Where it began…
Back in 2002, Paul Cameron was keen to encourage adventurous ideas and a passion for imagination in his own two young boys. He started researching what treehouses were available on the market, and, after a little research, soon came to realise that they really only came in two types – pre-fabricated playground schemes or the incredibly expensive, cubby-house in a tree, offering nothing more than just a place to sit.
Unhappy with either of these two scenarios, Paul decided the quickest solution was simply to design a treehouse for his children himself. But this time he wanted to break the mould, building a treehouse that represented a child’s view of childhood, not an adult’s view of what they thought it should be.
It was off the back of this very first treehouse design and build that Paul formed Treehouse Life in January 2002. And the rest, as they say, is treehouse history!
Understanding that the key to the success of Treehouse Life would be the people who drove each treehouse design and build project forward, Paul quickly brought together an experienced team – individuals who not only shared his creative vision, instincts and passion for the business, but also brought a wide range of highly specialised skills to the table, including engineering, tree surgery, carpentry and joinery.
Over the course of the last 20 years, Treehouse Life has continued to evolve and grow as a leading treehouse designer and builder across the United Kingdom, United States and Europe. We have continually pushed forward with new ideas and innovations. We have gone where no other treehouse building and design company has gone before.
Now a marketplace leader with our unforgettable designs, Treehouse Life’s treehouses have become ‘A-list’ photographic ‘models’, featured regularly on television, as well as in numerous leading newspapers and glossy magazines.

“Having already brought the joy of a ‘Treehouse’ life to countless clients around the world - including a host of celebrity parents, such as Gary Barlow, Harry Kane and Elton John - at Treehouse Life we continue to help adults tap into their inner-child and let them give their own children the sort of childhood they had always dreamt of having”

Our brand values…
“At Treehouse Life, we embed our brand values in everything we design and create ”
We offer the chance to discover new lands within your own world – from dressing up and ‘let’s pretend’ to relaxing and enjoying every free minute you have. This is what we do. We offer a chance to live a ‘Treehouse’ life.
It is certainly true that a treehouse would not be considered one of life’s ‘must have’ necessities, but maybe that is where its real appeal lies.
On one hand, a treehouse is undoubtedly a luxury; a beautiful gift for those you love, or even a present to yourself, so you can indulge your every whim. On the other hand, a treehouse build, design or project is all about getting back to basics.
Treehouse Life represents breaking free from an age of progress and technology. It is an important reminder to appreciate everything in your life that really makes you happy, instead of wasting your time, energy and money on those ‘things’ that you think should make you happy.
For some, a treehouse means that ideal place for the kids to stretch their legs and let off some steam during the day. For others, it also offers a perfect ‘adult’ escape in which to chill out, unwind and entertain friends under the stars at night.
“At Treehouse Life we build and design treehouses for everyone and for every occasion “View all products
Nothing beats good old-fashioned, hands-on experience when it comes to the treehouse building business, so with more than 20 years under our tool belt, Treehouse Life certainly knows more about it than most.
Some of our latest projects have been a testament to the importance of experience, including building the two longest Rope Bridges in the UK, working on the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust ‘Wild-Walk’ visitor attraction at London Wetlands Centre, completing two projects for the National Trust, and pushing our imagination to the limits at an Adventure Park project for the largest resort in Qatar, in the Middle East. Experience also brings with it a greater sense of understanding and trust, both traits that are highly valued by our clients including ground-breaking projects for hotels and resorts, schools, commercial Adventure Parks and particularly the case when being commissioned to complete projects for our Private Clients Elton John, Gary Barlow and Harry Kane.
Design & Build…
Treehouse Life Ltd. is a “small business with a global niche”. We design and build bespoke treehouses for clients across the UK and all around the world – from private gardens and country estates to landscapers, architects and school playgrounds, then fabulous hotels and far-flung resorts.
Drawing on our extensive experience, our design process will always take into account a treehouse build and design project in its entirety. In other words, we instinctively know how a project will eventually look and feel within the location and how it will blend seamlessly with its surroundings. At the initial on-site consultation, our most important job is always to listen to a client’s wish list – no plans for a treehouse ever comes without exciting hopes and childhood dreams!
Creativity is our speciality, so we are here to help guide clients step-by-step, suggesting ideas and working together to decide upon a design that is fulfilling expectations, yet still logistically possible and within budget.
With our bespoke and custom treehouse build and rope bridge projects, most of the build is carried out on-site. This allows us to achieve that look and feel of ‘belonging’, as though the treehouse has always lived and been loved in that exact location. A completed project should always be ‘at one’ with the natural surroundings, not jarring with them. It certainly should never look like a pre-fabricated, flat-pack, brochure kit that has just been plonked down!
Some might say that Paul Cameron, Founder and CEO of Treehouse Life Ltd., is something of a guru in the treehouse build world. He’s certainly a pioneer for luxury garden treehouses and woodland adventures. Much like Peter Pan, there seems to be very little he doesn’t understand about childhood fun, or about pushing the boundaries of the imagination and attempting the seemingly impossible.
This combination of design flair and experience, along with the support of an incredible, highly dedicated team, has allowed Treehouse Life to continually deliver their ‘Wow-Factor’ signature products – from bespoke luxury garden treehouse builds and breathtaking Tree-Top Walkway designs, to Nest Swings, Rope Bridges and so much more. It is this creativity that makes Treehouse Life “…a world away from everyday”
Everyday, our experienced teams at Treehouse Life are designing, building and servicing our luxury garden treehouse builds in all manner of far-flung locations and fabulous settings around the world including Qatar, Portugal, Ibiza, Cyprus, Italy, Canada, USA, Seychelles, Azerbaijan, Hawaii and Singapore. Every member of our team is passionate about what they do; they are all familiar with our adventurous and extreme projects, as well as working with planned budgets.
We know what we are doing and have experienced all contingencies before. But regardless of whether we are working for a private client at home or a large organisation overseas, we will always guarantee the same thing: experienced solutions for all your wishes, exacting attention to detail and world-class bespoke products that bring a magical ‘Wow-Factor’, wherever it might be.
Our aim at Treehouse Life is to transform and connect outdoor spaces so that they blend seamlessly with the environment around them. Subtle in their design and empathetic to the surroundings, yet still exciting enough to encourage the sort of magical adventures that makes beautiful play happen. Using our ‘Wow-Factor’ signature products, our experienced and brilliant teams work hard to design and build their client’s dream, whether that might be clambering up into a castle, racing through the treetops or simply relaxing on a knotted rope swing.
All our experience spaces engage the senses and imagination of the young and create a fully ‘natural’ whole family play time feel. Whether it’s ‘playtime’ or ‘relaxation’ time you’re after, we have the knowledge and the know-how to help you achieve your dreams at a sensible budget.

What our customers say...
"I would highly recommend Treehouse Life. Their design of a play area for my children was well thought out and fitted perfectly into the space we had. They were quick to install and the quality of the materials and the overall build is exceptional. My children love playing there, so in short it was well worth it."
"Paul helped us to add some very special finishing touches to a garden project I designed. Paul and his team supplied and installed a fabulous Rope Bridge to go over a pond. The client was so pleased that Paul was soon back to add a Zip Line!"
"Brilliant in his creativity to ensure safe fun whilst giving the whole family a place to become where ever their imagination takes them. He has unlocked the child in us all and has provided the setting for us to enjoy."
"They built the original treehouse 15 years ago and now it needed some repairs and an extension - both children AND grandchildren are now using it!"
"Clear and speedy communication (nothing worse than having to wait forever for someone to reply to you), followed up by quick action, planning in of dates and completing the mission. Best toy ever. I have actually never left a review on a platform for anything before but Treehouse Life deserves it since they have consistently delivered quality in all aspects of their work."
"Whilst the design was fantastic, the final result is absolutely everything we hoped for and yet in so many ways has exceeded our expectations."

The workmanship and materials are of the highest quality and the pricing has been very transparent throughout the entire project."

Nothing in my house is straight or aligned but he managed to make it look unbelievably fantastic! Everyone who has visited has commented on how lovely the terrace looks now."

They also added some of their own design touches which work really well."

The installation and fixing proceeded like clockwork even through these Covid times and we and our customers couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome!"
"Working with Paul and the team from Treehouse Life has been an amazing seamless experience from the start of the quote to the finish of the installation. Their attention to detail and sense of pride in their work shines through and is second to none. The new Rope Bridge looks wonderful, it is very well built, and has already been a fantastic hit with our visitors aged 2 to 96yrs!"

All are inspired, beautifully installed and great fun for the whole family and friends."
"The kids (plus the bigger kids) absolutely delighted with their new adventure treehouse that Paul and team at Treehouse Life have magically created for them.

"Excellent build and amazing service. Would highly recommend Paul and his team."

He got it straightaway and worked with me all the way through to ensure I was completely happy with it. His team of builders were professional and the job was completed on time. I couldn't recommend him more highly and I will certainly be using him again on other projects."

"Paul and his team were excellent and very professional from start to finish. The project was a Treehouse in Mumbai, India, which was customised for the site requirements. Despite the distance, everything was coordinated brilliantly and Paul and his team finished the job before time. The Treehouse itself was stunning, and the centrepiece for the larger development. We would highly recommend working with Paul."
"Paul and his team of sons and colleagues are a pleasure to have on site. Apart from being extremely professional and skilful, they are polite and clearly enjoy their work."
"We cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone wishing to create a magical play area in their garden or a large adventure area for kids and adults alike. Many, many thanks to the whole team for creating such a fun, safe area for our grandchildren to play in and explore - it has truly brought another dimension to our lives. Who knew babysitting and child-minding could reach this level of fun?”
"It was a delight to work with Paul and his team. Our project was continually evolving throughout the build process and nothing was too much trouble. All members of the team were professional and respectful of policies and procedures within the school grounds. We are 100% happy with our Tree Top Walkway and Zip Wire and would definitely recommend Treehouse Life Ltd. for any Treehouse type project you may have."
"Paul Cameron's enthusiasm towards the challenge and the professional approach he adopted throughout the process made the complete design and build process transparent and easy for us."
"Paul, Charlie and the team did a fantastic job for our home treehouse installation. Super efficient, professional and a real pleasure to have around. Delighted with the finished product, my son loves it and anyone who visits thinks the work done is fantastic. It was also built in the most ridiculous wind and rain conditions, but still built ahead of schedule. Thank you Paul and team, we will be using you again!"
“Outstanding service from Paul and his team with an outcome of the most amazing adventure area for the kids. The initial meeting with Paul was us outlining what we wanted, then he came up with a plan that was spot on for our budget and requirements.

The Tree House is now a beautiful feature of the space as well as a magical place for our clients grandchildren to play, it makes us wish we were young again!"
