“A great hideaway with superb views and top class renovation to make for a luxury stay.”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

This cottage is superbly appointed and the owners add some lovely touches to make you feel very welcome. The ground source heating is a particularly nice feature, meaning you came home to a really cosy feel everytime. Lighting up the log fire on a cold winters' night was great too!
TV and WiFi access are laid on and the two bedrooms are spacious and extremely comfortable with great storage. The views are stunning across a wide glen with hills in the distance. It's hidden away down a farm track but not too far to drive to nearby Auchterarder and with easy access to the A9 for Perth or Glasgow. Hosts are very friendly and approachable, I would highly recommend this place.

“A Perfect Scottish Hideaway”
Reviewed 5 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We have just returned from our third visit to The Retreat, another perfect stay! We were as always made to feel very welcome, and there were many special touches on our arrival - a roaring log fire, tea and cakes, fresh bread, milk, eggs, a bottle of wine etc. All very much appreciated.
The cottage is superbly appointed and is in a beautiful isolated location with stunning views.
The owners have done an excellent job with this cottage and will shortly be opening a second cottage on the estate. We look forward to returning again soon for another peaceful holiday! Thank you!
