Contemporary Treehouses & Luxury glamping in a Dorset woodland

The adventure begins here – whether you fancy a stay in an award winning contemporary treehouse or a hand crafted yurt, tipi or shepherds hut every space is self contained, self catering with its own private facilities & is just for grown ups (18+).

Immerse yourself in nature on your private deck with your own wood fired pizza oven & proper flushing loo. 

We have been welcoming guests to our magical world in the woods for over 10 years –  before anyone had heard of the word Glamping!

Founder Guy Mallinson was the “wood mentor” on the BBC2 series Mastercrafts which was filmed in the woods and features many of the traditional craft skills used to create our spaces.

The Woodsman’s Treehouse won the RIBA South West award and was named the ‘Small Project of the Year’. George Clarke’s ‘Amazing Spaces’ and Grand Design’s ‘House of the Year’ also featured it in their television shows.
