All six of us really enjoyed our stay in The Nurse's Cottage

It was the best house for a holiday we ever had. We love how you have styled the house Margo & Jim.

Thank you for not keeping this perfect place to yourselves!!

We will take a twin of the door stopper cow home with us, and our children think the pizza at Delivino's is more than great.

An auspicious chain of events….

led to our stay at The Nurse's Cottage. Clearly this was meant to be and we fell in love with the house, which became our home from the first moment we saw it.

Jim & Margo have been amazing and have paid so much attention to detail in making the cottage a great place to be to explore the lovely Comrie area and make great memories.

We love it so much that we have already booked to come back in September for Irina's 8th birthday - she wants a crocodile in the garden (sorry, we can't supply that !!).

Thank you for a great time

Best rental ever. Perfect location for visitor to Scotland.

We stayed here for 4 nights to attend a wedding at Comrie Croft which was only 1-2 miles away. 6 adults and 1 infant.

The owners have thought of everything that you might need. Plus more - e.g. smoothie maker, Dolce Gusto coffee maker, 5 bikes, golf clubs, gas barbecue. Even Netflix on TV, PS4 and Sonos/Spotify music system throughout the house.

No problems supplying a travel cot and high chair for the granddaughter. The owners are very helpful, have thought of everything and provide lots of information. All equipment and furnishings in the cottage are of high quality. Comfortable beds. Nice linen. The showers in the bathrooms are brilliant. Fresh flowers and small welcome hamper ready for your arrival along with the essential condiments, oils etc that you would normally forget to bring from home.

We were able to park 3 cars in the driveway without difficulty. The garden was lovely with sunny seating for 6 and the BBQ all set up.

And as for the location! Up a small lane at the end of which there are great, easily accessible walks beside the river or round the back of the village. The village itself is ideal. Enough in the way of shops for necessities and for eating out. Crieff, a bigger town, is only 6 miles away. There is plenty to do in this area apart from the stunning scenery.

For the first time visitor especially, this is a great centre for visiting Scotland. Edinburgh, Glasgow, Oban, St Andrews and Inverness all within striking distance. And unlike many places in Scotland you wouldn’t have to go up and down the same road to get anywhere. It would even be feasible to come here without a car as there are regular buses from Perth.

Having stayed at numerous holiday rentals in the U.K. and abroad we can honestly say that this was probably the best. It just ticked all the boxes.

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay!!

Your household is truly exemplary, comfortable and furnished with great taste.

Thanks to this we managed in 7 days to explore and sightsee many of the iconic landmarks in Scotland and in the cities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and Inverness.

Thank you very much for the wonderful stay!

Xmas 2017 / Grandma's 82nd Birthday !

Our family group stayed for Xmas week 2017 as part of a large family gathering.

We rented three premises and all agreed Nurses Cottage the best.

Well appointed, friendly informative owners and lots of little touches make it THE holiday cottage to stay in Comrie.

Welcome pack, Sonos equipped, play station, modern wood burner to name a few attractions, discover the rest yourselves!.

Oh and dog & baby friendly as well with our 6month old grandson trying out and approving cot & high chair.

Thank you Margo and Jim for a 5 star stay and many happy memories

Second Visit

This was our 2nd stay at Nurses cottage this year and was just as fabulous as our first stay.

Run out of good things to say about this little piece of perfection.

With beautiful countryside walks and Munros to climb (we managed Ben Chonzie) on this visit. We managed this with two teenagers and our Hungarian Vizla.

The cottage itself was still as beautiful and well equipped with everything you could ever need.

We will definitely be returning in 2018.

Made all of us feel very comfortable staying here. Location is great with travel to east or west Scotland within easy reach.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here!

We came for a wedding at Comrie Croft!
A wonderful place to stay. Fantastic “find”. Beautiful cottage – perfect and appreciated by all. Décor & furnishings exquisite! Well equipped. Everything perfect. The dog (and us) loved the garden. We even managed to site out a few times in the garden. Loved and appreciated the “Welcome Pack’ and flowers.

Thank you both!! Would love to come back – again and again…

A lovely cottage

I definitely recommend The Nurses Cottage.
On arrival, we were greeted with lovely flowers and a hamper containing delicious goodies. Decorated beautifully and spotlessly clean, very well equipped. Cannot fault it, lots of thought and attention to detail by Jim and Margo, from the bikes, golf clubs, books, maps, DVD's, Sonos music system.... the list goes on.

My 6-year daughter loved the snug area and the garden, she didn't want to leave (nor did I). My Mum celebrated her birthday while we were there and she thoroughly enjoyed her stay.

The area has so much to offer, the walking maps came in very handy and I even managed to drag my other half up Ben Chonzie!! We look forward to a return visit in the near future.

Surpassed all of our expectations.
The welcome pack was a lovely thoughtful touch. Agree with everyone else, you really have thought of everything.

Homely, relaxing, beautifully decorated, amazing setting; we want to move in here for good.

Will recommend highly and hope to return soon.

The perfect home from home! Highly recommend!
What an absolute gem of a location and cottage!
Spent 4 nights there with my family recently and cannot express how luxurious and comfortable the cottage is. The owners have absolutely thought of everything and we wanted for nothing!

Their generosity also meant that we had the use of the bikes and golf clubs in the garage which we took full advantage of as the local walks and bike rides are on your doorstep and so beautiful. Comrie is a sleepy wee village with a lovely feel to it but we were centrally located for so many other places it was difficult to decide where to go first!

Thank you so much Jim and Margo for providing such a beautifully and well-appointed cottage - it really did feel like our home from home - the welcome pack and flowers were such a lovely touch too!

We are just back from a wonderful stay at The Nurses Cottage, Comrie
The decor, attention to detail & high standard of furnishings are exceptional, beautiful art all over the house, fabulous interior design but with a serious comfort factor included, a really well-equipped kitchen & super beds.

The location is ideal, Comrie has some lovely cafes & shops & great walks straight from the house. I would really like to keep it a secret but it's so good I just had to share

We had a lovely stay at the Nurses Cottage.
We couldn't have asked for more. The cottage has everything you need and more to make the stay very comfortable, and we settled in very well. Loved the access to the private garden which was great for us with our pups and the walk around the beautiful woods literally 5 minutes from the cottage were a bonus. Would definitely recommend staying here, lovely location with great scenery around and a beautiful cottage.

Fantastic cottage
My two teenage girls, myself and my dog stayed in the Nurses Cottage for four nights for a wee cheeky break. I would return in a shot! The Cottage is extremely well kitted out and I couldn't think of anything that wasn't provided. The Cottage is finished to a high standard and I couldn't find fault with any of the rooms, the bathrooms have showers that are out of this world!! The welcome pack was a lovely touch too.

My girls were delighted with the PS4, Sonos and very quick Wi-Fi - teenager’s heaven.

The Cottage is very well situated in the village beside some beautiful walks and close to the hotels for a nice meal. Comrie also has some lovely independent shops especially Hansen's Deli and the bakers. We had a meal at Delivino in Crieff too and their food was fantastic.

All in all, we had a lovely, stress free break and I would highly recommend the Nurses Cottage.

We have just spent the Easter weekend at The Nurses Cottage and all had an amazing time.
The decor is bright, fresh and also very homely. The cottage was very well equipped and we wanted for nothing during our stay. The welcome pack was a lovely gesture and very well received.... thank you. My wife particularly loved the top landing chair, relaxing with a book while our two kids (11 & 14) loved the Sonos music system and PS4. I particularly liked the log burning stove which warmed the place up lovely after a day out hillwalking up the Deils Cauldron. The garden is well presented and very dog friendly.

Both Jim & Margo (owners) local knowledge of the area was gratefully received, recommending great walks to great eating places. Comrie itself is a beautiful village with lots to offer with lots of great walks for our Vizla Roxi. We all enjoyed our stay so much that we will definitely be back.
Facebook & TripAdvisor April 2017
The girls and I wanted to get away and The Nurse’s Cottage seemed to tick all the boxes.

We planned to climb Ben Chonzie but the weather wasn’t on our side. Instead, we did the circular 8-mile route around Comrie leading us through beautiful forest tracks. One afternoon we strolled down to the Deil & enjoyed a coffee & fancy cake. The cottage catered very well to all our requirements and exceeded our expectations. It is within easy commute whether driving driving, walking or cycling to many scenic locations. We enjoyed a cosy night in listening to music on the Sonos as well as an amazing meal in Crieff. The bedrooms are very comfortable, the cottage is so cosy and extremely well equipped.
We will definitely be back.

Perfect peaceful haven
We were very fortunate to be the first guests at this beautiful cottage. It has recently been completely renovated and is finished to a very high standard. The decor is beautiful throughout and
a great deal of thought has been given to guest comfort. There were six of us in our party (4 adults, which included my husband and myself, my parents who are both in their eighties and our two children aged 13 and 10). The house very comfortably catered for us all with everyone having plenty of personal space.

We cooked several meals in the house and the kitchen is very well equipped. The dining room table was perfect both for eating together and for playing board games. There are lots of beautiful games in the house. As it was November, it was dark early but the wood burning stove made the house very cosy. We also used the pellet burner in the downstairs hall which meant the whole house was lovely and warm.

The chaise on the upper landing is an absolute delight as was the luxurious bathroom. The downstairs shower room was perfect for my parents and is likewise finished to a very high standard.

We only stayed two nights and will definitely be returning to extend the time we have to fully appreciate the house and the surrounding area.

We would highly recommend Nurses Cottage.

Amazing place to stay

Just returned from 4 nights at the Nurses cottage.

Amazing place and space. Comrie is a little chocolate box village with fantastic surrounding area for walks & bike rides.

Ideal base to explore Scotland also.

We've stayed in some great places all over the world but the cottage is one of the best places we have ever stayed.

Furnished to a really high standard with EVERYTHING , yes everything you could want or need. Amazingly clean throughout.

Beautiful garden area where we were lucky enough to have the weather to have a barbecue.

Would absolutely recommend to anyone and will definitely be looking at returning.

the welcome pack was a lovely surprise and yummy !!

It was a great place to spend quality family time together and for our baby's first birthday.

We went on lots of nice walks and bike rides (using the bikes provided in the garage) and visited Auchengarack Wildlife Centre. There is plenty to do and see and the enclosed garden was great for the kids and dog.

We also managed a cheeky BBQ as the sun was out the full weekend. Would recommend Macrosty Park in Crieff.

Thank you… would love to come back.

Just returned from 4 nights at The Nurses Cottage and can't wait to return!

The cottage itself is just perfect. Beautifully decorated, well equipped and very comfortable and cosy.

The Play Station 4, Sonos sound system and log burner were well used! There's a safe garden for kids to play in and the cottage itself is situated in a quiet lane just off the main street.

Comrie itself is a lovely little village with everything you need on your doorstep. We visited the nearby Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre which was great for the kids. There's a little skate park just along from the cottage and a good large play area in MacRosty Park in Crieff.

This was definitely the nicest self catering accommodation we've used. Very clean (you'd never know pets had been there) and comfortable.

Thanks for having us!

Can't recommend this cottage enough. Absolute 5 star.

Beautifully decorated with everything and more that a holiday cottage would need. The kids loved the snug area and playing under the stairs and the haggis book was a big hit!!!

The kitchen is brilliant and fully kitted out with everything you would need.

The cottage is spotlessly clean, comfy and cosy.

Communication with the owners has been so straight forward and they were really helpful. We were welcomed with some gifts that were greatly received and the welcome pack is well thought through.

Returned from a week’s Christmas with family.

The cottage itself is immaculate, beautifully decorated and feels like a home from home as we settled in instantly.

It is dog friendly cottage but you would never know as all guests have clearly been respectful

Lovely size garden and spotted a big bbq which would be great in warmer months.
Heating worked perfectly over the winters week with a gorgeous wood burner which was used daily.

We had a 6 month old with us and stayed in the upstairs bedroom which was spacious with its own ensuite. There was also a lounge chair at the top of the landing which could be used as a nursing chair if needed or for a chill out section to read a book.

Plenty of fun had with board games including a playstation which is separate to the main lounge. Sonos music system which can play upstairs and downstairs

Fully equiped kitchen plenty of pots, pans, plates, glasses & utensils

I am not a keen walker but there are many hill walks as well as flat ones to suit all.

The area its self is picturesque and the small
high street is on your door step which had all you need.

A gorgeous cottage in the heart of Comrie which we would highly recommend and will no doubt return in the future.

A great Cottage!!
Fab decor, has everything you need for a "home from home". We loved the walks near by in Comrie. This area is one of our favourite holiday places so we will be back. My two teenage sons appreciated the mod cons! A happy mixture of outdoors and indoors. A happy family time had by all.

We also love the local food spots!!

Very nice cottage in a village, but very quiet, great bed, soft and large towels, nice garden and bikes. Attention for the details in kitchen, flowers and hamper om the table, nice music facilities.

We do agree with everyone else...
After discovering the North of Scotland our last “base” before going home was “The Nurse’s Cottage”!

Great job Margo & Jim!! We especially appreciated the “Welcome Pack” and the flowers!
Good thing with the “Welcome Pack” is that you can stay at your new “Part time Home” and do not necessarily have to run for milk and bread for the next morning.

So many thanks, we had a great time at The Nurse’s Cottage in Comrie.

Charming cottage, beautifully decorated with all the creature comforts and more
There is so much to love about Nurse's cottage. We were four adults and one two-year-old.

Here are what we found to be the highlights (in no particular order): - The cottage is beautiful and impeccably decorated. It feels like home from the moment you step inside. Margo and Jim have thought of everything you could possibly need, and more. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances, tools, and crockery needed to cook just as you would at home. The entire house is furnished very comfortably, with large beds, places to lounge, luxurious showers and bathtub, and a pretty garden. - The cottage has everything you could want to entertain yourself at home - from Netflix, to a Sonos sound system hooked up to Spotify, to a PlayStation and board games. Also, plenty of books on the area, including a very helpful walking guide that was our bible.

Margo and Jim were very communicative and helpful. We received an immediate response when we had a question on where to find something in the cottage. - As hosts, they went above and beyond, providing fresh bread, jams and milk for our arrival. And a lovely surprise of the most beautiful flowers in a vase when we arrived!

Comrie itself is a charming little village with two small grocery stores open late, an excellent butcher and a deli with great bread, delicious prepared meals and all sorts of other goodies. Also a short drive to Barley Bree restaurant in Muthill which we went to on Margo and Jim's recommendation - it was excellent! Nurse's Cottage was a great location from which to explore this magical countryside. We hope to be back someday.

Beautiful, clean and spacious cottage in ideal location
Just returned from a long weekend with our two dogs. Nurses cottage is beautifully done up, spacious and spotlessly clean. A lovely welcome gift of coffee, flowers, biscuits, milk and bread awaited us on our arrival.

The cottage is well equipped with Sonos speakers, a kindle and PlayStation. Lovely wood burners which are easy to use, kitchen equipped with everything you will need for your stay.

The garden (both front and back) is fully enclosed and perfect for dogs or children. At the end of the lane is a fabulous walk and at other end of the lane, a dog friendly pub (the Comrie hotel) with beer garden! Ideal location in the village but down a quiet lane. We loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage. We will return.

Stunning, cosy, well equipped cottage with a very modern feel in an ideal location.
My girlfriends and I recently had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic cottage. The cottage was the perfect getaway base we all needed with all the amenities we required.

We are all quite keen walkers and managed out for a fair few miles over our stay. The heating in the cottage is easy to control so on our return we were always welcomed back to a cosy cottage. The shower is powerful and hot water is produced on demand.

There are shops, a bistro and bars within easy walking distance and also fine restaurants available close by.

On the night we choose to stay in we used the very well equipped kitchen and settled in for a night of chat while the Sonos played our requested playlists.

I would have no hesitation recommending the accommodation. It is a first class holiday rental and extremely well equipped with a real homely feel.

I would hope to return in the future.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nurse’s Cottage.
Comrie is a place we usually just drive through so it was lovely to explore the town and walk in the surrounding countryside. So full of lovely places to visit. Perthshire really does have so much to offer and Comrie is a fantastic base. The cottage is superb!! Warming wood burner in the lounge – plus a pellet burner that throws off a welcome heat to all quarters. Love the quirky areas that add a special feature to this truly immaculate cottage.
