The cottage is part of the ground floor of Kippenross House, and has a private entrance off a courtyard. It is a very spacious flat and has been fully refurbished recently to provide a luxury holiday home to rent in the heart of Scotland.
All linen and towels are provided free of charge. The beds have duvets with cotton sheets and we supply two towels per person.
Logs for the wood-burning stove and electricity are included in the price.
This luxury cottage is non-smoking - but of course you are welcome to smoke outside.
There is central heating and electric blankets on all the beds, so you will be cosy in the winter.

Bathroom with bath and shower above; and heated towel rail.
A beautiful, fully-equipped, kitchen and a very large dining/sitting room (with wooden flooring) and a wood-burning stove.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need: stainless steel oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and microwave. Environmentally-friendly washing and dishwasher powder, cleaning materials etc are all provided.
There is a colour television, video, DVD player, CD player and radio. Also some books, videos and board games and DVDs.
You have your own private sitting out area in the garden with table and chairs. We also provide a barbeque - this was a Victorian spa town so the weather can be surprisingly good!
A cot and highchair can be provided if necessary (we can also arrange babysitting if you want to go out for the evening). If you need anything else for your baby or children then we can probably provide it - just ask!
You can use our tennis court free of charge (there are tennis racquets and balls kept on the court which you can use) and walk around the glorious parkland. The Allan Water runs through the bottom of the park and deer are live on the estate (often seen in the garden too!). If you enjoy birdwatching then there are lots of interesting species to observe.
