A Luxury Treehouse Is a Glamper’s Dream


Spending time in nature doesn’t have to mean giving up the comforts of modern life. In the UK, you can sleep in a tree while still enjoying a soft bed and a bath. Crafty Camping, which bills itself as the “ultimate luxury glamping experience,” offers stays at its Woodsman’s Treehouse, as Curbed reports. Here, guests can retreat into the treetop and enjoy a sauna while pretending to commune with nature.

Designed by Crafty Camping’s Guy Mallinson—who also offers woodworking classes on the property—along with the architecture firm Brownlie Ernst and Marks, the 30-foot-tall treehouse overlooks a forest stream near the Jurassic Coast in southern England.

It has a flush toilet, a copper bath, a king-sized bed, a hammock, and the aforementioned sauna on a rooftop deck. There’s also a wood-burning stove, as everyone wants in their treehouse. There’s a spiral staircase leading up to the rooftop spa, and a metal slide that you can slither down to dismount from your woodsy abode. It’s built on stilts, with the tree rising up through the deck, and you’ll probably have to share the space with a few squirrels that also call that particular tree home.

It’s $380 a night, or you can rent the whole site (with seven other glamping accommodations) starting at $1320 a night.
