Good Hotel Guide Review
Beneath the Ochil hills, Jane and Colin Kilgour’s secluded Georgian mansion is approached up a long driveway flanked by trees and fields, ten minutes’drive from the city. The carefully restored home (well documented, too, with records of everyone who has lived in it since it was built in 1746) has polished wood–floored bedrooms made homely with a bowl of fresh fruit and a handmade Harris tweed bed throw. There are board games and DVDs to borrow in the fire-warmed lounge; in the vast grounds, look out for rabbits, squirrels or pheasants taking their morning hop, scamper or stroll. An ample breakfast, served in the sunny dining room, includes eggs from the Kilgours’ hens. 3 miles E of town.|bedrooms 3. open Mar–Christmas. facilities Lounge, dining room, free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview), terrace, 9-acre garden and grounds (ha-ha; listed shafted stone sundial), parking. background music None. children All ages welcomed (over-2s £10 per night). prices Per room B&B £110.
