Booking Terms.

Who’s it for

The Duck’s Nest has been specially designed and set up for independent couples only.  We regret we cannot accept ‘booking out’ of multiple accommodations at The Lazy Duck, very sorry.

Kit list

You should bring in all your own food although you can ask us for home baked bread, fresh laid eggs as available and poly-tunnel salads and veg from mid-summer onwards. We suggest you bring easy-to-carry baggage, not wheelie cases, for the short path leading to the hut. It’s best to bring a good head-torch even if you find you don’t need it in mid-summer, as there’s no outside lighting, – and there’s water nearby.

What’s included

All our huts have a gas cooker with two burners, a grill and an oven. We also provide all linen, towels, and domestic essentials including cooking oil, tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper, candles and fire-lighting materials, logs for the wood-burning stove and outdoor chiminea. Fresh drinking water is provided in a glass brewing jar and in water carriers which can be refilled from our mains supply. The Duck’s Nest has electricity including a small fridge and open wifi access. Three, O2 and EE mobile networks are fairly good here, others might be less so.

Cleaning and smoking

We clean thoroughly between lets, but because time is limited, we ask you please to leave the hut as clean and tidy as possible, this is always greatly appreciated.  In the event of damage, or of your accommodation requiring much more than the usual time we allocate for cleaning following your visit, we have to reserve the right to make a surcharge to cover extra costs.

Be assured that Lazy Duck, including The Duck’s Nest, is a non-smoking environment, including out-of-doors and including e-cigarettes.

Fire Safety

Only those candles that we provide for your use may be lit in the hut and should remain in their allocated space please. This is an essential issue with regard to occupancy of the hut. Please also help us protect the forest & leave BBQ kits safely at home. We provide a wood burning chimenea suitable for minimalist outside cooking when weather conditions allow. In dry windy weather there can be a serious fire risk in any forest environment so please be prepared for advice on the use of the outside fire at any time of the year.

Dogs

Regrettably visiting dog/s are not possible in the hut on account of the sensitive wildlife in the vicinity. However we can personally recommend a small local kennels, Hilltop Kennels in Dulnain Bridge, offering first class accommodation and individual care at a very reasonable price to enable your pet to get the benefit of the great walks here. 01479 851330

Hot Tub & Sauna

Lazy Duck’s wood fired hot tub can be booked in advance via email or calling us by 10am on the same day on 0131 618 6198. For a one hour private session (between 1600 and 2000 each day) it is £10 per person, or £5 for children under the age of 10. Very sorry, we cannot offer the hot tub on New Year’s Eve, nor on Christmas Day.

If more than 4 of you are going in the tub, the price reduces to £7.50 per person. The hot tub has a maximum capacity of 6 people, so if all 8 of you would like to jump in we recommend booking a two hour slot and rotating people in the tub.

For the 2-person infra-red sauna we need to have notice 90mins in advance and a minimum charge of £7.50 applies. A standard 40 minute private session with music (your choice) for 2 people costs £10, normally available on any day of the year.

Aromatherapy Essential Oils Massage

Relax in our Wellbeing Studio with a luxury Swedish massage designed to relieve muscular tensions and stimulate the nervous system. £45 for a a 60 min full body massage or £33 for a 30 min back, neck & shoulder.

Our therapist Nicola uses 100% natural pure essential oils that are organic, cruelty free and vegan from Tisserand Aromatherapy and Neal’s Yard Remedies.
