Idyllic Countryside Getaway

We booked this getaway as we needed a bit of rest and somewhere new to visit. After a 6.5hour drive from outside of Glasgow down to St Harmon, we were very happy to unpack and get cosy in Tulip. The cabin was lovely and clean, and was way more spacious than we had expected. This helped as one of our four legged babies is a big girl, and takes up quite the large amount of space! The garden was gated and super dog friendly, and was absolutely huge. Our two pups loved zooming about and rolling on the lawn. The hot tub was spacious and very welcomed at the end of each day, some at the start as well!
The site is quiet and we hardly heard ANY noise from the neighbouring holidaymakers throughout the whole week we were there. This was great as it meant we could enjoy our getaway in private. It was also great having support on the site from staff once day, and quick contact to them if required. There was no pressured conversation or interaction which was also nice. We were left to our holiday in peace. The actual site situation was brilliant as well, we were able to use it as a base then travel to the likes of Aberystwyth, The Mumbles & Hay on Wey.
We have already recommended the sites to family and friends, and are planning to come back down again in the future.

What an amazing place to relax and spend a few days away from everything. The hot tub is something else. I had the extra birthday treats as it was my partners 50th. The cup cakes looked and tasted delicious. The locals were friendly.
We went into town for lunch and a look around. A big plus for us was we could take the dog. The local pubs are dog friendly as well. With the sun shining we sat on the decking with a glass of wine until late then dipped into the hot tub. We stayed for 4 nights and had a blast.
Tulip, always been my favourite flower

Just home from a lovely stay at Tulip, stunning location with views of the sunrise over the hills with a brew is something else, add in a little dip in the fab hot tub, what is there not to love!
Tulip is ideal for that relaxing few days away from it all, it’s furnished to an excellent standard, beyond what I imagined for a cute little hut. Excellent location to get out and about for a lovely walk or some hiking.
We (me, my 10yr old son and dog) thoroughly loved our stay, already recommended to family and friends and we’ll definitely be back 🙂
Excellent weekend break

Our second visit to Tulip in a year, and as enjoyable as the first.
Everything was spotless and well stocked.
We had a lovely valentines meal from a local takeaway and spent the evening looking at the stars in the hot tub. Thankyou to Becky for another lovely stay.
Our friends have booked for the autumn on our recommendation.
