Bolthole Cottage is a perfect retreat away from busy life! It's ideally situated in the countryside near Blairgowrie, but not too far away from local amenities. The cottage itself is furnished to a high standard throughout, sparklingly clean, and is set in the most stunning location. Our family of 4 (and pooch) loved our stay. David was helpful throughout the checkin process and during our stay, providing recommendations on walks and what to look out for locally. Stop reading this review now and just book it! :)

Staying at the cottage was like having a 5* hotel all to ourselves! The photos don't do it justice. David and Lesley have truly thought about everything - their attention to detail is outstanding.

Great stay

We had such a lovely time at the cottage and really enjoyed the setting and outside space as well as the wonderful cottage. There were some really thoughtful touches such as a note for our children and little quiz and present! It was so comfortable and relaxing there. We’re looking forward to coming back next year!

Perfect stay

Bolthole Cottage is perfect in every way! Beautiful house, fantastic location and excellent communication at all times. David was a wonderful host and we were so appreciative of the treats left upon our arrival (our pup was too!). We can’t wait to come back! Thank you David.

“David's Bolt hole Cottage is one of the best airbnbs we've experienced. The cottage is beautiful, very comfortable, well appointed and tastefully furnished. The location is spectacular and the hosts provided excellent advice on good walks and places to visit in the area. We'd highly recommend Bolthole Cottage, and hope to return ourselves.”

What an amazing New Year/Hogmanay week at stunning Bolt Hole Cottage! We could not fault this place or the hosts! The cottage was clean, cosy, spacious and well equipped. The wood burning stove was one of our favourite parts and used every night during our stay. The dogs loved running around and exploring the well kept gardens and we enjoyed the beautiful views & watching the sunrise on the clear, frosty mornings. David was on hand throughout our stay to answer any queries, he couldn't have been more helpful. David and Lesley have gone above and beyond to make the cottage a welcoming, home away from home. Thank you so much for sharing your special cottage with us, we can't wait to come back!

Abbie thank you so much for your very kind words. We are both so pleased you had a great stay and that everything at Bolthole worked for you. We’d be delighted to see you return. Many thanks once again.

Bonny Bolthole

With Scotland's predictably unpredictable weather, having a great place to cosy-in is vital for an outdoorsy holiday. Bolthole delivers this on every front. Fond as I am of Scotland's countryside, I had to drag myself away from Bolthole each day and couldn't wait to get back to enjoy all its adorable nooks. The upstairs gallery with its picture-perfect window framing the view of Strathardle and the Cairngorms was an absolute favourite but so was the sociable kitchen with three cute windows, and the luxurious lounge area, plus lots of well positioned garden benches meant we could catch the sun throughout the day while enjoying different angles on Boltholes many views and vistas. The cottage's great proximity to excellent walking opportunities is yet another USP. Can't wait to go back!
