“Quiet & peaceful lodge, lovely location, would love to stay again”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2014

I stayed here with my son and daughter in law. We had no trouble finding the property, even when returning in the dark. Carolyn & Koos explained how things worked, had the log fire lit and provided tea, coffee, milk, etc and fresh eggs straight from the chickens which were certainly free range - we watched them from our lodge. The logs for the fire were always at hand and the eggs so good we took some home. We did venture out to do some walking and some sightseeing but also enjoyed reading in the lounge in front of the log burner and making use of the wi-fi! There is a decking area but it was too early in the year to make full use of it but there is a table and chairs near the patio doors to take advantage of the views

“A Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2014

Loved it.

(Think the previous reviewer was describing somewhere else as the property is completely different from his description)

Greeted on arrival by the friendly owners,and given full introduction to the lodge.

Was nice to be given wifi password, so we could look up extra places to go online.

Fresh flowers on the table and basic provisions in the fridge.
Full basket of fire wood, kindling etc all ready to go,and the fire already lit on arrival.
Fire wood stack outside always kept full, so never cold!

Couldn't have asked for an easier start to a holiday.

Loved the peace and quiet. Not a sound to be heard at night.

Fantastic views across the valley.

Fresh eggs from the main house for meals so couldn't go hungry (Cheaper and easier than going to the supermarkets too).

Plenty of room in both the bedrooms and the kitchen/ living areas, and no shortage of pots and pans.

The lodge was spotless on arrival, not a thing out of place.

Carolyn and Koos were always available, but never had any issues, so just a friendly smile and a wave most days.

Would (and will be) happy to go again,and would definitely recommend to friends.

“A Palace in Pine - Our Best Lodge Holiday Yet”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

Just returned today from a fantastic stay at Bonnie View Lodge. The location is wonderful and this comfortable lodge is beautifully kept by Carolyn and Koos. Great combination of feeling the perfect peace of being miles away yet easy to pick up provisions within a few miles - a perfectly practical combination. Enjoyed our feathered neighbours and furry visitors. Cannot recommend highly enough and would love to come back and stay again.

“This lodge will exceed your expectations”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Bonnie View Lodge in Autumn 2013, and had a wonderful time. The setting is breathtaking - uninterrupted views over river and farmland. We received a warm welcome, and our hosts were helpful throughout our stay. A welcome pack was provided, including eggs from the hens who were our neighbours.
The house was of the highest quality - well furnished and equipped, and very warm - a most efficient wood-burning stove. We've got no reservation about the standards (apart from a not very strong shower), and we're definitely going to return.

Thank you very much for your positive review. Both Carolyn and I are pleased you enjoyed your stay in Bonnie View Lodge. As a lot of people in rural areas here we have a private water supply.To have enough pressure in all our properties has been a bit of a problem in the past. We have now installed a new borehole with a bigger pump and we hope this will have cured the problem. We hope you will return soon and try it out for yourself.

“Excellent Accomodation”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 for a stay in July 2013
1
person found this review helpful

This is a late review but through other means I was reminded of the wonderful week that we stayed here in July of last year. The lodge is spotless, set in a lovely location overlooking the valley towards the river, and inside we were more than surprised with the high spec of accomodation. Everthing was here that we needed , including lots of little extras left by Caroline, tea, milk, biscuits and even fresh flowers on the table! Plenty of room, books to read, satalite TV and films for an evening, and very comfy bed! We were lucky to have great weather .... and we just sat ourside, reading, drinking wine and admiring the view, and the peace and quiet ... with the odd drive out within the local area, lots of castles and coastlines to explore. We couldn't have asked for a better location , place to stay and the very lovely and kind hosts ... who looked after us so well ,,,, including a regular wee visitor in their pet dog! Fresh eggs every morning too! Would definately recommend .... and we DO hope to be back in the future.x
