Benview Lodge Five sits in a stunning location on the edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in South West Scotland. Located just half an hour from the cities of Glasgow and Stirling, the six timber lodges at Benview Holiday Lodges are easy to get to, yet the peaceful surroundings feel like a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. With gorgeous views of the hills, a hot tub, barbeque and outdoor furniture for alfesco dining as well as Sky TV and central heating throughout for cosy nights in, Benview Lodge Five provides the perfect blend of outdoor living with plenty of creature comforts. Whether you want to explore the great outdoors or simply relax amongst the beautiful scenery, it is easy to recharge your batteries in this magical spot. Benview Lodge Five sleeps six guests in three double bedrooms and there are five further self-catering lodges on site if you would like to invite your family and friends.
There is no shortage of outdoor activities in the area to enjoy. Cyclists and walkers will probably already be aware of the numerous opportunities that are available on the doorstep. Whether you prefer to lace up your walking boots and climb to the top of a challenging peak, or enjoy a gentle stroll through the woodlands, there is a walk for all occasions. Also close at hand are golf, pony trekking, sailing, canoeing, climbing and fishing, to name just a few. Within a few minute's drive are the small towns of Callander and Aberfoyle, which offer some excellent gift shops, Woollen Mills and outdoor shops for those in need of some retail therapy. They also offer a fine selection of pubs and restaurants, as do the local villages of Drymen, Gartmore and Buchlyvie.
Those who are looking for a home away from home will love the cosy feel of this timber lodge. Benview Lodge Five is very well-appointed with a private garden with furniture and a barbeque. There is also an onsite gift shop selling ladies clothing and gifts, a farm shop selling local produce and a restaurant/coffee shop selling full meals, snacks and plenty of delicious home baking. If you don't want to stray too far the owners can also arrange beauty therapy and pampering in your lodge.
