We’re not sure if it’s the higher vibrations emanating from Glastonbury Tor, but our lofty treehouse pads in Somerset have a special kind of energy. Perhaps it’s just their incredible design. Grab a chunk of cheddar, pour a West Country cider and unwind on the deck while you decide whether to head to Georgian splendour in Bath or visit epic Cheddar Gorge. Being so well connected by road and rail means our Somerset treehouses are extremely popular, so make sure you nab the one you want.
We don’t like to brag but we’re treehouse connoisseurs at Canopy & Stars. Simply being a few feet off the ground isn’t enough for us, we want to transport you to another world high among the branches. Spend your evenings soaking in a fairy-lit outdoor tub, drift off to sleep in a luxuriously cosy bed and sip your morning coffee on a wooden deck to the sounds of birdsong. All with spectacular bird’s eye views over Somerset’s rolling hills, grassy flatlands, apple orchards and historic cities.
Being immersed in nature, high up among the branches will delight your inner child, while the palatial luxury of our high-flying retreats will satisfy adult yearnings for comfort and style. Boost your wide-eyed wonderment quota and take a look at six treehouses with cool, secret features.
Our playful, luxurious treehouses are so far removed from everyday life that time seems to slow down, allowing you to unwind, take in the incredible views and live lightheartedly in the moment. Don’t just take our word for it, find out what your fellow guests have to say about our most loved treehouses.
What can I do at a treehouse? Get back in touch with nature in luxurious, playful surroundings on a treehouse getaway in Somerset. You can be as active as you like with walks, cycle rides and days out on the doorstep, or take the chance to switch off completely. Get the wood burner going, fill up the outdoor tub and melt into the warm water with a glass of fizz as you gaze out over green fields. Peace at last.
Sustainability and glamping There's no denying that travel leaves a carbon footprint but we're proactively taking steps to improve ours and work towards a better, greener future. At Canopy & Stars our goal is to become net zero by 2030. We've capped our destinations in over-touristed areas and we support our owners to reduce their environmental impact. You can find out more about how we're improving our carbon footprint in our impact report.
About Canopy & Stars’ expertise Why should you trust us with your precious time off? Well, we're a small, independent travel company who have been uncovering the most unique glamping spaces in the UK and Europe since 2010. So we know a thing or two about treehouses, cabins, shepherd's huts and wagons by now. Only 20% of applications we receive make the cut so you can feel safe in the knowledge that the places in our exclusive collection are pretty special.
What makes Somerset so special? Gently scenic, packed with character and steeped in Arthurian legend, you’re surrounded by beauty and history while staying in one of our Somerset treehouses. Visit the small-but-perfectly-formed cathedral city of Wells or Bath Abbey, or hike the Mendip Way, visit Clevedon pier or explore England’s largest gorge at Cheddar. Somerset is somewhere to celebrate the good life - with a festival, an award-winning cider, some smooth vintage cheese or a slice of apple cake never far away.
