Accommodation at Sycamore Avenue Treehouses:
Romantic Treehouse (Sleeps 2):
This is our smallest, quirkiest treehouse, built onto a tree whose generous branches provide support and a leafy retreat from the sun. Take it easy in the hammock on the platform and catch the sunset views of the Drakensberg. For the cooler times, there is a fireplace inside that supplies warmth and good cheer. Indulge yourselves in the private Jacuzzi spa bath. This treehouse is a favourite among our honeymooners.

Fantasy Treehouse (Sleeps 2 - 4):
This treehouse has three levels and sleeps two adults and two children. On the bottom level is a sitting room with fireplace, which also boasts a large wooden chess set. The main bedroom has a glassed shower and there is a toilet. The kidsf room has its own toilet as well. An aerial walkway leads you to your separate, private
Jacuzzi spa bath (spa in the sky).

Faraway Treehouse (Sleeps 2):
Our newest treehouse, built on two levels into an ancient Sycamore tree. Beautifully hand-sculptured, coloured flowers adorn the walls.

Malaria free area

The Natal Midlands is an area of gently rolling hills with green farmlands, lovely rivers and streams, and indigenous and commercial forests. The area has been a haven for rural and creative people since the early 1800s. In spring and summer, the hillsides are covered in carpets of green, dotted with abundant wild flowers. During the crispy cold autumns, the leaves and grasslands turn burnt orange and yellow, and during winter, the air is frosty and sometimes there is even snow. You will also find some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the province, excellent fly-fishing, and an amazing variety of craft shops and home industries along the route known as the Midlands Meander.

Area Information:
In the area - golf courses, horse riding, trout fishing, forest canopy tours, hot-air ballooning, sightseeing, fantastic restaurants and pubs, and close to the Drakensberg. Ask at reception for brochures and the Midlands Meander Guides to all that is on offer.

Really pleasant venue and Gary and his team was really great.
Solly Engelbrecht Feb 2021
This was such a different experience. My children loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of the tree house. My husband and I were fascinated with all the woodwork and attention to detail. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The dinner and breakfast were delicious, wholesome farm style food cooked beautifully. We would definitely love to visit again

What a special weekend! Something unique and different that I would defintely recommend to anyone looking for a bit of reconnect time and de-stressing. The hosts are fabulous and lovely people who try and accomodate wherever they can. And of course the food....let's not forget the unforgettable food...good old fashioned home-cooking but with a taste that is undescribable.
The craftmanship on the houses are also something to really appreciate, wow.

Thank you for a lovely time...most definitely will be seeing you again!
