The stunning Woodman’s Treehouse is set in idyllic surroundings in the beautiful county of Dorset in England.
The luxurious treehouse rental offers an adult only experience in a unique and special location. The isolated accommodation can be found in a peaceful woodland setting in West Dorset, just 10 miles away from the famous Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site.
The Woodman’s Treehouse is award winning too, picking up the RIBA South West award and was named ‘Small Project of the Year.’ This very special treehouse has also featured on the popular television shows, Grand Designs and George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.
The Woodman’s Treehouse is on a luxury glamping site that also offers other unique accommodations such as a cosy bell tent, yurts, a tipi or a shepherd’s hut.
But seclusion and privacy is on offer as the glamping accommodation is set within 10 acres of private woodland.
The treehouse itself is completely private and is set up high in the branches of a veteran oak tree.
The Woodman is a luxury treehouse, with highlights including a private sauna and hot tub on the upper deck, a revolving woodburner and an open air tree-shower (with endless hot water!)
Rather than being bolted to the branches, the Woodman’s Treehouse is built on long stilts. This ensures that the treehouse does not stress the trees whilst still allowing guests the privilege of experiencing the beauty of the woodland without compromising the surrounding environment.

Pan Treetop Cabins, Norway

Pan Treetop Cabins offer guests the opportunity to experience the true Norwegian wilderness, located in Finnskogen, a 2-hour drive from Oslo, and just 20 minutes from the Swedish border.
Finnskogen is in the perfect location for experiencing unique animal life, as well as the peace and quiet of the forest.
The award-winning cabins in Norway are suitable for all nature lovers, with accommodations to suit couples, families and large groups.
Everything has been considered during the design of the Pan Treetop Cabins – the angle and exact location of the cabins have been placed to ensure they experience optimal natural light and nature during all times.
The large glass windows allow an abundance of natural light to flow through that not only create a special place to relax but also, heat up the cabins naturally, reducing the need to rely on other energy sources.
Incredible sunsets can also be experienced from the cabins as the day slowly turns into night across the surrounding forest.
Every effort has been made in the design of the cabins to respect the local environment with;
“The underlying thought is that you should be able to remove the cabins and not be able to see any trace of human activity be left behind.”
At a height of 8 meters from the ground, the cabins are not attached to any trees. Instead, they are placed on top of four pillars that are anchored to the natural rocky ground below. This helps to ensure that the treetop cabins will withstand the force of more than two hurricanes, as well as other typical weather conditions that may occur in the area.
The cabins can sleep up to 6 people in 4 single beds and 1 double bed. The cabins have a fully equipped kitchen, electricity and water.
Outdoor enthusiasts will never want to leave Pan Treetop Cabin. Activities include forest yoga, animal safaris, animal tracking, paddle boarding to name a few!
