In the Highlands of Perthshire, the School house is the perfect, relaxing Scottish country retreat. Spacious and quiet, with tranquil views, this is real countryside living. This large, private detached home has recently undergone a full renovation.
*Pet free home*
The Schoolhouse, a former Victorian school, this large detached property has been fully renovated over a two year period. This is a labour of love! Over two floors, as much of the old charm has been retained as possible. With original wooden flooring, picture rails, big school door, and log burning stove that heats the 4 metre high vaulted school room.
Our beautiful interior designed home houses a collection of antiques and items collected over 20 years in flea markets, auctions and antique shops throughout Europe. The Old School House in Perthshire is an enjoyable, peaceful place to be.
With two main bedrooms you can drift to sleep in one of the twin beds, or in the king size Antique French upholstered bed. In addition, if there is a fifth member of your party, they can use the third bedroom which has an antique half tester bed (but is a little on the short side - not suitable for taller people!) There are two bathrooms, each with free-standing baths. There is no shower, but there is a (powerful!) shower attachment that can be used when you are having a bath.
This spacious, eclectic home, is the perfect base to explore all that both Perthshire and Scotland has to offer.
To make your stay as comfortable as possible, you will have full access to WIFI, washer & dryer, kitchen with microwave, oven, gas hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. You can choose to eat in the dining kitchen, or at the main dining table in the School room. There are two comfortable sofas and armchairs, in front of the large log burning stove. There are two bathrooms, one has an original roll top cast iron bath, the other is roll top and made from volcanic stone. No shower, but baths fill quickly!
Available to you:
Towels, Fresh Linen, Hairdryer, Shampoo, Conditioner and soap.
Speedy Wifi, tea, coffee, milk to get you started, full use of kitchen and condiments. I should mention there is no TV - enjoy a peaceful break in front of the log fire instead :)
* Please note that we love children, but the School House is not currently suitable for young children due to the stream and ponds*
You will have full access to the house including; dining kitchen, 32 foot dining/living room with large sofas (the former school) two bathrooms, two bedrooms (third if you have a 5th member in your party) and gardens which feature an Italian garden (ponds), and a small stream. There is also parking for up to 3 cars.
There are an array of garden tables and chairs to position yourself as the sun moves around the garden during the day.
We are in a wonderful rural Highland Perthshire location, but have good WIFI access throughout the house. We don't have a television though :)
Interaction with guests
We are happy to answer any questions you have and happy to continue communicating with you during your stay.
Other things to note
We love children. However, due to safety issues regarding both the pond and stream in the garden, the house is sadly not suitable for young children.
Pet free home - except the fish in the pond!
We want you to feel comfortable and at home!
As this is our full time home, we appreciate you treating the Schoolhouse with the same respect as you would your own property.
- Non-smoking home. Smoking is OK provided it is outside, away from open doors/windows
- Pet free household (sadly we are allergic!)
- No loud music after 10.00pm please, we are rural and have lovely neighbours
- Two booked guest maximum per room upstairs, One booked guest maximum downstairs (it's not big enough for two!)
- Please ensure the Schoolhouse is left in the same condition as you find it.
- Please bring slippers, and leave your outdoor shoes in the entrance/boot room rather than wearing them in the house.
- Please can you strip your beds (except cotton mattress protectors) and leave pillow cases, duvet covers and sheets in the boot room before you leave.
- Please do not bring young children, we love them, but have ponds and a little river in the garden.
Finally - the main thing about your stay is that you have a relaxing, fun time. This is a beautiful part of Perthshire and I hope you enjoy our home.
I look forward to welcoming you. Enjoy!
