Having crossed the bridge to the island you approach from the south and get close to the tree house, but rather than approach directly along the boardwalk this sequence of pictures takes you around the circular path anti-clockwise so that you pass the cottage (eastern) side first.

It's not a tree house in the conventional sense, but its main supports are old trunks and branches of oak trees that grew on Hickling Marshes and had died rather than being cut as live wood.

Here we have what in a lounge would be called a three piece suite, two chairs and a small settee with a matching coffee table. It is the coffee table that stores the cushions which we get out when the tree house is in use - often for barbecues!
