“A home from home in a beautiful part of the country”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in woodpecker lodge with our year old border collie. Mel and Keith were super hosts, very understanding and accommodating when we requested to stay an extra night. The setting was very peaceful, a place where we could relax and unwind. Woodpecker lodge was perfect in every way, had everything we could have asked for - a well equipped kitchen, and a lovely little electric fire that warmed the place up nicely and still looked like a 'real' fire! The local pub, the old cross inn, was recommended and served delicious food in a very friendly atmosphere. We would definitely like to stay here again when we are next in Scotland.

“Wonderful Woodpecker Lodge”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful recent stay in Woodpecker Lodge. We were in the area for a wedding and the lodge ticked every box we needed for our accomodation. It was warm, cosy, clean and comfortable and had plenty of garden space for our two children to run around. We had everything we needed (and more in the shape of fresh eggs from the resident chickens, together with milk and tea thoughtfully supplied by Mel and Keith the owners). The kitchen area was well stocked, the shower was good and hot and the beds (one a put you up in the living area) were extremely comfortable.
As well as being comfortable and super value for money, Mel and Keith were kind and helpful; giving us a lift into town in our wedding gear and dropping us at the bus station with our luggage to start our journey home.
We liked Pondfauld and Blairgowrie so much that we intend to take a longer holiday there next year, hopefully staying in the three bed chalet which we nosed around and were very impressed by, with its huge open plan living area and wrap around verandah.
We wholeheartedly recommend Pondfauld and the Woodpecker Lodge - it's a fab place for families, and right on the doorstep of stunning scenery. And the big plus is that it's just a 20 minute stroll into town.
Big thanks to Mel and Keith for a great stay and hello to Bruce the dog and all the chickens from Gracie and Madeleine.

“slighlty tired”
Reviewed 25 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Woodpecker cottage is set in a lovlely location. We found the lodge to be very cosy but a bit tired in some areas . Certain parts of the lodge could certainly have been done with a clean. The couch and bed are not very comfortable.

We were sorry to read that in some areas Pondfauld Holidays fell short of your expectations, whilst we are a small company we endeavor to provide the best service we can and we welcome your constructive criticisms. We have taken immediate action where necessary to rectify these points, the issue of the bed has been resolved with a new mattress , the area behind the Futon was indeed dusty and we have checked all other sofas on site and rectified this problem where necessary. we would point out that one of our main areas of concern is cleanliness and to date have always had very good feedback from customers over the 10 years we have owned this site, and it has distressed us that you have found issue, with regard to the comfort of the Futon , by its nature it doubles as a temporary bed and is not as comfortable as other sofas on the premises. your point regarding slightly tired, can I first thank you for your positive feedback with cosy and lovely location, as a company we are constantly updating our premises and will be embarking on a new 4 star lodge, however the pricing is reflected in the varying standards of accommodation.
we are always available during your stay to address any concerns you may have.
Thank you for your constructive comment.

Woodpecker Lodge was just lovely. Everything you could need was there. In Feb/March the central heating made it really cosy. There was milk and fresh eggs from the chickens there on our arrival which was a nice touch. Mel and hubby lovely. Also price was great. Superb!
