Enjoy a romantic stay in a genuine treehouse, actually up a tree!

The Nest Treehouse has late season price reductions for all stays until the season ends. Available now from only £99.50 per night!

The owners 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 tree house 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 tree house. Rising up the spiral staircase you step onto the decking 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.

‘I brought my partner here for his graduation as a surprise! We have really enjoyed our stay! Despite the weather we visited Sidmouth and Exmouth for some walking, both beautiful! The treehouse has been an amazing experience. Being here in October we enjoyed having the fire going with a glass of mulled wine in our hands – very special- we loved The Nest! Thank you for having us! xxx’

‘My Prince Charming Si brought me to this wonderful place as a surprise for my birthday. He let me lead the way up the path to discover this beautiful treehouse which has been the best surprise I’ve ever had! Our conversations started two years ago with flirty banter of hiding ourselves away and barricading ourselves in a treehouse, and here we are living our dream! I’ve had the most amazing and best time and loved every single second of it too all with the love of my life, my soulmate! Thank you for a beautiful time and we can’t wait to return.’
Si & Chelle, June 2017

‘Came for our 12 year dating (and 3 year wedding) anniversary. Like many others, we also dreamed of having a treehouse. Absolutely loved our stay here.’

‘Lovely, relaxing weekend. Absolutely lovely place to stay. Exceeded all expectations. Blinding weather too! Would definitely recommend to others :).’
Helene & Neil, June 2017

‘An amazing birthday surprise! Fabulous location and a wondrous tree house!!! So hard to go out and ‘fly the nest’ as it’s so beautiful here amongst the trees, so for the best part of our 4 day stay we didn’t! – Delicious relaxation. Loved Sidmouth, great beach, town and pubs with great food. Fulfilled a long held dream of swimming in Chagford Lido. Bit of a drive but absolutely worth it.’
Vicki & Nicholas, June 2017

‘This has been a perfect surprise early birthday present for me. My only request was for a ‘quirky’ weekend (not in a tent!) with good bathroom facilities. I am still smiling now as I was on arrival, walking up the mystery path to this fantastic place! Thank you for having the vision to build this place and also for sharing it with us.’
Ben & Libby, June 2017

‘Really wonderful stay and a complete escape from the city! We spent two nights and a day without even leaving the treehouse, it was that perfect. Thanks!’
Tom & Anya, June 2017
