'Wow!' is the first word that springs to mind when you step inside this amazing cottage. The beautiful interior has been renovated to the highest speculation and is full of style and character.
The cottage is a superb, Listed example of Georgian architecture. It has been lovingly restored to successfully marry the charm and character of a traditional stone house with the best progressive eco-build practices.
The entire interior has been newly renovated and modernised to incorporate a very large open-plan contemporary living space with solid oak floors and underfloor heating throughout. The ceilings are incredibly high and the unique central sandstone chimney is a striking feature which facilitates the definition of the three living areas in the heart of the cottage.
A stylish, fully equipped kitchen complete with all mod-cons and a Caithness stone worktop leads to the bright, wooden panelled dining area. The large oak table seats 8 comfortably, and offers fantastic South views out into the garden and beyond.
A wonderful atmospheric and cosy Lounge is created around the wood-burner, where comfortable leather sofas are perfect for stretching out on in front of the fire.
Beautiful Georgian windows have shutters and window seats and are the perfect place to enjoy a book or get the binoculars out and study visiting wildlife.
There are two spacious, bright, South-facing Bedrooms:
The Double (en suite) Room is beautifully decorated with an extremely comfortable kingsize bed, made up with crisp Egyptian cotton linen.
Both Bedrooms have more than ample hanging and shelf space and come with hair-dryers.
The En Suite is very light and high-ceilinged with a large Shower and window.
The Twin Room is also high-ceilinged and extremely bright, with windows to both the South and West. There are two twin beds which can be made into a double if necessary.
The Family Bathroom is large and spacious with a generous doubled ended bath, separate walk in shower and is stocked with organic shampoo and soap. The lighting is high-tech; enjoy a romantic candle-lit bath bathed in stunning blue light!
Adjacent to the back door is a separate Outhouse/Utility Room, which is the perfect Washing and Drying Room. There is a large stainless steel sink, washing machine, an overhead pulley and underfloor heating. Spacious, airy and warm, it is the ideal place for pets to sleep when they are not in the garden. Please note that, due to our allergy free status, pets are not allowed in the house at any time.
For your Entertainment there is a 57' Smart/HD flat screen TV with a sub-woofer sound system and DVD player. There is a good selection of maps as well as interesting books on Scottish wildlife, history and culture.
Guests at the Woodland Retreat can also enjoy playing tennis on an astro grass tennis court. The court is a short distance from the cottage and has the same stunning views across the Strathearn Valley.
Visitors can enjoy many wonderful walks through private 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.
The Woodland Retreat is also centrally positioned to visit top tourist attractions; The City of Perth, Glenturret whisky distillery, Drummond Castle Gardens and Crieff are only 15mins from the cottage. Scone Palace, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument are all easily accessible in under 30mins as is Loch Tay and the Scottish Highlands.
Edinburgh and Glasgow are both reached within an hour, making the Woodland Retreat the ideal base for a holiday in Scotland.
