Cosy modern vegan guesthouse at The Field Shelter in Perthshire
***Please read the Covid-19 update below before sending a booking request***
Our modern guesthouse is situated in the quiet village of Kirkmichael. We are ideally positioned for you to explore the great outdoors, there are some wonderful walks right on the doorstep and we are within 25 minutes of the Cairngorms National Park, Glenshee, and Pitlochry.
Our space (inside and out) is vegan so we ask you to respect our beliefs and not to bring or consume any animal products on our property.
The guesthouse consists of a bedroom with a king sized double bed, a cosy living area with large windows looking out onto the surrounding fields as well as a comfortable sofa bed, a small but modern bathroom, and a kitchenette with a fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, dining table, and V60 coffee maker.
Our guesthouse is not suitable for children between the ages of 2 and 12 years old. We have some dilapidated outbuildings and whilst we work towards renovating them we cannot allow children on the property. Please do not try to make a booking if you have children as I will have to decline the reservation.
As mentioned the whole space (both indoors and outdoors) is vegan. The kitchenette is stocked with oat milk, loose leaf tea, and coffee.
Our garden is a haven for wildlife and we enjoy watching red squirrels, rabbits, deer, and pheasants enjoying the garden. We are a working sanctuary so we are often in the outside areas caring for our rescued lambs between 6am and 10pm. If you would like to visit the lambs this needs to be pre-arranged at the time of booking and we will need to distance and wear masks.
We have a fire pit where you can have a fire. You will need to bring your own wood, matches / lighter, and newspaper to light a fire but you can also burn any twigs / fallen branches you find around the place. The fire pit can also be used as a spot for a disposable barbecue! There is a small wild garden area out the back of the guesthouse, it has a picnic bench and a chimnea, the space itself is only for guest use but it is next to a path we use regularly and buildings we are often in and out of.
The guesthouse is vegan owned and operated (I’ve been vegan for 16 years) and we try to be as eco friendly as possible. We are powered by renewable energy (let us know if you need to charge your car!), our tea is loose leaf and we provide vegan and eco friendly shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, and washing up liquid. We sourced the art for the walls from independent artists and designers and purchased some of our furniture second hand. We also wanted everything to be high quality so our sofa bed is from the luxury British sofa company Willow and Hall and our sheets and towels are Fair Trade organic cotton.
We are LGBTQIA+ friendly.
The guesthouse is equipped with a hairdryer and hangers. An iron and ironing board are available on request.
This is a no smoking guesthouse both inside and on the surrounding grounds.
Guests can access all areas inside the guesthouse as well as parking next to the garage.
Clean towels every day
Things to know
*****COVID-19 REOPENING UPDATE*****
*When we reopened the guesthouse for the spring / summer 2021 season we switched to a self catering model. This has been working well for our guests so we carried it on into 2022. The space is still 100% vegan and only has a fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave but no hob or oven. You still cannot bring animal products into the guesthouse or grounds despite this now being a self catering guesthouse.*
*Breakfast is not included in your stay but welcome baked goods are still provided.*
