“Fantastic Holiday Stay”

We needed somewhere to stay before a family wedding, and what we got was a super holiday location. The house is big and old with bags of character and has everything you need for a good stay. It's grand but still homely. Furnishings are modern and comfortable. All the bedrooms are spacious, lovely old wooden shutters kept light out and the heat in. It was nice to light the real fire in the main living room in the evening, lots of wood available to use.
Big basement room with pool table and bar fridge and black light tubes, was really cosy down there. The gym room was separate, looked packed with kit but we didn't use.
Gorgeous big main bathroom with excellent shower and superb little sauna. Would need to time your whirlpool bath right for the hot water availability, I think. There's another bath in one of the en suites, too.
Lovely big hallway and staircase, very grand, plenty of room.
Kitchen was well appointed, though those used to cooking with gas or induction may find the electric hob slow. Note there's no washing machine. We enjoyed
We easily walked into town where there is a super ice cream shop, good butcher, baker, and a few other shops, it's a nice little town. From Fochabers we enjoyed visiting the incredible coast and also down beautiful Speyside, there was no shortage of things to see and do.
There's outside furniture and the covered gazebo, even a rope swing in one of the lovely big trees and the football goalposts discreetly watching over the lovely front lawn. We even used the telescope one night and viewed Jupiter and its moons. The house is very private and has loads of parking space.
Outside Fochabers, we would recommend a trip to the coast, try starting at the Spey Bay Dolphin centre, and pop in to the Buckie Fishing Heritage Centre. Reserve a table at Rockpool in Cullen, or if you miss out, try the cafe at the antique shop up the street. Inland, the Speyside Cooperage is a fascinating visit, and take a trip round one of the distilleries. Pluscarden Abbey is nearby, a free visit to see a beautiful building, and time a trip to hear the monks singing.
We had a super week, many thanks to the owners and caretaker for a friendly and welcoming stay.

We are glad you had a fantastic stay in our house and that you made use of the telescope.
We have now arranged to have washing and drying facilities included within the property and will look in to the electric cooker speed to see if anything can be done such as adding an induction hob to one side.
Thank you for your review.
