Escaping to the woods might sound like a cry for help, but it’s actually the motto of this woodland retreat in the UK, just outside Exeter. “Escape to the woods,” reads the website of Mallinson’s Woodland Retreat, and indeed, this place will make you feel like Robin Hood with its treehouse accommodations and total immersion in the forest.

Mallinson’s is located on 40 acres of idyllic woodland and meadow, offering a sense of peace and tranquility that can only be found in a natural, remote setting. With its own private lake, an abundance of wildlife, and wooded trails, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most sought-after retreats in the country.

There accommodations here are what make this property truly special. There are three treehouses and one yurt available for booking, with the treehouses sitting high in the forest canopy. The treehouses come with log burning stoves, a fire pit and BBQ, hammocks, private hot tubs, and some even have a swing, sauna, and slide to help you reach the ground more quickly. The yurt, an additional accommodation option, is perfect if you’d rather sleep closer to the ground. Feeling more like a traditional campsite, it has a pizza oven, private deck, outdoor and “tree shower.”

For those looking for a little adventure during their stay, there are plenty of activities available on site or nearby. Guests can choose from fishing trips on a local river or lake (licences available from reception), walking tours around the local area (guided by experts), cycling tours around some of England’s most beautiful countryside roads, horse riding lessons at nearby stables or even hot air balloon rides over the surrounding landscape.
