‘If you ask people to arrive after 5pm in December in Scotland at least light the property so that you can see it. It is pitch dark. On entering the overriding smell was damp.. Once we had unpacked we went into the kitchen. The rear kitchen wall was wet and had obviously been wiped down to remove mold, there was a black patch at the bottom of the wall (I have pictures). Whilst the kitchen was well equipped it was totally under heated. It was impossible to use to eat as was so cold, such we ate in the lounge, with trays on our knees. As the use of candles was prohibited the only way of masking the smell of damp in the lounge was to use the woodburner. There was a dehumidifier running when we arrived and a note instructing us to leave it running on our departure. The Cottage was advertised as having a chargepoint for an EV. We even double checked with the agents. It is very misleading as the charge point noted is in the carpark of Brodie Castle-- A mile away, who in their right minds will leave their car a mile from home especially in the foul weather we had. The chargepoint was also supplied by Charge Place Scotland and you had to have their app.. After installing the app, calling CPS support line the charger ran at 0.5kw and would have taken 138 hours to charge the car... This was an absolute nightmare as we expected to charge at will at the cottage. Local infrastructure did not support charging as local CPS chargepoints did not support their app or by their webpage to pay.. The cost of the cottage was high and I do not think it should be used during winter. More galling was getting an email from the agents advising that the rates had been reduced, when we enquired they would not honour the reduction as we had already booked. The only plus was that we were able to take our hound.’

‘A great location and a very pretty house, but............... The house itself is very pretty and in a lovely location, with a great enclosed garden for dogs. There are plenty of shops (Tesco/Sainsbury/Lidl) and amenities within a 15 minute drive, so it is a good location for being both quiet and tranquil yet convenient. Walking from this location is really good, with woodlands and rivers. We did have a lovely holiday, it was just spoilt a little due to the below. Mid holiday service clean was supposed to happen on the middle Saturday. We stripped the beds and collected all of the towels together to make it easier for whoever was going to do this, and then went out for the day. Arrived home at 11.30pm, the service clean had not happened, we had to put all the bed linen back on late at night. Following morning, I left a message for the estate office, as per the instructions in the accommodation welcome book. We walked over to the castle, to which South Lodge belongs, but there was nobody about to ask, it is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. We did not hear from anyone for the the entire rest of the stay, I rang again several times and only got the answerphone. The accommodation welcome book, said that there was also spare bedding for all of the beds, so I tried to make the beds up again with the spare bedding, but there weren't enough pillow cases and no double duvet or sheet. In addition there were no spare towels. I had to wash and dry all of the bedding and towels myself, which is not easy considering there is no tumble dryer and very limited drying capacity on the outside line and the airer. It took a whole day of the holiday to do the washing and move everything around to try to get it dry, which is quite ridiculous considering how much we paid for the accommodation in the first place. I fully appreciate that in the current covid situation, things are difficult at times, I have no problem with changing the beds myself, but we should have been provided with clean bedding and towels half way through the holiday. 2. Quantity of plates/cups/glasses. I appreciate that the accommodation is for four people, but only providing 4 plates, 4 bowls (3 mugs & 2 cups and saucers) several sorts of glasses of which there were also only 4, is quite ridiculous. I understand that they may not wish to encourage people to entertain or have other people staying, but only having 4 of everything is just bonkers. 3. This property could definitely do with a washer/dryer, considering it is Scotland and it rains a lot. The house is old and clearly has some damp issues, it was fine in the summer but we still had to turn on the heating to get anything to dry. As the heating is primarily night storage heaters, you cannot put anything on them to dry either. The only viable radiator for drying anything was the towel radiator in the bathroom. The outdoor clothes lines, whilst situated at the back of the property to be aesthetically pleasing, remains in the shade all day even in August, so nothing really dries. 4. Broadband connection is intermittent and kept dropping out, despite standing next to the router.’

‘Having just returned from south lodge, I am extremely happy with this property. Everything Linda and Mark, The lovely hosts have done with this property is perfect. Linda has left nothing out. Very high spec! Even down to the linen and crockery. Very comfortable beds. Pillows, lovely quilts. Linda also leaves some bread, Milk, etc etc. And also a homemade Victoria sponge. Which was delicious. My favourite place was the conservortory to sit. Which is bigger than it appears. And my highlight was the Pekin/Bantam chickens that visit. They are adorable. All round this place is peaceful, Perfect, relaxing and I wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thank you Linda and Mark.. 5 All round!’

‘First the positives. The house is very nice to look at, parking for 3 cars at least. Kitchen is good, large dining room with log burner and comfy lounge and a conservatory. Would be good for kids as plenty of space and a nice big garden to play in. Upstairs the bedrooms were well furnished with nice beds. I’d go again if it was summer. So why only 3 stars? It was very very cold. When we arrived it was like stepping into a fridge. There was some electric heaters in each room but they were far too small to make much difference to the heat level. Add on the draughty windows and doors and it was very very cold. There was 2 log burners, we lit one straight away but over the first evening we quickly burnt through the paltry amount of (softwood so didn’t burn very hot) logs and had to go out and buy some more just to keep warm. We ended up having to spend a lot of money on logs which we had to drive to get just to make the place ok to sit in - it never got what we would call warm and we all had blankets and thermals on. We stayed in the dining room all the time as we couldn’t afford to keep both fires burning! There was a back boiler in the dining room log burner but it only heated a rad on the landing and the tiny towel rail in the bathroom (which again was very cold all the time). Why not have normal rads in all the rooms with a pump near the boiler to move the hot water around the house? We had all grown up in old houses and don’t have rooms hot at home but this was ridiculous. I understand old houses need to breathe so the draughts are needed but the house should have proper heating in it to compensate. It’s a real shame but unless this issue is sorted its too cold to stay in for several months of the year.’
