Description

This is just a great country house for you and your friends to have a comfortable relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of the Scottish countryside.

Perfectly placed in picturesque Perthshire is this Victorian country house, set within its own secluded grounds, yet within walking distance from the village of Kirkmichael. A short drive, lined by rhododendrons, leads you up to the holiday house, where you will find a fine granite structure that has been extended over the years to become more of a mansion than a house. This holiday house in Scotland is ideal for family holidays for a week in the summer, and get-togethers and weekends away in the quieter months.

Within you will discover an elegant hallway adorned with stags' heads, which leads to the expansive drawing room on one side and the large dining room to the other, as the two main front rooms. Whilst there is still an air of grandeur here, this is a house that is like walking into a family home, where you feel comfortable and relaxed immediately. Beyond can be found the kitchen, the breakfast room and the very substantial games room. This room with a magnificent fire-place can be used on a multi-purpose basis, as the table tennis table can be removed to create a party room for a ceilidh or impromptu party.  All the accommodation can be found on the two floors above, with a selection of 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, making this ideal to sleep up to 17 people. The expansive grounds are great for children to relax in, whilst in summer croquet can be enjoyed too.

  • Reception Rooms

    The drawing room, with its open fire, and bay window with views to the front, is a large expansive room, full of comfortable sofas for your group of 17 people to relax in. Even with the fine pictures and antique furniture, the emphasis is definitely on comfort with so many sofas and armchairs to choose from. The elegant hallway with the stairs to the accommodation level above, leads off in two directions, one to the kitchen and the other to the games room. Accessed by steps, the games room is a large later extension, which houses a table tennis table. However it is more than a games room, with fine pictures on the wall and a feature carved fireplace with open fire, and by removing the table from the room, it can be a party room, for a drinks party, a ceilidh or a small wedding function. Access directly on to the lawn is available from here. Additionally, next door there is a snug room, with a TV and toys for smaller children.

    Kitchen & Dining
    The front facing dining room houses a long dining table where everyone can sit around in comfort. With an open fire at one end and radiators throughout, this is a warm room, as well as an elegant one, with swag curtains, and family portraits and old prints on the walls. The kitchen is located to the rear of the house and is in two sections. Firstly there is breakfast room with dining table that can seat 14/16 people, and then there is the modest kitchen section, with a well equipped kitchen space, with 5-hob “Rangemaster”, with grill and oven, as well as an extra oven to the side. Next door is the large utility room with freezer, with the laundry room beyond, with washing machines and tumble dryer.

Good contact with owner and housekeeper. Perfect property for our family group of three generations.

Glad to hear you enjoyed this large holiday home and gave it the full thumbs up. Hopefully, we'll be able to welcome you and your family back next year.

Very good

Thank you!

The house is a wonderful rabbit-warren of a place and our children found it an exciting and adventurous place with just the right amount of scariness with all those stags heads above the doors. It was also very comfortable in terms of its furnishings and character. Good to find a house with so much original art work displayed! The kitchen did feel a bit small and tight when our family cooked for 16 folk, but the adjacent eating area was useful in addition to the dining room for the adults. After we arrived, we found the floors were a bit sticky and dirty and the children's feet became quickly blackened as a consequence. My daughter washed all the floors so it should be much improved now, but a good clean throughout might be useful at some point! Otherwise, we much enjoyed our time at the house and would recommend it to our friends.

We're really glad you had a great time. It's a perfect spot for family get-togethers. We've fed your comments on the floors back to the housekeeping team and will keep an eye on future guest feedback. Thank you.

My enquiries were dealt with speedily and the person I made contact with via e-mail was knowledgable and helpful.

Thanks for your feedback. Much appreciated. Don't forget to ask about our Loyalty Discount if you book with us again.
