Somerset has it all and staying in one of the best treehouses in Somerset would be a fantastic way to make your UK holiday even more memorable.
Somerset is a beautiful county in the South West of England, with so much to see, do and explore. If you haven’t been already, then it should definitely be on your bucket list.
Many people travel to Somerset each year to go to the UK’s biggest and best music festival, Glastonbury. But there is so much more to this beautiful county, and it is worth visiting year-round.
Glastonbury village is, when not in festival mode, a quaint British town with a ruined abbey and tor, offering views across three counties, and Wales. It is spectacular in its own right.
Aside from Glastonbury, Somerset is also home to Exmoor National Park, Cheddar Gorge and Mendip Hills AONB.
All of these locations are great for outdoor lovers and keen walkers, offering hiking trails, bike paths and stunning views.
If you’re looking for something a bit more relaxing, head to Somerset’s coastline and enjoy a day at the beach. Somerset has a place in our hearts as its where the Tiny Home Hub are actually based!
So, let’s dive in and take a look at the 10 Best Treehouses in Somerset.
1. Dabinett Treehouse
First up on our list of the best treehouses in Somerset we have Dabinett Treehouse. Dabinett Treehouse is a stunning piece of design, a cabin on stilts nestled high in the trees. This space offers expansive views, luxury experience and an outdoor bath.
If you’re looking for a tranquil, romantic retreat, then Dabinett is it. Much more decadent than your regular treehouse, it’s like a 5-star hotel in the trees.
In the bedroom at the back of the treehouse is a king-size bed, perfect for spreading out in after a day exploring. A bathroom with a drench shower and flushing loo, kitchenette and a cosy lounge next to the wood-burning stove make up the rest of the space.
Taking up the end wall is an oval window, giving you stunning views across the Somerset levels that you can see from every point in the treehouse.
Out of the front door and onto the decking area, you’ll find a BBQ for alfresco meals, a dining area and, of course, the bathtub. I can’t think of a better way to end the day than a hot bath under the stars.
If you ever want to leave your little slice of heaven, there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Take a walk in the nearby Shapwick Heath National Nature Reserve, visit Wells Cathedral or head to Glastonbury Tor for a day trip. As a bonus, there are three pubs to choose from in walking distance, great for a meal or a pint.
2. Harptree Treehouse
Located on the same property as Dabinett Treehouse, but wildly different in design, Harptree Tree House has more of a traditional feel. This round cabin in the trees is like a miniature country cottage, cosy warm and inviting.
Two roundhouses make up the treehouse, creating a unique figure of eight shape. From the outside, it looks like a tiny castle and inside the ceilings make an impressive feature. Plenty of windows allow light and fresh air to flood the space and a wood-burning stove keeps you warm, whatever the weather.
This treehouse is split into two rooms, one in each circular space. The first room is dedicated to the bedroom and has a huge king-size bed and a lovely free-standing copper bathtub; there is also an en-suite bathroom with flushing loo and shower.
Next door is the living space with a full kitchen and lounge area, next to the wood-burning stove.
The historic city of Bath is a short drive away, where you can explore the ancient Roman Baths, or take a dip in the more modern rooftop spa. If you’re more of an outdoorsy person, head to the Mendip Hills nearby for some walking or try your hand at water sports at Chew Valley Lake.
3. The Tree Tent
Up next on our list of the best treehouses in Somerset we have The Tree Tent. If you’re looking for adventure and want to sway with the wind, then this is the one for you.
The bedroom pod is a spherical room, suspended in the trees. Accessible only by a rope ladder, heading in for the night is an experience in itself. Although made from canvas, this hanging room is more luxurious than your average tent.
A wood-burner keeps it warm, and there is a double bed for a comfortable nights sleep. Best of all, the ceiling is clear so you can see through and watch the branches sway, reminding you that you’re up in the trees.
Across the rope bridge is a private indoor/outdoor kitchen, bathroom and decking area. You’ll find everything you need to whip up a good meal, and there is hot running water for the luxurious shower. There is also a fire pit to enjoy in the evenings.
Situated on a family farm, The Tree Tent offers wonderful views across the Mendip Hills. Leisurely walks and more strenuous hikes start straight from your doorstep or head out in the car to reach all the wonders of Somerset.
4. Lavender Hill Treehouse
Lavender Hill Treehouse is definitely the most luxurious entry on our list of the best treehouses in Somerset. Not only do you have the spacious inside area but also three outdoor decks, a private jacuzzi and the use of an indoor pool.
This treehouse is large enough to be as well equipped as any other holiday home and can host up to five people. Two bedrooms give the adults and kids some privacy, with the master bedroom upstairs and kids bunk room downstairs. Also downstairs is an open plan living space with full kitchen, dining table and lounge with sofas, TV and wood-burner.
Outside, head out on to the decking in the trees and enjoy spectacular views across the farm and Somerset countryside. There is also room to eat around the outdoor table, which is next to the jacuzzi. As well as the decking, Lavender Hill Treehouse also has its own private garden where you can relax.
This location is perfect for any outdoor lovers, with the coast just a short drive away. There you can walk along the cliffs or jump into the sea, knowing you have a hot tub to warm you up again when you get back! Also nearby is Bath and lots of pretty towns and villages, great for a day out.
5. Orchard Rooms Treehouse

This treehouse is the ideal spot if you’re looking for somewhere to relax, remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of life and reconnect with yourself.

Inside, you’ll find a contemporary area, finished to the highest standard and with an eye for detail. There is a kitchenette, living room, double bedroom and bathroom.
Central heating is available through the treehouse, making this a good location year-round. While there is a shower in the bathroom, the outdoor shower is an experience in itself and well worth trying!

7. Cheriton Treehouse
Cheriton Treehouse is a delightful wooden cabin in the trees that blends into the mature oak tree it sits in. Shingles and cladding adorning the exterior walls give this treehouse a magical and whimsical look.
Inside and the wooden theme continues, cocooning you in the curved, natural space. The main living area has a kitchen for preparing quick meals and a sofa, nicely positioned in front of the wood-burning stove.
Large windows offer stunning views across the countryside and can be enjoyed from the warmth of the treehouse.
Cheriton Treehouse can accommodate up to three people, two in the main bedroom and a child on the living room’s sofa bed.
The bedroom is a gorgeous room, somewhere to sink into and relax. Not only is there a comfy double bed, but also a copper bathtub. Large windows and skylights give you views in every direction in the bedroom, to be enjoyed from bed or in the bath!
If you ever decide to leave this haven, there is much to explore nearby. As well as your local pub, a short walk away you can also explore Sherborne, Bath and Frome. Or, enjoy nature on one of the countryside’s many trails or book yourself a hot air balloon ride to see it from the skies!
8. Old Mill Treehouse
At number eight on our list of the best treehouses in Somerset, we have Old Mill Treehouse. This treehouse is nestled into the landscape and the trees that surround it. You couldn’t get any closer to nature.

There are no cooking facilities at the Old Mill Treehouse. Instead, breakfast and coffee are delivered to your door in the mornings.

9. The Pod
The Pod is a funky and modern treehouse, that can accommodate up to four guests. Looking slightly like an alien UFO has landed on earth, The Pod is full of quirky charm if you want something a bit different.
