Glamping in tree houses is a dream that has come true, especially for many of us who didn’t get the opportunity to build or have our own tree house throughout our childhood. It seems that all great things make their comeback one way or another, and what better way to spend a weekend retreat full of relaxation and peace? This is definitely an upcoming trend the UK can get behind, and it’s already made it international.
France has created mystical and magical castle tree houses that could often be described as luxury hotels in the treetops. Italy is also a contender for some of the most beautiful and breath-taking tree house designs. In Tuscia, an organic farm offers two environmentally friendly tree houses that feature spectacular views on the Italian landscape.
There are many tree house designs available throughout the country and internationally. So, whether you’re looking for a romantic break away with a significant other, or you’re wanting to do something different with friends and family, the choice is yours.
Tents where the structure compromises of a latticework of pieces of wood or bamboo. Glamping is all about getting back to nature and exploring the great outdoors, Yurts are there for comfort, tranquillity and a good night’s sleep! There are stunning Yurts all over the UK and Europe hidden in forests. These structures and designs are not only on the rise for outdoor travel because of their uniqueness, but also because they make affordable rentals for all year long travel.
If you’re planning to stay in a Yurt during the harsh, frigid winters (we know how British weather can be), we definitely recommend being prepared for the weather, from packing warm clothes to choosing the right country boots. If you are more suited towards the summer, Yurts have the ability to keep cool during heatwave seasons, so there isn’t really anything they can’t do.
There is an authentic Mongolian-style yurt for everyone to call their own – get your search on now!
Tipis are quite similar to Yurts; however, they are cone-shaped tents. Traditionally, they are made of animal skins upon wooden poles with a canvas covering. If you consider yourself to be a bit of a traditionalist, you have to try staying in a tipi at least once! They’re quite popular with small families or those with pets, as they’re ideal for pets to roam freely and safely nearby.
Pets deserve some TLC too!
The Devon Hotspot
Are you ready for this?
Cornwall, once known as the most popular destination for glamping and well, all around seaside holidays and retreats, has been beaten by Devon for the first time in glamping history. Devon is home to some of the most innovative treehouse and yurt designs and because of this, even more, additions are in the progress for this year.
Take the Stargazer Treehouse, for example, a retreat totally inspired by the beauty of nature and it’s surroundings. With a captivating structure, it’s one of the most popular and anticipated treehouses throughout the nation. You can find some peace by lakes or spend the night stargazing – it’s truly something else!
In the last few years, there has been a great push for sustainability and eco-efficiency in order to save the planet and ultimately reduce our carbon footprint. This means changing some aspects of our lifestyle, the way we buy, where we buy from and so on. Glamping is exceptionally popular with millennials, and we expect it’s going to get even more popularity with eco-friendly tree houses, log cabins, tipis, and holiday homes.
An eco-friendly treehouse pushes the boundaries of architectural design. It incorporates sustainable concepts to work with, not against, nature. It collects water and regulates temperature. Pretty incredible, right? Architects have some work to do, and we’re sure this sustainable tree house, in particular, will give them the inspiration and drive to be the future of home building.
