We have a lovely, large modern house in a very rural bit of Scotland, yet only 10 minutes away from a cultural city (Perth) and 45 minutes from Edinburgh and St Andrews.
The house is great for a holiday with accommodation over 3 floors. The ground floor has a garage with electric doors, a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer (as well as outside drying space), an office area and a home gym space with a treadmill. It also has a huge playroom with double doors straight out to the garden area. The playroom has a lot of toys and the outside play area has a sandpit, trampoline, and lots of ride ons. It also has artificial grass making it a brilliant surface for running with no shoes on! The main garden also has a large play frame with slide, swings etc suitable for older children.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one king size with an en-suite (shower) and one bedroom that can be either a king sized or two singles. There is a bathroom with shower over the bath. This is also the main living area with a large kitchen/dining/family room with a TV and DVD and a separate more formal lounge with log burning stove, TV, DVD, Wii.
Upstairs there are 3 more bedrooms, one with a double bed and a daybed, one with a single bed (can be a toddler bed if needed), and the master bedroom with king size bed and en-suite shower. There is also a family bathroom with jacuzzi bath and separate shower.
We also have 5 chickens that are extremely easy to look after. If you don't want to look after them yourself, our neighbours are happy to pop round instead. The house is on a hill up a private track so there's no passing traffic except for the few neighbouring houses, walk out of the door and you're straight into some beautiful countryside with walks literally on your doorstep. On our hill there are horses, sheep, ducks, chickens and donkeys so it's an immediate nature trail!
The area is a brilliant base for a Scottish holiday. Perth, Edinburgh, St Andrews, Stirling, Fife and the Highlands are all within easy reach (less than an hour to all of the above). There are tons of brilliant family places including adventure playgrounds, farms, castles and beaches that we can give you directions to. Perth also has some excellent restaurants, a theatre and a concert hall.
