Let us fly you up into the branches at a treehouse in Sussex. Our luxury, leafy perches are the perfect vantage point from which to appreciate the gorgeous patchwork of rolling Downs dotted with fairytale castles, stately homes and a growing number of award-winning vineyards. Spend long evenings stargazing, wake up to the sound of birdsong, and start each day with a coffee on the deck watching the morning sun break through the mist. It’s amazing how much perspective you’ll gain from a change of scene a few feet off the ground.
We’ve given ourselves an impossible task, to bring you glamping places that are as incredible as the remote locations they’re in. We’ve happily concluded that no man-made structure could ever compete with the raw beauty of nature, but our treehouses in Sussex come pretty close. We inspect each and every one to make sure they offer that special fusion of playful magic, comfort and blissful solitude.

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?
The great outdoors is your private playground on a treehouse getaway. You’re not just near nature, you’re fully immersed in it. Think ancient trunks growing through the floor, dappled sunlight glinting through leaves, and deer wandering past below. Forest bathing has never felt so luxurious, particularly when you’re literally soaking in a tub on the deck, with a glass of the finest Sussex fizz in your hand.
Sustainability and glamping
There’s still room for improvement in the glamping sector but we’re paving the way when it comes to sustainability in the industry. At our spaces, you’ll find rewilding projects, renewable energy sources and a wealth of creatively upcycled materials. As a company we’ve set ourselves some ambitious goals like achieving net zero by 2030. We’re also improving our access to nature and limiting the places we offer in over-touristed areas.

About Canopy & Stars’ expertise
Who are you going to trust with your precious holiday time when there are so many glamping brands out there? Well, you might want to pick the passionate, independent company with a charitable trust that supports environmental causes. Or perhaps the one who has been exploring the wildest, most beautiful corners of the UK and Europe since 2010. Both are us, by the way if you hadn’t guessed. When it comes to glamping, we live, eat and breathe it.
What makes Sussex so special?
Sussex is quintessentially English, with miles of gorgeous coastline, gently undulating hills and sleepy villages. Don’t be fooled by all the picturesque loveliness, there’s a lot more to this dynamic county than first meets the eye. In fact it’s the beating heart of the booming UK wine industry, with local fizz to rival Champagne. Throw in an exciting art and foodie scene and you’ve found the perfect combination of nature, culture and gastronomy. The glamping holy trinity.
We're majority employee owned, which means we all get a say in how the business is run.
