What to consider before booking a treehouse stay

If you like the idea of sleeping cosily in a tree, there’s no better time than the present to book a treehouse stay. A treehouse stay is a unique and adventurous way to spend your next outdoor holiday! Spending time in a treehouse is a great way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse yourself in nature. In this article, we'll cover some essential things you need to consider when planning your treehouse stay.

  1. Location: The first step in planning your treehouse stay is deciding on the location. Do you want to be in a remote location, surrounded by nature? Or do you prefer to be closer to civilisation, with amenities nearby? Once you have a location in mind, you can start looking for treehouses that are available for rent in that area. On Campspace, you can find treehouses in Belgium, treehouses in the Netherlands, treehouses in France and treehouses in Denmark, among many other locations.
  2. Budget: Treehouse stays can range from budget-friendly to luxurious. Deciding on your budget beforehand will help you narrow down your options and ensure that you're not overspending. Keep in mind that some treehouses may require a minimum stay, so be sure to factor that into your budget as well.
  3. Amenities: When it comes to treehouse stays, amenities can vary greatly. Some treehouses may have basic amenities like a bed and a small kitchenette, while others may have more luxurious amenities like a hot tub, fireplace, or even a full kitchen. Consider what amenities are important to you and your travel companions and choose a treehouse that meets your needs.
  4. Accessibility: It's important to consider the accessibility of the treehouse you're considering. Some treehouses may require a hike or climb to reach, which may not be suitable for everyone. Be sure to check if the treehouse is accessible by car or if you'll need to hike to reach it.
  5. Weather: When planning your treehouse stay, be sure to consider the weather. If you're planning to stay in the summer, be prepared for warmer temperatures and potential bugs. If you're planning to stay in the fall or winter, be prepared for cooler temperatures and potential snow or ice. Make sure to pack appropriate clothing and gear for the weather conditions.
  6. Activities: Treehouse stays offer the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, or simply enjoying the scenic views. Consider what activities are available in the area and plan accordingly. Some treehouses may offer activities like zip-lining or kayaking, so be sure to check with the owner or rental company.

A treehouse stay, or a forest holiday?

During your stay in a treehouse, you will probably be in or near a forest. Forests are amazing places to do all sorts of activities! If you like to relax, you can go for a nice walk alone or with your friends and family. You can have long and interesting conversations or listen to a podcast together. There are lots of fun and easy ways to explore the forests. 

If you want to get close to trees and nature, we'd definitely recommend stepping off the beaten path with a treehouse holiday. Of course, if you prefer to stay closer to the ground, there are plenty of tent, glamping and provided accommodation pitches available to you as well that will have you surrounded by trees anyway!

Camping in the forest 🌲

A treehouse glamping holiday

A treehouse on Campspace is often simple but beautifully decorated, with rustic wooden furniture. The bedding is comfortable and there is often a heating system or even a wood-burning stove to keep warm on cold nights. You can spend a pleasant evening reading and chatting in front of the fire, then fall asleep peacefully in your cosy beds.

Cosy treehouse holiday

Sleeping in a treehouse is very comfortable. The cabins are well insulated against cold and heat, and they have good ventilation. You will feel as if you are in your own house, but with a great view of nature. Good bedding, sufficient heating and cosy blankets and plaids will give you the comfort you need to enjoy your nature getaway. 

Glamping ✨

A treehouse stay: sustainable camping

The concept of a treehouse is simple: it is a small structure built high up, usually out of wood, in which you can spend a night or a weekend. The idea is that these huts are built in a sustainable way, using ecological materials and minimising the impact on the environment.

These cabins can be equipped with all the necessary comforts for a pleasant stay, such as a fully equipped kitchen and even a bathroom. Some treehouses even offer breathtaking views of the surrounding nature!

This makes a treehouse a great choice for those who want to camp in a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
