4th July 2017

Looking to get closer to nature this summer? Why not spend a few nights sky high in the wonderful Bensfield Treehouse, situated near Wadhurst in East Sussex. 

Treehouse accommodation has seen a huge rise in popularity in recent years, as people seek more unique and adventurous experiences for their money, and the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of city life in order to explore the UK’s beautiful countryside.

Bensfield Treehouse ticks all of these boxes whilst offering a stylish yet comfortable setting, whether you’re in search of a walking holiday, relaxing retreat or romantic getaway.

The treehouse

The adventure begins with a journey across the 24 metre long rope bridge to the magnificent oak tree around which Bensfield Treehouse is built.

The spacious interiors have been furnished beautifully, offering an inviting atmosphere that’s bright and airy in the day and warm and cosy at night. You’ll find a super kingsize bed, en suite and fully equipped kitchen, along with amenities such as WI-FI, television and central heating, ensuring your stay is a comfortable one. Also waiting for you will be a complementary hamper filled with all the ingredients for a delicious breakfast or brunch, including fresh apple juice, eggs, sausages and bacon (a vegetarian option is available).

Surrounding the house is an expansive private sundeck with tables and chairs, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The treehouse is situated in a picturesque yet secluded area of land, allowing you to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature in your own private treetop getaway.
