Garden Cottage sleeps 4 plus 2. Advertised rents are for parties up to 4. Additional guests are an extra cost of £75 per person per week.

The Garden Cottage at Druminnor is a delightful holiday cottage for those looking for a peaceful retreat in Aberdeenshire. This stone built cottage dates back to around 1700 and has successively been a mill, coach house, two gardeners cottages and a gamekeepers cottage, before being combined back into one building as a holiday let recently.

Sitting parallel to and sharing the grounds of Druminnor Castle, Garden Cottage overlooks a glorious garden, where its colours change across each season. Enjoy some peace and quiet whilst you soak up the sunshine on the patio, and listen to the sound of the burn flowing through at the end of the lawns – utter bliss. Inside, the cottage is spacious, with a well-equipped kitchen and dining area which has the bonus of a woodburning stove to keep you cosy whilst you eat a delicious home-cooked meal with the family. The sitting room has two groups of seating areas – one by the fire, and one around the TV. This room has a large arched window, which would have been the door for the horses when it was a coach house in times gone by. Today it makes a fantastic feature of the room and lets in plenty of light. Upstairs, the layout makes it ideal for two families sharing, as the first floor is accessed by two separate staircases at either end of the cottage. The sitting room staircase leads up to a double and a twin bedroom. The staircase from the kitchen takes you to a king/twin ziplinked bedroom and another with a small double bed, suitable for one person. Three of the bedrooms have built-in shower cubicles, while the 4th is next to the bathroom. Each bedroom is bright and generously sized; a true home away from home.

The cottage is located near Huntly, just outside the small village of Rhynie. The village is in the centre of one of the most important Pictish landscapes in Scotland, with numerous vitrified forts and stone circles. This area is great for outdoor activities – golf, fishing, horse riding and skiing is available within the vicinity of the property. Aberdeenshire is well known for its Castle Trail, so there is plenty to see and do. The all new North East 250 route (Aberdeenshire’s equivalent to the North Coast 500) runs nearby, so you can easily hop on and make your way around the sights of Speyside, the Moray Coast and Royal Deeside (to name just a few).

For most people, the principal attraction of the region is its landscapes, rich farmland in the east and north of the area, vast wilderness of mountain, forest and river in the west & south. Across this landscape runs The Castle Trail. The quintessentially Scottish castles and tower-houses of the north-east are its most distinctive tourist attraction, popular not only with those in search their Scottish roots, but also with anyone interested in history, architecture, art, gardens and the romance of Scotland’s past. The Falconry centre at Huntly is a memorable experience for visitors of all ages. There are also dozens of museums and visitor centres: The National Galleries of Scotland at Duff House; the Transport Museum at Alford; and Aberdeen Art Gallery. For those who prefer to consume their traditions more directly, the north-east is home to an uncountable number of whisky distilleries, from the very grand and famous, to the less so.

    Druminnor Garden Cottage reviews
    The Garden Cottage at Druminor Castle was amazing and even more amazing were the surroundings. The Cottage itself was really spacious and had a very castle-like atmosphere. The Cottage Garden was very a nice place to have your breakfast in the morning and you can easily spend half a day exploring the Castle Gardens and Woods. Most fascinating, though, was all the history that surrounds the place of which the owner gave us an interesting tour.
    Mrs Von Schaper - August 2019
    We stayed at Driminnor garden Cottage for one week. And we have enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage is well equipped and is nicely decorated. It was very clean and comfartable and the setting is absolutely stunning surrounded by beautifull gardens and nature. And still plenty to do in the surrounding area. If you like walking there are many nature trails at an hours distance. For instance in the Cairn Corms or along the east coast. If you are more interested in culture and history there are many castles close by and Aberdeen is worth visiting at less than an hour away. The owner was very friendly and helpful.
