The Gate Lodge is a 2 bedroom holiday cottage at the entrance to Bamff estate with an enclosed private garden. It was beautifully refurbished in 2016. The cottage sleeps 4 and is a comfortable and charming place to stay and ideal at any time of year. The cottage is available for short breaks – half weeks, and week-ends – even single nights. Please arrive after 4pm and leave by 10am. If you want to order in shopping or meals please ask advice.
There is one double room and one bunk room. The sitting room has wood burning central heating (with electrical back-up). It has a fully equipped kitchen, and a bathroom with a shower over bath. The furniture and fittings include pieces of antique and vintage character. Linen and towels are provided. All logs for the Gate Lodge are now also provided free of charge to encourage you to heat the cottage the green way!
There are many lovely walks in the area of all lengths, but you can start by walking up the drive to the castle, through natural woodland filled with small pools created by dam-building activities of the Bamff beavers. Some of the best beaver wetlands in the UK are within yards of the cottage, and many water loving species – such dippers, ducks, herons, frogs and otters may also be seen.
Equally you can head off to enjoy one of the many activities in the area, from golf to castle viewing, or just relax in the cottage or garden and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Note to dog owners:
Bamff estate is both a rewilding project and farm – in all areas there are roaming livestock and dogs must therefore be kept on leads at all times, except in any self contained garden belonging to the holiday accommodation.
