We really couldn't fault our stay here. Communication ahead of time was really clear, straightforward and accommodating of our requests. The place itself is really well presented, clean and cosy. It is well equipped and we cooked delicious meals in the kitchen using produce from the farm. The views are stunning too and lots to explore in the surrounding area.

“Very peaceful stay”

Spacious, comfortable & well appointed, the two of us enjoyed our weeks stay at Wark Farm. Located away from the road up a private lane it is very quiet even though it is a working farm, Most of the property is on the first floor above the farm office with just a utility room on the ground floor. The bed was large & comfortable and the built-in wardrobe provided plenty of storage space. The bathroom was also well sized with a good shower. The large main room also contains the kitchen so makes for a sociable stay.
The farm produced food is recommended and the property was well located for touring the local area. The farm collies are friendly and enjoy playing with sticks.

Liked best: Beautiful countryside. Spacious and well decorated. Wark Farm produce.
Liked least: A TV, and maybe a microwave would be good.

Service was relaxed warm and welcoming. The property is a gorgeous farm amongst serene surroundings. We got to feed lambs and chickens. The place was well equipped for home cooking. It was spacious clean and tidy. There were also books to read. Bought some eggs and meat off the owners. Felt very rested by the end of our stay. Location is great for trips around Aberdeenshire. We visited whisky distilleries, went mountain biking, and walked around Aberdeen.

“Beautiful country location”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My partner, dog and I stayed for a long weekend. Accommodation was lovely. Very tastefully furnished and new. Excellent kitchen facilities and very comfy bed.
Was great as the hayloft is in the farmyard so you are surrounded by all manner of animals.
Hosts were very welcoming and friendly. We bought some eggs and meat from the farm during our stay.
Located in the middle of the Aberdeenshire countryside, very close to many lovely walks.
Would definitely return,

“Hayloft Joy”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Wark Farm Hayloft for 4 nights in April. The accommodation is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The owners were very helpful and friendly and even gave us a tour of the farm. They had good knowledge of the area. We bought meat and eggs from the farm - all excellent and very tasty. Overall, we would recommend The Hayloft as a great base for exploring the surrounding areas.
