Bendarroch House is an absolutely charming period property set in an idyllic Perthshire location close by the village of Grandtully. After discovering this guesthouse less than 6 months ago, I have been back twice. For me, a visit here provides true escapism.
The property is set a 2 minute walk from Grandtully in beautiful and expansive riverside grounds. Inside the property is decorated in period style and, as well as a dining room, there are 2 guest lounges and a conservatory, which is open during the summer months.
This would not be the ideal choice for those looking for modern, hotel-style facilities as there are no televisions, hairdryers or kettles in the rooms. However, there are tea and coffee-making facilities in the conservatory or lounge (season-dependant!) and a television for guest-use in one of the lounges. Wireless internet access is also available on request.
Breakfast is served at 9am in the dining room and is ordered the night before. The options range from a full cooked breakfast to pancakes, omelette or (my choice) smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
This is an ideal base to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and the house is such a tranquil and romantic setting. The only thing interrupting the perfect calm is the soothing sound of water from the nearby river. On each occasion I have visited the house has been extremely quiet and I have hardly been aware of other guests.
I find the hostess very friendly and accommodating and it was not an issue when I let her know that I would be arriving slightly after the published check-in time.
Bendarroch House is my first choice of accommodation when I need to recharge the batteries for a night or two and never fails to disappoint. I think the tariff is incredibly modest for the quality of accommodation on offer.
