About the property

House near Crieff, Perthshire, Scotland - Pets Welcome

The Old Manse of Monzie is a very spacious house set in the glorious Perthshire countryside and an idyllic setting for a get-together of family or friends. Situated in the centre of Scotland, it is perfectly placed to explore much of the country - but nearby are famous golf courses, distilleries, castles and fabulous walking from the doorstep so you might not have time to drive the hour to Edinburgh to explore its delights! Indeed many guests don't stray far and just enjoy relaxing in front of the open fire, or watching the red squirrels and admiring the view from the hot tub!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Recent testimonials: (the house has only been available for rent since May so these are the first guests!)

We've had the most wonderful half term here - accommodation superb and so much to do in the area. We all want to come back in the summer!

It was the most perfect venue for my father's 70th birthday - ideal for all ages and we had a really fabulous weekend - and sunshine too! Loved all the extra touches that make this such a very special house. Thank you for everything!

Missing the house already. What a great weekend!

The space and the location was everything we were looking for. The house is perfect for a friends and family reunion. The kitchen was my favourite room,plenty of cooking space for 12 guests and a lovely dining area. Anne was extremely helpful with her advise and great customer service. I would definitely recommend this house for anyone looking for a great space for any social occasion.

Fantastic house for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a weekend getaway for my wife's 40th.

Group of 7 of us.

Owner could not have been more helpful.

Beautiful and amazingly spacious house- photos and description don't do it justice. Massive dining kitchen, separate formal dining room, lovely sitting room and big garden.

Cannot recommend highly enough

Amazing place to stay for a family gathering !

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a family celebration and right from the first communication with the owner, could not have been happier with the experience. The house is beautiful, the gardens stunning and the added bonus of the hot tub made this one of the best week's we have ever had.

Everything has been thought of by the owner and it was so nice to be able to have space for everyone to do their own thing should they want to. The kitchen is enormous and with the bonus of an Aga, made cooking so simple and enjoyable. The area has so much to offer that a week was simply not long enough. We shall be back next Spring! Thank you so much.

Fantastic for large family/friend gathering.

  • 4 of 5

Have just returned from a Fantastic weekend break at The old Manse of Monzie. The Kitchen/dining/conservatory area is very welcoming and where our family of 12 relaxed and played games the whole weekend. There is a separate lounge with 3 large sofas and a log fire, however we all felt more comfortable gathered round the table while some of us learnt to cook on the Aga. The Lovely Bedrooms were all very big in size, the beds were made up on arrival with good quality pillows, quilts and heated blankets, Some rooms can become a little cold because of the size but you have access to the heating and hot water system, so it never became a problem. The towels are provided for you and you have access to a washing machine if you need to use it. There is a good selection of DVDs and games available for use. The Manse is surrounded by a beautiful private garden which our Dogs loved. Plenty room for them to run and play while the adults enjoyed the Hot tub. I would definitely come back here. The information pack provided on arrival was great and easy to follow, giving all the information needed for local activities and how to use the Aga, WiFi etc. Positives..... size of house (Could easy sleep more), Large fridge freezer, every cooking utensil you could need, Lots of extras in the kitchen (Tea, sugar, foil, salt, pepper etc), Toys, games, DVDs for kids, Ample supply of logs for the fire, peaceful & private gardens, WiFi and lots, lots more. Negatives..... if there are any, I would suggest a notice on the road saying Old Manse of Monzie (I passed it twice), and the only other thing, ensure the Hot tub is cleaned at the end of the break, (We used it Saturday but the Handyman came to clean it Sunday which left it out of use the rest of the break). Looking forward to booking this place again. The owners were more than helpful and accommodating, they offered great communication and customer service. Thank you for allowing us into your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Am so glad that you had a great stay and want to come again! I am very sorry that there was a mix up with the hot tub cleaning (it's emptied between each guests and the handyman thought you were leaving on Sunday - I do apologise for my mistake). Look forward to welcoming you in the future!

Lovely house in beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 adults and 2 children spent a superb weekend here for a family celebration. The house was ideal with plenty of space for everyone with a large dining kitchen for socialising. Cooking with the " Aga" was fun.

The weather was glorious and we made full use of the extensive garden, including the barbecue.

The children found plenty to play with, the tractor being the most popular.

We found the owner very helpful and informative.

Would definitely recommend this property.

Beautiful highland retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house - everything we could possibly have wanted was in place. We had a really happy and comfortable stay, but also made lots of trips out to see things - a trip to Perth, lovely walks from the door, and the stunning Loch Earn. In the evenings we made full use of the fantastic spacious kitchen. Thank you! See you in the summer, I hope!
