Last weekend my wife and me stayed in the Egret lodge. The directions given prior to are visit were excellent and enabled us to arrive with no navigational problems. On arrival we were met promptly and shown to our lodge where we were given an informative brief of our lodge which was useful. The lodge was beautiful inside. Immaculate and... More

Our first time at the tranquil otter and won't be our last. The lodges are great and really well equipped. The view from our lodge (gadwell) and the hot tub is beautiful. Although it's really remote there's plenty around which is easily accessible. The staff are helpful and available. There was loads of wood for the lob burner already in... More

We had a fabulous time at The Tranquil Otter despite the pouring rain. We visited at the beginning of December 2015 - it was the perfect Christmas getaway! There's a very cozy feel to the log cabins, with a log burner and gorgeous brick work walls... although we did have to get more kindling, due to having the fire going... More

The kitchen is modern and extremely well equipped and the bedrooms are spacious with very comfy beds!. The views over the lake from the hot tub are second to... More

We visited for new year staying in Dunnock with our two boys. Spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the our stay and had a relaxing break. Lovely location. Nick and Tazeem were very nice and helpful but not at all intrusive. A massive real Xmas tree was in the lodge when we arrived which was lovely and got a free hamper as... More

This is our 3rd time at Tranquil Otter and what a fantastic time of year to visit. As soon as we pulled up to the Fieldfare there was a gorgeous wreath and a real Christmas tree decorated in the Lodge. Such lovely touches. As always the lodges are beautiful. We have never stayed in the Fieldfare before but it is... More

What can we say. Had a lovely few days here last week in Gadwall. Will be back in the summer when it's a little bit warmer. Owners where lovely from the first meeting to the last goodbye. We both very much enjoyed our stay. Just have to save up to go back now.
