17 incredible treehouse stays in the UK

Treehouse Stay Somerset

Thanks to the global pandemic, the humble UK staycation is making an almighty comeback. For many of us, we’ve spent the last year tied to a laptop screen with little to see or do outside of our homes. So what better way to enjoy a break from it all than with a UK treehouse stay that gets us back to nature.

When you think of a treehouse, you may be picturing a botched up wooden box precariously perched up a tree. But there are some truly astounding treehouses across the UK, many of which are genuine architectural wonders. Here I share the best UK treehouse retreats, from dog-friendly and family-friendly treehouses to the ultimate luxury. 

I do need to add a caveat that many of these treehouses are already booked up over the summer. Unfortunately, it’s extremely difficult to find anything with good availability. However, I strongly recommend keeping an eye on the booking calendars for any which tickle your fancy. This is how I managed to book the Bower Treehouse – they had a cancellation and I snuck in just in time. 

Unique treehouse stays

Bower Treehouse

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw all the Bower Treehouse spam! This is one I can personally recommend following the most amazing recent stay. On arrival, you pick up your lanterns before heading into the woodlands and across a bridge which takes you over a trickling stream to the treehouse.

It’s a back-to-nature treehouse stay but with a touch of luxury. Lie back in the king-sized bed carved from stag oak and stargaze through the skylight. Whip up a meal in the copper and brass kitchen, or fire up the BBQ for an alfresco treat. A particular highlight was soaking in the outdoor bath at night, with a glass of Champagne and a light trickle of rain. This place is truly dreamy.

Highlights:

  • Outdoor bathtub
  • Skylights for stargazing
  • Fire pit & BBQ

Where: Bruton, Somerset
