Description

Life may not be about how many breaths' you take, but about the moments that take your breath away, and this amazing holiday house is a breath-taking experience

On offer is a luxurious holiday house in an unusual and idiosyncratic style which makes a wonderful holiday destination near Aberfeldy in the heart of Scotland. Originally a doocot, steading and cattle court, this part gothic 19th century structure was converted in 2000 with further conversion to a luxury holiday house in 2017. Set beside some farm houses and in front of a working farm, it stands alone as one of the most unique holiday houses in Scotland. You and your guests will love this holiday house so much it may mean that you do less exploring!

The design of this special house is classed as U-shaped, but we saw it as bottle-shaped, and on entering through the high arched entrance and into the semi-circular space, the large space is apparent. This area houses the entrance hall, dining area, breakfast area and fully modernised kitchen. The mix of stone, iron-work and wooden beams gives huge character to the building. Beyond is a centrally positioned double-sided open fire with seating on each side, with a further spacious living space. One of the bedrooms is accessible at ground level, whilst the other four bedrooms have steps to get to the rooms. All have a TV in each room, en-suite bathrooms or shower rooms with under-floor heating. With biomass central heating, this will be a warm house whatever the weather, and is an ideal base for an intimate wedding, family holiday or weekend away, in a luxury setting.

    The spacious living space forms the core of the building with a double-sided open fire centrally featured. There are three distinct seating areas, with two of them either side of the open fire with comfortable seating around the fireplace.

    The main seating area houses a U-shaped sofa arrangement around a wide-screen TV with Sky connection and DVD player. A cinema screen is planned in front of the rear French windows, which opens out to an enclosed garden space, where there will be garden furniture available in the summer months.  At each side at the steps to bedrooms 1 and 2, and 4 and 5, there are seating alcoves, ideal for some quieter space.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The kitchen, dining and breakfasting area is formed in the semi-circular front section of this amazing building. In the dining section, there is a bespoke wooden table and comfortable chairs that can seat up to 12 people in style.

    Additionally there is a grand piano in the corner for those who wish to tinkle the ivories. On the other side is the ultra-modern kitchen (created in 2017) with plenty of work surface to create your culinary masterpieces. With two ovens, five hobs and a microwave, there is plenty of cooking capacity for 12 people. An upright fridge and freezer allows for plenty of storage.

    Furthermore the next door utility room houses two dishwashers. A breakfasting table forms part of the kitchen area and your group can dine here on a less formal basis. A washing machine and dryer are located in the utility room by the rear boot room.

It is hard to find a starting point... so let’s start with the moment we entered our amazing Christmas holiday accommodation.... It was dark outside already when we arrived after a long flight and drive to Aberfeldy ... the house looked beautiful from outside... lights were on and when we opened the door we were greeted by a beautiful large Christmas tree standing in this great hall. The space is truly incredible with a lovely fire place in the center ... a super large kitchen with seating area... a huge dining area with a grand piano - thanks Kate for setting up the dining table so beautifully for us - and some seating areas both sides around the fire place. There is also a huge couch corner for watching TV and an outdoor space with barbecue. Furthermore there are 5 bedrooms, all set up with a lot of attention to detail, warm and cozy... all with en-suite bathroom. And there is a large backroom with an additional toilet and washing machine and dryer. We felt like home instantly... Back to the kitchen.. we have stayed in many places around the world and none ever was so well equipped to properly cook or host a festive dinner ... there are 2 ovens, microwave, 2 dishwashers, a huge fridge and freezer, a small back kitchen... all necessary tools to cook proper dinners, a Nespresso machine, waffle maker , toaster etc... and not to talk about the incredible amount of tableware and glasses. We were 8 people and with our visitors even 12 and never ran out of dishes. We enjoyed a wonderful week in this wonderful house and can only recommend this 5* property. Thanks again to Kate ... best holiday home ever... we will be back.

Best holiday property ever, we will be back

No detail had been overlooked in this property, it was immaculate. The space was open-planned and wonderful for entertaining, with the central fireplace providing a nice place to congregate and play games. The kitchen was a delight to cook in, and large enough for everyone to participate. Simply perfect.

It really is a unique building, perfect for hosting large family get togethers. The owner will love to hear your feedback which we will pass on and it goes without saying you'd be most welcome back!

We had the most wonderful family reunion in Scotland. With half of our family arriving from the USA and with ages ranging from four to 92, the team at Scotts Castle Holidays helped us to find the perfect 'castle' in just the right location for our group. Very grateful for their knowledge, quick responses and assistance with our planning. We would definitely recommend and book through Scotts Castle Holidays again.

Family reunions are really special occasions and we love helping clients find just the right place to suit their group. When you're ready for your next one, we'll be very happy to help organise!

Great very interesting house, beautiful location. We had a few issues with the freezer and dryer. Also had a lot of flys. But overall we had a great time and the house suited us well. We did book an extra bed but it never appeared.

yes very professional and helpful
