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 Perth
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!!

This is one of the most perfect "home away from home" vacation spots in Scotland. The location is just beautiful and very relaxing. My boyfriend and I spent a week here and fell in love with everything about the cottage, the surroundings, the convenience to the little village of Auchterarder and how close we were to so many other places to visit if we were so inclined. We really did not want to venture out that much as we were very happy to just relax and take some walks around the area, cook our meals in the charming kitchen, and wake up to the birds singing in the fields.
The "Retreat" is truly a 5 Star accommodation. The owner, Lisa, met us soon after our arrival and was very helpful with information about the area and how things operated in the cottage.
After spending a month in Scotland, the Retreat stands out in our minds and hearts as one of the biggest highlights of our trip. We will be back and looking forward to our next stay at the "Retreat".
What a glowing review from Montana, thank you so much! It was a pleasure to meet you both and we were extremely happy that you had a wonderful stay at The Retreat.
Lovely stay, very relaxing with stunning views. Everything need on hand and spotlessly clean. Would come back again.
Very pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at The Retreat and thank you for the great review 😊
Perfect. Everything had been thought of.
Perfect location, high standards, a gem of a place, would recommend highly.
Thank you very much for your great review - we were delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and are hoping to return soon.
Talk about a 5 star cottage. This is it! So many places never match the pictures or description given of them. This cottage not only meets those descriptions and pictures but exceeds them. Don't even think about it, just rent this cottage. You won't be disappointed. Thank you very much Lisa.
What a pleasure to get a lovely review from Iowa - thank you and glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Retreat in Scotland!
Relaxing coxy retreat
I can't even put to words how quaint and lovely this Retreat House is. Every window has an amazing view. When we were there the weather was rainy but it didn't keep us from adventuring. We took day trips all around Scotland and then nestled in to the cozy cottage at night with a fire, wine and dessert. We are from Colorado, USA and had such an easy time booking with Lisa. She is very helpful and gives you so much good information. Lisa greeted us upon arrival and even let us pick veggies from their garden just down the street. I would highly recommend the Retreat house whether you are wanting to stay inside or adventure outside, its a perfect house.
Wonderful start to 2016
We spent New Year week at The Retreat and it was the perfect relaxing and peaceful start to the year. From the moment we arrived to the table set for tea with home baking, the real Christmas tree and a very warm welcome from the owner, Lisa, we knew we were in for a great break. The cottage is as lovely as it looks in the photos, with everything very clean and well maintained. The location lets you feel totally away from it all, but with the convenience of shops and restaurants only a short drive away. We have already booked to return to this fabulous cottage!
Were delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your Christmas at the Retreat and look forward to welcoming you back again.
