Cherry Tree Lodge is readily accessible from the central Scotland motorway network whilst retaining a surprisingly remote feel. Accessed via a farm track and set within its own paddocks, it is quiet and private, with practically no overlooking.
On arrival I was met warmly by Mark who took my bags and showed me to my room. I was given a cup of tea and home baking (to which I was given 'free' access during my stay!) and we had a good natter to kick-off my visit. There was access at all times to a lounge with log-burning fire, to a terrace with relaxing outlook over the well-maintained garden, and also to a cosy sun room with heart-lifting views over the Ochil hills.
I was struck by how immaculate and fresh everything was, from the bed linen to the bathroom and general decor.
Breakfast was filling (no lunch required!) and I was delighted to join Mark and Till for a delicious evening meal on both of the nights I stayed. I was impressed by their endeavours to use local, organic, environmentally-friendly and fairly-sourced ingredients. I discovered that the approach to food betrays a wider, holistic concern with people and planet which extends to their guests (e.g. complimentary therapies are available) and to wider communities through their plans for the lodge and its grounds.
Mark and Till were at all times caring and attentive but never overbearing. This guesthouse is something of a destination in itself and it is for that reason that I've used the term 'retreat' above.
