Beautiful, Charming and so hard to leave.

  • 5 of 5

Barry and Astrid were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Communication was prompt and excellent.

My family and I travelled from Australia to stay at Holly tree lodge and what can I say. This lodge felt so warm and homely ( even in winter ). Fully equipped with everything and the location was amazing. On the doorstep to the Cairngorms and so many locations no more than a 2 hour drive, we have made memories to cherish and can't wait to return.

A beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property over Christmas and have had the most wonderful holiday. The property was clean, tidy, well maintained and felt warm and cozy yet spacious. The lounge was beautiful and much more spacious than some of the photos show. The kitchen was superb and we fit a huge goose in the oven too! The sauna was an absolute bonus and a really relaxing addition. The property is located well for a number of attractions and in easy reach of Glenshee Ski Centre which attracted us for this holiday. The owners communicated exceptionally well with us and I would highly recommend this property to others. We will certainly look to spend another Christmas here. The Fenwick and Stuttard families.

Property has a great layout for a family gathering.

  • 3 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here together as a family but the heating and hot water system are insufficient to cope with 11 guests. The log burner was a godsend or we would have had a very chilly stay. Kitchen & cooking facilities great & loved the living area, being able to all eat together was essential to our break.

Garden lovely & swing a big hit with kids. Bedrooms & bedding could do with a revamp. Bare screws and string to hold back curtains a little disappointing.

Owner's Response: Hi Leanna, We apologize about the central heating after inspection it turned out the system was low of water and this was the reason it didn’t work accordingly to ours and your standards. We try to live up to a high standard of quality so we thank you for this review it gives us the chance to improve our service.

Excellent value.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property. Very spacious with plenty of room for the family to socialise together or find their own space. Very clean with all the mod cons required. Really good garden which allowed the children to play and the adults to chill. We were seven adults and three children under five. Recommend this property and the area.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved this lodge , perfect for a large family . My dogs had the best time in the massive garden. Everyone also enjoyed the swing tied to the tree at the bottom of the garden. Even when it rained we could still sit on the porch as it is partly sheltered, really couldn't fault this placed the place it is fully equipped even for a long break.The only down fall was having to go back home.

Car: recommended

The Holly Tree Lodge is located near the Glenshee Ski Centre and the Cairngorms National Park. The Blackwater River runs along the bottom of the garden and is ideal for fishing for trout or salmon. Guests are welcome to fish for trout, but salmon fishing license is required. There is a huge choice of golf courses near The Holly Tree Lodge.
