“Great location”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at the lodge in mid March for 3 nights and would definitely go back. The view from the living area and decking is fantastic. The general location is lovely and within easy distance of numerous places of interest.

“Definitely returning :)”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is our first stay at Pine Marten lodge but certainly won't be our last (hopefully). The lodge itself is perfect - the owners have thought of everything that could possibly make your stay enjoyable. It is the attention to detail that you appreciate - especially if you are staying for a week. The lodge has all the mod cons and comforts of home - you couldn't possibly wish for anything (except a hot water bottle! Not for heat as the lodge is very well heated and warm, but for sore backs at end of long day walking). The lodge has a welcoming homely feeling - you can imagine yourself staying for months on end!
The views from the lodge are amazing and the sound of the river is comforting. The lodge even provides seating and tables outside (with lighting and a BBQ) so you can enjoy the views on a warm summers evening.

Having a look around the rest of the park, I do think Pine Marten is one of the better places to stay, in terms of its location, size and décor (it really is designed tastefully).
The park itself it located well and we felt quite central to all the main sites and places to visit in the area.

If I had to criticize it would be for things outside the control of the owners of this lodge. We came with the intentions of relaxing for the week - we imagined being holed up in this wonderful lodge with its beautiful views. However, due to the fact that the lodge next door, which is two metres away was being built we had to listen to the workmen's radio and banging and drilling all day, everyday. My partner, who is a carpenter felt like he never got away from the building sites he works on. The park itself also have this very strange habit, where every day 2 men with extremely loud leaf blowers spend hours right outside the lodge blowing all debris along the road - no chance for afternoon naps!

Despite this, I would definitely return - after all, the lodge next door is almost finished! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and are already thinking of returning again soon. We would thoroughly recommend this lodge if you were planning on staying in this area. We are very much reluctant to leave in 2 days time :(

“Highly recommend Pine Marten Lodge”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This is our second stay at the lodge, the location is stunning and the home comforts of the lodge are second to none. After a days hill walking there was nothing better than returning to the comforts of the well appointed lodge and it's fantastic views up and down the River Tilt and surrounding hills.
We will be planning our third stay for sure.

“Fantastic lodge in great location.”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was our first visit to the Pine Marten lodge and the river tilt park and must say had a fantastic time. The lodge itself is of exceptional standard and quality and has all the mod cons which contributed to an easy and comfortable stay. The views from the balcony of the river tilt and the surrounding hills are stunning. We traveled in a party of 3, one of whom has a physical disability but the lodge offered plenty of room to move around throughout.
Coming back from a days sightseeing to relax in the large soft sofa finished the day of perfectly. I will certainly recommend the Pine Marten to friends and family.
The Owner kept in touch through email with instructions on how to access the park and all relevant instructions and our deposit was returned in good time with a thank you.
We are planning on going again to the river tilt park and we were so impressed with the pine marten that we won't consider anywhere else to stay

This was our 2nd stay at Pine Martin and we have also stayed elsewhere at River Tilt Park previously. The Park and surrounding area is great with loads of places to visit and lots of walking routes, but what makes your visit is the lodge itself. It is furnished to an extremely high standard, with everything you need, and once you sit down on the sofas you won't want to move - both from the comfort and from the amazing view you will have of both the river and the hills. This lodge is in the most perfect spot as it gives views both up and down the river and this is enhanced by the side window wall. Whether because we had been before, but it doesn't feel like you are in a rental property, its just feels like being at home (a very nice home!) and it is a great place just to chill out (if you have a day of rain like we did in Feb). When we return to River Tilt we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.
