Photoshoot

One of Curlew Cottage's twinsEarlier this year we commissioned local company Head for the Bed to create two upholstered headboards for one of the twin bedrooms in Curlew Cottage. We loved their work so much we offered to host the photoshoot for their new website. It is a really important consideration for us to support local business and we were able to work with them in selecting the perfect fabric for the bedroom in terms of colour, design and finish and, of course, the fabric has to comply with fire retardant standards. The finished products are first class and have received many positive comments from our guests.

We are really pleased to see the recent launch of Head for the Bed's website and the various pictures taken in Curlew Cottage and The Old Dairy. Their online store with so many great choices is now live and, great news, they are now fully able to provide their upholstered headboards across the UK. Have a look at their website. There are so many wonderful fabrics to choose from as well as styles. We chose the Kintyre Clementine 100% wool in the Fruin style headboard for the twin bedroom in Curlew.

As we live on site we continuously review how the cottages are presented and really strive to make them superbly comfortable. When we go on holiday ourselves we love to stay in places that have that 'wow' as you walk in the door. The new headboards are a great asset to the room which is also looking good with fab new popcorn bubbly throws and new lighting. Perfect for Autumnal cosiness.

Fab Review from Dog Friendly Magazine

Scruffy Mongrel!We had the great pleasure to meet Tilly the Westie and her owners Richard & Angie Aspinall a few weeks ago. They stayed in Curlew Cottage and really enjoyed the 'wow' factor this cottage offers, they enjoyed their get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, were blown away by the style and size of the cottage and, very kindly, commented that 'it was like something from a glossy magazine on stylish living'.

Angie and Richard have written a wonderful article in the current issue of Dog Friendly magazine so, if you subscribe to and are lucky enough to see a copy of that, do enjoy the story of their stay.

We welcome up to two dogs in each cottage, there are some superb walks from the front door as well as the fun of exploring all that Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park has to offer. We certainly have enjoyed many 'dogs with well behaved owners' staying and enjoying their time here. As the ground floors of both cottages are slate and wood they are very easy to keep clean so dog owners can manage muddy paws and our subsequent guests know that they will arrive to thoroughly clean accommodation.

The 'scruffy mongrel' pictured is our special four legged friend, rehomed with us from the SSPCA, a great companion and perfect excuse for enjoying a walk down to the Loch or up The Dumpling.
