Cosy cottage for 2 in the countryside near the village of Abernyte, close to the city of Dundee, Scotland. On site facilities include shared games room and tennis court with summerhouse.
This detached cottage can sleep 2 in a king size bed. It offers cosy fire side comfort with its open fire and wi-fi. For the warmer months it has a large patio and grassy area on which to relax. It faces south and west. Located in rural Perthshire but within 20 minutes of Perth or Dundee city centres. The cottage is small as it sleeps only 2. The front door takes you into the sitting room with its open fire. All other rooms are off the sitting room. The kitchen has a solid Ercol table for dining, this can be moved through to the sitting room for fireside dining. The bathroom has a bath with an electric shower over the top of it. The bedroom has a king size bed. Outside you have a large patio area and garden furniture. There is a gravel driveway and some grass where you can dine under the pine tree and watch the sun go down as it is west facing.
We have a summer house above the tennis court with great views to the east and Honeysuckle guests are encouraged to use it so that they can fully appreciate the panoramic views on offer on site. All guests are able to have shared use of this summer house, tennis court and games room . We have a list too of walks in the area, many starting from the farm itself. The surrounding garden area around Honeysuckle, Pitmiddle and Outfield is not fenced – so pet owners need to be aware of that – you cannot let your pet out unattended. The properties are on a very small farm accessed via a farm road.
We have tried to be as environmentally friendly as we can with our holiday houses. In Honeysuckle we have reclaimed flooring and an open fire. Our water supply comes off the hill and is filtered in our water treatment area before going to the houses. All our fixtures and fittings are sourced locally.
In order to increase our green credentials even more we are now excited to announce that in 2014 we put up a small 18 m wind turbine on the hill behind the holiday houses. It is only an 11 kw turbine but we hope that after its first year we will have generated enough kw hours to cover our on site electrical needs. You can see the turbine from Honeysuckle.
Meals: If you wish to order a meal for your first night or indeed for any of the days you are with us please contact me and I can put you in touch with our recommended cook.
Changeover day is a Friday or Monday where possible in July and August and we are more flexible outwith this period. Flooring is wooden throughout, with rugs. Heaters are wall mounted. Private water supply which goes through a high tech filter system although bottled water is available free of charge if preferred – it is recommended for anyone with low immunity. Cottage is detached and located on a farm with other properties close by. Owners live on site. We now have a small wind turbine (as of March 2014) on the hill above Honeysuckle. It can clearly be seen from the patio.
On site we have 3 properties, all with wi-fi in the living areas. The “L” shaped steading building behind Honeysuckle can be 1 large 5 bedroom property or 2 smaller 2 and 3 bedroom properties. In total we can accommodate 12 guests in the 3 cottages.
