Wouldn't hesitate to stay again! The property is a self contained apartment adjoining the host's home and overlooks their garden which may be a factor for couples looking for complete privacy, but we never felt any intrusion and the double height floor to ceiling windows make for some stunning views from the bedroom mezzanine level.

Comfortable beds, more towels than we could possibly use (a usual bug bear), really well equipped kitchen and a lovely welcome from Alison, who was on hand should be need her. The location close to the beautiful Gleneagles hotel is just perfect. We'd recommend afternoon tea in the main hotel, Scottish breakfast at the clubhouse and dinner at Deseo. We brought our 5 year old daughter and there is plenty to do with children in the area too. We were spoiled for choice. Plus lots of fun to be had at the house with the hot tub, BBQ hut and cinema room. If we return to the area we'd definitely book this place again.
