The luxury treehouses at Durham’s award-winning Ramside Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa are now preparing to welcome guests – marking a new era in accommodation in the North East.

The first two of the multi-million pound project are now open, with the third treehouse launching this month.

The state-of-the-art lodge named Peacock, built on stilts and with views over the hotel’s championship golf courses, was the first to opens its doors, with the second, Cuckoo, launched 17 January.

Each treehouse features three bedrooms which can be divided up and booked as a one bedroom studio or two bedrooms for smaller groups, or as the entire property which can sleep up to 12 by using a range of sofa beds.

And that means that they are the perfect option for everything from family get togethers to corporate away days to intimate weddings and celebrations for up to 24.

Guests can enjoy private dining with food prepared by one of the hotel’s chefs and can also create packages allowing them to use Ramside’s other facilities including the spa and golf courses.

The treehouses are all individually themed, include free standing copper baths and have two outdoor hot tubs per house, so that even when split into two private residences each has access to their own tub.

Names after birds, Peacock has been inspired by lavish French décor, while Cuckoo has drawn inspiration from Alpine lodges.  Woodpecker, which opens next month, has a more contemporary design aesthetic.

All the treehouses have been created to blend seamlessly with the woodland environment, with views over the spa and golf course.

Guests get a continental breakfast delivered to their treehouse as part of the package, with a variety of add-on options including dining at the hotel and use of the spa facilities.

Prices start from £395 for a one bedroom studio and includes continental breakfast. For further information or to book visit
