A UNIQUE Tenbury business has scooped a coveted top award.

Founded by husband-and-wife sustainable design team John and Nicki Beavan, Treeopia at Parsons Hall Farm in Kyre, just outside Tenbury, has won the Visit Worcestershire Tourism Awards award for self-catering accommodation of the year 2023-24.

Treeopia opened in 2019 in an area of historic woodlands at the Beavans' 13th century medieval farmstead.

Their vision is to create a leading destination as a super-deluxe, romantic and idyllic treehouse venue, where discerning guests with an ethical and environmental conscience can holiday responsibly and relax, unwind, restore and reconnect with each other and with nature.

The two treehouses, named Vivianna and Eathelin, took nine years to design and build, and were handcrafted from recycled local wood by cabinet maker Mr Beavan.

Sustainably designed around two living, majestic ash trees, the treehouses promise opulent interiors and modern-day connections but not at the expense of the environment.

Catering to adults only, the treehouses are set in more than four acres of private grounds, with secluded woodland, waterfalls, and lakes to roam around.

The couple said they are feeling "very humbled but extremely honoured" to have won the award, and that they are looking forward to representing the county at the national awards in June.

The business took home the award for ethical, responsible, and sustainable tourism at the Visit Worcestershire awards last year, while they were also named Visit Worcestershire winners for self-catering accommodation in 2021-22, and won gold in the Visit England awards that same year.
