Set above the River Findhorn in a valley in rural Nairn-shire, Banchor Cottage is an idyllic countryside retreat for those who are seeking a bit of peace and quiet. The cottage has been decorated and furnished to provide comfortable holiday accommodation for both families and sporting parties alike. Banchor Cottage contains two open fires, making it gloriously cosy on those chilly evenings. The spacious kitchen has been recently upgraded and contains everything you could need during your stay. There is plenty of space for everyone to gather round the table in the kitchen, which is perfect for breakfast time and quick lunch breaks when everyone is desperate to get back outside to explore. The formal dining room is the hub of the house, so pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy some relaxation beside the fire. Each of the three bedrooms are of a good size and the main bathroom has been recently freshened up, providing a great self catering home for all to enjoy.
As a fantastic fishing cottage on the Cawdor Castle Estate, Banchor Cottage is set in a lovely position overlooking the Banchor beat where you can do some salmon fishing for yourself (with prior arrangement with the owner). For those wishing to have a relaxing holiday in the Highlands, there are plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling amongst the scenic backdrop of the Drynachan valley. Partridges, pheasants, deer and various other wildlife are often spotted near the cottage itself, so grab some binoculars and see how many you can spot during your time here. A visit to Banchor Cottage is not complete without stopping by at Cawdor Castle, a 14th century castle with beautiful gardens that is rich with history. There is even a nine-hole golf course within the grounds too! However you decide to spend your break, Banchor Cottage is the perfect escape for those looking to experience a truly rural retreat.
