“A wonderful lodge in a delightful setting.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just returned from a really lovely week relaxing in this comfortable lodge. The balcony offered wonderful views across the valley and the delight of frequent and varied visitors to the bird feeder. Each morning a beautiful red squirrel came to enjoy the seeds so thoughtfully provided in a feeder by the owners and we were all enthralled by his visits. The lodge itself was spacious and the sofas (some reclining) were particularly comfortable. Everything was extremely clean (not always the case in holiday homes) and the space very well designed so it was very much a home from home and we all felt there was plenty of room for all six of us (actually 7 for much of the week, since there is an additional comfy mattress on request!)
Peter and Therèse welcomed us on arrival, gave us six of their wonderfully freshly laid eggs and suggested that the children might like to help collect the eggs one morning - which of course they did! The lodge itself is hidden well away from the road but its location on the road down towards the Cairngorms was just perfect for the day trips we had planned. At only 3 miles from Nairn itself, it is also very easy to reach the town (pretty) and beach (glorious) so it was perfect all round.

“The good life”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Now we know why it's called Hiddenglen. Set well back of the road, and approx. 3 miles from Nairn, peace and tranquilly abound in bucket loads. It's a working farm with the everyday comings and goings you would expect.
Cows, sheep, chickens and a couple of dogs blend in well with the relaxing atmosphere and the beautiful view we had from our chalet. The patio doors were open every night so we were able to watch the birds feeding in the garden, in fact I got up early several mornings just to sit outside and watch them.
Our chalet was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. A large selection of books, dvd 's and maps, not to mentioned a well stocked folder with all the "things to do and see" kept us well occupied and made for easy planning.
A stroll round the lake, a boat, some fishing, a walk, or in our case a jog in the woods means there is something here for everyone.
A welcome box of eggs and a card from Therese is a lovely touch to come into as well.
We would certainly be back if we were in the area again.

“A Perfect Spot”

If you’ve ever stayed on one of those chalet sites where the cabins are tightly squeezed in to every corner and you’re always overlooked by the neighbours, then this site is the EXACT opposite. Lovely views, spectacular wildlife (red squirrels, chaffinches, woodpeckers and we heard a cuckoo), remote yet only two miles from Nairn and it’s carry outs, restaurants and supermarkets.
We stayed in one of the three bedroom lodges. It was spacious, comfortable and well designed. The lodges sit on an organic croft farmed by the owners Peter and Therese who were pleasant and helpful throughout our stay. We would be delighted to rebook in future and have already recommended it to friends.

“Beautiful Lodge in amazing location”

Myself and daughter (11) are just back from a holiday at Therese and Peter's Hiddenglen lodge in Nairn. We wanted a place where we could relax in beautiful natural surroundings and we won the lottery with this place! The lodge itself was big, spotlessly clean with a huge balcony and panoramic views. During our stay we identified over 40 birds, and a couple of red squirrels visited our balcony every morning to feast on nuts. My daughter collected the chickens eggs daily and hugged, I am sure, every chicken there! We also went out on the boat many times, very easy to row, and did pond dipping. Therese has made up a Treasure Hunt around the grounds, which was a lot of fun. The area is very child friendly/safe, and there is a large trampoline, slide and sand pit to entertain them. Everything is provided for you, including a large selection of books, games and DVDs. Be sure to read The Long Bridge: Out of the Gulags by Urszula Muskus (Peter's Grandmother), it's an amazing story! There is a copy in the lodge. We were so sad to leave this tranquil place, and it is somewhere my daughter will always have amazing memories of. Therese and Peter made us very welcome from the start and nothing was too much trouble for them, we felt part of the family during our stay and will definately return!!!

“Beautiful location, fantastic lodge”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This is the best self catering we have stayed in. The lodge was spotlessly clean, very large and warm. We were grateful for that as the weather was very changeable! It is in an ideal location for days out, Inverness, Culloden, Fort George etc were only a few miles away. Hidden Glen is beautiful, we saw lots of wildlife from the lodge, woodpeckers, deer, siskins ,the birds are too numerous to mention. I would recommend this to anyone. Although we didn't go with children I'm sure my granddaughter would have loved it as there were lambs, calves and hens on the farm and dolphins to visit in the Moray Firth only a short drive away.
