There are some incredible Devon treehouse hotels to stay (or even get married) in.
Just imagine: you’ll wake up to the rustle of leaves and nearby birdsong – yet you’re in luxury surroundings with amazing views.
With all the romance and seclusion that comes from sleeping right in the heart of nature, plus the relaxation of being within reach of mod cons and conveniences (think restaurants, hot tubs and Sonos), we can think of few better places to while away a peaceful few days.
Tempted? Read on for some of the most jaw-dropping Devon treehouses hotels you can stay in …
Tree Top Escape
Surrounded by rolling Devon hills, this luxurious hideaway is perched amongst the trees on the beautiful Millbrook Estate. Full of warm wooden curves, hi-tech sophistication and decadent touches set against the natural backdrop, the beautifully-designed accommodation offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large lounge with panoramic views and an Italian designer kitchen. There’s even a private hot tub on the balcony and a simply stunning copper bath in the main bedroom. And though Tree Top Escape is self catering, there are great places to eat in nearby villages, or if you really feel like indulging yourself the owners can put you in touch with a private chef who’ll cook for you in the treehouse’s own kitchen.

Tree Top Escape is linked via a romantic wooden walkway to The Nest, an intimate and wedding venue for up to 14 guests with equally stunning views.
This beautiful and relatively spacious luxury treehouse can actually sleep 4, having a kingsize bedroom, separate bunk room, fitted kitchen and lounge with large terrace overlooking the fishing lake – and an amazing bathroom with copper bath and shower. It’s fully self-catering, but being in the grounds of the excellent Fox and Hounds Country House Hotel means it’s just a short stroll to meals cooked for you and everything else that entails.

The hotel owns 5 miles of the River Taw that runs alongside, and offers lots of fishing opportunities, as well as classes.
The Treehouse at Deer Park
Perched between two trees in the grounds of the lovely Deer Park Country House Hotel, lies ‘the ultimate love nest’. Hand crafted using the finest materials, including traditional water reed thatch and red cedar cladding, a stay here is truly memorable and indulgent. Decorated with handmade furniture, there’s a beautiful bedroom and cosy lounge area with log burner, as well as the more high tech flatscreen TV and Bluetooth music system. The wrap-around balcony has of course stunning views over gardens and woodland, and the bathroom … well, how does underfloor heating, a dreamy roll-top bath, and a gorgeous rain shower sound?

A night in The Treehouse includes dinner and breakfast in the Deer Park Country House Hotel’s double AA rosette award-winning restaurant.
And here’s one for the kids …
Ok, so if you’ve got little ones then treehouses may be off the agenda – not to mention romantic breaks away for two. But we had to drop this one in: Marsdens Devon Cottages are offering this fantastic family holiday home with a great little treehouse in the (very large) garden. This place would make a great base for a family holiday (perhaps two families – it sleeps 12), having a huge kitchen-diner, great games room, and extensive grounds. And you’d be guaranteed at least some peace and quiet as the kids play in their own little garden retreat. Find out more
