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.
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 the 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!
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.
We’ve designed this system so you can easily “cast” your favourite shows from your mobile device.
- Turn on the projector using the remote control provided.
- Bring down the screen and close the curtains using the touchscreen opposite the bathroom.
- Make sure that you are connected to the “Woodlands Glencoe” Wi-Fi network.
- Open your favourite streaming app on your mobile device (Netflix, Disney, Amazon Prime etc.), play your show and click the cast button.
- Please make sure you are streaming to the correct lodge!
There is also a television in the bedroom to watch “normal” TV.
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).
You have total control over your environment!
Underfloor heating takes the chill off the floor, and the main heat source is the air conditioning unit in the living area which is controlled by the touchscreen opposite the bathroom.
If you need help please give us a call – our hearts desire is that you are truly comfortable at all times!
“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 via the touchscreen on the left opposite the bathroom. You can select which lights you would like so set – or turn them all on using the clever sliders on the screen. You may want to turn other lights down and play with the colour-changing LED lighting system! There are also switches which you can use if you prefer!
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 next to the bin area in the reception car park. 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, on the sofa up the blinds, in the hot tub, or on the ceiling?!
Spares are available under the bathroom sink.
The power button is the circle furthest to the right.
Press one of the two vertical circles to select the hob you want to control, and use the “up” and “down” arrows to adjust temperature (1 is low, 10 is high).
If the screen displays “lo” then the safety lock has been activated! Just tap the lock symbol and the lock will disappear.
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 in the cupboard above the towel radiator.
Fire: each lodge is equipped with a fire alarm as well as a fire extinguisher – you may wish to identify the location on arrival.
You’ll find glass, rubbish & recycling on the right hand side as you drive out towards the main entrance.
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.
