Queen Elizabeth’s playhouse was a gift from the people of Wales. It contained miniature versions of everything you may find in a 1930’s (albeit well-off) british home. It was named “Y Bwthyn Bach” or The Little House. It exists to this day at the Royal Lodge.

Château Hautefort Luxury Treehouse


Château Hautefort is a charming cabin built into the trees of Nojals-et-Clotte, France, and part of Châteaux dans les Arbres, a complex of tree houses available as lodging.


This awesome arboreal dwelling is the Living the High Life Tree House created by Blue Forest, a British tree house design and construction firm. It’s a luxury family-sized complex featuring two separate tree houses, one for kids and one for their parents. The elevated dwellings are connected by a network of rope bridges which also lead to an adventure play area and an assault course, the latter of which is also accessible via an 80-yard zip line.

It may look rustic, but this is a top-of-the-line tree house. The kids’ house features three medieval towers, and inside one of them a concealed hatch in the upper floor leads to a secret game room containing a plasma TV and video game console. Meanwhile the grown-ups’ treehouse features a conical thatched roof and interior walls made of hand-split oak shingles and cedar tongue-and-groove boards. Inside there’s a kitchen (complete with plenty of wine storage), bathroom, and a large open living area for treetop entertaining. The complex also features accommodations for guests of the family.

Head over to the Blue Forest website to check out more of their amazing custom-built tree houses.
