Mid Balchandy Cottage (ref SSAB) is an immaculately presented, detached holiday home providing spacious, five star accommodation. Renovated to a high standard and thoughtfully furnished for guests’ comfort and ease, it emanates a wonderful atmosphere in which to relax in an unrivalled setting, with glorious, uninterrupted views of the Strathtay Hills and surrounding Perthshire countryside.
The spacious dining room and living room both benefit from a cosy wood burner, and stunning views can be admired from the window seats. The garden room affords panoramic views and is the perfect place in which to sit and relax - warm and snug in the winter months, or with the French doors open and giving access onto the barbecue deck during the long summer evenings. Surrounded by gently sloping fields and set back from the road up a short drive, there is an abundance of wildlife to be seen from Balchandy Cottage and in the surrounding countryside including pheasants, partridges, rabbits, hares, squirrels, red and roe deer and many species of wild birds.
By prior arrangement with the owner, your stay can be tailored to your needs, the wine cooler can be stocked with a selection of drinks and pre-ordered groceries delivered. A delicious cooked meal can also be waiting and the wood burner lit, ensuring that your holiday exceeds expectations from the start. Towels, bathrobes and slippers are also provided for your comfort.
