A splendid large family home set in glorious isolation in the Scottish countryside, large enough for two families to share.

Located on a tree-lined country road, with the bustling River Deveron flowing past and surrounded by the rugged rolling hills of beautiful Aberdeenshire, this property is the perfect spot for a Scottish country break. Enjoy the great outdoors and an abundance of exciting pursuits close by, and be sure to bring along the family dogs to enjoy local walking and hiking routes. Sleeping eight guests, this spacious ground floor property is ideally suited to an extended family or group of friends of all ages.

A traditional country style has been maintained in each and every room of this charming property, and original features throughout add to the overall character. Admire the original fireplaces and enjoy the surrounding rugged landscape through large windows. The house has been thoughtfully decorated with a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture and quality soft furnishings, creating a truly homely place to stay.

The entire house is set out on the ground floor, with only three steps leading down to the open-plan sitting and dining room and one step down to one of the bedrooms. This spacious lounge and dining area is the heart of the house, where comfortable sofas crowd around a warming wood burner and make a cosy space to enjoy an evening tipple. Enjoy family meals together at the dining table whilst observing the wonderful, far-reaching views. Dinner can be prepared in the well-equipped kitchen which offers an authentic farmhouse Aga on which to cook. If you don’t fancy setting up the formal dining table, then enjoy a more casual breakfast or lunch in the relaxing TV room. This is a great spot for settling down and watching a film as a group, or enjoying a competitive board game. All four bedrooms are spacious and well furnished, offering plenty of space to unpack clothes or get ready in the morning. A small selection of books can be found on the bedside table in one of the double bedrooms.

Generous both indoors and out, the property also boasts a spacious surrounding garden which extends to approximately half an acre. This fantastic space is fully enclosed by stock proof fencing and offers a large area of lawn and an area of wild woodland. It's a secure spot to let children play or allow pets to let off some steam. Enjoy early evening drinks or fresh morning coffee on the garden furniture. Older kids and teenagers will adore retreating to the external chalet where they’ll find a great hangout area equipped with table tennis as well as a mezzanine level with cushions and a TV.

Head into nearby Aberchirder (6 miles) to stock up on supplies or grab a bite to eat at one of the cafes. Otherwise, you could drop by Huntly (10 miles) to sample some local whisky and explore the ancient castle. Head to the coast to walk the scenic coastal path, spend an afternoon dolphin spotting on the Moray Firth (31 miles) or take to the water for surfing. The coastal communities of Banff (15 miles), Sandend (14.5 miles) and Lossiemouth (30 miles) boast pretty harbours, long sandy beaches and tempting eateries, while a ride on the dog-friendly Heritage Railway from Keith (10 miles) to Dufftown (21.5 miles) is perfect for a family outing.

Absolutely beautiful cottage in an amazing setting. Very well presented and equipped. Internally a little dated but this is not an issue and does not take away from any of the charm the place has.

This is a lovey rural cottage - well equipped, private and peaceful. It is a good place for a larger family or friends to stay and a lot of thought has gone into the comfort of the guests. We would definitely like to stay again.

Excellent place - lots of room and a really great outdoor space. The two living rooms and the separation of some of the bedrooms from each other is ideal to ensure that you can do your own thing if you want. There is certainly no danger of feeling crowded and there is a great big living room if you are feeling sociable!
