About Lisa Roberts
Lisa Roberts owns and manages the Retreat. Lisa lives on the Estate with her four children and husband, Jamie, who farms the surrounding agricultural land and manages the fishing and woodlands. The Retreat is one of two holiday properties on the Estate. They run a number of other successful long term let properties and wanted to give visitors from both the UK and overseas the opportunity to sample Scotland's wonderful rural life - somewhere they could come to relax, unwind and enjoy their beautiful surroundings. Lisa used to run a tourism business out of the five star Gleneagles Hotel so is very familiar with the local area; the Retreat has a wealth of information for visitors to help plan their excursions as well as recommendations for dining in the area. Both Jamie and Lisa are sociable and well travelled and enjoy meeting the many visitors who come from all over the world to visit this special Retreat in a beautiful area of Perthshire.
Lisa Roberts purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Lisa Roberts chose Auchterarder
We decided to renovate this particular property and turn it into a holiday let because it has the perfect location for a holiday in Scotland - very private with stunning views in all directions and yet 10 mins from local shops and Crieff with the gateway to the Highlands on the door step.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Retreat is an award-winning property and has a large number of repeat visitors because it is a beautiful and very comfortable house in which to relax. The location is stunning, without stepping in a car, visitors can enjoy many walks through the woodlands and along the River Earn, where they can see fish jumping, deer, pheasant, partridge and red squirrels crossing woodland trails and birds of prey soaring overhead. Guests cam enjoy the use of a new astro tennis court and also free fishing on the River Earn. The Retreat is also incredibly romantic. Couples come back time and time again to enjoy quality time together, having the UK's best restaurant 10 mins away is also a bonus! As a result, we have had many engagements happening at the cottage... both planned and unplanned!!

We had a fantastic time at the retreat. We where welcomed by Lisa who showed us around the retreat and even left a basket of books and toys for my kids to explore. Lisa and Jamie have thought of everything at the retreat. It is a beautiful place to relax. It was a perfect setting for our engagement as my partner proposed to me. The only thing we needed was an extra nights stay so we booked an additional night! Can’t wait to return again!
Thank you so much for this really lovely review - we were so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay!
The perfect retreat!
My wife and I stayed here over the Christmas week and had a wonderful time. The property is perfectly named as it sits on its own in a quiet spot on farmland overlooking rolling hills. However, Auchterarder and Perth are only a short distance away and the property has all the creature comforts you need and finished to a high standard. Lisa and Jamie were wonderful hosts and even put a Christmas Tree up for us and made sure the hot tub was ready and kettled boiled for when we arrived. We’ve already booked it again for next year!
It was a pleasure to welcome you both at The Retreat and we were so pleased that you had a lovely Christmas and will be coming back next year! Thank you so much for the very kind review.
Just returned from an all too short couple of days at this gorgeous cottage. What an idyllic, peaceful place to escape the pressure of everyday life. We were welcomed by a lovely roaring fire and shortly after, had the pleasure of meeting Lisa who came to welcome us and check we knew where everything was etc. Everything about this property is perfect & the attention to detail is impressive. The cottage itself is spotless and thoughtfully furnished, the hot tub is fantastic and the view is something very special (I am missing it already!)!
A big thank you to Lisa & Jamie for creating such a perfect retreat and for looking after us during our stay.
We want to tell everyone about this gorgeous place, but also selfishly want to keep it “our secret” so we don’t have problems rebooking!! We will definitely be back.
Thank you so much... reading your extremely kind review has really made my day! Delighted that you enjoyed your first stay at The Retreat and there were extra celebrations with the amazing Rugby win!
What a beautiful property, in a glorious location. Sitting on the hot tub in utter peace and quiet was just wonderful. Grandson had great fun helping to bring in logs for the fire!! The attention to detail was impressive, everything you can need is to hand. Hubby loved the isolation!
So pleased that all three generations of the family enjoyed their stay so much 😊a memorable birthday celebration!
We loved this cottage. Lisa was great!! Highly recommended!
It was lovely to meet you both and very happy that you enjoyed your stay at The Retreat - Tennessee looks pretty special too!
A well appointed property in idyllic surroundings. The perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet close enough to everything you might possibly want. The log fired hot tub makes it extra special.
Thank you so much for the lovely review and we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your first stay at The Retreat!
