Recently had a 2 night stay here with my wife and son. The pods are great,very comfortable and cosy, in a lovely setting. The owners were very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this place and will certainly return sometime. Maybe when the weathers warmer so we can appreciate the fire pit out the front of the pod
Had a weekend here last week. Really cosy "pod" with underfloor heating, wifi and hot showers. Excellent location 10 mins walk into the centre of Dufftown (where there are an excellent range of food and whisky options) , 30 mins drive to the Lecht (where we had snowboarding and skiing). Really friendly hosts, stunning views down the valley (there was even a pheasant walking around the front of the pod on the first morning). Lovely
We stayed in February 2018 for 2 nights. The pod had everything we needed for a family of four. My kids (age 8 & 11) loved it & it didn’t feel too cramped. Being Scotland we experienced all weather and the pod was very cosy. The owners have thought of everything, even forks to toast your marshmallows on the fire pit! Great fun .....
Would definitely recommend to others.
We booked a 2 night stay for the weekend for my partners birthday, with two kids and a dog we weren’t sure what to expect but we all had a fab time. Everything has been thought of to make the stay as nice and relaxed as possible and the location was perfect, we had a great view of Dufftown from the smugglers retreat pod! Brian the owner was really helpful, he showed us around the pod when we checked in and made sure we knew where everything was, he also offered to provide information on nearby places to go with the kids and where to eat. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a luxury ‘camping’ experience minus the hassle of tents! Much better option than a B&B and in a great location.
I returned home from a 2 night stay with my daugther and we loved it! All we wanted was to chill out over the mid term break. These pods are immaculate and it was like a home from home, everything you needed for a comfortable stay: from shampoo, soap, towels, tea, coffee, milk to toilet roll. The underfloor heating was great and we were never cold even though it was snowing and windy outside, there was also wi-fi too, so my daughter was never bored in the evenings.
Highly recommend and we will be back! Good Luck with everything and huge thanks again. x
