    About this property

    Enjoy a family holiday at any time of year with many attractions and activities including gardens, castles, skiing and admiring the beautiful scenery.
    Peacefully set just 2 miles from Alford in the beautiful county of Aberdeenshire amid the pastoral countryside of a 400-acre mixed working farm, this delightful semi-detached property was the former Coach House to Whitehaugh House. 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. Visit Haughton Country Park, or one of the many magnificent castles in the area such as Castle Fraser, Kildrummy Castle with its impressive gardens, or the fairytale Craigievar Castle. 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. Shops, pub and restaurants 2 miles.

    "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."
