    Especially in ththe winter months to help keep the room warm. Us, and our two labradors, had a wonderful 10 days. Gardens and walks from the house perfect for the dogs

    Really well equipped, beautiful decor. Comfy beds. We stayed over Christmas and had a fabulous time. We saw red squirrels in the garden along with rabbits and a pheasant. The enclosed garden is great for dogs to run around.

  • "If you want peace, quiet and total relaxation, then this is the place for you."

    If you want easy access to motorway links, towns and tourist spots, then this is the place for you, what a very rare combination! Our two dogs loved the large, very secure garden, as well as watching the two wee robins that came up to the patio doors every morning to look for their breakfast. We went at a time when there was snow, ice and very low temperatures, when we arrived the cottage was so warm and toasty for us to walk into. Very comfortable furniture and beds. The owner has thought of everything for you to have a comfortable stay, so many little extras that you don't get at other properties. Such a convenient place to stay, 5 minutes to a couple of villages either way, 10 minutes to Perth, where you have a large choice of shops and supermarkets. Go to the bottom of the drive turn right to go to Fife, left to Perth and 5 minutes take you to the motorway for Glasgow, Stirling, Edinburgh, Dundee, Inverness. What more could you ask for?

  • "Our stay at The Old Laundry Cottage was perfect."

    The cottage is very well appointed, we had everything we needed. It was spacious, private and the gardens were ideal for our two dogs. We even saw red squirrels! It is well located for picturesque countryside but also the motorway for further afield trips. As it is all on one level it was a perfect convalescence home for me recovering from a hip replacement. We most certainly be back!

    Spotlessly clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Owners were friendly and professional too. Situated in fabulous surroundings with abundant wildlife, we enjoyed watching the rabbits and red squirrels in the garden. Plenty to see and do regardless of the weather! We have no hesitation in recommending "The Old Laundry Cottage" as a fantastic holiday venue.

  • "Tara was quite frankly the perfect host."

    Easy to reach if any questions, friendly and welcoming. The cottage is the most wonderful, peaceful and relaxing place my little family and I have stayed to date, and we will absolutely be back in the future to continue our exploration of beautiful Scotland. The cottage is an ideal base to go out and discover the glorious countryside, alongside the captivating cities of Edinburgh and Stirling with their magical architecture and places to see. The kitchen is also well equipped with a free standing fridge freezer as well as a smaller fridge, and all the cutlery etc that could ever be required. A truly fabulous and joyously relaxing week for two adults and our young children, the garden is also perfect for a toddler to run freely to their hearts content, whilst being absolutely safe and enclosed. The children (and is grown ups) loved the wildlife that frequented the grounds with rabbits, birds and even a bat. Huge thanks to Tara for welcoming us to her cottage, it could not have been any better, exactly what was needed.

  • "One of the nicest, most comfortable holiday properties we have ever stayed in."

    It has everything a family needs for a comfortable, relaxing stay, and is ideally located for exploring Perthshire, Fife and even Glasgow/Edinburgh. Of particular note, the rooms are larger than the photos convey (particularly the lounge and kitchen) and the Internet connectivity was more than adequate for relaxing with some streaming TV in the evening. We also appreciated the fully enclosed garden, and so can recommend the property if you’re planning to holiday with a dog. (as we did).

    We are from Edinburgh, so not too far away, but with home working these last two years things can get tricky in your own space learning how to switch off - there’s always something to be done! This was the perfect setting for us. Very spacious, very clean and well decorated, very homely, great smart TV and a wonderful garden for the dog (which is very well maintained) in beautiful, peaceful surroundings. The kitchen is well equipped, great utility, comfortable sofas and a lovely bathroom/powerful shower. I feel like I’ve had two weeks off work- when it’s just been a week. Some family came up to visit whilst we were there and they are now thinking of booking. Just wonderful - thank you.

  • "Thus is a beautiful cottage to stay."

    Comfortable bed, great bathroom, utility room, lounge and massive garden, which our dog, Amber, loved to play in. Excellent facilities, with large kitchen/diner. Lots of kitchenware and cutlery. Only one negative. Very small fridge with tiny ice box. We had to be careful when going shopping, thinking would we get it into the fridge. Considering this is self catering for up to 4 people, I think they would struggle with the lack of fridge space. There were only 2 of us and we found it a bit of a problem. The kitchen is so spacious it could easily take a full height frudge/freezer. Having said that, we spent a very enjoyable week there.

  • "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.

    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!

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.

    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 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.
