Very quaint and idyllic cottage set in the grounds of the Monzie estate. Clean, well equipped and comfortable place with a good feeling. Enjoyed walks on the estate, the cosy nights in front of the fire and lunch in the sunshine in the lovely garden. Alexandra was a great host and welcomed us with wine and brownies and even gave us a private tour of the family castle!

Great stay in a lovely cottage in very scenic surroundings. Secluded while also being only a short trip away from the centre of Crieff with its shops, restaurants and cafes. Alexandra was a great host, welcoming us with a home made treat and a bottle of wine, and she made everything feel easy. We stayed for 3 nights at the cottage, spending most of it enjoying the castle's grounds, or the comfy sitting room and the fireplace. We would definitely go again

The cottage is really delightful in every way. Having a separate laundry/mudroom space was terrific. (It can get a bit wet in Scotland...) What was missing from the description but very important for us were two things: the amazing proximity to open walks into the Highlands (Crieff is basically on the rim of an immense open area); and the wide variety of excellent golf courses nearby, at all price ranges.

Alexandra is a great host and the Gardener's Cottage is as idylic as the photos suggest. Despite the charm of an old house, it has all the modern elements to make your stay very comfortable. The garden, the grounds and sheep around the Castle were great. What nice walks we had!. We enjoyed it a lot the a wonderfull week we spent at the end of Aug 17. Certainly a must if you have a car and plan to stay around Perthshire.

Our stay in the Gardener's Cottage was so enjoyable. The cottage is beautifully tucked away on the Monzie Castle estate, allowing for lovely country walks and cozy evenings by the fire in the sitting room. The kitchen is very spacious and the bedrooms are so pretty and comfy. Alexandra very kindly gave us a tour of Monzie Castle, which allowed us to connect with the beautiful area even more. We were also pleasantly surprised by how much there was to do in the surrounding area. I highly recommend this cottage to guests looking for a lovely Scottish escape as we were.
