Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


The Coach House is located next to Tolquhon Gallery and Castle, perfect for that family holiday.

Excellent views

These two 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, and 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 picturesque 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. Shops, pubs and restaurants 3 miles.

    A most enjoyable place to stay with everything thought of within the cottage. The only downside was lack of attention to detail with the cleaning, mould under the slip mats, shower traps not cleaned, mould around the bathroom window frame and thick cobwebs in window corners which I went round and hoovered up.

    First time at the coach house, very spacious, loved the view, nice and quiet. Clean and bright, owners thought of everything. Would recommend it and go back.

    A beautiful house, which had everything we needed with a family of teenagers (including wifi). All the bedrooms were lovely and we all had individual bathrooms so no arguing! A very comfortable lounge with room for us all to spread out. Quite a trek to the shops but we are used to this as we live in the country ourselves, so no big problem and we ordered a delivery of food the day we arrived which helped. We would definitely recommend this house.

    Just back from a wonderful week staying in The Coach House. I never wanted to leave. It is a beautiful property in a superb location, so picturesque and rural yet near enough to Aberdeen and Tarves, Ellon. The house is fully equipped with 3 fantastic bathrooms, the beds are so comfortable and everything was spotless. The owners are super helpful. The only thing that would have improved things for us would be a DAB radio/stereo in the kitchen and the blinds in the living room could do with an upgrade. 10 out of 10 all round! I can't wait to book again.

    The Coach House is one of the very best cottages we have stayed in, and is a real credit to its owners. It is particularly roomy, warm and comfortable. Everything within the control of the owners was spot on (the public access road is fairly narrow, and its condition does not reflect equally well on the no doubt cash-strapped County Council).

    Excellent place to stay, castle next door, good base for the surrounding country. This was our second time at the Coach House and we would stay again. The house is very well appointed, plenty of room and well designed.

    We spent Christmas here and had a great time. The property was very clean and well equipped, and the views from the living room were lovely.
