Pine Marten is a Scandinavian style 3 bedroom lodge that sits directly on the River Tilt and offers spectacular views and genuine home quality and comfort. .
We purchased the lodge as our family holiday home in 2013 and fully refurbished, decorated and furnished the lodge to very high standards including installing a new fully fitted kitchen and gas central heating throughout the lodge.
The lodge comprises an open space living room and kitchen, an en-suite master bedroom, a twin bedroom, bunk bedroom (beds are slightly smaller than full-size and are more suitable for children and teenagers) and main bathroom with shower.
The living room has a 4 seater sofa, 2 seater love seat, TV, DVD, Sky (Freeview channels), and Bose music player. The main feature of the living room is the traditional gas fire which sits directly in front of the large delta window. The kitchen, which also has an extendable dining table and 4 chairs has an integrated fridge, freezer and dish washer plus microwave and Tassimo coffee maker. The master and twin bedrooms have built in wardrobes and the master bedroom has a bay window with dressing table.
Pine Marten has a substantial private balcony that enjoys all day sun and includes a dining table and chairs and relaxed seating area with patio heater and BBQ.
The main feature of the lodge is the large delta window with unparalleled views down the river. With full gas central heating, Sky TV and Wifi, it is the perfect all year round holiday location.
Pine Marten is set within the grounds of The River Tilt Park, a 5 star awarded holiday park. The park includes a swimming pool (17mx11m), toddlers paddling pool, jaccuzi, sauna, steam room, new gym and hair salon. Pine Marten is around a 5 minute walk from Blair Atholl train station which heads south to Perth and north to Aviemore and Inverness.
