If you are looking for a real 'home from home', with a warm, relaxed atmosphere, comfy beds, super showers and great food - situated in a quiet,tranquil setting - then we think you’ll like it here ...
Situated on the stunning Moray Firth between a patchwork of rolling fields and enchanting woodland, surrounded by wildlife, sits a cosy, friendly retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Located just over 5 minutes drive from the old fishing village of Cullen, West Manse is conveniently located for all the attractions of North East Scotland. From historic castles and quaint distilleries, picturesque harbours and miles of clean, sandy beaches to stunning golf courses, long and short distance walks and fabulous fishing opportunities.
West Manse was built in the early 1840's as a home for the Free Kirk minister and retains much of it's Victorian character alongside 21st century comforts. The garden attracts a host of birds, from siskins to woodpeckers, there is a wildlife pond with newts, frogs and dragonflies - and badgers and pine martens frequently pop by for supper!
We have two double rooms for guests. Ker overlooks the front garden and has a stunning private bathroom next door (with double ended bath and separate shower) whilst Morrison looks into the adjoining woodland and has a lovely en-suite shower room. Both have king size beds with Egyptian cotton bedlinen, plenty of towels, cosy bathrobes, ipod/phone docks, hairdryer and other little extras that may come in useful. We have made the decision not to have TVs in our bedrooms but there are TV's downstairs so you won't miss anything!
Evening meals, packed lunches and early breakfasts can all be provided and we cater for the special requirements of cyclists, walkers, anglers and golfers with storage and drying facilities. Pete also has a keen interest in both Scottish history and local heritage and may be able to assist you with any genealogical enquiries.
