Luxury wee lodges in a very special setting. Why stay in a hotel bedroom, when you can stay in your very own small hotel!?! Beautiful cosy and romantic: wooden lodges set beside a river, among trees in parkland on a golf course. Each lodge has a private veranda reaching out over the water and most lodges have their own hot tub! Inside, these wee homes are packed with luxuries: en-suite facilities, small galley with microwave, etc, Nespresso coffee machine for a fantastic morning coffee, amazing Egyptian linens.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’ve been wanting to stay here for a while so we finally decided to stay for our honeymoon. We had a good time, the pods are very cute, clean and cosy. We were in pod 11 which was incredibly private and right beside the river. The hot tub was sunk into the deck and so at night time was so peaceful and very private which made it so relaxing. However; I do feel that for the price (£320) there was some issues: Firstly, it was a wet and windy night which can’t be helped but there’s not even a mat at the front door meaning that as you come in and out of the pod the floor was just soaked the whole time. We had to use a bathroom mat to stop us slipping. The floor in pod 11 had spongy bits and bowed in at places. There is absolutely no where to eat inside the pods, there’s no

Thank you for your feedback and will have a chat about some of these with the team. We don't mind anyone eating on the beds especial in the Riverbeds as some of these Riverbeds by the river do not have seating areas, and we don't charge for any stained bedding. Maybe next time you can stay in one of our newer riverbeds with inside seating area! Or upgrade to our Seabeds for more space and separate shower and toilet area. All the best, Lorna

Had a lovey time it’s so unique and peaceful .The lodge itself had everything the wee bag of sweets and cookies was a lovely touch to the room was fantastic and so well thought out the lights, the layout was just perfect and the hot tub was fantastic the whole place is just beautiful staff were so helpful and freindly. Everything was so well done there has been a lot of effort put into this and it shows only negative for me was I booked through a booking website and paid for late checkout it said 1pm and when we arrived it was told 11am check out which is their latest check out this would be the only thing I’d of classed as a negative and suggest a later time than 11am Overall we will be back and can’t wait as it’s a lovely place and so clean and tidy We have recommended

We desperately wanted to love this place but sadly we did not. There was good, there was bad, and there was ugly. The Instagram videos are amazing.....but it just didn't live up to it for us. The good: You can't beat the location of these lodges. If you are here after a rain, the water rushes down the creek and the sound is magic. The breakfasts are amazing. Great for what feels like a glamping experience. The lodge itself, in the right condition/time of year would be amazing. The mood lighting is perfect. The space is enough. The bad: Our hot tub wasn't fully functioning (jets turned off randomly and frequently). I made the front desk aware via their email automated system but nothing was done. The lodge gets very hot after a shower and use of the hair dryer. Our lodge

Hello - thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review and glad you lovely our location, breakfast and our wee Riverbeds. I am sorry to hear your lodge was to warm for you, we do however have air condition and a towel heater within the lodges, we do have a duty manager available at all times to call, maybe if you had emailed they would not have got this until the morning. Our team work hard to keep our social media posts up to date and show the lodges how they are to date, we started Woodlands in 2015 and our maintenance team works constantly to keep everything working and up to date! The dreaded midge - we do offer Smidge for all guests as well as a fire pit package that helps keep the midges away while in the hot tub. While staying on the west coast the best thing to do at night is leave all your lights off at night and then you can leave your door open and the midges will stay a way, nice wee tip for future! All the best, Lorna

I dream about coming back to the cozy little pod by the river sheltered by the mountains! Every detail of this stay was perfect and Katie in Guest Services went above and beyond making sure our stay was special. We were so lucky that Kingshouse Hotel was booked up the night my boyfriend and I came through hiking the West Highland Way. I started looking further afield in Glencoe and since we both loved hot tubs, this seemed like the perfect opportunity for our first try at tiny house/glamping. The location is spectacular - set a little back from Loch Leven, nestled in woodlands by the river. The hot tub is gorgeous - perfect privacy screened away and set into the deck for a luxury experience. Every little detail is thought out - from the Scottish tablet and homebaked cookies

Cabins are new, wee and gorgeous. However we were duped. We were bumped from a cabin in the forest along side the river (as per all the photos) to a cabin (#1-4) adjacent to the golf course, out in the open and next to a transmission line. The river cabins are all the same price (very expensive!) so one would think you get a forest/river outlook. Very misleading and disappointing - felt conned and ripped off! When we asked to he moved, we were told they were all sold out. We were offered an ‘offer’ for another date. However we live in Australia and unable to return! Not the point, Cabins #1-4 should be avoided, or offered at a lower price.

Hello, we are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Riverbeds 1-4 are our lovely new pods which have bigger beds, large TV and also have inside seating area which in Scotland is a must sometimes. Yes it is stepped back from the river but you can still sit and listen to the relaxing noise while sitting outside. We have plated local bushes and trees and over the years this will grow and make these more private just like lower riverbeds! But the view looking off into the Mountains makes for an even better night sky and amazing sunsets. All the best, Lorna

Another fabulous trip to Woodlands- our 3rd. We used to drive past this place and say oh who would want to go there !!! Well us… and would recommend to anyone. The lodges are so cosy and luxurious, the hot tubs are perfect and the views are to die for! The staff couldn’t be more welcoming and needless to say the treats in the lodge never last ! It truly is magical and would recommend a trip up the hill to the secret shrine- ask for directions! It’s also extremely dog friendly with a towel, treats and a bowl for your pup. Our beagle loves his visits and he likes to make his presence known when he arrives but this is never a problem for the lovely staff! ( of course we make sure he doesn’t disturb the peace but the walks in the area are so extensive that he’s well tired out!).

Just back from Staying at the riverbeds for 2 nights and it was amazing. The views are breathtaking even on the drive up to the estate and the riverbed itself was stunning/cosy, it is very peaceful and relaxing. We loved the hot tub and the fact it was a step in one is even better so much privacy, - have no complaints, staff and locals are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Took a nice walk around the area before enjoying some snacks on veranda next to the river. The hot tub was such a great way to relax during a busy trip. Enjoyed it for a one night stay but may be bit cramped for an extended period. Breakfast was great and check in/check out were easy.
