A scheme to create six luxury treehouses at a Durham hotel has been given the green light by council chiefs.
Durham County Council has given planning permission for Ramside Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa to build the accommodation behind one of its golf courses.
Construction work is due to start in February, with the first three treehouses expected to open in June.
The plan is the latest in a string of developments for the Ramside. Owner, John Adamson, said: “We are delighted that Durham County Council has given us the go-ahead to start work on our new treehouses, which will be totally unlike anything else the region currently has to offer.
“Work will start in February on the first three, and we expect to be able to welcome our first visitors in June. We have worked very hard on the design and it is going to be fantastic to finally see them start to take shape.”
The hotel has recently created an additional wing, a second championship golf course and its award-winning spa in recent years.
