Larchfield Chalet 2 description

Holiday home
This is a lovely custom-built timber chalet that offers bright, well-maintained accommodation and is warm and welcoming. It is an unusual alternative to a traditional cottage. The accommodation is set out on the ground floor and the chalet has two bedrooms; one double and one twin room. The fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting room are on open plan and the sitting room has doors to a veranda with furniture. Along with the veranda there is a shared gravel area and the property enjoys an elevated position overlooking Strathpeffer with superb views. This property is well placed to take advantage of all the amenities and attractions this lovely part of the world has to offer all year round.

Strathpeffer is a lovely little spa town 20 miles from Inverness and only four and a half miles from Dingwall. The town grew up after the spring waters were discovered in the 1700s. In 1819 the waters were pronounced to be the healthiest in Britain and visitors to the town can still sample their delights in the old pump house. There are numerous walks around the area and the mountains of Glen Affric and the North West Highlands are close by. There is also good fishing to be enjoyed on lochs or rivers. The old Victorian Railway Station in Strathpeffer now serves as the Highland Museum of Childhood and no doubt will spark many memories. It is also home to local craft workers and shops selling their wares. A great base for exploring this lovely region.

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

The couple who own this property have thought of everything; they go beyond a level of excellence. The chalet was a home from home with a relaxing ambiance.

It was peaceful and quiet, a lovely spot. There were lots of places to visit and superb scenery. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The shopping was excellent in Dingwall and Cockburn's haggis is to die for!

The owners were absolutely brilliant people, they were very helpful and made sure that we were very comfortable. We wanted a nice family break and we had it. The cottage is so cosy and comfortable. My children had a lovely time too and it was so relaxing. This is the best holiday I have had in years. It is tucked away in the mountains and is so peaceful and quiet. I just wanted a break, and that is exactly what I had. Would recommend this cottage to anyone.

We enjoyed the location it was peaceful and quiet. Really happy with the chalet and the local amenities were a five minute drive away. Also pleased we were able to take the dog with us. If peace and quiet is what you are looking for then this place is idyllic, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hopefully we will be back in the future.

The peace and quiet. The views were lovely especially after the snowfall. Great for our dog, she loved the walks. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely break.
Mr Johnstone
November 2011
Owners were friendly and very helpful with questions about the area. No problems with the accommodation whatsoever. Ideal for us as we have two Labradors. Hassle free relaxing time away from home. Not often that we get time off together and we would go back tomorrow if we could.

I loved the secluded location of the property and also the height that it sat within the Strathpeffer Valley - the views were gorgeous! I loved that although quiet and secluded we were close for driving to Dingwall, Inverness and Cromarty - not to mention close to attractions such as The Black Isle Brewery and the Black Isle Wildlife and Country Park - making it a truly brilliant location all round! And finally, what made the holiday for us was the welcome that we received from the owners with a bottle of wine and chocolates - a lovely welcome to their gorgeous cottage. They were very helpful when we asked for anything and provided a highchair, cot and utensils for my baby daughter. Absolutely amazing!

Owners were extremely pleasant and helpful; left wine, chocolates and sweets for kids. We had great weather but is plenty to do and see round about if the weather isn't so good. Beautiful scenery.

Seclusion and peacefulness. Scotland is a great holiday location, no traffic jams or queues just stunning locations and friendly people. Will certainly revisit.
Mrs McIntosh
November 2010
The view from the veranda was outstanding and the air was crystal clear both day and at night under the stars. We had three beautiful days of sunshine and blue skies with sparkly frost in the mornings and the wonderful autumnal colours all around. The owners were so friendly. We will certainly consider doing the same again but next time for a longer period. The owners left a bottle of wine and chocolates for our arrival which I thought was a really lovely touch as it was a special birthday for me. Altogether a memorable long weekend.
Mr Alexander

The owners are two of the friendliest and most cheerful people you could wish to meet. They keep the property immaculate, with every little detail considered and it was a real home away from home. It has stunning views and is set in a peaceful and relaxing location. We would certainly recommend the property to family and friends and are already considering revisiting sometime in the future.

Have you ever wanted to get off the grid? - then this is for you. a wonderful quiet chalet in the heart of Ross-shire, with outstanding features. Great comfortable and everything I needed. excellent quality fixtures and fittings. Magnificent welcome, and relaxed environment. The Chalet has a great view out to Strathpeffer and the fresh air was great. would go back again in a heartbeat, and could quite happily have stayed for a month. Really well heated, insulated, nice little features like a welcome pack of wine and chocolates, heated mattress and homely features, would stay here over a hotel any day of the week and twice on Sunday. 12 out of 10.
December 2012
I found this little lodge really cosy, well stocked with everything you would need. The owner was extremely helpful and welcoming - there was even a bottle of wine and chocolates waiting when I arrived - a nice touch. The lodge is in a good location and is lovely and peaceful, my only gripe was Strathpeffer itself - it seemed to be shut all the time - shops close at lunchtime when a lot of people want to shop but that didn't really detract from my stay that much as I had the car and travelled about. I would certainly recommend the lodge.
September 2011
Owners were very welcoming - leaving wine for the asdults and sweets for the children. The chalet was exceptionally clean and very comfortable with tremendous views looking down into the village of Strathpeffer. We were very lucky with the weather and made the most of the outside furniture and the balcony. Ideal for touring The Black Isle, we also went across to Ullapool and down to Landmark at Carrbridge.Plenty to see and do in fair weather and Inverness on the doorstep to explore if rainy.

Great holidays in a lovely place (and house). Fantastic location to explore Highlands. Absolutely recomended.
September 2012
Great place for a holiday if you want peace and quiet and central for touring about the highlands. I would recommend it.
January 2011
Our experience at Strathpeffer was wonderful. We wanted to do some exploring and follow the Pictish trail. We did all of that and much more. The early winter in mid November gave us sunshine and sparkling frost every day and was just beautiful. We met the friendly, welcoming Ross family as well as Caruso, the Highland Bull and his lovely family. I work as an artist and now have many sketches and photographs to work with from this beautiful area. It is central for exploring around northern Scotland from Ulapool to Dunrobin Castle and beyond. The Scottish Victorian village of Strathpeffer with it's interesting history is also worth coming back to see again in the season when it's visitor attractions will be open. We will certainly be returning to this peaceful retreat in the Highlands.
