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.
We loved the lodge and the view. The lodge was very clean and tidy. It was great to relax here for a few days and in the hot tub although it was very windy with no privacy/weather shelter around some of the hot tub.
The area was prefect as it was not too far away from activities, sight seeing, shopping, etc.
We would recommend to others and we also would like to come back again sometime.
Burgie House exceeded our and our families' expectations in every dimension. We rented the house for one week for our wedding and had everyone stay with us during that time -- and we all can't wait to go back. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful, peaceful, and grand escape from the world.
Price: For the price per night of one kinda-fancy hotel room in San Francisco, Burgie House gets you enough space to very comfortably house two dozen people. It's an incredibly deal.
Setting and Accessibility: ~ 50 Minute drive from downtown Inverness, or a bit longer by train to Forres ...more
