Property Description

Set in superb country house gardens and bounded by an original high stone wall, The Maid’s Cottage is a 400 year old cottage which is impeccably presented and tastefully decorated throughout. Located in the grounds of the historic Oldmills House, in a quiet backwater surrounded by open fields and trees, yet within easy walking distance of Elgin, this delightful holiday cottage provides a high standard of accommodation in a peaceful yet accessible location. On the ground floor there is a large lounge with deep leather sofas and superb views across the lovely gardens. The bright modern kitchen / dining room is beautifully presented and well equipped. There are two charming bedrooms and a superb shower room, accessed via the main bedroom as well as from the landing, via three steps. The gardens are a real feature of the cottage. With lawns, mature flowering shrubs and trees, and lovely views across open countryside, they are the epitome of a country house garden. Whilst being in a quiet country setting, the Maid’s Cottage is just a 10 minute walk to the centre of Elgin. This lovely old town, with its ancient Cathedral and attractive stone buildings provides an excellent selection of amenities. There is a wealth of activities for visitors right on the doorstep. Excellent golf courses and cycling trails abound; the area is also renowned for its fishing. Close by Lossiemouth and Findhorn have fabulous sandy beaches and provide many opportunities for enjoying the local water-sports, including sailing, kayaking and canoeing. The Moray Firth coast is also renowned for its sea-life, particularly the bottle-nosed dolphins and colonies of seals that are regularly spotted close to shore. Further inland, the famous ‘Whisky’ and ‘Castle’ Trails beckon, and for winter sports enthusiasts, the Cairngorm mountain range is a must.
