Nairn 8 miles.
For something a little bit special 'The Bell' ticks all the boxes.
The stunning private 7 acre woodland setting with its natural pond, secluded seating areas and abundance of wildlife is hard to beat and the house itself is quite striking in design with its curved roof, larch cladding, vaulted ceilings and floor to ceilings windows.
If all that's not enough the interior certainly does not disappoint.
With eco-friendly underfloor heating and a homely yet contemporary style, guest will be most impressed.
The bright spacious accommodation is set out on two floors and the large open plan living area with its woodburner is a sociable place where meals can be prepared with ease and enjoyed together.
Open the doors out onto the large private decked patio and enjoy a quiet read or morning coffee where the only noise is from the birds!
There are two bedrooms and a bathroom at ground floor level and the first floor has another bedroom and a shower room.
A bonus is the large mezzanine style second sitting room with views over the main living area and also benefiting from the floor to ceiling window views.
A stroll around the grounds will take you to the quirky summer house, which is a converted bus!
Fresh home produce such as bread, jam and eggs are available and an honesty box is provided so you can simply help yourself!
Nairn itself has excellent local services and boasts two championship golf courses and of course a wonderful long sandy beach.
The location is ideal for those who want to tour the Highlands and a day trip across the sea to Skye is possible, or closer to home pick up the Malt Whisky Trail and visit the various distilleries.
Culloden Moor is well worth a visit or explore the local castles at Cawdor and Brodie and of course a drive along Loch Ness never goes wrong.
So much to do and what a wonderful, special holiday home to enjoy.
