Description

This is a Victorian lodge from one angle and a stylish modern building from another, blending the best of both worlds in one holiday house in picturesque Perthshire.

Set within private woodland with a southerly aspect, this large holiday home has a secluded setting, yet is within easy access of Blair Atholl and Pitlochry. Built as a Victorian shooting lodge, in recent years it has been completely renovated, retaining the traditional lodge look to the front, whilst the rear of the property has been given a modern make-over. The overall effect is to have a traditional lodge, but with better use of space and light within. It is located in a leafy Highland glen setting, surrounded by rivers and woodlands. This former shooting lodge, which was renovated in 2004, is a mix of old and new, and is ideal for people who are active and want to enjoy the outdoors.

Retaining many original features, the lodge offers all the facilities required for a self-catered holiday, with a large well equipped kitchen, and with the addition of a larder, utility room, drying room and a games room. Whilst there is a single bedroom available if you wish to bring a cook, all the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated on the floors above. With garden furniture to the front of the house, it is an ideal setting on a summer evening. Whilst two dogs are allowed in the house at ground level only, there are also kennels available on site. This is an ideal base to have a family holiday to discover Perthshire and a complimentary family pass to Blair Castle is included as part of the booking and is at the house on arrival.

  • Reception Rooms
    Accessing the house by the rear of the property takes you into the long inner hall, which is glazed on both sides and is an excellent space for some additional storage of items. The drawing room and the sitting room can be found at the front of the lodge with views overlooking the front lawn. The drawing room has a selection of different sofas around the open fire and a table in the bay window. There is an eclectic feel about this room, as it is part formal and part comfortable. Next door is the sitting room, which is a more relaxing room to be in, albeit that it has sofas, an open fire and a nice bay window as well. The TV is located in this room and children can gather in here and chill out without adults. Along the entrance hall, there is a substantial old games room, which is an extension from the lodge and has the feel of an old draughty Scout’s hall. It is great fun to be in, with a full size snooker table and a darts board, but could be cold at certain times of the year.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The kitchen is located at the corner of the lodge and is a delightful room that attracts a lot of light with a table and chairs that can seat up to 10 people within the bay window. With a large cooking range and an additional oven, this is a kitchen that is used to cooking for large numbers. With plenty of work space, as well as a work-island, this is the perfect space for a cook to crack on with any meal. The larder next door is the place to store all the foodstuffs. Additionally there is a utility room. The dining room is a more formal room that can seat up to 16 people around the lovely mahogany table.

  • Located half a mile away from the hamlet of Calvine, situated within its own secluded spot on a country estate, in the foothills of the Cairngorms. With lawn to the front and access to a large walled garden space, there are plenty of areas for children to explore.  Blair Atholl is the nearest village, with a village store, pub and hotel. Pitlochry, which is 12 miles away, has a major Coop, shops and restaurants. The estate offers as extra, a Ranger service and additional activities, like pony trekking, guided land rover tours, fishing on the river or hill lochs can all be arranged. For golfers the nearest golf course is at Blair Atholl. Blair Castle and the House of Bruar are nearby for outings.

  • ACCOMMODATION
    A cooks' quarters consisting of a ground floor single bedroom (with TV) with e/s shower room, with own access, is available to those who wish to bring a cook.

    GROUP TYPES
    Due to prior bad experience we will not accept bookings from all male/female groups whose sole purpose for the holiday is to celebrate a ‘stag or hen’ style get together/party. Any booking made where the purpose of the holiday is later found to fall into this category, will be cancelled without notice, or refund.

    PETS
    Dogs are welcomed on the ground floor of this property only, kennel also provided.

    PRIVATE WATER SUPPLY
    There is a private water supply at this property, which is checked and approved on an annual basis by the local authority.

Lodge was great and everyone had a fantastic stay. Facilities were good. Only downside was there was only one room with a shower cubicle (other rooms had hand held hose showers) and some of the upholstered furniture was tired. We would visit the lodge again if we were looking for a property of that size.

Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased you had a fantastic time. Whilst what is available in the the bathrooms is advertised, we appreciate that there is a fine line between "character" and "tired". All comments are passed on to the management of the lodge, which may influence their plans for any upgrading within the house.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if we can help with any future trips and remember to claim your loyalty discount next time!
