This was our second stay at Tail Race Lodge and we enjoyed it as much as we did the first time. The Lodge is perfectly situated over looking the river, perfect for having morning coffee on the deck! Andrea & Gordon have decorated beautifully and beds are so comfy! They are very good communicators and answer questions promptly.
My family stayed in tailrace for 3 nights and couldn't fault the accommodation, surroundings and hospitality from the owners. The lodges situation on the banks of the river tilt was stunning, even more so when it was in full flow after the heavy September rain. The lodge itself was just the right size for the 4 of us with plenty of wardrobe space, a modern kitchen and a couple of bathrooms with great showers. The hut outside made a good store for our bikes to keep them out of the autumn downpours and the heating was great.
The boys kids really enjoyed the discounted swimming facilities on site and there was plenty to explore on the doorstep.
Our highlight was the superb Saturday night fish n chip experience in the large permanent marquee at the back of the chippy which had space for the kids to play, live entertainment and one of the best stocked craft beer and cider bars I've seen. Only a 10 min walk from the lodge! Sampling the homemade bread from the mill in Blair Atholl is also a must! One word of advice - we hoped to eat in the loft restaurant but both it and the local hotel were full, so you'll need to book ahead as they seem very popular!
