Voted Best Tourism Experience and Self Catering Experience of the year 2016-2017
You'll experience the height of luxury at the award winning Treehouse Hotel, nestled in the tree canopy above the 600 acre Reserve at Port Lympne Reserve in Kent.
The Little Touches
Upscale luxe meets on-trend minimalism in your glass fronted treehouse, perfectly designed for a natural retreat with comfort and serenity in mind. The award winning self-catering suites have two spacious double bedrooms, an open plan living and kitchen area and bathroom with shower and bath included.
Experience the Reserve on your personal golf buggy. Access areas that are not open to the public and see the wild in a different light. Explore the park before official opening hours from 8:30am and enjoy special routes around the park after hours.
Set in a beautiful landscaped garden, at the heart of Port Lympne Reserve, the new Babydoll’s Wood Fired Pizza is sure to delight lovers of authentic Italian cuisine. The stylish and modern restaurant, has been named after the much loved gorilla, Babydoll, who at the grand old age of 55, is the last surviving original Howletts gorilla.
Open every day from 12.00pm to 10.00pm you can relax in the garden, or curl up on the comfy sofas and armchairs on the veranda with a glass of prosecco and a selection of antipasti, before tucking in to a freshly prepared wood fired pizza or pasta dish. We also offer gluten free pizza, alongside a selection of wines, beers and non alcoholic drinks.
Alternatively, you can eat at the 4* Port Lympne Hotel, just a short buggy ride away. Enjoy breakfast overlooking our Rhino paddock, while taking in the scenic views across the Romney marsh and English Channel, all from your private balcony!
Or after a day spent exploring the reserve in your personal golf buggy, why not relax at the Treehouse Clubhouse and enjoy the roaring indoor fire in the winter, or bask in the afternoon sun on the lawns in the summer. You can enjoy a drink from the well-stocked bar as you chat to your fellow guests and our rangers, or play games and enjoy the warmth of the outdoor fire pits as you toast marshmallows and watch the sun set over the rhino paddocks.
