Cottages with Wellness room, wood fired sauna, games room and tennis court in
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. We now also have a brand new wood fired sauna within our Wellness room. The wood clad Wellness room contains gentle gym equipment and has great views east.
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. Now we have our wood fired sauna in our Wellness room which is clad with wood sourced from our local sawmill.
In order to increase our green credentials even more we are now excited to announce that we have a small 18 m wind turbine on the hill behind the holiday houses. It is only an 11 kw turbine but we hope that we will generate enough kw hours to cover our on site electrical needs.

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 the dogs!
Suki Stobbs purchased this Cottage in 1995
Why Suki Stobbs chose Perth
We moved to this location from Fife. 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 or here in Perthshire or Angus. 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.

Exactly what I needed. Some quiet time exploring the countryside with my dog.
I stayed in the Pittmiddle Cottage, which is the 2 bedroom cottage next to the Games Cottage. It has everything you need for a relaxing home away from home. One thing I would have liked to have had, is kitchen roll and kleenex tissues. Those are things you use all of the time, but wouldn't bring with you. And maybe a nice comfy throw for the leather sofa. Other than that, it was great. Gorgeous location. Great walks all around you, and perfectly located between Dundee and Perth. If I could live there, I would. That is how beautiful the area is. The farmhouse and cottages are very nicely done. Just an outstanding place to stay. Plus eco-friendly. Suki is a great host and communicator. Will be on my short list of local bolt holes.
Delighted the dog walking was enjoyable, I never tire of the countryside views. Thank you for your interior pointers - I often have kitchen roll and kleenex across my properties but not consistently so will make sure I do. Leather sofas, you are right, can be cold and I have always had throws next door but not in Pitmiddle so I will add that in.
Fantastic Return Visit
This was our second stay in Suki's lovely Pitmiddle Cottage. It's located just a short distance from the main road, and less than a 15 minute drive into Dundee where you have some lovely restaurants and a very easy in and out ASDA for your grocery needs. The cottage does interconnect with Outfield, but the layout with the bedrooms on opposite ends, ensure a quiet night no matter what time your neighbors might retire. Thick curtains in the bedroom also help get a good nights sleep. Very comfortable accommodations, and is fitted out for almost any need you have in the kitchen. A very detailed notebook gives you the ins and outs of the cottage (how to operate stove, wifi code, etc) and suggests lots of things to do in the area. The games room is great for a quick round of pool, ping pong or darts in the evening. If you're wanting a base in the "Heart of Scotland" you can not go wrong staying at any of Suki's cottage on Outfield Farm. We look forward to a return visit in the future.
Great cottage in lovely area.
The cottage is lovely and provides everything you need for your holiday. We did some lovely walks (up the hill) and a bit of cycling around the cottage. Tennis court is great too. The only suggestion I would give is that the games room could do with a bit of an update. We were lucky with the weather, so visited some nice places. Would definitely recommend.
Many thanks for reviewing and as I said your locally caught trout was delicious and most appreciated.
Great house, location and stay
All of the above although floor boards and doors (loudly squeaking) could do with some attention. Otherwise, really enjoyed our stay.
Thanks for taking time to submit a review and will investigate the squeaky wood.
Lovely, comfortable and peaceful. Will be sure to come back if opportunity presents.
Lovely to meet you all. Thanks for the golf balls - will be most useful in the heather/woods/gorse!
Super accommodation. Friendly greeting but not intrusive. Great location. Dogs loved the walks on site & fabulous views over the estuary. Well presented, clean and homely . We use cottages frequently and this one will be hard to beat!
