Pickwell Manor, Devon
For a romantic retreat, we love the look of these two adult-only treehouses at Pickwell Manor, Devon – The Loft and The Hideaway – which are due to open in early autumn. Alongside open-plan interiors handcrafted from larch and oak, there’s also a king-sized bed from which to see the ocean or the surrounding woodland. Both treehouses also come with hot tubs and offer views of the Atlantic from their decks. For those so inclined, try out a surf lesson at nearby Woollacombe Bay.

Opt for the Peregrine and you can also enjoy the open-air, wood-fired Swedish Hikki bath-tub on a separate platform, reached by a wooden walkway.
