Property code: CA066

Grand turreted house in a secluded spot amongst mature gardens and rolling hills, 3.5 miles from Dunblane.

The fantastic positioning of this enchanting house means that you can enjoy a truly secluded and peaceful break whilst within easy reach of some of Scotland's most iconic attractions, busy cities and breathtaking scenery. Head out mountain-biking, hill-walking or fishing, take a tour of a local distillery or drive out to Loch Lomond & The Trossachs (20 miles away) for a magical day trip. Edinburgh and Glasgow are both approximately 30 miles from the property if the metropolitan buzz is more your thing. If you'd prefer to stay closer to base, all of the amenities you'll need for a relaxing stay can be found in Dunblane (3.5 miles away) including an array of supermarkets, eateries and shops.


Inside, wooden furniture, patterned drapes, and rich colourful rugs give the house a warm and welcoming feel with a twist of elegance and sophistication. Enter on the ground floor and make your way into the well-equipped kitchen, complete with an Aga, induction hob, double electric oven and two dishwashers, making cooking here a breeze. Seating at the large island as well as a kitchen table makes it a comfortable space in which to socialise and spend time with one another while meals are prepared. Take your feast through to the cosy dining room where an open fire will keep you toasty while you eat. When tummies are full and the plates cleared away, it will be time to gather  in the west-facing conservatory to watch the sunset with a nightcap. There are spectacular views over the hills to be enjoyed from here, as well as from the first-floor drawing room, a well-lit and inviting room with a wood burner. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spread over all three floors of the property; there is a bathroom and a super king-size room on the ground floor, while on the first floor you'll find another super-king, a king-size, a family bathroom and the master bedroom. The master is super king-size and boasts its own dressing room and en-suite bathroom. Up on the second floor, there is a double, a twin and a single room that share use of another family bathroom. Please note that the downstairs super-king and master bedrooms can be made up as twin rooms by prior arrangement. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated with traditional soft furnishings and thoughtful touches.


Outside, light up the BBQ for an al fresco feast and enjoy evenings gathered under the stars in your spacious private garden. Garden furniture is provided, or take a rug down onto the lawn for sunny picnics while the children play among the trees. Dogs will adore the space to run around too.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
