The Nest, Treehouse

The Blackdown Hills, Devon, England

A genuine tree house, in Devon. Perfect holiday for 2 with a difference - What could be more romantic!

We look forward to welcoming you at The Nest Treehouse, a genuine treehouse actually up a tree!  

The perfect romantic break awaits guests at this peaceful and unique treehouse holiday. “The Nest” is approximately 9 metres above the ground in a mature English oak tree, within an ancient broadleaved wood.

With the Jurassic Coast nearby this treehouse makes the perfect base to explore the beautiful county of Devon. Exeter and Taunton are also both within easy driving distance.

On arrival, guests will find plenty of parking. After a short walk through the woods, following the curve of the path, there, rising above is a large English oak tree. On looking further up towards the sky embracing the trunk is the remarkable treehouse. Rising up the spiral staircase you step onto the decked balcony, ideal for those al fresco meals or just relaxing and enjoying the peace and serenity of the location. Immediately off the balcony is the living area, within which is the kitchen, dining area and double bed all made cosy by the wood burning stove. Also just off the balcony, is a fully equipped bathroom with a shower, basin, and toilet.

‘The Nest' is beautifully built to a luxurious standard, fully suspended in its oak tree, with cedar cladding and timber construction, it fits well in the peaceful woodland and sets the scene for a memorable holiday.
