This Treehouse Is Probably Nicer Than Where You Live

Do you have a sauna, hot tub and pizza oven? In a tree?

About 215 miles south of Robin Hood’s lofted lair in Sherwood Forest, a British designer has built a luxury treehouse for a new generation of merry men and women to visit.

Created by Guy Mallinson, the Woodman’s Treehouse in Dorset is a two-story private retreat located nearly 30 feet off the ground in a 200-year-old oak tree at an adults-only glamping site.

Completed over the course of five months, Mallinson’s creation has creature comforts like a sauna, hot tub, open air tree-shower, roof deck, wood-fired pizza oven and a revolving stove.

It also features a stainless steel slide in place of the original plan for a spiral staircase. Nice.

A sustainable structure that incorporates “materials that are either found or made in the woods,” the Woodman’s Treehouse doesn’t touch the surrounding trees, which allows “rainwater to run down the stems and wildlife to travel up and down the delicate ecosystem of the oak tree.”

The $200k treehouse rents for about $400 a night (about the same as a luxe Miami treehouse), and while reservations are going faster than crumpets at teatime, you can try to book one here.
