It is here that you will find The Haven, a detached cottage in traditional style, that is spacious and most beautifully presented.
Enter The Haven by the side door with its large sunny decking area into a spacious hallway. Turn right and down a few steps and into a very large and spacious living area. The lounge area is elegantly furnished with plenty of comfortable seating and lights around an open fire, which keeps the place cosy and supplements the gas central heating.
In the dining area there is a large family farmhouse table situated at the window where you can watch the world go by. The kitchen is well equipped and boasts both a Rayburn and a conventional oven and hob.
Up to the back of the house is a large bedroom with beautiful views of the hills at the back of St Fillans, with its king size bed and extensive mirrored wardrobe. This bedroom has its own separate bathroom (not en suite) that is ideal if you want some privacy and distance. There is also a utility room that provides useful storage space for coats and boots.
Back along the hall and upstairs to two large bedrooms, one of which has a lovely big king-size bed with a large built in wardrobe and windows with views to the front and back. Across the landing is the family room with three single beds where children in the party can have a great time and also on this level is a light and bright, modern shower room.
Outside at the back of the house apart from the decking area there is also sunny seating area with table chairs and a BBQ. At the back there is enough parking for three cars and a little gate leads into The Haven’s very own private paddock. This very large calming, sunny area is surrounded by trees and shrubs with a picnic bench that seats eight. It is a great place for kids to play safely and well away from the road.
As well as fronting on to the loch, the village has a shop/cafe (where fishing permits for the loch may also be obtained) and three hotels within walking distance, all serving excellent meals.
Within a five minute stroll is the St Fillans Golf Club, which welcomes visitors and has a small bistro attached to the clubhouse for good measure.
If you take the little road along the south side of the loch you will come upon some wonderful places for peaceful lochside picnics. There is also a splendid marina and Loch Earn is well known for its water sports - sailing, wind-surfing, waterskiing, etc. There are good walks along the loch, while those in search of something more challenging will find Ben Vorlich and Stuc a Chroin waiting for them on the south side.
With such a central position, you could hardly be better placed for touring. Just 6 miles to the east is the village of Comrie (with all facilities) and from there you can turn off into the hills via Glenlednock, with more lovely picnic places.
To the south from the other end of the Loch via Loch Lubnaig is Callander and the Trossachs and to the north west you can be on the west coast at Oban in under two hours. The little town of Killin, beside the Falls of Dochart, is another tourist honeypot. A round trip along Loch Tay to Kenmore and Aberfeldy, returning via the beautiful Sma' Glen and Crieff makes an excellent day out.
