|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Horsey Reach House is a modern, architect designed, home. Beautifully appointed, it provides a comfortable, relaxing setting and offers everything you could wish for and more - wood-burning stove, outdoor hot-tub, fully appointed kitchen with plenty of fridge space (including a wine fridge) and 2 dishwashers and in the living room there is a well stocked library, a 60" flat-screen TV with SKY+ HD, WiFi, Bose Sound system and docking station, games and jigsaws and views of the Tay that would take your breath away!
It's open plan living space makes it the ideal venue for family reunions and groups of friends. Its location, whilst only an hour from Edinburgh and Glasgow, still feels very rural and is ideal for walking, fishing, golfing, exploring the sights of beautiful Perthshire, shopping and dining in Perth itself or even just chilling and watching the river go by!
Both properties sit high on the banks of the River Tay with stunning views. Located on the outskirts of the small village of Stanley, 7 miles north of Perth. Horsey Reach House sleeps 12 people in 6 double bedrooms all with ensuite facilities. Horsey Reach Lodge sleeps 6 people in 3 bedrooms, one which has an ensuite shower-room and there is a shared bathroom. Both properties have outdoor hot-tubs and wood-burning stoves.
I'm from Glasgow and Jim, my husband, is from Ayrshire. We first starting coming to Perthshire through Jim's love of fishing, and the River Tay. The first time I visited as an adult, I just fell in love with it. The light is special and the countryside is just breathtaking.
We ran the properties from Ayrshire for a few years, but now live in the village. We love living here and it means I can concentrate on the properties and looking after them much more easily as they are on the doorstep.

We love Perthshire in general - the scenery, its proximity to major cities - and for us living in Ayrshire, it was only a couple of hours away.
And we fell in love with the views, first and foremost and the house as well.
We rebuilt it in 2010 - adding an upstairs, giving all the bedrooms ensuite bathrooms, and opening up the living, kitchen area.
We built the lodge in 2009 - we felt the garden was crying out to be used and decided on a Finlodge - loved the shape of it, the privacy of the upstairs balcony - with those views. And it fits into the scenery perfectly.
The first thing you notice when you walk into the house and the lodge, is the view of the river.
There is a lovely feel to both properties, and although we can't put our finger on it, we think it comes from the river - you can see if from every room and hear it as well.
We take an initial deposit of £500 for the house and £200 for the lodge to secure your booking, with the balance payable 8 weeks prior to your stay.
A damage deposit is payable 1 week prior to your stay, which is returned within 14 days of your departure.
During our peak season, from the start of July to end of October, changeover day is a Sunday. We can be more flexible during the rest of the year.
