The space

Quiet residential street on the edge of our community woodlands - just 1 mile from the High Street. This is a peaceful quiet location ideal for a couples retreat or as a centre to explore wonderful Forres. Just 15 minutes to Findhorn beach. Set in a beautiful garden, the private eco sanctuary and hot tub is also available for hire with prior notice.

Guest access

My home is yours and I want you to be comfortable. There is off Street parking on private driveway. On arrival, I will give you your own front door key and there is also a lock on your room.

Interaction with guests

I have lived in this lovely house in beautiful Forres for over 30 years. As an ex community councillor, I have lots of local knowledge to help you find your way around town and can make good recommendations for (almost) anything you may require.

I am also happy to offer my time as a tour guide or walking guide (by arrangement)

I can also usually offer a local taxi service at just 50p per mile including lifts from the Airport or Train Station. Just ask. I am here to help you.

Other things to note

The Hot Tub and Sanctuary (with wood stove) is available for guests (with 3 days notice). For hygiene purposes, I always clean and refill with fresh water and reheat. To cover the cost of this I charge £50 for first use (free thereafter) . It's a wonderful, unique and romantic experience you wont forget !

Stewart's home is a peaceful oasis; a great escape from the modern lifestyle. Stewart has been very welcoming, and has driven me places I needed to go. The bed is very comfortable with high quality linens. The garden is exquisite. There are owls that hoot outside for hours!!!!!!! :) :) :) :) :)

The first thing you notice about Stewart's place is the warmth and friendliness of his welcome. The next thing is the clean, cosy and comfortable interior, with interesting original art works and lots of books. The big surprise is the beautiful garden (complete with a delightful "hobbit house") - obviously a labour of love. Stewart is a generous host with an impressive arrange of teas and a bowl of fruit in the room along with other little healthy snacks. The last thing you notice is how good you feel after the tranquil atmosphere has just drained any stress away and how sorry you are to leave.

We love Stewart! His home was a delight to stay in and the Hobbit House a great place for meditation. Stewart went above and beyond making our stay comfortable. We appreciated all the added touches with fresh fruit, chocolate and more.

Stewart's sanctuary is just that, every bit as magical & rejuvenating as you could wish for, the guest room & ensuite were perfect & had a lovely feel. The Druid / Hobbit house is a very special place, the garden is enchanting, there are free loan bikes, lovely walks through forrest pathways, nice safe neighbourhood & friendly locals. The museum in town is small but interesting & I ate several times at Chimes Cafe, great coffee too. Loved the little gift/crystal store run by Laura. Findhorn is not far & if you are into Neolithic sites & earth energy have Stewart tell you about Clava Cairns, I had nearly 3 weeks at the sanctuary & went to Orkney for the Neolithic sites also awesome (great hosts there too). Stewart is very accommodating as guide & taxi driver. Treat yourself to a great holiday & make a friend for life.

Stewart is an affable and informative host.He shares his home with generosity Our en-suite room was an haven in itself.Being able to use the kitchen made Stewart's place feel like a home from home.He has a wonderful garden to enjoy in addition to the hot-tub and unique garden house,(both well worth utilising during your stay.). Forres and its environs is a beautiful part of the country and Stewart is a perfect ambassador to represent it.

Stewart was a 5-star host from pre-check-in to drop-off at the airport! Communication, directions, local info, guided tours, cooking and private taxi service - all courtesy of the amenable, indefatigable, knowledgable and welcoming Stewart! It was a pleasure to be welcomed into his home and be looked after by him. The room had all mod cons and more, the house was large, clean, modern and spacious and the garden area simply amazing. Couldn't recommend more highly!

I have been a guest with AirB&B a few times. I was so impressed by the friendliness of my hosts that I recently decided to become one myself. I am a semi retired social entrepreneur and have spent the last 20 years travelling around the UK (and as far as Japan) promoting LETS systems - (Interest free community currency). Peer to peer is the future as it cuts out the middle men. Why pay a fortune to an impersonal corporately owned hotel when we can share what we have and help each other directly. I love playing guitar, nature and meeting people from all walks of life and backgrounds and I look forward to meeting you.
