Sounds good? Let’s dive right in!

From treehouses with hot tubs to treehouses with amazing views, here are the 12 best treehouses in Somerset that you need to stay at.

1. Dabinett Treehouse

Price per night: From £205 for 2 people

Location: Wookey, Wells

Set on the same orchard as Vilberie Cabin, Dabinett Treehouse is something seriously special.

From the sumptuous king-size bed to the sofa by the wood burner to the incredible bathtub out on the deck, there’s so much to discover here.

Similar to Vilberie Cabin, the star attraction of the treehouse is, of course, the outdoor hot tub.

Whether you relax in it in the morning with a coffee from the Nespresso machine, or in the evening with a bottle of wine from the neighbouring vineyard, you’re guaranteed a relaxing stay here.

What guests say: “Dabinett Treehouse and Fenny Orchard was wonderful. All the details had been thought of, the log burner prepared, milk and butter, local treats in a basket. Lovely toiletries and fluffy towels. The view was wonderful and the treehouse itself was thoughtfully decorated so snug and flawlessly clean! The orchard itself was secure peaceful and private.”

2. The Bower Treehouse

Price per night: From £250 for 2 people

Location: North Brewham, Bruton

If you’re looking for one of the most luxurious glamping holidays in Somerset, then look no further than the Bower Treehouse.

Everything at the Bower is organic, so you’ll feel even closer to nature here.

From the bath salts, candles and woodland setting to the king-sized bed carved from stag oak, this treehouse is a real escape from modern life.

The question isn’t ‘Do I stay here?’ but more ‘Do I head to the huge outdoor hot tub or to the firepit first?’.

What guests say: “First and foremost, The Bower Treehouse is where we just got engaged, so we will always treasure our stay there! It was full of thoughtful high-quality touches – good coffee, natural skincare, robes, fresh milk in the fridge. Felt like every need had been anticipated! Really respect and appreciate the eco values too.”

3. The Yurt Retreat Birdhouse

Price per night: From £247 for 2 people

Location: Fordscroft, Crewkerne

If The Yurt Retreat’s roundhouses didn’t take your fancy (though you’d be mad not to like them!), how’s about a stay in their Birdhouse?

Standing proud on its tree trunk stilts, the treehouse is clad in local Cedar.

A wide staircase winds between the trees to lead you up to your ample decking where you’ll find a gorgeous wood-fired hot tub.

Inside, the treehouse is just as dreamy.

From the handmade bed to the rain-head shower, they certainly haven’t skimped on luxurious touches here.

What guests say: “We stayed in the Birdhouse, a beautiful eco treehouse, slept so well at night, lovely, warm & cosy, everything has been thought of inside this treehouse (even lactose-free milk) we enjoyed the marshmallows in the evening sitting by the fire, at night there are pretty lights that light up the treehouse & forest outside, so romantic we didn’t want to leave.”

4. Cheriton Treehouse

Location: Horsington, Templecombe 

You know I love a treehouse, which is why Cheriton Treehouse has to be one of my favourite places to go glamping in Somerset!

Inspired by comparable structures built in Scandinavia, the treehouse has a unique design that is the first of its kind in the UK.

The interior is spacious and airy, with lots of luxurious touches such as a wood burner, huge copper tub, a heated floor and a handcrafted bed.

And most importantly, there are two elevated viewing decks from which you can soak in the views.

You might even be lucky enough to spot local deer drinking from the pond below!

What guests say: “This was heaven and a lovely treat for a short stay. Peaceful with lovely views, countryside and a bit of luxury. The hot tub was fantastic and the wood burner added to the experience. A must is a hot chocolate with Amaretto with blankets watching the night sky. Lots of birds, nuthatch climbed the tree most mornings and heard owls in the evening. Visits on the lake from lots of wildlife.” 

5. Orchard Rooms Treehouse

Price per night: From £150 for 2 people

Location: Catcott, Somerset

One of the most amazing treehouse holidays with a hot tub in the UK, Orchard Rooms Treehouse is modern, romantic, and, well, pretty much perfect.

If it’s luxury and relaxation that you’re after, you’ll get it here!

There are so many different places to unwind here, from the hammock and the firepit to the hot tub and the balcony.

Plus, there’s even an outdoor shower for those feeling a little more adventurous too!

And if the weather’s not on your side, cosy up in the living area and get ready to play board and card games.

What guests say: “The treehouse was much more spacious than we had anticipated, and we had everything we needed for our stay, including a lovely little goodies hamper! We spent blissful mornings on the balcony with coffee in hand watching the birds, and the evenings relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of something, enjoying the peace and quiet. Every thought has been put into this lovely little stay, and it is an absolute gem of a find.”

6. Lavender Hill Holidays Treehouses

Price per night: From £215 for 6 people

Location: Taunton, Somerset

Oh, just LOOK at how dreamy these treehouses are!

One of the best treehouse hotels in the UK, Lavender Hills Holidays‘ treehouses are far less glamping than they are luxurious five-star holiday homes.

From fluffy towels and Egyptian cotton linen to Wi-Fi and a smart TV, both treehouses are filled with every home comfort imaginable.

Not only do you have access to your own private hot tub on the decking, but guests also have use of a 38 ft by 18 ft indoor heated pool.

Great for water babies and fitness fanatics alike!

Afterwards, you can tuck into the delicious selection of local produce that comes with each treehouse.

What guests say: “Just spent five fantastic days at the treehouse. Wow is all I can say, it was like a fairytale, so peaceful. The children loved the freedom and the use of the hot tub and swimming pool. They didn’t want to leave and neither did we. Highly recommend a break here.”

7. Romantic Treehouse

Surrounded by fields and idyllic countryside views, you’ll feel a million miles away from the rat race here.

The enchanting treehouse allows you to sleep under the stars in luxury, with a cosy double bed, quaint kitchen and full bathroom for you to use.

However, my favourite thing about the treehouse is its charming decor and bright and airy wood-panelled walls!

What guests say: “Had a lovely stay in the treehouse. Located on a picturesque farm in a little village. There were board games and books in the room that would be good if you’re staying for a couple of days. The hosts even kindly provided breakfast ingredients, which was a lovely touch that I wasn’t expecting.”

8. Somerset Tree Tent

Price per night: From £115 for 2 people

Location: Shepton Mallet, Somerset

Okay, so Somerset Tree Tent is easily one of my top five places to go glamping in Somerset. I mean, just look at it!

Could you possibly ask for anything more unique than that?

Wild, natural and totally off-grid, the tree tent is a suspended spherical structure strung between two trees overlooking the gorgeous Mendip Hills.

It captures the fun of camping while still feeling luxurious.

From the rope bridge to the fire pit to the hot outdoor shower, get ready for a stay like no other.

What guests say: “We had the most wonderful stay at the tree tent! Pippa was ever so accommodating and helped my boyfriend (now fiancée) to set up the perfect proposal! From the moment you drive through the gates, you will be in awe of the beauty and sense of tranquility. The kitchen is fully equipped, the shower is a great experience and the fire is perfect – don’t forget marshmallows! You also get a great view of the sunset from the field just outside the tree tent.”

9. Old Mill Treehouse

Price per night: From £150 for 2 people

Location: Norton St Philip, nr Bath

Old Mill Treehouse feels more akin to a luxury hotel room in the skies than a shabby treehouse.

The treehouse comprises a double bedroom with a TV and a luxurious en-suite bathroom.

Inside you’ll find all the comforts of home, and outside you’ll discover all the charms of nature.

And luckily for you, the outside space is well-equipped for you to enjoy it at its best.

Alongside plenty of space to roam, you also get an alfresco dining area, two separate comfy seats, a hammock, fire pit, and so much more.

Dibs on the hammock!

What guests say: “The Old Mill Treehouse has hands down got to be the most tranquil and peaceful place I’ve ever stayed. The fairy lights, candles and the fire make it more intimate and warm. The tree house was very clean, very nicely presented and had the perfect little touches including board games, little soaps and toiletries etc. I  can hands down say it is the best place I’ve stayed.”

10. Harptree Tree House

Price per night: From £200 for 2 people

Location: East Harptree, nr Wells

Harptree Tree House is as dreamy as it is well-equipped.

With a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious living area, massive double bed, and an en-suite bathroom, this treehouse really is a home away from home.

It even has a large balcony where you can sit and listen to the sounds of nature with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

However, the highlight of the treehouse has to be the deep copper bath that has long soaks written all over it.

What guests say: “We had a fabulous weekend at Harptree Treehouse. The setting was fabulous, hidden in the woods, tucked up in the trees, a really romantic treat. The treehouse itself was beautiful, with a gorgeous bathtub, and so well equipped. The welcome basket was the best I have ever experienced – breakfast was completely sorted and the bottle of fizz went down very well indeed.”

11. Tree Tops Glamping Pod

Price per night: From £76 for 4 people

Location: Churchstanton, nr Taunton

Tree Tops Glamping Pod is easily one of the more unique treehouses in Somerset.

Climb a ladder to discover your treetop safari tent and some amazing forest views!

Whether you choose to sit inside on the bean bags or outside around the cosy fire is up to you, but regardless of where you relax, you’ll return to normal life feeling completely rejuvenated.

Personally, I’m being drawn to the balcony that has ‘alfresco breakfast’ written all over it.

What guests say: “We had a great stay at Tree Tops Glamping Pod. I don’t think the pictures sell it enough. It was super easy to find, waking up to the views from the top is amazing and the pizza oven makes great pizzas. We wish we could have stayed longer. The shower and loo were a very nice touch. We would love to come back and see what it’s like in the summer as the balcony looked beautiful to sit out on and eat breakfast.”

12. The Pod at Springwater

Price per night: From £164 for 4 people

Location: Churchstanton, nr Taunton

Last but absolutely by no means least we have The Pod at Springwater.

The small, eclectic, handcrafted space is surprisingly well-equipped with all sorts of luxuries, including a Smart TV and a modern en-suite bathroom.

Outside, the story is much the same with an outdoor fireplace, pizza oven, BBQ, firepit, den, hammock, rope swing, and so much more to discover!

However, my personal favourite part of the treehouse is the round window by the bed.

Waking up to those treetop views sounds nothing short of dreamy to me!

What guests say: “What an amazing weekend. The pod was beyond our expectations. We were able to unlock our inner child there by going down the slide from the porch and go star gazing on the hammock. I almost don’t want to give away too much as its so much fun to find out for yourself.”
