We have just moved on from spending four very relaxing nights (over Christmas) at Three Trees and would definitely recommend it. Our children (7 and 11) were very warmly welcomed, playing for many hours and also taking meals with the owners' children and other young guests (although they did not have to). We enjoyed a family walk (with the dogs for added company), horse riding, swimming and were able to enjoy an adult game walk with some good sightings. We could also get to the mountains relatively easily but were far enough away to feel as if we were off the main tourist trail. I would definitely recommend Churchills accommodation for a family, it is beautifully finished and gives the extra space that was ideal for us over the holiday period. The views were simply stunning. The main lodge is a very relaxing place to sit and read or simply stare at the view and the food is very good indeed. I would strongly advise allowing more nights than you think you will need for a visit here. It is a place that you need to take the time to enjoy and you find yourself appreciating it more and more as the days pass by.
