Hiding amongst 100 acres of farmland on the edge of Gartmorn Dam – Scotland’s oldest reservoir. Dam View has magnificent views of the Dam to the front and the Ochil hills behind it.
We are situated on our small 100 acre family farm looking out over a nature reserve with miles of walking, bike riding and bird watching straight from your lodge.
The lodges are all kitted out for your arrival with fresh beds, towels and toiletries.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for your stay with us, with all your cooking and kitchen utensils and pots, we have two cool boxes for your use with more freezer packs available on request. There is a wonderful wood burning stove, much like an Aga, that heats the whole tent on those chillier days and evenings whilst also having an oven and hob too. There is a camping stove also available for the mornings where you would like a cup of tea or coffee without starting the fire. There is also a BBQ outside for you to use outside and a fire pit for toasting marshmallows on.
There will be enough wood for you at your lodge for you to use throughout your stay and charcoal may be purchased on site.
There is a roll top bath with shower attachment in the tent, you can even open the back of the tent to enjoy the view while having a bath.
There are towels provided for all our guests, along with locally made shampoo, body wash and hand soaps. The toilet is right outside your lodge for your privacy, it has a flushing toilet and small hand basin inside it.
We do not have power in the lodge, however the toilet uses solar lighting and there is a solar powered phone charger in the kitchen for your use. We provide solar powered lanterns and battery powered candles for around the lodge in the evening.
We can provide you with breakfast packs and BBQ packs if requested before your stay, the meat is all locally sourced and some from our own farm. We have our own pet chickens on site that are looked after by our children, they would be delighted to bring guests fresh eggs.
Our farm has chickens, ducks and turkeys, we hatch our own chicks all year around, but during the summer months our turkey chicks arrive which is a very exciting and busy time on the farm. If you would like to visit any of our chicks please ask when you are here if there are any to see at that time. In Spring time there might even be an opportunity to help to feed some pet lambs.
We do live in a beautiful peaceful setting, however if the wind is blowing the wrong way, then you might hear some road noise.
