  • "We had an utterly amazing time at Red Deer lodge."

    We really fell in love with the beautiful location which was amazingly peaceful and very picturesque. The lodge is very spacious and is well stocked with everything you could need. It is beautifully designed with an open plan kitchen and lounge area and 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 with balconies looking out into beautiful forestry. Lovely large windows throughout for enjoying the beautiful views. All of the soft furnishings and accessories are from John Lewis, a very stylish touch. We so enjoyed sitting in the balcony in the morning enjoying a coffee and beautiful views. There is decked area accessed through the lounge and also a side door so was great for bringing bikes and dogs through, there’s garden furniture as well so we often sat in that area in the afternoon looking out into the forest area. It was so peaceful with birds singing throughout the day, simply amazing. There’s a further decked/covered area at the main entrance which was great for storing jackets and shoes/boots etc. The only problem we encountered was with the induction hob, could only get one of the rings to work, wasn’t sure if the issue was with the hob or the pots and pans. We will definitely be returning to the lodge in the future.

  • "Nice accommodation, comfortable beds, walk in shower particularly good, well equipped kitchen."

    The accommodation was of a high standard but there are a few points that would make it even better. Need some hooks to hang stuff up in the bathrooms, need a better mirror in the upstairs bathroom, an enclosed area at the back of each property so dogs don't wander off around other properties, and need some egg cups. There were only 4 of us staying so sofa and easy chairs fine but would be tight if more staying. And wifi a bit of a palava.

  • "Lodge was beautiful, very very clean."

    Perfect for our family of 4. The lounge area however does not have enough soft seating for 6, could do with another armchair.

  • "We were looking for a remote quiet location within a natural Scotish environment, the location and accommodation were fantastic and completely exceeded our expectation."

    The accommodation was extremely clean and modern with all of the equipment that you could ever require on a break of this nature. The external fire pit and social area were an added bonus to what was a fantastic property.

  • "Gorgeous modern lodge in a beautiful setting."

    Great facilities and finished to a high standard with all the appliances and equipment you’d need for up to 8 people. Lounge seating is limited for full number of guests but plenty of outdoor seating. All in all a fantastic week!

  • "To make this useful feedback- the lodge was plenty big enough, lots of thought for storage and wet weather stuff."

    Nicely laid out and didn’t feel too crowded at all. Very comfortable beds, great showers. The thing overall that would have made The biggest difference to comfort is the installation of insect screens so windows could be opened without midges and wasps ( yes, two wasp nests found and reported) coming in. The upstairs rooms were uncomfortably hot at night, preventing sleep in some instances. The main thing that was disappointing was the lack of induction hob suitable pans. We reported the frying pan initially and were given a new one towards the end of the week- but it was clearly marked not suitable for induction hob. We then checked the other pans and only one was appropriate, which explains why it was so difficult to cook. There were also no oven gloves ( our friends next door did have them). Given that these are self catering cottages that is quite a big fail. A smaller improvement would be the provision of hooks on the back of bathroom and bedroom doors to hang towels on. Location was great. The lodges were well designed so even though they are close together they had privacy and quiet. We would potentially consider booking again.

  • "Firstly we had to pay an extra £400 for this date we were booked for the end of june."

    Luxury it isn't. Back garden is a wood , not enclosed not good for having dogs. Front garden full of wild flowers you couldn't sit out there. Front bedroom couldn't use balcony as there was a wasp nest. Only had 1 tv nothing in bedroom Only 1 wardrobe down stairs, shelf things behind doors in other rooms to hang clothes. Grill pan in oven hadn't been cleaned. When using plates some off them still had bits off food on them, I washed every plate in dishwasher before we used them. Dog and bike wash very good idea it has a tap but no hose. This is supposed to sleep 8 but can only seat 4 sofa holds 3 and 1 chair. To make this luxury they really need to add things like bath sheets not towels. Better sofas for comfort and proper sofabed. More furniture in the bedrooms chair table and mirror for doing your hair and make up. Really nice place on paper but not up to the usual standard that we are use to. Storage in bathrooms to put your
