About The East Wing, Alexander House

The East Wing at Alexander House is an exceptional self-catering holiday home situated in the heart of rural Scotland just a few miles from the infamous village of Gleneagles and the small town of Auchterarder. Sleeping up to 15 guests in six beautiful bedrooms, it is the perfect luxurious retreat for extended family celebrations, groups of friends getting together, a hen party or anyone simply wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With a heated outdoor swimming pool, a hot tub, a children's play area, an acre of grounds and a grand drawing room with an open fire you will want for nothing whilst staying at Alexander House. It is a joy to cook in the contemporary kitchen with it's open plan dining and living area which is filled with light and gorgeous views of the Highlands. Alternatively hire a private chef and feast like kings and queens in the magnificent dining hall.

Once you are ready to explore the local area there is plenty to keep everyone entertained. Golfers will be spoilt for choice with the huge number of award-winning courses close by. Enjoy a round at one of the three championship courses at Gleneagles, or the stunning parkland course at Auchterarder. If you fancy venturing further afield you can head to the infamous St Andrews or the challenging 18 holes at Pitlochry. If thrill seeking activities are more your thing you won't be disappointed. From white water rafting, canyoning and kayaking, to horse riding, mountain biking and 4x4 safaris there are plenty of opportunities to satisfy adventurous souls. Fishing and clay shooting are also available locally, or simply lace up your walking boots and head for the hills.

It's not all about high octane actvities when on holiday at Alexander House. Visit the castles at Stirling, Doune, Blair Atholl and Scone Palace or enjoy a day out at Perth Races. Indulge in a spot of retail therapy in either Edinburgh and Glasgow (both an hour away) or treat yourself to afternoon tea or a fine dining experience at Gleneagles. And no visit to Scotland would be complete without a trip to one of the local whisky distilleries. If you can't tear yourself away from the comforts of your holiday home the owners can help arrange activity days at 'home'. Choose from chocolate and cocktail making classes to pampering treatments and bushcraft activities. Or simply kick back and relax in the tranquil surroundings.

Larger groups can also book The West Wing which sleeps an additional ten guests. Please see the owner's website for more details. Short breaks are available throughout the year and well behaved dogs are also welcome.

Accommodation comprises:

Ground Floor

  • Step through the main entrance into the impressive dining hall with it's large round table, perfect for formal dinners or special occasions.
  • Doors lead to the grand drawing room with a gorgeous open fire, comfortable sofas and armchairs and a games cupboard. This is the perfect spot to snuggle up on the sofa with a good book in front of a roaring fire, enjoy an afternoon of family board games or retire to in the evenings with a tipple of your choice.
  • Huge light and airy open plan kitchen, living and dining room is every cook's dream. With an American fridge freezer, a range cooker, Lavazza coffee machine, dishwasher, washer drier and all the cooking utensils you would expect to find at home, it will be a pleasure rustling up dinner in here. Flick on the 50 inch TV with Sky and Sky Sports or enjoy the stunning views of the Highlands. The pine kitchen table comfortably seats 15 people and the comfy sofas are a lovely spot to relax with a coffee or the morning papers.
  • All three rooms have doors leading to the south facing courtyard with swimming pool, whilst you can also access the front garden with picnic benches and a children's play area from the kitchen.

First Floor:

  • A spiral staircase leads from the dining hall up to the first floor where there are four stunning en-suite bedrooms. The master suite has a kingsize bed, comfortable sofa (which can double up as an additional bed), armchair and seating area. The three additional rooms include the magical silver sleigh room and two bedrooms that can either be made up as twins or doubles. All rooms have flat screen TVs.

Second Floor:

  • Large landing on the second floor has a sofa bed and TV area - the perfect hiding place for the kids to escape to! There is also a twin bedroom, a family room with either three single beds or a double and single, and a large bathroom.

Outside: Stunning south facing courtyard, which can be accessed off any of the rooms downstairs, includes a covered, heated outdoor swimming pool, 5 seater hot tub, garden furniture, a lawn area and large gas BBQ. To the front of the property there is an acre of gardens with a children's play area, picnic benches and lawn. The courtyard is an enclosed garden space for The East Wing. The front lawns are not enclosed. There is off street parking for up to six cars.

Additional information: All bed linen, towels, utilities, swimming pool heating and a basket of logs are included. Additional logs can be purchased from the owners. Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome at a cost of £25 each. Stables can be organised nearby, at additional cost. The owner's regret that the property is not suitable for guests with mobility issues as there are no toilets on the ground floor. Please also note that the driveway is not suitable for low sports cars and in winter a 4x4 may be necessary.
