  • "Rose Cottage was a very comfortable base for our walking holiday."

    The location in Strathpeffer was convenient yet quiet. The house is well maintained, very clean and well-equipped. The furniture and fixtures are traditional and give the cottage a very cosy atmosphere. I would very happily make a return visit to Rose Cottage if in the area again. It offers very good value for the quality of the accommodation.

    Thank you very much for your review. Delighted you enjoyed your stay at Rose Cottage. Property Owner

The property

Rose Cottage, a charming, semi-detached dwelling rests on an elevated site overlooking the pretty Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer, in the Scottish Highlands.

This well-presented and homely abode will suit a small family or a couple who will simply love its quiet and convenient location, whilst oozing character and charm.

At ground floor level, the spacious sitting room, where you can relax, socialise, and play board games, leads through to a well-equipped and homely kitchen/diner, a haven for preparing and enjoy meals from.

Make your way down the path and into the little sunroom, away from it, just you and a good book, or bask in the sunshine from the pet-friendly courtyard!

The shower room and first single bedroom are also on the ground floor, two further cottage style bedrooms on the first floor.

Strathpeffer is a popular holiday venue due to its great central location, as from here, visitors can head west to the Isle of Skye and explore the fabulous west coast villages or perhaps head into Inverness and savour the delights of the city.

Alternatively, why not take a trip around famous Loch Ness with a visit to the world-famous Urquhart Castle and dolphin spotting at Rosemarkie Beach being a short drive away.

However staying closer to your highland cottage is also a great idea and a lovely woodland walk starts right on your doorstep.

For golfers, a course is just a short walk away and fishermen have excellent local opportunities too.

Strathpeffer attracts many visitors, especially during the summer months when the local pipe band come out to play and entertain the visitors.

This is a great holiday location, and Rose Cottage ticks all the boxes.

About the location


Inverness 20 miles.

Often compared to a Bavarian Mountain resort, the picturesque spa village of Strathpeffer owes its growth to the discovery of water springs during the 1700s, and was declared in 1819 to be the healthiest drinking water in Britain! The original Spa Pavilion has been magnificently restored after a period of disuse and now serves as a venue for a variety of events, including concerts, dances, dramas and exhibitions. The former Victorian railway station, which in times past brought many visitors from near and far, has now been beautifully restored to house craft workers and their shops, and is also home to the Highland Museum of Childhood. Visit the restored Pump house (also a Tourist Information point), take a walk along a forest track, or enjoy the views from the nearby pictish hill fort at Knockfarrel. Whatever you decide there's plenty on offer for all the family.

Please note the property will accept pets until the 14 June 2024
