The lodge was so lovely and absolutely spotless, the hot tub was a god send after a long day. The site where the lodge is situated is very peaceful and the few lodges that are there are well spread out so you feel very private. There was plenty of room for parking next to the lodge. We loved it and will certainly be going back to this lodge!

A beautiful area which was extremely peaceful. The lodge was fully equipped even down to the finishing touches, washing up liquid, hand wash, tea and coffee. The owners had placed two glasses and a miniature bottle of Stags Breath whiskey on the coffee table, a lovely gesture and very tasty!

The surroundings of the lodge along with the fabulous way it was decorated meant we had a really special time. The Hot tub was an added bonus and sitting there in the evening watching the wildlife was an experience never to be forgotton.

My family and I really enjoyed our holiday the lodge is in a great location just 5 minutes off the A9 and so close to an abundance of activities from fishing to zip wiring walking to sailing We were blown away by the beautiful landscapes that surround the area for me the hot tub was the icing on the cake as the weather wasn't the best but that didn't put us off hopping in after a thrill seeking day at landmark forest adventure park. Will definitely be booking again for next year and for two weeks too. #lovethespeyvalley
