Overview

Keith Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable 3-bedroom house in Keith with quaint cottage garden, decking & hens

NOTE: The prices listed are indicative only and we often have discounts available so please get in touch for a quote by clicking 'Enquire Now'.

Keith is 80 kilometers (just over an hour by car or train) from Aberdeen and Inverness, and is ideally situated for exploring whisky distilleries, castles, golf courses, walking routes and fishing rivers. This is a three-bedroom (two double, one single) end-terrace house in a quiet area of Fife-Keith with a quaint cottage garden (with free-range hens) and a large area of decking at the rear. The house has recently been renovated and has character features, exposed granite walls, a wood-burning stove, a well-equipped kitchen with a 90-cm oven and 5-burner hob, a modern bathroom with shower and underfloor heating, and comfortable king-size beds. It's a 4-minute walk to the railway station and 2 minutes to the bus stop. The cost of central heating is included, and there is a starter pack of solid fuel for the stove.

The lounge has exposed granite walls, an oak floor with a woollen rug, a log-burning stove, a comfortable brown leather sofa and red leather chairs and footstool. There is an extending oak table and 8 dining chairs. There is a large wall-hung TV, Blue Ray DVD player, and free wifi internet access.

The kitchen is well-equipped with an S/s 90-cm range cooker, extractor fan, integrated fridge and dishwasher. There is a large kitchen island unit with good storage and worktops. There's a good stock of crockery, glasses, cutlery and kitchen appliances, including a turbo-cook/grill microwave oven and coffee-maker.

The porch/utility room has a washing machine and tumble dryer, a large fridge-freezer, a shoe rack and coat hooks. The door opens out on to the decking area, which has a table and 6 chairs with cushions, a patio heater, and a large canopy.

The quiet garden has cottage-style planting and has a shed, henhouse (and hens!) and a chimenea. There is offroad and onstreet parking.

The upper floor of the house has three bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom at the front of the property has a king-size antique bed with marble-topped bedside tables, a dual-control electric blanket, chest of drawers with large mirror on top, 2 spacious cupboards, a TV with freeview, and a hairdryer.

The second double bedroom faces the back of the house and is a quaint modern room with a king-size bed, wardrobe and a comfortable chair.

The third bedroom has a single bed, desk and chair and bookcase.

The entrance hall has a large mirror and spacious understair cupboard.

The front garden in season has lots of herbs and salad crops, which guests are invited to use.

An initial supply of coal, wood and peat is supplied, and further supplies of wood and peat at £5 a sack can be bought nearby at Teko Tubs on Station Road.

LOCAL AREA:

Keith is a small town on the banks of the River Isla between Aberdeen and Inverness at the heart of Scotland’s whisky trail and is a great base to explore the riches of north-east Scotland.

Speyside is famed for its malt whisky: the Chivas Regal distillery is only a 1-minute walk from Milton Cottage, and the Keith and Dufftown Railway links Keith with Dufftown, the malt whisky capital of the world, home to world-famous distilleries including Glenfiddich and The Balvenie. It is said that whereas Rome was built on seven hills, Dufftown stands on seven stills. The Speyside Cooperage at Craigellachie gives another slant on the whisky industry.

Keith is well placed for long-distance walking routes, including the Speyside Way (which goes from Aviemore to Spey Bay) and the Isla Way, which passes through Keith itself.

Keith is only 9 miles from the coast, which has long sandy beaches, rocky coves, towering cliffs and picturesque villages.

Local shops include the Keith Kilt and Textiles Centre and the Mither Tongue Shop (which celebrates the Scots language).

Keith hosts a Traditional Music Festival each May and the Keith Country Show is a highlight of August.

Nearby Fochabers is home to Baxter’s Foods and Huntly to Dean’s shortbread, and there are many places to eat and drink in the vicinity; for example, the Boogie Woogie Shop and Bistro, The Steading, the Royal Hotel, Ugie House Hotel and La Faisanderie French restaurant.

Historical buildings include Milton Tower, Keith’s oldest building, which was the birthplace of St John Ogilvie (Scotland’s only post-Reformation saint), and nearby is the Secret Kirk: St Ninian's at Tynet, Scotland's oldest post-Reformation Catholic church.

' A real gem '

  • 5 of 5

My teenage children and I have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday....staying in Milton Cottage, Keith. On arrival we were greeted warmly by Margaret( the owner) and given a conducted tour of the property. Margaret also provided lots of additional information about the area, things to do,events taking place and places to eat. Tea, coffee, biscuits and wine were provided as were logs and peat for the stove. The listing is accurate but could never do the cottage justice. We fell in love with the cottage immediately. It is cosy yet spacious and light, tastefully and comfortably furnished, presented immaculately and very well equipped. We have many years experience of ' cottage holidays' and this is certainly the best cottage we have stayed in for comfort, cleanliness,facilities and location. We know the area well but had not realised how convenient Keith was for accessing the surrounding area. The cottage is in a quiet location with good parking. The outdoor area is a delight...colourful front garden, large grassed area to the side and raised decking area with patio furniture at the rear. We were invited to use any of the garden produce and also the eggs laid by the hens. My children loved collecting the eggs each morning! Eating al fresco was a delight especially when accompanied by the charming hens...very friendly and relaxing to watch! I would recommend this property to friends and family and intend to stay there again as soon as possible.

There are many castles to visit in the area....recommend Brodie, Crathes and Craigevar. Favourite towns...Aberlour, Dufftown, Cullen. Favourite places to eat...BoogieWoogie, Touched by Scotland, Tea in the Park GlenLivet, Johnsons Woollen Mills Elgin. Worth a visit...Pluscarden Abbey, Knockando Mill, Cabrach, Deeside, Telford Bridge at Craigallachie, Spey Bay Dolphin centre, seals at Port Gordon. A real gem.
