“Owners are as amazing as the surroundings”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Walking, strolling, bird watching running, mountain biking, rock climbing, quiet romantic spots, streams, rivers, lochs, peace and quiet, great place for all the above and more.

Stargazing on the veranda at night was fantastic, a nearby forest has a ark sky award for low light pollution and this place, the stars, wow, lovely.

Walking, there are several peaks nearby and beautiful views, can be dangerous when the weather comes in though, so plan walks well. Easy to navigate in this area due to the valleys and peaks, plenty of deer, I saw an Otter only 50 metres away from the lodge, I was only 2 metres away from him/her.

First morning I woke up there, I looked out the window at the stream and was greeted by a lesser spotted woodpecker, I saw Red Kytes, Buzzards and many more.

Haven't got a single bad thing to say about the place.

I was there when we had a crazy amount of snow, I was snowed in at the end of my time and the owners were extremely accommodating, was splendid, cosy, delightful.

Kitchen was well stocked with everything one needed and the lodge was warm, even in the worst of the snow, want to get snowed in there again!

Will be there again.

Liked best: Every morning while breakfast was cooking, I strolled to the bridge outside and stood with a fresh cup of coffee looking down the valley and the snow covered mountains and hills, I loved the sky on clear nights, property was beautiful and the people
Liked least: Leaving

“I visited Paradise!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

In May I stayed at the River Ken Cottage. I had chosen it among others, as the surroundings looked so tranquil, which was just what I needed. The location was perfect, the air clean and the hills beautiful...my next door neighbour was the river Ken, who´s quiet stream sang a quiet lullaby each evening.
The cottage was perfect: clean, and had everything I needed.
The long walks were beautiful, even on a rainy day! I saw plenty of wild life, especially deer and foxes, sheep, and was lucky enough to even see a black grouse, among plenty of other birds. I was happy I brought my binoculars! The setting was so very romantic!
But to top it all, the owners were extremely helpful with everything, and truly made me feel welcome...and yet they respected my privacy too, which I was very grateful for. I cannot recommend this place high enough....I´m sure I´ll be back every year, just hoping they will be able to accomodate me again!!
Sincerely
Dorthe Bentley
