Tree houses inspire dreams, and represent freedom from adults and adulthood, from duties and responsibilities, from an earthbound perspective. If we can't fly with the birds we can at least nest with them. This country guesthouse with sloping lawns is the first stop on the Midlands Meander from the northern approach. Drive in through an avenue of splendid Sycamore Trees to the Guesthouse and Tea Garden. The garden provides quiet privacy for gentle walks, bird watching and views of the Drakensberg.
