A new luxury treehouse is being built at Chewton Glen, which is set to become the biggest in the hotel’s portfolio, available to sleep up to eight.
Work is now underway on the treehouse, headed up by design consultancy Terence O’Rourke who was responsible for securing planning permission for the original 12 treehouses at the five-star Chewton Glen back in 2012.
The new large treehouse will ‘raise the standard of luxury treetop accommodation’ and will have a private and secluded setting as well as its own professional kitchen where a personal chef can take care of dining.
Due for completion in early October this year, the new treehouse will be the largest in Chewton Glen’s portfolio sleeping up to eight people, targeting families or private functions.
Alternatively, the accommodation can be divided into two separate suites for smaller parties.
In keeping with Chewton Glen’s treetop residences, the latest offering will include a wood burner, marble bathroom and a large outdoor terrace with day beds and hot tubs to take in the forest views from a tree canopy.
The development is part of the exclusive hotel’s ongoing expansion plans after Terence O’Rourke recently handed over £2.6m cookery school The Kitchen, which is headed up by celebrity chef James Martin.
Andrew Stembridge, managing director at Chewton Glen, said: “Terence O’Rourke has successfully supported the evolution of this unique property with design and planning solutions, and brought the hotel unprecedented international PR exposure and improved the dynamics of the business.”
