For a unique experience, look no further than this Visit Scotland ‘4 star’ standard former Scottish longhouse. The cottage has won an award for its conservation of original features which now combine with a contemporary twist to provide a private countryside retreat, far from the stress of everyday life. Set within the grounds of Tullibole Castle which dates back to the 17th century - tours can be arranged with the owner on request. The beamed living/dining room has wooden floors, exposed stone work and a comfortable sofa to watch the Freeview TV in front of the wood-burning stove. The spacious bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with beams and en-suite bathroom with large walk-in shower.The wonderful conservatory, with its two glass walls, is ideal to enjoy an evening meal, whilst looking out towards the Ochil and Cleish Hills. The large enclosed garden is superb for long sunny days, and the strutting peacocks who share it with you will keep you entertained for hours. Explore the peace of the surrounding woodland and see if you can glimpse the kingfisher and heron that sometimes fish in the 16th-century castle moat. For that truly magical moment, meals can be taken in the castle by arrangement. Afterward, make your way back to your idyllic hideaway, detour past the 18th-century dovecote before meandering through the charming maze which has been created as a memorial to the witches who met their fate at the Crook of Devon Witch Trials. If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic location then golf lovers can enjoy a round or two at Gleneagles, Muckhart or Kinross. History, culture and the ultimate shopping experience awaits in Edinburgh, less than an hour away, as are St Andrews and Stirling. A 25-minute walk leads to the village (local shops and pub food).
