Welcome to 'Nesting'
An exciting and imaginative multi-million pound development of quality treehouses and lodges is planned for Robin Hill Country Park.
Referred to as ‘Nesting’, the proposal includes :28 timber framed lodges, 22 treehouse structures raised up in the tree canopies and an area for 40 glamping tents, all designed to nestle into the natural landscape of the park and provide unique visitor accommodation.
The planning application has now been submitted by Vectis Ventures (which owns Robin Hill) and can be viewed at : https://iwight.com/planning/AppDetails3.aspx?frmId=30814
Nesting’ comprises of two phases of development, to be sited in areas of Robin Hill which are currently unused or in need of regeneration :
- Phase One - 13 treehouse structures raised up in the tree canopies, 11 timber framed lodges and 40 glamping tents for seasonal use
- Phase Two – 9 treehouse structures and 17 timber framed lodges
With tourism being the main industry on the Island, ‘Nesting’ is a further development of Robin Hill which is designed to extend the tourism season.
Our objectives are :
- To develop a sustainable year-round tourism destination
- To help change the very nature of seasonal employment and create more year-round careers within the tourism sector for our young people
- To create a high quality development that is sympathetic and in keeping with the natural environment in which Robin Hill sits
Blue Forest, regarded as the world’s leading tree house consultants and renowned for designing buildings that reflect the environment in which they are built, has been commissioned on the project.
International architectural practice, Tate Harmer, who specialise in healthy sustainable designs that work with nature, are producing the designs for ‘Nesting’, to ensure a sensitive design approach.
