A charming and cosy cottage located on the edge of Comrie, a beautiful and vibrant village nestled between two of the most spectacular glens in rural Perthshire.
The cottage was originally part of the stable block and is full of character. From the decked area in the cottage garden, one has uninterrupted views to fields and the hills beyond and although there is a feeling of being miles from anywhere, it takes only a few minutes to walk to the centre of the village.
The cottage comprises of a cosy sitting/ dining room with a log burning stove. Off this space is a very compact modern kitchen. There is 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom (zip and link beds)...both of these are good sizes with plenty of clothes storage. There is also a small shower room

Zugang für Gäste
The approach to the cottage is along a private tree-lined drive leading to the courtyard of the main house where this lovely old stone building sits. The drive is shared only with us - the owners of the main house. The garden to the rear of the cottage is for your sole use...but you may also access the garden area to the west as a means of reaching the back gate of the property. This leads to a path to the river and other walks. There is adequate space beside the gable of the cottage for parking. The shared bins are at the main entrance gates at Camp Road.

We live across the courtyard from the cottage so are there to help should problems arise. We are generally out during the working day but if you have any questions during your stay and we are out, please feel free to put a note in our mailbox and if we can help, we will. There will be periods when we are away from home so don't rely on our presence.
