The property

Nairn 8 miles.

Elephant House has been architecturally designed and built to an exacting standard using locally-sourced and sustainable materials.

This eco-friendly cottage is set in an amazing location amongst seven acres of unspoilt natural woodland meaning visitors are ensured privacy and space to roam.

Tastefully furnished to a high standard, the bright, spacious and contemporary interior has a large open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen and high quality furnishings.

There is a woodburning stove which is ideal for cosy nights in after an active day.

Relaxing here will be easy and sliding glass doors give access directly out onto your own private decked balcony with views to the woods and surrounding countryside.

There is a smart double bedroom with king-size bed and a shower room with large double cubicle.

Plenty of comfort and style here!

The surrounding land has its own wildlife pond and a converted bus set in the grounds makes a quirky summerhouse, giving guests the option to relax and enjoy a quiet read.

The owners live in the grounds but are situated well away from the cottage and provide a daily supply of fresh produce such as homemade bread, homemade jam and freshly laid eggs, all available from a small shed where an honesty box makes for easy shopping.

Elephant House would be simply perfect for a couple whether it is a honeymoon destination or simply a much needed holiday, as the comfort and surroundings are both romantic and restorative.

Should you wish to leave this little piece of heaven then the location is ideal for touring the area visiting local castles and distilleries and the north east coastline is close by with lovely beaches and interesting fishing villages all worth a visit.

This is a great central location surrounded in great scenery with loads of wildlife and this cottage will ensure a wonderful holiday.
