Situated in the grounds of Balgersho House, this delightful cottage is surrounded by magnificent scenery and wildlife. Originally built in 1946 for the estate gardener, the cottage has been thoughtfully furnished for guests’ comfort and ease.

    A truly wonderful place to have a holiday. We felt at home in the cottage almost immediately. The location was perfect & relaxing. We were made very much at home by Phillipa. Eggs, tomatoes & carrots were happily received. Visits from the chickens made us smile. All in all, couldn't be recommended enough!

    Our third stay in less than 12 months - rather gives the clue that we like it! Standards are consistently high and the welcome always warm. It is a very quiet location and well situated for visiting the county of Angus and parts of Perthshire as well as Dundee and Fife. Also great place just to sit still and enjoy the location or stroll through the walled garden. Very happy to recommend it - as long as there's the odd week left for me!

    We had a really good holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the cottage. It is an excellent quite holiday cottage set in a safe and relaxing environment. The cottage lacks for nothing and we were made most welcome. There is plenty to do in Perthshire and it has a wonderful countryside.

    Excellent holiday, the cottage is perfect for relaxing and unwinding. Very good amenities, large well kept gardens and a tennis court to round things off. It was like stepping back in time whilst in the tennis court/ garden area, I half expected Hercule Poirot to be wandering around. Definitely will return in the future, fabulous place.

    We have had three great holidays at this cottage now, and will probably visit again. So comfortable and quiet, with everything you could need.

    Perfect for children aged 4+. Amazing huge secluded gardens for them to play safely in, including walled garden, large lawn areas, tennis court, summer house, and hens! Lovely hosts, really welcoming and friendly.

    Balgersho Garden Cottage is an idyllic place to stay. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. It is set in its own private garden and you also have access to the much larger surrounding gardens belonging to Balgersho House, complete with tennis court. It is in a very peaceful location whose only drawback is that you cannot easily walk to any shops or pubs, but you can drive to Coupar Angus or, better, Blairgowrie in just a few minutes. We stayed a week and fully intend to return next year.

    We had stayed at Balgersho Garden Cottage just a few weeks before and sadly had to return to the area for a family funeral. The peace and tranquility of this cottage along with the discreet but supportive attitude of the owners made a difficult time much more bearable. We will be returning under happier circumstances later in the year and are already looking forward to it.

    We loved the cottage and the secluded location - a perfect get away from it all venue. We arrived to a blazing log fire and wine in the fridge - what's not to like? This cottage lives up to the description and photographs on the website and we would be very happy to return there.
