Our favourite treehouse stays in Wales

Picture the scene. You wake up to the sounds of birds tweeting and a gentle mooing form a distant cow. You roll out of bed feeling like some kind of yogi superstar; blissfully zen, no aches and pains and really good hair. An angel has already made you a coffee, just how you like it. You slide into a comfortable chair, gaze out the window and all you can see are trees. Leaves, branches and sunlight through every window. A stay in a treehouse in Wales comes with all this (maybe not coffee-making angels and yogi-like bodies) as well as epic walks through stunning scenery and outdoor adventures of canoeing, climbing and biking. Living in the trees is the best.

1. Beudy Banc Treehouse, Powys

Beudy Banc Treehouse wins all the prizes for location and is a favourite treehouse in Wales for outdoor adventure aficionados. Wake in the trees and within half an hour from your lofty abode you could hit the mountains, the depths of a forest or the beach. Pick your poison; mountain biking the infamous off-road trails, rambling across moors or wild swimming near waterfalls. If you’re looking for culture and buzz, Machynlleth boasts the Wales Museum of Modern Art and many a restaurant, cafe and pub. The treehouse has everything you need for relaxation. After a big day out, stoke the wood burner and watch the stars pop out in the night sky.

2. Lofty, Powys

Life in the trees is a life well spent, as an ancient proverb should definitely go. Life in a treehouse in Wales is even better. Lofty sits among six friends in the beautiful wooded valley of the Living Room. Thirty feet up, Lofty has a curved and gorgeous design. On arrival you’re immediately enveloped with a sense of magic and calm. You’re off-grid, so embrace it, spending time chopping logs for the fire, sitting around the wood burner and generally being idle. If you can tear yourself away from the canopy, Wales and outdoor adventure awaits. The circular walk from your door takes in views of the mountains of southern Snowdonia and part of the amazing Glyndwr's Way. After a ‘hard’ day, treat yourself to dinner at the lovely local pub, just a mile away.

3. Copse Camp, Denbighshire

With Beano magazines for wallpaper, rope bridges to walk and a bed in the roof, Copse Camp is the stuff of your childhood dreams. This treehouse in Wales also comes complete with a Gypsy caravan as a second bedroom, and a hot tub close by. Owners Margaret and Jenny live near enough and are more than happy to help you decide exactly how to spend your time. They’ve lived here for 40 years so know exactly which market towns to explore, National Trust sites to visit and which to pub to stop at. Your morning coffee comes with views of the moors and potential sightings of rabbits, foxes, weasels and owls. You’re in nature, my friend! Stargazing is a must too, the skies here are epic.

4. Cuckoo's Hideaway, Ceredigion

We know what you’re thinking; you really need to stay in a treehouse in Wales that is epically beautiful, very chic and comes with an outdoor breakfast bar, hot tub and a pizza oven. Cuckoo’s Hideaway ticks all the boxes and is humble with it. Kick off your stay by tucking into the welcome hamper whilst delighting in the view from the sofa. Once you’ve caught up on emails (joke, turn your phone off you scoundrel) the day is yours. Head to New Quay to spot dolphins in the bay, discover your new favourite town or choose a section of the Wales Coastal Path. Leave plenty of time to soak in the hot tub, it’s on the deck and is really a rather wonderful place to be.

5. Nyth y Barcud Treehouse, Powys

The Owners of Nyth y Barcud Treehouse made a genius move by popping a special window in the floor to allow guests to wildlife watch, from the comfort of the sofa. This treehouse in Wales is in one of our favourite spots and is a haven for outdoorsy folk that like getting really muddy. Bring your bike along and feel the wind in your hair on the world-class trail on the farm itself, or discover one of the many in the area. The town of Machynlleth is filled with culture, delicious eateries and the promise of a good time. Your treehouse is a beauty, filled with modern amenities so you couldn’t be more comfortable and you’re guaranteed to feel very far away from it all.

6. Mistletoe Treehouse, Monmouthshire

Ditch the car on arrival at Mistletoe Treehouse, you won’t need it anymore. On the doorstep of this fantastic treehouse in Wales is all the entertainment you could need. A two-minute stroll through the woodland and you’re bang on the Wye Valley Walk and Offa’s Dyke is only a little further. Walk wild Wales or, if you prefer a paddle over walking boots, canoe the River Wye, taking in some of the most UK’s most scenic stretches of water. This is a perfect spot for a romantic weekend away, book the pair of you on to a green woodworking course with Gemma or just pop another log on the wood burner and stare into each other's eyes. Whatever floats your boat. Just don’t get caught kissing under the mistletoe…treehouse.
