Situated up on high in a veteran oak tree resides an ideal getaway for two. Alluding more to a deciduous Utopia than a lodging facility, The Woodsman’s Treehouse offers a glimpse into the marriage of sustainable craftsmanship coupled with luxury. And with the location secluded, picturesque and elevated you’d be hard-pressed to find this level of luxury and privacy anywhere else.
The Treehouse is located within the forested region of the Jurassic Coast which hugs the English Channel in southern England. It’s a rugged yet refined place to stay and features a handful of accommodations such as a double-ended copper bath, leather club chairs, king-sized bed, large deck with a wood fired pizza oven and outdoor tree shower, a roof and spa with a hot tub, and a clear glass bottom to view the stream whisking away below your feet. Also if you catch a bit of childhood nostalgia, there’s a 1-meter-wide stainless steel slide that functions as an appropriate exit from the treehouse. It’s all made possible thanks to Guy Mallinson, an elite wood craftsman who first escaped into the woodlands of West Dorset to surround himself with the medium he cherished most. Reservations for the Woodsman’s Treehouse start around $477 a night. [Purchase]
