IF YOU BOOK this stunning multi-level treehouse in Somerset from as little as £70 per person, per night then you would be barking up the RIGHT tree.
The curved capsules of Cheriton Treehouse twine around a mature oak tree in the beautiful Blackmore Vale, in what is an incredible feat of craftsmanship.
Images from the exterior show off the beautiful design of this one of a kind property, the first of its kind in the UK.
Photos from the interior prove that the inside of the property delivers the kind of luxury that the outside promises.
Among Cheriton’s best features are a huge stand-alone copper bath tub where guests can blissfully unwind from the stresses and strains of everyday life whilst the impressive wood burner is guaranteed to keep you snug on cosy nights in.
There are also beautifully handcrafted features throughout the property, from the wooden floors and walls that run throughout to a breath-taking dining table and stone cut wash basin.
Elsewhere in the treehouse is a kitchen area with cooking facilities, whilst the double bedroom offers panoramic views of every angle of the surrounding countryside.
This property is perfect for a couple’s retreat, but the pull-out sofa bed means it is equally suitable for families or larger groups and the underfloor heating ensures everyone will be cosy during their stay.
If you’re lucky enough to experience warm weather during the duration of your stay, then why not take advantage of the two elevated sundecks on long summer’s evenings? If you’re lucky you may even spot some local deer drinking from the pond below.
Guests are ensured peace and tranquillity during their stay with the main house at Cheriton, up the hill, being the only other property in sight.
However, if you did want to leave your comfortable surroundings then there is more than enough to keep you entertained nearby.
The marvellous Stourhead National Trust estate is not far away whilst there are plenty of great countryside walks in the surrounding Shaftesbury area.
If shopping is more up your street than the natural world then not to worry, the vibrant towns of Bruton and Frome are only a short drive away and offer an array of independent boutiques and eateries in addition to world-renowned art gallery, Hauser and Wirth.
