It has its own private enclosed garden and is tucked away within 5 acres of wooded grounds belonging to a magnificent Georgian mansion. This secluded location is a haven for wildlife with red squirrels, song birds and deer, so with shops and local amenities just a short stroll away, the Cottage offers an exclusive 'country' retreat with all the benefits of city life - in fact the very best of both worlds! There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a shower and the other with a bath), a large kitchen with dining facilities and a spacious living room with a large table for dining. There is a travel cot, a highchair and a stair gate for those with young families, so six people (plus an infant), can easily feel at home. All of the rooms are at ground level except for one bedroom which is in a raised tower. This room has a single bed with an extra trundle bed underneath which can be pulled out to accommodate another. The private garden is enclosed with lawns, mature fruit trees, shrubs, patio areas and areas for alfresco dining, relaxing after a busy day. A few garden games are provided to keep guests amused. The cottage is accessed via an exclusive private drive and there is parking for four or more cars. Two convenience stores, two pubs, two fast food takeaways and a bus stop are just outside the pillared gates and a Tesco superstore, a leisure centre and Elgin centre are just a short stroll away. Riverside paths and Cooper Park adjacent the site provide fantastic places for country walks. The Cottage has oil-fired central heating, free Wi-Fi and is cosy and well equipped. It is perfect for family holidays, quiet breaks, touring, golfing, fishing and walking. There are castles, the Malt Whisky trail, beautiful beaches, the Moray coast and the Cairngorm mountains nearby. It is also convenient for Gordonstoun School and overspill accommodation for relatives of families in Elgin, Lossiemouth and the surrounds. You will be very welcome to stay.More
