    Lovely cottage, in a beautiful and peaceful location. Mark (owner) was very kind and helpful. Very well equipped cottage (kitchen especially). Also great that they are pet friendly. The conservatory was a bit cold for sitting in due to the time of year, but I image it would be lovely in summer. I would definitely recommend; I'm sure we'll be back!

    I like it here I've been twice,winter and summer. Stayed 4 days in Jan Feb. This year. Owner is very nice and helpful. Only thing a bit difficult is the parking. Room at cottage for the car but very difficult for turning round if you have a big car. I don't so was ok for me.

    Lovely cottage, but we would not go there in the winter again. The lane up to it got very icy and we came home a day early after a slight thaw with fresh snow as a hard frost was predicted that night. We didn't use the conservatory dining room as it was dark and rather cold.

    A fabulous cottage - super quiet but still handy to walk to the pub in Dunkeld (5 min) All the house amenities you need and a huge back garden. An extended check out time on the Sunday was very much appreciated so thank you. I will be back!

    The Coach House was an ideal for 2 but personally thought any more would be cramped, the location was great for a walk into Dunkeld for an evening meal but a bit to far out if it was raining as we found out. Some great walks right on the door step with the Hermitage Trail being easy accessible on foot from the cottage. The upstairs bedroom was spacious with an adequate bathroom down stairs, The owners were on hand if any problems but respected our Privacy. The only real niggle was the very compact kitchen and the uncomfortable couch. The garden would have been great if we had dry weather with nice table and chairs overlooking the owners big garden.

    We enjoyed our stay at The Coach House this summer and would recommend this cottage to others. The local amenities were excellent and all within walking distance of the cottage. We hope to make a return visit in the future.

    The Coach House is clean, cozy, and compact. An ideal place to escape for a few days. Plenty interesting places to visit within easy driving distance, good location for woodland, riverside or hill walks. May seem at first to be off the beaten track, but we found that a plus. Owned and serviced by a lovely family who are on hand if required, and your privacy respected when not.

    We felt it could cleaner and it felt tired. The sofa not comfortable and oven door would not shut. Difficult parking and not a secure bike store. The web photos flatter the proprty.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you so much for letting us know about these things so we can put them right. We very much hope it didn't spoil your stays. We'll speak to the cleaners about your comments and address any areas that are getting missed. We'll also immediately order new cushions for the sofa. The oven door was repaired immediately and we'll make sure the lock on the bike shed is not left off. Thank you again for the feedback. Perthshire is a beautiful area and we want people to be happy at the cottage and have a wonderful holiday.

    Taking a shower was not easy. This is because the shower head was too close to the large grab rail on the wall. The shower head attachment could not be repositioned either. The sitting room furniture was not comfortable, as the cushions no longer had any support in them! Otherwise all was well!
