The Hayloft is a two bedroomed cottage converted from an 18th century traditional stone steading. Once a weavers cottage, the vertical wooden beams which supported the loom can still be seen in the kitchen/dining area. Visitors find its peaceful location an added bonus as they relax and recharge before heading off to explore the many sites and attractions in the surrounding area or taking part in their chosen pursuit. Many visitors choose to add to their relaxation by booking a massage or reflexology session with our on-site therapist and some come specifically for a weekend or week-long retreat. An added bonus is the spring water from our own private spring so no chlorine! All the water comes through a filtration system and is regularly tested by the local council.

Further details indoors

On the ground floor, the beautiful master bedroom leads off the main tiled corridor. The bedroom has a traditional feel with original wooden beams and looks out onto the courtyard. The master bedroom has a very comfortable kingsize bed, bedside tables, chest of drawers, floor lamp, wardrobe with mirror, chair and heater. As you move up the stairs from the dining area to the upper landing, you will find the second bedroom leading from this area. The secondary bedroom can either have a super kingsize or two singles as well as an additional single bed. The bedroom also has a wardrobe, bedside tables and great views out over the local hills and the Strathmore Valley. Off the ground floor hallway and next to the master bedroom is the newly renovated family bathroom. The showerroom is located on the first floor.

French doors lead from the hallway through to the kitchen and dining area. The open plan kitchen is large and very modern contrasting wonderfully with the original wooden beams. The kitchen is also the dining area and can seat 6. It's well equipped with an electric cooker, hob and oven, large fridge/freezer, microwave & dishwasher.

The kitchen looks out over the courtyard and also leads out to the rear patio. Just off the kitchen, in the hallway, is the washer/dryer cupboard. Under the stairs there's plenty of storage and all the appliances needed for cleaning - Iron, Ironing board, Hoover, clothes airer etc.

Further details outdoors

The Hayloft is set in a cobbled courtyard with two other properties. Parking is in the courtyard directly outside the cottage. Local walks can be accessed from the door and there's a safe half-hour walk round the owners 38 acres of grassland. An outdoor tap is useful for cleaning mud off boots, bikes or cars after a day in the countryside.

The Perth and Kinross region

Situated in the heart of Scotland, Perthshire represents the perfect place to find all that you expect of a great Scottish holiday. Most of Perthshire is little more than one hour by road or rail from Glasgow, Edinburgh, or Aberdeen.

Take a walk in Perthshire in spring and summer and discover why this beautiful region is known as ‘Big Tree Country’, home of the tallest trees, widest conifer and tallest hedge in Britain.

Use some of the 250 miles of waymarked paths to get to the Roman camps, medieval castles and whisky distilleries where you can spend the day out discovering all about the detailed history.

Venture into the hills and mountains of the Cairngorms National Park in Highland Perthshire to see the wildlife - head out with a guide to learn more about the animals and see the best sights.

Once you’ve soaked up the scenery of outdoor Perthshire, head into the city to find shops, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and theatres. Framed by two grand public parks and the striking Tay Street promenade, Perth is a lovely city offering the best in shopping, nightlife and culture.

Enjoy a number of exciting activities in Perthshire from gorge walking and fishing to pony trekking and sphereing.


The red stone towns of Blairgowrie and Rattray lie on either side of the River Ericht where it emerges from spectacular gorges in Strathmore. By the end of the 18thC the Blairgowrie area was a huge centre for the growing of flax. Initially the linen weaving industry was home based but the first industrial mill was erected in 1798. More recently the area has become the focus of Perthshire's soft fruit growing, especially raspberries.

Nearby Rosemount golf course was designed by some of the great early names of Scottish golf and is considered one of the best inland courses in Scotland.

Between Blairgowrie and Dunkeld lies the Loch of Lowes, a Scottish Wildlife Trust reserve where you can watch otters or the rare osprey.

To the north lies the Spittal of Glenshee with Scotland's largest skiing area.

Blairgowrie is also the main start point for the 62-mile circular Cateran Trail that walkers can follow around the historic drove roads used by cattle rustlers.

Review 1-9 of 9

My friends and I have been visiting South Littleton since 2010. This was our 6th visit. it is such a relaxing place to stay surrounded by beautiful countryside. Nothing is too much trouble for Hazel (she even rose at 6am last weekend to show the nature lovers in our group a beautiful walk along a river where some beavers live). The cottage is always immaculate with lovely touches eg fresh flowers on the dining table. The outside sitting area is lovely with views over the countryside ( we have seen hot air balloons coming across the countryside towards us- a beautiful sight).

Thanks for the lovely review. It was great to see you all again and I enjoyed our early morning walk down to the river too. Hopefully see you in the spring for another retreat. You'll be able to see the beavers in the evening then instead of getting up at the crack of dawn.
