ABOUT

about

An idyllic self-catering cabin for two situated on a working Scottish homestead nestled within a tranquil wooded valley just moments away from the dramatic beauty of the Devon River.

 

The perfect spot to unwind and while away the hours immersed in nature, or explore the stunning hikes and trails through the Ochil Hills.

 A secret haven only an hour away from Edinburgh and Glasgow and within easy reach of Gleneagles for the Caledonian Sleeper Train.

Adults only, no pets.

SLOW LIVING

Larch Cabin is situated within the grounds of our homestead and is part of our commitment to living life in a slower, more sustainable way. We have lovingly restored the cabin with sustainability at heart: recycling, upcycling and using what we have to hand wherever possible to create a welcoming hideaway from the noise of everyday.

GUEST REVIEWS

"Larch Cabin....... one of the best cabins I've ever stayed in. The atmosphere around the grounds was so peaceful and inviting, the bird song added to the tranquility as I swung in the hammock watching the trees dance in the wind. Caroline was such a lovely host and made me feel so welcome, the homestead they are building on is wonderful. I wish there was more places like this willing to explore environmentally sound practices and encourage the natural environment of the land."
