    About this property

    Thimblewynd: "best in Scotland With Hot Tub"

    Historic cottage in Perth with hot tub
    Thimblewynd holiday rental has been described as one of the "best in Scotland with hot tub" (The Scotsman Newspaper). Born in 1860, Thimblewynd is a C-Listed period cottage found in the historic village of Dunning, Perthshire. Thimblewynd has grown into a luxury romantic hideaway with plenty of benefits. Secluded Hot tub experience? Yes. Log Burner? Yes. Gastropub on the corner? Yes. Village shop at the bottom of the street? Yes that as well. We are chuffed to have Thimblewynd in our lives and are delighted to share it with you. It's a place that just feels right and a huge investment has been taken to ensure it has everything a couple may need to enjoy a special time together (hot tub, log fire, smart tv, wifi, record player, board games...) Reviews show that while guests enjoy a real sense of seclusion and getting away from it all, they also enjoy all the amenities of our village location. The local shop is incredibly well stocked and perfectly situated should you have forgotten to bring an everyday (or romantic) essential. What is particularly unique is our secluded walled garden. In the sunshine you can enjoy the hammock and bbq. In Scotland we all know you can't guarantee the weather, so we have installed covered areas to let you enjoy the space no matter what. The hot tub remains uncovered to let you star gaze together. It's pretty special. Inside, it continues to be about luxury and being together. The kitchen is fully equipped. The living space is cosy and full of stuff to do. Wifi (obviously), board games, books, a vinyl record player with LPs (or bring your own) and Smart TV (easily link to your netflix or amazon prime account). The log burner is always a hit. Upstairs you find the large bedroom, with king-size brass bed, shuttered windows and a beautiful view. The ensuite bathroom includes a drench shower, towels, robes and organic bath products.

              Fantastic cottage

              Just returned from an amazing 2 nights in this great little cottage. The garden and hot tub are fantastic. The village is lovely and the pub serves great food. Realy enjoyed our time there. We only had one problem - our stay was over too quickly. Can't wait to return.
