Perth Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom cottage, sleeps 6, peaceful with great views over the Tay estuary

Eppie is a traditional single storey cottage, extended and refurbished to a high standard. This comfortable, homely self catering cottage is adjoining to a second holiday cottage but not internally connected (they have separate entrances). They can be rented alone or together.

Eppie sleeps six with two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. The master double boasts a king size bed, patio doors leading to the garden and an ensuite shower room. There is a separate family bathroom (bath with shower over). The living area and kitchen is open plan with patio doors out to the garden.

The cottage has a garden with both grass and a patio area, parking, garden shed where bicycles can be stored, and an outdoor drying area. A BBQ and garden furniture is provided. The cottage is situated on a quiet road with very little passing traffic.

Dogs are welcome but please note there will be an additional £20 charged.

The cottage has super views of the Sidlaw hills and the River Tay. In a rural setting, two miles from the village of Inchture and between Perth and Dundee, Eppie makes a great base for exploring Perthshire, Angus and Fife and beyond.

My name is Melissa Hope. The Hope family has farmed on Powgavie for over 100 years. The two Powgavie Cottages, Eppie and Flisk, formerly farm workers' homes, were extended and refurbished in 2008. Since completing the cottages we have enjoyed welcoming guests from around the world and sharing our beautiful part of Scotland.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. The attention to detail was impeccable. The owners have thought of everything. The cottage is set in lovely countryside with spectacular views. Despite being a lovely rural retreat there is loads to do in the local area. The A to Z guide provided in the cottage allowed us to plan daily excursions.

All the family had a fantastic time and we will definitely go back and would highlky recommend this cottage.

Five star quality!!
