About george penny
Morag and I are both keen golfers and enjoy being members of Crieff Golf Club. We have enjoyed playing many of the golf courses that are in this part of the world. Both of us were born in Crieff and spent most of our working careers in and around Crieff. We have spent many enjoyable holidays renting apartments or villas in the UK, Europe and Florida and think that we have brought these experiences back to our holiday home and provide you with the level of comfort that will make your stay here an absolute pleasure.

Best location our family has ever experienced
We were met by the nicest people in the world upon our arrival. They made our stay in Scotland easy and helped us in every way they could. The place was spacious and clean and you could see there was put a lot of work in details to make the place look nice. It didn't lack of anything. Everything you would need in a regular home was there. We were also welcomed with strawberry tarte and wine. Cant top that. Also the surroundings were fantastic. from our bedroom window we could see deer fight and lots of bunnys running around on the lawn. Also the owners to dogs were the nicest ever. Friendly and loving dogs. Not afraid at all to leave the kids alone with them. Our children loved to be there and we already talk about coming back. If you are looking for a central place in scotland with all the rest I have been talking about. Look no further. You WILL guaranteed love it.
Thank you, George and Morag!
From the arrival till our departure, we had an amazing time staying at your property! We really appreciated how you made us welcome and looked after us. The house was spotless and we found everything we needed there. We especially appreciated the views from the sun lounge overlooking your lake. Our boys loved playing table tennis and tennis, and they will miss Barney and Buddy. We will be back next year!

The property is a bungalow which suited my elderly mother. Bedrooms were a great size lots of storage. The grounds were beautiful with lots of wildlife and beautiful maintained gardens lots of outside space to sit and admire the views. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and what amazing hosts, can't wait to return and would highly recommend a stay here.
Thank you for your wonderful review. It was a great time for Morag and I too, having such nice neighbours next door for the week. So glad you enjoyed yourselves and will be rooting for Hearts in the final Kenny. Hope to see you again sometime in the future.
This is a fantastic bungalow in a beautiful tranquil setting. The large picture windows overlook a huge garden and pond where you can watch loads of wildlife. We were overwhelmed with the welcome gifts and the thought that goes into what guests might need. Although the property is situated away from the hussle and bussle of towns, they are all easily accessible giving the best of both worlds. George and Morag are the perfect hosts who certainly go above and beyond, and our sincere thanks go to them both for providing us an amazing holiday and somewhere I am sure we will return to.
