We booked a silver birch at Strathyre (we usually go for Golden Oak) and found the cabin to be comfortable, but with electric storage heating and no freezer in fridge it lacked a little in quality. When we arrived (around 17:00) the hot tub was cold; and on contacting reception were told to give it an hour or so. Unfortunately... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was such a lovely and relaxing holiday. The cabin was very clean and tidy on arrival and although on first impressions you think that the cabin's are slightly overlooked you don't feel this way when inside or in the hot tub at all. We hired bikes from the bike... More

If you are looking for a peaceful location in stunning countryside, I cannot recommend this listing highly enough! The cabin was very comfortable, spotlessly clean (in fact, it looked brand new!) with everything we could have wanted, and the private hot tub was fantastic! The only activity we booked was the segways - the paths along the edge of the... More

Stunning location, awesome cabins (and hot tubs :) ) and friendly staff. Booked on the basis that luxury actually meant luxury as a last-ish minute getaway for my wife, two children (8 and 6 respectively) and I. We stayed for a week in a golden oak cabin that I pre-selected at the time of booking (very highly recommend doing this)... More

Just returned from a mon-fri holiday at the cabins and all we can say is we had a ball. Cabins are very modern & clean with an added bonus of a hot tub. When we arrived the hot tub had a temperature issue but it was sorted and was offered the twilight walk (thursday night) for free. We took part... More

This being our second stay at strathyre I have nothing but praise regarding the whole experience. Firstly the staff at strathyre are a real asset they are very accommodating and helped make our stay.

This is a well run and organised holiday destination, a more natural alternative perhaps to Centre Parcs. Cheaper than CP too and more pleasant too in my opinion. Like CP it is family orientated but unlike CP it is also suitable for those without kids. The accommodation is in my experience better quality than CP. style is perhaps best described... More

We stayed here for a wedding and hadn't expected the level of comfort and care that was provided. We have two young daughters and they absolutely loved staying in the cabin. We attended the young explorers session with Jack Black which was good fun and informative. I would definitely go back!

Nice cabins and lovely location – we were there for a family celebration (Mum & Dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary) and booked 3 silver cabins. I have to admit that I expected the cabins to be spaced further apart and to actually be located in a wooded area. As it is I didn’t find that they provided much privacy when the... More

These log cabins are of a high standard. We booked in to the Golden Oak and it was well worth it. The added extras of towels, robes, slippers and stove were excellent. The hot tub was great and was nice to relax in the evening in it. The cabins are secluded and you still feel you have your privacy even... More
