This beautiful home had everything we needed for the perfect holiday. The owners were amazing and provided fabulous customer service and care throughout the whole process. We will definitely stay here again. One of the best properties we have stayed in throughout the world.

Adequate and recommendable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place! We, 5 single adults, stayed for 4 nights. The house was exactly as described and served us very well indeed.

It looks totally new, everything was clean, big and beautiful. The kitchen was fully equipped, so cooking was a dream. Outdoor seating and garden were lovely.

The place is just few minutes from a big supermarket and the location in superb for traveling to the Speyside distilleries and to the seaside. Elgin town is also nice.

Thank you Shiela!

Ideal base to tour the Speyside distilleries

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 5 from two from Devon and 3 from Hong Kong.

The property was superbly equipped and we had everything we needed to self cater for our 10 day stay.It was spacious, light and airy and beautifully clean.The 3 large king-size bedrooms all had their own bathrooms so there was plenty of privacy.The spacious kitchen had a family sized table and there was plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge.The garden was beautifully kept with room for outdoor dining.

Elgin is a pleasant town with every amenity.We enjoyed visits to the seaside town of Lossiemouth,Ballindaloch Castle,the Keith to Dufftown Railway and the numerous distilleries around Speyside.

All in all a very good holiday.

Spacious, clean, modern, well equipped cottage, location is directly off roundabout at top of New Elgin, with access to a choice of local amenities. Sheila has catered for every need you will have through your stay, the cottage is warm with a log burner at you disposal if you are looking for a romantic week away. We were a party of 4 adults and two children plenty of room for more!! Great stay, like home from home, would recommend to all , brilliant place with great garden for small ones to play safely.

What a great find!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this property for 3 nights while attending a wedding in Findocherty. There were 7 of us and since we are all from out of area this was the ideal solution for staying all together with plenty of room to get ready for the wedding!

The house was far beyond our expectations, rooms were very spacious all with super clean/modern decor all with their own fully equipped bathrooms. The outdoor space was a great touch and lucky for us the weather stayed dry enough to make good use of this! There was plenty of space for the 4 cars we had between us to fit in the driveway and even more space on the street. There is a petrol station literally a couple of houses down the road with a huge shop attached which sold everything you would ever need for your stay, even coal for the bbq!

Would highly recommend this house for any groups of 4+ looking to stay in the area as it works out great value when the cost is split.

All round superb experience, Thanks Sheila!
