Live the highlife in your dream treehouse

From treetop verandas to fairytale castles, luxury treehouses are fast becoming the ultimate garden getaway for adults in search of a relaxed alternative to traditional living. Country Homes & Interiors share 5 of their favourites…

Enjoy a drink with friends on a warm summer’s evening as you watch the sun set… sound good? This treetop-dining house has open sides offering panoramic views of surrounding countryside, while a shingled roof provides much-needed shade on sunny days. Prices available on request, Blue Forest.

Small but perfectly formed, this bijoux structure has big open windows and a petite alcove inside just the right size for a desk. Peace, quiet and inspirational views across open countryside make it the perfect office space. What’s more, you can build it yourself in no time at all with easy-to-follow instructions (materials not included), £26.05, TreehouseGuides.

Limited tree space? Not keen on heights? High-up homes aren’t feasible for everyone. Opt for one a little closer to the ground such as this cute cubby house from Castles Carey. It’s got enough height to make it feel fun and different and a wrap-around balcony makes the most of rolling views; a great alternative to tree-top living. From £9,950.

Let your imagination run wild in this magical high-rise, straight out of a whimsical fairytale. With towering turrets and gothic arched windows it’s a dream garden addition for children and adults alike! High Life Treehouses create a number of bespoke fantasy structures, from quirky play areas to infamous ‘Hobbit Holes’! Prices start from £5000.

Expand your living space up into the trees or indulge in a garden guest suite from the Treehouse Company as a unique alternative to extensions and conversions. Decorative plant pots and terracing frame the front door on this stylish treetop dwelling – a lovely welcome for friends and family. Prices available on request.
