Glamping in England in style...
This collection of award winning luxury treehouses and a hand crafted woodland yurt are set in beautiful west country woodland in Dorset, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It’s an adults only retreat, perfect for couples who wish to escape and recharge. Each treehouse has its own private deck with a wood fired pizza oven and hot tub, as well as an ensuite flushing loo. The original treehouse on site won an RIBA South West award and has featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces and on Grand Designs. The other two treehouses have both been shortlisted for the 2023 RIBA architectural awards.
The treehouse is based in Dorset woodland, at the point where Dorset meets Devon and Somerset. It is 10 miles from the Jurassic coast at Lyme Regis and 16 miles from the coastal town of Bridport. River Cottage HQ, the brainchild of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is 7.5 miles away, where you can book a variety of cookery courses, as well as courses in curing, smoking and foraging. Head to the coast for beaches, boat trips, mackerel fishing and fossil hunting. Forde Abbey, a medieval monastery, is well worth a visit and right on our doorstep as the estate borders the treehouse woodland. There are lots of great places to eat and drink in the vicinity, the nearest being the Tytherleigh Arms, two miles down the road. Visit Pilsden Pen, the second highest point in Dorset for superb views across Golden Cap and out to sea. Or perhaps you’d like a tour of the Black Cow Vodka distillery, local vodka made from milk! Electric bikes are available to hire nearby and can be delivered to the woods.
Directions provided on booking. You can reach the site without a car - Southwest trains run hourly services from London Waterloo to Axminster (please note it’s essential to pre-book a taxi from the station).

Inside the treehouse accommodation, the glass topped living space, set beneath the tree canopy, allows the space to be filled with light. Full height one-way glass windows allow for stunning views into the woodland. The internal rooms are arranged in a cross shape, but shifted off centre to copy the shape of a child’s pinwheel windmill. You end up with an illusion of three dimensional facades due to the concentric rings of timber which decrease towards the centre. The bedroom has a king size bed, the kitchen is well equipped and the living space has a wood burning stove. There’s an en suite flushing look, plus a separate shower and dressing room.
The private deck has a wood fired pizza oven, BBQ, fire pit, private hot tub, and a two person swing. While away your hours gently swinging amongst the trees, listening to birdsong, and later in the day sinking into the hot tub and gazing at the stars above.
