Just returned from a weeks stay at Duffus Farmhouse to celebrate my son’s birthday. We’re stayed here many times before and we just love the place. It’s quiet, comfortable, roomy and every room is equipped with everything we need. It’s always spotlessly clean, beds are comfortable and the bathrooms have been refitted to luxury standard. The walk in showers are perfect for those of us with mobility problems and the big bath was a hit with my granddaughter. It’s brilliant just to relax in the garden and admire the view to the castle. Can’t wait for our next trip !
A very comfortable fully equipped home-from-home. We arrived when it was dark, so it was especially pleasant to open the bedroom curtains and see the sun rising over the castle. What a lovely view.
It was my first visit to this part of the country. It's very beautiful and I am sure future guests would enjoy strolling around Hopeman, going to the beach or visiting Elgin and Lossiemouth.
Located beautifully by the castle providing lovely scenery. A great family property for getting all the family together, pet orientated with great local walks. Within a short drive from Elgin which has all needed amenities. Lovely spacious rooms, bathrooms and everything to make a home from home stay. Very well equipped property with all your home comforts. We will visit again!
Just back from a week here and have to say that this farmhouse offers very good family accommodation for larger groups. Easily the most well equipped house I think I've ever stayed in. Welcome pack was a really nice touch and much appreciated. Bed linen and towels were spotless and house was in good order throughout.
Only two things which probably need a mention.
The first is that the kitchen could do with a good clean as the inside of the drawers, the utensils and the oven were a bit dirty and sticky when we arrived. The top oven wasn't working either which wasn't a big deal but is handy when you're cooking for larger numbers.
The second is our own fault as we didn't account for the distance we would be from RAF Lossiemouth,and although the aircraft are amazing to see, our older Labrador didn't share our enthusiasm. Probably not a good place to stay if you have a nervous dog.
All in all a great stay and would definitely recommend.
This is a wonderful farmhouse in an amazing location. It overlooks Old Duffus Castle which is a great place to explore with children and dogs.
The house was clean and tidy with everything you could need for a short stay. It could do with some updating but more than adequate with plenty of space.
There is a large secure garden which is flat so great for games and for keeping the dogs safe.
The bed in the main double overlooking the castle had a very very squeaky mattress which made sleep difficult. However the second double was excellent. At night there is not a sound to be heard.
Overall a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at Old Duffus.
