Every year, we are delighted to have both returning guests (some have been returning for over 20 years ) and new guests, thank you all for your kind comments in the lodges visitor books and online, below a few of them from 2016 / 2017

“Lovely warm, cosy and clean lodge. Perfect for a winter visit to Forres. Very welcoming – Simon spent time with us at the beginning of our stay explaining local places of interest – ideal given that we had never been to the area and were only there for a few days. Would definitely return if we are in the area again.” Sonia February 2017

“Booked the lodge for me and a work colleague as we were working at the nearby army barracks. From the booking until we left, Simon was on hand to answer all of out questions. The lodges are super comfy, warm and really homely. We had a 3 bed, and it was so spacious!” Stephen November 2016

“We stayed for 5 nights, we are a family of 4 and stayed in one of the two bedroom lodges ‘alves’. The lodge was perfectly sized for us and was very clean, modern and comfortable. It had everything we needed for our stay and more-we particularly enjoyed watching the birds at the feeders every morning. It really is a lovely setting for a relaxing break and it’s very nice that you are able to explore the woodland.  I would highly recommend a stay here, we have family in the area and will definitely be back!” Claire Oct 2016

“The facilities are exactly as described, the cleanliness & location surpassed expectation. A perfect place to stay to tour round Moray & further north if you want to self cater & don’t want to pay for amenities/luxuries you won’t have time to appreciate – swimming pools, gyms, spa’s etc.- & don’t want to eat out all the time. A well equipped kitchen meant we could visit local shops & prepare our own meals in the evenings & enjoy with a glass of wine without having to drive. Although it was just my husband & I, it’s certainly a place I would have taken my children for a weeks holiday when they were younger.” Heather June 2016

“Everything we could have thought of was provided ie dishwasher tabs, bin bags, cloths, towels. Bedrooms – nice bedding & blankets, nicely done. Bathroom large. Spent most of our time in the conservatory. Even though we are not “out-doors” type people was still a very pleasant break. Very friendly owners. Far better than the average self catering” Sarah June 2016

“The lodge was lovely, especially the big window at the front overlooking the lake. It was spacious for our family of 4 & our dog” Linzee November 2016
