6 romantic treehouse escapes in the UK

6 romantic treehouse escapes in the UK

These lofty boltholes are perfect for couples – just don't look down, says Emma Higgins!

1. The Treehouse at Harptree Court, Somerset

Nothing says romance like a copper bath - one of Harptree Treehouse's most decadent features. A plush double bed, wood-burning stove, and fully-equipped kitchen complete this secluded getaway.

Nearby, the Mendip Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and the cities of Bath and Bristol make ideal day trips - although you may not want to leave at all when you see the huge terrace.

2. Treehouse at Fernie Castle, Fife

Built in a cluster of sycamore trees, a stay at Fernie Castle's treehouse is like stepping into a fairytale. That's not just because of its turreted roof, framed by foliage, but also because of the décor - fairies and mythical creatures are painted on the walls.

There's a large bedroom (with king size bed) and three balconies so you'll have plenty of space. The grounds of Fernie Castle are also yours to explore.

3. Lost Meadow Treepod, Bodmin

The Lost Meadow Treepod is a quirky rental that prides itself on sustainability. Made from low-impact, lightweight (but strong) materials its unique design resembles a giant beehive.

Ideal for couples who want to curl up in their own little bubble (quite literally), it even comes with a ceiling window so you can gaze up at the night sky from the bed. The treepod is located in the depths of the woods in Cornwall, a few miles from the south coast, and a kitchen hut and fire circle directly below is yours to use.

4. Chewton Glen, Hampshire

This is a treehouse by name, but not by nature - it's a luxury hotel on stilts. Within the grounds of Chewton Glen hotel, this decadent treehouse experience offers suites in the forest canopy, with panoramic views from your floor-to-ceiling windows, breakfast hampers served to your door each morning, and giant terraces - some with a private hot tub.

Calling Hampshire home, Chewton Glen is right by England's beautiful south coast and New Forest National Park.

5. Tree Sparrow House, Cornwall

Nestled in the trees of southern Cornwall is Tree Sparrow House - which is as tiny and charming as it sounds. This cubby-like treehouse is suitable for two people, with a double bed on a mezzanine level and small kitchen and wash room below.

Cosy and quirky, and a ten-minute walk away from the beach, this Cornwall gem is ideal for travellers who want to get away from the chaos of modern life and disappear into wilderness.

6. Living Room Treehouses, Powys

In the heart of north Wales, just south of Snowdonia, are Living Room Treehouses - a group of six curved pods set in the treetops. Each has a kitchen, living area, bathroom facilities and terrace.

Set deep in the woods, these treehouses are an off-the-grid experience ideal for lovers of the outdoors - so isolated that once you arrive you're taken by the owners on a short hike through the forest to reach them.
