Sitting in a lovely quiet spot, just a mile west of the village of Fortingall, Croftgarrow Steading is a large two-bedroom property sleeping 4, all on one level in large grounds with uninterrupted views to the surrounding valleys and hills.
Forming part of a pretty farm conversion in rural Perthshire, Croftgarrow Steading was converted from an ancient stone building to a beautiful, contemporary home in 2008.
The house consists of one double and one twin bedroom, each with a large luxurious bathroom including double shower, double-ended bath, heated mirror and towel rail.
The rest of the property is then taken up with the main living space: a vast open-plan area containing the farmhouse kitchen, dining space and plenty of seating areas. A large wood burning stove forms the centre piece to this space and double glass doors to the east and south lead out to the private garden with a hot tub, via a lovely furnished verandah. The back drop to the garden is open fields and hills with wonderful views wherever you look.
A great deal of time and effort has gone into creating this fabulous house and we are confident that the attention to detail will ensure that our guests will have a truly luxurious experience in a house that certainly has the ‘wow’ factor. Our aim is for all our guests to feel special and very spoilt from the moment they arrive.
The chances are you may feel you never want to leave the house! But, if you do decide to get out and about and do some exploring, there is an endless list of activities on offer in the area, together with countless tourist attractions and places of interest to visit. This area of Highland Perthshire is full of history, stunning scenery and all the walking and climbing you could possibly ask for - from a gentle stroll to Munro bagging, and it is all on the doorstep at Croftgarrow Steading.
