Luxury Romantic Getaway
Thimblewynd holiday rental has been described as one of the "best in Scotland with hot tub" (The Scotsman Newspaper).
Born in 1860, Thimblewynd is a C-Listed period cottage found in the historic village of Dunning, Perthshire. Thimblewynd has grown into a luxury romantic hideaway with plenty of benefits.
Secluded Hot tub experience? Yes. Log Burner? Yes. Gastropub on the corner? Yes. Village shop at the bottom of the street? Yes that as well.
We are chuffed to have Thimblewynd in our lives and are delighted to share it with you.
It's a place that just feels right and a huge investment has been taken to ensure it has everything a couple may need to enjoy a special time together (hot tub, log fire, smart tv, wifi, record player, board games...)
Reviews show that while guests enjoy a real sense of seclusion and getting away from it all, they also enjoy all the amenities of our village location. The local shop is incredibly well stocked and perfectly situated should you have forgotten to bring an everyday (or romantic) essential.
What is particularly unique is our secluded walled garden. In the sunshine you can enjoy the hammock and bbq. In Scotland we all know you can't guarantee the weather, so we have installed covered areas to let you enjoy the space no matter what. The hot tub remains uncovered to let you star gaze together. It's pretty special.
Inside, it continues to be about luxury and being together. The kitchen is fully equipped. The living space is cosy and full of stuff to do. Wifi (obviously), board games, books, a vinyl record player with LPs (or bring your own) and Smart TV (easily link to your netflix or amazon prime account). The log burner is always a hit. Upstairs you find the large bedroom, with king-size brass bed, shuttered windows and a beautiful view. The ensuite bathroom includes a drench shower, towels, robes and organic bath products.

About Maggie Moore
The Thimblewynd Story. Thimblewynd was created by Maggie and Adam as a space to relax and get away from it all. A space for a couple to be together. As busy parents they didn't always fancy the formality of a hotel and found the average 'minimum 3 night stay policy' with a holiday-let too constraining (who has a babysitter that generous?)
Maggie Moore purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Maggie Moore chose Dunning
The real magic of the place hasn't just been what has been added to Thimblewynd to get it right on the inside. It is also about what is to be found in Dunning itself. Step outside and you are moments away from beautiful walks, wild swimming, fields and forests full of nature (Thimblewynd even has a returning housemartin family that lives in the adjoining vennel). The local pub on the corner (The Kirkstyle) is warm, inviting, does amazing food and live music. Another pub close by has regular open night jamming sessions. And when you return at the end of an evening, find yourself stargazing from the hot tub, with a log fire waiting in the living room you'll probably think it's been time well spent. And that should be the end of the story... But it's not, in the morning when you wake, after a luxurious drench shower and perhaps another dip in the hot tub what could be better than the best all day breakfast waiting for you at the local golf club. This, however, is just one story. Each guest at Thimblewynd will create their own....

fantastic house and garden.
We had a fantastic 3 day stay here. Everything is perfect, from the garden to all the facilities in house. We have stayed in a lot of properties, but this place is special. Hot tub was fantastic as was the record player and vinyls ! The garden is out of this world- an outdoor extension to the house - everything has been lovingly thought of. The walk across from the house was lovely for our dog too. Cant recommend this place enough
Beautiful cottage, has everything you could wish for and more,so comfortable, we felt at home as soon as we walked through the door, we will definatly be back.
Wow - would give 6 stars!
Fantastic cottage, beautifully furnished to such high spec throughout right down to fluffy robes! We had everything we could need - and more - to make the best of a few days relaxation. The garden is beautiful and secluded; hard to believe you're surrounded by houses. The village is lovely too, had a friendly welcome at both pubs. We can't wait to go back!
We have just had a wonderful stay in Thimblewynd Cottage. Beautiful cottage which mixes old and new features. The cottage also has an amazing garden, which the photographs don't do justice to. Would love to return.
Beautiful, little getaway .
Myself and my wife wanted a few romantic nights away.The cottage was beautiful and the pictures don't do it justice, the back garden is beautiful and secluded, you wouldn't know you were in a town, quiet and peaceful with no on overlooking it and the icing on the cake was the hot tub. To sum it up, a perfect few nights away in a perfect little cottage.
PS. Thanks Maggie you couldn't have been more helpful. Hopefully we will be down again.
Quaint, cosy, with secret garden
The property is set in the quaint village of Dunning. There is a local shop and pub that serves good food.
Inside the property feels cosy and peaceful and in the evening you can light a log fire. The owners have paid great attention to detail with lots of little additions around the house and garden for you to discover.
The secluded garden is an interesting space to relax and probably makes the property. Of course there is also the hot tub too.
It's a great space for a couple to get away, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will likely return in the future.
