This luxury treehouse boasts six bedrooms, LED lighting and a woodfire pizza oven
Yorkshire has seen a surge in staycation bookings for this summer, as Boris Johnson's road map out of lockdown is set to lift restrictions on travel. And with an array of quirky holiday homes, from luxury glamping to the weird and wonderful, it's easy to see why. Booking site Host Unusual has listed this gorgeous family treehouse in Husthwaite, North Yorkshire, which is now taking bookings for the summer. This quirky property is hidden in woodland recently featured on This Morning's 'Staycation Showdown'. It boasts six bedrooms, a snug accessed by a slide, and even a log-fire pizza oven. Take a look inside...
Rufus's Roost is dreamily nestled in woodland belonging to the medieval Baxby Manor, with captivating views that lead your gaze across to the North Yorkshire Moors and the White Horse of Kilburn
The treehouse is privately secluded on the site of The Hideaway - a relaxed, family-run farm campsite in North Yorkshire . Access to the treehouse is right through the whispering forest, along a raised boardwalk
