The Gate Lodge is in a peaceful spot at the entrance to our environmentally managed Perthshire estate - next to the best beaver wetlands in the UK. Wildlife is abundant and the Cateran Trail runs through. Alyth Bike Park and Alyth's 3 golf courses are all nearby. The cottage has just been completely refurbished and is great for couples or families. It has a double room and a comfortable bunk room and enclosed garden. It is heated by a wood burning stove/electricity system with back boiler.
Our Lodge has just been completely refurbished so is wonderfully clean and up to date whilst being decorated in a style that suits a gate house to an estate. It is ideal for relaxing after a day exploring, either in the garden or on the sofa by the wood burning stove.
Accès des voyageurs
You will be largely left to your own, having the whole Lodge to yourselves as a self-catering cottage. We live 5 minutes walk away, up the drive, where there is free wifi if you wish. You can explore the estate on your own, or ask to join a free guided beaver walk - at 9 pm in the summer months. We'll take you out if we can. Just ask when you arrive, or send a message beforehand.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are usually around on the estate and can give you lots of information about local walks, the ecology, places to visit and the best places to eat out.
If you want us we will be there, if you want peace and quiet we will not be seen.
For shopping, you can get most things in Alyth and almost everything in Blairgowrie.
Dogs are welcome for an extra £10 each, we also provide a dog towel and poo bags. The garden is enclosed so your dog can be outside in a secure environment. Dogs can be walked on the estate and surrounding areas and can be off-lead if they are well behaved. Please note that there are pheasants, deer and squirrels in the woods and livestock in the surrounding fields.
I have lived at Bamff for over 30 years, since coming here with my husband Paul who inherited the estate from a cousin in the 1980s. We are both environmentalists. We brought up our four children here and have run the estate with an emphasis on environmental management - organic sheep farming - native woodlands and more recently our beaver reintroduction project. I sometimes campaign on environmental issues and write a bit on environmental and other subjects. I enjoy long walks and good conversation and welcoming visitors to our lovely estate.
