4 generations have just spent a fantastic weekend in arran lodge. The lodge is large and spacious spotlessly clean and on an amazing location. The views from the house terraces and garden are stunning. The house has someone for everyone toys for indoor and outdoors for the younger children pool table darts table tennis for the adults as well as a hot tub. Jennifer and nick answered any queries quickly and phoned on 1st night to check everything was ok...everything was 5 star thank you and hopefully we can visit again.
We stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday, with our 3 sons and partners and two baby grandsons. I cannot think of a better place to stay, each couple had their own bathroom, all immaculately clean, most opening onto the balcony or patio, huge dining room with everything you could need, big kitchen and we spent hours at night in the spacious sitting room playing games and chatting, plenty comfortable seats/sofas, with play area and gorgeous views over river.
Outdoor hot tub was wonderful, and games room (table tennis, pool, darts, table football) was well used over the weekend. BBQ and garden furniture was a bonus (we bought 2 big disposable BBQs and put them on the outdoor BBQ so just had to bin them after) and even when it rained a little, there is a covered outdoor area to sit in.
Well stocked with all sorts of baby and children's toys, along with outdoor games equipment for the grown ups, you couldn't be bored for a minute here. Great crazy golf course 5 mins walk from the cottage.
Although the front of the house is on the road into Callander, there is no traffic noise as the bedrooms are all at the back overlooking the garden, river and mountain. Easy walk into Callander (5 mins to Tescos). Good Chinese takeaway 5 minute walk away. Blair Drummond Safari Park 20min drive away, well worth a visit, and lovely walk to Bracklin Falls at other end of town.
The playroom off the kitchen was safe and well stocked with toys and books. Truly a wonderful house to be in,
Nick and Jen have truly thought of everything in this home from home and we can't wait to return with the family in the future.
We had the most amazing time in Jan and Nick lovely home the photos on the site don't do it justice, the house has absolutely everything you'll need, the view just so lovely we even had snow, Jan and Nick were on the end of the phone if you needed them and Nick called the house to check of we were ok and had everything we need. We were based in the town, we had a lovely walk into the shops and cafe, we will definitely be back thanks Nick and Jan
We stayed in the Arran Lodge for 2 nights as a surprise get away for my father in law's 60th. There were 6 adults, 2 children and an infant. The house was ideal: immaculately clean, lots of parking, well equipped kitchen, excellent games room/'man cave', very comfortable beds, great entertaining spaces with a cosy gas fire in the living room and a large dining table, an easy to use hot tub, a spectacular view and a perfect location being easy walking distance into the village. Jenifer and Nick were also a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend.
Spent a long weekend (3nights) at Arran Lodge and loved it. Plenty of space for my group of ten and very comfortable. A quick 5 min walk into the village centre. Would definitely come again. Thanks
