We went with 8 friends for a birthday celebration. The house was very well equipped and they gifted us with a generous starter hamper.
Everything in the house was perfect.
My boyfriend John had organised a surprise weekend trip to this house for us and a group of friends and we honestly can’t think of a single flaw about this beautiful home.
We had a wonderful arrival with the fireplaces lit, complimentary flowers/other treats and last but not least Fiona at the front door with a welcoming smile followed by a tour of the house.
We had such a relaxing time with the most immaculate rooms and everything we could possibly need already there!
Although there was a huge book with all the details of lots of places we could go to, we never wanted to leave the house. We all made very good use of the hot tub and hut at the bottom of the garden as well as the kitchen as there was more than enough room to make a huge feast for all 11 of us.
Perhaps if we had to think of something, it would be to put a sign for the house on the main road before turning up the lane, as a couple of friends struggled to find the house as it is hidden away.
However, we would highly recommend this house to anyone as we had a perfect weekend and felt extremely lucky to have found such a great place to spend it. We are now wanting to make this house an annual getaway for us all!
A huge thank you to Fiona, William and his family for having us and making our trip so wonderful.
I am disappointed to find myself writing a negative report, when all previous reports I had read helped me choose Gamefield for a recent trip with friends.
There were a number of issues with the accommodation and I brought these to the attention of the house manager, who I had arranged to meet when we were leaving. The owner was also there, so the house manager highlighted these to the owner. I was really disappointed with the owner’s reaction and totally unimpressed with the owner’s interpretation of how a businessman should deal with the issues we identified. The excuses and attitude were unacceptable. He intimated that we had rented the house at a reduced fee as it was the end of the season and the house would be in the poorest condition due to being rented out all season. My understanding is that the rates change due to it being a quieter time and low season not because you expect the house to be battered and bruised from the high season and no maintenance having been carried out throughout.
We left when the discussion was leading nowhere. We did receive an email the following day from the owner saying that they had taken our points on board and most had been rectified and that lessons had been learnt. We also received a partial refund, so the matter has been resolved, but it was a shame that the process was not dealt with in a professional manner, as this should not have been the most memorable part of the weekend.
A beautiful countryside house with adaptable accommodation and every last detail thought of.
The House was so well equipped, comfortable and luxurious that it was difficult to drag ourselves out to explore the wonderful countryside. Easy drive into Crieff for shops and only 5-10 minutes in the car from the Hydro.
The garden hot tub was a special treat - what is not to like soaking in the tub with a glass of champagne!
Any questions our group had were answered virtually immediately by the owners and House manager.
Enjoyed the trip so much we are thinking of booking for next year! Cannot recommend highly enough.
A great family holiday, we ranged in age from 3 to 85, everyone agreed that after 20 years of staying in beautiful houses all around the country for our yearly get together
Gamefield was up there with the best!
We will return
I booked 'Gamefield' for a long weekend to celebrate my partner Maggie's 'significant' birthday. Twelve of her nearest and dearest friends and relations helped us celebrate what was a truly memorable stay which will live long in the memory. All our guests are still raving about the unbeatable quality and ambience of the interiors to both the main house and to Indie House, the adjacent smaller out-building which was equally luxurious and which slept four of the guests.
I can't not comment on the way the team behind this place treated me. Courteous, efficient and prompt in response to any questions arising so thank you, merci and grazie mille to Tracey who does the organisation and to Wendy and William, the owners. If I come across as a bit 'gushy' about the place, no apologies. It's an absolute gem and not to be missed in this beautiful part of the world, whether you've got something to celebrate or not.
Great location near Crieff. Lots to do for all ages. The house is very spacious and extremely well equipped. The garden is peaceful and every window has a lovely view. So relaxing and particularly appealing summer house by hot tub. Any problem was tended to quickly by Tracey. Highly recommend.
