“Delightful Cottage and Gardens”
Reviewed August 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed the first week in August. The Scottish weather was not always favourable, but the cottage more than compensated, Very comfortable. Norman has put so much thought and detail into the cottage and garden that it felt very much like a home from home. The wood burning stove just added the finishing touch. Excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Although we couldn't guarantee the weather, i'm glad you found a cosy place besides the wood burner. Norman will be so pleased with your comments. Many thanks

“Strathview Cottage”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here for 5 nights in July and had a very relaxing time. Norman was a very kind and helpful man who brought us a lovely fresh loaf and an apple pie which was delicious. He also very kindly secured the garden as we had our dog with us.

The cottage itself was very clean and warm and had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. I would describe this cottage as quaint, charming and full of character.

It was a short drive into Auchterarder and it was also within easy reach of Crieff. We also did a few walk from Auchterarder town and I would recommend the wee red book which is in the cottage for any other walks within the local area.
Would recommend to friends and family.
Thanks for a lovely stay.

Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your stay. The red book is our holy grail over at Strathview - i'm glad you managed to enjoy some of the walks on your stay. Norman will be so happy that you had a pleasant stay and we hope to see you again soon!

“Stunning cottage”
Reviewed June 18, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Absolutely beautiful cottage both inside and out. Tardis-like, small on outside, large rooms, particularly the living room and bedroom. Decoratively matches the rooms and the garden is wonderful. Felt very at home and didn't want to leave! Well located to the hills and lakes to the north and the historic sites of Stirling in the South. Great restaurant, Jon and Fernanda's, in Auchertarder. Local Golf Club also welcomes visitors. Local distillery great for guided tour, small and intimate. Norman provides a warm and friendly welcome, plus a gorgeous cherry pie! Loads of cooking and cleaning resources, perfect for people on a short stay. Thoroughly recommended.

“Very comfortable and warm cottage (with an atmosphere)”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed for one week in the cottage and were positively surprised. First of all all communication (by e-mail) with Holiday-lettings went perfect, personal and professional.
The cottage is very well equipped, everything is there. Beds are really good and the very warm welcome by Norman (including the first needs, a bottle of wine and even a bouquet of flowers) was exceptional. The wood stove is giving the right atmosphere for the chilly evenings and we could use as much wood as we liked. With a good glass of wine or a whiskey, after a day hiking in the highlands, this gives the perfect feeling. Thanks! The village itself (30 min walk) is not very much, although there's a Coop supermarket 9.00-23:00 and some pubs. We preferred Crieff (15 min drive) for restaurants, pubs and shopping.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. We are so glad you enjoyed your week and felt that all communication you had with us, TS Properties, was personal and professional. Strathview Cottage is a lovely property for relaxing in and with the little touches provided by Norman, most guests don't want to leave! The nearby village of Auchterarder has a selection of shops and restaurants, enough to at least get you started, but preference may be given to the larger town of Crieff.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My Husband and I stayed here for 4 nights to escape the mayhem of London and could not be more happy with our choice. The cottage is really cozy and has everything you need. The owner Norman is really friendly and welcomed us with the fire already lit, some fresh bread and a lovely pie - very tasty! Gleneagles is walking distance as are a couple of other restaurants. Auchterarder is a bit further away but only 5 minutes in the car and has a really good co-op supermarket that has everything you will need if you fancy a night in. The lovely comfortable bed meant we were fully rested during our entire stay. Would love to come back again and will recommend to friends.

“Totally, utterly brilliant.”
Reviewed January 24, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is the second time we have Ben to this beautiful cottage. This time it was very short notice, but our host, Norman met us , offered us tea, and had already lit the log fire. We settled down , and he promptly came back with bread for us,real service. It is a beautiful place, quiet ,clean and excellently appointed. Sat by the fire ,watched the world go by, for three days. I cannot praise Norman,or is this cottage enough, I don't have enough space, but any time of year, it is a great place to get away and relax....try it, you will not regret it, I promise.

It's always nice to have someone stay in a property and have a great time, but even better when they return and it's as good, if not better, than the first experience! We're so pleased you had another great stay at Strathview Cottage and will be sure to pass your lovely comments on to Norman. We hope you will return again the near future.

“Weekend break”
Reviewed January 16, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed here for 3 nights in November and it was wonderful. The cottage is so cosy, especially with the Woodburn. Norman greeted us upon arrival and left us some lovely little welcome gifts. Highly recommend this cottage.
