Set in a secluded location, this vast property is perfect for a large family getaway exploring the magnificent Scottish countryside, whilst still only a short drive from Inverness.
Dating back to the 17th century, this impressive house is set within extensive grounds and makes a wonderful base for a large family holiday or a group gathering. With ample space for up to 15 guests, this beautiful property is ideally situated in mixed woodland just 5 miles from the Cairngorms National Park and with the historic city of Inverness within easy reach along the A9 (17 miles). This is an idyllic spot, with the River Findhorn running past the house, and you may spot red squirrels, roe deer, ospreys or otters along the riverbank.
This attractive, welcoming and elegant property has been gradually enlarged and updated to ensure you enjoy a comfortable and relaxing holiday. The house offers a range of beautifully proportioned rooms, with delightfully decorated and stylishly furnished living areas – many with open fires, making this a fantastic setting for a special occasion. There are also nine cosy bedrooms, many with wonderful views over the beautiful gardens.
On entering this grand but not imposing holiday retreat, you will find yourself in the light and attractive hallway. From here you will find the spacious main drawing room which features a lovely open fire, a piano, plenty of comfortable seating and a large bay window letting the light in. Exploring the ground floor further, there is an additional lounge, again with plenty of seating and an open fire, as well as a TV and a choice of books to peruse. The delightful dining room is perfect for enjoying a special family meal which you can prepare in the fully equipped and stylishly designed kitchen. The kitchen also has a useful breakfast table which is ideal for less formal meals. The ground floor also includes a playroom, larder, butler’s pantry, laundry room and cloakroom.
Going upstairs, there are nine cosy and charmingly furnished bedrooms to be found on the first floor, many with dressing tables and plenty of storage space. The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, and there’s also a double room, four twin rooms and three single rooms.
Stepping outside, there’s plenty of space in the garden for children to play and explore. The lawn makes an idyllic backdrop for a competitive game of croquet or tennis, or you can simply sit back and enjoy the views along with a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. Fishing can be arranged on the nearby River Findhorn, and the area is ideal for guests seeking to take part in a full range of outdoor activities.
Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
