A beautifully converted steading that lies in its own peaceful setting surrounded by spectacular countryside and with many opportunities for fishing and other outdoor pursuits.

This beautiful property, situated 4.5 miles from Tay Forest Park, is a perfect retreat for a small family or two couples – and the loyal canine, of course! Sleeping four across two bedrooms, this converted steading is a peaceful haven away from busy life. Located less than 2 miles from the River Tay, there are plenty of opportunities for fishing and the owner even has access to two Upper Tay beats. Whatever you decide to do, the house is an ideal base to come back to after a long day.

The property, which has exposed stone throughout, is cosy and comfortable. The open-plan living area is fresh and bright with wood vaulted ceilings and a contemporary breakfast bar opposite the kitchen, while the dining table is ideal to gather around. The fantastic billiard room is perfect for keeping guests entertained during the day or after dinner. In the evening, snuggle up on the sofa in front of the fire with your pup on your lap. Each bedroom has a wood burner for chilly evenings; snooze in tranquillity before waking up and heading to the patio for an al fresco coffee.

Pop to the gardens at Castle Menzies (3 miles) for a quick morning walk, or head into Aberfeldy (4 miles) for a hearty pub lunch or to peruse the shops. Further afield, Faskally Forest (20 miles) is an enchanting place to take children and dogs and will be a hit with all ages. Blair Castle (26 miles) welcomes dogs in the grounds, so whether you want to stay near or venture far there are plenty of things to do with your four-legged friend.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The breathtakingly beautiful Loch Tay and the Tay Forest Park offer miles of superb walking and cycling routes as well as kayaking and wildlife cruises on the loch. Keen climbers may want to bag themselves a Munro by heading to Ben Lawers (16 miles).

The charming town of Aberfeldy (3.5 miles) is home to Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery – whisky lovers will enjoy a tour and a taste of this local single malt. There is a good selection of places to eat and drink in the town, as well as some interesting gift shops, including The Aberfeldy Watermill, a bookshop/café in the 200-year-old watermill.

En route to Aberfeldy you could stop by the fascinating Castle Menzies (2.5 miles). This beautiful turreted castle, originally home to the Menzies family, is now owned by the Menzies Clan Society and is slowly and lovingly being restored from near ruin. Visitors are welcome inside and out, plus there is a tea room for refreshment.

Stunning location 3 miles from Aberfeldy where there is good amenities including a large supermarket. The Steading has everything you need, lovely and warm with a real snug feel. Exceeded our expectations, we will definitely return

Reviewed by Mrs Macleod June 2019

This is a fantastic property in an idyllic location. The property is very well equipped and has everything you need. It has all the basic essentials along with a fantastic fireplace, billiard table and stunning views from the garden. Both bedrooms are located at either end of the property which provides greater privacy if it is two couples travelliRead moreng together however, might not be ideal for a family with young children. There is a tumble dryer, although I would have liked to be able to dry my washing outside or even on a clothes horse. The location is ideal for touring Perthshire, only a short drive into Aberfeldy where there are some good eating places. We would definitely recommend the Black Watch Bar / Croft Restaurant, the food was lovely. We had to eat in the bar as we had a dog with us. Would also recommend Highland Safaris which is only minutes from the property. We would definitely stay again. Hide

Great central location to explore Scotland and lots of local attractions and walks to do, one week was not long enough. Farleyer Steading is a lovely house all open plan, well equipped kitchen, open log fire and not forgetting the pool/snooker table Lots of local restaurants at aberfeldy and round the nearby loch Tay.

Reviewed by Mr Trotter January 2019

We went here with our friends for a short break. The owner was very friendly and the Steading was very big and comfortable. You do have to go outside to enter the bedroom wings but this was never a problem. The property was lovely and warm throughout and the large open fire was fantastic. The added bonus of a full size snooker table was useful. In Read morethe summer I can image sitting outside and admiring the magnificent valley views. We would definitely recommend. Hide
