Over the past three years, we’ve been secretly tending to a rather surprising seed of an idea. Canopy & Stars at Crane 29 - a glorious treehouse suspended high in one of Bristol Harbourside’s iconic cranes! We’ve taken all the goodness of the outdoors and put it into a cosy cocoon of calm in the heart of the city to create a surprising, sensory experience and a true natural high. The best bit? You can actually stay in it!

Although we’ve spent years collating our collection of the most unusual places to stay in the outdoors, this is our first ever treehouse in a crane, and, indeed, the first time you can fully experience a Canopy & Stars holiday in an urban environment. This low-impact build, supported by brilliant solutions from B&Q, is completely carbon neutral and built using sustainable materials. The treehouse will grace Bristol’s skyline for just four months. As the first leaves drop from the trees in late September it will disappear but not before leaving the world a little greener. We'll be donating all profits from the treehouse to Friends of the Earth

It all starts as soon as you climb into Canopy & Stars at Crane 29; you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back into nature with dappled light and greenery abound. Expect a sensory experience full of the sights, scents and sounds of the outdoors. We haven’t held back on comforts or creative touches – catch a panoramic sunset whilst swinging in a hammock, snooze soundly in a reclaimed tree trunk bed and enjoy a breakfast hamper with a bird’s-eye view of the city. The next day you're sure to come down from your crane-top nest feeling inspired and rejuvenated. This little box of surprises provides a city break unlike any other.

Good to know

As a company that prides itself on providing sustainable holidays in the outdoors, it’s important to us that our treehouse is as green as possible. Here are a few of the things we’re doing:


Wood you believe it? All the timber for our treehouse is from sustainable sources and is FSC certified.


The treehouse is 100% carbon neutral and at the end of the project we will be donating materials to be recycled and repurposed.


We have pledged to donate 100% of profits to Friends of the Earth to help ensure that the treehouse is as planet friendly as possible.


B&Q have provided us with sustainable building materials and have helped to make sure the plants we've used are pollinator friendly.
