We stayed here for the Easter weekend, as we have done for the previous 3 years. It's the sort of place that suits us, quiet, scenic and comfortable. We were in cabin 35, which had a hot tub (not that we used it) and a log burner. Like others have commented, during booking, you are charged for specifying which cabin... More

Just back from a long weekend break. This place is much better than I imagined. We stayed in Cabin 24 which is classed as a standard cabin – I have no idea why because it was brilliant. Very clean, spacious and the view was amazing. The accommodation has everything you would need with the exception of a hairdryer and taking... More

We had a lovely week at Strathyre. We stayed in silver birch 3 which was lovely with the forest behind us and a gorgeous mountain views in front ( the kids loved the hot tub). The staff were fantastic! My 5 year old son loved Ranger Jack and his stories! We'd definitely recommend the twilight walk, the kids loved being... More

Finally visited this park after looking at it several times - it did not disappoint! The lodge was fantastic (only slight niggle was the tiny settees), however this did not detract from our enjoyment, all the fixtures and fittings were to a high standard and the lodge was very clean. We loved the hot tub which was checked on a... More

Just returned home following a mid week break (6 to 10 April) and would sum up our break as relaxing and peaceful. The location is great and despite the site being busy was always quiet. The cabin a "silver birch" was great and fitted out well with a great standard plus very clean. The hot tub was perfect for relaxing... More

We really like this location, and visit an average of twice a year. We couldn't fault the location, friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of accommodation and the site, and also the range of activities (unpaid in the area, and paid). We would class these cabins amongst the best accommodation in this area of the Trossachs. However, there are some things... More

I have stayed here a number of times and this visit was as perfect as ever. The day after arriving the snow fell and we were snowed in for two days. The Forest holidays team kept updating the road situation was the TV system and made excellent efforts to clear the snow on site The staff are very friendly and... More

We stayed here for a pre-Christmas break in December 2013. We stayed in a 2 bed Silver Birch cabin as it was the best that was available last minute. We had a few niggles with the interior of the cabin including the fact that the extractor above the cooker didn't work, the upstairs door didn't stay closed and the shower... More

Just back from a mon-friday stay here. Staff are lovely as is the peroni in the retreat!! The cabin is modern, spotless and spacious. We were in a silver birch cabin.

Me and my boyfriend went on a 4 night trip and the cabin was very comfortable. The hot tub outside was brilliant! We were in cabin 15 (silver brich) which looked into the main road through the site which lacked a little bit of privacy with people walking past etc but very minor!
