A genuine treehouse, up a tree; unique, idyllic and perfectly luxurious treehouse hideaway in Devon's beautiful Blackdown Hills.
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

The Nest offers the chance for a lucky pair of lovebirds to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of an ancient broadleaved wood, fully suspended nine metres high in a mature English oak tree. After a short meander through the surrounding woodland, you’ll find yourself at the foot of a spiral staircase, leading to this very special holiday home. Before you climb it though, take a moment to marvel at this incredible treehouse from the ground. Constructed in timber, clad in cedar and encircling the majestic oak, you’ll soon see why guests have called The Nest ‘a little piece of paradise’!

At the top of your fairy-tale stairway is a charming balcony, from which two doors lead into the peaceful Nest. The first enters into the luxurious living area, where you’ll discover everything you need to sleep, cook, relax and dine together. Perfectly finished in every respect – from the light and airy décor, to the wooden floor, and even to the warm and cosy touches throughout – this beautiful space exudes a wonderfully welcoming rustic feel.

So what can you find in your little treetop hideaway? Well, all the touches of home you might expect if you were on the ground! Every feature has been included for your comfort: a sofa, a television and DVD player, a cute dining table for two, a double bed – and that’s just the start. The Nest also features a perfectly proportioned kitchen area with a two-burner gas hob, a microwave and grill, a fridge-freezer, a sink and drainer and a whistling kettle for a proper cup of tea. Curl up with a book or play a board game to while away your evenings, while mains electricity and a toasty wood-burning stove mean you won’t miss out on any of your creature comforts.

In this secluded bolthole, you may even forget you’re holidaying in a tree canopy at all, until you spy the unique additions that remind you of your surroundings (the curtain pole branch and the beams made from tree boughs are exceptional). And then, of course, one glance out of the window and you’re looking through the branches of neighbouring trees! Rest assured, though – yours is the only treehouse in the woodland. How’s that for perfect privacy?

Next door, you’ll find the fully equipped bathroom (complete with quirky wood-themed flooring), accessed through the second door from the balcony. The gas-heated shower provides endless hot water, while the flushing loo and cute corner basin add even more luxury to your treehouse home.

The balcony is a sublime space to breathe in the woodland scent, listen to the sounds around you, and fully appreciate all nature has to offer. Take your morning coffee or your evening tipple at the table and chairs for two, or dine alfresco for the ultimate romantic meal.

It’s easy to see why guests to The Nest could spend their whole stay cosseted in this treehouse haven. However, you’ll find many more Devonshire delights in easy reach if the urge takes you. The Blackdown Hills are magnificent to discover on foot, on horseback, or even in a glider, while foodies can get their fill of exquisite local produce at the variety of pubs and restaurants you’ll find in the area. Exeter and Taunton are in easy reach, each with cinemas, theatres, and shops, while the Jurassic Coast is only a short drive away for paddling, sunbathing and fossil hunting.

What the guests of The Nest Treehouse say

“We booked this stay as it is something we’ve always wanted to do and it certainly didn’t disappoint! The setting is incredible and the treehouse itself is extremely comfortable. Would recommend a trip to Beer and venturing into Honiton and eating at the Holt. Thank you for an incredible stay and hope to be back soon!”

“We have had a wonderful time here in ‘The Nest’. It is beautifully done and has all you need. It is a welcoming little place. There is plenty of bird life and we even found a couple of fossils in the gravel path. The area is also lovely and brought back memories from years ago, especially the cream teas. We try to go away somewhere different at this time of year and ‘The Nest’ has not disappointed us.  Absolutely excellent, thank you.”

“A warm welcome was received on arrival. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The Nest was just what we needed with all the home comforts, yet getting back to nature. Lots of wild life seen. A wonderful relaxing time, would come again. Thank you.”
