          Stayed here at the Ducks Lodge cabin in November 2016 with other half for two nights. Superb setting in the pine woods out of Nethy Bridge. It was late cold and dark upon arrival but warm welcome from staff who showed us around the grounds...More

          While the dark evenings of November are now but a memory you came in the season of spectacular star lit nights, a waft of woodsmoke from your hut and two others you cannot see and the waterfowl dressed in their most exquisite winter plumage cruising...More

          It is difficult to express the amazing time we spent here as it was only for 2 nights and we wished it was for longer! We stayed in the Lambing Bothy which sits away from the main area, in a paddock with chickens and sheep...More

          Thanks so much folks. At the Lambing Bothy, in its acre of grassland, you live as close neighbours to all the creatures you spotted - and more. Usually they see you before you see them. Then, at the Poet's Seat and blessed with a sinking...More

          My fiancé and I stayed here (in the Duck's Nest) for a couple of nights in late February/early March. Such a cozy relaxing place. Pure tranquility. The wood burning stove was fired up for our arrival, and we were given a concise but comprehensive tour...More

          It seems that the combination of a difficult to get out of bed and the invigorating bush shower suited you both just fine. There's something very special, folks tell us, about the blending of contrasts, the frosty air of winter tingling the skin and the...More
