The Old Brewhouse is a well built Victorian building, a cottage-like wing of the main house, converted in 2000 by renowned architects, retaining many original features. This comfortable and charming cottage sleeps 4 and is on the peaceful Bamff Estate and ideal for holidays and short breaks, surrounded by wildlife and walking routes.
The Old Brewhouse has 2 bedrooms, 1 double, and 1 twin, (which can be converted into a super kingsize on request), a dining room – which can be converted to a single bedroom on request (with comfortable z-bed), a sitting room with wood burning stove, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with bath/shower, and a porch with washing machine and deep freeze.
The cottage is warm and cosy and ideal at any time of year and is available for short breaks – half weeks, and week-ends – even single nights on occasion. Please ask for prices. Please arrive after 4pm and leave by 10am. If you want to order in shopping or meals please ask advice.
Linen and towels are provided. Electricity is included in the price along with central heating provided by our new wood-chip district heating system. Two bags of logs are provided per week, one bag of logs per short break. Extra logs can be purchased from the estate at £5 a bag.
The Old Brewhouse is a great base for exploring the Cateran Trail, the 64 mile waymarked circular walk through Highland Perthshire and the Angus Glens, featured in Observer Magazine’s 10 best long-distance walks in UK. The Trail passes right through the estate, just down the road from the house. We can arrange transport to and from any other sections of the trail. You can also choose to walk two different circular routes on the grounds approximately 1-2 miles long or go up our little hill, Balduff – a good practice hill for would be Munro-baggers – just an hour up to the top with wonderful views of the surrounding country. There are plenty of Munros and Corbetts in the surrounding area as well, if that’s your bag. Or if birds are your thing then Loch of the Lowes and Kinnordy are just a wingbeat away by car. Alyth also has a popular bike track for off road cyclists.
Note for dog owners:
Bamff estate is both a rewilding project and farm – in all areas there are roaming livestock and dogs must therefore be kept on leads at all times, except in any self contained garden belonging to the holiday accommodation. Unfortunately the Old Brewhouse doesn’t have a garden of its own, and whilst they are welcome, it is not so suitable for dogs to roam immediately outside without being kept on a leash, unlike the other Bamff cottages.
