Larchfield Chalet 1 description

Holiday home
This is a custom built timber chalet in an elevated position overlooking the little spa town of Strathpeffer. It provides bright, airy accommodation and is warm and welcoming. There are three spacious and comfortable bedrooms; one twin, accessed by a loft ladder, perfect for children wanting an exciting hideaway, a double on the ground floor and a further single bedroom on the ground floor. The open plan living area has a fitted kitchen, dining and sitting area with doors to a veranda with furniture and a shared gravel area. This is an unusual property in a great location ready to take advantage of the diverse opportunities in this part of Scotland.

The lovely little spa town of Strathpeffer grew up after the discovery of exceptionally pure springs in the 18th Century. The waters were declared the healthiest in Britain in 1819 and the town burgeoned from there. The pavilion has been restored and is now used as a venue for events including concerts, dramas and live theatre. The former railway station was built in the Victorian times and it now serves as home to The Highland Museum of Childhood and craft workshops. Holiday makers can still sample the water in the old pump house, which is also a Tourist Information point. There are lovely walks to explore nearby and Strathpeffer is super base for a holiday as it is close to many attractions and only 20 miles from the thriving city of Inverness.

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 Chalet was very good and the owners went out of their way to help us feel at home. I'd recommend the Chalet and use it again. There were stunning views from the property too.

My parents and I really enjoyed the fact that the chalet was very homely. We felt relaxed, unrushed and able to treat the accommodation as though it was our home.

This was a good base for all the activities which we had planned to do on our holiday. On the whole the property was good but a few niggly points for me, there was not enough space around the table for 6 people only 4, there was no family size freezer, and if you are not cooking or eating out (which the owner commented to me on arrival) why is there a dishwasher . Owners would be better off advertising the property as 4 and not 6.

The owners were very friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. We really appreciated their help and support when the weather took a turn for the worse.
October 2013
Difficult to find, but when we did find it, it was well worth it! The cottage was very well equipped, and had some nice treats waiting for us on arrival , It was clean and warm if the weather had been better we might have enjoyed The balcony a bit more! Spectacular views, welcoming house holder, nothing to Criticize, only praise! An enjoyable 3 days.

The owners were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Our cottage was the larger of two alpine style chalet buildings which are have a hillside location. The cottage was warm and comfortable for four of us and two dogs. Two of us are young fit people who could climb the loft ladder for access to the upstairs bedroom without difficulty. The cottage would be OK for up to five people. It is close to Strathpeffer with easy access to main routes. There are good walks for folks and dogs around Strathpeffer including excellent woodland and hill walks.

This property is well located for discovering the Scottish highlands, with easy access to hills and coast.

An excellent holiday chalet: very comfortable, great location, wonderful views. The only problem - not a big one - is that the directions to the property were unhelpful (unlike the owners who came to meet us and show us the way)
July 2014
This is a well equipped chalet with nice views and very welcoming hosts. It is well located for visiting the Highlands if you don't fancy moving around to a different B&B every few days. Do not even attempt to find it on your own the first time, phone Alan the owner and he is happy to come and guide you from Strathpeffer.
December 2012
I visited the chalet along with my parents, cousin and dog. Views from the chalet are stunning and the chalet itself is immaculate, welcoming and well equipped. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There are so many places to visit from this base. We will certainly be going back.
