Property Description

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 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.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Property was one of the best we have stayed in. The cottage was superbly fitted out. Lovely kitchen and dining areas. Comfortable and spacious living area and the bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent. Everything was provided and the views from the cottage were outstanding. Sept 2012.
  2. The best we have been in everything was excellent. May 2012.
  3. One of the best cottages we have stayed in, first class finish top quality amenities would highly reccomend this cottage to anyone. April 2012.
  4. Very spacious property. Ideal for families who want space for kids to run around inside. Modern minimalist feel. Nice oak furniture. You may feel a bit like you ought to tell kids to be very careful as it’s so new that there’s no marks on white walls and beige carpet! The castle is a must. Beaches are fantastic. Needs bigger saucepans - not suitable for large family cooking unless they add to collection. Would recommend. March 2012.
  5. The accommodation is excellent with high quality furnishings and plenty of space. It is warm and very comfortable even when it snows! The situation is rural but there is just so much to do with castles, the coast, Aberdeen and country walks all around you. It is adjacent to a wonderful art gallery and a historic castle. Both are well worth visiting. March 2012.
  6. This property exceeded our expectations. Whilst there were other properties close by, we re not aware of other people being there. This accommodation was first class and we had a lovely time. We would definitely consider renting again and have already recommended this to our friends. Dec 2011.
  7. This property was very clean, tidy and modern. The owner was very helpful showing us around the property, and pointing out points of interest around the area. It was close enough to shops and restaurants and there was plenty to do out and about. Oct 2011.
  8. A fantastic cottage in a beautiful area. We have stayed in many cottages over the years but this is by far the best. The owners are friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Oct 2011.
  9. WOW!! The Coach House is a wonderful building in a fantastic location. Rory and Shona have thought of everything and their attention to detail is second to none.The fixtures and fittings are of a very high quality, and all the rooms are spacious and light. The views from the main living area and the garden are simply stunning, and it was a pleasure to enjoy our evening meal sat out on the patio. The property is a mile from the main road, so is very peaceful and quiet, yet offers easy access to all the local attractions. We enjoyed both the countryside (Balmedie Beach & Bennachie Forest) and Aberdeen City itself (Restaurants, Museums & Galleries). I would not hesitate to recommend a holiday at The Coach House. Aug 2011.
  10. Fantastic accommodation, in a great rural location, included everything necessary for a week long holiday. Modern and clean with plenty of space and excellent quality. Only one suggestion that WiFi could be added to the property. Sept 2011.
  11. An incredibly spacious and well appointed cottage with lovely views over rolling countryside. Local facilities within a short car drive (2 miles to nearest village, 5 miles to the nearest town). Lots to do in the area including castles, gardens, fantastic coastal scenery and excellent walking. May 2011.
