“Absolute perfection”
Reviewed October 27, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This holiday let is of the highest standard. Along with her other property in Pitlochry the owner provides everything a family or group of friends could possibly need for a holiday in Scotland. The Retreat is in an ideal location for exploring nearby or further afield.

“Outstanding Holiday Base”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were looking forward to getting to the retreat just from the lovely pictures we saw when booking but I can say with absolute confidence nothing will prepare you for the sight that greets you upon your arrival. A wonderful hamper filled with top notch goodies and fresh flowers were an added personal touch from the lovely owner, Muriel. The house literally has everything you could ever want in a home and all is of excellent quality, Muriel has spared no expense nor cut any corners. For those concerned about beds, I can categorically say this king size bed was the most comfortable bed I've slept in for a very long time and the same could be said of the other beds throughout the house also covered with beautiful high quality linen. Plenty of towels are included as well as kitchen towels and all the equipment you could ever need. The sitting room is particularly pleasant and I can imagine the real fire is just beautiful come the winter months. The kids loved the big garden and the air hockey table and the audio/tv equipment was outstanding. The owner, Muriel, is a lovely lady and her provision of accommodation detail is fantastic. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday in your beautiful home! I almost didn't want to write this as it's telling far too many people what a complete gem we've discovered!! The Retreat is highly recommended.

“The Retreat accommodation is something special.”
Reviewed February 14, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Superb home from home comfort, open fire for those cold evenings. Very well equipped, which really is nice and rare. Knowing I was a German Shepherd owner of Poppy, left cushions; place mats and oven gloves with poppy flower on them, along with 2 pot GSD ornaments. Such a lovely thought. Would love to stay again very soon

“The Retreat - faultless”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

From the moment we were greeted by Muriel, the owner, we were totally bowled over by The Retreats wonderful location and the high standard of every element of the property, both indoors and outdoors. The welcome hamper was well stocked with treats and was indicative of the high standard of the property. It is in a peaceful setting close to Pitlochry and many visitor attractions in the surrounding areas. The Retreat provides a model that all self catering properties should aim to live up to.

“Excellent house, top quality. A real home from home.”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed for New Year with another family. We could not fault this house at all. A lovely, comfortable and well furnished home from home. Great location, just under a 10 minute drive into Pitlochry. Very nice welcome hamper on arrival with treats for the kids and wine for the adults and fresh flowers. The BBQ hut was an excellent way to see in the New Year. Kids loved the Air Hockey. A very spacious and cozy house. Would definitely recommend this house and are hoping to stay again in the future.
