Visitor Eilidh Fraser said: ‘Want to feel like you are royalty in your own beautiful country home … this is the place.. Alice and the team made us feel like we were a- listers from start to finish and went above and beyond to give us the perfect wedding and stay… I have never felt so happy and no one had ever made me feel like these guys have. The lodge – unreal, views – breathtaking and the treehouse … well it’s a treehouse that adults can go into! Magic was born here.’
Rebecca McCann from Edinburgh added: ‘Our wedding was held in the magical treehouse. It was simply wonderful and I still feel like I’m floating on a cloud. Alice and her team were so friendly, welcoming and attentive to all of our needs – I can’t thank them enough. The decor in all of the rooms is beautiful and all of the food throughout our stay was excellent. There is enough space in the Lodge for guests to socialise or to find a quiet corner to themselves for a bit of peace. The grounds are tidy and well tended and it was lovely to walk around. We had an absolutely amazing time and we would stay again in the blink of an eye.’
