A Perfect Escape to a Beautiful Cottage
Fantastic a great central location for exploring Scotland.
This stay was as close to perfect as you can get
This was our second winter visit to Ballingall Cottage and we enjoyed it as much as our first one, two years ago.
The cottage is a true gem. Comfortable in every way, well decorated and spotlessly clean it really is a home away from home. The sitting room has a very effective log burner which coupled with the central heating makes it very cosy.
The kitchen was big and well equipped. It would sit six without feeling overcrowded. And the bedrooms, well let’s just say we slept very well indeed
We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.
It snowed quite a bit while we were there and that cut down thr amount of walking we would normally do but it was very easy to just relax and watch the snowflakes fall..
There are lots of eating places near by and a really good supermarket about 2 miles away.
Visit number three will not be long in coming.
Excellent family cottage
I went with my wife, mother and baby (3 months old ). We were concerned about taking the baby to a new house and the facilities and heating etc but there was no need. The house was excellently equipped and we cooked most nights using local produce. The butchers in Kinross is very good. The house was warm and the log fire a lovely touch. For a two bed cottage the space in all of the rooms particularly the lounge was brilliant especially considering the vast amount of baby items we brought with us. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would recommend to all.
On a side note we left a few items and Kate was more than happy to post them back to us something we were very grateful for.
A lovely and relaxing stay
My sister and I wanted to bring our mother out of Germany for the first time (over 80 but still fit). After checking several locations we found this nice cottage. We stayed for 10 days and didn't regret it one bit. First the central location. You are near but not to near a motorway and other streets which can bring you everywhere in Southern Scotland in around 1 hour. We took for example a visit to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and a few other historical buildings. If you mainly use the Kitchen instead going to eat outhouse, several supermarkets (Kinross) and stores in direction of Edinburgh are available. Second the Cottage itself. I can only speak for us, but we felt directly at home. The livingroom was cozy, the beds really comfortable, the kitchen nice and convient. The Bathroom was suitable and everything was clean. The garden-furnishings could need a little love but with nice cushions and Tablecloth this wasnt really an issue.
Of course there were signs of usage but this didn't really bother in the overall impression. Since the fields begin directly behind the cottage I was waked up a few times by pheasants directly before the roomwindow. As a city peron I found this really relaxing. The Internet was good for the location so normal surfing isnt an issue. Even Netflix is possible (like on Rainy days) if someone isnt bothered by the lowest quality/ small lagging and nothing interesting is on the normal television. The Landlords are really nice and helpful. If we noticed something they helped or provided it on a shortcall when possible. (Things like a bathmat, or explaining things).
The cat and dog they have are also really friendly an greet everyone when the are out in the yard.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay there and it is not unlikly that we visit there a second time.
Ballingall cottage is a lovely place in great surroundings, Kate is a great host and we have a fantastic week there, would highly recommend!
A lovely peaceful setting
Kate and her family were extremely welcoming and helpful. The cottage was very comfortable and a great base for a relaxing family holiday.
