The Woodman's Treehouse - Luxury Treehouse In Dorset For A London Weekend GetawayThe Woodman's  
Treehouse

Did you dream of living in a treehouse as a child? Well, the Woodman's Treehouse in Dorset, UK, is exactly like that except a lot fancier and designer-looking than your scraped-knee eight-year-old self had imagined.

Set in the canopy of an old oak, Woodman's Treehouse is playful and luxurious at the same time. Made entirely of wood and accessible only through a rope bridge, it takes inspiration from the adventure story treehouses. Yet, at the same time, it features such high-end elements as a copper hot tub on the upper deck or a rotating fireplace that turn the childhood dream into an adult's playground.

With its well-equipped kitchen (plus a wood-fired pizza oven, because why not), the Treehouse is self-sustained and makes for a great weekend break from the city life (it's only a three-hour drive away from London). The activities are simple but delightful. Whether it's staring at the blue sky through the skylight over your bed, swinging in a hammock on the deck, enjoying the outdoor hot shower, or indulging in a treehouse sauna. If you are into something more active, try Guy Mallinson's Crafty Camping woodworking courses.

This is an excellent example of the "Live and let live" type of architecture. The designers built the treehouse around an ancient tree instead of cutting it down.

Do not let the design fool you. These pieces of wood are not for throwing them into the firepit but for aesthetics.
