The Distillery – Farm Holiday Cottage
This is a delightful farm barn conversion that richly deserves its VisitScotland 4 Star rating – in fact we would give it 5 Stars! Originally a real distillery with history dating back to 1819, the owners have created a beautiful and spacious house, retaining many original features.
Accessed by a short private tarmac road, there is ample parking around Distillery Cottage which sits on its own ground away from the owners’ property. Surrounded by fields, visitors can take a 15 minute stroll via a local path network into the Highland town of Crieff. In fact there’s a swimming pool not far away at the local Community Campus and there are numerous leisure opportunities at the Crieff Hydro, from tennis, golf, horse riding, swimming, mountain biking and beauty salons. The town itself is well served with a good range of places to eat out and visitor attractions include The Famous Grouse Experience, Stuart Crystal, Crieff Visitor Centre, Bennybeg Garden Centre, The Ceramic Experience, Drummond Castle Gardens and Innerpeffray. Golf Courses abound, with around 40 in Perthshire alone. In the immediate area, golf at Crieff, Muthill, Comrie, Gleneagles, Auchterarder and Dunning. There are lovely walks too, on The Knock, Lady Mary’s walk and others.
The house is spacious and beautifully fitted out to a very high standard. The garden is fenced with a gravel area for parking and the house is paved on three sides. The open plan, double height ceiling sitting room is separated from the dining and kitchen area by a handsome double sided wood burner for which fuel is supplied. The floors are oak throughout and there are three sets of French doors, 2 leading to the garden. The wall mounted 42″ TV has Freeview Channels. The dining table seats 6 and the fully fitted kitchen area has a breakfast bar with two stools, fridge freezer with ice making, hob, double oven, dishwasher and microwave. The spacious utility room has coat hooks, sink, washing machine and tumble drier, a large cupboard with shelving and access to the front of the property. There is a ground floor double bedroom with ensuite electric shower which has been designed to accommodate a wheel chair and there is no step into the shower. There is a separate access to this ensuite from the Hall. On the upper floor there is a large king sized double bedroom with dressing room and ensuite with a double ended bath and walk in power shower with rainforest and second shower head. French doors overlook the garden and there is a wall mounted 32 inch TV and two easy chairs. The twin bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an ensuite with large bath and power shower.
Travelling further afield, head north via the scenic ‘Sma Glen to Dunkeld or Aberfeldy, Pitlochy and Lochs Tay and Rannoch. Head west to Comire, Lochearnhead, Killin, Glen Coe and Fort William, and Oban, Dunblane and Glasgow. Head east to Perth, Dundee, Fife and St Andrews and the Angus Glens. Head south to Edinburgh, Stirling and the Falkirk Wheel. Return again and again for a great holiday expericene in Perthshire.
This was by far the highest quality house we have stayed in, the house was exceptional in terms of quality and layout, we could not fault it in any way. The photos on the website do not do this house justice. We had 2 young children who loved the sand table, swingball and other garden toys provided. The location is quiet yet a close walk to the bakers. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, the cake on arrival was wonderful. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the distillery and would highly recommend this property. Searched online for a property in Perth area that was not restricted to sat-sat hols. The flexibility of start date was the main reason I booked this house.
