Overview

About the property

Beautiful late Victorian house with open fires and an AGA

This comfortable family house sits in an elevated and secluded position close to Inverness town centre. Surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and flowering bushes, the private garden offers panoramic views over Inverness to the hills beyond. Just 5 minutes walk from Inverness town centre, Eden Court theatre, Bellfield Park and the lovely Ness Islands.

This spacious house is furnished with the emphasis on comfort and enjoyment. The open plan kitchen and dining room with open fire is the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring. While your meal is simmering on the AGA, wander outside to the garden to enjoy the glorious views. Comfort is continued in the cosy sitting room, also with open fire; here you can round off the day with a cup of tea or a whisky before retiring to the lovely comfortable bedrooms.

The house comes with all “mod cons”: gas central heating, free wi-fi, Sonos multi-room sound system and two widescreen TVs with PVR, Blu-ray and DVD players (and a wireless for the Archers!). There is also a cupboard full of board games and shelves full of books and DVDs.

About The Owner

Graham grew up in Inverness before leaving to go to University in Edinburgh in 1986. He has always been extremely fond of Inverness and the Highlands and has retained close connections to the town (now a city). He has many relatives and friends living locally and gets back as often as he can, especially in the football season.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Inverness, Loch Ness & Nairn

Graham bought Bellfield Cottage back in 2006, initially for his own use when visiting friends and family. Since 2009, he has let the house out to visitors. It is a very busy rental property, fully booked every summer, Christmas and New Year and popular in the autumn and spring with return guests, including many performers at the local Eden Court Theatre.

In 2012, Graham bought Kinmylies Farmhouse, which had long been one of his favourite properties in Inverness. This is also now available to rent. (see http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p1091419)

Graham's mother, Margaret, looks after both of his rental properties and delights in meeting guests from all parts of the world.

What makes this house unique

It took me 7 years of searching to find my dream home from home. Bellfield Cottage is one of just 4 houses cut into the steep bank that runs through Inverness parallel to the river. The cottage is secluded enough to afford guests complete privacy, yet with wonderful views and only a short walk to the town centre.

Lovely property, great view, easy walk to town

  • 5 of 5

We just had a lovely weekend stay in the home, with several great walks around Inverness. Margaret was a fantastic hostess, and could not have made our stay more pleasant. The home was perfect to settle straight into, and again the essential basics - milk, snacks etc all ready for us. Children had a great time and made use of the stock of DVD's in the evening. Would thoroughly recommend and would be happy to come back.

Our home in Inverness

  • 5 of 5

The Inverness house was beautiful, warm, inviting, clean and big! It was fabulous having two full baths for the four of us. The walk to town was short and easy. Thanks so much for the provisions provided (coffee, tea, milk and wine). We were so grateful to not have to stop and purchase groceries.

A special thank you to Margaret. Not only was she available to answer any and all of our questions, but she drove us, and picked us up from Culloden. And on the way home showed us a very special circle of stones. Her kindness and generosity made our stay in Inverness the best part of our two week trip.

Une Maison plein de charme parfaitement situé

  • 5 of 5

L'accueil de Margaret dans sa maison était parfaite. La maison est à dix minutes à pied du centre ville - mais chargé de valises et de jeunes enfants, ces 10 minutes pourraient sembler longs. Margaret est immédiatement venue à notre rescousse pour emmener les valises dans sa voiture.

Il n'y a rien à redire sur la maison. Vue superbe surplombant la ville. Tout le confort: Le four Aga avec tout son charme, les cheminées et un wifi sans faille. On s'y sent instantement bien.

Si vous avez de jeunes enfants comme nous, il y a un petit parc avec aire de jeux à 3 minutes et on peut y louer de supers vélos pour des journées de découvertes.

Nous y avons passé 5 jours formidables.

An amazing place to stay in the Highlands and relax

  • 5 of 5

After a week in London and and a week in Edinburgh we were ready to calm down and relax and Bellfield Cottage is the perfect place for that. A full well supplied kitchen and a BBQ outside prompted a trip to the supermarket and some grilling and evenings relaxing after tours and golf. Really can't say enough about how comfortable and welcoming this place felt to us; everything was well maintained and the beds were very comfy. The views are amazing and a short walk to restaurants and the main shopping areas is a bonus; also just a couple blocks off the River Ness for a nice stroll along the path or over the bridge to the other side. We had a fantastic week exploring the area and just relaxing in the cottage. Would love to go back anytime; Inverness. although smaller, is a busy place catering to tourists with many good restaurants.

Super

Very nice property with excellent views and a 5 minute walk along the river into the town centre. Everything was spotlessly clean and everything worked.

Hidden gem in Inverness

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to this fab house for several years and look forward to our Spring visit so much. The house is warm and welcoming with every convenience. Always scrupulously clean and with excellent service from the owners should you need it. The golf is great and the great range of restaurants very tempting! The scenery speaks for itself. All in a great find. Johanna & Roy Lyttle
