The Woodman’s Treehouse Has Everything You Want, Including a Pizza Oven

Treehouses were an such integral part of childhood for so many that it’s no wonder the trend of treehouses for adults has taken off. There’s just something exciting and fun about hanging out in a shelter in the treetops. And excitement and fun are the name of the game for The Woodman’s Treehouse – a luxury cabin in a tree in West Dorset, United Kingdom.

A collaboration between master craftsman Guy Mallison and bridge architect Keith Brownlie, The Woodman’s Treehouse is a two-story cabin supported and surrounded by old oak trees. There is fun and whimsy throughout the treehouse, along with the high level of craftsmanship you would expect from such a collaboration. Inside and out, the cabin offers high style, luxury, and the exact amount of excitement you want from a stay in a treehouse.

Approaching the entry via a suspension bridge, the high level of expert design and architecture is immediately on display. Chestnut wood log stacks frame the front door, which features a porthole window and a steam engine steering wheel in place of a door knob – the first bit of fun hinting at what awaits you inside. The boxy shape of the exterior belies an intriguing interior – a round central room, anchored by a rotating fireplace.

The living spaces of the cabin, including a kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom, and private sauna are laid out around the circular main area. The central wood-burning fireplace spins around, allowing you to point it where you need it. The bathroom features a large copper soaking tub surrounded by black, stained-wood accent walls while the sitting area includes stylish leather arm chairs. The bedroom, which sleeps two, is a bright white space, contrasting with the black bathroom. A central skylight above the bed allows in natural light and views up through the forest canopy.

While the inside of the treehouse is a great place to unwind, the fun happens outside. The back deck includes hammocks for relaxing, an outdoor rainfall shower, a barbeque, and a wood-fired pizza oven. A spiral staircase leads up to the rooftop deck where there is a hot tub perfectly situated to take in the treetop views. Because every good treehouse has to have a slide, when you’re ready to head out into the forest for a hike, take the stainless steel slide from the main deck down to the ground.

While there are plenty of luxurious treehouse getaways around the world, The Woodman’s Treehouse speaks to our sense of adventure in a way that has us ready to pack our bags for a weekend away. Luckily booking is easy through Mallison’s website, but availability is limited, so if you want a one-of-a-kind stay in The Woodman’s Treehouse, make your reservation soon.

There’s an old credit card slogan that says, “membership has its privileges,” and nowhere is that more apparent than in the case of airport lounges. The lounges' plush spaces and perks like complimentary food and beverages make them desirable places to wait for your flight, especially when compared to the hard chairs, noise, and limited charging stations most airport gates offer.

However, to enter these coveted lounges, you typically need to be flying first class or an elite member of the airline’s frequent flyer program. But there is another way you can gain access: Some travel credit cards come with access to airport lounges as a perk, allowing you to use them anytime you travel just by showing your card.
