We’re not entirely sure why, but some of the most inventive, stylish and all-round amazing treehouses are in Wales. We’ve never found an explanation. Could be the diet of grass-fed lamb, or perhaps the abundance of fresh spring water. Maybe even all that fresh air. But any which way, if you’re looking for a treehouse to blow you away, taking a look through the Welsh collection of treehouses is a good start. Pop out to the valleys, and take in the mountain hikes, go wild swimming in the lakes and rivers, and spot the abundance of wildlife skittering through the forest.
Ever stayed with a company, and got there to find the place wasn’t everything it was going to be? If you’re going on holiday, the last thing you need when you travel a long way, is finding your accommodation to be anything less than amazing. That’s why we’re proud to personally inspect every one of our properties. We suss out the views, give the beds a prod, say hi to the owners, and generally make sure it’s as incredible as you’d hope. That way when you get there, the only thing you have to do is unwind.
There is something very special about a treehouse holiday. It might be the sense of childhood wonder they evoke; it might be how connected you feel with nature when you wake up in the trees; it might just be the bragging rights you earn from staying somewhere completely unique. We're lucky enough to have visited every treehouse in our collection and have rounded up a few of our favourites.
Picture the scene. You wake up to the sounds of birds tweeting and a gentle mooing from a distant cow. You roll out of bed feeling like some kind of yogi superstar; blissfully zen and all you can see are trees. A stay in a treehouse in Wales comes with all this as well as epic walks through stunning scenery and outdoor adventures of canoeing, climbing and biking. Living in the trees is the best.
What can I do at these spaces We know what you’re thinking, what am I going to do without my screens? My wifi? My endless scrolling? But we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Whilst you could spend your time away as active as can be – hiking across wild moors or paddling down tree-fringed rivers, the biggest surprise is how nice it can be to do almost nothing at all. Swinging in hammocks with chilled drinks resting on the grass, then spending nights round the firepit, or melting away your stresses in a hot tub.
What does sustainability mean when it comes to glamping? There’s no getting around it, travel leaves a nasty carbon footprint behind. But we happen to think the best way around it, is to promote change within the industry itself, which is why we’ve taken steps to improve our footprint. We’ve capped our destinations in over-touristed areas, committed to planting one million trees, and aim to achieve net zero by 2030. If you’re interested, you can find out a bit more here.
What’s our expertise? We were founded in 2010, so as you can imagine, we’ve picked up some serious experience. We constantly have inspectors roaming the country, checking old spaces and new – all for those qualities that make it special – and we’re rather picky. In fact, we reject 80% of our applicants. So far, we’ve had nearly 200,000 Guests (and a staggering 9,000 dogs) stay with us, and there’s a whole lot more to come.
Is Wales really all that special? From the mountainous Brecon Beacons to the beaches of Pembrokeshire, Wales is wilder than you’d think. There are massive hikes, low river walks, wild swims, forests to bathe in and wildlife to spot at every turn. Whether it’s massive AONBs, or tiny market towns and villages, there’s always more to explore, and the best way to do it, is to start and end your day somewhere stunning. Take a browse of our collection, and you’ll find the spot for you.
