Blairgowrie and East Perthshire Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom Cottage sleeps 4, pet friendly, quiet location, easy touring

Wyncroft offers comfortable, roomy self-catering accommodation for both outdoor enthusiasts and visitors seeking a cosy retreat, is equipped to sleep 4, with a spacious comfortable double bedroom and colourful twin bedroom and featuring separate living and dining rooms. The kitchen is well equipped for all the visitor should need to feel at home. The cottage is ideal for families or couples looking for an all-seasons holiday in the beautiful Perthshire countryside. The dining room leads out onto the enclosed garden with patio and mature lawn area, ideal for relaxing after a day's sight-seeing. There is a wide and welcoming hall which adds to the feeling of space to spread out. The cottage is quietly situated in a residential area, with easy parking, yet centrally placed for touring, with a large variety of outdoor pursuits such as exploring castles, walking, cycling, skiing & fishing within easy reach. Golf and walking the Cateran Trail are also a major feature of the area. The cottage is an ideal holiday base for exploring the attractive nearby towns of Perth, Dundee, Dunkeld and Pitlochry, and Balmoral, Scone Palace & Glamis Castle are close by. The cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen are also possible day excursions. We are pet friendly - our canine visitors particularly appreciate the enclosed garden and numerous walks all within reach of the front door.

Food, glorious food: Wyncroft is equipped with everything necessary for a self-catering holiday, with a mini supermarket 5 minutes' walk round the corner and a large supermarket 5 minutes' drive away. If a break from the kitchen is needed, Blairgowrie offers a wide range of dining choices, from fish and chip shops, Chinese and Indian takeaways and restaurants, a seafood restaurant, bistro, steak restaurant and several cafes, pubs and hotels. You will also find a fresh fish shop, independent bakers, award-winning butchers supplying prime Scottish meat and game, a cheese shop and a farm shop selling local produce. In summer, there are regular farmers' markets either in the town or within easy reach and there are several farm shops & cafes to be visited in the area. Locally smoked salmon from Dunkeld is a treat and the area is famed for its strawberries and raspberries in summer. For whisky enthusiasts, distilleries in the area include those at Pitlochry, Crieff and Blackford. Try the local icecream!

A warm welcome: We hope you will feel instantly at home when you arrive in Wyncroft. Beds are made up for your arrival with quality bedlinen and ample quality bathroom towels are supplied. The heating is turned on prior to your arrival according to the season. The heating system and shower were renewed in November 2010, ensuring instant, constant hot water and lovely all round heat. A basic starter pack of essentials is provided to cover immediate needs - tea, coffee, milk, sugar, salt, pepper, basic cleaning materials, kitchen cloths, handwash and loo roll. The small Co-op supermarket on the main road into the town is only 5 minutes away, has a very good range of food and drink, snacks and newspapers etc and is open until 10pm every day. The larger Tesco supermarket just off the town centre is also open every day until 10 pm or later in summer (8 pm on Sundays), selling not just food and drink but also non-food items such as clothing, DVDs, CDs, books, electronics and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our recent Dutch guests wrote :"The cottage is very well equipped, and there were some things that you might need instantly, like tea, coffee, sugar, pepper, salt and milk, what is nice, for if you arrive by plane, like we do, such things are not easy to bring along. The house-owner takes good care of the house and her tenants and is very friendly. The town centre is within walking distance, with several nice shops, and a large supermarket (Tesco). There is also a little Farm Shop, on Reform Street, with a very friendly shopkeeper, he sells lots of good and nice things, the every morning freshly baked bread rolls and croissants are very good. In the environment you will find many paths where you can walk, you need however good walking shoes and sometimes wellies, for it can be quite muddy! We are certainly planning to come back and stay in the cottage, if possible!"

Nice cottage for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our holiday at Wyncroft very much.

The house is nice and cosy, clean and spacoius. There is everything for a comfortable stay. Situated in a quiet street in a small and pretty town it is ideal for exploring the nearer landscape, the Grampians and the Trossachs, on the one hand and the coast, Perthsire and Fife, on the other.

We´ve had a realy good contact with the friendly owner, - and we definitely recommend it highly!

A great holiday stay

  • 4 of 5
We found the cottage easily and although I prefer off-street parking, it was no problem parking on this quiet side road. The cottage was lovely, very comfortable, warm and well equipped.
The milk and shortbread on arrival was very welcome and it was nice to meet Elspeth and reassuring to know she was on hand if any problems arose - luckily, they didn't!
Blairgowrie is an excellent location for covering a wide area of Perthshire, Angus and Fife - and Wyncroft was lovely to come back to at the end of each day!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for this lovely review. We can't offer off-street parking, but as this reviewer found, the street is very quiet and it is very easy to park, usually in front of the cottage itself. (There are only about half a dozen houses on each side of the street - it's very short!) The cottage is only a few minutes away from all the major roads but is situated in a very quiet street - ideal for a holiday!
