  • "Absolutely lovely petite cottage in a beautiful part of the world - somewhere different to see every day."

    Beautifully finished, warm and clean. Thanks for the welcome pack! All fittings luxury and top of range making everything feel like a treat. The hot tub was great fun once we worked out how to get it going. Only reason not leaving 100% is the renovation work on adjacent properties is noisy. Once this is finished this will be a perfect and peaceful retreat and I'm hoping to book again for my son + daughter in law. Highly recommend!!

  • "The Hen House is in such a lovely peaceful area."

    It was great to sit in the garden listening to and watching the birds overhead. The smell of the pine trees was fantastic and we even saw an elusive red squirrel on our last day. The accommodation was fabulous for a couple. We would definitely recommend this property and would love to go back again. It's quirky a bit like us! We were out and about a lot and didn't make use of the hot tub. Maybe next time.

  • "The Hen House was a fairy tail residence in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland."

    Fantastic use of space with only the best fixtures, fittings and appliances used. It was immaculate throughout with awesome attention to detail. Added bonus was the excellent outdoor space to relax and BBQ, and the Hot Tub was the dogs! All in all a superb base to explore the magnificent Scottish Highlands…. YES YES YES!!!

  • "We have had a wonderful week in the beautifully renovated Hen House in Belladrum Estate."

    We felt at home within minutes of being here as Pam and team had set the mood with music, wine and chocolate . A belated 46th wedding anniversary treat. Our thanks to Pam for her attention and for sharing her knowledge of the local area with us. Everyone was so friendly and we wish the team all the best on their restoration project. Hopefully we will return in the future. Sally & Bobby Young

  • "Fantastic place."

    Perfect for couples. Did not use the hot tub but think this is an excellent bonus for anyone who fancies giving it a try. Lovely little courtyard. Pity it rained a fair bit and we could not use it much. Peaceful setting, except when they are doing timber work nearby. Great appliances and extra comforts available in kitchen and bathroom. Only thing not too keen on was the armchairs were a little uncomfortable but propped up with pillows they were fine. Others may find them comfortable, it is just my creaky body…loved being able to access Netflix. Great WiFi connection considering such a rural setting.

Delight in a delicious meal for two at the intimate dining table, crack open a bottle of bubbly and drink a toast to making many happy memories in this unique escape.

Continue the evening out in the private garden as you indulge in a dip in the hot tub, gazing at the night's stars whilst appreciating quality time with your significant other; then grab your towels and head back inside to the warmth of the cottage, where you can snuggle up in the breath-taking four-poster bed and watch a movie on TV.

Kick start your days with a rejuvenating rise in the chic bathroom, a wonderful place to prepare for the day that lies ahead.
