The Cottar House is a charming, detached, stone built cottage set in beautiful, rolling countryside in the hamlet of Dalguise in rural Perthshire. Dating back to the 18th century, this upside down style home has been tastefully decorated, still maintaining much of its character and charm.
Set in the perfect location for families and couples to spend time together, guests have use of the entire property. External steps lead to the first floor entrance, opening into the well equipped kitchen with modern units and integral appliances. The living/dining room is cosy and welcoming, with a multi-fuel stove, comfortable seating where guests can relax together, and a dining table, where everyone can sit and plan the next day’s activities. There is also a family bathroom on the first floor along with a spacious double bedroom. There are two further spacious bedrooms on the ground floor. All beds have good quality matresses.
With its own private garden, there is space both indoors and outside for everyone to enjoy. The decked terrace, leading off the kitchen, is a lovely spot for al fresco dining and the lawned garden is a great place for children to play. For sun-worshipers there are several sitting-out areas in the garden to enjoy as well a pretty summerhouse with a telescope to enjoy the night sky.
This scenic area of central Scotland has been attracting visitors for hundreds of years and Beatrix Potter spent many holidays in the area, developing her love of nature and wildlife. The Cottar House was occupied by Kitty MacDonald, a laundress according to the census at the time, and thought to be the inspiration for The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. There is an indoor Beatrix Potter themed play snug with soft toys, skittles, books and DVDs to keep younger children happy on days spent indoors.
Perthshire is well known for outdoor pursuits and from the doorstep, there are walks directly out into the countryside and the Tay Forest Park, which has superb mountain bike trails. There are also water sports, golf courses and fishing nearby.
Situated in the perfect location for exploring the local area and beyond, although the property is located in a rural spot, you have easy access to the A9, with Perth, Inverness and Edinburgh all within driving distance. The railway station at Dunkeld has frequent services to Inverness and Aviemore, and you can be in the centre of Edinburgh in just over an hour without the stress of finding parking.
