About Susan Brown

The Towerview Coach houses are a family run buisiness owned by my parents Geoff and Joyce Brown. I am their daughter Susan. As a family we have stayed in and around Perth all our lifes so know the area really well. I have previously worked in retail, Catering and been working in the hoilday rental business for over 14years. My job is property manager, I am guests first contact when enquiring or booking our Coach houses and will assist in anyway I can. I also make sure that the houses are up to the high standard I myself would expect a holiday cottage to be.

My father is a joiner to trade, he started up his own house building company in 1970 (G.S.Brown Construction Ltd) which is now well established building their reputation on high quality affordable housing. He is the current owner of St.Johnstone Football club here in Perth and was the chairmain for over 25years before handing over the reins to my brother Steven. A new stadium, Mcdermid Park was built and opened in 1987. We highly recommend a lunch in the restaurant opened to the public monday to friday.

On the surrounding land around the coach houses they keep horses, some race horses and some that are used in the newly opened kinfuans stables. The stables have been opened as a charity riding for the disabled (RDA). Private lessons can be taken with all funds going to the charity. We have been delighted with the positive feed back from guests staying at The Coach houses and get great pleasure in seeing the faces of the children and adults with disabled and learning difficulties having such a great experience.

Here at The Towerview Coach houses we want everyone to feel welcome and if there is anything we can do to help assits with during your stay to let us know.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Why Susan Brown chose Perthshire

There was no place like home to set up the holiday homes. Careful thought and attention has been given during renovations. We are forever maintainig the properties and keeping them up to date with everyday essentials. The location, comfort and outstanding archetecture on the B listed properties offers guests a unique stay from any other holiday. As a guest at the coach houses you will be treated like family not a booking reference number like most major holiday agencies. We have a high precentage of guests that return every year which speaks for itself.

What makes this cottage unique

The Unique Benefits in staying at The Towerview Coach houses is the fact the central location offers guest the best of both worlds. Stay in comfort in beautiful scenic coutryside surroundings just 2 miles from the busy city life of Perth and swift access to all major cities whether site seeing or shopping. The added attraction is The Kinfauns stables where guests just have to walk over the courtyard to get to the stables for Riding lessons or a hack. There are walks right on the doorstep of the coach houses including the walk up to The Famous Victoria Folly that has outstanding views over Perthshire, A must See.

As a regular client we would not go anywhere else to stay when visiting the Perth area for family or recreational reasons. The accommodation is always excellently presented, comfortable, well equipped and the location perfect for our needs. Who could ask for anything more?

Another excellent stay @ The Clocktower

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy staying at Towerview in any of the available apartments. This time we were in the Clocktower again and we continue to be more than satisfied with the accommodation, services and location.

We have no hesitation in recommending Towerview as the best self-catering place to stay when visiting the Perth area that we have experienced on our many visits north of the border.

Our holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the clock tower was both relaxing and comfortable it's situated at the rear of a castle but close to all to amenities so your never far away from beautiful scenery and if you like the hustle and bustle of the town it's close enough so our stay at the clock tower was great and recommend it to anyone who likes a bit of peace and quiet but not to far away from the town

We will be back

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute!! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Ideally located beautiful walks arond the area. Loved meeting the foal storm! Can't wait to go back to see how big he gets. Facilities were great, just what we needed for a comfortable stay as a small family! Not too far away from the shops but far enough for a peaceful country getaway! Thank you to everyone and thanks to the ladies at the stables really enjoyed the lesson!

A colleague and I stayed in the Clocktower at Towerview. The setting was gorgeous and really suited our purpose, we both agree we would return individually on family breaks! We had everything we could have needed and the house was very comfortable.
