“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Took me until now but here it is.. amazing!!! booked after recommendation from my cousin for our annual ladies weekend away. stayed in Mountain Ash lodge 30th August for 3 nights. lodge and surrounding's were amazing hot tub simply divine!! Lodge is a fantastic size spotless and all the equipment you need for self catering is at hand. ( chuckle at this part we did!! 5 ladies who couldn't get grill on between us, called the number guy was out in less than 5 mins. but we figured it out just as he arrived. I have now just booked our next weekend away to another site in Perth in Keepers Lodge for 10 ladies. and we are excited, I'm secretly counting the sleeps even though its not until Sep 2014. would highly recommend a stay here. Thanks for having us :-)

I absolutely love this place. This was my second visit with my husband and daughter, the first time (last September) we stayed in kingfisher lodge and were very impressed. So we decided to visit again this September and stayed this time in the new Barn Lodge. Wondered if we would like it quite as much as Kingfisher, but if anything we liked it even more.
The lodge is very spacious, beautifully furnished and very, very comfortable, especially the lovely super kingsize bed. Hot tub right outside the patio doors was just perfect and completely private with views over the fields. Lovely kitchen, everything spotless and there was nothing which hadn't been thought of.
We explored more than last time and found loads of lovely walks, without having to leave the estate. Everything was perfect - we don't tend to visit places over and over, but will definitely be back!

We stayed at Balmeadowside lodges on a family trip, renting 2 lodges for 2 nights. ( Tawny and Barn lodges). The lodges are set in beautiful countryside with fantastic views. The lodges were beautiful, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Both lodges has a generous decking area outdoors with garden furniture and hot tubs - fantastic for star gazing on a clear night! The staff who we came into contact with were friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in getting feedback from us re our stay.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked a return visit!

Last minute booking to go back to the lodges for the second time, this time we were in the new Tawny lodge at the end of August. We had high expectations after our first visit which was faultless and Tawny lodge exceeded them. Tawny was very private and the views were amazing, it was the most relaxing 4 nights I have had in years. The lodge was spotless which is very difficult to find when looking for accommodation that allows dogs, we will definately return for a third visit, absolutely loved it. High praise for the team you all must work very hard to maintain this standard.

Room Tip: If you want complete privacy choose Tawny lodge

We have just returned today from a 4 night stay in the tawny lodge and cannot recommend it enough!! The lodge itself is spotless and attention to detail is very obvious with all of the little things such as tea and coffee and tin foil for guests and everything us a very high standard. The tawny lodge I would say is best for privacy as its decking a hot tub isn't overlooked at all. We will be returning later in the year!

I cannot say enough good things about these lodges! We booked it for our best friends hen weekend and they could not have been more perfect. Beautiful location, beautiful interior, beds were so comfortable, everything was spotless, we were given amazing privacy and the hot tub was pretty much fantastic. 10/10 :) I'd definitely recommend these lodges to everyone! Only not this time every year, cos were going back ;)

This was our third visit to Balmeadowside. This time we stayed in Skylark and twice previously in Kingfisher. Both lodges are fitted out to a high standard, but I did find the plumbing or boiler situated outside the main bedroom at Skylark very noisy through the night. I don't remember having this issue in Kingfisher. Also, I can't be sure the hot tub was actually cleaned every day. On previous visits we have always caught sight of/ heard the staff outside cleaning/ checking it, but not this time and it has to be said by the end of our week the water was a touch cloudy.
The hot tubs and views are still excellent though and to top it off we had the heatwave whilst we stayed.
The road is still a bit on the rough side going up to the 'birds' lodges. I noted that the two new owl lodges have better approaches and wonder why the same cant be done throughout.
There is still lots to do in the local area, if you feel inclined to be out and about. Our third visit and we haven't repeated days out!

Thanks for such a good review! You couldn't have picked a better time to visit, the heat wave was wonderful! One more on its way we hear!

The farm road to Balmeadowside has been gradually resurfaced and we're working on finishing off the last bit in time - just make sure you are using the entrance to Balmeadowside and not coming over the farm track from Parbroath Farm.

The hot tubs are checked first thing every morning as a priority for our Handyman - just let us know in future if you're not sure and we can have maintenance attend - happy to help!

Looking forward to having you all again - remember to bring the good weather next time too!
