“The return to Old Duffus - with small child!”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I have stayed at Old Duffus before but this was the first time with our toddler. What a fabulous place to stay with a small child! The owner clearly has children herself, given the baby/toddler items available for guests' use in the house. Things like the highchair, changing mat, the slide in the back garden and a selection of books and toys just made our stay a whole lot easier and had our child been younger or a little older, the baby bath seat and potty would have been handy too.

Aside from the child-related 'stuff', the kitchen was definitely the best equipped of any we stayed in during our trip (which took in 3 self-catering properties) and the large kitchen table was perfect for mealtimes with the whole family. The property itself was just as welcoming and comfortable as the last time I stayed and is large enough to accommodate all its guests without tripping over each other.

This time we brought bikes and enjoyed a couple of lovely bike rides, exploring the local area. We also visited the beaches at Lossiemouth and Findhorn, which are different but both superb.

I have no doubt that we will be back!

Hi, thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review.

I am so pleased you found all the child related items useful. Having spent time ourselves in self catering properties with our own family, we have tried to put in useful items that guests might not have been able to fit in the car!

This area is ideal for biking - from family friendly routes to more challenging mountain bike trials - all are within easy reach of the property. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Old Duffus again in the future.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

After a long journey up having stopped at several places on our way up it was such a welcome when we got to our lovely cosy farmhouse. The welcome basket was so useful. The farmhouse has the most fantastic view of Duffus Castle! The house has everything you would need very well equipped we didn't use the fires as it was warm enough great family sized kitchen all in all 10/10. We hope to be back soon

“Quiet, Spacious, Quirky”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Great place to stay, with fantastic outlook to Duffus Castle. Rooms were spacious (some quite quirky, biggest shower room I've ever seen) and comfortable. The house is a little dated inside but that's a minor thing and certainly didn't spoil our enjoyment of the place. Hope to return next summer.

Hi, many thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Old Duffus Farmhouse does indeed have fantastic views over to Duffus Castle.

I'm really sorry you felt the house was a little dated. Several of the rooms had in fact been freshly painted and had new carpets and new, made to measure lined curtains fitted earlier this year. We have an ongoing programme of improvements for all our properties. We do appreciate your feedback, and hopefully, if you come again, you'll be able to see further improvements in the property.
