Handiscover Host of the week – Sophia & Roderick

Who are you?

My husband is a forestry consultant and maintains all the grounds around Pitlandie. Single handedly he landscaped the grounds around the lodge, our cottage, gardens and woodland area. I am a professional cook and cater and bake for private functions. By prior arrangement, I can supply freshly prepared meals using the finest seasonal produce, for our guests staying in the lodge.

Why should ’we’ stay at your place – Tell us about your home?

Nestled away in a charmingly secluded woodland setting, Fern Lodge provides luxury accommodation with wonderful views of rural Perthshire. It offers an excellent retreat for those seeking peace and tranquility that is only 15 minutes from a city and being located in central Scotland, its also a good base from which to explore the rest of the country.

The lodge is located half a mile of the public road and 300 yards from the nearest neighbour. Set in it’s own private garden and 6 acre woodland it is a sanctuary for wildlife and natural beauty.
