FABULOUS 🌲
Great place to stay. It has everything you need and is in a very peaceful and tranquil spot. 10 minutes walk to a pub/restaurant and about 25 minutes walk to get into Blairgowrie centre. Homemade biscuits and a jug of milk on arrival. Our host Mel was very helpful and friendly. I didnt want to come home 🙄

The woodpecker
This small getaway was excellent, pet friendly and hosts were fabulous and there when needed. We visited for our Anniversary and had a wonderful time in the quaint grounds. The cabin was perfect for a relaxing, peaceful couple of nights. The weather was definitely warm enough. We ventured further out to the bluebell woods. Where we managed to spot a deer! The dogs loved it too. Thank you so much.

Pondfauld holiday park (Woodpecker Lodge)
This is the place if you need that peace and quiet rest. The accommodation is absolutely spotless and has every home comfort you could ask for. Sited in a beautiful orchard and only just 1 mile from the small town which has all the shops you need. When you arrive you will get the warmest welcome from Mel and there will be coffee/tea and biscuits that are readily available in your lodge and a full list of activities and shops/eating places laid out for you on arrival. It also is very pet friendly as we have an Alaskan Malamute and a Syberian Husky and this was not a problem. There is Also a large dog park literally 200 yds from the site which for a small fee you can let your dogs run free. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who just wants a quiet scenic break.

Beautiful, peaceful, welcoming.
Nothing bad to say about this place, the cabin was clean, comfy, everything to make your stay perfect. Mel and family were so welcoming and helpful. Would certainly stay again and recommend it to everyone I know. Its a great base for going off each day and visiting the Highlands, or the coast depending on how much driving you wish to do. We had an amazing time there.
