The perfect location in which to relax, unwind and enjoy the views or stroll through the garden, where peacocks may wander.

    Brilliant home for a mini break with the dog! 6 adults and a black lab had a fantastic time. Home is huge, plenty of space that you are not on top of each other. Great view over the pond in front of house, hot tub and wood burning stove. Whats not to like?

    Cairns is a gorgeous house set in its own ground with a wee fishing pond in front. We visited in January so the pond was frozen which added to its charm albeit you couldn't fish but we weren't looking for that. House is really spacious and warm. No en-suites but two spacious cracking bathrooms with great showers and a huge mains pressure hot water cylinder so never an issue. We had a party of 5 adults and you never felt you were in each other's space - or using each other's hot water! The hot tub is great. It isn't covered but for us that was a plus as we were able to sit out under a starry sky and get an astronomy lesson. It also offers great views across to the Sidlaws during the day. We had a problem with the hot tub on the first evening but the owner was quick to resolve the issue. We used the open fire one night but to be honest the house is so warm it wasn't necessary but we just did it for the pleasure of sitting in front of the open fire. If we had small gripes they would be that there isn't a jug for water or juice; for a three night stay we wouldn't expect to run out of toilet paper after 1 day; we couldn't find matches to light the fire; there were no dish-washer tabs available (fortunately one of us thought to bring a few) but these are small things and you could argue that since it is self-catering we should have brought our own. Overall we thought Cairns was fabulous and if we don't come again it will be because we tend to look for somewhere new each time rather than be any comment on Cairns.

    had a great time staying well equipped only downsides were the smell in the passage of the septic tank and no shelter over the hot tub overall would stay again
