My wife and i with two kids stayed in the gardeners cottage for two nights and absolutely loved it especially with the weather being so nice all weekend. We arrived on the Friday and met Ailsa who showed us around the 2 bedroom cottage. She had prepared lovely steak pie and mash for us which went down a treat and also a complimentary hamper of goodies was waiting for us with things like jam. Coffee. Bread. Cookies. Sugar. Hot chocolate and tea. It's a well presented 2 bedroom cottage with sitting room, kitchen, downstairs toilet with shower, utility room, and upstairs both rooms had en suite. I had to phone Ailsa twice regarding the dish washer and question about the Wi-Fi and she answered straight away which was great as it makes the difference having communication when we needed help with some things. We went in to Crieff which was a 10-15 minute drive away so of your looking for luxury accommodation with stunning views then look no further than this place you won't be disappointed.
We, plus two friends stayed at Gardeners Cottage for two nights to attend a nearby wedding in Crieff and were staggered by what we found.
Set in gorgeous surroundings, the immaculate and stylish cottage was merely the tip of the iceberg. Ailsa and James put the majority of the hospitality industry to shame with their open, welcoming nature in which nothing is too much trouble - you are treated like old friends rather than customers.
The food left for us to cook (get the cheese souffle, steak pie and brownies) was utterly delicious, and they simply could not have done anything more to ensure our trip was perfect. And to top it off, two adorable black labs! Their plans suggest the farm is just going to get better and better in the future, so get to know them early!
A definite return journey is in order so we can spend more time relaxing, making use of the facilites and surroundings and meeting the animals rather than dashing about. A true gem that we couldn't stop talking about for the entire trip - or the five-hour journey home.

Absolutely amazing accommodation in beautiful countryside! We stayed in the 2 bedroom Coachmans cottage. Every little detail has been thought of, from fab welcome pack with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, homemade chutneys and jams as well as dishwasher tablets! We arrived on a cold Friday evening and Ailsa had delicious homemade bread and chocolate cookies waiting for us and also milk and butter in the fridge. The house was also cosy and warm and the log burner all set ready to light. All furnishings and fixtures are super quality and amazing large comfortable beds and bedding, along with huge bathrooms with Arran aromatic toiletries. Nothing is a bother for Ailsa and you must try her homemade meals, not forgetting to order croissants and pain eu raisin delivered warm to your cottage in the morning. Thank you so much for making our stay just perfect and we can't wait to book a return visit.
We're just home from a stay at Blairmore , we stayed in Gardeners cottage for 2 nights whilst up to visit the Enchanted Forest ; we harassed working parents had a blissful, relaxing time & were glad to have booked prepared meals as part of our stay. We barely lifted a finger all weekend & think we actually came away with more food than we took with us.
The cottage is done out in a restful pallet complementing the scenery outdoors, it's equipped with the best of the best, the bedroom was so dark we all slept like logs. We ordered mousaka & steak pie which were both divine & the welcome pack was generous & gratefully received , we've bought cheese on the way home especially so we can sample the blairmore chutneys !
Our 19month old son enjoyed a tour around meeting & feeding the animals & collecting his own egg which had been freshly laid.
We will be back to stay on this tranquil farm with views every which way you look as soon as possible. There is nothing I'd change about our stay, Ailsa & James are fantastic hosts & we can't wait to return
