About george penny

Morag and I are both keen golfers and enjoy being members of Crieff Golf Club. We have enjoyed playing many of the golf courses that are in this part of the world.

Both of us were born in Crieff and spent most of our working careers in and around Crieff.

We have spent many enjoyable holidays renting apartments or villas in the UK, Europe and Florida and think that we have brought these experiences back to our holiday home and provide you with the level of comfort that will make your stay here an absolute pleasure.

george penny purchased this bungalow in 1977

Why george penny chose Perthshire

This location is one of the most desirable locations in the Crieff area, situated in a peaceful spot and less than a mile from the attractive tourist town of Crieff. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the countryside.

What makes this bungalow unique

We enjoy the open spaces, the peace and quiet and being able to take our Golden Retrievers, Barney & Buddy long walks round this wonderful part of Perthshire.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property and our holiday has been so relaxing. The house is wonderful - comfortable with everything you could ever need. The views are beautiful and at night we would settle in with a lovely warm fire - perfect! Our thanks to Morag and George for their wonderful hospitality and generosity - the boys loved playing with Barney and Buddy and we all had a great holiday. Can't recommend this property highly enough.

A* Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best property we have ever stayed in. It is lovely and spacious, very clean and extremely well-equipped. The gardens and grounds are a delight, as is the wildlife; from the sunroom window, we saw a stoat, 2 deer, and a buzzard landed on the lawn! The owners are very friendly and helpful and the welcome gifts were very much appreciated. I want to live there! Thankyou so much for a lovely holiday.

Fantastic Luxury Holiday Property with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a brilliant week's stay at Little Braidhaugh. We were delighted with this beautiful property and its surrounding grounds and views. The owners, George and Morag, were extremely helpful and we cannot praise their hospitality enough. They were the perfect hosts and were very generous both with their time (helping us with endless genealogy questions) and their lovely, and much appreciated, welcome gifts. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and had everything that you could possibly need plus much more. It really is a luxurious property. We will certainly come back here again and would strongly recommend it to family and friends.
