If you ever dream of getting away from it all and camping out in a secluded forest, then this luxury treehouse in Dorset in the UK is just for you. A treehouse is a common childhood dream and London designer Guy Mallinson has turned that into a reality with this beautiful home set up in the forest canopy.

Complete with hot tub, rainshower, sauna, freestanding tub and even a slide (yes, an actual slide) it is the perfect place for a romantic getaway for two. Guy spent just £150,000 (less than $200,000) building it with a team of 20 people, and now rents it out for holiday makers looking for a natural escape.

You can stay in the Woodman's Treehouse from £990 for two nights. Definitely a luxury getaway, but well worth it – we'll race you there!
