Guestbook comments from the owner

Just found a spare moment to thank you for a wonderful stay in your cottage. I have been meaning to drop you a few lines but have had a very busy time work wise.

Although I was working whilst I was there it was very much a home from home. My wife and grandson also enjoyed there stay there, it's such a lovely cosy cottage and you have thought of everything for people to stay there. It may be a while before I come back that way, but I'm sure we would like to book the cottage with you again.

Charming cottage in a centrally located village

  • 5 of 5

Wyncroft Cottage is a well maintained home situated in the central part of Scotland, making day trips to various locations possible. The cottage contains all the luxuries of home and many vintage details.

Elspeth met us on the first day and helped us familiarize ourselves with the house and local area attractions. This was very helpful, as were all of the take-away menus, maps, and brochures for area entertainment. Elspeth's help didn't end here either. Anytime we had questions she readily supplied answers for us.

Walk out the front door and look down the street, many beautiful homes all around. We walked to some of the local paths (Bluebell Trail) and to the town center. Walking to town and to the local stores and pubs allowed us to meet many Blairgowrie residents, which helped to make this trip very special. The weather was perfect for evening strolls to town or to just sit outside in the garden with a cup of tea or glass of wine. This was our 25th wedding anniversary and it was perfect. If we did it again, we would rent this cottage.

Owner's Response: We were very privileged to welcome our recents guests to Wyncroft on a special trip to celebrate their 25th anniversary and thank them for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review which really gives a flavour of all that the cottage and the area has to offer. Scotland in May is often very special and the lovely weather certainly allowed the garden to be enjoyed to the full, especially the new lower garden seating area. We work hard to present Wyncroft as well as possible and are pleased that this is appreciated by our guests.

Great cottage, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in a very cosy cottage. Plenty of room for the 4 of us, and all the facilities you could need. Ideally situated on the outskirts of Blairgowrie, and only 20 miles from Glenshee.

Owner's Response: As advertised, the cottage sleeps 4 in comfort and is welcoming and very well equipped. The situation is quiet but in easy reach of all main routes out of the town and with supermarkets and so on close by. The ski slopes and ski hire are within easy reach, and the town offers all sorts of shopping and dining options for self catering.

Again a nice stay in a nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

Once again we enjoyed our holiday at Wyncroft very much.

As we´ve had it last year the house was nice and cosy, clean and spacoius. Actually we can only repeat our positive review: There is everything for a comfortable stay. Situated in a quiet street in a small and pretty town it is ideal for exploring the nearer landscape.

We once again had a realy good contact with the friendly owner, - and we definitely recommend it highly, for the second time!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Blairgowrie for the Highland games and stayed in this perfectly situated gem of a cottage. The property was wonderfully clean and had everything you would need for a stress free holiday.

The owner popped round on the first day to check we had settled in, which was a lovely gesture. She advised us on some fabulous dog walking tracks and helped us to understand the area.

We will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased to read that the cottage lived up to expectations - and more! Blairgowrie is a great holiday destination in September when there are lots of events going on and the weather is often really lovely. Thanks for confirming that the cottage is a comfortable base for a busy stay. It is always nice to meet our guests and their dogs (who are really spoilt for choice when it comes to walks!).

A really lovely cosy comfortable wee cottage

  • 4 of 5

Just home from a lovely Easter break in this cottage. It was really comfortable and clean and was the ideal base for a relaxing break. The kitchen was very well stocked with crockery, cooking utensils etc and it was lovely to arrive and find the basics in foodstuffs waiting including shortbread and an Easter Egg for my grandson. Elspeth came round to say hello on our first night and was very friendly. Blairgowrie is a lovely town and the cottage is well within walking distance to the town shops. Elspeth also provided lots of information on things to do in the area. I would happily recommend Wyncroft and am sure that we will return in the future.
