About Jane Cant

Hi, I have never used an agent, as part of the fun for me is to meet my guests when they arrive at the cottage.

To show them around and be there so that I can answer any queries or give them any help they may need.

I have had so many lovely comments and repeat business, so I must be doing something right!

I have lived in Scotland all my life and love it, with my husband ( who speaks German)) we live nearby but not in Crieff.

Our family are all grown up and we have grandchildren, dogs and hens, all spoilt in that order!...we both have a good knowledge of the surrounding area, and we look forward to meeting you.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Jane

Jane Cant purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Jane Cant chose Crieff

We lived there for many years, so it is not an unloved cottage, I love it if I have time before my visitors arrive, to just sit in the garden and have a cup of tea and admire the garden, which I have put a lot of work in to.

Crieff is great there are so many things to see in the surrounding area, there is a country cottage feel, but yet you are minutes from the town centre.

Access to Edinburgh and Glasgow are also within easy reach with good links to public transport, so you never feel remote while staying at Ivy Cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Just the chill-out feel, and the magic of Ivy Cottage does the rest.

Excellent value in this charming cotrage

  • 5 of 5

The very useful directions supplied by the owner Jane led us to this delightful cottage with it's lovely garden and welcoming warm interior. We enjoyed our time at Ivy Cottage immensely, we found It is exceptionally well resourced and we wanted for nothing. It is well situated for exploring Perthshire and the town itself has everything you need from pubs and restaurants to supermarkets and gift shops. I would highly recommend Ivy Cottage and hope you're fortunate enough to meet Jane too !!

Everything you need for comfort and convenience. Jane the owner is very thoughtful and provides everything from ironing board and iron to dishwasher. Located away from the town of Creiff but within walking distance up an incline. Lovely place.

Charming, cozy, convenient

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ivy Cottage in Crieff — that conservatory! Jane has made a beautifully one-of-a-kind home, anticipating everything a traveler could need or want. A lovely bedroom with a view of the garden, and so nice to have the little half-bath upstairs next to the bedroom so we didn't have to venture down at night. We enjoyed walks along the river, to the Coop grocery, to The Meadows Inn for a drink or dinner — but most evenings, we cooked at home and ate in the conservatory to watch night fall on the garden. And coffee and breakfast there every morning, too. Highlights in area: walking followed by tea at Comrie Croft; Sunday roast at Deil's Cauldron in Comrie; Drummond Castle Gardens and woods walk; Dundee museums, Verdant Works and the Discovery ship. Ivy Cottage was a wonderful week in Scotland!

Owner's Response: Thank you Judy, for your kind words about Ivy cottage. Even when I am cleaning the cottage I sit having my coffee break in the conservatory.
