The Barn at The Old Manse is a superb conversion of an 18th-century stone barn, set in the grounds of a historic listed building dating back to the 1780s which the owners run as a B&B. Set in a large 2-acre woodland garden, it provides a very good standard of accommodation in a tranquil yet accessible location. The main living area is a stunning room on the ground floor converted from the old barn into a beautiful open plan living area, whilst retaining many of the original features. High ceilings, original oak beams and deep-silled windows are complemented by a large wood burner, wood flooring and colour co-ordinated soft furnishings throughout. Stairs lead up from the living room to a mezzanine floor above, providing a second living room, which also doubles as a second bedroom with a deep leather sofa that converts to a double bed if required.
Set away from the main house, with its own pretty patio areas, both front and back, The Barn enjoys peace and quiet as well as stunning views across the open countryside. Visitors are welcome to wander the woodland grounds and enjoy the pretty walks all around. The Barn is situated in the small hamlet of Kildary with numerous lovely walks direct from the door. The thriving small town of Tain, Scotland’s oldest Royal Burgh, is 5 miles away. There are a number of supermarkets here, as well as a good selection of pubs, restaurants, cafés and shops. For those who enjoy a ’wee dram’, Glenmorangie, Dalmore and Balblair distilleries are all close by and open to the public. The pretty Seaboard villages of Balintore, Shandwick and Portmahomack are just 10 minutes’ drive away, and the beach at the Royal Burgh of Dornoch lies just 15 miles to the north. Golfer’s are spoilt for choice, with Tain, Alness and Golspie courses within close proximity and the renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club nearby, which is ranked 5th in the world. Wildlife is abundant in the area; red kites and buzzards frequently wheel overhead and owls are often heard in the garden at night. Deer are also regularly seen close by. Beach 6 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    We had a wonderful relaxing week at the Barn. It is a thoughtfully converted space with every comfort, set in a private and beautiful setting. The wildlife outside the window was particularly magical. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and a lovely welcome pack much appreciated. We will be back soon!

    We loved our stay in the Barn, it had everything anyone could need, a great layout and choice of furnishings. The welcome pack was a lovely, a nice surprise, full of everything we like. Everything was good quality, clean and as shown in the photographs. Neale and Linda were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. There were plenty of seating areas outside to chill with a wine or wee dram. Very handy for the local amenities, shops leisure centres, walks, fantastic beaches, distilleries (Glenmorangie, Balblair and Dalmore...a little bit further north to Clyneleish.) and golf courses. Would highly recommend The Barn and local area.

    We had a fantastic stay at the Barn for just under a week. We stay in cottages around the UK regularly and this was the best equipped and thought out one we have ever stayed in, especially for being dog friendly (with stair gate, poo bags, bowls and blankets). It was a true home from home, with many elements supplied from washing up liquid to washing powder, to cleaning products and kitchen roll - this has often not been our experience and having to supply anything more than basics when you’re self catering can be a bit of a pain for a week. The hosts were amazing, friendly and knowledgeable about the area, as well as ensuring you had everything you needed and that things like the wood baskets were always filled and ready. The Barn has been beautifully renovated and provides top class accommodation for up to four people - we had a great time and would definitely return in the future.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a fab review. We are thrilled your stay was such a success and that we had managed to include everything needed to make your stay with us a memorable one. We do hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
