Description

Sycamore Avenue Treehouses are situated at Hidcote, between Mooi River and Estcourt, within sight of the Drakensberg on the Midlands Meander. We have five eccentric and romantic ‘Treehouses’, made by hand from local woods. Each charming Treehouse has its own Jacuzzi-Spa bath, shower and fireplace nestled into the trees.

The Romantic Treehouse is built into a large pin oak tree and has a Jacuzzi, shower, fireplace and a deck; complete with hammock; in the tree. There is also a small veranda facing Giant’s Castle.

The Fantasy Treehouse has a lounge with fireplace below a children’s bedroom. The main bedroom is on the third floor and has a scenic shower. There are Drakensberg views from all the rooms, including the Jacuzzi (Spa in the Sky) in its own separate water tower.

The Bottle Treehouse - a bottle theme is used throughout, in walls, windows, light fittings, carpets and bedspreads. The Jacuzzi is in the main bedroom and the indoor/outdoor shower is out on the deck. The lower level is a cosy lounge.

The Planequarium has two double bedrooms upstairs, a lounge with fireplace and provision for two children in a bunk bed. The theme is stars, planets and fish. The doors, walls and windows are decorated with sculpted fish and seaweeds, headboards are scattered with stars and fish.

Pegasus has an equestrian theme. Including an original painting of the White Horse with wings and a golden bridle, that inspired poets; a wooden inlay of horse heads in the floor and ceiling. Hand made quilt with the theme of horse on the bed.

Each Treehouse is situated in a secluded spot on our 50 acre estate; take a stroll among the horses, enjoy our English Country Garden or simply relax and while away the day in a hammock, in a tree, away from it all.
