Set in a remote spot at the end of a mile of private track near Alford, Aberdeenshire is Coldwells Cottage, a detached rural house in a pretty garden that is ideal for couples looking for a romantic countryside retreat.
The main living space inside is really bright and inviting and has been laid out open plan with a chic kitchen area at one end, comfy seating at the other and breakfast bar dining in between. Biomass heating keeps it all nice and cosy, although there is also the option of the wood-burning stove that is quite blissful to spend the evening in front of watching a film or enjoying a wee dram.
The stylish bathroom has the choice of a walk-in shower or a luxurious rolltop bath and the seating in the charming sunroom is great for taking in the view out over the garden to the surrounding fields and beautiful hills beyond.
There is a utility area in the entrance hall with laundry facilities and storage for shoes and boots, etc and stairs from the sitting room lead up to the spacious double bedroom with its king-size bed.
Outside the large covered porch area is useful for drying dogs or removing outerwear. A patio area wraps around the house with steps leading down to the rest of the garden which has been laid to grass with a seating area for picnics or barbeques and views for miles around. The owners live just across the way so are on hand for any queries but are happy to leave guests to enjoy themselves.
