Previous guests at Leithen Lodge have left enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor. Here is a recent glowing report:
‘Perfect escape. A wonderful second visit to Leithen Lodge where we were welcomed and looked after by the lovely Jules. Our fantastic accommodation felt like a home from home with the WiFi blind spot just adding to that sense of being away from it all. Amazing treatments from Lauren who made us feel special and relaxed. Incredible weather and lots of walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside helped make this an escape to remember. We’ll be back soon!’
