The last time I was in Dunkeld or Birnam – the two villages right next to Erigmore Leisure Park – was over 30 years ago, when I was in my early teens. The only thing I remember about Dunkeld from then is how picturesque it was. I certainly don’t remember a thriving food scene.

It’s still as picturesque now – this part of Perthshire will always be one of the most scenic regions of Britain, and the village’s whitewashed buildings are elegant enough to enhance their environment. What has changed, for the better, is the surprisingly wide – for such a small place – range of quality cafes, bakeries and restaurants.

 

On our first morning at Erigmore, we ambled along the Tay river path into Dunkeld: an enjoyable 20-minute stroll straight past the famous Birnam Oak and the equally impressive Birnam Sycamore. We wanted to check out the village and sort ourselves out some lunch, but we hadn’t given our plans much more thought than that.

 

Birnam Oak

At about eleven o’clock, there was already a queue outside the stylish-looking Aran Bakery. And then we spotted, slightly further up the main drag, on the other side, Nova Botanics, a combined café and florist. We had happy memories of another florist-come-café from a holiday to Lisbon, but we – unfairly, as it soon turned out – weren’t anticipating such on-trend sophistication in sleepy Perthshire.

 

Aran Bakery

The interior was Scandi stylish, while the coffee, the tea, our daughter’s hot chocolate, the pastries and the Portuguese custard tarts were excellent. Our dog was made very welcome – a recurrent theme of the weekend. And it turned out that the Portuguese connections were no coincidence, as they continue into Nova’s creative director’s cultural heritage.

The sandwiches on the bar looked amazing. I – only half-jokingly – suggested staying after our coffee and cake and going straight into lunch. But we resisted that particular temptation.

After checking out the flowers and gift shop area, we had an enjoyable stroll around the town – past other tempting-looking establishments, like the Scottish Deli, and the Clootie Dumpling, which my mother speaks very highly of – and then grabbed takeaway lunch from Aran Bakery. It was clear why those queues had been there earlier. We had delicious sausage rolls and also a tenderstem broccoli, feta and harissa sandwich on sourdough, which was as tasty as it is unconventional-sounding.

 

Food in Dunkeld and Birnam

In the evening, our whole family group – seven of us; eight including the dog – went to Z’s Bistro, at the Atholl Arms hotel. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the interior was attractive and comfortable, our service was very good and the food – we each had different dishes, from the extensive menu – was all high quality. Such an extensive menu can sometimes be a bad omen, but that certainly wasn’t the case for us here.

I thoroughly enjoyed my tuna steak Niçoise salad – there were plenty of seafood options on the menu – and then my apple crumble. Susi’s venison sausages with puy lentils, broccoli and sliced potatoes was rich, gamey and delicious.

And then, on our final morning, something a bit different, less trendy than Nova and less fancy than Z’s, and extremely close to Erigmore: breakfast at Birnam Post Office. Or, to be more specific, Chattan Tea Room, in Birnam’s combined post office, shop and café. The café serves traditional Scottish cooked breakfasts, as well as lunches, cakes and, to take away, excellent Giacopazzi’s ice cream.

Back to breakfast though: our daughter couldn’t quite finish her black pudding and square sausage in a lovely soft breakfast roll; she had, after all, had chicken skewers, rice AND halloumi fries at Z’s the night before. The dog and I were quite happy to help with her leftovers. And we adults had full cooked breakfasts, which were delicious and all very reasonably priced.

It was the perfect way to round off our weekend, in a hidden gem that’s typical of this part of the country, which is full of quality but often quite modest about it.

To experience the delicious food in Dunkeld and Birnam, you can book the perfect base to explore at Erigmore Leisure Park.

The freedom to escape at a moment’s notice.

 

This year more than ever, Britons are choosing to holiday at home and rediscover everything that is great about the UK. Imagine if you could enjoy holidays with family and friends, whenever you choose, in your favourite spot of Scotland or North East England. That’s the beauty of holiday home ownership with Verdant Leisure! This year, we have seen a huge increase in the number of people joining Verdant Leisure as holiday home owners. What’s more, a number of these customers have had no experience of holiday parks in the past. So, let’s explore swapping overseas breaks for a UK holiday home from home.

Travel less, relax more

First up is the time spent travelling, which most of our customers say is very important to them. Typically, our customers live within a 90-minute driving distance of our parks. This means they can escape to their holiday home after work on a Friday, with no airport lounges, flights, or transfers to worry about. Our parks are ideally located within 90 minutes of major cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle making it easy to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. If you don’t have work commitments, you can choose to holiday at a moment’s notice when you own your own holiday home, and our customers love that flexibility.

Location, location, location

For us, this is a key factor when choosing the location for your holiday home. It’s important that you find a location that you and your family will love for years to come. That’s why we believe that anyone thinking of holiday home ownership at our parks would benefit from joining us on for a park tour. It can be difficult to choose the perfect holiday location without seeing your options first hand, so a park tour allows you to explore the park, spend time in the local area, enjoy the facilities, speak to existing holiday home owners, and meet our team. When you choose your perfect location, you have peace of mind that it will meet your expectations every time you visit.

So much beauty to explore

We have lost count of the times when our customers have said “It’s like a beach in the Caribbean” when talking about Pease Bay. The “We have the best of both worlds” is another common phrase amongst our existing holiday home owners and that’s exactly what our parks offer in terms of coast and countryside. Riverside is in the heart of Northumberland, on the edge of the national park – it truly is a walker’s paradise. Yet, just a short drive away is the stunning North East coastline with white sandy beaches such as Bamburgh. There is so much to see and do in the areas surrounding our parks, each time you visit can feel like a new holiday experience.

Your dream home from home*

When you own a caravan or lodge, you can make it into the perfect retreat so there are no unexpected surprises when you plan your holidays. Long gone are the days of cramped spaces with limited facilities. Today’s caravans and lodges offer modern spaces with home from home features such as double glazing, energy efficient heating systems, modern kitchens, and mod cons such as USB charging points as standard. Higher specification models provide walk in wardrobes, utility rooms, full size baths and washing machines. The UK’s leading manufacturers provide a range of models to suit every taste and budget. It’s then down to you to add your personal homely touches to create a place you’ll love to escape to.

A place for the whole family

Choosing a location that caters for the whole family can be a real challenge when planning your holidays. Grandparents may be seeking peace and relaxation, younger children want lots of action, and don’t forget the dog! When you own a holiday home, you can plan around the whole family, meaning more time to focus on creating memories together. Grandparents can relax on the decking area whilst children splash in the pool, couples can enjoy leisurely walks whilst teens make new friends – we’ve got you covered with park wide Wi-Fi too! Many of our existing customers are dog owners so your pooch is guaranteed a warm welcome when it visits our parks.

Exceptional value

Our parks’ season length ranges from 46 weeks to 52 weeks. You cannot use your holiday home as your main residence, but you do have freedom to enjoy endless holidays throughout the season. Weekends, main school holidays, mid-week working breaks, the choice is yours. 80% of our existing customers visit their holiday home every month** to get the most value from their purchase. We work with specialist finance providers that may be able to offer you a payment plan tailored to your needs; you can spread the cost of holiday home ownership.^ With annual site fees from just £2,650†, a holiday home that you, your family and your friends can enjoy throughout the year is a great alternative to overseas holidays.
