Coming Soon to Aberfeldy

We have been busy working away on our Farm Shop and Deli, which we aim to open at the in mid July for COVID secure shopping and with the extended range of produce on offer through the shop we will continue to offer our Thyme Delivered service to homes in our area.  You can now download our order form from our home page and we are adding more of our products to our online Shop, with a click and collect service for people living locally.

When Will Holiday Cottages in Scotland Reopen?

Scottish Government have announced we can welcome guests from the 3rd of July to our holiday cottages!   There is much to do to get ready for opening – we are busy completing our risk assessments, cleaning protocals and training team members.   We are busy reviewing our cleaning policy and procedures and stocking up on all the PPE and Sanitizers required to ensure that when we are able to re-open, we can minimise the risks and make Errichel as safe as possible to visit. We will be working with the local Tourism Group to to help visitors enjoy their stay while keeping themselves and the community safe.

We understand this is a very difficult time for people who have made travel arrangements and organised gatherings. If you have a reservation with us between now and August please do keep in touch with us to discuss your booking.  We are urging people to consider postponing their reservation rather than cancelling. For all travel arrangements affected by the COVID-19 situation between March and July we are offering the opportunity to postpone your trip and we will carry forward deposit payments to future bookings within the next 12 months.

Can I book now for dates after 3rd July?

Yes! Our calendars for our holiday cottages are open now for bookings for dates after 3 rd July.  Bookings can be secured with a 25% deposit.  We will contact you one month prior to arrival to assess the situation.  If at this point the situation seems very uncertain we may reassess 14 days prior to arrival and may take a 25% deposit at this point in time, with the balance due on arrival.

Our Bed and Breakfast Rooms and Restaurant bookings remain closed for July while we assess the situation and await further guidance regarding social distancing, PPE etc in these areas.

Our new Farm Shop and Deli will be open from July for grocery shopping and take-away food and drink.  When outdoor seating is permitted we will be able to offer relaxed outdoor dining.

We will be reviewing the situation daily and will update our policy in line with recommendations from the Government as required.

Please do support all small businesses in any way you can. Think about booking later in the year or buying a gift voucher for a loved one.

Please do think about booking your family gathering, wedding or reunion for next year at Errichel and Thyme.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you in 2020 and beyond!

Stay safe, Stay well, best wishes, Becky and Paul

We are offering a menu of ready meals created by our Chefs from Thyme Restaurant, which we will deliver locally in Aberfeldy and to our Cottages.

Welcome to Errichel House and Cottages

We are a family business based on a hill farm just outside the picturesque town of Aberfeldy. We are passionate about great food, great service, conserving our environment and Britain’s rare-breed native animals.   We have a strong ethos for quality and care which comes through in everything we do.

We run Errichel, a small hill farm, with native rare breed livestock; Shetland Cattle, Large Black Pigs and Shetland Sheep.   We make use of our own farm produce in the food we serve, alongside showcasing the best local and Scottish produce. Errichel House and Cottages provides unique luxury guest accommodation here on the farm. With amazing views and a beautiful rural setting, in the heart of Highland Perthshire, Errichel is a great base from which to explore Scotland.

Chef Proprietor Paul Newman has developed an award winning range of food products which can be enjoyed in Thyme at Errichel Restaurant, bought in our Farm Shop or ordered online.

The year 2020 will see some exciting new developments.  We will have two additional guest rooms available in Errichel House. The Gallery Dining Room is available for private dining, ceremonies, lunches and workshops.  We will have a new Cafe Bar and Lounge with an extensive range of Whisky, Gins, Craft Beers and a good selection of non-alcoholic and low-alcohol serves too.  Introducing relaxed day-time, doggy-friendly dining, we look forward to welcoming people to enjoy the gardens and grounds of Errichel.  We will be offering more guided farm tours and for those of you who want to head out to explore we can point you in the right direction for some fantastic walks.  Keep your eye on our Blog section for news and updates or get in touch to find out more and arrange your next visit to Highland Perthshire.
