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.
Ideal cottage, for relaxing and in a convenient location for both Edinburgh and excursions North. Privacy and comfort. Highly recommend.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
