Luxury in the sky with a treehouse hotel in the New Forest


Spend a peaceful night sleeping beneath the stars within a canopy of trees at Hotel Chewton Glen. There are four types of treehouse available: studio suites, loft suites, hideaway suites and the Yews – the newest and most private option, tucked away in its own glade. Inside the Yews, 35 feet off the ground, you’ll find rustic interiors defined by an earthy palette of olive greens and charcoal greys. Relax on a chaise lounge beneath a tartan blanket before a crackling wood-burning fire, or watch the sun set from your balcony with a crisp glass of prosecco. Carry your bubbles into your bathroom and soak in the freestanding bath while taking in views of the leafy forest.

Dinner-time can be as social or secluded as you like. A breakfast hamper delivered daily gets mornings off to the right start with warm, flaky pastries, refreshing orange juice and soft bread with preserves. There’s also a kitchen in the treehouse, where you can whip up your own romantic creations like chocolate fondue or make the most of local produce, such as rich venison or creamy Winchester cheese. In the elegant Dining Room restaurant, bold pops of chartreuse mirror the botanical beauty outside. None of the ingredients on offer have travelled more than 100 yards from the hotel’s kitchen garden, and are used to create delectable dishes like tender asparagus served with crispy scotch eggs, complete with runny yolks.

If you’re craving some pampering, make your final stop the award-winning spa. Take a dip in the indoor pool, which has been inspired by a traditional Roman bathhouse with its stately columns and blue sky ceiling fresco. Let your worries melt away in the outdoor hot tub or choose from one of 50 treatments in one of the candlelit couple’s therapy rooms; indulge in a bespoke warm oil massage or Oskia glow facial. Alternatively, why not relax in the serene, lightly scented aromatherapy sauna?

A Scandi-style lavish treehouse hotel in the Cotswolds


The Fish Hotel takes the ideal of a rustic country retreat and upgrades it with minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired interiors and luxurious features like wood-burning stoves and wraparound decking. Among its selection of houses and huts dotted against a hillside, you’ll find secret treetop havens that look like they’ve sprung straight out of a children’s story – all rustic rope bridges and curved shapes. There are three to choose from, all of which offer spectacular views through the leafy canopy. Oak stretches from floor to ceiling for a cosy and inviting feel, while the decoration keeps things pared back with industrial-inspired copper light features and a palette of taupes and greys.

It’s the luxurious little details that make all of the difference at the Fish Hotel treehouses. Underfloor heating is cosy for chilly toes, especially after a long walk, while Nespresso machines make getting up in the morning just a touch easier. Your bathroom, flooded with natural light, is covered in stylish grey tiles with the contrast of wooden cabinets and ornate metal mirrors creating an eclectic feel. Wrap up in an ultra-soft bathrobe before slipping into your outdoor hot tub, lit by copper lanterns, with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc from the mini bar to watch the sunset over the forest.

Spend your mornings on the outdoor decking, watching warm light filter through the trees and sipping coffee while the birds sing. Take a treetop adventure on the swinging rope bridges, or journey 25 minutes to the lively area of Stratford for a peaceful row along the River Avon, followed by an al-fresco lunch on the scenic banks. Closer to your treetop home, the hotel’s informal restaurant, Hook, showcases the local seafood. Here, you can treat your tastebuds with dishes like fragrant crab risotto, spiced with ginger and balanced with lime leaf or delicate, hand-dived scallops with peppery fennel sausage.

A luxury treehouse hotel in Scotland near a historic tower


Nestled within the broad branches of a sycamore tree that’s more than 150 years old sits the largest treehouse in Europe. Inside, plenty of luxurious features await – your round living room is decorated with soft textures such as shag rugs and plushly upholstered sofas and armchairs, as well as whimsical woodland touches like rustic high-backed wooden chairs and a table carved straight from a tree trunk. Meanwhile, a circular bath, a fridge and a microwave mean you can be totally self-sufficient. The bedroom offers an unforgettable experience with its seven-foot rounded bed and a glass ceiling that allows you to watch the stars shimmer above your head. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a flicker of the fabled northern lights.

Make time in your itinerary to visit Ackergill Tower‘s restaurant, located in this historic property’s Great Hall – think wood-panelled walls and traditional trestle tables bathed in candlelight. Proceedings are given a distinctly Scottish theme by a Highland pipe band and local ingredients. Begin with fare such as delicate smoked salmon served with bold horseradish cream and fresh greens before moving onto tender striploin of beef with creamy potato fondant and a rich port jus. Round off your meal with a board of classic Scottish cheeses such as Dunsyre Blue and perhaps a wee dram.

Spend an afternoon exploring 15th-century Ackergill Tower and its 3,000 private acres that include intriguing woodlands. After a brisk coastal walk (just steps from the hotel) stop in at the Smuggler’s Inn, the hotel’s very own pub. Tartan wallpaper, a roaring fire and sumptuous leather armchairs create an intimate and cosy atmosphere that’s the ideal antidote for a chilly afternoon. Take the opportunity to sample some local beverages, from Pulteney whisky to Northern Light Ale, which is ripe for enjoying alongside the hearty Smuggler’s beef burger.

A lakeside treehouse retreat in lush Lancashire countryside


Escape to a lake at this selection of luxurious lodges and a 5-star treehouse perched on the banks of the placid Lake Cleveleymere. The relaxing tree-house haven is enveloped by an acre of majestic woodland in the heart of the lush Lancashire countryside. Take a trip out on the peaceful water of the lake with your own private boat – you can also use the hotel kayaks and pedal boats. On your return, take a short stroll back to your treehouse via the rustic rope bridge and unwind by soaking in the large, roll-top bath. Make the most of the evening and grill some salty halloumi and fresh prawns on the brick barbecue for an al-fresco dinner as the sun sets.

The treehouse interiors take their spectacular rural setting as inspiration: expect vivid splashes of green and plenty of natural wood, which makes for a warm and welcoming feel. Similarly, tree prints on cushions and curtains create a magical botanical ambience. Spend evenings exploring a menu of Italian, Chinese and British restaurants in the local market town of Garstang, which is 10 minute drive away. Or, savour a peaceful dinner at home in your treehouse by cooking up Lancashire favourites like satisfying hotpot or traditional black pudding – the bespoke Miele kitchen makes cooking a real pleasure. You’ll also be presented with thoughtful treats on arrival such as fresh eggs from the site’s chickens, prosecco and chocolate to start you off.

There are plenty of outdoor activities to try, too. In the daytime, you can explore the tree-house’s magical rural setting by taking winding woodland walks (don’t worry, there are wellies at the lodge in case of wet days) or hopping on to mountain bikes. There’s also a nine-hole mini golf course if you feel like getting competitive, and a ping pong table for after-dinner games. Embrace a camp-side atmosphere by toasting marshmallows over your own fire pit, and watching the smoke float up to the stars.
