"Far exceeded our expectations."
It is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. We would give it 6 stars if we could. Will be immediately be booking a return visit
"Excellent stay, great hosts and everything that we needed was supplied and the welcome gifts were an added treat."
Ideally situated to explore the Cairngorms and the West coast. Impeccably kept property throughout and the leisure suite with hot tub and sauna make The Little Chestnut a perfect place to relax and unwind. The BBQ cabin was a great experience and just finished off the holiday perfectly…..
"We had a great week in the house and would definitely come back."
"Little chestnut is truly an outstanding property, a ‘W O W ‘house ,every home comfort you need, with few extra features."
The Hot tub so lovely to relax in & a comfortable bed to sleep in at end of day’s sightseeing. Cleanliness second to none!!! On arrival we were greeted by Ken, a very warm friendly man, unfortunately we didn’t meet Theresa , but did communicate before our holiday, which was very helpful & informative, recommended few places to see & as everything went smoothly in the house we didn’t need to bother them. We were left a lovely welcome pack which was appreciated. The garden was beautiful, pity it wasn’t summertime as I’m sure it’ll be a lovely garden to relax in! Our first visit to Scotland, absolutely stunningly beautiful country with gorgeous scenery, very friendly people,loved it , thinking of visiting ? then I’d highly suggest you book ‘little chestnut’ you won’t be disappointed.
"I must express my astonishment!"
If you ever have the opportunity to reside in this location, you will undoubtedly find it to be exceptional. This establishment offers an array of amenities that exceed one's expectations—ample space, a cosy atmosphere, and every need meticulously addressed. The sole regret we experienced was having to bid farewell.
"The house is a home from home."
Clean and well maintained to a high standard. Very private location. Couldn't fault the property or service provided. The owners are very friendly.
"This is the most awesome holiday home!"
Everything you could ever want is there, plus the wonderful owners!!
"We have just spent 2 weeks staying at Little Chestnut which is the perfect holiday home."
In fact is one of the best properties we have stayed in. It was quiet, private and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It was also immaculately clean which has not always been the case with a couple of previous properties we have stayed in. The added extras of the hot tub and sauna were very much enjoyed especially by our teenage son. The photos on Sykes do not do this place justice. We would definitely recommend and we hope to return very soon. It is a great base for exploring the Highlands. We have had a fabulous holiday. Thank you to Theresa & Ken for such a fabulous place.
"Great hosts ."
Lovely accommodation Location is ideal for touring
Home from home.
Amazing house and location. Can’t fault it allows you to unwind and recharge.
"A beautiful property, in a wonderful location."
The main house has everything you could want, the decoration and furnishings are perfect. The external leisure suite is an ideal way to begin or end the day. Would definitely visit again.
"Lovely clean property with outstanding facilities."
Great base to tour the Highlands.
"Lovely place to stay."
Everything you could possibly need has been provided and the house is in a great location to explore the Highlands.
"Little Chestnut was an amazing house,the perfect retreat and it was in a lovely location, it was well equipped with everything and more that you might need, plus added extras hot tub, sauna and a bbq hut."
Lovely welcome gifts too. would highly recommend.
"Well appointed cottage."
Amazing hot tub/sauna/bbq facilitiy. Handy for touring Black Isle and the Highlands
"Excellent facilities, very clean, easy to check-in and a great location."
Everyone friendly both on arrival and leaving the place is very private with plenty of parking and the feeling that you are on the middle of a wooded park. You have everything you need and more with the hot tub and sauna in a brilliant separate facility for all weathers. The BBQ hut was brillianl and made you feel you we on Finland.
"Fabulous house, amazing leisure suite with the barbecue cabin the icing on the cake!"
Owners available if you need them, but the house is still very private. Hope to stay again 5*
"Lovely stay with fantastic facilities."
"We greatly enjoyed our stay in "Liitle Chesnut" which is really a full size 3-bedroom property, extremely well equipped and immaculately clean."
Anyone who appreciates Quality, Style, and Good Planning need look no further than this property. The owners, Theresa, Ken, and daughter Louise are discreetly on hand next door if required, and yet you have total privacy. A lot of thought has gone into the presentation of the property and it shows throughout. In addition to a very comfortable home for your stay the location is excellent for day trips out should you wish, with easy access to east and west coasts, and a little further gets you to the top of the British mainland. Thanks very much to our hosts. Ann & David Wallwork
"The property is absolutely stunning and finished to a very high standard."
When entering the property it's clear that attention to detail and cleanliness is extremely important to the owners and this reflects through out the property. Everything you need is available including towels and bedding. There are also additional towels, robes and slippers available for use within the hot tub/ sauna which is a fantastic addition to the property as well as a bbq house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay within Little Chessnut and wouldn't hesitate to book again.
"Little Chestnut is a great home to stay in!"
it is very clean, modern, worm and well equipped house. Host is very friendly and warm welcome! House benefits a lot from hot tube and sauna, and bbq house. it is very quite as well, and very relaxing to stay in. Highly recommend this place.
"Stunning! absolutely 5* would recomend this property,it was so clean it felt brand new, the facilities were perfect,great location to tour the highlands local shops have all you need, The pictures do not do justice ths property is stunning and spotless would deffinately return."
You will not be dissapointed.
"Great base from which to tour the local area."
The property is immaculately presented with great leisure facilities. 10/10
"Nothing to say about accommodation only the poor service provided by Sykes Couldn’t even respond to an email complaint or do anything to help us."
Will certainly refrain from using their services any time soon even though we have booked over 30 holidays previously - you certainly let us down this time.
"Little Chestnut was a beautiful cottage, perfect for a relaxing holiday but a great location to explore the surrounding area."
The hot tub was lovely as was the whole place.
"The accommodation was lovely, and the additional facilities like the hot tub, sauna and BBQ hut were amazing."
The hosts were lovely and had left some really nice touches for us. However, we found the beds very uncomfortable- this could just be personal preference but they are very soft and we struggled to sleep. The sofas had very low backs which was quite uncomfortable too. Because of this, we could not relax comfortably on our holiday but if they changed the sofas and mattresses this would've been the best accommodation we've ever stayed in.
"Wow what can I say - little chestnut was simply amazing - the cleanliness was on a different level - both owners were fantastic warm and welcoming- they explained everything and was only to happy to offer to ring local places if we wanted to book meals etc but even though their house is attached they gave us perfect privacy- they have thought of literally everything you will want for nothing in little chestnut- the standard of the home is exceptional and the facilities are fantastic- we cannot express how much we enjoyed ourselves in this wonderful holiday let - the location is great and we certainly used the owners recommendations on day trips - we have had a great rest due to the sauna and hot tub facilities and bbq hut and everyone in the village and surrounding villages were so friendly - I have recommended little chestnut to as meny friends as I can and don’t be surprised if we rebook in the future !"
!! Thank you so much to the owners ❤️
"Absolutely amazing holiday home with hot tub and sauna and everything you need."
.wonderful quiet location will definitely be back... highly recommended...
"The Little Chestnut was absolutely perfect."
We received a warm welcome from Teressa plus a chilled bottle of Prosecco. Teressa also loaned us a map and gave us some travel tips too. The house had everything you could need for a perfect break. There is plenty of room for six people and even children's cutlery. There is lots of room outside too and even undercover parking for one car. All the washing and drying facilities you need. It was so peaceful, quiet and secluded. This is the perfect holiday home and a great base for exploring Scotland. I highly recommend the Little Chestnut.
"Our holiday was made amazing by this lovely property which was described perfectly."
Secluded and modern, the property was lovely, clean, tidy and had all mod cons with additional touches to make the holiday easier. Fantastic.
"What can we say about Litttle Chestnut, that hasn’t already been said in earlier reviews."
It’s a great place to stay at and the area caters for a large variety of reasons why you should consider booking it. The Family have done an awesome job in creating the right environment with everything that’s included/ needed. It wants for nothing (hot tube/ sauna & BBQ) and is within easy walking reach of the Town and other amenities. Coming back to reality, the prices for 2022 are a big difference compared to 2021 though. SButler
"Great place to stay ,excellent facilities and good position for touring the Highlands in Scotland."
Also there is under cover for motorcycles if its raining and a brilliant Hot-tub to ease those aches and pains after a good day riding.
"More than expected this cottage was brilliant with everything that we needed and much more The leisure suite was lovely so much thought has been put into this."
Little Chestnut is immaculate and spacious. Everything is quality , even the crockery , pots and pans etc was of a really high standard. Muir of Ord is a great base for exploring the highlands and my husband enjoyed the nearby golf course and we all had a great time on a boat trip on Loch Ness .We went to book for next year but we just can’t afford the jump in price. Which is such a shame but understandable with the current situation .This year we paid £838.00 including booking fee, but the same week next year it will be £1369.00 which is just to much of a jump for us. We loved this place and are sad we wont be able to return because of how the price has jumped for all weeks. Otherwise we would have no hesitation in booking this property again
"Nicest holiday cottage we’ve ever stayed in."
The house was spotless and the facilities were fantastic! Hot tub and bbq hut were also a bonus! Close to the station and co-op and not too far away from Inverness town and other attractions. Would love to stay again!
"Very private and quiet part of the village."
Hosts were charming and professional. Very central for our needs. Would definitely visit again. Geraldine and family.
"Little Chestnut is the perfect holiday home, and so much more."
Every single little detail has been thought of, and it has everything you could possibly need to ensure a great holiday. Highly recommended. Thank u Theresa.
"We first stayed at Little Chestnut 4 years ago and it is still as immaculate as it was back then, everything you could possibly need and lovely friendly owners who go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay."
Well worth the long drive up from Cornwall, we had an amazing holiday.
"Beautiful house - immaculately clean and tidy - great location - have booked again for next year!"
"Little Chestnut really was like a home from home."
The quality and range of facilities was excellent and the owners are welcoming and very helpful. The whole family were very happy with our stay.
"Great holiday in perfect accommodation."
Little Chestnut is modern, immaculate and spacious and Muir of Ord is a great base for exploring the highlands. Days out to Rosemarkie, Dornoch and Loch Affric; climbed Ben Wyvis and Stac Polliadh. All in all a wonderful fortnight
"A beautiful house and facilities are brilliant"
"This is the second time we have stayed at Little Chestnut with our family at Christmas, and the experience was awesome as ever."
The Christmas decorations and well equipped kitchen made it all effortless. Everything is high quality and absolutely lovely. Theresa is friendly and welcoming. The hot tub, sauna and outdoor barbeque are a real bonus for relaxing after days out exploring the local area. Would recommend a visit to the Bad Girls Bakery just around the corner, or a browse around the School House in Beauly. All in all an outstanding place to stay.
"This was probably one of the most accommodating cottages we have ever stayed in you literally want for nothing."
There simply isn't anything else to say about the place. If there is a down side(and this is purely a personal opinion) it's not remote enough there is nowhere to go for walks as your located in the village centre, and with exception of the thousands of geese flying overhead there is no wildlife full stop didn't even see a bird in the garden. If they were located a little more remotely I'd have booked for next October already. This apart the "little chestnut" is a little gem and to those of you who just want to relax get yourself booked in before it's to late you won't be disappointed 10/10 easily
"Little Chestnet was a brilliant house even better than the pictures."
All aspected of our stay was covered including towel robes for hot tub and sauna. House stunning and very private and central location for where ever you wanted to go.
"We stayed at Little Chestnut in April 2017 through Sykes and enjoyed our stay."
Muir of Ord is ideally situated to meet our needs for access to wildlife and nature which we love.
"Fantastic Accommodation in a great location, facilities second to none."
"Great cottage with a lovely hot tub and within walking distance of Glen Ord distillery."
What more do you need on holiday!
"Beautiful cottage just like photos ."
Owner in house next door very friendly helpful Lots of extras for when we arrived toilet rolls wash up liquid. Cleaning products bbq coals etc Nice bottle Prosecco infridge cooling we had food delivery this was all put away for us We were a family of 6 plenty of space It was truly like a home from home Would go again and recommend to family and friends
"We loved the BBQ in a hut Shame the weather was so good"
"Chestnut was a wonderful cottage."
We enjoyed every moment of our stay.
"We were on Honeymoon and what away to start our marriage life, the cottage was really lovely we couldn't have asked for better and the host & hostess couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect."
"Great accommodation, spacious, very clean, comfortable- felt private and peaceful despite being attached to owners property."
Owners kindly took in our food delivery so that everything was ready for arrival. Warm welcome including a nice bottle - thank you! Hot tub and BBQ hut fantastic. Beautiful area with plenty to do for our young family. Would recommend highly.
"This is our third return visit and most certainly won’t be the last!"
"This is our second time and we have enjoyed our stay."
We recommend this place and also would love to return again.
"Little chestnut was very lovely!"
And the owners were brilliant! Highly recommend!
"Was a home from home."
Everything that was needed to make the week enjoyable was there.
"A great little private place to spend time with family."
Very comfortable facilities and easy driving to surrounding areas.
"This cottage was more than the complete package, it was the best one we have been to yet."
"We have been staying in rented holiday properties over a period of 48 years."
In every assessment category, Little Chestnut is by far the best we have used. The attention to detail in construction, finish, cleanliness, neatness and general ambience, the range of equipment and facilities available and the quietness, privacy and location made this the perfect holiday home. A real credit to the owners and to Sykes.
"Excellent property, very friendly owners."
"Location is very good for exploring the highlands ."
Can’t fault the accommodation

The cottage was amazing and is ideal for going sight seeing then returning to a night in the hot tub what more could you ask and the people who own the cottage could not be more helpful or welcoming a trip of a lifetime I would give it 11 out of 10
"This 5 star cottage is absolutely fantastic the owners have thought of everything from underfloor heating to the hot tub sauna and indoor bbq which we unfortunately didn't get to use as we were both full of cold but would most certainly have used if tbis had not been the case."
The owers ken and teresa made us most welcome and were there to meet us on arrival and ran throgh everything with us and then left us to our own devices wirh instructions just to knock if we needed anything as they only live next door. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we are in the area again and will definitely recommend little chestnut to our family and friends
"It lived up to expectations."

Nothing was too much problem. The house is beautiful and we'll equipped, the hot tub, sauna were spotless and the scenery around the area was breathtaking.

This most impressive and immaculately-presented semi-detached cottage is privately situated in the pretty village of Muir of Ord, just north of the Highland capital city Inverness.
Little Chestnut is set beside the owner’s home, but offers complete privacy to guests who wish to pamper themselves in this luxurious property.
The cottage is ideal for a family or group of friends who will not only appreciate the beauty of the area, but also the comfort, style and facilities in this property.
A tarmac driveway leads around to the front door and large parking area and you will be immediately impressed with the style and space both inside and out.
With great attention to detail, the owners have provided thoughtful extras to ensure guests want for nothing.
At ground floor level there is a sociable open plan kitchen/dining room that leads through to a sunny sitting room, a perfect place for family relaxation.
On the ground floor are a king-size double bedroom and contemporary shower room, with two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.
The property simply oozes style and comfort, and just a few yards across the courtyard is a detached log cabin fitted out with a generously proportioned hot tub, a sauna and shower facilities.
Next door to the leisure suite is a fabulous BBQ hut where cooking on the large central fire will be an exciting experience and guests will certainly enjoy the ambience of the hut along with a glass of wine or two!
Muir of Ord has good local facilities, including a golf club, plus there are a number of clubs within a 20 mile radius.
There's also so much to see and do in this magnificent region.
A trip to Loch Ness for some monster spotting is always fun or perhaps try some pony trekking at the nearby stables.
Leaving Little Chestnut will be tough as this is a fabulous holiday home for all ages, but you can rest assured that you can always book to return next year!
About the location
MUIR OF ORD
Beauly 2.5 miles.
The small Highland village of Muir of Ord, based on the North Coast 500, lies close to the Beauly Firth and is conveniently situated for easy access to the village of Beauly, town of Dingwall and the capital city of the Highlands, Inverness, some 15 miles to the east. The village of Muir of Ord is a peaceful location to explore the Highlands, with all the required amenities – butchers, bakers, chemist, petrol station, pharmacy, and Co-op. Another major attraction is the Glen Ord Distillery and Visitor Centre, a 5 star award-winning visitor experience, which is open all the year round and well worth a visit. Locally, there is Muir of Ord golf course and an abundance of nice cycle routes and walks including Ben Wyvis. Just a few miles away the village of Beauly offers a quality shopping experience, where visitors can find the finest Scottish tweeds, knitwear and crafts as well as a number of intimate hotels and cafes.
The whole area known as ‘The Black Isle’ has some of the prettiest scenery in Scotland with stunning glens where flora and fauna abound. Nearby Glen Affric, a National Nature Reserve, has been called the most beautiful of all the Scottish glens, and is an ideal location for walkers and cyclists with quiet tracks leading you off road and deep into the glen.
