Large 5-bedroom Scottish Highland farmhouse sleeping up to 10
Summer holiday with extended famiky
Had a lovely week at a Nuide House in July 2019. There was plenty of room for our extended family of 5 adults and 4 children. Easy access to everything the Cairngorms have to offer. Very traditional property in a rural setting set out over 3 floors. Very relaxing.
Absolutely lovely, such a nice home!
- very fine stay in the very nice location
- 3 remarks :
- - - once the WiFi came on its performance was very poor - not workable
- - - a cooker hood above the cooker in the citchen would be an advantage as now the fire alarm was activated regularly
- - - more pans and pots would great as it the actual set will not be sufficient when cooking for 10 people
Relaxing & Peaceful
Nuide House is a lovely property in a peaceful location. There were no real issues with anything other than the kitchen was probably not equipped for a party of 10. There are plenty of plates/dishes but not enough mugs (a lot of them had chips in!) There was not enough pans to cook for 10 either!
Other than that it was a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable stay.
Hi Fiona, thanks for taking the time to leave a review and we're glad you had a good time at Nuide Farmhouse but also take on your comments about the lack of enough kitchen utensils. Kind Regards Harry
Superb farmhouse for families
Nuide is a huge and characterful place. Very well equipped for guests. Outstanding mountain views with easy access to Aviemore area. I can't recommend highly enough.
Large old farmhouse, well located for trips to Loch Ness, Fort William and the surrounding area.
House is large and rambling with lots of character.
Lounge has lots of sofas to sink into, an open fireplace and wifi.
The kitchen has had some superficial updating done but is in desperate need of a new range (the current one is falling to pieces and has an oven which takes an hour to heat up) and some curating of contents (too much in the drawers etc. including broken appliances) on the plus side there is a Tassimo coffee machine and milk frother!
Bedrooms are equipped with comfortable beds and nice bedding and some even have fine original art on the walls depicting highland scenes (not sure why this isn't downstairs in the common areas instead of prints from a France etc.)
Bathrooms could all do with modernizing but they are clean and with seemingly endless hot water.
The washing machine is newer and works well and with good weather we never needed to use the dryer function.
This is a farmhouse on a working farm and could really do with a few cats on patrol, although this is obviously tricky for a rental property!
That being said, the house was as expected, the photos represent it well and we had a great stay there!
sorry it's taken 2 years but the owner just spotted when looking for something and asked me to respond. They did take your review seriously and the range has been replaced and the cats dealt with. It seems overall you enjoyed your stay at Nuide so hopefully we might welcome you back soon.
Nuide House is situated within the beautiful Cairngorm National Park. Throughout the year these hills, whether covered in snow or heather provide a stunning landscape for walkers and cyclists. Water sport enthusiasts can also fall in love with the area with both Loch Insh and Loch Morlich ideal and also offering equipment to hire. Other nearby activities include playing golf on the Newtonmore course or horse riding, which can also be enjoyed locally within the town. Fishing is available on the River Spey and can be arrange by the estate within which the house is located.
If you are looking to experience some of the local history and culture, Newtonmore has plenty to offer its visitors, including the Highland Folk Museum and the Clan Macpherson museum, which looks back at the history of the Jacobites.
There are several places to eat nearby, including some excellent restaurants, a favourite for sight-seers is The Boathouse at Loch Insh. Newtonmore also has a few good shops and its own garage.
Local family friendly attractions within easy reach of the farmhouse including the Cairngorm Sleddog Centre, the Highland Wildlife Park, the Newtonmore Wildcat Trail and Cawdor Castle. For the grown ups there are several nearby whisky distilleries!
