Sporting lodges were built to be large and impressive and to house a good quantity of guests all of whom back in the time would have been wealthy landowners and nobility. This lodge is no different. All its rooms feel spacious and will certainly absorb twenty guests without breaking a sweat.
The ground floor consists of 3 reception rooms (lounge, cinema room and drawing room), a dining room, ktichen, utility room, boot room, w.c. and large hall. There's also a ground floor bedroom with ensuite wet room and a steam room. Outside is a small courtyard accessed off the corridor leading into the kitchen
There's seating for up to 14 in the lounge room (with open wood burning fire) and plenty of seating in the main drawing room. The cinema room/TV Snug has a large 65 inch television with full Sky package, Netflix and an X-box.
There's a Bose surround sound in the cinema and a Bose wireless music system downstairs in the drawing room/dining room and sitting room, which allows you to play music directly from your phone. Please be aware due to its elevated position on calm evenings noise travels far, so we ask you ensure all music and noise outside is turned off by 10pm.
There are wifi boosters throughout the house which enables high speed wifi in every room!
On the Terrace
A 6 seater hot tub will be hired in during your stay and placed on the terrace for optimum enjoyment.
Kitchen / Dining
The large dining room has access via French doors to a large terrace with stunning views across Aberfeldy and the Tay Valley. The owner commissioned a 5.5 metre table built in bronze with a patina finish and weathered oak top to comfortably seat 18 guests. Two points of access to the kitchen from the dining room for ease of use.
The commercial kitchen has been specifically designed with large groups in mind. A great deal of thought has been put into providing things like 2 dishwashers and plenty of wet and dry storage space, including 2 extra US style fridge freezers in the utility room to accompany one in the kitchen. A large gas range stove will cater easily for large groups.
There's a washer and separate dryer located in the utility room along the corridor from the kitchen.
The house is offered on a self catered basis with breakfast included in the basic rental, and the owner has partnered with a local catering firm to enable guests to upgrade their holiday to a semi or fully catered option. Please ask the office for price guides. The owner will only allow his nominated caterers to service his property, so if you plan to use an external caterer, they must be pre-approved by the owner prior to booking.
