Relax with loved ones in this stunning retreat with your own private hot tub and sauna, surrounded by outstanding scenery in this outstanding location in the Cairngorms National park.
For a holiday that is all about spending quality time together, this lodge set in the rural northeast of Scotland is a wonderful base for a family of four. It has two bedrooms – one double, one twin – and two dogs are welcome. There’s plenty on offer in the surrounding area to fill your days with exciting adventures, including walks and trails from the doorstep. In the evenings, the TV/DVD will keep children entertained while adults unwind in the private hot tub and sauna.
Inside, the lodge is spacious and the double-height vaulted ceiling and large windows make the open-plan living space light and bright. The interior walls are entirely wood-panelled, in keeping with the natural landscape, and the rooms are uncluttered. The decor is minimalist and the colour scheme neutral, creating a calming atmosphere for a relaxing stay.
Step into the lounge/kitchen/diner, and once you’ve removed boots and coats, head to the bedrooms for a refreshing shower and change into something more comfortable. The lodge is entirely single storey, so tired feet and paws don’t have stairs to worry about. Soak under a hot shower in your en-suite, or take a seat in the sauna, then head to the kitchen to prepare a home-cooked meal. Gather the family around the dining table for dinner. Once plates have been cleared away, play a game or curl up on the sofas for a film night. Afterwards, enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep and wake to spectacular countryside views.
Under cover of the eaves, spend an evening in the hot tub and stargaze when the sky is clear. On warm summer days, dine alfresco on the outdoor table and seating.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
