Perfect for couples or families and four-legged friends, Sleepy Owl Devon promises to spirit you well away from the hectic rush of everyday life.

Nestled amongst 20 acres of picture-perfect countryside, just below the Hartland Peninsula and part of the North Devon Biosphere Reserve, are two sumptuous treehouses and an expertly-converted cowshed.

Not only was each retreat exquisitely hand-crafted by Devon craftsmen, using local resources, but they’ve also been filled to the brim with luxury. Think al fresco pizza ovens, indoor cinema projectors, wood burners and a choice of opulent bathing inside, or under a softly-twinkling blanket of stars.

With a choice of gorgeous gold roll-top bathtub by your bed and terrace bath under the stars, as well as private scenic courtyard – complete with a wood-fired hot-tub – Nest Treehouse is the epitome of holiday indulgence. Relax in the hammock with a good book and let nature’s soundtrack carry your senses away in, before enjoying a snuggly movie night-in together in the four poster bed.

If you’ve brought the kids along, Nest’s cleverly-designed treehouse-within-a-treehouse features bunk beds and colour-changing lights… ideal for little adventurers!

For romantic couples looking to relax and reconnect, Hideout Treehouse is a boutique, Insta-worthy bolthole with design-led style, including a gleaming copper bathtub that can be effortlessly moved in or outdoors, whichever you prefer! If you want to bring the kiddies they will have their own room with bunk beds.

The very first treehouse of its kind in the UK, you can throw open the bifold doors and be at one with nature in an instant, sipping a chilled glass of bubbles on your private woodland terrace or enjoy your wood fired hot tub… bliss.

What the guests of Sleepy Owl Devon say

“Wow! What a hidden treasure. Thank you so much for an amazing stay. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to finish off our mini moon. The accommodation is phenomenal and there isn’t anything you haven’t thought of. We don’t normally return to the same place, but this is certainly an expection, we cannot wait to return.”

“This place is special. We have stayed in loads of cabins, treehouses and airbnb’s but this trumps them all. Every last detail has been thought of, the space created is so relaxing, calm and tranquil. We will be returning.”

“The Hideout Treehouse is absolutely out of this world. The attention for detail is surreal. Everything you want, this treehouse has. From a massive sofa, outdoor bath, a table big enough for board games, gorgeous hot tub & cake and Prosecco on arrival. Everything was spotlessly clean and immaculate. Had all the modern appliances that made the stay. I’ve stayed at a few treehouses and this was by far the best! It was spacious and so very cosy. We didn’t want to leave! I can’t properly put into words how amazing our stay was! 100% would go back!”
