A beautiful self-contained guest suite in the heart of the Findhorn Eco-Village. Two large, spacious double bed rooms incorporate mezzanine sleeping areas, one with a dining / living space, the other with an additional bed. The house is surrounded by garden and a small wood, and is walking distance from the beach, the Findhorn Foundation and many local facilities.
With a newly installed kitchenette the space can comfortably accommodate between 2 - 5 people.

The space
The self-contained guest suite is situated within our family home at the far end of a spacious, sunlit hallway. Internal walls and closed doors separate the guest space from our family home.
The guest suite itself comprises two large rooms, a fully equipped kitchenette situated in a wide hallway, and shower/toilet. Each room has a mezzanine sleeping floor with a double bed. Downstairs in one room is set up as a dining/living room, while downstairs in the second room has an additional single bed. Bed configuration can be changed to suit access needs.
The rooms are set up to comfortably accommodate five people and yet can still provide a cozy holiday home for a couple. There is also a sofa bed if necessary, allowing a sixth person.

Guests share the front door and entrance way with our family private dwelling. The entrance is a generously sized space with coat and shoe racks. If social distancing measures require, guests can request exclusive use of the entrance.

There is a single step access into the guest suite and stairs up to the mezzanines. While the double beds are generally situated upstairs, we can re-situate one on the ground floor. Please contact us if you have any accessibility queries.

During the warmer months guests can request use of a 4 metre bell tent, complete with double bed, set up in the back garden, for an additional charge.
