the brief

Welcome to the Timbertop Treehouse


  • Sussex Business Awards – Winner 2014
  • Build Interior Design Awards – Winner 2018

Expert design and professional craftsmanship combined; this treehouse was built for a young boy within the grounds of the family home. A short walk from the side of the main house leads you through a shady woodland path, where a magnificent old Oak tree grows a little further apart from the other trees. The family wanted to create an extraordinary hideaway where their son could play and where the grownups could also visit to reconnect with their inner child every now and then! They wanted something that was nestled up high in the branches, allowing you to disappear from the stresses of busy modern life and get close to nature again.

the design

A treehouse that’s designed for adventurous living

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.

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 it’s action and adventure that you’re looking for, a magnificent 60m zip-wire offers daredevils exhilarating ride like no other through the trees.
