perfect for a stay in this area , the gate lodge was a home from home and the view is superb.
Plenty to do in the area.

Just returned from a week at the Gate Lodge it was excellent clean well equipped beautiful location fantastic views over the loch, a lot bigger than we expected. We used the sun room a lot beautiful enclosed garden which made it very safe for the dog. There are some great walks around the loch we had a couple of nice meals at The Balgedie Toll Tavern and the Leven Larder. Look forward to returning .

“The best cottage we have ever stayed in.”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly want for a brilliant holiday. It is situated overlooking Loch Leven with a marvellous vista from the garden or the sun room. The beds are comfy, the cottage is spotlessly clean,the bedrooms are quiet at the back of the house even though a main road passes at the front. The garden is safe and secure, young children are safely enclosed.We were joined by our three grandchildren who live fairly near. They loved it plenty of room to play, loads of games books and DVDs. We had heat wave weather so the garden was our favourite place, the sun room was too hot!
The Balgedie Toll Tavern does good food it is within easy walking distance. Loch Levens Larder is a lovely place to eat for all the family.
Fiona allows well behaved dogs and ours loves it here. This was our second visit, sadly for only 4 nights but we will be back.

We stayed at the cottage for a week over the Christmas period & thoroughly enjoyed the break. It didn't matter that the weather outside was stormy, as we were nice & cosy & could still admire the beautiful scenery whilst sitting in the large conservatory.
The cottage has everything you would need, together with special little extras such as a library of books, music, films, local info & on our visit - a lovely decorated Christmas tree!
It is definitely one to visit. We hope to return one day. Many thanks to Fiona, the nice lady that manages the cottage.

“We just love this cottage”

When we came for the first time we wondered if the view of Loch Leven could possibly be as good as the photos implied – well, yes it can! We fell in love with the place. It is so cosy, and so comfy – not just the beds and the sofas, but the feel of the place. It’s well fitted out with everything you could want for a self-catering holiday. The covered patio is a great place for lunch on a sunny day. The sunroom is a wonderful place to relax, looking at the light changing on the loch. The lodge is situated within easy reach of great of eating places (Loch Leven’s Larder and the Balgedie Toll Tavern are particularly good) and the short walk to the local shop in Kinesswood to get a newspaper, admiring the view of the Loch as you go, is definitely recommended as a great start to the day. If you’re looking for a place just to use as a base and tour about the region, it’s great. If you’re looking for a place to relax and don’t want to go far during your stay, it’s great. We keep coming back … just been for our SEVENTH visit. And have booked again for next year. The guest book is full of delighted comments, some from people who, like us have also returned again and again.
