A home for well-being, art and nature - nourishing mind, body and soil. We are a retreat space, a gathering place and a guest house for like minded folk. You can book a room or the whole house. Secluded, accessible, with stunning views in the heart of Scotland, we offer a tranquil home from which to explore... Come rest awhile.
Cherry Tree Lodge is secluded and yet easily accessible. When looking for a place to manifest our vision No. 1 on the wish list was to have a view that nourishes the soul - it really is stunning! We offer a tranquil, relaxing space for those exploring the area, business people who want a more personal experience than a hotel or those just wanting to stay awhile, a place where you can just "Be". We look forward to hosting you...
We have 5 bedrooms to choose from sleeping 10. There are three seating areas in the house and many options in the grounds. In spring 2014 we installed a 22m meditation labyrinth, you have use of the meditation room with a selection of guided cd's and since spring 2015 we have the art studio available for guest use. So whether you make use of the ecclectic dvd and book library, just "be" in the peace garden or take a walk around the nature trails we hope to make it a little easier for you to take time for yourself.

Rather than owners of the place we see ourselves as servants and stewards. We enjoy having dinner with our guests which we offer on some days. Our vegetarian food is often described as delicious and we include most dietary requirements - just ask. Instead of having tea/coffee facilities in your room you have full access to the refreshment bar in the kitchen where you can make your own teas, coffees or soft drinks and help yourself to home-baking or fresh fruit - it's a bit more social.
If you are looking to book the whole house you have probably gathered by now that we are not a "party house", more a home for a group retreat or a similar interest gathering linked to well-being, art and nature. Till and Mark will be in residence and can help you plan your meal requirements whether it is just breakfast you need or full board.
You can also pre-book a massage with Mark and more details can be found on (website hidden)
We prefer guests to arrive by 7pm and leave by 10am on day of departure. If this doesn't suit then let us know and we will see what we can do.
I will be your main contact and will be ensuring you have what you need during your stay. Up to 2005 I built my career in training and development for a high street bank. After receiving redundancy I re–trained as a holistic therapist and offer in house, massage, EFT, and reiki – you can find out more by visiting I have trained with Relate as a couple counsellor and am currently training as a Grof facilitator of Holotropic Breathwork. I had had the good fortune to run a spiritual retreat centre, living in community, in north east Scotland for a year where I gained considerable experience hosting guests who were either touring the area or who were enjoying a longer retreat stay. I have initiated a number of personal and spiritual development groups, am a brother of the Man Kind Project and now having moved to the Kingdom of Fife with my civil partner Till, I look forward to offering you the Cherry Tree Lodge experience.
