Nestled in the riverside town of Blairgowrie resting south of the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland is this wonderful four-bedroom terraced cottage, George Cottage.
Boasting a surprisingly spacious interior, this property features beautiful period furniture and style, along with ground-floor living, offering a perfect base for a large family or group of friends.
Enter from the street into the bright red front door and discover the first ground-floor bedroom to your left, an elegant double bedroom with a rich timber sleigh bed to settle in at the end of the day.
On the opposite side is the charming sitting room where plush seating presents a snug spot to relax, with a traditional woodburning stove to warm you on a winter night while a film on TV plays.
Continue down the hall past the antique dresser and find the second ground-floor bedroom to the right with twin beds, served by the ground-floor shower room here too, with a heated rail to keep your towel warm after a refreshing shower!
Tuck into a hearty breakfast within the homely kitchen/diner, gathering around the country-style dining table and chairs and making use of the excellent range of appliances here in the fitted kitchen.
From here you can step outside into the lovely courtyard where a table and chairs provide the perfect spot to relax with a morning coffee, with a shared green lawn space accessed by passing some of the neighbouring gardens too.
Head upstairs to find the final two bedrooms, with another twin, this one with accents of yellow to brighten your day, and a further double with pretty floral bedding, served by a bathroom where you can wind down with a long soak in the tub after a busy day.
