Spent the most wonderful week of my life at this old stunning property. Plenty of space for us all. Had fun cooking in the kitchen and when more in the games room and sauna. Would like to come back during the summer months to get a chance to enjoy the beautiful surrounding mature garden and bbq area. I arrived a miss and left a mrs. Fantastic life time memories made here. Thanks to the owners for making the property a home from home trip.
My company recently spent 2 months working in the area, using the house for the duration of our stay. Fantastic property, would highly recommend. Robbie the caretaker was very helpful as well.
Had a fabulous stay at The Old Manse. We booked the house to celebrate my husband’s 60th. He wanted to visit whisky distilleries and the house was perfectly located for us to do this.
The weather was superb for our whole week of our stay and we enjoyed the outside space as well as the house itself. A few more comfortable garden chairs would have been nice.
The house is well equipped and clean.
I would like to say a big thankyou to John and Shona and Johns dad for allowing us to have a fantastic place to stay in and making our time in Fochabers for a family wedding memorable and for all who stayed in the Old Manse, we have taken away some lovely memories of this time which was only three nights and wished it had been longer. We loved the space, how clean it was, its atmosphere and the facilities included. We all enjoyed the sauna, jacuzzi bath and power shower in the main bathroom and in particularly we all enjoyed playing the game of snooker in the games room and I even used the treadmill before going for a run to Gordon Castle and back. Thankyou, thankyou we are still talking about our stay and hope to return sometime in the future when visiting family.
A great venue with character galore. We were a family group comprising six adults and three children plus toddler and there was ample room for us all to be accommodated in the very generous accommodation provided by this lovely house. Loads of games for the kids including the swing in the garden which was a great hit, well equipped kitchen, exceptionally big dining room, plenty of towels in the bathrooms and a very convenient washing machine and dryer. We were up for a family wedding so time was short to enjoy the gym, pool room and sauna, but nonetheless they were a real bonus for some of the party. Robbie is a real gent and was on hand to help and advise when needed which was appreciated. All in all a really exceptional house and a real 'find' so have no hesitation in giving it full marks. Would definitely book again if we go up as a group again.
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.
