From forest cabins to treehouses, we select the most luxurious hideaways for a Valentine’s day escape
Sitting high in the tree canopy with only birdsong to break the silence, the private treehouses at Chewton Glen in Hampshire by luxury treehouse makers Blue Forest are just about as fabulous as they come.
Set in some of the wildest glens, highest mountains and largest lochs of the north Scottish Highlands, a log cabin at Eagle Brae is just the place for gazing out romantically as the sun sets over the horizon and watching deer grazing peacefully below.
With its cosy candlewick bedspreads, log burner, free-standing bath and breathtaking sea views, Harry’s Hut, built by local hutmakers Plankbridge, at The Pig on the Beach at Studland, Dorset, has every creature comfort covered.
The stylish suite in the thatched gatekeeper’s lodge at Olga Polizzi’s Hotel Endsleigh in the Tamar Valley, Devon, has its own private garden, a roaring wood-burning stove and is set in 108 acres of woodland and gardens full of nooks and crannies for romantic trysts.
The cool and contemporary Forest Cabin in the grounds of Lime Wood in Hampshire has a free-standing bath, monsoon shower and the prerequisite cosy log fire. Believe us when we say that it will be painful to pack your suitcase at the end of the weekend.
