It has been designed and constructed by Blue Forest. Renowned for their luxurious treehouses, the Blue Forest team has built hundreds of individual wooden structures around the world. Their portfolio includes everything from fantasy treehouse castles to children’s dens, exclusive treehouse accommodation and custom built eco-classrooms and sustainable buildings.
Mark Godfrey, Managing Director of Deer Park Country House Hotel, said: “We’ve always loved the idea of having a treehouse in the grounds but this has far excelled all our expectations. It is more beautiful than we could have imagined and, with it being the first thatched treehouse in Devon, stands out as somewhere very different and hugely romantic to stay.”
Inspired by the best of British, and celebrating the joys of country living, the Deer Park Country House Hotel is set in 80 acres of magnificent grounds.
