“Beautiful thatched cottage in quiet village, clean, convenient, wonderful!”

This little cottage is an absolute beauty, has lovely rooms and really everything one needs. It's in a nice quiet location but Dundee and Perth are easy to reach. The owners are wonderful people! Our next stay in this area will definitely be at Fernbank Cottage again.

“Amazing cottage.”

Our 4th stay at Fernbank - we keep coming back as Pamela and family are wonderful hosts. This year we found the addition of wi-fi most welcome , it was most useful googling ideas for days out that weren't included in the leaflets folder.
The cottage is set in a peaceful location - a welcome change from noisy traffic. Having rented many cottages over the years we look forward to our stays here as we know how cosy it is in the evenings, snuggling to sleep under a thatched roof.
Everyone should stay here - Sheena , Fraser and Pamela are the friendliest people we know.

“Cosy cottage escape in an ideal location.”

Stayed in Fernbank cottage for a short break in October with the dog. Received a warm welcome from the owners soon after arrival and settled in very quickly. Cottage is in an ideal location to explore the surrounding area of which there is plenty to see and provides a great retreat after spending the day out and about. Lovely big garden and field across from the cottage for the dog to enjoy and a wee walk up to the nearby castle. Overall the cottage is lovely and reasonably priced for the accommodation provided, would love to visit again when the weather is a wee bit warmer.

“Wonderful cottage is quiet peaceful location”

My wife and I used Fernbank Cottage, during our recent holiday in Scotland. Although an old stone cottage it has been tastefully renovated. It was spotlessly clean, very well appointed, quiet, slightly off the beaten track, yet close to all the things we had planned to do during our week in the area (Perth, Stirling Castle, St Andrews, Dundee, Scone Palace and wonderful unspoilt walking in the woods around Dunkeld). A wonderful base for us to use. We shall certainly recommend Fernbank to our friends and who knowns perhaps we shall look to use it again ourselves if we come back to the Perth area again.

Thank you for such a lovely comment. We like to make our guests as comfortable as possible and we do love the old village atmosphere of Rait too (we're biased of course!) We hope to welcome you back to Fernbank in the future!
