Hidden by tall trees and surrounded by acres of rolling green fields, this converted Victorian Dwelling offers a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Let your daily stresses fade away as you drive through the idyllic Knockespoch Estate to this charming cottage. Surrounded by uninterrupted countryside views with a wide variety of wildlife on the doorstep, it's a peaceful, secluded house perfect for a quiet getaway.
There's plenty of space outdoors for the dog to explore, and plenty inside when it's time to warm up too. Curl up on one of the comfortable sofas with the wood burner roaring and let Mutley take the prime spot on the sheepskin rug. You may even spot deer wandering past the windows. If the day has been very long and the great outdoors has taken its toll, get the fire burning in the bedroom for a real taste of luxury, and snuggle under the crisp white linens on the king-sized bed with a magazine. Early risers can enjoy coffee in the sunporch as the gardens come to life - woodpeckers, red squirrels and pine martens are all regular visitors. The modern kitchen with dining table is well-equipped to rustle up a hearty brunch or a leisurely dinner, and there's a BBQ outside if the weather is kind.
The estate spreads over 300 acres so you may well be content to wander through the grounds with the dog, but if you do fancy venturing further afield, the 3 mile climb up Tap o' Noth which is home to the second-highest hillfort in Scotland is 13 miles away. Craigievar Castle is also 13 miles from the house, and those with a penchant for a wee dram should not miss a trip to Dufftown where there are 11 distilleries, many of which are open for tours, including Glenfiddich where enthusiasts can even bottle their own malt to take home.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
