Absolutely the Best Place to Stay around

Alexandra P,
Not only are the bothies cleaned spotless, but the property and the view are absolutely beautiful with lots to do. The owners are very friendly and accommodating with everything you need. I wish I could have never left.

Holmes get Away

Scott H,
Information prior to the booking was good, and Rob and Claire (owners) were very accomodating. On arrival we were welcomed by the owners and all questions were answered quickly. We stayed in Bothy 1 which was above standard of other lodges elsewhere. Plenty of thought has been put into the placement of the buildings maximising the great views. The lodge had everything we needed and we all had a great holiday and so did our dog. My only issue was the gradient of the stairs, which was highlighted by the owners. My wife fell down at one point (total accident though). I would advise walking down backwards whilst holding the handrail. Missed a double bed. To summarise great holiday, great place and great owners. Thanks Rob and Claire we will be recomending to all. Scott and Sally 😎

Fab New Year break

Bboomarr, Manchester, United Kingdom
What a fantastic last minute find! We booked here to stay for a 3 night 4 day New Year break. We were 2 families with children and a dog each! The bothys were exactly as we expected, there were brilliant kitchen facilities, amazing countryside, great showers (in each bedroom). Rob happily came down when the fire wouldn't start and got us heated up again. The 3 bothys were far enough apart that we felt alone and were not worried about being disturbed or disturbing anyone else. The only downside (and to us it was as expected and thus in no way a complaint) is that these are rustic bothies and this in each room there are built in bunk beds with waterproof mattresses. These are obviously not going to be a comfy as your bed at home. For us, compared to camping they were fine but our friends who do not camp hadn't expected the beds to be as they were. The area around the bothy is gorgeous, the owners were lovely and super helpful and knowledgeable about walks, pubs and the area. We loved it and we hope to come back in the summer.

50th Birthday party check for extra charges

Jayne P, England, United Kingdom
Just recently stayed here, group of 30+. We had an amazing time, the best weekend from start to finish. Bunkhouse and bothies very nice, everything you need. Real fires make it extra cosy and a beautiful setting. Couldn't fault it.....until...ADDITIONAL CHARGES When we booked in March we were quoted x amount of £ for the one night, a few weeks before out scheduled weekend, I got in touch to clarify everything was ok owners then saying they had to price up and charge us an extra 40%as they were loosing out on money after only booking us in for 1 night (originally this was all fine and were given the final price) that was our first issue as we then all had to pay extra, but got on with it and didn't let it spoil our time. The day we checked in we spoke to the owner who said don't rush to leave in the morning (we had believed check out was10am) but like I said he said no rush, take your time bearing in mind we went on a bus and was getting collected by the bus. Following morning we cleaned everything up and got place back to normal, owner pops around about 10am and again states "Take you time, DO NOT rush!" We left just after 11.30 as after speaking to him, we leisurely got ready for our bus to collect us. He has now charged us a £90 late fee and just took this out of the account that paid the full bill!!!!!. Late, yes but after his words NOT TO RUSH!! We are furious as having to ask everyone for more money, so please beware of any extra charges they can stick on your bill. This has put a dampener on our whole weekend, besides this, we had a fantastic time but maybe not be back after this.

Modern eco living

chestervoyager, Chester, United Kingdom
This accommodation comprises a bunk barn (for groups) and luxury bothies. All very modern and eco-friendly. Lovely location with good views - and as it's a light-free zone you get wonderful views of the stars at night. There is reasonable parking space. When full it might take some juggling to prevent the access to the bothies being blocked. Accommodation in bunk barn has all you need. There's a kitchen, dining area (pool table underneath the removable table top), small lounge area, four rooms, a separate shower and toilet block (access back into the main building via access code). The dorm rooms have two bunk beds, one with a double bunk on the bottom. I found the top bunk uncomfortable, partly due to thin mattress and pillow, partly because the bed felt a bit loose and rocking. But it's no different in other bunkhouses, I guess. There are lockers in the rooms and ours had a small shelf table and bench. Electric heater available to boost heat if needed (the place has radiators and an automated wood-chip burner in the lounge area). For all the modernity, the design has some niggles. When full, it can be really cramped around the kitchen (especially if trying to get into the high corner cupboards) and the lounge area is too small for a big group. There are also only 2-3 toilets and showers so there can be a queue or some planning required to avoid waiting. I found the place warm, even on cold nights. Rob and Claire were both welcoming and helpful. Wish them every success with the place. Good to see quality and eco go hand in hand.
