What could be better than having a treehouse as a kid? Having a treehouse as an adult of course! Now that can be a reality as treehouse holidays in Wales are becoming increasingly popular as a quirky alternative to hotels. In this article, I’ll share 14 of my top picks.
1. Squirrel’s Nest Retreats
Location: Llandrindod Wells, Powys, Mid Wales
- Hot tub
- Decking with balcony
- WIFI included
Best for: A luxurious break with friends
Squirrel’s Nest Retreats offer three different treehouses on their site, all fitted out in association with Dunelm, set in a stunning 900-acre site. The accommodation offers bespoke buildings each with high-end interiors, a hot tub on the decking and amazing views across the site.
Complimentary items like muesli, tea, and coffee (pods and ground) are a nice touch, and the properties are well-insulated to keep everyone comfy. Each treehouse is unique, offering different accommodation options depending on group size – from a retreat for couples, up to a group size of 7.
There is a two-night minimum booking for each treehouse, and pets are not allowed due to the site being rural farmland, with the obvious risk to livestock and neighbouring farms.
2. Living-Room Treehouses
Location: Machynlleth, Powys, Mid Wales
Best for: Families (with children aged 4+) or couples looking for a romantic break
- Luxurious double bed and fold-down bunk beds
- Wood-burning stove
- No electricity, but lanterns and tea lights are provided
Living-room Treehouses offer six stunning authentic treehouses in a large woodland, on a sheep farm in Mid Wales. Each treehouse is fully insulated and features a wood-burning stove, heating the treehouse and keeping it cosy all year round.
The site welcomes families, comfortably sleeping two adults and two children, but a minimum age of 4 is recommended for children, due to the accessibility of the treehouses.
There is no electricity, so whilst this offers a perfect digital detox opportunity, your kids may be disappointed if they don’t know about this in advance.
3. By The Wye Treehouses
Location: Hay on Wye, Powys, Mid Wales
- Family-friendly (with multiple accommodation options)
- Games and books included
Best for: Couples or families wanting an off-grid experience
These eco-friendly safari tents offer a comfortable option in a great location near the River Wye. There are five tents on this site, spread out in different spots, including tree tents.
There are different sizing options depending on the size you require (the ground tents offer up to five guests, the tree tents are for two), and all are kitted out with natural fixtures and fittings. The term ‘tent’ is probably doing these buildings a disservice, as they are all quite substantial.
Each property has an en-suite bathroom (with hot water and a power shower), and a nice open-plan living space and kitchen.
The site is off-grid, using solar power and generators to provide electricity to the site. The tree tents are smaller than the ground tents, but multiple tents can be booked for group or family getaways.
4. Templar Treehouse
Location: Pembrokeshire, West Wales
- Multiple accommodation options onsite
- Treehouse is situated within its own garden, with pond
- Private hot tub
Best for: Small families with young children.
Templar Treehouse has been built from recycled and reused treasures. There is also a gypsy caravan and a ‘UFO’ onsite, for larger groups to book multiple accommodations at once.
The treehouse is nicely kitted out, from a wood-burning stove to a double bed with merino wool bedding, and full-length windows – there are many nice touches to this smart space. It’s situated within a private garden with a pond and a rowing boat (life jackets included), the bathroom and kitchen are well-stocked, and a private hot tub is there for you to enjoy.
The size of the treehouse itself is limited, meaning the bed is within the open living space, and small children only are recommended for the mezzanine sleeping space, due to the low head height.
There are some nice quirky surprises within this accommodation, including a slide to make a quick exit to the ground!
5. Heartwood Treehouse
Location: Llangynyw, Powys, Mid Wales
- Luxurious adult-only accommodation
- Wood-fired hot tub
- Stunning views
Best for: Couples celebrating a special occasion
This stunning one-bedroom property features high-end fixtures and fittings, and is nestled within beautiful Mid Wales. Not only do you get a wood-fired hot tub and a fully equipped fitted kitchen, but the property also features floor-to-ceiling glass doors, and a bespoke tree trunk dining table!
A gas BBQ is included for al fresco dining, and you can find Lake Vyrnwy and Snowdonia National Park less than an hour’s drive away.
This is quite a distance from some of the more basic options we have mentioned, and as such, it is a more expensive choice. This would however be perfect for a special occasion, or as a luxurious break.
6. Cuckoos Hideaway
Location: Nantcoy, Ceredigion, West Wales
- Hot tub
- Outdoor breakfast bar
- Upstairs reading nook
Best for: A romantic break to unwind
Cuckoo’s Hideaway provides a stunning location in West Wales for an ideal romantic treehouse getaway for two. The property is kitted out with everything you need, from a hot tub and multiple balconies, to a pizza oven, and a reading nook which sounds amazing.
It’s well placed for visits to Aberaeron, and to explore the other lovely villages and towns around West Wales. You could even take a trip on the steam train near Devil’s Bridge, or try to spot dolphins off the coast.
This property is not suitable for pets or children, and it is based on working farmland, so you may hear the odd animal noise or distant machinery.
Location: Welshpool, Powys, Mid Wales
Best for: A romantic getaway (adults-only)
- Gas BBQ and fire pit
- High end fully fitted kitchen
- Wood-burning hot tub
Oaklands features Safari Lodges and a stunning handcrafted luxury treehouse. This site is close to the natural wonders of Snowdon, sleeping up to five people, and features some stunning views.
You get the usual luxuries you might expect at home, and also some classy features: from under-floor bathroom heating to a king-sized bed with Hypnos mattress and Egyptian linen. You can even request extras on your booking, such as a bottle of bubbly on arrival.
This is an adult-only site, so it will not be the place for your family break. There is also no Wi-Fi, so those Insta snaps of this stunning location may have to wait until you get home.
8. Ty Coeden
Location: Builth Wells, Powys, Mid Wales
- Private decking
- TV and DVD player
Best for: A group of friends of a family getaway
Ty Coeden is a substantial property consisting of three linked tree houses, connected by steps and decks. This unusual set-up offers a great big space for bigger parties, sleeping up to six people in total.
The treehouses blend beautifully into the trees and surrounding nature, and are well appointed, with a TV and DVD player, kitchenette inside, and a communal BBQ and pizza oven offered nearby.

9. Anglesey Coast Treehouse
Location: Anglesey, North Wales
- Indoor fireplace and outdoor firepit
- Private balcony
Best for: Nature lovers
This beautifully-built treehouse, suitable for two guests, looks like a posh apartment from the inside, but it is situated in the middle of a natural environment, attracting a variety of wildlife and birds. There are even peacocks wandering about onsite.
The property is built around a tree and includes a kitchen, TV, microwave and free parking. You also get the essentials, like towels and bed linen included for your stay.
The backyard is shared, and there is no hot tub, but for nature lovers looking for a break away from the chaos of the day-to-day, it could be an ideal spot.
10. Red Kite Tree Tents
Location: Newbridge-on-Wye, Powys, Mid Wales
- Suspended tree tents, as seen on TV!
- Each based in private woodland
- Fire pit and outdoor kitchen included
Best for: A quirky adventurous break
The ‘Red Kite Tree Tents’ look a bit like giant balloons in the tree line. They are a true engineering achievement and were featured on ‘George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces’ television show in recent years. There are three tents, meaning multiple accommodations can be offered for groups, with a maximum of two people per tent.
Each tent is suspended high in a private woodland, giving you the opportunity for a uniquely private and peaceful break.
There is no phone signal on-site, and nearby shops are around a ten-minute drive away. Whilst this may appear a basic option, you will receive the essentials, like bed linen, towels and kindling, on arrival.
11. Ceirw Treehouse
Location: Conwy, North Wales
- View of the rivers and mountains
- Lots of wildlife in the surrounding area
Best for: A night away with a loved one or a mate
The stunning Ceirw one-bed treehouse is small, but packs a punch! Based near Snowdonia, it comes with electricity, a fridge and a two-ring hob.
It’s based in very natural surroundings, with pygmy goats, hens and cockerels onsite, and surrounding wildlife cameras have even picked up foxes, minks, badgers and otters.
There is no shower, but there is hot and cold water, and a toilet and sink within the cosy space. Power comes from solar electricity, and water from a borehole, and it’s clear that the owners embrace the natural environment that this accommodation is based within.
12. Copse Camp Treehouse

- Pet friendly
- Based within a three-hundred-acre site

This magical little space looks straight out of an adventure playground. This off-grid beauty is based on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers amazing views from its timber-framed cabin.
A rope bridge connects the cabin to an outdoor kitchen area, and a separate gypsy caravan is on-site which can be used as an additional bedroom, or as a games room. ‘Copse Camp’ is heated by a wood-burner (wood is provided), and it offers the combination of an adventurous outdoor experience, but with luxuries included like soft bed linen and fluffy towels, and even a hot tub.
There is only one bedroom and one bathroom, so it will be better for a romantic break than a family holiday. There is no Wifi, but you can get a mobile signal onsite.

The property has one bedroom and one bathroom, and is kitted out with solar power and a wood-burning stove, enabling an almost-zero carbon footprint. It includes a well-appointed kitchen, ensuite, roaring wood-burner, and a king-sized bed. An outdoor ‘treetop shower’ is a nice feature, and it is well placed to explore the wonders of West Wales.

14. Cabin In The Treetops
Location: Abergwesyn, Mid Wales
- South-facing terrace

A BBQ is included on the terrace, and the property has an electric hob, and an en-suite with a shower.
Some of the ceilings within the property are low, and it is said not to be recommended for people taller than 6’2. It is a good chance for a digital detox, with no Wifi or mobile signal onsite.
