Timbertop Hangout Treehouse

Location: East Sussex

Form of Contract: Private Terms

Expert design and professional craftsmanship combined, this treehouse was built for a young family within the grounds of the family home. A short walk through a shady woodland path brings you to the Timbertop Hangout, an extraordinary timber hideaway that offers a magical treehouse experience for all the family to enjoy. Nestled within the branches of a magnificent mature oak tree, the Timbertop Hangout allows you to disappear from a busy modern life, get close to nature and completely relax with your family.

An inviting haven among the trees…

Step across the Indiana Jones-style rope bridge onto the main decking, which is the perfect open space for sun bathing or setting up a table and eating lunch al fresco. The curved shape of the treehouse with its cedar shingles and bay window seat offers an indulgent multi-purpose space for a kids hideout, which is perfect for sleepovers.

This treehouse has a second level – amidst the leaves and branches sits an additional crow’s nest lookout raised high above the treehouse, accessed by a climbing ladder leaning against the trunk of the tree. This small and cozy nook has enough room for a few chairs and a small table. Here you can unwind to the soothing sound of the breeze rustling through the leaves as you sit with a book, or look out over the spectacular panoramic views.

A treehouse that’s designed for adventurous living…

Although perfect as an idyllic retreat, this treehouse is also ideal for keeping energetic kids playing outside for hours. Parents can sit back and watch as their children race across the rope bridges, take turns on the stainless steel slide or play hide and seek around the tree trunks. If its action and adventure that you’re looking for, a magnificent 60m zip-wire offers daredevils exhilarating ride like no other through the trees.
