A company is seeking planning permission to build two treehouses which could be used by tourists. 

Crown and Canopy has submitted plans for a site at Trefenton at Pillaton, near Saltash.

It wants to build the two treehouses which it says are “essentially elevated cabins” which could be used as holiday accommodation. The units would be targeted at couples and be used year-round.

The proposals would be the extension of an existing holiday let business with two holiday cottages already in operation on the site. The new cabins would have self-catering facilities with a kitchen, bedroom, toilet and shower.

A planning statement issued with the application states: “The proposed development would enable the applicants to derive a sustainable income from an eco-tourism-based business that complements and enhances the existing, more traditional holiday lets.

“This expansion will support the local economy by allowing more overnight visitors to stay in the area, thus supporting local businesses and services.

It will also diversify the tourist accommodation provision through delivery of high-quality, outdoor based luxury retreats.

“The applicants are keen to offer bespoke and unusual accommodation in this beautiful location and allow guests to benefit from a back to nature break. There is easy access to the Cornish countryside, coastline and various cultural and historical attractions nearby.”
