Beautiful Cottage
Old listed cottage lovingly restored by the owner with an extention at the back. Large garden surrounds the cottage. Lovely and peaceful. Out in the countryside on a road with a few neighbouring houses. At the top of the road is the stunning Spey Bay where you can watch dolphins. Highly recommended for a peaceful stay.

Perfect spot for a weekend getaway
Great location, just a short stroll from the Speyside Way and a couple of miles' walk to the coast at Spey Bay. The cottage is cosy and beautifully furnished, with a well-equipped kitchen, log burner, smart TV and always-on hot tub just outside. Ian was very helpful with the directions and guest information, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this accommodation. We hope to be back very soon!

A wee gem.
This cottage is a marvellous place to stay. There wasn’t anything we needed that wasn’t supplied, including cleaning products and firelighters. . It has been renovated and decorated to a very high standard. Usually when a property is pet friendly, there is a feeling of animals being there regularly, however there is obviously a lot of care taken to ensure this isn’t the case. The whole cottage was very fresh and super clean. The hot tub was absolutely fantastic and I felt it quite luxurious being able to sit in the hot tub at 9am, it’s maybe time I retired or won the lottery or something.lol Ian the owner monitored the hot tub daily to ensure water quality. I was wondering how we would monitor it. The garden is enclosed and a lot bigger than I expected. Our border collie must have felt like a king being able to lie in the middle and survey his kingdom. The location is ideal to explore the area. It sits a few minutes drive from Scottish dolphin centre and a couple of miles from Spey viaduct. It is a short drive to Elgin and various places of interest like Pluscarden abbey. Fochabers village is close by with small supermarkets and other shops. We are planning our next visit to Chelona soon. It will be lovely to be able to visit again.

Scenic Bliss
Absolutely gorgeous setting with a lush and large garden. Comfy layout that was warm and welcoming. Use of the hot tub on clear, warm nights was amazing. Only a few minutes drive from the nearest village. Would definitely return for another stay.

Lovely cottage with a great pet friendly garden
So many places to visit nearby and excellent dog walking. The cottage was well equipped, the garden was perfect for our two dogs and the hot tub was a great bonus. It ticked all the boxes for us

Excellent
Booked this cosy and welcoming cottage for myself, my fiance and 15 year old staffie. We fell in love with the property the second we arrived. Ian has thought of everything in this home from home, topped off with an enclosed garden for our dog to explore and a hot tub for us to relax in after a day of seeing the sights.Time seemed to stand still while we were away. We definitely look forward to going back.

Tranquility assured.
Spent 2 nights on this cost wee cottage with other half. Extremely comfortable place well kitted out. Made good use of hot tub (who wouldn't?). Neighbaaaas across the road were so quiet, little lambs ;). A good "get away from it all" kinda place.

Whiskey tour
Just returned from a four day break in this lovely cottage. Had an amazing time the cottage has everything you could wish for including a log burner for chilly nights. I can't think of a single thing this cosy place was lacking. The cottage is kept very clean by the owner Ian a very friendly and helpful host. The garden a bonus the hot tub great fun after a day wandering around whiskey distillery visitor centres. Chelona is ideally placed for a whiskey tour plus you have the beach literally a mile and a half down the rd Chelona is on.
