Make sure your dog is barking up the right tree at one of our Devon nests, that welcome four-legged friends with open arms. These treehouses may be perched in the branches but they’re suitable for your dog to enjoy too – in fact, they won’t believe their luck as they explore their exciting new play park among the leaves. There are nooks and crannies to investigate, intriguing new smells to sniff and decks to sprawl on in the fresh air after a happy day chasing sticks on new walks. Take a look at our dog friendly treehouses in Devon.
You and your hound are in for a treat at Nest, a luxurious palace of a treehouse nestled in 20 acres of Devon countryside. Inside, it gives most designer boutique hotels a run for their money with a super king sized bed, gold double bath, underfloor heating and a movie projector. The private courtyard outside has a wood fired hot tub and after a long, relaxing soak you can show off your culinary skills on the outdoor stove, BBQ or pizza oven. The Sleepy Owl site is tucked in a hidden valley, below the spectacular Hartland Peninsula. Furry friends can explore the river, woods and wide open fields, then relax at the doggy spa before taking a well earned nap in their cosy bed.
The scenic location of Hideaway Treehouse at Pickwell Manor is bliss for dogs, with a spring in their step who will love the stunning beach walks and the rolling expanses of Exmoor national park. The views from its six acres of grounds are pretty glorious for humans too. The Treehouse is a masterclass in beautiful curving craftsmanship. You’ll lounge around with your hound on the leather sofas and laze in the king sized bed, but the big draw is the gorgeous deck with sea views through the treetops. It’s the perfect spot to start the day with a morning coffee and a few doggie treats before bounding through the woods.
The owners of The Wonham Oak treehouse are dog people, as you’ll discover if you meet their friendly, bouncy labrador. The jewel in the crown of this peaceful retreat is the enclosed balcony, beyond huge bifold doors, that overlooks the tree canopy bursting from a rewilded abandoned quarry below. The drench-shower wet room comes a close second with a floor to ceiling window for spotting deer, pheasants and squirrels while you shampoo and condition. Once your dog has explored the woods on site, venture further afield to Holnicote Estate, a 12,000 acre estate with inland and coastal walks, or head to dog-friendly Woolacombe beach for a paddle in the shallows.
Ravendere Treehouse will provide a pet four poster bed at no extra charge – pampered pooches eat your heart out! Humans are equally indulged in this luxurious, award winning space, nestled in the canopy of four mature beech trees with valley views and total seclusion. Will you start with a stroll through the ancient woodland, a soak in the freestanding clawfoot tub or perhaps a spa treatment or private dining experience in the comfort of your retreat? It’s these kinds of tough decisions that warrant a lazy afternoon nap with your four-legged friend in the spacious living area in front of a glowing wood burner. Once you’ve found a second wind, take your furry friend for a stroll to Lee Bay village for a Tarka beer or on a woodland walk to the coast.
This is the absolute dream family holiday in France – a big space for games, fire pits, hot tubs and beautiful little beach right through the trees. There are even kayaks to borrow so you can explore the coast. Back up in the lodge you’ve got proper beds and camp kitchens on the deck, so you can work on dinner while the kids crash about in the field. You can all walk down to the beach for sunset, on a soft sandy track, before coming back up to soak in the hot tub and hope the little ones are tired enough for bed.
If you like an Insta worthy photo opportunity, make sure you snap one of your dog traversing the mini drawbridge at The Hideout Treehouse in Devon. Then get another as you slide the moving indoor-outdoor copper bathtub to your preferred spot for a long soak. Luxurious doesn’t even come close, The Hideout is beautifully designed with minute attention to detail like colour mood LED lighting, luxury savoy bedding and even a telescope, so you can stargaze in the dark skies area. You might spot the Milky Way if you’re lucky. In the heart of 20 acres of the UNESCO North Devon Biosphere Reserve, this is a one of a kind treehouse with the space and stunning natural surroundings that your dog will relish as much as you.
