A holiday cottage break can be an excellent and memorable gift for loved ones and Little Briar has a lot to offer given its location, stunning landscape and proximity to Loch Earn in Perthshire, Scotland.
Elevated on the 2 acre site of a 300 year old thatched cottage, Little Briar boasts stunning views over Loch Earn to Edinample Castle and Glen Ample. Once the site of an ancient croft and farmland in the name of McGregor, followed by the Duke of Breadalbane and two centuries of McLarens the grounds and property are lovingly cared for by Fraser and Kim Proven who evolved from sales and marketing backgrounds to self catering holiday letting as a way of life. The Provens are on hand to greet you and will make every effort to ensure that you have a comfortable and memorable break. Guests are invited to peek inside their 300 year old stone cottage to hear stories of previous inhabitants and the cruck timber ceiling in the byre. They are more than happy to let you experience their hot tub too. You only have to ask.
The property is 200 metres away from 2 hotels with a water sports centre, shop and post office in the village. Briar Cottages enjoys a 250ft stretch of garden with a jetty, slipway and 3 mooring buoys on Loch Earn. Guests can use the facilities including a summer house and picnic tables with intermittent activity coming from visiting ospreys, the resident sea-plane, water skiers and fishermen. Trout fishing is free from the garden during 15th March to 6th October. Fishing tackle can be hired in the Post Office with permits for those who want to fish neighbouring lochs.
The south facing cottage offers a compact kitchen dining and lounge area, a bathroom with an electric shower, Sky TV, WiFi with 1 double and 1 twin room sleeping 2-4, plus 1 pet welcome. The spacious gardens are landscaped offering a BBQ, wooden decking, picnic tables and loungers. Each seasons landscape is as stunning as the last whether you are fishing, sailing, walking the dog around the grounds, sunbathing, picking the blackcurrants and cherries beside the cottage or sledging in the snow from the hill in the paddock beside the stream.
Lochearnhead is central within Scotland where the A84 and A85 meet, making it the perfect base from which to visit tourist towns and attractions in every direction.
