We hope that you are settling in well and enjoying your time with us! The short guide below will help you get the very most out of your lodge. If you have any other questions or if we can help in any way please do call us on 01855 413 006.
Reception is based in the Clubhouse building, and is open from 9am to 9pm. Outside of these times we have a super-hero ready to spring into action in case of emergency – simply call 01855 413 006.
A complimentary continental breakfast is included with your stay, baked fresh in our kitchen and delivered outside your lodge before 8:30am each morning.
Please leave the basket outside your lodge once finished and our team will collect.
If you need more milk, or in fact anything, please do just ask.
Easy to use, and just lovely to be in!
Please, oh please do take a shower before going in, and don’t put anything into the water except yourself. Adding soap etc. has horrible consequences.
Temperature: the hot-tubs are set to 37.5°C and idle away happily at this temperature 24/7 – clever technology means that there’s no need to “turn them off”. Please do replace the insulated cover when not in use to keep the heat in and conserve energy.
Jets: these are an important part of the filtration/cleaning process, so should be covered by water at all times. The jets come on occasionally as part of the routine filtering mechanism, so the intermittent sound of the motors is fine.
Health warnings: 20 mins is the recommended max time to spend in a Hot Tub. Hot Tubs should only be used by those who are medically ok to do so (not diabetic, pregnant etc.) and it is not recommended to drink alcohol while bubbling. This is of course your responsibility.
Leaving the tub: please stop the jet cycle and replace the insulated cover.
Cleaning: to keep your hot tub sparkling, out team visit a few times in the day to carry out checks & cleaning. We do aim to do this in the background without disturbing you, so with any luck you won’t see our hot-tub Ninjas!
From June through September we are plagued by these small biting bugs and sadly there’s sadly not much we can do about them!
Please make sure to keep doors and windows closed to stop them entering the lodge (they can be attracted to light).
In your lodge you will find a bottle of “Smidge” which can be sprayed onto your skin (nothing else please) to stop them biting. No need to do this before jumping in the hot tub though – the heat alone should keep the midges away and these kinds of things aren’t good for the hot tub filters.
Please leave the bottle in your lodge for our next guests when you depart (these products are available for sale in the Clubhouse).
We won’t! The only time we need to come near your lodge is to do a few quick checks on the hot tub.
If you do need total privacy, please let our reception team know – we will schedule a time to clean hot tubs when you are out on adventures.
You have total control over your environment! The controller is by the main light switches on the right as you enter the lodge. On top of this primary heating source, your lodge is also equipped with a towel radiator (on a timer) which can be used if you need a little more warmth.
If you need help please give us a call – our hearts desire is that you are truly comfortable at all times!
Your Wee Lodge needs lots of air to breathe! We recommend leaving the extractor fans on (particularly when you’re not in the lodge) to help fresh air circulate.
“Woodlands Glencoe” is what you’re looking for and no password is necessary (we like to keep things simple!)
For that great romantic mood, set the scene with lighting! Most controls are as you enter the lodge on the right hand side, except the flexible lights by the bed.
You may want to turn other lights down and play with the colour-changing LED lighting system (black controller with colour wheel, by the main light switches).
Great to set the mood, but candles do tend to burn the decking, or worse still the lovely surfaces in the lodge! If you use candles please rest them on top of something suitable.
Our tap water is some of the best quality and tastiest in the world! Please do enjoy.
To enjoy lovely coffee in your lodge, the first but often overlooked step is to make sure the machine is on, and plugged in at the wall!
Then fill the tank with water, pop the coffee capsule into the machine and push the “go” button. After approx. 30 seconds you should hear the machine hard at work, and not long after you will have some gorgeous coffee in your mug!
Let us know if you need any more capsules (decaf options are available too).
Log packs are available for £24.95 and are in the wooden cabinet in between lodges 7 & 8 (next to the bin area). Access code is 0918 and you can settle up with reception in the morning.
All timber comes from sustainably felled trees on the Woodlands Estate – and is dried out for a full two years before it makes its way to you!
Some lodges are set aside specially for guests with furry friends. Please make sure that our team know that there will be three of you staying tonight if they don’t already!
Indeed, dogs are very welcome on the estate (on a lead, of course) and there are brilliant walks all around. One thing we ask – please don’t let your dog up on those lovely Egyptian cotton sheets, up the blinds, in the hot tub, or on the ceiling?!
The bathroom fan offers continuous gentle ventilation, and “boosts” when you turn on the bathroom light. The fan above the window turns off by the main light switches as you enter the door. We suggest leaving both these on to let air circulate whenever you leave your lodge.
Simply press down to close, and down again to open.
Spares are available in the bottom cupboard, left-hand side as you enter the lodge.
Should you wish to adventure further afield and need a taxi please call Ali on 01855 811 136 or Kenny on 01855 811 764.
Your wee lodge has a rechargeable LED torch waiting for you. If you are going out in the evening, do take it with you. Coming back onto site in the dark, and up the walkway, does need care.
The emergency assembly point is outside the Clubhouse building. Please evacuate immediately and then call us on 01855 413 006.
Electrical: the electricity switches off at the master board in the cupboard on your left as you enter the lodge.
Fire: each lodge is equipped with a fire alarm as well as a fire extinguisher – you may wish to identify the location on arrival.
Flood: given our amazing location beside a river, we are obliged to provide an automatic flood alarm system. If you hear a loud siren in your lodge, please leave immediately to the emergency assembly point.
Glass, rubbish & recycling bins are located next to the car park.
Sadly all good things must come to an end – but we hope you will return!
Please hand your key in to reception by 10am so that our housekeeping team can sparkle.
Late check-out at 11am is sometimes possible, and can be purchased by calling reception.
We understand that accidents happen, but please do treat our lovely lodges like you would your home and let us know if anything is broken.
An additional charge will be made to your card to cover the cost of any reckless damage.
Please settle your account at the Clubhouse the afternoon before departure.
