"A Little Gem"
We have just come back from a week in Crieff staying at Ivy Cottage. A magical autumnal break for us with the colours of the trees in the surrounding area stunning. What can I say that hasn't been said already! Ivy Cottage is indeed an adorable gem set in an idyllic setting. Jane has thought of everything to make your holiday perfection. The supplying of the bedding, towels and all linen as well as the tea, coffee, sugar and all other kitchen fare, toiletries,cleaning goods the list is endless. Apart from the excellent white goods in the kitchen there was a fantastic range cooker and even a bread machine which we used and my partner makes his own bread at home which he just loves. We have stayed many times in self catering accommodation for many many years and have never had such quality as Jane has provided for all her guests. This cottage is so cosy and even though our weather was poor it did not stop us from sitting having a cuppa in the conservatory enjoying the peace and just listening to the bird song. We even fed 2 large white horses at the bottom of the lane daily which they loved. We will certainly be back to stay in Ivy Cottage. A joyous time for us. Once again thank you Jane.
Response to review:
Honestly, what can I say apart from thank you so much for writing such a glowing reveiw, and I am glad that you chose ivy cottage for your birthday treat. Take care it was nice to meet you both, and look forward to seeing you again. Regards jane

Just to say many many thanks for letting us into your adorable cottage. We had a wonderful week (even if the weather was unkind to us) it didn't take away the magical feel of Ivy Cottage. We visited the Beatrix Potter Experience after seeing your upstairs loo a place I have wanted to visit many times (B.Potters Experience not the loo !!!) My wee grand-daughter Ellie is 4 and has just started school and I have been buying her the books since she was 2 and she now has almost the whole collection.
Once again thank you and hope to see you next year.

A return visit & another lovely, relaxing break. Within a couple of hours of arriving we felt completely at home. As we keep telling everybody, Ivy Cottage has the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! Thanks Jane, we'll be back.

We have just spent a marvellous week at Ivy Cottage. We appreciated the fact that even though we arrived late, we found Jane waiting to welcome us.
The cottage was very clean and cosy and had all the stuff one would need to make his stay so enjoyable. The immediate neighbourhood is quite and parking not a problem. The cottage is close to all sorts of shops and restaurants/take aways. It is perfectly situated for touring the many beautiful glens, lochs, castles and all other attractions the Highlands have to offer. For example, in one day, we toured Glen Lyon and even had time to hike ¾ up the way on Ben Lawers in the afternoon.
The only problem was not having more time on our hands and we would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone who is thinking of visiting the area

We stayed at Ivy Cottage for Christmas and New Year 2010. The cottage is quaint, cosy and very well equipped for the cold frosty snowy weather we had! We had a brilliant time - great walks for the dogs and lots to do in Crieff and the surrounds at this time of year. Thank you Jane, we much appreciated your personal care.
We have been coming to Ivy Cottage for a number of years, (in spring, summer, autumn and winter). The cottage is always warm and welcoming and the garden is an added attraction. The surrounding countryside is spectacular. A large variety of walks can be enjoyed without even resorting to taking the car.It's always a pleasure to meet Jane and enjoy a chat - she has become a dear friend over the years and her kindness in so many ways is exceptional.

Would you be able to add that following extract from us.
" Google maps expertly guided us to the delightfully quaint Ivy Cottage just over the River Earn on the outskirts of Crieff. We were warmly welcomed by out hostess Jane and loved the warmth after the cottage especially after the 30 hour flight from Australia. The upstairs bedroom was beautifully presented and from the start we felt at home in the living room where we spent much of our time with its adjoining bathroom and kitchen. However the area we loved was the glassed in conservatory where we enjoyed many breakfasts and dinner relaxing with a glass of wine (not breakfast!!) overlooking the beautifully kept garden. A great start to our overseas holiday. Crieff is centrally situated so we enjoyed many day trips." Carolyn and Max (Australia)

"jane...it was lovely to meet you.. thankyou you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage,..it was a joy ..we didn't want to leave".. daniel and rebecca..aug 2010
We really enjoyed our week in Crieff, especially as we were so lucky with the weather. The cottage was very comfortable, and is ideally situated for touring the area. We would certainly recommend it to our friends,with dogs as not many places are doggie friendly. It was nice meeting you and if we return to the area we will certainly consider staying in Ivy Cottage
