Bough Breaks: 5 Treehouse Hotels

“From secret clubs to hide-and-seek, treehouses evoke childhood memories galore. Perhaps that’s why staying in the branches as an adult is such a perfect slice of escapism – well, that and the cracking views, fresh air and free-roaming wildlife. Far from childish playhouses or splintery shacks, the five arboreal stays on this list are exciting and luxurious.

This luxurious treehouse is hidden away in the branches of an ancient oak tree in the grounds of the Fox & Hounds Country Hotel. Sleep in a kingsize bed, bathe in a freestanding copper bath and lounge by the woodburner; it really is a house in a tree. The best bit, though, is that it looks out over such a perfect slice of English countryside. The gardens stretch down to the beautiful River Taw, and you might be lucky enough to spot otters, pheasants, owls, woodpeckers, siskins and roe deer.

Tree Hotel, Lulea, Sweden

Imagine living up among the tall pines of northern Sweden, gazing out at the spectacular views, or watching the Northern Lights illuminate the sky above you. The Tree Hotel is quite unlike anywhere else. While most treehouses are built in a traditional, rustic style, here you can choose to stay in an extraordinary mirrored cube, a UFO or a huge bird nest. Activities are appropriately wild and outdoorsy too: you can hire a snowmobile, take a family fishing trip or learn how to forage for berries and mushrooms.

Superb eco-credentials ensure you’ll go home with wonderful memories and a fresh appreciation for the precious Amazon rainforest.
