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. The cabins offer luxury and are really cosy. Even though it rained the full weekend it certainly did not put us off. Already planning to return... More

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

This was our third holiday with Forest Holidays, we have had 2 wonderful experiences at the Forest of Dean and Blackwood Forest. However this is a Forestry Commision Legacy site and not built to the others standards. We made the mistake of not pre booking our lodge so ended up in Golden Oak Cabin 8 bang opposite the car park... More

Just back from a fantastic week in the cabins. We recently adopted a dog, and we wanted somewhere quiet with lots of walks. This was ideal! Our cabin was fantastic, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The master bedroom was lovely, the bed was very comfortable and we had no problem getting a good sleep at night. The en suite...

My husband, 2 year old daughter and I all had a great time. We stayed in a Silver Birch Log Cabin for 4 nights. We hired bikes, cycled to Callander, Strathyre, etc., and just had fun throwing stones into the loch! The hot tub outside was brilliant for easing off our sore muscles at the end of each day! Will...

Enjoyed a very relaxing break here last week. The cabin was lovely especially the hot tub with fluffy robes and slippers! Everything was clean and recently refurbished. The cabins are on cycle route 7 so we hired bikes for the whole of our stay and explored the local area. It would be worth spending some time mapping out routes for... More
