  • "This was a wonderful property and we really enjoyed our stay."

    A larger fridge would have been useful, as with the high heat we did try to store lots of ice and drinks as well as some food, and it was a bit of a squeeze. But that's a really minor thing and the weather was unusually hot. We loved the wooden flooring, the bed was really comfortable, excellent TV, great space. We particularly liked the sliding doors from the living room to the garden and had these open most of the time, allowing the dog to wander in and out and lie on the patio for an afternoon snooze. The garden is excellent for dog owners and the surrounding forest makes this place a really good private retreat. We found it really nice standing out in the garden on a night after the sun had gone down, staring up at the stars and watching the bats flying around. And the shower was very nice. Some cottages have poor water pressure and the shower can be disappointing, but not this one. it was so powerful it was like having a massage. Overall definitely one of the best holiday cottages that we have stayed in, and one we hope to return to.

  • "This cottage is fantastic."

    Perfect location for exploring Scotland. The cottage is in a really quiet place away from roads and was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. I would recommend it to anyone.

  • "This is an amazing place, the cottage is beautiful and has everything you need!"

    The views…just wow! I’m really missing looking out the sliding doors up the hill! It’s very quiet with only the odd car going past, the garden is secure but If your dog can jump high then you’ll need to keep an eye out for them, one of mine hopped it on the first day but settled afterwards! The garden is perfect for dogs, loads of room for them to run around! The host Tara was very accommodating and friendly, this was our honeymoon and she had given us a card, flowers and a lovely bottle of fizz! Definitely the best holiday we have been on, we will be booking up again!

  • "Great stay fantastic cottage Only thing we would say is the shower was very slow to drain due to the shower trap being blocked with hair, lot of dust under beds."

    Having said that would definitely stay there again.

    A truly secure garden for the dogs - so comfortable and spacious and everything you could need for a happy stay. I have already recomended it to friends and we've been home less than a week!!! I would definitely return x

  • "This cottage was absolutely superb."

    Wonderful location surrounded by woodlands full of wildlife. Our dog Murphy loved the fully enclosed huge garden. Beautifully clean, all the facilities you could wish for. Huge interior, Smart TV and contrary to previous reviews the WiFi worked with no problems. No negatives at all. We will definitely come back.

  • "The Old Laundry is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting."

    It has comfy beds and a great TV with Netflix and Amazon prime. We loved the place and the enclosed garden was great for the dog. We hope to return in the future and visit more of the wonderful Scottish countryside which is easy to access from the cottage.

  • "Beautiful holiday cottage in a peaceful and secluded spot ideally suited for exploring the East coast and beyond, as well as some great walks right on the doorstep."

    We loved the spacious lounge with its large doors bringing the outside in and yet the bedrooms felt cosy and snug. The welcome was extremely friendly and polite but never intrusive. Best of all was the lengths you've gone to to make the place dog friendly. Our two wee cairns absolutely loved it.

  • "This is a wonderful cottage."

    Very well laid out. Everything you could need, very well equipped with good quality furniture and kitchen equipment. So clean and comfortable and completely dog friendly. Lots of space inside snd in the enclosed garden. Seriously one of the best we’ve stayed in and we will return.

  • "The only thing that I felt the cottage lacked was a small freezer, if you were staying for a week & didn’t want to go near any shops like we didn’t."

    Loved the cottage would go again & would definitely recommend as I have already.

  • "We had a pleasant week at the cottage and the only reason the comfort score is low is unfortunate timing as we were there when the heating wasn't working."

    Other than that it is a lovely little cottage and my husband and I and our two dogs wouldn't hesitate to go back (after some reassurance the heating was working). There are loads of great places within easy access and a nice little walk direct from the cottage which the dogs appreciated in the morning and evening, the large garden is really secure for the dogs and a huge bonus.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Laundry Cottage."

    A welcome surprise was a dishwasher that wasn't mentioned in the amenities. The cottage itself was warm & welcoming, beds were very comfortable as were the settees in the lounge. The kitchen had every utensil you could ever need/want. The wildlife in the surrounding area was lovely red squirrels, rabbits & the odd chicken wandering by. The wifi was very intermittent but this was advertised at the time of booking. Mobile reception was also poor so wouldn't advise for anyone who relies heavily on their phones. Other than that it was very peaceful & quiet with an excellent supply of books to bury your nose in. Would definitely recommend

  • "The location of the "Old Laundry" is superb."

    Set amongst the trees it is tranquil and relaxing. Wild life all around it is the perfect place to unwind. The interior is well appointed and comfortable with the conversion being of a very high standard. We would most certainly return.

The property

This charming, single storey cottage was originally used as an old laundry to the main house but has since been developed into a delightful holiday home in Aberargie, close to the amenities of Perth.

Presented to a lovely standard, The Old Laundry Cottage is a peaceful, welcoming base up a single-track road for families or couples to call home while exploring Scotland.

Its central location provides easy access to Perth, St Andrews, Stirling and Edinburgh.

The sitting room’s French doors look out onto the large, enclosed garden where you can watch your children or dogs play or simply enjoy the tranquillity of your surrounds.

Make your way into the spacious kitchen/diner, fitted with a host of appliances to assist in home-cooking and settle down at the dining table, toasting to a long-awaited getaway before getting stuck into a hearty meal.

As you tire, discover the bedrooms to catch your rest, offering a double and twin option, served by a contemporary bathroom with bath and shower over, so you can enjoy lazy soaks and refreshing rinses.

Venture into Perth, which was once Scotland’s ancient capital for five centuries and is still a hub of activity today; nestled on the banks of River Tay, you can delight in riverside walks before stopping in one of the local cafés or tea rooms, discovering a wealth of fabulous bars and restaurants.

Visit Scone Palace, an A-listed historic building which was famously the crowning place of the King of Scots.

It is a place of splendour set in magnificent grounds which host a variety of events throughout the year from music festivals, medieval events, horse trials and many more.

Other locations of interest include Huntingtower Castle and Murray Star Maze, while Perthshire is also known as being a wonderful area for woodland walks, with the peaks of Schiehallion and Ben Lawers being great for keen ramblers.

Once those are complete, you can access to the cities of St Andrews, Edinburgh and Stirling within an hour’s drive!

Relish in this wonderful Scottish location during your stay at The Old Laundry Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
