“Didn't want to leave.............”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

For the love of Jesus, l keep finding all these wee gems everywhere l go and just when l think l've found the best l am going to get, along comes one that is better.......no bad thing l suppose. This week we find ourselves up in the lovely Scotland, a place were l always feel at home, l love the people, l love the fishing, l love the scenery, l love the racing and most important for me, l love the Scottish potatoes.

The Courtyard came highly recommended on TA and so we booked, its easily found situated 2 mins of the A90 between Perth and Dundee. The location is perfect for exploring the local area and you can pop to either Dundee or Perth in approx. 15 mins, in terms of exploring the local area, we went to Dundee once for the Cinema which was easily found and the rest of our time was spent in Perth which was full of many different things to visit. I highly recommend Scone Palace for a visit and if you are up for the fishing season get out on the River Tay for a days fishing (£25 - £50), worth every penny as it is one of the best Salmon rivers in the world.

The accommodation at The Courtyard was excellent, spotless from top to bottom, comfy beds, great en-suite bathroom, nice settee, it had everything that is required for a short self catering break. We had a good sized fridge, a microwave and everything else that we needed to make ourselves right at home. One little thing that l have to mention as it was so unique to anywhere else l have stayed was the under floor heating in the bathroom, it was brilliant.

As l visit more and more of these types of holiday lettings l believe that the host/s are at least 40% of the deal, without a good host the package is not going to be complete, in some cases that means more to me than the quality of accommodation. In the case of The Courtyard you have two of the best l have met, you have hard working farmer Jim and his trusty springer "Donald" and then the Commander in Chief of the operation, Jim's lovely wife Omy. These two make a great team and you are made to feel comfortable from the minute your booking is made till the time your driving out of the yard. I have to admit with these two as my hosts l would have paid fifty quid to sleep in the shed with the oul springer and two of the chickens.

For all you Pet owners out there who are thinking of bringing a dog, it will be more than welcome and the walks around here for exercise are superb.

Finally l would like to encourage you to pick The Courtyard if you are in the area, it was an excellent choice for us and one l would recommend highly to anyone , l will most certainly return.

It's taken me a while to find time to write this review as we stopped overnight at the end of August on our way to John O'Groats for a trip to Orkney. It was great to have the space to relax and small kitchen area to be self sufficient then we opted for the B&B option so we had a hearty, tasty breakfast served up in the kitchen of the main house. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

Just had a lovely wee break at The Courtyard. Great accomodation with everything you need. Great location ideal for a visit to Perth or Dundee and freindly hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and we will be back again next year.

We stayed in one of the self-catering cottages for a week and we loved it. It was perfect for us as a couple, with a comfy bed, well-equipped kitchen and in general everything that we needed. The cottage was spotless clean and Omy is a perfect host. The place is well positioned, in a quiet place with a view on the hills, yet very close to the A90 and only few minutes to both Perth and Dundee.

After a long day of sightseeing and driving we were truly fortunate to find The Courtyard. We received a very warm welcome upon our late night arrival.
Our host was recovering from surgery so she let us know right away the normal hot breakfast would not be available. However, the "non-breakfast" she presented us with was amazing.

Our room was spacious - providing us with more than enough room for two.

In the light of the new day, we discovered the beauty of the surrounding countryside and the B&B . We wished we could have stayed another night, but new destinations beckoned.

Only stayed a night for a wedding nearby but had a great stay, room very nice and comfortable, tea, coffe and Wifi, could have stayed for a week! Breakfast in the morning was amazing and just what was required to banish the post wedding hangovers. Was a bit difficult to find initially, but after called and got great directions to find it no problems.

We were welcomed by friendly Omy. She owns the place and keeps it so clean and neat. The kitchen was in the cabinet! who would hv thought abt it?? Was a fantastic idea. The shower was great with high pressure. We had a 2 yr old baby and it was very safe to let him run around the beautiful spaciaous landscape. Although the location is rural, its still in an immediate access to Dundee and Perth. I would want to stay there again.
