As a family of 8, Three adults & five children ( 4yrs to 16yrs) this beautiful, spacious well equipped house was ideal for us. Have family living in the area so great for visiting them and old haunts. So much for the children to do. Board games, Wii. Pool table. Lots of space outside for football & the rope swing was used a lot as well. Just a short walk to shops, takeaways & not to forget the ice-cream parlour. The older children do not like sharing a bed so to get round this took a blow up bed with us. The area itself has such a lot to offer either within walking distance or just a short drive. Really hope I will be lucky enough to return to this oh so lovely house. Thank you.
We had a lovely long weekend whilst staying in the Old Manse in Fochabers. The weather was pretty wet and we made a good attempt at sight seeing but it was always a pleasure returning to the house as there was plenty to entertain everyone. It was warm and cosy with great facilities for all ages. The jacuzzi and sauna, gym and games room were a big hit! We also received a warm welcome from Robbie, the Caretaker. We would highly recommend staying here and hope that we'll be able to stay again soon.
We were a group of 9 staying here for a wedding taking place in Keith, and we didn't want to leave! The house was everything we could have hoped for, and had everything we needed. We made great use of the pool room in the basement, and the rest of the house was spacious, warm and comfortable.
Gaining entry was easy using the code provided for the key safe, and Robbie kept us on track by showing us how the heating worked, what to do with recycling, and where extra logs were for the fire should we have needed them.
We really didn't want to leave, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old Manse - we would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area. We're already thinking about an excuse to come back!
Myself and family stayed in this fantastic house for three nights to attend a family wedding at Innes house near Elgin. The Old Manse is a characterful house with loads of space. It is set in a large garden surrounded by trees so very private and in a quiet location with every amenity you could want. The boys really enjoyed playing pool in the games room and football on the lawn. Good location for the centre of Fochabers with a coop and good chip shop. We had pizza one night from Milano's, which I can thoroughly recommend and only a five minute walk from the house. Will definitely stay again.
