Children at Three Tree Hill

Three Tree Hill is a nature lovers paradise, so the perfect place for you to get outdoors & active with your children. There are a variety of marked walking trails that are available for you to explore. For added adventure, why not take a compass & the Artillery Trail map & see if you can find all the British gun positions on Three Tree Hill?

Children's nature based activities include walks, horse rides, croquet, archery, shrimp and tadpole collecting, butterfly / insect catch and pinning, birding.
We offer an outside play area for children with a jungle gym, trampoline, obstacle course, sand pit and fantasy house. In the mornings children can collect eggs from our layers in the coup & take them through to the kitchen to be cooked for breakfast! A short hike (with a packed picnic lunch) to the Magic Faraway Tree can be fun too.

Please be sure to reserve one of our Family Cottages (Kiplings, Burchells, Churchills) if you are travelling with children. They have all the amenities needed to make your stay more comfortable. It is possible to fit one extra single sleeper bed  (or cot) into the Double/Twin cottages, which will be suitable for a child under the age of 12 years. However, there will be very limited space in your cottage so is not ideal.

Please be considerate of your child’s behaviour around other guests & do make use of your private Family Cottage dining/lounge facilities where possible, so as not to disturb the peace & tranquility for other guests in our public spaces.

We welcome children of all ages, however, children under the age of 8 years, can't be accommodated in our Churchills Cottage due to the high balustrade & uncovered pool.

Dinner for children under the age of 12 years is served at 6pm, in order to finish-up before other guests arrive for pre-dinner drinks. Children's menu is available here. Kids Menu

Children under the age of 12 years are not permitted on game walks, but are welcome to request a guided Nature Walk adjacent to the reserve, on the farm property.

Children under the age of 16 years will not enjoy the half day Battlefield Tours. We recommend they do the Artillery Trail (either with their parents or with a guide should you prefer) 

Children are considered children until they reach 18 years old, then they pay full adult rate.

Child-minding services & cots are available on request. Please arrange prior to arrival.
Our main swimming pool area has no safety net, limited balustrading and isn't manned. Children are only permitted to swim under adult supervision.
