“Perfect Location”

person found this review helpful

This cottage was lovely , everything supplied for a wee home from home - very well equipped. We arrived on a Friday evening and whilst the heating was on at low it took us a while to get the house to warm up. Even with a real fire we could still feel the draft coming from the conservatory which was a shame - a big heavy curtain would be just the job for this. Lovely garden, our dog just loved it - look forward to visiting again when the weather is a bit warmer.
Perfect location for lovely walks - had a great time. Rosemary was very helpful also.

Hello thank-you for your feed back - good idea for the winter to get a big heavy type curtain -will action that when next up - it could be tied back in warmer months . Think is has to be tartan in the highlands ! Glad you had a good time. Best to you and yours. Rosemary.

“Fairly comfortable once warmed up.”
Reviewed 27 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The weather had been very cold -8 deg and we were looking forward to a warm cottage. Unfortunately it was freezing inside when we arrived and as we had young grandchildren with us, all we could do was put heating on full and go away again for an hour or so and find a warm café till it warmed up. After a couple of hours all was fine although the kitchen area and floor were never what you would call comfortable. A disappointing start to our stay although everything tuned out well in the end.
All Aberfeldy amenities are close at hand and the cinema is particularly good for food and entertainment.

Ah dear ,sorry to read that it was cold on arrival. ( I know it does heat up quite quickly. ) -8 was a pretty cold snap. We leave the heating on frost when unoccupied but take on board your comments and have a lovely neighbour along the road who would pop along a few hours before guests arrive and turn it up.:)) Obviously conscious of trying to give value for money we try not to run the heating full blast when the property is empty as we don't have an extra charge for ever increasing utilities but don't want our guest to arrive to a cool cottage either and have to wait an hour to heat up so apologies for that. We have found the place very cozy on winter visits. Glad you enjoyed your vacation though in this beautiful part of Bonnie Scotland. Kind regards rosemary.

“Lovely spacious cottage”
Reviewed 15 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Great spacious cottage within walking distance of the town and shops. Large kitchen area, lots of sofas, real fire and an enclosed garden so adults, children and dog all happy! Aberfeldy is lovely and there is so much to see in the area, we hope to return here soon.
Tip: We arrived on the dark so it was a bit tricky to find so make sure and get directions if you are doing the same!

“Just can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Just returned from a short break in The Armoury. Lovely, cosy cottage located in the town of Aberfeldy which is a great base for exploring the area. Great spacious kitchen and sun room overlooking the private enclosed garden which was perfect for our golden retriever. Good communication from the owner who was more than helpful throughout the booking process. Did not want for anything during our stay and will certainly be rebooking next year. Would highly recommend this cottage.

“Wonderful stay, in close proximity to the lovely town of Aberfeldy”
Reviewed 17 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had a wonderful time staying at the Armoury Cottage, can be a little confusing at first as the house is set back behind another property but luckily we were aware of this from reading previous reviews! Very deceiving actually, as even though you are in the centre of town it feels like you are out in the middle of nowhere. There is a very sweet little garden, fully enclosed for the dog and I can imagine it would be dab in the summer for nice BBQs. The cottage itself is beautiful with lots of nice little touches, lovely open fire that our little pug loved to lay out in front of on an evening. It is also very nice to have the living room be the centre of the house. Very grateful to find a few cleaning essentials, including toilet rolls (very important), matches, tea bags and other essentials, even though we did bring these with us.
Rosemary is a wonderful hostess and had been in touch quite a lot prior to the trip, and gave us some great ideas of things to do. There are also leaflets in the house to help you decide on activities to do. Whilst we were there we visited Kenmore (lovely), Pitlochry, Kinloch Rannoch, Strath Tummel, the birks of Aberfeldy, Blair Castle, Taymouth castle, Fort Augustus, Loch Ness, Invermoriston, the falls of Bruar, the Cairngorm mountain railway amongst others! Took our little dog everywhere with us which was great and enjoyed plenty of long and beautiful walks. Make sure to visit the Highland Chocolatier in Grandtully for a yummy chocolate fudge brownie - extremely enjoyable!
I would definitely stay here again without hesitation and would recommend it to anyone. I loved the cottage. Thank you Rosemary for making my first trip to Scotland so enjoyable!!
