Description

With views over the Grampians, this property makes a perfect base for a romantic retreat.

Set on a Highland estate spanning 4500 acres with hills rising to 2500ft, these four holiday properties are situated on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park with a wild flower reserve nearby, and an abundance of wildlife including ospreys and huge herds of deer. For 300 years Cistercian Monks spent half of each year at this peaceful place, making butter and cheese and brewing beer from the pure springs that continue to feed the houses. Delightful 18th-century Clover Cottage is reached from its parking area via a short track across a stream. With its own large garden with views towards the great massif of the Grampians. Claypotts is a charming 18th-century cottage, is in an utterly peaceful glen at the heart of the estate with its own enclosed garden on the banks of the River Isla. Croft End Cottage, a 15th-century cottage lies secluded behind double hedges and is a romantic yet fabulously comfortable place perfect for explorers, lovers and honeymooners. Brewlands Cottage is a 17th-century, cosy, very comfortable property in a lovely riverside location with fishing from the garden and views of high hills and surrounding quiet countryside. There are ancient wild flower meadows with rare wild yellow violets and orchids. Red squirrels live around the gardens and the walls support rare ferns and lichens which grow only in unpolluted places. Walking from the door of each cottage. Excellent golf courses at St Andrews, Carnoustie, Gleneagles and Rosemount. Glenshee ski resort is 35 minutes, as is Pitlochry with its theatre, restaurants and kilt and cashmere shops. An adventure centre 20 minutes away, with pony trekking at Balmoral Estate and many castles and stately homes to visit: Balmoral, Glamis, Blair Atholl, Scone Palace and Braemar. Visit the famous Whisky Trail. Riding centre 6 miles. The oldest tree in Europe is in Fortingall, 1 hour. Shops 12 miles, pub 2 miles.

Spacious beamed living/dining room with cast-iron wood-burning stove. Well-equipped, modern farmhouse-style kitchen. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Open-tread, spiral stairs to first floor: Galleried double bedroom with 5ft bed and beams overlooking living room.

    Been home 2 weeks and already booked up for next year, lovely cottage set on its own, very peaceful, amazing walks from the front door. The hot tub is a great addition and the wood burner makes it feel homely.

    Clover Cottage was the perfect holiday retreat for us and our two Italian Spinones! The champagne and fresh cheese scones on arrival was a perfect welcome. This cottage is not tiny, it's cosy, romantic, secluded and peaceful. The hot tub was a real bonus with fab views. We enjoyed fly fishing in the loch with Chris and a hugely enjoyable and informative nature stalk with Craig. Avoid Perth but Braemar and Kirriemuir are well worth a visit. Don't drive by the Glenisla Hotel, it may look unimpressive externally but the welcome, beer and food are worth pulling in for and it's dog friendly. Our only points for improvement would be to create a patio for eating outdoors and to stock the loch with more fish for a more fruitful angling experience!

    Unfortunately, this is not a 5 star property as advertised. First of all, it is not a one-bedroom cottage - it is a studio with a bed on a galleried landing - it is really tiny. Secondly, in terms of general appearance, the décor is getting very tired and needs to be repainted; some of the kitchen units have doors peeling at the edges, there is mould in places on the bathroom ceiling and rust on the shower rail. Also we found the bathroom floor had not been properly cleaned. It is therefore, for the space available and the general condition, poor value for money. However, our main niggle was the extortionate cost of electricity which is added to the rental price. They are currently charging 21p per unit when most people at home will be paying around 11 p. We noticed that one previous guest paid nearly £130 in electricity and logs! (We have not paid for electricity separately at any holiday cottage for over 20 years.) So only stay here if you want a small cottage with a hot tub. Otherwise I'm sure you will find better value for money in a scenic location elsewhere.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments: it is always so helpful to receive both good and bad to allow us to improve our offering to you. We are very sorry that you did not like Clover Cottage. Most of our guests love it which is why so much of our business is repeat bookings. You say that it is not what you expected. There are lots of photos of this cottage on the Cottages.com / Scottish Country Cottages website and they are up to date so they do give a true reflection of what the cottage is like. You are right that the decoration was becoming a little tired but we are pleased to report that the cottage was completely redecorated at the end of May 2016. The guests prior to you had broken the oven door which heat-damaged the unit immediately beside it but a brand new Neff oven has been installed. The £130 you refer to for electricity and logs was not for one week but for a 3.5 week let, in the winter, with the hot tub on 24/7 in sub-zero temperatures. Sadly we cannot get electricity for 11p; in common with a lot of other rural areas like Devon, Cornwall and most of the rest of the Scottish Highlands we are charged a lot more than urban areas. Although we are surrounded by trees, seasoned logs mean ordering in. If guests do not want to buy from us they can of course buy from the local Tesco or elsewhere.

    We spent a week at Clover Cottage at the beginning of April. The scenery was idyllic. The cottage was cosy and romantic....so much so, we've booked to go again in September to celebrate my 50th birthday. Simon, the Estates Manager, couldn't have been more helpful. We would have no hesitation recommending Clover Cottage to anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life!

    This cottage is nestled in rural Scotland with local walks, two lakes and a good pub within walking distance. We had been looking to go to this property for some time and it was not until we opened the door that we were disappointed. The property appears to be a victim of its own success and is a little tired. Electricity is charged at 21p per unit,12 March 16 and is payable by cash or cheque.

    The wifi was not working and paying cash for the logs and electricity was inconvenient. Far better to put up the initial cost. Otherwise a stunning cottage. Location, perfect. Hot tub, perfect. Resident red squirrel, perfect. Plus Simon, was extremely helpful. Such a charming little haven of tranquility in the picturesque woods.

    One of the best holiday I have ever had, bar none. Its the most perfect location and such a lovely little cottage. If you like beauty, wildlife, walks and getting back in touch with whats really important in life - this is the perfect place.

    We absolutely loved our stay, the area was so quiet with some amazing views. Quite out of the way but definitely worth it. We did almost miss the entrance on arrival though, a roadside marker would have been a bit easier to spot. Simon and the ladies assisting him couldn't have been more helpful, there was a problem with the hot tub and the wi-fi was down but they got straight on it and sorted it as soon as they could. We locked ourselves out one night, walked round to the farm house where the caretakers were more than happy to do everything they could to get us back in, they were just so good about such an inconvenience. The cottage was clean, tidy and a pleasure to stay in. The leaflets and flyers provided were a staple for what we decided to do during our stay. All round it was a great stay and we're considering returning next year with our daughter. Thanks so much!
