Family Trip to Cameron Lodges

It’s definitely a busy time of year over the festive period and although the kids are excited with their new presents I often find there’s a lag between Christmas and going back to school. It’s almost as if time has stopped and you don’t know who you are, where you are or what you’re meant to be doing with yourself. Add to that a couple of kids who like to annoy each other just when you want some peace and you have a recipe for disaster. Hence why I booked the family up for a few nights stay at the lovely Cameron Lodges on the bonny banks of Loch Lomond.

I had noticed a few bloggers got the opportunity to stay at one of the lovely lodges on the Cameron House Hotel estate so to give us a break and something to do I thought what better way to start the new year than with a little trip. It’s only about 2 hours from our house so not much of a car journey really. I had looked over the photos online, and of course from bloggers who had stayed, and the lodges looked amazing. I made sure to book a refurbished lodge quite close to the hotel as I like a bit of luxury and Logan hates walking too far.

The estate itself is quite big but the lodges aren’t too far from the hotel. We had one which was a 5 minute walk away and that was perfect. It was also a short walk to the Boat House restaurant however if it’s bad weather the concierge can pick you up and take you down in one of the hotel’s cars. I thought this was really handy and it saved us a walk one night when Harlow fell asleep on her Daddy in the hotel.

The lodge we had was semi-detached and was stunning. It had a massive open plan living, dining and kitchen area upstairs with a bathroom and downstairs was two lovely big bedrooms both with ensuites. The master bedrooms ensuite had a huge bath in it as well. We never used the bathrooms much though because they only had underfloor heating and this took a while to kick in so they were quite chilly. Also you have to pay for your own electricity which I wasn’t too keen on. In the end for the 3 nights we were there it cost £33 and that was me switching lights off and turning heating down etc when we weren’t using it.

Staying in the lodge meant we could use the hotels facilities and luckily for us they have a lovely children’s pool complete with slide and a small paddling pool for tots. There is also a bigger pool beside this one which is sometimes adults only, understandable because if I was there with just the other half I’d want some child free time too. The changing rooms for getting ready were massive, plenty of lockers, but freezing when you came out of the pool. Luckily you’re given massive complimentary fluffy white towels to use so I wrapped Harlow up and she literally didn’t move, wee soul.

The Boat House restaurant and the Great Socts Bar (within the hotel) were both really child friendly and provided highchairs on request. The food was delicious and I couldn’t fault it. My only niggle was the price but then what do you expect for 5 star luxury. All in all it was a brilliant little trip away and I’d love to go back just as a couple for a relaxing break.
