Who wouldn’t want to feel like James Bond? (talking mostly to our male readers here!) If you have the cashola, go and stay at the amazing treehouse suites, at Chewton Glen Hotel, in the New Forest – and we bet you will feel just like our lovable agent 007!
We came across these fantastic Treehouse suites when we wrote our first article on Treehouses…and we literally couldn’t believe our eyes (think amazing hotel suite, put in a tree). So we decided then and there that these treehouse suites deserved their own article so that our readers could fully appreciate their splendour!
As Glamping stands for Glamorous Camping and there isn’t a sniff of camping to be found at Chewton Glen, we don’t really class these Treehouse suites as glamping- but we thought it would be fun to showcase these for our readers anyway!
These treehouses first opened their lofty doors in 2012, and consists of twelve Treehouse Suites, located in six wooden lodges, supported on stilts in the tree canopy, overlooking a secluded and picturesque valley in the grounds of the hotel.
Perfect for nature lovers, the Treehouse Suites nestle high amongst the trees in a natural setting. Large picture windows offer gorgeous views and each suite leads out on to large wrap-around balcony, perfect for enjoying the sunset at the end of the day.
Quietly contemporary and curvaceous, their restrained interiors are the inspiration of designer Martin Hulbert, who has commissioned bespoke furniture to accommodate the curved walls and dressed everything in a palate of neutral colours and tweedy fabrics.
These suites are a tranquil oasis where guests can truly relax and indulge themselves in peace and quiet. They are also adaptable spaces, designed with both couples and families in mind.
Ambient lighting creates different moods and settings which brings to life the contemporary classic style of interior design. Each suite has a small kitchen area where breakfast hampers are discretely delivered in the morning via a secret hatchway without disturbing the guests. The spacious lounges with their large curved seating areas take advantage of the beautiful views, log burning stoves add warmth and ambience, and stunning artwork enriches the suites. Discretely located state-of-the art communications and entertainment systems further enhance the guest experience.
And it wouldn’t be James Bond-esque without your own hot tub… not to mention, a number of the suites also have a large secret bunk room, ideal for children and accessed via an innovative ‘Swedish staircase’. With the option of booking the complete lodge, including both suites and the bunk room upstairs, extended family groups and parties of friends will find the Treehouse Suite option a flexible solution to their accommodation requirements (if they can foot the bill!)
One word. Stunning.
