A lack of wedding accommodation in the Carse of Gowrie has inspired a local couple to create a resort.
Rod and Adelle Sim have planning permission to erect lodges and a bistro at the 20-acre Silverwood development, outside Errol.
Currently, seven lodges are on-site with a further six due this month. The bistro will follow in the first quarter of next year.
Mr Sim said: “It’s taken four years for the groundworks to get the site ready and to get the lodges built.
“When I bought the land, our initial thought was to create a glamping site.
“It wasn’t until Adelle and I married at Errol Park we realised we had 200 guests and no accommodation. We went back to planning for lodges instead of glamping.
“We’ve had brides booking all 13 of the lodges for their weddings.
“It’s been high demand because we’ve four of the big wedding venues within five miles – Errol Park, The Byre at Inchyra, Guardswell Farm and Fingask Castle.”
To fund the next stage of the development, the couple are selling some of the lodges as a managed financial investment.
The couple are also considering investing in a marquee to be able to hold their own weddings.
