“Cozy and quiet”
Reviewed 18 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

I found the Duffus Farmhouse by chance and could not be more lucky. My friends and I spent five beautiful days in this large, comfortable and cozy cottage. We arrived late on the first night but the owners had arranged for the heating to be on and a very nice welcome basket for breakfast. Caroline is extremely kind and helpful and will really contribute to make your stay a memorable one. The house has four large bedrooms, two huge bathrooms, a living room (DVD’s, sat TV, games are provided) and a large kitchen with family table that could easily sit 12 people. It is well equipped with kitchen appliances, washer, drier, and many more amenities, last, but by no means least free wifi. There are two nice fireplaces and initial complimentary supply of logs is provided, but we did not use them.
The house is located right underneath the ruins of the Duffus Castle (which can be seen from many rooms) in the middle of the Moray countryside making it a fascinating and somewhat intriguing place to be. I wish we could have taken advantage of the beautiful outdoors (barbecue is provided) a bit more, but the weather did not allow it. All in all a wonderful experience, I hope I will repeat soon.
