About Andrea Cox

We are a family of 5. I am a teacher, my husband is a Director at Landrover Experience Scotland and we have 3 grown up children. We have lived in Dunkeld since 1997 and just love living in such a beautiful part of Highland Perthshire.

Andrea Cox purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Andrea Cox chose Dunkeld

The cottage is next door to us and we completely renovated it by taking it back to the 4 stone walls and starting again. It is now a modern, cosy cottage with all mod cons and wonderful views over the beautiful countryside. My husband was born and lived in this area until he was 18 and it was lovely returning to the area to live as a family in 1997.

What makes this cottage unique

The scenery and absolute peace and quiet while watching and listening to the wildlife around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful, delightful, wonderful and all the other "ful's" too. A gem wedged in between the heather and the hills. Visited on a work activity but would not hesitate to return with the family. Thanks.

Lovey cozy cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had lovey time staying here. We got a friendly welcome from the owners, we did not need to contact them as the cottage is well equipped. The garden was nice and leads into a good walk. The kids loved it, we had deer come close to the cottage a couple of times, they also liked to spot birds of prey, red squirrels etc.

It is a great location to explore all the wonderful sights, and great walks.

We would definitely recommend the cottage and stay here again if we are in the area.

Many thanks

A wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at Little Puddockwells (the name itself was enough to come for!) and particularly loved the wildlife that came past our doorstep including a doe with her fawn, a hare and a red squirrel. It was very peaceful and although the weather was mixed it was never a problem. We really enjoyed being so close to Loch of the Lowes wildlife reserve and after an initial visit during the day, spent most of our evenings and a very beautiful early morning there watching the ospreys, red squirrels and beavers. The smoked salmon from Dunkeld was utterly delicious and we enjoyed other lovely coffees and lunches in Dunkeld. Thank you for a very lovely time in a very beautiful place!

Little Puddockwells is situated 4 miles from the beautiful Cathedral town of Dunkeld in Highland Perthshire. Dunkeld sits on the banks of the River Tay opposite the Victorian village of Birnam. They are linked by the magnificent Telford Bridge which was built in 1809. Dunkeld has a wonderful selection of independent shops, galleries, bars and restaurants. Birnam has much to offer too. Beatrix Potter spent many childhood holidays along the banks of the River Tay and there is a garden and exhibition devoted to her. You can also visit the majestic Birnam Oak of Shakespeare's play 'Macbeth'. 2 miles away from Little Puddockwells lies the Loch of Lowes, the Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve where the ospreys are on full view along with Great Crested Grebe and otters. Edinburgh and Glasgow are about 1.5 hours away, Inverness 2 hours away and Perth only 25 min away. The House of Bruar (Harrods of Scotland!) is just 40 min away with wonderful shopping, waterfall and restaurant.

Golf: There are 40 golf courses in Perthshire.

The nearest ones are:

Dunkeld and Birnam 18 hole golf course, offering great golf with the most amazing views. Very welcoming to all visitors or just come along for a drink or sample their great food.

Blairgowrie- 2 championship courses (Rosemount and Lansdowne) plus the 9 hole Wee Course.

Other golf courses can be visited at Pitlochry, Crieff, Comrie, Alyth, Perth, Aberfeldy, Blair Atholl, Taymouth Castle (Kenmore) and of course at Gleneagles which is only 45 min away.

Ski: Scotland has five ski centres. Glenshee is 45 min away, Cairngorm is 1.25 h away and the Lecht is 1 hr 40 min away.

Glenshee Ski Centre offers the UK's most extensive skiing and snowboarding facilities. Glenshee's impressive 21 lifts and 36 runs offer an amazing diversity of natural terrain for all standards of skiers and snowboarders.

CairnGorm Mountain has a reputation as one of the most beautiful and sometimes challenging places to ski in the UK, as well as boasting Scotland's only funicular railway. It is located just a short distance from the main A9 arterial route which runs between Perth and Inverness. It has 12 lifts and 22 runs for all abilities.

The Lecht is smaller but offers some of the most consistent snow in Scotland, especially as there is also a facility for snow-making. It occupies a stunning location in the eastern Cairngorms and is accessed from one of the most scenically beautiful roads in Scotland, the A939. There are 18 runs.
