This dream holiday doesn’t have to be a pie in the sky idea, as some beautiful treetop accommodations have started springing up all over the UK, transforming dreams into reality. Here are some gorgeous treehouses in Powys to get your treehouse holiday search off on the right foot!

Squirrels Nest Treehouses

Squirrels Nest comprises of three absolutely stunning treehouses which are set on a working farm in rural Powys in Mid Wales. Trawscwm Treehouse is big enough to accommodate two adults and two children over six years old. The interior feels rustic and luxurious while being kitted out with everything you could possibly need to spend a couple of nights in the treetops. Cadwollen’s treehouse is a great option if you want to live out your childhood dreams without any children in tow, as it sleeps two adults (and a baby). You’ll find a freestanding copper tub with a view, and an outdoor shower – really completing the amazing experience. The biggest treehouse on the Squirrels Nest site is Prince Llewelyn Treehouse which sleeps up to seven people – perfect for bigger family gatherings!

Living-Room Treehouses

Living-Room Treehouses comprise of six treehouses in Powys. The treehouses are designed carefully to blend in with their woodland surroundings, and they are perfect for a memorable and truly magical family getaway. All treehouses are furnished with a double bed and fold out bunk beds, meaning they are great for a family of four. An extra child can be accommodated for too if needed. A wonderful bonus to the Living-Room treehouses is the eco-friendly aspect of any stay – composting loos and spring water showers are wonderful to see! Please be aware that Living-Room treehouses are up to 30ft above ground via steps, so this isn’t necessarily an accessible option.

Nyth Barcud Treehouse

Nyth Barcud Treehouse is a ground level treehouse that sleeps two adults and two children. The simple interior of the dwelling is a perfect contrast to the luscious leafy greens that can be seen out of every door and window. It’s wonderful to see that a ramp can be provided and that all doorways are wider than 81cm. The entire treehouse is also located on one level, making this a truly wonderful option for anyone who needs to consider accessibility.

Oaken Fort

Oaken Fort isn’t strictly a treehouse. Rather, it’s a wooden fort nestled away in the Powys countryside with a very ‘treehouse’ vibe. Oaken Fort combines childhood dreams of forts and treehouses with a touch of real luxury, making it a very special location for a getaway either with or without the kids. There is one bedroom with a double bed and bunk beds, and a cosy living area perfect for relaxing and playing. The views around Oaken Fort are jaw-droppingly beautiful, and once the kids have gone to sleep, the grown-ups can indulge in a dip in the hot tub.
