“Amazing House - Just perfect. A real home from home”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed here with my husband, 2 children, brother, sister and nephew. It was just perfect for us.
Sadly we were travelling to the area for a funeral but as we were coming a long distance (from Oxford and Gloucester - over 500 miles away from Elgin) and we had children in our party (aged 2, 5 and 10), we wanted a home from home to stay in rather than booking into a hotel and this house was just that.
The house was just perfect. We brought a travel cot with us for our 2 year old to sleep in and there was plenty of room for us to put that up in any of the bedrooms.
We loved the fact that each bedroom had its own bathroom/ensuite, it was so easy for us all to get up and ready without having to queue for a bathroom in the morning, which when you're staying with extra people, its always a major friction point and annoyance. The showers were powerful which when you've got long hair like me, it makes life a million times easier.

The beds were all extremely comfortable, we all slept very well. The living room is beautifully decorated, very practical and comfortable, good size tv, selection of books and board games to play. The fact that the house also had Wifi was great at it meant we could all use the internet whilst at the house without having to worry about data usage on our smartphones. We were also able to use on demand tv on our iPad for our children to watch their favourite programs which always makes life easier.

The kitchen/dining area is a great space, the large dining table was perfect for every to sit around and there was everything you could need equipment wise in the house from an ironing board and iron to umbrellas in the porch incase you forgot to bring one with you. There was even a coolbag and picnic stuff in the utility room if you want to go out for the day and pack a picnic.

The driveway had plenty of room for the 2 cars we had for our party and was really easy to park.
The guidebook in the house with directions and menus for local places was amazing too, great to give you an idea of your options around.
As we had family in the area we already knew the area quite well but for someone who has never been to the area before it was extremely thoughtful.

Location wise it was perfect, very quiet and there is a 24 hour ASDA (with a pay at the pump petrol station) a mile down the road so you can pick up whatever you need.

It was only 15 minutes from the Baxters factory and cafe in Mosstodloch, Fochabers too which is one of our favourite places up there. They have a factory shop with fabulous chutneys that you can't get down here in England and their cafe is great, I highly recommend a visit to try their pancakes as it is so close to this house.

We would definitely stay at the house again and really hope to do so in the future.

“Great accommodation”
Reviewed 4 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Lovely house which sleeps 8 people comfortably. The dining/kitchen area is a great size with enough room for golf clubs as well as bags etc. Each bedroom is a good size with 3 separate showers/bathrooms. The lounge also provides a relaxing place to sit after a strenuous day on the links! Very welcoming.

We stayed there for a wedding over a weekend with extended family and were absolutely delighted with the house! Rooms are spacious, clean. Beds are extremely comfortable with large en suites. Particular fan of the large kitchen - perfect for cooking meals for large groups. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back if ever in Elgin again! Thank you for attention to detail and stocking the house with all utilities we needed. Much better value than any hotel nearby also!

Beautiful spacious accommodation with attention to detail in every room.

We were in Elgin to visit family and friends, everybody who visited commented on how lovely the house was. Furnishings were of the highest quality with a lovely large garden to enjoy whatever the weather.

We will most certainly visit again and again.

The owner was most helpful and accommodating, even allowing us to extend our stay at short notice.
