“Pet-friendly retreat”
Reviewed May 20, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The Lodge is a beautiful and peaceful retreat. Very clean and inviting, it has everything to make your stay a home away from Home. Pet-friendly garden with great woodland walks for them. Beautiful beaches and Harbours. Dolphins swimming. Weather was great. Caroline (the owner) was very welcoming and friendly.
We will be going back at a future date.

“brilliant”
Reviewed April 16, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Lovely cottage with all equipment we needed, nice fireplace. The dog enjoyed herself on the back lawn and had nice long walks. Comfy beds, despite next to the road very quiet. We had a wonderful time.

“A perfect weekend retreat - for us and the dog”
Reviewed March 16, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The Lodge is a very comfortable and cosy cottage and is very well equipped with everything you need to relax - including a welcome basket of tasty locally sourced produce. Our dog loved being in the enclosed garden, safely fascinated by the cows across the road. There are lovely walks within the Duffus Estate itself ( don't miss St Peter's Kirk) and great beaches in easy reach by car. We visited Burghead and Roseisle - would highly recommend Roseisle for its mix of woodland and beach walks. The local shop in Duffus has a good selection of things and Elgin has 2 supermarkets. We enjoyed our visit so much we're already checking out when we might go back, for a week next time.
