Excellent views

These four fabulous houses have been sympathetically converted from old farm buildings and stables to provide excellent accommodation for a family holiday in peaceful surroundings. Each house has its own private garden and has been cleverly designed to ensure privacy. The very spacious accommodation is warm and very comfortable (with air source heating and woodburners) and the ample living areas provide plenty of space to relax or enjoy family gatherings. The Stables is a lovely spacious property with high ceilings and a woodburner, while The Barn and The Byre are great family houses with lovely views and plenty of room. The Coach House features a super master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and rolltop bath. The properties are next to Tolquhon Gallery and Tolquhon Castle - known as one of the most pictureque castles in Grampian. This is ’castle country’ and there are many to explore in the area. There are many golf courses at hand, while Pitmedden Gardens and Haddo House are close by. Within easy reach of Balmedie Beach, Cruden Bay and Forvie Sands. Aberdeen is just half an hour’s drive.

    We had a great week in this lovely spacious house. The constant heating was very welcome ( except it could get a little warm at night!). The kitchen was particularly well equipped and the house well furnished. The local area is gorgeous, with many places of interest near by.

    Lots of space inside and out this lovely well equipped property, ideal for adults & kids alike. Castle on your doorstep was an added bonus and the Aberdeenshire weather was stunning !!
