About Mrs Melissa Hope

My name is Melissa Hope. The Hope family has farmed on Powgavie for over 100 years. The two Powgavie Cottages, Eppie and Flisk, formerly farm workers' homes, were extended and refurbished in 2008. Since completing the cottages we have enjoyed welcoming guests from around the world and sharing our beautiful part of Scotland.

Mrs Melissa Hope purchased this Cottage in 2008

                                                          We absolutely adored the cottage and found the location very convenient for travel! Quiet and clean, very friendly hosts! We plan to come back on a future holiday!

                                                          Lovely clean property in a wonderful quiet location.

                                                          Alan D.

                                                          The cottage was perfect for our needs and it was in really good condition. Everything you could need had been considered. The location is very rural but the village of Inchture is just down the road. We went to the hotel there for diner which was really good. Would definitely recommend this property.

                                                          Stunning property... Stunning views :D

                                                          Natasha B.Chesterfield, Derbyshire

                                                          A fantastic weeks getaway, the views were exceptional and was bliss waking up to gorgeous weather and sitting outside the bedroom patio doors with a morning cup of tea. Cottage has everything to offer that you could possibly need. Was amazing watching the wildlife day in day out on the garden, my children loved the space with their cameras capturing memories.

                                                          We don't drive so was reliant and buses which would pick up and drop off on the bend up from the cottage which was brilliant. Also lovely walks to neighbouring villages :D

                                                          Only thing I could possibly have a little moan about which is me being very picky.... I would love the patio doors to be extended to the other side of the cottage so I could sit and take in the views from the left and right of the garden.... Haha that's me being picky though;)

                                                          Overall mine and my families holiday was amazing and would definitely book again in the future:D

                                                          P.s. the rasberries and strawberries were a lovely welcome gift and went with my bottle of cava deliciously:D thankyou again x

                                                          The outside of the cottage belies its interior. It is spacious and beautifully appointed.

                                                          Denyse M.

                                                          We stayed at the cottage as we were near to the venue for a family wedding and how pleased we were with our choice. The views of the Tay were stunning and the sunrises were amazing. We were a party of 6 ,which included a 3 year old and a 1 year old ,and the arrangement of the bedrooms away from the lounge meant we did not disturb their 7pm - 7am sleep! We knew Perth well as our daughter and son in law lived here for a time but it was good to explore the countryside around the cottage. A handy local shop provided morning newspapers and other essentials but it was good to be away from the hustle and bustle as the cottage stands alone in its glorious setting. Everything you might require for general day to day needs were included so we wanted for nothing. How do they get that bed linen so pristine and crease free! We would not hesitate to recommend this perfect cottage. P s. Melissa also popped in to check we were happy with everything. A resounding YES!

                                                          Great property's

                                                          We hired both cottages for a long weekend to attend a family wedding. We were all very happy with the accommodation, it is clean and well equipt. We would certainly go back.

                                                          Proved to be 'A lovely holiday cottage in Perthshire'.

                                                          Anne B.

                                                          Clean, most comfortable and charming - we had a lovely peaceful holiday stay in this cottage. It was just as described in the advert.....only better!

                                                          Everything we could possibly have needed was supplied - and it is located so conveniently too. Within minutes you are on the main A90 between Perth and Dundee, and so this was an ideal base for anyone wanting to visit Scotland's towns, cities and the eastern coast.

                                                          As you sit at the meal table you have an amazing panoramic view and could hear a pin drop.....it is so quiet! There were only two of us, but the cottage is spacious and would be most ideal for a family. The owners were very welcoming and helpful.

                                                          We do hope to visit this area again soon, and if so, would most definitely make this cottage our first choice!
