Cedar Cottage, Newtyle Wood, Rafford, Forres, Sleeps 4

Pets Welcome

Cedar Cottage is located in a fantastic woodland setting just four miles from the small town of Forres in Morayshire. The traditional forestry cottage although renovated retains much of its original charm and features. This cottage is ideal for those guests looking for a peaceful location with forestry walks and trails on your doorstep. Although it is equally suited to those that would like to have a base to explore either the Morayshire coastline or Speyside.

The accommodation at the cottage is all on the one level and consists of a sitting room with a traditional open fire, a spacious kitchen with a dining table, a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, and a bathroom with a bath with shower. Outside the enclosed garden is quite a sun trap and is fully enclosed making it ideal for the pet owner, and garden furniture and a barbecue are available. The cottage is furnished throughout in a traditional style and the owner has equipped it to a good standard.

Forres is a beautiful town which has a good range of facilities including parks and gardens, a number of cafes, restaurants and a couple of supermarkets. The surrounding area offers much for the visitor including various distilleries such as Dallas Dhu which is located just a few miles away, the Culbin Sands and Forest, which is ideal for mountain bikers and walkers and is home to a RSPB reserve. The picturesque coastal villages of Findhorn and Burghead are just a short drive away and the Moray coast an ideal place to spot the dolphins that the area is well known for.

For the more adventurous walker The Moray Coastal Trail is a 50 mile waymarked trail that runs between Forres and Cullen, en-route you'll have cliff top views and pass sheltered coves and beaches, and a chance to spot the wide variety of local birdlife. 

Further afield the small town of Nairn which is often referred to as the "Brighton of Scotland" has a fabulous sandy beach and a seafront promenade. The annual Highland Games with its pipe bands and athletics takes place in August each year and is always popular with visitors. Not far from here you will find Cawdor Castle with its gardens, the castle has links with Shakespeare's Macbeth and is open to the public to view, please note that this is seasonal. Brodie Castle is also in the vicinity and makes an ideal choice for a day out.

The City of Inverness, Capital of the Highlands is located just 30 miles away and offers all the usual attractions including a museum, art gallery and Culloden Battlefield which is located on the outskirts. Further afield Loch Ness is easily accessible and boat trips are available from the City along the Caledonian Canal to Loch Ness with Jacobite.

It's a beautiful Cottage, fully equipped kitchen, fireplace, garden with BBQ and storage shed. In the Forest with with trails right next to the Cottage, our Dog was in heaven. The distillery is right on the way to the closest shops are in Forres 10 minutes by Car (Tesco, gas station etc ). About 15 minutes ride to Findhorn to the beach, there are sail boats, kayaks available for rent. Few restaurants with amazing Seafood!!! Our family bought the fishing license and had fun catching Crabs from the pier. Fort George is about 20 minutes by car and Inverness 35 minutes drive. I was very relaxing time at Cedar Cottage. We recommend to those guests that would like to spend some genuine time with their Family. Thank you, Greg
