In its own corner of paradise, this 12-person retreat is ideal for family gatherings and group holidays. Round up your clan and look forward to an adventure to cherish forever.

Whether you are boot-clad and immersed in nature, heading off to Dunkeld (4 miles) for a drink in an atmospheric pub or branching off to explore the bustling streets of Dundee (26 miles) together, returning to this family homestay will be something to relish. Claiming its own private nook overlooking Butterstone Loch and surrounded by rolling lawns and flourishing trees, this spacious property has something for all. Play games with the dogs in the garden, introduce the children to the magical red squirrels who frequent the grounds, and watch the horizon change with the rise and fall of the sun; from breakfast ‘til bedtime, this charming country bolthole pours magic into every moment of the day.

Start your day with drawn-out breakfasts in the kitchen, parcelled around the family-sized breakfast bench with ample seating. The perfect space to cook up homemade repasts throughout the day, you can add a more formal sense of occasion to your meals by switching to the open-plan lounge's dining table which, tucked neatly at one end of the room, is the ideal spot for socialising before kicking back fireside on the sofa. The heart of the home, the lounge is overlooked by attractive open beams and sports warming tones, creating a cheerful yet relaxed vibe. While the adults congregate for the evening, let the kids flee to the snug where ample seating, a wood burner and a TV wait for conspiratorial whispers and movie nights with popcorn. At the end of the day, six equally lovely bedrooms and three bathrooms await across the ground and first floors; treat yourself to a bubble-topped soak in the bath before slipping between crisp sheets and dreaming of tomorrow's adventures.

Venturing outside, children will delight in the garden's open spaces and kids' play area including a trampoline, slide and swing. While away the hours playing games in the sunshine and goofing around with your dogs before grabbing your walking shoes from the utility room and heading out into the countryside. In an area rich in natural beauty, you can take your pick of inspiring walks and go as hard or easy as you please; there are walks of all gradients to suit all abilities, all flaunting incredible scenery. Especially beautiful in autumn, savour walks under rust-coloured leaves and listen out for the gentle crunch of shy roe deer treading through woodland. If you want to take your wheels and head out for the day, enjoy the unlimited car parking at the property upon your return.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely home to stay in-nice layout, welcoming atmosphere, spotless and very well equipped with generous supplies of everything including logs for the wood burners. Beds were all very comfortable and the location was great with Dunkeld and The Hermitage nearby. Everyday we saw an amazing variety of wildlife. Good communications with the owner.

The house is very welcoming, and extremely cosy with log burning stoves. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The grounds of the house look fabulous, especially if planning a summer visit.

The accommodation was perfect for our family, with enough rooms for each family with small children (three under the age of 3yrs) to have their own space but come together. Beautiful large living room for us all to gather, and a lovely cosy sitting room where the toddlers could play safely. Two wood burning stoves gave us ample warmth and the largeRead more family bathroom meant our little ones could share a bath together. The garden was beautiful, with lovely views over the river Tay, the added childrens play area was really appreciated by our family, where they all had so much fun. Wild life on the doorstep was there to see, with our daily encounters of red squirrels, pheasants, partridge and red deer. A wonderful mature woodland on the doorstep and magnificent countryside to explore. A truly wonderful location! Hide

Our party comprised 7 adults, two small children, an infant and 2 dogs. The cottage accommodated us perfectly with plenty of room for all. The layout is good with the bedrooms away from the communal areas. Up to two dogs are welcome, which was key for us, and dog rules (keep them out of the carpeted areas, including bedrooms) are easy to comply witRead moreh. The place was spotless, ready for our holiday. There are outdoor play areas with swings and trampoline, barbecue and a drinks fridge in the summer house. And if the weather is inclement (we had a thunderstorm) there is plenty room for indoor cooking and eating and a selection of board and card games to keep children and adults amused. The scenery is beautiful, it's peaceful and a haven for wildlife - we watched red squirrels, jays and a nuthatch amongst more common birds visiting the feeding post in front of the house. There are nearby nature trails and wilder walks. This is a great place for a family get-together and a fantastic base for walking, fishing or just chilling. Hide

My family and I recently stayed at this cottage set in the most beautiful countryside. I found cottages and castles extremely professional and very helpful in managing my booking.

Three generations oRead moref my family stayed in the cottage and they all had a super time a lot of thought has went into this cottage to make it a home from home, we have stayed in other cottages over the years but this is by far the best and cleanest we have had the pleasure of staying in. The garden was thoroughly enjoyed by all young and not so old and we loved seeing the red squirrels that came into the garden and the deer literally standng at the garden fence. So a massive thank you to all involved and especially the very lovely lady who looks after the cottage for the owner she very kindly contacted me to let me know that we had left a few items behind and kindly arranged to return them to us. We will definitely be back next year Hide
