On the bend of the River Severn in Gloucestershire, ancient country estate Elmore Court has just opened six luxury treehouses for guests to relax, enjoy and be inspired by a stunning rewilding project. With both woodland and countryside views, the estate is buzzing with life as its nature recovery programme enters its third year.
The bespoke cabins set high in the canopy of Park Covert Woods overlook wild wetlands where the flora and fauna takes centre stage.
Elmore Court has been the Guise family seat for nearly 750 years with current owner Anselm Guise inheriting the property from his uncle in 2007. In 2020 he set aside 250 of the 1,000-acre estate to rewilding, ceasing to cultivate the land and allowing nature to flourish as well as adopting regenerative farming methods for food production.
The treehouses are part of Anselm’s desire to open the estate, inviting guests to stay deep within nature and experience how it is possible to increase biodiversity and breathe positivity back into the environment by rewilding.
Accommodation is suitable for couples, friends and small families with different designs of cabin sleeping 2, 3 and 4 people all with super kingsize beds, organic mattress and soft linen, most offering single trundle beds for extra guests.
Inside, in addition to the bedroom with its cosy wood burner and snuggly sheepskin throws, there’s a mini kitchen, bathroom with walk in rain shower and seating area.
