This is also an ideal hen party house for 12.
The Old Manse is a delightful 18th century house lying in the tiny hamlet of Monzie, just 3 miles north of Crieff. Surrounded by the glorious Perthshire countryside, it is an idyllic, secluded spot and perfectly located to explore much of Scotland, or just relax in the beautiful garden.
It's a very spacious house so the perfect choice for a gathering of family or friends, perhaps to celebrate a special occasion for a weekend or for a longer holiday in a large country house in Scotland.
On the ground floor is the enormous kitchen which has a 4-door Aga, American-style large fridge/freezer, Nespresso machine, microwave, dishwasher and lots of crockery and cooking utensils - everything you will need is there. There is a large wooden table with seating for 12 and at the far end a sofa, TV and DVD player. There’s also a radio/stereo system with i-pod docking station. If you want to push the table to one side and have a few reels then there’s plenty of room to do that and no neighbours within earshot!
A conservatory leads off the kitchen and it's a great place to enjoy the winter sun. There is also a separate laundry room (and a WC off it) with a washing machine and overhead pulley drier.
The area outside the kitchen has a table football table and lots of games and toys for children to enjoy. There’s a separate lobby with a desk and lamp if you need to work whilst here or just want a quiet space to finally finish your novel. Lots of board games, jigsaws and DVDs for adults and children are in the kitchen – there is plenty to keep everyone happy inside including a table tennis top for the dining room table.
If you’re bringing a baby or toddler then there’s a travel cot available, 2 high chairs and lots of plastic crockery and cutlery too. Plenty of games and toys will keep everyone happily entertained inside and out.
On the ground floor is a double bedroom with a large ensuite shower-room, which is ideal for the less mobile. There’s another separate WC too. The dining hall has a dining room table for 10 and a piano (very out of tune though!) - a more formal place for a celebratory dinner. The stunning sitting room has an open fire and superb views to the south - this is such a wonderful place to relax in, at all times of the day - with antique furniture but modern comfortable sofas, it is easy to lose yourself in a book or chat about your day in front of the roaring fire.
Upstairs is a large bedroom with a super-king bed, fitted wardrobe and ensuite shower room; a smaller twin bedroom; a double bedroom with ensuite shower room; and a very large bedroom with basin and 4 single beds. The family bathroom has a shower over the pea shaped bath and there’s a separate upstairs WC. All the beds have electric blankets so you will be extra cosy in the winter months (there is central heating too of course!).
The garden is fully enclosed so your children and dogs can play safely outside. There is a large hot tub, a trampoline and a variety of garden games including croquet and swing ball. On the terrace are outdoor tables and chairs (for 12), and charcoal BBQs are in the shed for al fresco dining – it’s a perfect place to relax and hopefully you’ll see the red squirrels too.
There is parking for lots of cars in the driveway.
Our family lived here for many happy years and it’s now our holiday house (as we moved to Edinburgh) so it feels very much like a home rather than impersonal holiday accommodation. If you’re looking for a large holiday house in Scotland with a hot tub which welcomes pets, then look no further!
