“Highly Recommend! - Book here!!"”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed at the cottage this summer with my 2 children, and I cannot fault the experience, everything was just perfect! The location is stunning. The cottage has everything you need and more! The views are amazing! It was so beautiful sitting in the hot-tub enjoying the views of the river and watching the sun go down. We loved the outdoor fire, which kept us lovely and warm, whilst we enjoyed our BBQ. There is lots to do in the area, and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. We will definitely be booking for next year! Thank you again, John and Ursula, see you next year!

“Amazing getaway”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The setting and scenery of this cottage is absolutely stunning! After staying in B&B type accommodations all over the world, the hospitality shown by John is the best I've seen. The attention to detail and commitment to making us comfortable and ensuring we had a great stay was truly terrific. Had a great time fishing and sampling many a dram! Will be recommending to any friends travelling to Scotland and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thanks John.

Hi- Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. I am flattered by your kind words. Providing the best hospitality possible is our number one aim and ensuring that we meet peoples' expectations if not exceed them. Well done with the fishing-you caught some cracking size trout.
Unfortunately the internet is slow due to old lines in the countryside. Hopefully in the future the network will be upgraded. In the meantime we will install a stronger router and see if this helps a wee bit.
Hopefully we will see you again in the near future
Kind regards
John and ursula

“Peace perfect peace!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a fabulous 4 night stay at this beautiful cottage. On arrival we were given a hearty welcome by John who was friendly, helpful and professional. It was clear from the outset that John's intention was to make the experience memorable and special. The cottage is charming, tastefully decorated and an ideal 'getaway' retreat. Our hosts have tried really hard to make the stay as comfortable as possible as we wanted for nothing. We loved the hot tub and our son especially enjoyed long walks exploring the countryside with his Dad in the evenings. The setting is stunning and the village is only a few miles drive away. We hope to return in the future and thank you again John for a lovely stay at your beautiful cottage. Peter & Aileen (and Chris)

Just returned for from a three day break at The Ferry House. Everything we had hoped for/expected. Hot tub - great views of the River Tay. Didn't use the outdoor wood-fired sauna or the stone fire-pit - we'll leave this for a return in the autumn or winter. Peaceful location but only 5 minutes from Aberfeldy. Good restaurant, Ailean Chraggan, 2 miles from cottage at main road junction. Bikes available at cottage. Highly recommended for a couple's break, or for two couples sharing.

“Totally relaxing in a fantastic setting”

We have just spent six very enjoyable nights at The Ferry House and came away feeling totally relaxed. John & Ursula have worked hard to create a very special home from home but with some fantastic touches. The hot tub & sauna overlooking the river were a real treat and a great place to unwind after a days' walking (there are some great walks for all abilities on the doorstep). We rarely visit the same place twice (on the basis that there are so many new places to see) but I'm confident that we will be back at some point to this beautiful cottage.

“Perfect location and facilities, lovely relaxing break.”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Beautiful cottage on the banks of the river Tay, hot tub and sauna were a touch of luxury after a day of exploring the surrounding area. Cottage itself is very comfortable with all the facilities you need plus more. John and Ursula were very welcoming, were on hand if needed but respected your privacy.

Would recommend the Birks Cinema on a rainy day and the Birks of Aberfeldy for a glorious walk on a dry day!

For food there is a nice restaurant at the end of the road before you turn to Aberfeldy (can't remember the name), the Good Food Takeaway in Aberfeldy is a must if you like pizza. Lovatt Cooking delivered us a very lovely home cooked meal to the cottage, fabulous service and value for money.

Will definately go back, a hidden gem.

Hi- thank you for your lovely review and we are glad you enjoyed the outdoor sauna and hot tub.
We are also happy that you enjoyed the food from Lovat cooking run by Annie- she cooks delicious hearty meals and it has proved very popular. Always nice to come back from a days' activity and have nice food waiting for you.
Thank you for your custom and we hope to see you both again in the near future
