Ramside Hall has opened its first two luxury treehouses after a multi-million project, with a third due to launch in February.
The lodge, named Peacock, is built on stilts with views over the hotel’s championship golf courses, with Cuckoo, the second lodge, opening last week.
Plans for the new addition were first unveiled in 2017.
Each treehouse features three bedrooms which can be divided up and booked as a one bedroom studio or two bedrooms for smaller groups, or as the entire property which can sleep up to 12 by using a range of sofa beds.
The treehouses are all individually themed, include free standing copper baths and have two outdoor hot tubs per house.
Names after birds, Peacock has been inspired by lavish French décor, while Cuckoo has drawn inspiration from Alpine lodges.
Woodpecker, which opens next month, has a more contemporary design aesthetic.
“This is something brand new, not just for the North East, but for the whole of the north,” said Mr Adamson.
“We’ve created luxurious, flexible accommodation which can be used for any occasion and configured to suit individual needs.
Ramside Hall Hotel is also home to four restaurants and the Spa at Ramside, with five pools, a thermal suite and a gym.
Ramside Estates, owner of Ramside Hall Hotel, has been investing significantly in the hotel over the last two years. Ramside Hall is operated alongside Hardwick Hall Hotel near Sedgefield and Bowburn Hall in County Durham in the portfolio.
