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.
Every home comfort provided. Heating was on when we arrived so nice and warm inside out of the cold outside. Met the owner when she came round to see if everything was OK. Very friendly and gave us helpful local information.
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.
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.
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!

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!
Nice house in a nice area to stay. we had no Issues with the house, all was as expected. Shop's where not far away.
Our highlight were our visits at Dunnottar Castle, the Falkirk wheel and of course Edinburgh.
