Take a drive along the most enchanting forest road, winding between towering pines and the beautiful Loch Garten, and you will arrive at Rymore Wood Lodge, set in its own private 20 acres of woodland, surrounded by the RSPB nature reserve, in the heart of the Abernethy Forest. This lodge is a nature lover's dream, with trees all around that bring birds, red squirrels, badgers, pine marten and deer to the garden, where you can sit and watch them from the warmth of the kitchen.
The lodge has been designed in a traditional and homely style, and has a wonderfully cosy and welcoming Alpine feel throughout. There is a huge farmhouse kitchen with a sweet and very helpful little woodburning stove where you can boil water for your breakfast or afternoon pot of tea. Your oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and Nespresso machine are here too, with the laundry machines and an extra fridge and freezer tucked away in the utility room.
Through from the kitchen is the large and comfortable sitting room with its big open fire and French windows onto the garden to the side. A perfect place to relax and unwind with family and friends, particularly when the fire crackles away in the autumn and winter months.
Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with kingsize bed, which looks out through the French windows onto the bird feeding area - the perfect location for morning coffee whilst the wildlife enjoy their breakfast! Next door is a family bath and shower room.
Upstairs is the master bedroom with its kingsize bed and an ensuite bathroom. You really do have a tub with a view here - you can relax in your bathtub whilst looking out over the forest! There are two large twin bedrooms upstairs too, both of which have windows looking out over the forest to three sides. There is a family shower room that these two rooms share between them.
All of the bedrooms have got large walk in cupboards; in fact throughout the house you will find all the storage you could possibly need for even the most comprehensively equipped bunch of adventurers! Even the large porch is a perfect size to house everyone's coats, boots and other outdoor clothing.
The big lawned garden is a fantastic space for kids to play - it's often used for croquet in the summer, and for rolling snowballs to make snowmen in the winter! Don't forget to look out for animal footprints in the fresh snow every morning - you may be surprised at who has come for a night-time visit - perhaps some reclusive pine martens or deer?
This is a lodge which truly reflects its surroundings, and in which you will instantly feel at home. Spacious, welcoming and well-equipped, it's the ideal base from which to explore our area. Make yourself comfortable in the forest!
