“Serene, relaxing and cosy home away from home.”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just returned from another wonderful week spent in Kestrel cabin. It is our third visit to Kestrel and our sixth to Springburn. Shelia has literally thought of everything you will need whilst not at home; right down to the tea, coffee and refreshments 'welcome' tray upon arrival. The surroundings are beautiful and calming. On our first two visits we saw deer through the bathroom and kitchen windows every morning and this visit we had a baby Buzzard perched feet away on our garden fence. If you are looking for peace and quiet and a fantastic home base to explore the wonderful Moray coast and surrounding areas I very highly recommend this cabin (Buzzard and Osprey cabins too). You will not be disappointed!!

Together with my husband and 2 friends, we have stayed at "Kestrel" several times. Sheila always leaves a welcome tray of tea and cake, flowers on the table, plus whisky minatures. Everything is so welcoming and like a home from home, only this one has virtually no traffic noise,no neighbours, just peace and quiet. We have already provisionally booked for next year.

My wife and I plus our 2 sons went to this cabin in July , We loved the peace and quiet and the dog friendly garden for our 6 month old sheltie pup. The owners were so friendly and helpful even after a few mishaps. I would encourage anybody who want a relaxing holiday to come here but also if need be have Elgin only a few miles away for things to do. I will return to this property sometime soon.
