Perthshire Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage with games room and tennis court in the Braes of Gowrie, near Dundee

On site we have 3 properties, all with wi-fi in the living areas. The sandstone steading building is in an L shape with the long part of the 'L' housing the 3 bedroom property, Outfield, and the shorter part of the 'L' housing the 2 bedroom property, Pitmiddle. These properties are therefore semi-detached and these 2 properties can be used as one large property when the interconnecting door is unlocked (this gives you a large 5 bedroom cottage called Pitfield).

Also on site backing on to Pitmiddle you have the detached 1 bedroom cottage Honeysuckle.

All guests are able to have shared use of the on site tennis court and games room. The surrounding garden area around Pitmiddle Outfield and Honeysuckle is not fenced. The properties are on a very small farm accessed via a farm road.

We have tried to be as environmentally friendly as we can with our holiday houses. When we converted Pitmiddle and Outfield from farm buildings into accommodation we kept the same footprint so some stables are now bedrooms! We have used reclaimed wooden flooring and the houses are powered by a geothermal ground source heat pump. Our water supply comes off the hill and is filtered in our water treatment area before going to the houses. All our fixtures and fittings are sourced locally.

In order to increase our green credentials even more we are now excited to announce that we have just put up a small 18 m wind turbine on the hill behind the holiday houses. It is only an 11 kw turbine but we hope that after its first year we will have generated enough kw hours to cover our on site electrical needs.

Meals: If you wish to order a meal for your first night or indeed for any of the days you are with us please contact the owner and she can put you in touch with our recommended cook.

More Details

Details for Pitmiddle 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 2 Bathrooms

This 2 bedroom property is on a very small farm with shared games room, tennis court and summerhouse above tennis court. The accommodation is on ground floor level only with wifi in the living area. At one end of the building, with views south to the River Tay, you will find the master bedroom with its en suite shower room with shower and toilet. The beds can be a superking (6 foot wide) or the beds can be separated to form 2 singles. Next door is the second bedroom which is smaller but the beds are the same. There are 2 zip and link singles that can be put together to form a superking bed. The view here is of the rolling countryside to the east. Next door to the second bedroom you will find the main bathroom which has a large separate shower, bath and toilet. Then you move into the kitchen/living/dining area with large patio doors onto west facing patio where you can see our new wind turbine.

About Suki Stobbs

I live on site with my family in The Farmhouse. I was born and brought up in Scotland. Property is my business and these holiday rentals are part of that business. I work from home so am delighted to bump into guests and have a chat! Feel free to ask about things to see and do in the area or further afield. You will spot me walking my unruly dogs!

Suki Stobbs purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Suki Stobbs chose Perthshire

We moved to this location from Fife as it was half way between Perth and Dundee where we had business interests We wanted great views and country location. In fact the location is a winner for most people who come here - some want proximity to Dundee, others want easy access to Edinburgh and others want to be able to get to St. Andrews and all of the golf courses over in Fife. We took a few years to convert an old farm steading into the holiday cottages called Pitmiddle and Outfield. We are delighted with the result and opened for business way back in 2005, can't believe it is that long ago. Honeysuckle always existed as a little bothy so we decorated it in the same colours and promoted it from a long term rental to a holiday let.

We have tried to cover every eventuality offering a 1 bedroom cottage, 2 bedroom cottage, 3 bedroom cottage or the 2 joined together to give a 5 bedroom cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

As you walk around up here you have the most fantastic views towards Abernyte village, The River Tay and King's Seat. You feel on top of the world - almost alpine (especially in the snow!). All guests can use the summer house above the tennis court and take in the rolling countryside around us. We are however only 20 minutes by car to either Dundee or Perth city centres.

We are trying hard to be green - you will spot our new wind turbine which we hope will cover our electricity costs - it's only a little one but we have high hopes! All properties have reclaimed wooden flooring and use a soak away drainage system. We also have our own private water supply with its water treatment room where the water is constantly filtered and backwashed daily. Pitmiddle and Outfield also benefit from underfloor heating powered by the ground source heat pump in Outfield.

We hope too you will enjoy the animals round about. We have our own alpacas and hens and in the summer our neighbouring farmer puts some of his sheep in 1 of our fields. We do also provide satellite wifi for our guests which is now something I believe people come to expect. Help yourselves to logs, they all come from here.

Ideale per gli amanti della campagna

  • 3 of 5

Situato in un piacevole e tranquillo contesto rurale. Prossimo a Dundee, dove si possono trovare supermarket e svariati servizi.

All'interno il cottage è spazioso, con cucina ben attrezzata.

Ci risulta essere discretamente pulito.

I proprietari ci sono apparsi non troppo accoglienti e non così flessibili riguardo ai giorni e orari di arrivo, come invece è indicato nella descrizione.

Owner's Response: I proprietari hanno accolto gli ospiti normalmente, come descritto nella mail di conferma della prenotazione, lasciando agli ospiti la possibilita' di arrivare a qualsiasi ora, il venerdi' dopo le 16.00. I proprietari tuttavia sono spiacenti di non aver potuto permettere l'arrivo degli ospiti in un altro giorno, in quanto in Luglio e Agosto i cottage sono sempre affittati, per cui si rende necessario organizzare partenze e arrivi in modo da permettere una efficiente organizzazione della pulizia dei cottage e il cambio completo di tutto quanto fornito. Negli altri periodi dell'anno e' invece possibile prenotare, arrivare e partire in qualsiasi giorno della settimana. In ogni caso vi ringraziamo della vostra recensione.

perfekte Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist sehr gepflegt und gut ausgestattet und entspricht in allen Punkten der Beschreibung. Auch das Spiel-Haus (Billard, Tischtennis, Dart), das den Bewohnern der drei Ferienhäuser zur Verfügung steht, ist in einem Superzustand. Die Lage ist ideal für Tagesausflüge. Wir haben uns wohlgefühlt und können Pitmiddle uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
