“Fantastic Cottage”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We hired this lodge for a family break and found the facilities to be amazing. This property has absolutely everything you could need for a self catering break, and the view across Loch Leven is stunning. The cottage was cosy, stylish and spotlessly clean. It has a lovely conservatory to enjoy the sunny days as well as a log fire in the sitting room to keep you warm on colder nights. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms bright and airy. The owners were brilliant throughout the whole booking process and kept in touch regularly to ensure everything was okay. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and we will certainly be returning to enjoy a break in the future.

Doug, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Lodge! And thank you so much for giving us such a glowing review! I'm delighted to hear you had some lovely sunny days and could soak up the view, but were warm and cosy around the open fire at night too. We very much look forward to welcoming you back again! Best, Shona

“Beautiful Balgedie House and Lodge!”
Reviewed March 7, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had an absolutely incredible stay here, to celebrate Valentine'so Day. The house has recently been refurbished to an extremely high standard, but very much in keeping with the cosy settings.

From the accommodation to its stunning setting, we could not fault our stay and would love to stay again soon!

May thanks to Shona and her team!

“Lovely cottage with stunning views!”
Reviewed February 26, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Shona has done an amazing job of revitalising this lovely cottage. The place feels fresh and modern but still retains many of its original features, and the newly insulated sunroom is wonderfully cosy even in the coldest of months! We particularly enjoyed spending evenings in front of the outdoor woodburning chiminea - what a wonderful revelation! And the views - stunning!

As an added bonus, Shona invited us to look around the 'big hoose', which has just been renovated and will be promoted as high-end holiday accommodation very soon. High-end, indeed! Balgedie House is absolutely fantastic; I'm sure we'll be booking a stay!

Many thanks, Shona - we had a lovely time at the Gate Lodge and hope to see you again soon!

“Balgedie Lodge”
Reviewed February 15, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Had a relaxing and restful few days at this deceptively large lodge house overlooking stunning Loch Leven. Views to die for, ever changing and beautiful regardless of the weather. Lovely spacious, clean, cosy cottage with a cosy coal fire which brought back happy childhood memories. Stunning sun room looking over the loch and a covered seating area in the lovely garden, again with gorgeous views. Well equipped, comfy beds, close to numerous interesting places to visit. Great cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. Highly recommended.

“Lovely and convenient with an amazing view”
Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The Gatelodge was our home away from home for 2 weeks over the holidays and we couldn't have been more pleased. It was just the right size for our family with everything we could have wanted or needed. Shona provided the comforts of home, a nice welcome basket of goodies and treats and even a Christmas Tree and decorations to make us feel welcome and get us in the holiday spirit.
We had a wonderful and relaxed experience and look forward to staying again next visit!

“what a fantastic find”
Reviewed December 11, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Stunning location, lovely cottage and helpful, friendly owner Shona. Enclosed garden for the dogs (no worries about them escaping). Easy walk down to the loch, pub and Loch Levens Larder. We were treated to some beautiful sunsets during our stay. Really didn't want to leave and my husband said he quite happy live there. We will definitely be returning.

Sara, thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so thrilled you all enjoyed the Lodge and the area so much and I very much look forward to welcoming you back again. Since your stay, we've been doing quite a bit of work to the cottage - insulating the sunroom roof was this weekend and we're giving the whole place a paint in January - so I hope you will like all the upgrades on your return - as well as getting to enjoy more of those spectacular sunsets!
