  • "We had a delightful week's stay in this property."

    Strathpeffer is a unique small town and is central for touring in that part of the country. We particularly enjoyed walking along the Peffery Way which is a former railway branch line to Dingwall. There was a minor problem with the cottage's central heating but the owners bent over backwards and had it repaired in short order. By way of compensation they let us stay on in the cottage for a time.

  • "Both my wife and I when we walked to the cottage how well it looked and how homely it felt."

    If you are after piece and quite cannot go far wrong, the both of us could not believe our luck on all counts the scenery around the area was fantastic plenty to see, best of all our dog loved it too. I think the owners of the cottage have gone the one step farther and we thank them for a great holiday. We have been use to static caravan holidays to book a holiday in cottage for us was extremely out of character for us. We do not regret it one little bit. Cottage holidays from now on. Thank you all for a great time. Yes I am a pensioner so I know what we like.

  • "We had a really lovely holiday at Rose Cottage; it's a perfect cute & quirky little place & a real home from home."

    ..if you like peace & quiet, stunning scenery & gorgeous walks from your doorstep then this is the place to stay. We had our little dog with us, & although there's no garden, there is green space & doggy walks literally outside the front door & back door. Strathpeffer has a sleepy quiet little village centre just a few minutes walk from the cottage. The Deli in the Square & The Station Tea Rooms serve delicious food, & we had a great meal at the doggy friendly Ben Wyvis hotel in the village centre. Everyone we met was so friendly, & there is endless opportunities for great walks in the area. On arrival at the cottage we were greeted with a lovely welcome note & bottle of wine...we highly recommend Rose Cottage!

    It had everything we needed for our week's stay. It is an ideal base for exploring the area - so much to see and do there. There are lots of beautiful walks in the area - we would definitely recommend it.

  • "Had a lovely week in Strathpeffer."

    Rose Cottage is nicely situated with a five minute walk to the centre of the village, and a nice, if hilly, walk behind the cottage, leading around the golf course. The cottage is small but has three bedrooms, plenty for up to four people. Headroom is a bit limited in the main bedroom, but it added to its quaintness. There isn't any outside space to sit but with the Scottish highlands and beaches within a short driving distance, there was plenty of opportunity to get outdoors.

    Nice cottage but couldn’t cook any thing due to a bad smell not sure if it was the microwave or the drawers tried cleaning them but smell was still there so did not use them

  • "A very lovely cottage in a beautiful, historic village."

    A lovely welcoming note from the owner with a gift of shortbread. The accommodation was clean, well maintained, comfortable and had all the mod cons to make it a very enjoyable stay. Close to local amenities and for a drive out to places of interest in the surrounding countryside.

    She was very helpful. Also appreciated that she had written a brief history of the cottage and her family connections.

  • "This was a very well appointed cottage, everything you could possible want to make you feel it was a home from home."

    Loads of hot water and effective heating if required. Spotlessly clean and the little box of shortbread was much appreciated. Lots of local information supplied, and a potted history of the cottage was fascinating. We would definite want to come back.

The property

A charming semi-detached stone cottage on an elevated site overlooking the pretty Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer, in the Scottish Highlands.

This well-presented and most comfortable cottage would suit a small family or a couple who will simply love the quiet and convenient location of this cottage.

Originally built as a farmworkers cottage, Rose Cottage has quite a bit of history and a lot of character.

At ground floor level the spacious sitting room leads through to a well-equipped and homely dining room and kitchen with a door that leads to a rear hallway with an external side door.

Make your way down the path and into the little sun room, away from it, just you and a good book!

The shower room and first single bedroom are also on the ground floor with a further two cottage style bedrooms on the upper 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, just 18 miles away, 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 this welcoming stone 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 be aware this property is suitable for no more than 4 persons. This includes infants.
