This was a really lovely lodge in a very pleasant private park. It was comfy and well equipped internally and had ample outside seating area plus an allocated parking space. It was also nicely located to explore The Cairngorms. We would definitely recommend it to others.
– Liz Wainright
We were so impressed with our week’s stay at Chestnut Lodge. The cabin is compact but beautifully presented, very clean and comfortable. It’s also very well-equipped with everything a family would need for their stay. We enjoyed eating out on the deck furniture in the evenings and even caught a glimpse of a red squirrel. The park feels very secure with the gate key-fob entry system, and the onsite restaurant, The Loft, was lovely for a special meal. The peaceful location is absolutely beautiful with just a short walk to get down to the pebble beach of the River Tilt. We made use of the nearby fish and chip/ pizza shop beside the green in the village and also had breakfast at the local watermill. The couple of local grocery shops are well-stocked and there is a supermarket in nearby Pitlochry. There are several walks nearby and we particularly enjoyed seeing the Bruar Falls, reached from a trail that starts at the House of Bruar, a short drive away. We had excellent communication with the professional and friendly owner.
– Helen Land
Steve was incredibly accommodating throughout our stay and was immensely helpful! The lodge was fantastic and cosy, also a stone throw away to some great hikes, would recommend.

A Wonderful Place
Chestnut Lodge is a wonderful place to go hiking or walking nearby (with short driving distances). It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and even offers a few small, unexpected extras. The check-in worked contactless and smoothly. If you have any questions or comments, the host replies quickly and easily. All in all an absolute recommendation!
– Anne and Matthias Mühlisch
Beautiful location, clear instructions for check in and check out. Cabin was nice – rooms were just a bit smaller than expected. Enjoyed our stay and met some friendly neighbors. Also, the nearby restaurant on the property, The Loft, was the BEST!!!

Better Than We Could Have Imagined
A lovely stay with great local attractions. The lodge was spotless and modern, in a lovely location within the caravan park. Walking distance to the local pub and had lots of things to do within a very short drive. Hosts were very kind and helpful, and kept us up to date with the situation in the area following Storm Arwen. Couldnt recommend any more – it was better than we could have imagined!
– Rich Healey
Location was Great
Check in and check out was easy. Access to cabin was easy too. Everything was there that we required for a few nights stay away. Location was great, and views lovely. Small shop round the corner to buy bits and pieces for the cabin. Would definitely come back.
– Roslyn Dickson
Perfect location to enjoy everything Blair Atholl has to offer! Steve’s cabin was one of the cosiest we’ve stayed in and would not hesitate staying again!
– Kyle McIntyre
What a fabulous place to get away for the weekend. Wish I could’ve stayed longer. From the start of the booking process to checking out – was faultless. The lodge is situated right near the river which was lovely to see. Everything is catered for within this gorgeous self catering lodge, it’s spotless & guidance on how to work things are easily to hand. Steve also very kindly supplied a travel cot & high chair for my grand daughter. The lodge itself is perfect for 4 people & the log fire was a delightful treat to coorie in as the weather wasn’t very kind to us. Lovely walk up to Blair Castle with fish n chips to take back & The Loft on site is a must to visit. Our meal was amazing! Oh There are games and dvds as well which was a Lovely touch. I will definitely be returning.
– Patricia Arshad
What a Find
Set in an amazing location just yards from the River Tilt and just a short drive into Pitlochry Town. Steve’s cabin is great. Very homely and well equipped. My wife, son and I found it the perfect setting for a short winter break, giving us the chance to explore Loch Ness, The Cairngorms, Avimore and we even found the James Bond Skyfall Road, in Glencoe. I’d thoroughly recommend this cabin and we’d love to come back again.
– Richard Blunt

Terrific Lodge in a Great Location
Located within the Moorings, at the River Tilt Park, Chestnut Lodge is a terrific base to explore Perthshire and beyond. Chestnut Lodge is very modern, has all the facilities required and is cleaned to a high standard. Hand sanitisers are located at the entrance to the Lodge and throughout the park. The on site restaurant “The Loft” is worth a visit.
– Tom Giblin
Had a Fantastic Weekend
Had a fantastic weekend here. A lovely chalet in a fab location. Very clean, comfortable and stylish accommodation. I would thoroughly recommend a visit. Nearby Golf club and atholl arms hotel both now opened up for outdoor drinks and food (and indoor food and non alcoholic drink) with marquees and patio heaters to see off the chilly temperatures! The loft restaurant at entrance to park is also open but didn’t get a chance to try this.

Lovely Homely Cabin
Lovely homely cabin. So clean as if everything was brand new. Steve was so considerate of our needs and really accommodating of COVID-19 safety measures. We also loved the shortbread you left us on arrival with welcome pack. We’ll definitely be back.
– Kathleen McKenna
Perfect Relaxing Retreat
We stayed here for 3 nights and wish it had been for longer! The lodge is perfect both in terms of amenities and location which is idyllic and exceeded our expectations. It was wonderful to wake up on a morning and sit in front of the wood burning stove with a cuppa watching all the birds and red squirrels outside. We went on lots of walks in the surrounding area including along the river and also up to the grounds of Blair Atholl Castle. We also ate at the Loft restaurant which we would thoroughly recommend. All in all this was a perfect break and we are so glad to have discovered this lodge. It was just what we needed after all the stresses of this year so far. We will definitely be back!
– Carole & Rob Kennedy
Stunning and snug lodge

– Sam McMillan

Cracking lodge in a perfect spot
The park is situated less than 15mins walk from Blair Athol train station and the lodge itself is 5mins from reception. It was fully kitted out with everything we could have possibly needed. Plenty sockets for my 2 boys’ tablets/switch/mobile chargers 🙂 and free wifi – which makes or breaks a holiday for an 8 and 10yr old!! The wood burning gas fire was such a treat and made it so cosy. It was spotless and really couldn’t fault anything. We would absolutely return.
– Kenneth McDade
Highly recommended for a quiet relaxing break away.
– Katie Bremner

Chestnut lodge has great amenities and some thoughtful extra touches such as a DVD player and a selection of DVDs. The check in and out process was easy enough thanks to the helpful emails to keep us informed of what we needed to do.

– Temeeka Linton
Terrific Lodge in a great location
We stayed in the Chestnut Lodge for 5 nights and it was excellent. Starting with basics, everything within the lodge was spotless and had obviously been fully cleaned, which was reassuring. The equipment within the lodge was very modern and to a high standard. This included free Wifi, a Sonos sound system, a decent collection of DVD’s and many board games. More natural entertainment was provided by the range of birds which visited the decking area along with the regular red squirrel. The lodge is located in a very quiet area, so is ideal if you are looking for a nice relaxing getaway.

Fantastic cabin and a beautiful site
A fantastic cabin and a beautiful site. All of the communication with Steve was excellent particularly around Covid guidelines which reassured us. The cabin itself was in a beautiful setting and was spotless. Lovely touches like the coffee machine and shortbread made us very welcome. We had lovely weather and were able to make use of the large decking area. Gorgeous walks were easily accessible and we particularly loved the Blair Castle grounds. We would highly recommended the takeaway in the park ‘Food to Go’. Had a lovely weekend and hope to be back soon.

My partner and I have been talking about getting a wee weekend away for a while and came across chestnut lodge. It’s the perfect little getaway. Warm little cabin with a full kitchen, gas fire, large TV, double bed and twin room. It’s in a beautiful location with the river tilt running along side. There is a wonderful restaurant called “The Loft” situated within the park grounds with a great selection of food and wines. Pitlochry centre is also a short drive from the lodge with plenty cafes and restaurants. I’m sure we will be back!
– Jake Rowland
