Nr Bath, Somerset
Stylish magical treehouse on the edge of a sleepy Somerset village but just a few miles from Bath.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
Fulfil your childhood fantasies and set out on a magical, treetop adventure at this seriously grown-up treehouse amongst Somerset’s lush, country pastures. Hidden seven miles from historic Bath in the sleepy village of Philip St Norton, the Old Mill Treehouse will capture your imagination. Prepare for birdsong in the morning and breakfast on the balcony, along with Champagne at nightfall amongst the moonlit canopy.
The luxury treehouse is set within an acre of rural, country gardens and is nestled past a sparkling stream at the end of a meandering pathway. Perched up on stilts and woven around thick woodland branches, it has been carefully designed to blend in with its natural surroundings.
Behind its fairy tale exterior lies an indulgent, treetop pad complete with a stylish boudoir and a sleek en-suite bathroom. Picture vintage leather sofas and a soothing colour palette, along with plush fur rugs and inspirational artwork. Pad across the chic wooden floors to your designer en-suite bathroom, where you’ll find a deluxe, power shower with lashings of hot water. Wrap up in the thick, fluffy towels and curl up in your sink-in double bed, listening to the silence of the country and planning your days ahead.
In the mornings, you can sit out amongst the tranquil, forest canopy devouring the delicious breakfast treats you'll find on arrival. Watch for the cheeky, little squirrels or the colourful woodpeckers or the prancing deer and woodland pheasants. In the evenings, you can sit out amongst your twinkling lights, watching the nocturnal woodland creatures as they spring into life. If it’s too cold to sit out then you can even hide away indoors, turning up the heating and watching your favourite TV shows.
If you can tear yourself away from the comfort of your treehouse then there are plenty of adventures to be had in the local area. Embark on long, rural walks amongst the rugged Somerset countryside, or visit the beautiful city of Bath with its fascinating architecture. As there’s no treehouse kitchen, you have an excuse to dine out so visit one of the Michelin-starred restaurants before heading back.
Closer to home, you can enjoy laidback village life, wandering the chocolate-box streets and sampling the farm shop delights. The iconic George Inn is also just a five minute walk away and offers an array of hearty, home-cooked meals and locally-brewed ales.

We were given this break by a friend after he could no longer make it. Wasn't sure what to expect as we've never stayed anywhere like this before but it was absolutely amazing! Such a peaceful and quiet place, but close enough to get to civilization should you wish. The treehouse itself was beautiful, the bed was comfy and all the little touches made a difference (milk in the fridge, torches in the drawer, toiletries etc). The only small drawback was there was a small pond of stagnant water at the side of the treehouse which means LOTS of mosquitoes and midges which are annoying when you're trying to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.

Writing this whilst sat on the balcony of this beautiful retreat. An amazing and magical treehouse with many lovely touches and attention to detail! Clean, warm and luxurious. We had a lovely night of peace and tranquillity in the trees! Highly recommended - Thank you.

Nice hosts who provide a lovely continental breakfast. The treehouse is warm even in winter and is situated in a charming village that has two dog-friendly pubs right opposite each other. Both pubs serve good food.

What can I say... my partner and I, celebrated a big birthday in the treehouse. A wonderful experience it was too! The decor is beautiful, with constant reminders of where you are. The attention to detail was perfect, to milk in the fridge and breakfast placed in a basket outside your door in the morning, we didnâ€™t have to worry about a thing. We were so lucky to experience the squirrels and had the best time! Thank you Tony & Beverley :)

Such a find! The Treehouse far exceeded our expectations - we didn’t want to leave. The owners are friendly and bring the breakfast basket in the morning, leaving it without disturbing you. There is an eating area underneath the Treehouse with a table and chairs and blankets - if you wanted to eat al fresco. We will definitely be going back, we loved it. There are even monkey nuts to hand feed the squirrels who appear frequently. The nearby Inn is lovely for food and the 10 minute walk there/back at night is covered by the torches provided. A-Max-Ing!!!!!
