Picking a holiday is not easy normally we book an abroad holiday for around £3000+ most of the time. This time we decided to try something a bit cheaper as money was a little tight this year.
Looking around we decided to try a hot tub lodge for the kids of course… plenty of choice all over the country as there is lots of places around with a hot tub lodge some a bit more pricey than we wanted to spend! Then we came to a one in Corriefodly woodland leisure, price was very responsible as lodges can go for a lot more than £700 for the week especially in peak season.
This is the only lodge they hire on the camp and its an extremely small camp with very little on it maybe this why the price is so low.
We picked it because it had a good location to different parts of Scotland making it ideal for what we wanted which was to travel and do some nature walks.
It had a small pub only open on certain days and times, great for dog walkers with a small trail to walk on near the river and a woodland walk with a small park for younger kids.
We have two children and wanted to experience nature rather than spending money at Havens.
Here is some photos of the lodge we stayed in underneath.
We enjoyed our stay here although a few annoying things like wasps, flys and midges! My girlfriend hates them they seemed to be on the attack most of the day and only stopped during the night or when it rained also there is a farmers building to the right and side of the lodge and a few funny smells now and again not really sure if that was from this or the river itself.
All in all for the price it was perfect for a family of four in peak season, waking up to the birds, squirrels, rabbits and pheasant roaming around.
