Terence O’Rourke have a long-standing relationship working with Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa, a prestigious 5-star hotel in the New Forest. Utilising our planning, architectural and landscape architecture services we have worked with the hotel to deliver a number of development projects across an estate-wide master plan, including the award-winning treehouse suites.

Seven treehouses accommodate up to fourteen suites. Nestled within the tree canopies, the treehouse suites take advantage of the hotel’s woodland setting to take treetop living to the next level, providing innovative and opulent 5-star accommodation, married with the seclusion and immersion in nature from staying in a treehouse.

The organic curved shape of the treehouses ‘floats’ above the forest floor, designed to have minimal impact on the sensitive woodland setting. The hit and miss timber cladding draws inspiration from the bark of the trees, and the earthy copper tones of the aluminium roof and fascias are enhanced by the treehouses’ natural surroundings.

Internally, bespoke high-quality finishes and fittings create a sense of luxury. A palette of neutral, earthy tones complement the natural surroundings and give a sense of tranquillity in this idyllic setting. The large vaulted main living space gives a sense of grandeur as you enter the suite, revealing breath-taking views of the open valley and forest beyond, whilst wood burners give a cosy feel all year round.
