Ten of the Best UK Treehouse Stays

6 March 2019

Who doesn’t love a treehouse? No matter how old you are, there’s something about living amongst the leaves that brings out everybody’s playful inner child.

Maybe it’s the joyous birdsong that greets you every morning, maybe it’s the prospect of a day of den-building in the woods, or maybe it’s that delicious feeling of leaving hectic everyday life well and truly behind.

The UK is chock-full of rural hotspots that make treehouse living a true fairytale pleasure. Think long, green stretches of farmland, magical ancient forest oaks, and acres of whispering tree-lined gardens.

Better still, there’s no need to rough it. We’ve hand-picked our Ten of the Best UK Treehouses not only to sprinkle some childhood magic, but also because they’re packed with creature comforts that make a holiday complete.

So ifyou’re ready for some fresh-air adventure, come and scale new heights right here!
