This Cottage sits high on the banks of the River Lossie and overlooks Elgin City Centre and the Cairngorm mountains beyond. It has its own private enclosed garden and is located within the grounds of a magnificent Georgian mansion. This secluded location is a haven for wildlife with red squirrels, song birds and deer.
There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a shower and the other with a bath), a large kitchen with dining facilities and a spacious living room with a large table for dining or other activities. We can also provide a cot, highchair and stairgates for those with young families, so six people or seven with an infant, can easily feel at home. All of the rooms are at ground level except for one bedroom which is in a raised tower. This room has bunk beds with comfortable mattresses so is suitable for adults or with its large collection of children's books, puzzles, a DVD-player and TV, it also forms an exciting, ready-made den for children who are old enough to not neeed supervision so aged perhaps 5 years or more.
The private garden is enclosed with lawns, mature fruit trees, shrubs, patio areas and areas for alfresco dining, relaxing, exploring and playing games after a busy day. A selection of garden games are provided such as swing-ball to keep everyone amused.
Two convenience stores, two pubs, two fast food takeaways and a bus stop are just outside the pillared gates and a Tesco superstore, a leisure centre and Elgin city centre are just a short stroll away. Riverside paths and Cooper Park adjacent the site provide fantastic places for country walks.
The Cottage has free oil-fired central heating to keep it cosy throughout, free Wi-Fi, free electricity for reasonable use and is well equipped both inside and out. It is perfect for family holidays, quiet breaks, touring, golfing, fishing and walking.
