The lodge is set in a quiet area of farmland just off the main road. The bird feeder in view of the back windows is addictive. Woodpecker, nuthatch and all the other usual suspects plus an apple tree full of fieldfare at the front of the lodge made it a slow start every day.
This is a great place for touring a really beautiful area and a perfect place to take your dog. There is a walk directly from the lodge and then choose forest or beach for the other walks. A week wasn’t long enough to see all the places of interest. And don’t go past the Loch Arthur farm shop just along the road. Filled with lovely produce and serving good coffee.
This was our second stay and we enjoyed it very much. Two 50+, two teenagers and two dogs - all very happy. The lodge is clean, tidy, cosy and very well stocked... plus in a great location. We'll definitely be back! Thanks again Alison.
Very well kept Lodge.
This was our first time at this lodge, very well equipped, with everything you need to enjoy your holiday, very clean, like home from home. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
