Family accommodation can be pretty boring, which I think is why this round up of the best family treehouse accommodation in the UK is all the more exciting.
Treehouses have had a makeover in the past 10 years. They’re stylish, full of rugged charm and filled with cosy interiors.
But of course, treehouses are usually, well up a tree and let’s face it, bedtimes and heights are an interesting mix when it comes to kids! Not all treehouses are family-friendly, so I’ve sourced the best UK family treehouse accommodation for you.
Family Treehouse Holidays in the UK
1. Tilia and Quercus Treehouses at West Lexham
These family-friendly treehouses are two of a total of six treehouses on offer at West Lexham. These two sleep up to six people and as well as being ideal for families, are also dog-friendly.
Featuring an open-plan design, they have fully equipped kitchens, en-suites, a log stove and luxury linen. There’s no roughing it here – just stylish, exciting family-fun.
In the grounds you’ll find a heated pool (May to October), rowing boats and a tennis court. You’ll find lots of walks nearby and the beach is only 25-minutes away. It’s perfect!
You can find out more about Tilia and Quercus here. There’s a minimum stay of 2-nights on most dates and you can expect to pay from around £630 for 2 nights – split between 6 people that’s really quite affordable.
2. Sky Den in Northumberland
If you like contemporary, quirky places to stay then this is one for you. This family-friendly treehouse redefines any ideas you have about treehouses.
Featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, it has a roof that can be completely opened up (in good weather) to look out up to the gold tier Northumberland Dark Skies. Housed in England’s largest forest, there are many woodland trails to enjoy and squirrels to spot.
Sleeping up to two children, Sky Den starts from £165 per night (though there’s usually a 2-night minimum). This one gets booked up months in advance so you’ll need to think ahead. You can find out more here.

3. The Roost Treehouse in the Isle of Wight
You’ll feel like you’ve left the country, without having to wonder too far when you stay in this lovely treehouse. The woods date back to at least a century ago, when Queen Victoria used to ride in this area.
The treehouse is very traditional and has that Scandi vibe going on. Accessible by wooden steps, it’s not too high up, though if you are worried about little ones you could opt for the Shepherd’s Hideaway instead. It’s at a much lower height.
There’s kayaking, cycling and surfing to name a few of many activities in the nearby area.
You can find out more about The Roost here. Prices from around £280 for two nights.
4. Treetops Treehouse in Devon
Treetops Treehouse is more like a manor house on stilts – it’s beautiful! The woodland and river views are incredible.
Suitable for up to two children, this treehouse offers all the luxuries (hello copper bath!), with all the excitement that glamping brings.
Prices start from £235 per night. You can find out more here.

6. Copse Camp in Denbighshire
This treehouse is probably more in-keeping with what you’d imagine one to look like. Although it’s a bit more traditional, it does come with a hot tub for mum and dad, so it does bring the wow factor.
It also brings heaps of character, with Beano magazine wallpaper and hessian potato sack cushions and blinds. The luxury is balanced out with the finest crisp bed linen and fluffy towels.
Expect to pay around £125 per night. Children over the age of 5 years old are welcome and you can find out more here.
7. Bagthorpe Treehouse in Norfolk
Comprising one king-size bed and two single bunks this family-friendly treehouse is suitable for children aged 5 and older. It is mostly open-plan, but thankfully the main bed has curtains that draw round it for a bit of privacy (though does privacy even exist when you have kids?!).
Nearby, you can spot seals on the coast, enjoy plenty of walking routes and watch the fishing boats. Or, you could make the most of the copper bath!
Prices start from £220 per night and you can find out more here.

This design treehouse is a modern spot that’s perfect for small families. There’s one king-size bed on a mezzanine level and one pull-out sofa that can transform into a sleeping bunk for older children.
There’s also a gorgeous bath on the terrace, so you’d need to rope some friends or family into staying nearby so you could enjoy it without any distraction.
Prices start from £145 per night. You can find out more here.
