The luxury treehouses with expansive views of idyllic forest

At Center Parcs you can bring your childhood dreams to life and stay in a treehouse which looks like something out of a fairytale. There are three treehouses at the holiday village, and each one has a clever woodland name, which means you could be stopping in Chestnut, Acorn or Hazlenut.

These stays are unlike anything else in the UK, as you can emerge yourself in the woodland and wake up to panoramic views of the forest. We were given an exclusive look around the Chestnut treehouse at the Sherwood Forest Center Parcs, and I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it.

As there are only three, the treehouses are located in a more quiet and private part of the site, and there is a fairly long wooden bridge leading up to each door. I absolutely loved this, and it meant before I even had a chance to go inside I already felt like I was going on an adventure.

Each treehouse has four bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, a lounge, kitchen area and dining area, all of which are extremely modern but keep in with the nature theme. I was also quick to spot the giant chalkboard inside, which is a key feature in all accommodation and lodges at the park.

I was wowed by the outside and inside, but my jaw almost dropped when I went to the back of the treehouse where there was even more to see. Across a balcony area and mini bridge, there was a separate room which sort of looked like a mini hut.

This was another living space, a cross between a snug and a games room, with a large pool table, huge TV and a fridge stocked with goodies. Also outside was a hot tub and sauna area, which means you don't even have to go to the Aqua Sana Spa or Subtropical Swimming Paradise to relax.

Next to the hot tub was a small set of stairs which led to an upstairs balcony and the master bedroom. You will have a great time no matter which room you are in, but the master bedroom is truly out of this world.

You could literally roll out of bed and enjoy your breakfast and coffee on a private balcony, or it is also a great place to sit in the evening and watch the stars. Whether you are an adult or a child you are sure to have an enchanting experience and a holiday truly like no other.

The price of a treehouse stay depends on the time of year and length of stay, with costs rising from £2,000. However, it can sleep up to eight people which means if you went with friends or others in your family the price can be split to be a bit more affordable.

It truly is the height of luxury at the park, and it also has a dedicated parking space. This is a huge bonus, as although you can't drive around during your stay as most people choose to cycle or walk, it will save you a lot of time on arrival and leaving day if you can keep your car nearby rather than at the car park on the opposite side of the park.

Plus, each treehouse has Sky TV, a wine cooler, a gas barbeque, dishwasher and a fully equipped kitchen.
