Sitting in 8 acres of fabulous gardens and grounds, this wonderful seven-bedroom property is ideal for family gatherings and special occasions in a superb location close to the Aberdeenshire Coast.
This superb Grade C listed holiday let, parts of which date back to the 1580s, sleeps 12 guests and two dogs across seven bedrooms. The property embraces the elegance of traditional furnishings yet blends them with more contemporary decor, giving it a real sense of grandeur and style. Set between the hamlets of Forgue and Drumblair, a quiet and rural part of Aberdeenshire, it is perfect for a large family or group of friends who want some time to relax and unwind away from busy lives.
The rooms within the property have a true country house style, complete with ornate fireplaces and rich woods in the furnishings. Soft lighting and neutral colours make it an ideal space to relax in after a long day exploring, with wonderful views across the garden from the drawing room.
The kitchen/diner is charming with its large dining table and pretty wooden cabinets, as well as a smaller kitchen table; the Aga is a cook’s delight with enough space to whip up a lovely meal. Snuggle up in front of the fire in the drawing room, which has lovely views of the garden, or hide away in the family room with a book before heading to bed. There’s an en-suite twin bedroom on the ground floor with quaint traditional furniture.
Get some peace and quiet in the six bedrooms on the first floor. An indulgent double bedroom with four-poster bed shares a Jack and Jill bathroom with another comfy double room, while a four-poster single room has access to the stunning master bedroom with garden views and a coronet bed head. A tower shower room adds a spa-like feel to your stay with lots of natural light, while the master bedroom has a bath in the en-suite, ideal for a soak in the evening. The bedrooms are set up perfectly for families, so everyone can enjoy themselves without any hassle or worry.
Set within 8 acres of grounds, there is plenty to explore within the estate. Wander the gardens and perhaps even sample some of the fruit and vegetables that are growing there; expect to see deer and red squirrels as you walk around the property. If the weather’s not its best, the games barn will keep guests of all ages happy. On sunny evenings, enjoy an al fresco drink out on the patio as you take in the wonderful scenery and the children and dogs play in the enclosed garden.
