This was a beautiful place to stay while I was helping my mother who lives nearby to pack to move. The sound and views of the rushing stream, being in the forest, and a gorgeous walk every morning before leaving helped reduce the stress of the move. The owner was very helpful when needed and took care of whatever I needed, and the place was spotlessly clean!
What a lovely place to stay , we were a party of 10 and 2 dogsl, included 2 little ones (aged 4 months old and 2 years) . This place wraps it's arms around you and makes you feel you are a million miles away from any hustle and bustle. We enjoyed a pre christmas family get together with A big christmas dinner and woodland walks. We really loved staying here and I have a feeling we will definitely be returning . The cabin was comfortable , roomy and had bags of character. Loved the Eco element to the place and views to die for

Just returned from celebrating 3 family birthdays. Accommodation was perfect for our needs with 2 king size rooms, a twin and a single together with 2 bathrooms, 1 with bath and 1 with shower.
Large living room with wood burning fire opening onto a porch overlooking the Roeburn river. Separate dining room and a kitchen with lots of crockery and cooking pots too. The wine and biscuits on arrival was also a nice touch.
We particularly enjoyed Rod's informative walk on Saturday and enjoyed learning about the trees and the area in general. Every question was answered very fully!
We all agred we would definitely stay here again. Thank you Rod and Jane for an excellent weekend.
We were a group of 7 staying in the house (excluding the flat) with ages from 2 to 70 including one person with limited mobility. I agree 100% with the extensive comments posted 18 Feb 14. Only to add that for 2 days I felt no inclination to go anywhere other than to explore on foot the extensive valley of the Roeburn which is under the same ownership as the house. A mixture of mature woodland, rocky crags, lowland meadows and a rushing river which is packed with wildlife including deer, buzzards, dippers and herons). It is an idyllic world in which to lose yourself - both mentally and sometimes in reality.
We'd never stayed in this area before, and were surprised by its loveliness. This is a hidden gem in a beautiful, sheltered valley and we were lulled to sleep each night by the sound of the river running through the gorge below.
The single-floor arrangement made the accommodation suitable both for the toddler and the older guests, whereas the sheltered balcony overlloking the river was great for teenagers to curl up and hang out. The cabin had plenty enough living-space to allow everyone to spread out and not get on top of each other.
The well-insulated eco-design also meant that the house was constantly warm - I hate staying in chilly houses! The dining table comfortably sat all seven of us and the kitchen is full of big pans (although we didn't find a microwave, which would have been handy). I love eating as a big family and we've got hearty appetites, so this was great.
Great for nature-lovers, with private woodland to explore and bird-life in abundance. It's also a really attractive place in which to stay, with a lot of characterful wood features and fabrics. Don't expect a huge TV and comprehensive Sky package - it ain't that kind of place.
