Cow Shed Luxury Holiday Cottage
Cow Shed Luxury Holiday Cottage to rent Perthshire is a fab hideaway for couples, with panoramic views across the hills of Highland Perthshire. This stylish one-bedroom conversion of a former cow byre has fantastic state-of-the-art facilities and stunning views.
Although intended for two, it’s generous in size with a large open plan kitchen/living room / dining space designed to make the most of the views across the Perthshire hills.
‘Feels like a 5-Star Hotel’
The owners have an eye for interior design borne out by the upmarket furnishings and lighting, including lovely Harris tweed curtains and cushions. The décor throughout is top notch with the colour schemes reflecting the muted greens and browns of the local landscape. It feels like the suite of a 5-star hotel.
Relax in comfort
The comfy sofa and a multi-fuel burning stove mean the lounge is ideal for relaxing, while the kitchen is very well equipped, with a dishwasher, microwave, cooker and fridge. The generous welcome pack includes fantastic freshly baked scones and bread from the nearby Blair Atholl Watermill, and honey from the local bee keeper.
In case the weather is poor – it occasionally rains in Scotland – the cottage comes with free Wi-Fi, HD Freesat box with 32″ HDTV, Blu-Ray player, and a library of films and books, and a mini hifi system.
The large bedroom has an extremely comfortable super-kingsize bed (splits into twins), high end décor including top quality soft furnishings and stunning wooden feature wall.
There is decent sized bathroom with a shower, (but no bath) and a utility drying room area with washing machine & tumble dryer.
Stunning Views over the glen
One of the highlights of the Cow Shed luxury holiday cottage is the decking area in front of the lounge with elevated views across the glen over to the mature woodlands and hills beyond. Perfect for a BBQ or a glass of something chilled. There is also a pleasing garden courtyard area, with some lovely raised beds full of interesting plants and flowers.
This is fantastic walking country, ranging from rambles from the door to high level hillwalking and Munro bagging. The friendly and helpful owners have provided loads of information on local walks and activities.
The Cow Shed Luxury Holiday Cottage is an outstanding refurbishment in the heart of Highland Perthshire with superb luxury facilities. It’s the perfect bolthole for a romantic escape for two or even your honeymoon!
Enjoy a day’s walking. There are loads of suggestions in the folder in the cottage. Favourites of ours include a walk up Glen Tilt, one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland and accessible only on foot. Or how about an ascent of Schiehallion (1083m), with breathtaking views across the wilds of Rannoch Moor?
Take a drive along Loch Tay to the amazing Crannog Centre, which features a unique reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling.
Visit nearby Pitlochry. Take in a distillery tour at Eradour Distillery, the smallest in Scotland. Or go for a wander by the famous salmon ladder, do some shopping or even try a round of golf. The Pitlochry Festival Theatre features a repertory company and many nationally acclaimed touring productions.
Nearby Blair Atholl is well worth exploring, especially to the dramatic Blair Castle, with 700 years of Scottish history, stunning gardens and over 30 rooms on display. The charming Blair Atholl Watermill is a working watermill, it’s great for lunch and offers fantastic cakes in its legendary tearoom.
Explore nearby Queen’s View at Loch Tummel – great woodland walks and one of the most famous views in Scotland. Killicrankie is well worth a stop with its dramatic gorge, battlefield visitor centre and Jacobite tales
