It was awarded platinum – the highest grade possible – following an unannounced visit by a fully trained Loo of the Year Awards inspector.

Mark Brassell, director of The Alnwick Garden, said: “The Treehouse is a magical place and that means that the whole experience has to be reflective of that.

“There is nothing worse than visiting somewhere special and finding that the toilets are awful or that the soap has run out.”

Reflective of the surroundings, the walls have been designed to look like tree bark with a ceiling set with twinkling lights.

The disabled toilet has been designed with dramatic stone wall tiles, pale grey woodwork and a marble sink.

The idea behind the Loo of the Year Awards is to celebrate the provision of the best ‘away from home’ facilities at tourist sites around the country.
