We stayed in the pod for 2 nights during a visit to Winchester. The pod was very cosy and cute and had everything we needed for our stay and also nice touches such as a little bottle of wine! I would definitely recommend it.
The most wonderful idyllic escapism. On walking into the Armadilla it is truly a tardis – beautifully designed inside – warm, immaculate, with luxury linens and finishing touches. Rosemary was a lovely host and couldn’t have been more helpful. We are going back soon!!!!
Excellent place to stay. The pod had everything we needed. Staying in February yet still very warm inside. Hot tub was amazing and so was Laurence. Would go back tomorrow.
Our stay in the Armadilla was fantastic. It is like a Tardis, much bigger on the inside than you’d expect. With all the mod-cons and a real feeling of comfort. The location is remote and that’s why we chose it! It’s beautiful area and the setting for the armadilla provides a fantastic view across the loch for breakfast. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and were really accommodating to our every need. So all in all – a great stay!
This was a perfect weekend and break away from the reality of life! Fantastic views,hill walks,snow,local food and beer in a pub 15 min drive away and lovely owners who made us feel so welcome.The POD is so well designed with everything from a heated floor and a fantastic shower…We didn’t want to leave and I can’t say I was camping…. it was complete luxury! Hugely recommend this to anyone!
Our 2nd Visit, love the area, countryside and house with Armadilla. We will return. Many thanks.

It has everything you need for a few nights stay. It is inspirationally designed.
Not even spent our full night here yet but it is already shaping up to be an amazing one, you have an amazing set up here in a stunning location, am almost lost for words. Will definitely be returning very soon. Good luck with your venture
We had a wonderful experience here! We were warmly welcomed and shown to our wonderful pod, which is glamping to the max! The pod is cosy, draught free and modern. There is fantastic underfloor heating and a decent shower. It was pretty cool outside when we were there but you wouldn’t know inside the pod! The location is amazing. Nice and peaceful, but only 10min to Kenmore, which is also lovely. Our hosts were so friendly, we felt so welcomed by them and nothing was too much trouble. We’d love to come back!
We’ve had a really lovely week here in The Borders. House, location, eco-experience all excellent. Wildlife and lamb great! Excellent places to explore: abbeys, historical houses, walks & tearooms. Borders home baking is superb! I loved the Armadilla!

The cabin was so lovely and cosy. We had everything we needed for the weekend, and more. The view was gorgeous and the surrounds were so relaxing. Rosemary was very friendly, helpful and accommodating.
Thank you for a fantastic stay last night! Hot Tub was amazing and easy to use! Accommodation was very well laid out and made great use of the space. It looks small but was very spacious. We had our 8 week old with us and even with all his luggage we had plenty room to move around. We will definitely be back. 5* Lodges.
Jamie thought the Armadilla was awesome. We had an amazing short break here. A fabulous house and surrounding countryside. Glentress trails were a blast. Thanks for the banana cake and making our stay so special.

The Armadilla in Louise’s garden was absolutely gorgeous- we loved it and only wish we had more than a night to enjoy it. It’s perfectly designed with a place and purpose to everything, it really is a pleasure to see. We had a very comfortable nights sleep, made use of the DVD collection and were very grateful for the generous continental breakfast.

The pod was perfect for my silent retreat. It has everything you need for a few nights stay. It is inspirationally designed and Louise and Josh are great hosts. I loved it so much I am considering buying one myself and certainly I’d be back to visit Louise and Josh!
Thank you so much for our amazing little Armadillas! All of our guests have been delighted so far, and are very complimentary at how you’ve they managed to get so much into the space – and still be so comfortable. Our bookings are looking exciting for 2016!
Phil & Rosemary Simpson
A great stay in a great place. The cabins are amazing and have everything you could want, even a teapot! Rosemary was a great host with great communication and local tips. She even left some home made cake for our arrival! Couldn’t fault anything.
People are always amazed with the Armadilla! We’ve been fully booked since installing four earlier this year.

The pods are attracting so much interest already and everyone is ‘passing by’ for a look!
A wonderfully designed and well presented place to stay for a few days. The Armadilla was spotless and well stocked with breakfast things, tea and coffee, milk and bread and a nice bottle of wine and chocolates and pastries. Everything worked well with lovely shower, TV with DVDs to play, CD player and selection of CDs, all you need to do is sit down and enjoy! Would highly recommend.
The Armadilla is a great annex to our holiday cottage, The Green House, and is well used and enjoyed by many guests. We’ve had couples, grannies, teenagers and younger kids staying in it and they all love it.

We couldn’t recommend this place more – a beautiful setting, welcoming hosts and a great innovative take on “glamping”. We loved it and wished we could have spent longer there – two days wasn’t enough.
Wonderful relaxing stay at the Armadilla. Louise was helpful and always just a text away if I had any issues. The location was perfect for me- just out of town but very easy walk or bus journey in. The pod itself was modern, clean and very efficiently organised- everything I was after. I couldn’t have asked for more!
A very impressive house, A & L enjoyed the ‘Armadilla’. Extremely enjoyable, inside & out – the scenery, wildlife, everything. A big thank you – the scones and jam did not last long.

We have just spent 3 glorious days at the new “wee lodges” at Dragons Tooth. We brought the new year in the hot tub, while watching fireworks under the stars. How much more romantic could you possibly get? The lodges are surprisingly spacious, yet compact. Inside has everything you need. Microwave, toaster, kettle and Costa Tassimo. Double bed which if you prefer could be made up to 2 singles. There is a fully equipped wet room. No expense has been spared with these magical little lodges. Outside, your decking slightly over hangs the gurgling burn, while the hot tub sits there enticing you in. Its peaceful and quiet. Our host Laurence looked after us from start to finish and we really couldn’t recommend this wee gem of a place enough. There is so much to do and see, you will be spoiled for choice, or if like us, you want to escape and switch off? This is where you can do that!
The Armadilla is suiting my work really well, thank you.
The place was great! Lovely garden with amazing views over the loch. The pods are very well thought out, clean and comfortable. Ardtalnaig is nicely situated between Kenmore and Killin so ideal for dinner out and walks straight from the house. Would recommend to anyone looking for a really nice quiet few days away.
We had a fantastic two days in our high-tech pod! The views of snow capped mountains and the night sky were incredible. Thank you for a very comfortable stay-we absolutely loved it! 🙂
We instantly felt at home in the pod. Its clean and comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. Louise was a very welcoming host – thank you for the mini wine & chocolates! I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful location.
This weekend getaway exceeded our expectations by a mile. We didn’t expect the Armadilla to be so wonderfully equipped with DVD, coloured lighting, and heated floor. We absolutely loved our weekend there and we’ll be coming back! I must also mention the host, Rosemary, and how welcome we felt. She was kind enough to help us light the fire for the BBQ. Would most definitely recommend!
We had such a great time staying in the Armadilla! Louise is really sweet and we were met with smiles, happy giggles from children, fresh flowers, and a lovely assortment of snacks–as well as freshly squeezed orange juice for morning. Winchester is gorgeous, and it was very easy to get to the City Center from this quiet neighborhood retreat. I hope to return someday!
The Armadilla was exactly what I was after and the listing described it perfectly. It was spotless! The Armadilla felt very private.
We had an absolutely fantastic time in the Armadilla! A very cleverly designed annex with so much charm. The mood lighting, underfloor heating were fantastic luxury facilities we really appreciated! Definitely recommend a stay here!
Brilliant stay, great experience. We’ll be back again soon!
My boyfriend and I spent two days in the pod which had everything we needed. Rosemary had left us breakfast and cake which was very welcome! The pod was very comfortable and warm, we both slept very well and the views were amazing to wake up to. Location is prefect for getting away from it all with plenty of good places to visit and eat a short drive away. If the mood takes you, the pod even has disco lights, whats not to like!
Absolutely magical! Was looking for a weekend getaway just to be away from the noise and stress of the city, and this was just perfect. All the best parts of camping – the stars, the view, the privacy/seclusion – with all the luxury of heated floors, comfy beds, breakfast baskets and hot chocolate! The hosts were the lovliest people, who even picked us up from the closest town on short notice (there’s no public transport so be careful while booking if you’re not driving). Would definitely recommend and hope to go back again some day.
