The Studio Apartment
Beautifully decorated throughout with every amenity, it is a bright airy open plan space with stunning views. Although it is attached to our own residence it is completely private and independent.
In the heart of Perthshire in the small village of Dunning sit The Doocot and The Studio, two bespoke and individual properties providing luxury accommodation for couples.
The setting is idyllic, surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland, looking over fields, a golf course and up into the Ochil Hills.
They are situated minutes from the A9 (Scotland's main artery road) so immediately accessible for Edinburgh, Glasgow, The Highlands and The East Neuk of Fife. Both properties are designed to help you unwind, relax and enjoy every moment. It's the perfect place to spend a romantic weekend, a short break or ideally take a longer time so you can fully explore the surrounding area and beyond.
It's a great place to recharge your batteries so that you can leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and energised.
The Doocot is a delightful and secluded cottage, set in woodland beside an 18th century Doocot. It sits in the tranquil grounds of our own home, far away at the opposite end of the garden with our woodland on one side and well kept garden on the other. You can relax on the patio, recline on the outdoor furniture and look endlessly out over the fields and golf course watching the local wildlife come and go - red squirrels, woodpeckers and even the odd deer. A beautifully peaceful spot.
The Studio is a bright airy open space, tastefully decorated and with every comfort thought of. It is attached to our own home but completely independent with it's own front door and a south facing sun trap of a private garden - if you want to relax overlooking fields and hills then this is the place. A wonderfully romantic bolt hole with every amenity and complete privacy. .
The conservation and historical village of Dunning is in the centre of rural Perthshire.
We are proud to be home to the 13th century St Serfs Church with the rare and very impressive 8th century Dupplin Cross and some ancient woodland which was once the site 1st century roman camp while just outside the village is Maggie Wall's monument, the site of the last witch ever burnt in Scotland in 1657. St Serf is even reputed to have killed a dragon here ...
We are just 15 minutes from Perth and the magnificent Scone Palace and about 20 minutes from Innerpeffray Library (Scotland's first free public lending library) and Drummond Castle with it's wonderful gardens.
Within the village The Kirkstyle Inn provides delicious bar meals and evening meals in their dining room while The Dunning Hotel does the same but also has live music during the summer. There is also a small grocers and post office in the village and within a few miles is the world renowned Gleneagles Hotel.
