of the business’s next phase of development, the couple is creating a heart-shaped treehouse in a secluded location on the property that will accommodate up to four guests and will be ready by the end of September.
A £25,500 Small Loan Fund investment secured through regional fund management firm NEL Fund Managers enables them to complete the fit-out of the treehouse’s interior, including a wood-burning stove, oak flooring, kitchen and bathroom, and locally-sourced artisan crockery.
Laverock Law Cottages and Glamping has been recognized with several regional and national awards for its dedication to sustainability, including golds in Visit England’s Sustainable Tourism Awards, the North East EnglandTourism Awards, and the Northumberland Tourism Awards.
The cottages, powered by renewable energy, all feature low-carbon heating, and hot water systems, while the wider site offers abundant wildlife habitats, wilding areas, and electric vehicle charging points, with bikes available to borrow to minimize car journeys in the local area.
