Staying at a treehouse is the perfect way to reconnect with your inner child, but it’s also an experience in luxury and a great way to get back to nature. Treehouses are playful and fun, peaceful and relaxing, and they offer accommodation that gives you the freedom to explore an area while providing everything you need right there.
The UK has witnessed a growing number of incredible treehouse stays appearing on farms, in woodland, and even on the grounds of stately homes. Some are luxury lodges with hot tubs and private dining, some are rural and a bit more “back to basics,” but all of them are quirky and interesting places to stay. In no particular order, here are 10 treehouses you can stay in, in the UK.
1. Will’s Treehouse, Winchcombe Farm, Warwickshire
A short walk from the village of Tysoe, in beautiful Shakespeare country of Warwickshire, you can stay in Will’s Treehouse at Winchcombe Farm. This treehouse sleeps four and has a private hot tub, a hammock, pizza oven, barbecue, and some lovely tasty treats in the welcome pack. You can also arrange private dining to be delivered to your treehouse by local chefs at Bramble Dining. The farm is serene and lovely in the summer, but it’s also a great place to visit in fall, when a dip in the hot tub beneath the stars is so relaxing.
2. The Treehouses at Lanrick, Perthshire, Scotland
The site at Lanrick, Scotland, has five stunning and sustainable treehouses located in dense woodland on the banks of the River Teith in Perthshire. Riverside and woodland walks, biking, picnics, and salmon and trout fishing are all on the doorstep, yet this peaceful off-grid retreat is only an hour from both Glasgow and Edinburgh. The treehouses are powered by air source heat pumps for heating and hot water, while there are cozy log-burning stoves for the chillier seasons. Every treehouse has a terrace with BBQ and outside copper bath and sleeps two adults in a super king bed with a double sofa bed. While the surrounding woodlands offer peace and quiet, just 4 miles away is Trossachs National Park, where guests can try wild swimming and boat trips on Loch Lomond. Doune Castle, Stirling Castle, Blair Drummond Safari Park, and Deanston Distillery are all within 10 miles, and the world-renowned Gleneagles and Loch Lomond golf courses are also a short distance away.
Pro Tip: You’ll have to be happy to do without your phone here, as there is no Wi-Fi signal and very poor mobile signal. This one is a real off-grid experience.
3. Woodland Chase, Northumberland
Up a rickety wooden staircase, decorated with sparkling fairy lights at night time, you’ll find the Woodland Chase Treehouse. This is a decedent, plush treehouse ideal for a romantic getaway for couples or just somewhere to completely chill out. The treehouse features an array of luxury details, like Egyptian cotton sheets, and it has a distinct woodland feel with a carved wooden deer head above the bed and carved wooden antlers everywhere you look. The wood-fired hot tub is pure bliss and the little touches like the wine bottle and glasses holder by the tub make this a treehouse stay you’ll never forget. Situated in Northumberland, between the historic northeast coast and the Northumberland National Park, this is a getaway with lots to explore nearby.
4. The Treehouse, Halse, Somerset
The owners of The Treehouse at Halse prove that it’s possible to combine adventure and luxury. Fall asleep gazing at the Somerset skies, listening to the gentle rustle of leaves on the cedar shingle roof in this 5-star self-catering property, which sleeps four people in two bedrooms. The property boasts a private garden with an outdoor cedar hot tub. The beautiful custom octagonal building is close to Exmoor National Park and the Quantock Hills, within walking distance of Halse village and the New Inn pub, and only a short drive from beautiful Somerset and North Devon beaches.
5. Treeopia, Tenbury Wells
Treeopia is a woodland retreat with two cozy treehouses on-site. Each treehouse, Vivianna and Eathelin, has a private hot tub and interiors that offer a real home-from-home feel. This is luxury, but with familiarity. Eathelin has a real quirkiness to it, with church-style doors and windows, a salt rock bathroom sink, and a fire pit outside for toasting marshmallows beneath the stars. Private chef dinner deliveries are available, as are some interesting extras you can book for your stay – indulge in some foraging and survival skills and then book yourself a Thai massage.
Pro Tip: This is an adults-only retreat. Children under 14 years are not allowed in bookings, and neither are pets. This keeps the retreat quiet and serene.
6. Chewton Glen, Hampshire
Sleep with your head in the sky, surrounded by ancient woodland in the heart of the tranquil New Forest. Chewton Glen, a modern country house, is set within 130 acres of stunning Hampshire woodland and is within walking distance of the sea. Suspended 35 feet above ground, the treehouses offer sweeping canopy views, a spacious terrace, and a private hot tub. Spend summer nights stargazing from the terrace and days relaxing in the spa, exploring the south coast, or taking long walks in the New Forest. For couples looking for something more active, the hotel has a 9-hole golf course, tennis courts, and an array of cookery classes to choose from. You can also take to the seas and charter one of their yachts.
7. By The Wye, Hay On Wye, Wales
The treehouses at By the Wye, Hay On Wye, Wales, are very rustic. If you like to feel like you’re staying in the heart of the forest, these incredible treehouses are perfect. The beds look like they’ve been put together using the branches of the trees that grow on your doorstep – and they probably have! You’ll truly feel like you’re getting back to nature here; all energy is off-grid and runs from solar energy provided on site. You can try some wild cooking out on the firepit grill and enjoy the gentle river rolling by.
Pro Tip: Hay On Wye is the book capital of the UK and the perfect place for browsing book stores and discovering new authors. The annual literature festival, The Hay Festival, sees famous authors and writers from all over the world attend to give talks and lead workshops.
8. Dazzle Treehouse, Mallison’s Woodland Retreat, Dorset
Not far from the Jurassic coast of Lyme Regis in Dorset is a woodland hideaway with some very distinctive treehouses on site. Dazzle Treehouse at Mallison’s Woodland Retreat appears quite futuristic from the outside. It was inspired by the patterns used to conceal World War I ships, but the effect is more of a construction that sits alongside the forest rather than blends into it. I love how unusual this is, and I don’t think I’ve seen any other treehouse in the UK quite like it. The veranda of the treehouse has everything you need for the outdoors feel, including hammock, hot tub, pizza oven, and fire pit, and it also has a kind of an adventure playground feel to it, making this a treehouse of many different characters!
9. Eco Treehouse, Manor House Gardens, North Yorkshire
With its rustic yet luxurious interiors, log-fired terrace hot tub, and uninterrupted views through the tree canopy towards the North Yorkshire Moors, the Eco Treehouse at Manor House Gardens is a treehouse like no other. Inside, it blends rural character with contemporary comfort, with a log burner for winter days, a popcorn machine for movie nights, and a “Beasts, Birds and Bugs” log for monitoring the local wildlife. Outside, between the two turrets, there’s a fantastic veranda complete with dining furniture and a hot tub, not to mention some pretty sensational views. It sleeps six in three bedrooms and looks and feels like a fairytale castle!
10. The Treehouse On The Lake, Cornwall
The Treehouse on the Lake is perfectly placed, geographically, for exploring both north and south Cornwall, and it sits right next to a peaceful lake. Once inside, it feels more like you’re staying in a villa than a treehouse, and there’s nothing rustic about this one. So, if you like to feel like your feet are on the ground, this is the perfect treehouse. Out on the veranda, which wraps around the treehouse, is a copper bathtub where you can enjoy a relaxing soak beneath the stars.
