We bumped into our hosts at the local farm shop who were extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be staying here again and would recommend this property to anyone. Reviewed by Helen5.0★Mar 2023 "We have just returned from an excellent break at West lodge." The house is great, fully equipped with everything you could need and feels really homely and spacious. It has three large comfortable bedrooms and the owners were happy to provide a cotbed for our little one which meant one less thing to pack. The area itself is beautiful, lots of walks not far from the house and having the loch to the rear was a nice bonus. Would definitely recommend! Reviewed by Ian5.0★May 2022 "An amazing property, in a beautiful location." Owners respected your privacy, but we're only a phone call away.

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting, even saw a Deer in the garden ....just amazing ☺️ Same for the Reeki Linn Waterfall and the Loch both a definite must, then either to Peel Farm or The Wee Bear before heading back to chill and enjoy both inside and outside space and scenery. Reviewed by Jamie5.0★Jun 2021 "The property was lovely and the area is very good." I contacted the owners who were very helpful and friendly. They were there if needed but kept a distance. The information on the Sykes website however contradicted it self and was incorrect, they say it's circumstances, but this is the third time I've used them and they got it wrong. Reviewed by Christine5.0★May 2021 "We had a great week and will return." House has everything including a beautiful big lounge and fireplace, and huge bedrooms. Great walks from the door , cycling around the area was stunning , very few cars in May which was perfect , can’t ever imagine the roads getting that busy at other times too! Great walk around the Loch and a couple of nearby places to sit outside for a coffee and a relax. Cairngorms just up the road, stunning countryside all around. Beds comfy, kitchen has everything. Not an enclosed garden so had to keep dog on lead while outside but a terrier just can’t stand still! Other dogs may be fine if they do as they are asked! Excellent , well recommend . And so quiet too! Reviewed by Philip5.0★May 2021 "West Lodge was amazing, the very small walk to the Loch is a must (less than 100m away)." Lots of places near by for walks, which was ideal for me and my dog. The owners didn't interfere in our holiday, but was always a phone call away. We'll impressed will definitely be returning.

Reviewed by Kathleen5.0★Sep 2019 "Very friendly welcome, perfect situation for walks and exploring this part of Scotland." Enjoyed being so close to the Loch, great for wildlife, we're sure we spotted a couple of Ospreys. The Peel farm shop is a short walk away ideal for breakfast, then there the Wee Bear Cafe in the other direction with their mouthwatering cake selection! Reviewed by Amanda5.0★Aug 2019 "There were 6 of us and a dog, the location, local amenities and house itself were absolutely perfect." 5 minutes from the Loch, a coffee shop/lunch venue, 10 mins drive from a shop but you still feel like you are in the middle of a beautiful countryside! Couldn't recommend the property or the lovely property owners enough. Reviewed by Rosie5.0★Jul 2019 "Great house in an idyllic location ." full of original features and bonus of open fire. very homely and well equipped. owners are 5 minutes away by phone call if you need them but otherwise you are left alone. great period property. would benefit from having an extra toilet - I can imagine it might get tricky if there were 6 people staying. we were fine just my husband myself and the dog. Loch is 150metres down the lane. perfect for swimming in and using a kayak- we did both. loved it. I’m sure we will be back. Reviewed by Julie4.7★Jun 2019 "The lodge was a delight with every comfort provided." . Wonderful walk to Loch through rhodedendrums which were at there best when we were there. Could not find spot pictured in photographs though. But apart from that we will return next year. A perfect location ror a holiday , central for so much wonderful scenery and also close to coast. Reviewed by Julie4.7★Jun 2019 "Fantastic house, it was far better than a similar house we booked last year through a different company!" The house was everything we had hoped for and was very comfortable. Alastair came and checked we were ok and could work everything and then left us well alone. Great place and I thoroughly recommend it. Reviewed by David5.0★Jun 2019 "The lodge was just a hundred metres away from the lodge, which meant that my husband could canoe at anytime of the day or late evening!" He had a fantastic time looking at the beaver dams and the wildlife, very peaceful and serene. The lodge has a very authentic look with fires in all the bedrooms and the lounge. The lodge was large, warm and cosy. An ideal location to get away from it all, whilst still only being a few miles away from Alyth or Forfar for any big shopping. On the last day we found the Wee Bear Cafe in Lintrathen Village, just a short distance away from the lodge, which had homemade cakes and light lunches, all delicious would recommend a visit. Reviewed by Marylyn4.7★May 2019 "We spent a very enjoyable week at West Lodge." The house is very spacious but aso comfortable and cosy, and in a beautiful setting with an abundance of wildlife all around. Although in a rural setting the house is within easy reach by car to explore this lovely part of Scotland. There are also numerous walks just by stepping outside the door. There was so much more we wanted to see and do but simply ran out of time! We wish we had booked 2 weeks instead of just the 1, so intend to return in the future. Reviewed by Raymond4.7★May 2019 "The cottage was in a rural location so quiet and peaceful." Comfy beds and lots of towels. Cleanliness wasn’t 100% and it would have been nice to have deckchairs as the weather was beautiful and we only had a bench to sit on. Thank you for your feedback. In the back garden there is a picnic table with bench seating and in the front garden a small bistro style table and chairs set. Additionally we do have deckchairs in the shed but the unexpected Easter heatwave took us by surprise. We would have beenÂ happy to pop round and sort these out for you on request Property Owner Reviewed by Andrew4.1★Apr 2019 "The property is unique and has real character."

Breakfast at Peel Farm and coffee shop. Shopping in Blairgowrie. Pub in Alyth. The living area at West Lodge was very spacious. The kitchen was great for cooking or eating. Dining table in living room was big for larger groups. The bedrooms were huge. Each bed was different so pick your bed carefully. Loads of draws and cupboard space.
