Lovingly renovated and updated, The Coach House is spacious and its comfortable interior makes a perfect place to relax and unwind after a day enjoying the scenery and activities of this lovely part of Scotland. Skirted by the beautiful River Don and surrounded by the hills of Bennachie and Coreen, the area is ideal to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Salmon and trout fishing on the river can be arranged with the owner.
    Enjoy a day out at Alford Transport Museum, Heritage Museum or Railway Museum, where visitors can enjoy a taste of times gone by on one of the beautifully restored trains.

The many footpaths and walks in the area are an excellent way to take in the surrounding countryside and views. Golfers can enjoy some lovely courses nearby, including one in Alford itself. The ski slopes of the Lecht offer seasonal skiing and snowboarding when the conditions permit, and Alford also has a dry ski slope. There is easy access to the famous Whisky Trail. For a more cosmopolitan day out, the vibrant city of Aberdeen is only 25 miles away, with its wealth of shops, cultural attractions and eating places. Beach 27 miles.

    "An amazing house to stay in, very clean, warm and extremely comfortable. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Lovely area to explore and the land around the house is ideal for walking the dog."

    "A spacious and well appointed cottage. The owners were very friendly and helpful."
    Donna ‐ 25 Aug 2019
    "We spent a wonderful fortnight staying in the Coach House. Its location is quiet and peaceful, and the owners made us feel very welcome. The house is very spacious and comfortable, and Alford (which is a mile or so away) has good amenities. The Coach House was a great base from which to see this lovely part of Scotland. There are many castles within easy reach, and the area is great for walking and wildlife. We particularly liked Bennachie, the summits of which can be seen from the Coach House. We would definitely stay here again when visiting this part of Scotland."

    "Excellent location very quiet and peaceful owners were very friendly and helpful . Plenty of places to visit locally would recommend the Grampian transport museum in Alford and also the Haughton house county park ."

    "Charming hosts, all 3 of them! The cottage is peaceful and spacious and well situated for places of interest. Loved the burn beside the cottage. The beds and bed linen were possibly the best we had experienced. Two very good eating places in Alford and a well stocked Co-op with helpful staff!"

    "The Coach House is beautifully presented spacious and bright. Well equipped and comfortable beds. Lovely welcome from the owner Douglas and a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge ( who needs more ) Great area for touring around Aberdeenshire and super walks from the door. We had a brilliant weekend and are already planning our return. Thank you."
    Emma ‐ 19 Feb 2019
    "We had a lovely weekend at the Coach House, it was perfect for our family gathering. We were made to feel very welcome and all enjoyed the welcome pack! Beautiful house and surroundings. Thank you."
    Sara ‐ 3 Jan 2019
    "The seven of us and two dogs stayed over the Christmas period. Beautiful location and accommodation. Surrounded by breathtaking views. The house is spacious, with a modern look whilst in keeping with its surroundings. An open log fire in the sitting room is excellent for the colder evenings. You are greated upon arrival by Doug (& Mandy) who are very welcoming and the perfect hosts. The house has a “home from home” feel with a fully equipped kitchen. The house is situated at the end of a private track, ideal for walks. Alford is a short drive or a good walk to the local shops (Co op) and town. The Alford Bistro offers lovely meals, coffee, tea & cake. Overall The Coach House is an excellent accommodation and we would highly recommend and happily stay there again."

    "Beautiful peaceful cottage, situated with no through traffic at the end of a farm road. The house is very spacious, with a lot of modern facilities but still retaining its character. Short journey to local shops and plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area. Nice to relax in front of an open log fire in the evening. The owners are very helpful with local knowledge (especially Mandy) and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely come back to this cottage just because of the amazing Mandy and her beautiful dog Ben who came to visit us every day and seems to love everybody. It was a pleasure to stay in their former home. Highly recommend for those wanting a restful respite from town or city life."

    "An absolutely amazing holiday, great location, great house. Very enjoyable."
