About this listing
Situated on a working farm in an elevated position above the Vale of Strathmore, Ardormie Farm Cottage is an ideal base to relax and explore this wonderful area of Scotland. The cottage is light and airy with open views over the countryside.
A cottage in the countryside with wide open views. Ardormie Farm Cottage is cosy in the winter and has a great little patio for sitting outside in the summer. Everything you need is right here; a double bedroom, bathroom with bath and shower overhead, cosy sitting/dining room and a little kitchen fully equipped with cooker, fridge, microwave and all you need to make your stay just perfect.
We have just installed a new biomass boiler so the heating is provided from an entirely renewable energy source. Radiators have been fitted throughout and there is a thermostatic temperature control so you can set the temperature to suit. There is a washer/drier and outside in the steading the wood pellet boiler is heating a drying room which you are welcome to use for any wet outdoor gear.
The cottage is on a working farm. My neighbours breed and train sheep dogs, it's fascinating to watch them at work. The surrounding countryside is what you would expect of rural Perthshire - mountains, lochs, stunning views, rich history, peace and quiet. This is a great place to be based as there is much to explore.
The place is yours to enjoy. I live next door and I'm really happy to help with any questions you may have, there is also lots of local information available in the cottage. Although, sometimes I'm not at home, maybe I'm off staying in an airbnb somewhere else!
Guests have access to some wonderful open countryside. The Cateran Trail goes right through the farm and offers good well marked walking routes.
The cottage has it's own garden but there are no fences and guests are welcome to use the trampoline and the washing green. If you have a dog and want to keep it within the whole garden you are welcome to shut the gates into my courtyard and this should make it secure.
Interaction with Guests
I'm always happy to help and answer questions and live right next door. Equally, I'm very happy to leave you in peace and everything in the cottage is pretty much self explanatory.
I ask that guests leave the cottage as they find it, clean and tidy.
Well behaved pets are welcome but not on the furniture please. Also they have to be kept under control when outside.
