Escaping to a treehouse ’til this all blows over sounds pretty dreamy right now, huh? And making that dream (almost) a reality is the lovely folk behind Baxby Manor – the creators of the seriously impressive treehouse, Rufus’s Roost. But before you start packing your bags, it’s worth noting this spot is super popular – and for good reason, too.
Tucked away in the trees on the edge of the stunning North York Moors in Husthwaite, the giant treehouse has space enough for six – with a number of luxury amenities to make the getaway extra special.
Looking out over the countryside on the elevated veranda, guests can wind down in the hot tub, with a pizza oven on hand to cook up a little treat. Don’t make a peep, and you might be able to spot the local deer, badgers and other wildlife – with otters and bats setting up camp by the river. It’s no coincidence that such fantastic wildlife lives on-site either, with the owners purposefully planting hedgerows and forests across the land, allowing nature to thrive.
If that wasn’t enough fun for one treehouse, it also features its very own slide – which you’ll find hidden somewhere in the cabin – as well as a hidden reading nook which you can access via the tunnel… Just two of the many wonderful details to stumble upon within the property.
And not only is the place full of fun little cherries on top of an already tasty cake, guests can also enjoy the many amenities that make the peaceful spot home-from-home – including a modern kitchen and bathroom, cosy double bedrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a wood-burning fire pit.
Rufus’s Roost can be found at the Baxby Manor campsite in Husthwaite, North Yorkshire, with prices starting at just £300 per night (£50pp when split between 6). To find out more or to book your stay, head over to the website here.
