Set on a working farm near the ancient fishing port of Nairn, this semi-detached cottage celebrates farm life, and is in reach of the spectacular Moray Firth and the Highlands

Situated on a working farm, this cosy two-bedroom cottage is perfect for families seeking a rural retreat deep in the heart of the Moray countryside. The soft sandy beaches at Nairn (6 miles) and Findhorn Bay (11 miles) are wonderful for a gentle stroll spotting the famous Moray Firth dolphins or head to the Cairngorms National Park (21.5 miles) for a day walking the scenic hills.

For a more leisurely activity, take a guided tour of the farm and get to know some of its animal residents up close. Your single-storey cottage has a traditional and homely feel to it, with a white-washed exterior and cosy rooms decorated in muted tones with floral accents. Windows look out over the garden and onto the rolling farmland beyond where the livestock graze in the fields and wild birds fly overhead. With sumptuous sofas to sink into after a day exploring the countryside, your snug lounge/diner is a warm and inviting space with views onto the garden. Prepare family meals in the well-equipped kitchen and dine at the bistro-style table.

For a peaceful night’s sleep there is a double and twin bedroom, both pretty rooms with ample storage for your belongings. The cottage has a spacious bathroom. The outside space with the cottage is perfect for relaxing in. Play garden games on the front and rear lawn shared with the adjoining cottage or fire up the built-in brick BBQ for a sociable alfresco meal watching the livestock in the surrounding fields.

I spend a week in the cottage and loved it. It is quiet with a beautiful view over the fields with the sky, the cows that would come to the fence to see what Im doing, and the marvelous sunrises to be seen from the bedroom with the twin beds and the kitchen window.

I had stunning walks along the coast and a day trip to the Cairngorms (45min by car). It is a good choice. Hide

Amazing stay at Firthview cottage. Spotless, gorgeous, quaint, comfy beds, amazing views and central for touring Cairngorms, Highlands and Black Isle. Nairn was a lovely seaside spot too. Don't forget to try the recommended walks, the views are so worth it. Would be back in a heartbeat.

The cottage was in a very quiet location that suited us very well. The firth could be seen in the distance and the wildlife could be seen from the kitchen window. Hares came be seen very clearly very close to the property and at dusk deer could be seen in the field. We had a marvellous time. Well done to the owner as the cottage was very clean and Read morewell equipped. Hide
