6 Treehouses You’ll Want To Stay In Right Now

Posted by on

When you were 10, nothing was more exciting than camping in a treehouse, each of your buddies dragging a backpack full of “essentials” up the rope ladder, your dad taking BBQ orders via the cup-and-string radio you’d whittled together, as your older sister interrupted a game of truth and dare at the worst possible moment. Treehouses made for some truly epic overnight lodging -- and they’ve been taken to the next level, quite literally. 

Ranging from rustic to ritzy, the planet is pockmarked with some of the most secluded, almost off-grid treehouses, where the amenities are more than just a sleeping bag and a flashlight. Translation: it’s time for you to escape, explore, switch off and more with these incredible treetop boltholes across the UK, US and Canada.

 

Hiding in the heart of the Welsh mountains, deep in the woods of a secret valley, is one of the most soul-stirring treehouses you could ever hope to stumble across -- Gwdy Hw. Designed to look like it’s floating in the forest canopy, this place will leave you in total disbelief from the second you spy the spiral staircase to the moment you leave the incredible curved pod that you’ve called home. Totally off-grid yet packed with cosy features, this is a treehouse you’ll never want to leave. Simple, incredible and surrounded by the raw beauty of nature, all of which you can dine amongst on the outdoor terrace. Sleeps 4 | Child-friendly

 

When it comes to natural beauty, untouched landscapes and backdrops that will leave you speechless, Canada takes home the gold. That’s what makes it the perfect place for these three spherical treehouses, hiding deep in the coastal rainforest of Vancouver Island. Suspended 15ft above the forest floor, these cedar orbs allow you to experience nature in unbelievable luxury as you are rocked to sleep surrounded by the serenity of this forest canopy and views across the hidden lake below. Sleeps 2 | Children-welcome

 

Think back to your childhood dreams of what a treehouse could be and now multiply that by a thousand and you’re about halfway there because Treetops Treehouse in Devon is on another level… multiple levels actually, all built in and around an ancient oak. And that’s just the beginning. Step inside and you have everything you could ever need to switch-off-and-reset. Fire up the wood-burner, crack open the welcome cider, and watch the sun set on the fishing lake, nearby forest and rolling hills while you relax in the huge copper bath. And we’re not even close to done. From secret cubby holes filled with cosy bean bags to king size beds in the oak tree canopy, al fresco grilling on the levitating deck to the local train chugging past you, this treehouse is seriously special. Sleeps 4 | Child-friendly

 

Close your eyes and imagine the most postcard-perfect lakeside retreat. Now imagine that retreat is a cosy cabin on stilts surrounded by 34 acres of woodland, wilderness and wonder because that’s exactly what Willow Treehouse is. Barely 15 minutes from Woodstock, New York, this rustic yet minimalist escape lets you get up close and personal with nature without even having to step outside. Featuring a lofted bed that hides above the open living space, Willow Treehouse boasts these huge wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows that celebrate the lake in front and the trees all around. So whether you're in the mood for a middle-of-nowhere hike or just want to relax in front of a crackling log fire, this is one hell of a spot to unwind and unplug. Sleeps 2 | Everyone welcome
