"Just back from an amazing hen weekend at the lodge.  Big thank you to Lisa for a superb stay.  Everything we could have asked for and more with the newly arrival of the hot tub.  The weather was superb but only down fall was the midges so if it lasts be prepared and mind the Jungle Formula as they really were out in force.  Would recommend this lovely lodge to anyone wishing a chilled out relaxing stay, we all loved it."

"We stayed at Lotus Lodge to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. What a fabulous place! The house itself was perfect, everything we needed and more.
Great attention to detail with the most comfortable beds. The hot tub was a real bonus and well used by all. Lisa and Rich were really helpful answering many email queries before we arrived and a complementary bottle of Prosecco to compensate for some building work going on to prepare a new patio area for the hot tub. The surrounding countryside was beautiful too.
A great recommendation for family gatherings and somewhere I would love to return to."

"We had a delightful stay in Lotus Lodge to celebrate my brother's 60th birthday over a long weekend. We were 11 adults, 1 eleven year old and the lovely 5 month old.
I do not know how Lisa booked the weather, but it was great for September and the BBQ was used. 
Will remain on our place to visit again."

"We had a fantastic time at Lotus Lodge last weekend with 10 adults and 6 kids (aged between 5 months and 5 years). The house was perfect for us with plenty of room for everyone and everything we could ever need provided in the house. The kitchen is exceptionally well stocked to cater for large numbers and children. 
We were lucky with the weather and were able to make use of the garden and barbecue. 
We arranged our food delivery with Sainsburys and private hired the FUN pool, (complete with a huge floating pirate ship) in Sanqhuar for an hour on Saturday afternoon which was fantastic and great value.
Thanks to Lisa and Rich for a great weekend. We will definitely be back next year."

"Our group (8 adults and 10 kids) staying on a snowy weekend in February. The house is fantastic for a big group - comfortable, well equipped, clean and loads of space. The kids loved the bunk beds and exploring the garden and the adults loved the cosy kitchen, comfy lounge and log burning stove. Lisa could not have been more helpful in organising our trip. We hope to stay again and would not hesitate in recommending the house."

"We stayed at Lotus Lodge for my brother in law's 40th birthday weekend which was absolutely amazing. The kids loved the bunk beds and we hired a hot tub which added to the fun. Lovely place and accommodated all 20 of us brilliantly.  We were very lucky with the weather so managed to enjoy the garden and bbq area too. Couldn't have asked for a better place and would love to go back. Thanks to Lisa for all your help."

"We are just back from a fantastic hen weekend at Lotus Lodge. I don't think I can put into words how great our stay was in Wanlockhead! Lotus Lodge is a beautiful old house, and we made full use of the facilities with 20 ladies staying - there was plenty of room for all of us. The house is well equipped and spotless and the village is pretty, secluded, and full of wildlife. The Wanlockhead Inn provided a great night out for us when we went for food and drinks - they were so welcoming and we especially enjoyed the live music. Our weekend away coincided with the British Gold Panning Championships and our bride was lucky enough to get a shot herself! How many girls can say they've done that on their hen weekend?! 
Thanks so much to Lisa for having us. We would love to come back to Lotus Lodge sometime soon!x"

"We came as a group of friends, who mostly met at Edinburgh uni 10years ago but are scattered far and wide now! Back for the third time, we had another wonderful stay. Such a cosy house, equipped with everything we needed for a very relaxing weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for the house owners, Lisa and Richie, and we loved every minute. I'm sure we'll be back again one day soon!!"

"Were staying at the lodge for a family gathering which was absolutely perfect.  Adults and little children enjoyed it equally.  Weather was wild but the cosy kitchen/living room area made us forget about that. Log burner was fab and on all weekend, so great not to worry about wood.  
Would definitely recommend staying here.  Nice feeling of remoteness but also knowing we were still on the mainland.  I'm sure it would be quite magical over the winter....assuming you had lots of stores in ;)  
Hopefully see you again."

"Had an absolutely brilliant long weekend at Lotus Lodge for my friend's hen weekend. The owners were fantastic in answering any questions before we arrived and even let us in early on our first day to set up for our hen's arrival which was very much appreciated! The house was great with a fully stocked kitchen, enough space for 16 of us and a fantastic garden which we managed to enjoy on the Friday night BBQ-ing in the rare Scottish sunshine! Thanks again for a great stay!"

"Wow what a fantastic house and location. I stayed here with 17 runners from Durham and Swansea and had the best weekend of my life. The communication was great, the meet and greet was great but most of all the house was fantastic. Clean and spacious with plenty of character. The location was breathtaking. Tough mudder 2016 we will be back and we will be staying here. Thanks so much Lisa"

"Just back from a stay at Lotus Lodge with a group of 20 hens and had a fantastic time. Owners could not have been any more accommodating by letting us in to look around the house before our stay and by letting us have a late check out. Local pub was also friendly and a had a good meal there on one of the nights. Were already thinking of a reason to come back!"

"14 of us spent a weekend at the lodge for my wife's birthday.The lodge was fully equipped with all the things that were necessary for everyone's requirements. Unfortunately we could not make full use of the garden due to the weather on the Sunday.We had a meal at the local pub which is only a stroll away at the end of the road,this was decent pub grub. For the hill walkers amongst us we were not disappointed with the surrounding scenery and a few of us braved the weather for a short walk. We would definitely recommend the lodge for any large parties looking for a self catering house the the area."

"We stayed as a mixed group over Halloween and loved the house. Would recommend to all. The house itself looked better than the pictures show and we would all go back in a minute.

The little pub just down the hill was great fun too and was good for a quick bite to eat.

Thank you for our stay."
