Great short break
Lovely warm bungalow. Ideal for our short break before travelling further north.
Nicely decorated and well equipped. Loved some of the original features.
Garden perfect for the dog and some lovely sitting out areas.
Clean, comfortable and well situated cottage.
My wife and I spent 5 days in Wyncroft cottage recently. We found it to be perfect for our requirements. Everything you need is provided and a welcome pack of milk and shortbread was a very nice, and most welcome touch. The one single thing we would have liked is a rack to place plates in once washed, but that's a minor detail. There are lots of off road walks within a 10 minute stroll from the cottage. The nicest of these for us was the riverside walk. There are also supermarkets, pubs and all the carry outs you would ever need within a short walk. We would definitely return.

Many thanks for taking the time to post this lovely review. Dog walkers are really spoilt for choice in this area. For information for future guests, there are actually 2 dish drying racks, one stored under the sink with the washing up bowl and another in the cupboard next to the oven. Remember to look in all the cupboards!
The cottage was very well appointed, comfortable and had easy parking outside. Our greyhound Trixie loved exploring new territory in the back garden and she settled very well for the 3 nights we stayed there. Hopefully we will be back sometime next year.
Thanks for this positive review. The cottage is really cosy to come back to after a chilly day out. Trixie was the perfect guest!
The property was great -- with all the needed essentials. And Elspeth was delightful! Blairgowrie is a good base for exploring the surrounding areas. We traveled to Stirling, Edinburgh, Crieff, Perth, and Blair Castle among others. Gorgeous countryside.
we are so pleased that our guests took the time to post this lovely positive review. I really enjoyed meeting our visitors and being able to take the time to explain all the comforts of the cottage and recommend some visits and trips.
It would be a pleasure to welcome them again in the future.
Enjoyed our holiday .
Comfortable house , enjoyed our stay
Thank you for this review. I think your dog had a great time! Come back soon.
Pretty village, friendly people, wonderful accommodation.
This cottage was in such a convenient location, close to everything and was fully equipped, clean and tidy. Heating was excellent, kitchen compact but very workable and overall a very pleasant stay. Elspeth really looked after us and I would certainly revisit this area again and stay in this lovely little cottage
