Nestled within the lush grounds of the Fox and Hounds Hotel in the heart of Devonshire, the Treetops Treehouse emerges as an epitome of luxury among the trees. This haven, ideal for families, proudly stands beside a serene trout pond, away from the bustling hotel gardens. Anchoring it? A magnificent oak tree, venerable and historic, estimated to be over 250 years old.
Imagine waking up in a paradise where adventure and tranquility coalesce. From certain angles inside Treetops, you might momentarily forget you’re elevated among the treetops. However, a glance through any of its windows reacquaints guests with the breathtaking expanse of the Devonshire countryside. Encased in this natural beauty, the treehouse’s immediate surroundings feature dedicated bird-boxes, a treat for nature enthusiasts hoping to catch glimpses of owls and various avian residents. Thanks to its discreet locale, wildlife like deer and even elusive otters sometimes grace the area, often entirely oblivious to the admiring eyes watching them from above.
Comfort? The Treetops Treehouse doesn’t compromise. The master suite boasts a plush king-size bed, while a separate room, designed with youngsters in mind, comes with cozy bunk beds. Step into the ensuite bathroom, and indulge in modern comforts. And for those who love to whip up a meal, the kitchen doesn’t disappoint, stocked with every essential. As for those typical English chilly days, they’re best enjoyed by the wood-burner in the snug lounge. If indoor relaxation isn’t enough, the lounge’s French doors open to a spacious deck, promising unrivaled views and serenity.
Thinking of visiting? Rates at the Treetops Treehouse are season-dependent, kicking off at a starting price of €220. Tip: Opt for a mid-week escape for a more budget-friendly experience.
