Treehouse holiday specialists, Canopy & Stars, have created a sustainable urban treehouse suspended high on one of Bristol’s Harbourside’s cranes and are offering holidaymakers a chance to experience a night’s stay.
The first-ever treehouse in a crane, known as Canopy & Stars at Crane 29, is a temporary installation that will be available for stays between May and September.
Canopy & Stars at Crane 29 is a low-impact build which will be completely carbon neutral and built using sustainable materials. The one-bedroom treehouse promises be a bubble of nature in Bristol’s industrial heart. The roof will feature pollinating plants, attracting bees, birds and wildlife.
Canopy & Stars say: “Once you climb into the treehouse you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back into nature with dappled light and greenery abound. Expect a sensory experience full of the sights, scents and sounds of the outdoors.
“We haven’t held back on comforts or creative touches – there’s a lovely shower with organic soaps and the sumptuous bed will have you sleeping like a hibernating bear. We do like to keep some things true to nature though, so the loo is a more adventurous, planet-friendly composting one from our friends at Eco-toilets.”
The treehouse opens to guests from late May, with just over 100 nights available. Demand is expected to be high so Canopy & Stars are using a two-stage ballot to make the process fair. You can enter the treehouse ballot here.
One night’s stay at Canopy & Stars at Crane 29 costs £185 on a weekday and £250 on a weekend.
All profits from the treehouse will be donated to Friends of the Earth.
