Your Hosts: Ant & Fi Paton

Nestled in the forest high above Knysna, Tree Spirit Guest Farm offers both self catering cottages in a beautiful rural setting overlooking a dam. It is also a retreat venue offering fully catered weekends with activities like yoga, pottery, hiking, card readings.

We are extremely grateful to awaken each morning in a region blessed with extraordinary illustrations of nature’s bounty. After attending a permaculture course a number of years back we were drawn to live a conscious life filled with happiness and joy, with an awareness of how our everyday choices impact our well-being, our communities and the earth. We set out to find a piece of land where we could enter into a symbiotic relationship with nature.
Tree Spirit is an off-the-grid small holding where we grow food, capture our rain water and harvest the sun to provide our energy. To stay at Tree Spirit is an opportunity to experience this way of living, being conscious of water usage, where food comes from and working with the elements whilst immersing yourself in the beauty of the natural surroundings. If all this resonates with you then this charming, peacful, secluded piece of paradise awaits, providing the peace and solitude to be at one with nature for the length of your stay.
