Have you ever stayed in a treehouse? I’m not talking about when you were child; I mean the beautifully stylish ones that seem to be popping up all over the place. Designer rustic charm, with rugged appeal and cosy interiors.
I’ve been tasked with finding some cool and exciting rural accommodation in the UK. One of my lovely friends is getting married next year and wants to go on a mini-moon straight after the wedding, saving the big honeymoon for later in the year. She’s obviously my kinda girl – two bits of travel out of one occasion. Oh yes.
I thought I’d start with the exciting treehouse option as a starter and showcase my favourite finds.
♥ Bensfield TreeHouse (Sussex)
Forget a driveway, this bad boy has its own 24 metre private rope bridge. Good luck to any grooms carrying their bride over the threshold, but what a giggle it would be trying. The room looks really different with a tree trunk going through the middle of the room.
If it is accessible and countryside you’re after, this might be the one for you. The views look lovely and the nearest mainline station is only one hour from London Charing Cross. Short breaks from £299.
♥ Harptree Treehouse (Somerset)
An award winning little hideaway that gets my vote based on looks. A mini-moon should be full of romance and the copper bathtub fits the bill quite nicely. The wood-burner and the chance to watch the sun set from the veranda really make this a great option.
A little feast of local goodies, (home-made bread and muesli, loose leaf tea, Blagdon sausages and eggs from across the road to name a few) are also included in your booking. I think I might have to add this one to my list. Hint, hint husband. Prices from £250 per night.
♥ Tinker Tree House (Norfolk)
Solar fairy lights, Moroccan inspired furniture and a fire pit. This treehouse is eco friendly and so stylish. It looks perfect for a chilly night (snuggle up in the goose down duvets) and just as perfect for a summers day (make the most of the private BBQ area).
It even has an area named Croissant Hill. I know. My work here is done. Two night stays from £226.
♥ Into the Woods Treehouse (Isle of Wight)
You’ll feel like you have left the country, without having to wonder too far when you stay in this lovely lodge. Although it sleeps six, why not make the most of your mini-moon and have it to yourself? Blame me if you need an excuse. Interestingly, the woods date back to at least a century ago, when Queen Victoria used to ride in this area.
Oh and there’s kayaking, cycling and surfing to name a few of many activities in the nearby area. Prices from £350 for a weekend.
I think a treehouse would be such a great experience and perfect for a mini-moon, don’t you? Which one is your favourite?
P.S. You’ll find a really good range of stylish treehouses and other cool accommodation here.
