There’s something about treehouses that sparks feelings of childlike wonder, even if very few of us ever built one as a kid. Climbing up to stay in a treehouse gives you a thrill of the unusual, a literal and figurative change of perspective that can be quite profound. We’ve been searching out the best, most inspiring treehouses for over ten years, so if you’re looking for a bit of magic on your next trip away, try a treehouse holiday for a break from, well, everything.
We personally inspect every treehouse, cabin, yurt, bus and bothy in our collection, so we can vouch for the experience you’ll be getting. We also have a friendly team who will find the perfect treehouse stay for you, from simple structures which immerse you in nature, to majestic treehouses with hot tubs where you can wallow in luxury. If that’s not enough, we also do good things, like creating a Charitable Trust that supports organisations fighting climate change.

Who we are Canopy & Stars is a small, independent travel company on a mission to improve the relationship between travel and the environment, not just by promoting our sustainable treehouse stays, but with campaigning for and funding of environmental projects. In 2018, we established a Charitable Trust that uses its share of profits to support organisations that are fighting to stop climate disaster. Read more about that and our other work here.
Why chose glamping? Quite simply, glamping is good for you and the environment. Our owners love their land and want to preserve it by building low-impact places to stay, so you get to support them and preserve nature while you have a lovely time in a treehouse with a hot tub! You can also travel less when you go glamping, because you can disappear into another world with only a short drive.
Our treehouses Our treehouses run from swinging spherical treepods to chic square apartments and tubular multi-storey constructions. What we look for is individuality and flair. Of course they need to have good beds and everything you need, this is treehouse glamping after all, but we want you to be blown away the moment you climb up, and for a little part of you to never really come back down.
We care about responsible travel We are always looking to reduce our own impact and use our platform to encourage responsible travel among our owners, our guests and the wider industry. We are committed to several ambitious goals, including carbon neutrality by 2030 and equality of access to nature. Our annual Impact Report details our successes, our struggles and our plans for the future. We openly invite you to read it, challenge it and help us do more.
