  • "Lovely accommodation."

    Peaceful location but central to lots of places to visit. The only hitch was difficulty with getting WiFi. Especially and some places needed to be booked in advance.

    Great location with good facilities and shop, pub, supermarket etc only a short drive away. Reassuring also in relation to COVID regulations etc. Lovely welcome pack on arrival.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting away from the town."

    Enjoyed watching the chickens and ducks in the backyard which was a daily delight. Accommodation was spotless, beautifully laid out for personal space and Janette, the host, had provided us with some lovely eggs and wine on arrival which was a nice touch. The location was perfect for our sightseeing trips and the town of Blairgowrie 2 miles away where we enjoyed some lovely walks by the river. Although host and family were on site more or less we were not bothered by anyone unless we approached them first to speak. Social distancing was always maintained. We took our own dishes, towels, cutlery, pillows etc. so as well as keeping us safe it was less work for the host on departure. Hopefully when we use it again we may not feel we have to do that. However, all dishes, cutlery etc. in the cupboards were spotless on arrival and the king size bed was soooo comfortable. All in all a wonderful break in a beautiful part of Scotland.

  • "The welcome pack was a very kind thought (the fresh eggs left for us were very enjoyable)."

    The Lodge was very well equipped and the bed was extremely comfortable. Loved seeing the chickens, ducks, sheep and mollie the horse from our rear window. Thanks again Jeanette for a super break and best wishes to Murray. Hope to see you again. Pat & Nigel from 29th October to 5th November 2019.

  • "Firstly the Lodge was clean and well equipped, even with a washing machine, which is not stated on the list."

    Sadly though we left early due to lack of sleep because there is a hen and duck pen with three cockerels that crow constantly from before 5am everyday, outside the window at the back of the property, which is not shown on the photos. We also had three out of the six days without the front view (which is why we booked this property) due to the owners motorhome being loaded and unloaded. Note welcome pack of wine and eggs but no tea or coffee so make sure you have your own on arrival. So for the cost it was a big disappointment as compared with the many Sykes cottages we have visited, for the reason of the cockerels other people need to know before booking.

    Hello form The Lodge. All our guest and invited and encouraged to discuss with ourselves anything that is effecting their stay that may have an negative impact on their time with us. Issues raised from feedback could have easily have been rectified within a short period of time as we are available at all times to address any concerns that our guests may have. We hope our long standing past reviews are a reflection of our persistent focus to detail and satisfaction of our guests. The cockerels are in the process of being re-homed. Property Owner

    A lovely quiet location, but only 2 miles from Blairgowerie. We certainly recommend, following a recent week's holiday in the sunshine, and we look forward to returning next year all being well.

  • "The Lodge was a real home from home."

    It's not often we go away and can feel as comfortable just sitting, sleeping or working in the kitchen as we did here. It had everything we needed and more. The location was great and even the wildlife was a joy to hear and watch. Our hosts had provided everything and they were friendly and helpful and they knew they were there should we need anything. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing and comfortable holiday in a beautiful location.

  • "The photo's of the cottage on your website are well out of date."

    They showed the view from the rear window across the fields. This view is now obscured by trees, meaning no view & no light from that window. A table top ironing board is provided, however there isn't a plug socket near to the breakfast bar worktop that allows sufficient cable length for the iron. Meaning that the microwave & kettle needed to be moved for the worktop space. Similarly the mirror is attached to the bathroom door whilst the sockets are on the wall near the bed so there is insufficient cable length on the hair dryer. I had my own hair dryer with me & also one provided both cables weren't long enough. Duck feather duvet & pillows provided which are not good when your an asthmatic. Dirty chair covers in the bedroom area. Double glazed unit in front door broken & inner glass masking taped. Door didn't fit, & you could see daylight through the bottom corner. Dirty net curtains at the bedroom window. The bathroom floor was really slipy, the bath mat didn't have a rubber back. So we used a towel, otherwise would have put the rubber shower tray mat under the bath mat. Despite these minor issues, the owners were great, though we only saw them on arrival. The cottage was warm & comfy

    Only drawback, the bathroom facilities are very small; my partner has some mobility issues and found it very difficult. However, it was all accurately shown in your advert so lesson learned. We will check more thoroughly next time

About the location

BLAIRGOWRIE

Kirriemuir 12 miles; Dundee 12 miles; Perth 19 miles.

The red sandstone town of Blairgowrie is situated on the bank of the river Ericht, where it emerges from spectacular gorges in Strathmore. With good shops, great restaurants and coffee bars, it makes an excellent town to start exploring Perthshire and the beautiful Angus Glens. Surrounded by rolling fields, famed for their berries, the town is overlooked by hills and mountains, and is the main link to Scotlands largest ski centre at Glenshee. The surrounding countryside is the perfect terrain for horse riding, cycling, mountain biking and hill walking, whilst golfers are well-catered for with several excellent courses (including Rosemount) locally. Gleneagles and championship courses of Carnoustie and St Andrews are also within easy reach. Marvel at the world’s tallest beech hedge at Meikleour (600m long and 30m high), see Meigle’s collection of Pictish sculpted stones, or listen to stirring tales at Glamis Castle, the setting for Macbeth and said to be Scotlands most haunted castle! The small town of Dunkeld is also worth a visit with its historic cathedral, riverside walks, impressive trees, such as the Birnam Oak and parent Larches of Dunkeld, and the Hermitage, which offers breath-taking waterfalls. Abundant wildlife frequent the many surrounding woodlands, from red squirrels, foxes and deer to Swifts, Goldcrests and Buzzards, with breeding Ospreys seen at nearby Loch of the Lowes.
