You would be forgiven for thinking that the location of a lodge called The Wilds might be just that. Even though you will feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere, you are really convenient for both Aviemore (15 minutes away) and Kingussie (10 minutes away), perfect for a luxury Cairngorms self-catering holiday. Close by and ready to be explored is the Spey Distillery, Insh Marshes – a peaceful haven for wildlife, Ruthven Barracks and the outdoor playground of Loch Insh. There are a number of walking routes that can be accessed only metres away from the drive of the lodge.
Inside, the whole house has a warm and contemporary Alpine-feel, with wood and natural materials everywhere you look, such as the big stone fireplace in the living-dining room. It’s the perfect place to unwind and relax, with a cosy wood burning stove and comfy sofas to sink into. There’s a double height ceiling, french windows that look out the front of the house to the garden and a long dining table.
It leads into a fabulous kitchen where there is a large island and bar stools, as well as a gas range, plentiful amounts of fridge and freezer storage, dishwasher, double oven and lots of wine rack space. The kitchen leads through to a big sun lounge with plenty of seating – a great place to enjoy breakfast and plan your adventures for the day.
There are four bedrooms on the ground floor. A superking (which could also be converted to twins) with ensuite shower room. There is another superking/twin room, and then there is a quad room with custom-made full-size bunks, each of which has its own dressing table and storage area. Lastly there is a family room featuring a superking bed, with custom-made full size bunks around the corner; it also has its own ensuite shower room. There is a large luxury bathroom on the ground floor with freestanding bathtub and rain shower.
You have a really useful and spacious utility room, with washer, dryer, sink, hanging space, pulley and lots of space for storing and drying boots, coats and outdoor wear.
First Floor Description
Upstairs is a bedroom with kingsize bed, which also has an extra single bed in its own little alcove. It has its own very stylish ensuite shower room with a rain shower. Up a different staircase at the other end of the lodge, there’s a snug area with another TV and DVD (to supplement the TV and DVD in the main living room). This leads into an ensuite bedroom with superking/twin bed and shower room.
There are plenty of extra features to keep everyone happy, such as table tennis in the converted double garage – you’ll also find a lovely little bar in here. There’s a large kennel with a run, should your dog want a little space of their own – they are of course more than welcome in the house too!
