Your Accomodation

The treehouse is a breathtaking design, with a living oak tree being the main focus in the circular, open plan studio that sleeps two people. There is also a small bathroom including a shower, toilet and sink, a small porch at the front connecting to the rope bridge and then a larger decking to the back overlooking fields of sheep with a stairway down to ground level. The tastefully designed kitchen has an oven, hob, fridge with small freezer compartment and all the other kitchen utensils and crockery you could need, including wine glasses, coffee mugs and champagne glasses.

The biggest draw has to be the impressive rope bridge which isn’t for the faint hearted as it sways and bounces when you walk across. It’s an exciting adventure from the moment you arrive, that’s for sure.

Your Food

A stay at Bensfield Treehouse includes a personalised complimentary hamper. This is a delightful touch and we couldn’t get enough of the strawberries, tomatoes, mushrooms, apple juice and bread. All the hamper ingredients are locally sourced, including meats and eggs, but upon request a vegetarian or vegan hamper can be provided instead. The produce isn’t just local, it’s seasonal too and this shows in the bursting flavours. The bread is soft, the tomatoes are sweet and the strawberries are really juicy.

Our Recommendations

At £200 per night for two people, Bensfield Treehouse is not a low-cost option. It is however great value for money, especially if you opt to spend your time enjoying the treehouse and it’s immediate surroundings, instead of paying for days out as well. After all, with a unique stay such as this one, you are better off enjoying the charming location you have already paid for.

Here are our recommendations for enjoying your Treetop Holiday:

  • Spend lazy days with both the back and front doors of the treehouse wide open to remind you where you are.
  • Walk through the owner’s farm and fields to meet the grazing animals, a small track that’s enjoyable in any weather with welly boots. A useful map is thoughtfully provided in your welcome book so that you know which land you are welcome to trample through.
  • Make the most of the BBQ on the back deck, with it’s relaxing views and surrounding nature.
  • A bottle of champagne goes down nicely with those deliciously ripe strawberries if you too are celebrating a special occasion during the summer.
  • Take a seat in the afternoon sun on the front porch with both feet on the rope bridge breathing in East Sussex’s countryside air.
  • Give the oak tree a big hug!

The Local Area

If you do choose to get out and about whilst you stay at Bensfield Treehouse, there are some pleasant local treasures to enjoy, with and without the need to spend more money.

The Mark Cross Inn

On a sunny day, local pub The Mark Cross Inn, is ideal for lunch in the garden overlooking the rolling green fields. The menu varies but always includes vegan options, such as the Super Food Salad with pomegranate, quinoa and avocado. A meal and a refreshing drink will cost you approximately £15. Don’t rush off after you have eaten.  Instead, sit back, relax and enjoy the view.

Bewl Water

A great half day itinerary is a nearby cycle at Bewl Water, so don’t forget to pack your bikes. On the Kent side of the border, benefiting from scenic views of the High Weald AONB, this trail is approximately 15km depending on the route you take. It circles the reservoir on various terrain and is a great free summer’s day option. Peddle under the canopy of trees, through the open tracks alongside the water’s edge and on small country lanes.

There are many other nearby spots to enjoy and your Bensfield Treehouse hosts have kindly compiled a comprehensive list of their favourite local pubs and walks to make your choice easier.

Is this holiday right for you?

This holiday is ideal for couples who are looking to celebrate a special occasion, with privacy and peace and quiet. The Treehouse is not designed for children and there isn’t room for groups. It’s a location best suited to nature lovers as you are staying on a family-run farm and in a countryside environment. Accept the odd spider, wasp or the noise of your sheep neighbours and you will love it here.

Don’t forget, you can still enjoy Bensfield Treehouse on a low budget. Try firing up the BBQ or packing English picnics, gentle exercise with local walks and cycles, or simply indulge in lazy days amongst the trees.

If you are visiting England from abroad, we highly recommend you pre-book your Car Hire.

With this location, it really is the little touches that make all the difference to your stay.

From the hamper with local produce to the in-depth local guide compiled by them, everything is done for you. The design of this treehouse is also unique and if you want to learn more about it, a number of treehouse books are provided which feature it and the story of it’s architecture.

Thank you to our wonderful hosts for our delightful stay, and for maintaining and sharing a pretty little slice of Sussex.

  1. I’ve always found treehouses to be so romantic and fairytaleish, and this treehouse was beautiful! Even though it is a tad on the pricier side (especially if your only one person) I would absolutely consider this treehouse stay!
