Reviewed by JaneApr 2022 "We had been to Redburn Steading before, so knew how good it was, but we were still impressed, as the new owners have thought of everything…torches in the bedroom drawers, dog bowls, comprehensive information pack etc." The kitchen is well equipped for home cooking, and Ben kindly checked in from time to time to make sure everything was good…which it was!

Reviewed by CarolineJun 2021 "It's an (aspirational) home from home, perfectly located in the countryside, close to excellent biking, walking routes or simply sitting on the garden bench and gazing at the ever changing wonderful scenery - with a drink." A wonderful place to reflect and or be active. The house is larger than it looks in the photographs, plenty of space to spread out. The down stairs double/twin bedroom is wheelchair accessible and ideal for guests not comfortable with stairs. We had our holiday's food supplies delivered to the house by one of the local supermarkets (Tescos, Sainsbury, Asda), so we could focus on optimising our time on holiday. Nick and Ben are excellent hosts, giving us a warm welcome - nothing was too much trouble. It was nice they live a short walk away, as when we had a query or had post being delivered (while we were out) they helped us out. Forres is a 20 minute drive away. Definitely recommendable.
