The Hayloft holiday cottage South Littleton Farm is a former weaver’s cottage located on a peaceful rural farm in Perthshire, the Hayloft is a great conversion combining original character features like wooden beams with high quality modern facilities and deal for family holidays.
Set in the farm courtyard, it’s a comfortable holiday house and ideal for families, especially horse lovers. Originally a berry farm, the fields are now mainly used as grazing for sheep and Hazel’s rescue ponies, which are always keen for a pat and a treat.
Located just outside the small town of Blairgowrie, the Hayloft lies in the heart of rolling countryside with superb views of the Sidlaw Hills and the StrathmoreValley. It’s a really peaceful spot, ideal for relaxing.
The Hayloft has super facilities and is really comfortable. The contemporary open plan kitchen is well equipped and includes a number of welcome touches, including a great selection of herbs, spices and local salad dressings. It’s also the dining area and can seat six. A fantastic raised deck to the rear of the cottage is the perfect sunny spot to enjoy breakfast or even a BBQ!
The comfortable master bedroom is on the ground floor, next to the main bathroom. The second bedroom (and shower room) is upstairs and has two single beds, plus views to the countryside. The lounge is also upstairs, overlooking the courtyard and is well equipped with large flatscreen TV/DVD (a range of DVDs are available to borrow) and squashy leather sofas.
The Hayloft is a great place to chill out, or enjoy the superb local golf, fishing, walking, riding, or even cycling. It’s also a handy base for exploring the Angus Glens or even nearby Dundee. The friendly owners live across the courtyard and have loads of advice on local things to see and do. Hazel offers a range of therapies to help you relax to the max! (These need to be booked in advance)
There is superb walking available, both from the farm and further afield, with routes to suit all abilities. A well-established and popular Angus walking festival takes place locally each spring.
Visit Kirriemuir, birthplace of J.M. Barrie (creator of Peter Pan) and the atmospheric gateway town to the nearby scenic Angus Glens.
The City of Dundee is also close at hand with its many attractions, including the award-winning Discovery Point – step on board Captain Scott’s RRS Discovery and learn all about polar exploration.
Explore the stunning 17th Century Glamis Castle, arguably one ofScotland’s finest castles and well worth a visit.
Enjoy a day fishing on one of the local rivers. The nearby river Ericht is famous for its salmon and is popular with anglers; the spectacular Tay is not far away, permits and advice are close at hand.
Try a few rounds at the one of local golf courses: Blairgowrie, Strathmore, Alyth or Glenisla.
In the summer, why not spend the afternoon picking your own raspberries? The local area has been the berry producing capital of Scotlandfor years. Ask Hazel for the lowdown on the best local farm.
In winter take a trip to Glenshee for some skiing or boarding. It’s only 45 mins away and, when conditions are good, it’s the most extensive snowsports area in Scotland.
