  • "Fantastic property set in a beautiful location."

    The property was beautifully furnished, and the kitchen had all of the utensils and tools we might need. Not a single drawback with the property, and we're already planning our next visit!

  • "We had a lovely stay at the lodge."

    The property is decorated beautifully and it was equipped with almost everything you would need (tiny thing is we could have done with better plastic plates/bowls/cups for the kids but this is not a big issue!) It was very clean. The location is excellent, really peaceful and feels off the beaten track but actually very close to lots of activities and many walks right on your doorstep. We would definitely stay again.

  • "The lodge is set in a clearing in the woodland along with just four others, with local walks immediately adjacent."

    It is very clean and well equipped and although I had doubts about the air source heat pump, but it kept us very warm in the cold weather. Would definitely book again in the future.

  • "Great property."

    Two points: Drain needs fixing (loose) in the downstairs shower. No plug in sink. Great lodge, very comfortable and great layout. Will use again.

  • "Fantastic break, property very well thought out with everything you need."

    A mirror in the bathroom (there's a song in there) would be nice. Hope to return. Would recommend highly.

  • "Absolutely loved our stay at Wildcat Lodge."

    Very warm, immaculately clean and super comfortable. We loved how the lodge was really set up for activity holidays. We had 4 bikes and the bike storage area and bike wash was brilliant. The location was very private and you felt like you were really away from it all. Wifi also good for general use. Had no issues and husband had to do a bit of work too whilst there. Not sure how well it would cope with video calls etc but considering you are in the middle of a forest it was very good. Brilliant cycle routes locally, our favourite being around Loch Morlich. Stunningly beautiful. So much to do, you won’t be bored! We have 2 boys and they loved the tubing on the caingorm mountain. There is also Loch Insh activity centre just a mile or so up the road which has all sorts of activities and a small dry ski slope. Worth a visit. Aviemore itself is a lovely little town, there is a Tesco and Aldi, along with loads of coffee shops, gift shops etc. Thanks for a wonderful holiday, we will definitely be back

  • "Had a lovely weeks holiday at this lodge."

    Although we had neighbours either side you never heard them. Lodge a perfect place for peace and relaxation. We had no hob for the first four days till owner organised two individual portable hobs to arrive at house. Loved the outside log burner. The woods behind house were perfect for walking and the river so handy for wild swimming. We will definitely be back.

  • "I don't think the carpets had been vacuumed or the furniture moved, when sweeping the floor."

    A heating engineer arrived on the Wednesday, of which we were not notified. The hob on the cooker broke, we were told it would be fixed within 2-3 days, but hadn't been repaired when we left, this meant we had to through food away that we were unable to cook as we had no hob. Top bathroom needs a mirror. Saying all this we would stop at Feshiebridge lodges again.

  • "If you like peace and quiet then this is the place for you."

    Although all 4 lodges and the 2 apartments were booked we experienced total tranquility. We sat outside by the fire in the evening and could not hear a sound from the other groups. Gorgeous walks on the doorstep too. Hope to return again in autumn. Highly recommend.

  • "Wildcat Lodge is clean, comfy, warm and spacious accommodation."

    The shower is great and there's plenty of hot water the beds are super. It's surrounded by beautiful quiet woodland and you can watch red squirrels playing in the trees. There are a few things that could be improved including a welcome book with local and house information, enough washing up liquid and dishwasher tabs for the week, and at least a couple of nights logs -it seems strange to advertise that the lodge has a woodburner but expect you to buy logs from a not very local garage. The main problem though unfortunately is the noise from the air source heat pump outside the downstairs bedroom and the boiler situated in the middle of upstairs. These were so noisy that we had to turn the heating off at night.

    Will definitely be booking again, my mum has already booked it in May after seeing our photos! It is beautiful!

  • "Guilt made us cut our trip short (would the Scottish border even close because of the virus doing the rounds?"

    ) but this accommodation was fantastic, immaculate, very stylish, and very well kitted out, with everything you could need and more. Moreover, It was in a lovely,peaceful setting, amidst pine forests. We have already been recommending it to family members and would love to stay again. A few brochures about things to do in the local area might have been a nice, extra touch, even a free map but one could obtain these elsewhere easily enough. And, it wasn't possible to get your car as close to the lodge as you might wish, if you had a lot of luggage, or shopping. This is by far the nicest holiday accommodation that we have ever stayed at.

  • "The lodge was beautiful."

    Very clean. Great set up and layout for a family. The setting in the woods is stunning. And although there are 4 lodges right next to each other, it feels completely private. Communication with the manager was excellent.
