Gently nestled in a curve of the River Severn, Elmore Court Estate is home to 250 rich, magical acres of nature-loving land.
A portion of the estate has been dedicated to rewilding, meaning it breathes and buzzes with pure, unfettered life. Here, cared-for animals can roam freely without the artificial potions – such as chemicals and fertilisers – that would otherwise constrain the land’s natural development.
It’s also here that you’ll discover six bespoke, contemporary tree-cabins, designed for couples and small families to immerse their senses fully in the natural world. Master-crafted from sustainable materials, each aspect of the design and build process involved a recognised expert in their field, including award-winning Cotswold architects, an artisan furniture-maker, and a world-renowned interior designer.
Exclusive boardwalks will help you make your descent into the tranquil woods, where time slows and life naturally calms. Your chosen treehouse will be elevated high in the canopy, overlooking wild, lush wetlands that teem with activity.
Each cabin carries its own sense of style and name: the latter inspired by the guiding spirits of the medicine wheel used by generations of Native American tribes for health and healing, encouraging a sense of reflection in nature.
Adder, Wildcat, and Kite each sleep up to three guests – two adults and an extra little one! – with help from a handmade superking bed and a ‘secret’ extra single. L-shaped cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows, you can prepare hearty meals in the sheltered al fresco kitchen, or take a sumptuous bubble-soak in the tin-and-copper bath you’ll discover on the generous deck.
If you’ve brought more than one little guest, or you’ve got friends in tow, Earth and Sky are larger treehouses that, along with that handmade superking bed and hidden single, also feature a daybed. Savour borderline-safari views from Earth’s panoramic windows, while Sky, tucked away amongst the laurels, showcases the rewilding wetlands to absolute perfection.Keep reading
