We all know modern life is hectic, and planning a wedding can cause a fair bit of stress - so if you’re looking for a romantic getaway, whether it’s a mini moon or just a break, consider the new treehouses at Elmore Court.
You can choose from six magical cabins nestled within the nature-filled grounds of Elmore Court. Hitched Editor Zoe Burke spent two nights enjoying the peaceful wilderness surrounding the ‘Wildcat’ treehouse…
Whether you’re looking for a romantic break away just the two of you, cool accommodation for a wedding, or the perfect secluded UK mini moon spot, Elmore Court’s treehouses have plenty to offer.
We stayed in the Wildcat accommodation, which can sleep three, similar to Adder and Kite. They also have Wren, a cosy little retreat for two, and Earth, which sleeps four, and the fully accessible Sky cabin, which has space for four as well.
I visited with my partner and our three year old, so Wildcat was ideal for us - our daughter was super snug in a pull-out bed that fitted neatly alongside ours, but could be placed out of the way in the daytime.
There was a lot to love about the treehouses, but what stood out the most to me was how secluded they felt. Even though there are six, and you park all together in the same parking space, once you embark on the wooden walkway to your cabin, you forget about all others.
Each treehouse is set back into the woods, and is surrounded by trees so you’re not overlooked nor overlooking, any of the neighbouring ones. The large windows give a very real impression of being alone in nature, with towering trees and wide open field space surrounding you.
The L-shaped space came complete with a king-sized double bed, a hidden single bed for small extra guests, a window seat - complete with birdwatching gear, such as binoculars and guide books - and a luxury bathroom.
Uniquely, the kitchen space is outside on the decking, shielded from the elements, with the oven and coffee making facilities within the cabin. This added to the feeling of escaping to nature, as we prepared and ate our meals outdoors, watching the weather changing around us.
There’s also a large copper bath on the decking - again, shielded from view by the surrounding trees. It’s big enough for two, making it a super romantic spot for a mini moon soak under the stars.
For us, the firepit had a huge appeal - it wasn’t too warm during our visit, so we made the most of building a cosy fire and in the evening sat by it studying the night sky and looking out for bats. It was truly a perfect spot for disconnecting from everyone and everything but each other.
The accommodation is offered as self-catering, but you can take advantage of their homegrown ingredients and receive a package of delicious things, should you choose to.
We had an exceptional fish pie delivered to us from the team onsite, and although it felt as though we were in the midst of nowhere, you are a short drive from Cheltenham, should you want to explore or stock up on supplies (we did hit the Cook shop in Cheltenham hard for day too - needs must!).
We felt well rested, reconnected and revitalised after a weekend amongst nature at the Elmore Court treehouses. They’re absolutely ideal for couples or small families who want to escape it all, but still want modern luxury.
They’d also make for the most perfect wedding accommodation, especially if you're keen on a treehouse wedding - just make sure you book in one for yourself before your guests snap them all up!
Prices start from around £250 per night on a self-catering basis with a two-night minimum stay and bookings are open now.
