The location is beautiful with a stunning view over rolling countryside. Secure garden is ideal for dog. Hot tub great. House is lovely and airy but paintwork could do with a touch up. Couch and some cushions a bit tired.

The Lodge was just what we needed for our family holiday in the country. With three bedrooms and a pull out couch it had the right amount of room for the four of us without losing the cozy feel. The property surrounding the home was spectacular and perfect for a nice, scenic hike. Proximity to Perth and St Andrews was ideal and the surrounding smalRead moreler towns provided a great place to get a nice bite to eat and the necessary provisions for the home.

The lodge is very stylish with great amenities. A great selection of utensils etc you need to cook with. Quite central to all the places we wanted to visit, and great for the dog, as he could run freely in the garden as he does at home. Really pleasant and helpful owners.

Reviewed by Lauri, 22nd June 2018

This holiday rental was perfect in every way. Clean, fully equipped with more than we could have expected and the views were phenomenal! We would return in a heartbeat. We have 2 young children and the cot and high chair we were provided with was perfect. There was a large amount of indoor and outdoor toys to keep our 4 year old occupied and the hoRead moret tub was a fantastic place to relax once the children were sleeping. We fell in love with the area. Hide
