Our family of four, incl two boys of 9 and 11, stayed for 2 nights in Philosophers Perch in July. The treehouse was kitted out very well; the outside bath and toilet a delight to my children, the kitchen had all that was needed for long or short stays, heating blankets and hotties to ward off the cold. The tents were wonderfully cosy and what a treat to have our meals in a fabulous kitchen amongst the trees and birds. The walk down to the river is lovely, and the pools and waterfall spectacular, well worth the climb, which we didn't find too difficult. There is plenty to do on site, from pool, chess, board games, ping pong, reading of books and magazines that were provided and of course balancing across the swimming pools' beam, and subsequently enjoying the inevitable splash into the water, even although it was the middle of winter and no more than 12 deg outside. We were visited regularly by delightful Katja the cat which my sons were tempted to stow away in one of our suitcases. We've stayed in many self-catering places in many parts of the world, but this is one of my favorites. A beautiful and special place that lacks absolutely nothing, run by two wonderful people. We will be back!
