Stalker's Lodge is a brand new house positioned in a beautifully scenic 3,000 acre Perthshire estate. It is an excellent 5* property with bright rooms and gorgeous décor.
Accommodation: 3 bedrooms, 1 double, 2 twins (sleeps 6)
A brand new house situated on an exceptionally scenic 3,000 acre Perthshire estate, Stalker’s Lodge is a wonderful holiday property. It’s been built and fitted out to an excellent 5* standard with spacious, light-filled rooms and discerning décor. Modern fabrics and furniture blend perfectly with traditional Scottish themes and solid oak floors. Whether it's the best beds, crisp cotton bedlinen, fluffy towels, built-in wifi music system or the sleek kitchen and bathroom fittings, little expense has been spared to make this an extremely comfortable and luxurious Highland getaway.
The glass-fronted double height extension is a joy, with its wood burning stove, comfortable sofas and glorious views across the rolling fields and strath. The deck outside is perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or reclining on the sun lounger and contemplating the countryside. The sitting/ dining room has a big corner sofa and a second TV, meaning everyone can spread out and do their own thing. The kitchen is designed for social cooking with seating round the island.
The back of the house has a charming patio with furniture and a good sun-trap. The garden is laid to lawn and has ample parking. There’s a burn running down the garden next door so, although the garden is fenced, small children need to be watched. As a working estate, dogs will love the space and freedom but also need to be kept under control.
The property has robust environmental credentials and runs biomass heating from redundant wood felled on the estate.
The estate makes a great holiday destination with inspiring scenery all around, wonderful wildlife and no shortage of activities. The loch is a beautiful focal point and has a boat and an island, perfect for Swallows and Amazon type picnics (buoyancy aids are available but boat and aids are used at holidaymakers own risk). Fishing for wild brown trout is available by request. Children will love biking along the quiet estate road to explore the Walled Garden or the Millennium Wood, a lovely five acre plantation with a network of winding paths, lochens and a secret den. It’s also a great place for letting the dogs run free as it’s securely deer-fenced. There is an all-weather tennis court and a cosy games room (shared with another cottage) equipped with pool table, table tennis and darts - perfect for wet days and evening entertainment.
For wildlife lovers, Red Squirrels visit the feeder most days and you are very likely to encounter Red and Roe Deer while walking around the estate. It is also very good for birders, with a wide variety of lowland and upland species.
Guided nature walks are available on request as well as supervised activities for children such as treasure hunts and pond dipping.
This is beautiful place and a good jumping off point to explore Scotland or for fishing parties. Pitlochry is only 20 minutes away with all its facilities, Braemar 45 minutes and Edinburgh an easy day trip.
The other holiday house – Keeper's Cottage sits close to Stalker's though each house retains great privacy and views. The two houses taken together make a very good option for parties of 10 who can get together in Stalker’s for mealtimes and socialising but also enjoy having their own separate living spaces.
