Oh how we are waiting patiently to welcome guests back to Redlands Country Lodge! We await guidance from government and VisitScotland as to when we can open our doors again.
Our accommodation is now set up for self catering, with no communal internal areas so we are confident we can ensure social distancing is maintained at all times. We await guidance on additional cleaning rituals and best products to use and to provide to future guests.
At the moment, we are open only to keyworkers and will keep you all updated when we can open again.
We continue to support all of our local village small businesses by shopping and using takeaway services ourselves! We want them to remain in business for your return!
Take care and stay safe!
Kate & Alan
Our WeeBothy has it's own hot tub, set on a decked area, just to the side. And it's booked most weekends and midweek from about end of March! We are currently investigating new tubs for WeeOne and WeeTwo. Do you think we should???
Who's ready for a short break already?!
Don't leave it too late to find a reason to book in this year- we've already had bookings in this week for Easter 2020, Valentines and for June and July!
We do keep saying 'we must write a book' and then follow it up with 'no one would believe some of the stories'!
When we used to serve breakfast, we'd always ask how our guests had slept. Happily most would reply that they had slept soundly, cocooned in their little log cabin rooms, tucked away in the countryside. We'd also get theatrical yawns from those who never sleep well, those who normally sleep well but don't when they are away, those who didn't sleep because it was too quiet compared to the noisy city and those who had been up all night as teddy had been left at home! There's not much we could do other commiserate and then serve big cups of hot tea and a delicious breakfast to help those poor souls ease themselves into the day.
So, what does one say to the guest who complained, yes complained to us, that an owl kept them awake at night?
Quick as a flash, we replied ' We're so sorry about that - we forgot to switch him off before we went to bed.'
