Staying in one of the best treehouses in Devon is the perfect way to add some romance to your trip away.
Treehouses are fun, unique and a great way to make your holiday memorable. While staying in a treehouse anywhere is an exciting adventure, Devon has so much to offer, ensuring your treehouse accommodation isn’t the only thing to look forward to.
Devon is a beautiful county in the South-West of England and is home to miles of breathtaking coastline.
The Jurassic Coast, which should be on your bucket list, boasts amazing white cliffs, blue waters and sandy beaches. Here you can sunbathe, swim or surf to your heart’s content.
Moving away from the coast, Devon is also home to several National Parks, including Dartmoor and Exmoor. Both gorgeous locations offer plenty of walks across green meadows and through thick woodland.
If you’re looking for something more relaxing then visit one of Devon’s many castles or quaint towns and be sure to try the classic Devonshire Cream Tea!

3. Black Wolf Treehouse
Black Wolf Tree House definitely deserves a spot on our list of the best treehouses in Devon. It’s a spectacular piece of design with even more amazing views out over the treetops.
Located within 13 acres of deciduous woodland; green trees fill the skyline. Beyond this, you can just make out the rolling hills of the Devonshire countryside. Even better, you don’t even need to be outside to take in the view. Wall to wall windows and bi-folding doors allow you to relax in bed while enjoying the landscape.

5. The Nest
We’re halfway through our list of the best treehouses in Devon and up next we have The Nest. If you dreamt of having a treehouse as a child, then you probably would have visualised something like The Nest. It is the quintessential cabin in the trees.
Set in two and a half acres of private woodland; this spot is a private sanctuary that encourages rest, relaxation and reconnection to nature.

6. Woodsman’s Wagon Treehouse
The Woodsman’s Wagon has been lovingly handcrafted by owner Matt to make the most of the eight acres of woodland it sits in. To reach the wagon in the trees, you first need to cross a bridge, adding to the secluded feeling and bringing a touch of adventure to your arrival.
Once you’ve made it safely across the bridge, you arrive at your beautiful tiny home. A large balcony area gives you plenty of space to chill out in the treetops before you head inside for the evening.
From the balcony, you can observe nature and the animals that pass through the woodland, including foxes, deer and badgers!
Inside, the treehouse is just as magical. The rustic style of the wagon is cosy and connects you to your location. There is everything you need to be comfortable, including a bed, kitchen and a full bathroom- with a bath!
If you’d rather spend most of your time outside, then make use of the BBQ, fire pit and outdoor shower.
If you decide to leave your private woodland, then there is much to see in the surrounding area.
Dartmoor is just five miles away where you can enjoy hiking, or hire a bike and go riding through the stunning scenery. Also nearby are castles, botanical gardens and a 2000-year-old tree!
7. Cleave Treehouse
If you’re looking for a spot of luxury, then Cleave Treehouse at number seven on our list of the best treehouses in Devon is the one for you. This tiny home has all the benefits and trimmings of a five-star hotel while being up in the trees.

8. The Den Treehouse
The Den is the second treehouse on our list that is located at Pickwell Manor, after Hideaway at number four. So, if you’re looking to go away with friends then renting both treehouses at once could be a good option for you.
While the treehouses share a location, they are entirely different in design. The Den is expansive and provides lots of space to spread out and enjoy.
Accommodating up to four people, in separate rooms, this is a fantastic location for a unique family holiday that the kids will remember. Parents can enjoy some privacy in a cosy double bed, while kids have full-sized bunk beds next door.
As well as the bedrooms, this treehouse has a stylish and contemporary kitchen, living room and full bathroom. To top it all off, you even have your own private hot tub on the balcony outside. Here you can soak in the bubbles under the stars- heaven!
If you ever decide to leave the grounds of the Manor that has a range of activities on offer, the beach is within walking distance. Spend your days soaking in the summer sun, playing in the sand and cooling off in the sea before returning home to your den in the trees.
9. The Pheasant’s Retreat
The Pheasant’s retreat may look like a UFO landing site, but it is, in fact, the next treehouse on our list of the best treehouses in the UK. This collection of cool cabins and pods hanging in the trees could be the perfect spot for your next Devon getaway.
The white spherical pod hanging in the trees is your bedroom area. Inside are two single beds that convert into sofas, giving you space to chill inside during the day.
Along from the bedroom pod is a separate bathroom cabin with a flushing toilet and shower. There is also a sheltered outdoor kitchen to add some home comforts to your stay.
The outdoor area this treehouse offers stands out from the crowd, with plenty of space to enjoy. Fire up the BBQ and spend long summer nights outside enjoying each other’s company and the central fire pit. Even better is the wood-fired hot tub where you can soak while watching the stars.
This treehouse is located at Dunscombe Farm, where you can enjoy a tour courtesy of the owners. There are also plenty of walks straight from your front door, so you can keep driving to a minimum if you want to.

10. Romantic Treehouse Retreat
Last but not least, on our list of the best treehouses in Devon, we have this stunning Romantic Retreat. This luxurious treehouse is a great place to reconnect not only with nature but also with each other.
Inside the treehouse there is enough room to spread out and to have separate spaces for the bedroom, kitchen, living room and bathroom.
These areas inspire calm and relaxation and mean you can avoid clutter, keeping cooking away from everything else. The interior is finished to the highest standard and feels more like a hotel than a treehouse.
The gorgeous contemporary design of this treehouse runs through every interior space. Little touches such as framed plants and leaves connect you back to the outside, as does the large windows and double doors.
A large balcony means you can spend most of your time outside where you can enjoy the BBQ and views across the woodland.
If you’re looking for a beach break, then this Romantic Treehouse Retreat could be good for you as it is just a fifteen-minute walk from the coast.
The closest beach, Lee Bay, offers rocky pools and a sandy beach at low tide. For any surfers amongst us, head to Woolacombe, just ten minutes away and a surfers paradise.
