Sleep in a treehouse

We say
Get away from it all ... commune with nature ... rediscover the joy of childhood adventures. This collection of stylish, cleverly-built treehouses offers a thrilling experience in the beautiful countryside of England and Wales. Some are rough and ready, others are surprisingly well furnished. But don't expect to be watching Netflix ... you can gaze at the night sky instead.

Our goal is to curate the most inspiring places to stay in the great outdoors and so inspire our guests to connect with nature. We’re very picky – only the best quality places which offer an authentic experience make the grade.

  • Unique experience
  • Remote locations
  • Sleep 2-6

Options include shepherd’s huts, yurts, geodomes, gypsy caravans and tipis. Arguably, though, it’s the idea of staying in a treehouse which most conjures up memories of childhood fun and freedom amongst friends and family.

In England, Wales and Scotland, we’ve found some magical treehouses sleeping between 2 and 6 people. Not only are they great places to stay, they are also incredible feats of construction.

Here are a few examples to inspire you. Located six miles from Bath, tucked away in woodland on the edge of a sleepy village, Old Mill Treehouse sleeps two plus one child. Rufus’s Roost is a playful two-storey wooden castle on the North Yorkshire Moors which sleeps up to six; there’s even a pizza oven in the garden.

In the heart of Kielder in Northumberland, Sky Den is nothing short of extraordinary – in fact, the architectural masterpiece was featured on George Clark’s Amazing Spaces on Channel 4. ┬áBack to basics, Lofty is one of four stunning off-grid treehouses in the Welsh mountains.
