Turn off a narrow Devon lane and you’ll find yourself in a peaceful plot, with ancient woodland, a fruit orchard and fields turned over to wild meadow. You’ll also find two scandi-style treehouses, built with local wood and low impact materials that blend into the greenery. Each has a neat, cleverly designed interior with a mezzanine bed, topped by a window to the stars and the bobbing branches overhead. There’s a telly, wi-fi, games to play and music to listen to, but the view from the sofa will probably be enough to absorb you. A glass-fronted bathroom and outside tub ensures you never have to take your eyes off that lush horizon. It’s a magic place to pause.
There’s escaping to the countryside, and then there is sleeping overnight in the literal middle of the woods with fluttering leaves and bobbing branches as your only company. Luckily, you can achieve that kind of rural vibe in the UK without having to actually pitch a tent. In fact, you don’t need to rough it at all.
The UK has gone big on chilled out, countryside escapes – leftfield accommodation options for those who really want to go green – including this rather magnificent selection of treehouses.
Whether you’re hoping to live out your childhood fantasies with a rustic treetop adventure, or fancy soaking in a tub on the private decking of your super-luxe cabin on stilts, we have a treehouse for you. Here are some of the best UK treehouses you can book right now.
