A WEDDING venue in Gloucestershire has been being transformed with 250 acres of nature restoration and six amazing treehouses set to open next year. 

Elmore Court, near Quedgeley has announced details of its ambitious plans which include the opening of six unique treehouses in May 2023.

The new treehouses will operate as a self-serviced holiday let, running separately to the wedding business.

Each treehouse is accessed by its own board walk with a wrap-around deck to enjoy the dramatic and varied landscapes.

The new accommodation is set to welcome first guests in late May 2023 with bookings already live to make reservations.

Features include, electric car charging points for each cabin, British cedar cladding with corrugated roofs, cork flooring and poplar ply walls. 

Each treehouse has an outside state-of-the-art kitchen, modern brazier with wood store, seated decking and outdoor bath with views. Inside there are super king-size spindle beds as well as a fully kitted indoor bathroom with a shower. 

The estate now also has a 2,700m2 spring-fed lake for wild swimming.

The historic Elmore estate inhabits a bend in the river Severn which has been the Guise family seat for nearly 750 years with Anselm Guise inheriting it in 2007 from his uncle.

Anselm said: “We are reimagining the estate, taking it back to a closer relationship to the best bit of the ways things were, where the land and the people on it served each other to the benefit of all. 

“As part of the rewilding project it was always a passion of mine to be able to sleep and relax within nature on the estate. 

“This was the main driver to build the treehouses as sustainably as possible and allow more people to come and stay and see what we are doing here.”

The estate has reintroduced rare breeds as part of its rewilding project in 2020 to allow wildlife to flourish including longhorn cattle and Tamworth pigs, plus red deer, and Exmoor ponies are set to arrive soon for grazing.

It also worked in collaboration with the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge to create a new 23-acre wetland area in front of the treehouses to encourage wildlife.
