larch cabin scotland
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.
An adults only, no pet space.
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.
A cool & quirky Ekol Applepie wood-burning stove keeps the cabin warm, toasty and authentically rustic (there is no central heating) and provides a fabulous focal point for cosying in. Also includes integrated pizza shelf and separate slow-cook top oven.
Modern kitchenette with electric ceramic hob and fridge freezer complete with a full range of cooking utensils and serving-ware including stovetop espresso maker.
WALK-IN SHOWER ROOM
Elegant ensuite bathroom provides a luxurious walk-in rainfall shower with water supplied from our own private spring.
LINEN & TOWELS
Luxurious cotton bedding and towels are provided for your stay as well outdoor blankets & cushions for al fresco dining and stargazing.
All furnishings, complimentary toiletries and cleaning products are cruelty-free, environmentally-friendly and, where possible, locally sourced and British made such as our sheepskins from Tolly Mcrae. We endeavour to support our local businesses and the talented artisans within our community such as Siabann and Counterroast.
In addition to the private verandah for outdoor dining, the cabin is situated within its own enclosed garden and is complete with fire-pit & bbq; guests can also enjoy their own secluded woodland hammock area.
Secure on-site bike storage, bike hire and bike servicing by our qualified mechanic can be provided upon request with advance booking. Those leaving the car behind and arriving by pedal power receive a complimentary bottle of bubbles... pop!
BESPOKE FITNESS SESSIONS
Individually tailored outdoor sessions in our woodland studio, including body conditioning, pilates and yoga led by our sister company, hinidas, with advance booking. Physical Health & Wellbeing retreats coming soon.

"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."
