large, classically beautiful country side set amidst 1500 acres, Burgie House is a welcoming and family friendly holiday house that is perfect for a large group. This much loved, large family house is traditional and welcoming with plenty of public space, including a wonderful basement billiard room and a fantastic ceilidh room â€“ a great â€œplay areaâ€ for young and old â€“ with plenty of break away space for everyone. This house is traditional and beautiful so do not expect modern furniture and fabrics but do expect warmth, antiques, charm and character. Spacious traditional bedrooms all have lovely views across the paddocks or majestic trees at the rear.
Outside, there are beautiful grounds complete with Arboretum and lochans, paddocks, natural woodlands and walking/cycling tracks as well as large lawns, BBQ areas. You can bring your own horse should you wish. Burgie can offer you field sports on the estate, catering for all or some of your meals if you prefer not to self cater and some housekeeping should you wish.
The area offers a multitude of activities for all ages with excellent beaches along the coastline, championship golf courses on the doorstep, distilleries, historic castles such as Brodie and Cawdor and battlefields such as Culloden Moor, all within easy reach. Inverness airport is less than 30 minutes drive away and the city offers every facility you would expect. Nearby Forres is an attractive market town with supermarkets, hotels and pubs. It is an excellent area for a great holiday and with a marvelous house like Burgie to return to at the end of the day, you will have a truly memorable holiday.
The lodge was spotlessly clean, the people we had communication with were very helpful and we had a great stay. The lodge was really quiet set in the trees with amazing views, which far exceed the photos. It was so lovely to sit in the hot-tub watching the sun go down over the coast. It was just the break we needed and we hope to come back next year.
Absolutely loved our stay in the lodge. The surroundings and views are stunning, the lodge is spacious, clean and comfortable. Beds are comfortable. Great shower. We will definitely return!
A few areas I think would improve the stay-
1 - In the main bedroom, could be done with a bigger bed, a double bed is not big enough for a good nights sleep, also it only had 2 pillows, I like 4.
2 - The tv in living room didn’t work, just wouldn’t switch on. A DVD player and some DVDs would be good.
3 - We took games with us, but a selection of games would be a nice touch.
4 - The hot tub is...more
