About the property

The Wee Hoose: Probably Scotland's Smallest Holiday Home

The Wee Hoose is a one bedroom terraced cottage in a small lane off Calender's Main street and near the central town square. Its a converted workshop and has been refurbished in 2013 to a very high standard, yet retains some original features such as the exposed stone walls in the lounge. The accommodation consists of entrance hall, open plan lounge and kitchen, double bedroom and shower room with WC. There is gas central heating and the heating as well as electricity is included in the rental. The kitchen is fully equipped with full size oven, ceramic hob, washing machine, microwave, toaster and kettle. There is a 24 ' wall mounted TV screen with integrated DVD player in the lounge; free WiFi internet access; the lounge also has a recliner sofa, a fold out dining table and a coffee table. The bedroom has a double bed and build in wardrobe as well as a chest of drawers for storage. Shower room is equipped with an electric shower, a sink and a WC. All bedlinen and towels will be provided.

Please note the property has no garden; however, within a 5 min walk you are at the river Teith which is ideal for strolling along or just having a picnic. There are many beautiful walks around Callander and plenty of things to do. Callander is an ideal base from which to explore the central region of Scotland. Callander is situated within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Both Glasgow and Edinburgh are about an hours drive by car. The city of Stirling in the heart of Scotland is about 30 min away by car.

Please note the Wee Hoose does exactly do what it says on the tin: due to its size its best suited to a couple or single traveller; a travel cot can be provided upon request.

Love this cosy little hoose !

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our third stay in a year and can't recommend it highly enough !

Visiting friends in Killin but wanting our own space this place fits the bill.

Roomy bedroom with comfy bed, lovely spacious shower room and a super cosy lounge/dinner/kitchen.

Well equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay.

Small problem with a cooker knob on the last visit which was quickly and efficiently solved by the lovely owner Matthias.

Looking forward to our next visit and would recommend the wee hoose to anyone wanting a good clean base for exploring Perthshire, the Highlands and the Islands. 5* all the way.

Comfortable Wee Hoose, central location and suits couples for short stays

  • 4 of 5

It was as advertised, a Wee Hoose. Good use of available space though but only for a short time. Biggest issue for us was the lack of dedicated car park - for checking in and out in particular. Especially in the summer when getting a park anywhere nearby is impossible. Comfortable bed and couch, good pressure shower and hot water and strong wifi. Freezer needs defrosting and mini-vac emptying and a clothes drying area or drier would be great. But perfect for a couple of nights.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us, guys, and thanks for your suggestions; the freezer issue is resolved; clothes drying area is difficult as the wee hoose does exactly what is says on the tin: it is small! There is a washing machine, and there is a collapsible clothes drying rack in the cupboard in the bedroom. Hope to welcome you again some time in the future, Best regards, Matt

Very cute, very clean and a great wee place to enjoy the delights of Callander.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described, and we had a wonderful weekend (other than a little issue with the toilet which was resolved) and Matt generously compensated us for the inconvenience. We will hopefully be booking The Wee Hoose again soon 🏡

lovely wee homely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I both loved this wee place.

Best sleep the two of us have had in a long time.

Very comfy and cosy, with every need available for our stay.

Would 100% recommend for parents needing a break away, or anyone else.

Would we visit and stay here again? Of course we would,

Thanks Matt
