Children welcome. Sorry no pets.

A huge, multi-level treehouse within the branches of a 250 year old oak tree

Treetops Treehouse is quite literally a whole house in a tree. Designed around the massive 250 year old oak tree in the grounds of the Fox & Hounds Country Hotel, owners Nick and Tara realised there was enough space within the canopy to create a seriously spacious apartment, and they really made the most of it – the whole interior is a warren of interconnected rooms, designed in and around the branches. There's a bedroom with kingsize bed upstairs, a living room and kitchen downstairs, and a contemporary wood burner keeping you cosy at all times. There’s even a bathroom with a copper bathtub for total bubbly bliss! While the treehouse is perfect for a romantic getaway, just down a few steps down from the main bedroom is a real dream room for children, with criss-crossed bunks and a ladder of branches leading up to the top. The whole structure is designed with subtle luxury and nature in mind, and the furniture is finished with oak hardwood saved from the tree itself.

After taking in the interior, open up the big French doors and step onto the deck. Find the secret sheltered cubby hole and settle down into the bean bags, where you can look over the fishing lake and the Douglas Fir treetops of Heywood Forest. Once you’ve climbed up the wooden steps, the height gives the advantage of feeling completely private, with the branches to yourself, while the hotel with its spa and bar is just below. You can even watch the local train chug past beneath you!

Treetops Treehouse is set in the North Devon Biosphere reserve, with the River Taw just below. As well as fishing on the lake and river, there are a whole range of rural activities to enjoy. If you want to leave the car behind, Eggesford train station is just a 5 minute walk away, and the Tarka line runs to Barnstaple in one direction and Exeter in the other.

Our guests say...

It was a special treat for our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted to spend some quality time together. The seclusion this place offered was just right for us. The trees, the lake and space to relax and enjoy each other's company was precious. We were blessed with good weather (not predicted) so all in all it was perfect. There was a wedding up at the hotel during the afternoon and evening but we didn't hear a thing!



Wow! Just returned from the most amazing, relaxing, chilled weekend ever. The treehouse is magical and comes highly recommended. The amenities are fantastic, the use of wood within the property creates a wonderful feel. A real must!



Our stay was all too short. We were amazed at the design of the treehouse and felt immediately relaxed and a world away from everyday pressures. Little details like cowshed organic toiletries, soft white towels,tea, coffee,jams,eggs, bread and butter, were all appreciated. The setting was magical and in the evening we opened the doors wide,lit the wood burner and felt as if we were part of the tree and its natural visitors. We slept in clean white bedding on comfortable beds carved into the treehouse. It was just heavenly!



We had the most amazing stay in the trees. The treehouse was awe inspiring and being able to eat, sit and live amongst the trees was a real one off experience. The food hamper from the hotel was amazing and the food was local, fresh and flavoursome.



Treehouse was perfect, a beautiful getaway nestled into a quaint area of Devon. Fully catered, with more than one would expect for a treehouse! Great for a romantic break but also would be an ideal location for a family holiday! The only downside, it is a little bit closed off, with neither myself or partner driving there was little to explore in the surrounding area but we still had a great time



We booked the treehouse as a big surprise for our two daughters aged 6 and 7. They were so excited when they saw the magical place in the big old oak tree. We had a memorable stay over halloween night.



Perfect from start to finish. A magical place, nicely hidden so the kids got a big surprise. Every last detail of the design was stunning, and the thoughtful extras like the jams, milk, water and Cowshed toiletry were delightful.



Our stay at the Treetops treehouse in Eggsford was magical! It far exceed our expectations and we only had one complaint......that we hadn't booked to stay for longer!



We came to the Treetops Treehouse to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed in the slightest. The whole experience was truly magical from the cowshed products to the uniquely crafted treehouse and beautiful views. An experience not to forget.



I have just had a long weekend from 4th June-7th with my partner at the treehouse. I'm a travel counsellor so always looking at new places to go. What an amazing place such detail and good quality and finish. The weather was beautiful sitting looking over the lake at breakfast lunch and dinner was awesome . Everything we needed was in the house for us. The BBQ pack was super meat was amazing. We had long walks after lunch each day such beautiful surroundings. The river was beautiful also to take a small walk my partner even paddled in it. Been surrounded by all this nature was incredible. I will be recommending my clients and friends and family to have a stay here. The robes were a great touch the fire was so warming whilst we sat with the doors open listening to the birds of an evening. The staff at the hotel were brilliant and helpful.



Fantastic stay in the treehouse , our second trip there. Weather was really nice, it is so peaceful and relaxing there and the bathtub is amazing - but best of all is waking up to see the tree branches directly outside of the window with clear blue sky, amazing !



We had the most amazing time. I proposed to my girlfriend on the balcony after we'd explored the rooms and were about to open out champagne. She said yes and we had the most idilic few days relaxing in the treehouse and beautiful grounds.



We stayed here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It's a fantastic treehouse, beautifully made with everything you could possibly need. We ate in the hotel on one night, and the food was exceptional. The hospitality of all the staff was absolutely lovely. There were special touches in the treehouse, such as bread, jams, and cider



An awesome experience for the whole family (2 adults, 2 children). The attention to detail was perfect - it was like staying at a 5* hotel at the top of the tree.! We didnt want to leave! Facilities amazing - wood burner in a treehouse?! And a sunday roast in the hotel after the hotels nature walk. Perfect weekend! I have recommended to everyone I know. (Be good to go back without the kids but Im not sure they would let us!)



From the moment you see Treetops Treehouse you know you are going to have an amazing stay! The Treehouse looks magnificent from the outside and is beautifully decorated. I would truly recommend Treetops Treehouse for a very memorable stay.

"AMAZING. we were blown away with the views from the treehouse and the treehouse itself. the weather wasn't too bad considering it was mid December. we did lots of walking and explored the little town of chulmleigh"



"Treetops treehouse is absolutely brilliant. We stayed as a birthday treat for my boyfriend and he was amazed!  The style and finish is gorgeous and so cosy and romantic!  We couldn't decide whether to sleep in the kids bunks or the double bed as both were fun!  Recommend as either a luxury romantic getaway or fun family stay.  The food from the restaurant in the fox and hounds country hotel was outstanding with very friendly and efficient service"



"Great place..loved the tree-house and the log fire which made it really cosy. So glamorous..Everyone we showed photos to loves the look of it and wants to stay there..We just wish we could have stayed there longer than 1 night"



"a magical place for a short family holiday- my boys were as entranced as me"



"The tree house was absolutely incredible, it was so well built and was so well incorporated into the tree - it really felt like we were staying in the tree!"



"Difficult to say what was the best thing - the feeling of living in a tree, in a lovely wooden house,with a copper bath and a wood burner, in a beautiful spot in Devon...the place just had a magical effect on us all (Mum, Dad, 2 kids). Worst thing? We couldn't work the TV, but actually were happy in the end to be free of TV for couple of days!"



"We loved every minute of our stay, we should have stayed for longer. The treehouse was perfect."



"The treehouse was beautiful, unusual, well maintained, excellent grounds."



"Our stay at Treetops was unforgettable. The property was gorgeously put together and something straight out of a fairy tale. With a great Taw river location and the luxury of a our treehouse and all it's treats (copper bath tub especially) the only dilemma was deciding whether to go explore or nest in our tree!"



"The place was beautiful, the treehouse was incredible and everything about it was perfect. There was even cider, bread, milk, oil and butter provided on our arrival! We really enjoyed it and were really sad to leave."



"We loved it! Wonderful accommodation that made our anniversary extra special. We were especially impressed with how well decorated the treehouse was and added touches like spotlights round bath, heating on deck and wood burner."



"The treehouse was so well made and everything in it was such good quality. There were also little touches that we didn't expect which were nice... like some milk, bread, cider etc. The best thing was the novelty value of being up in the trees. Also I had the best bath ever in the free standing copper bath!"



"Amazing treehouse very well built. Waking up to a squirrel looking eye to eye very surreal. "
