Firstly many apologies for a very late review but it appears my original review went awol!
Communication with Julie was great and the whole booking process was straight forward. Dunmore House was a lovely spacious property with all the mod cons you could wish for. All the rooms were spacious with the sunroom a great spot to enjoy the fabulous views from. The master bedroom was enormous with a very spacious en-suite.
The property was dog friendly and was surrounded by lovely countryside suitable for dog walking. Beauly was a great place to explore from - we even went up to John O' Groats for the day.
The only possible negative would be if you wanted to walk into Beauly as it would be quite an uphill walk back to the property! The positives of this property however far outweighed that potential minor issue.
Our visit was for only 4 days but would certainly like to revisit again sometime in the future.
This is our 10th year at Dunmore, started in the caravans now in the cottage.
We found it quite by accident and have fallen in love with this whole place.
The views are spectacular. The birds that visit the garden, feeding the horse and the chickens and watching the lambs jumping and playing are all so relaxing and enjoyable. My morning coffee back home just isn’t the same.
The buzzards and red kites visit daily, soaring overhead on the thermals, tempting you to take photo after photo. The woods are grea5 for exploring and walking through and the village has everything you could ask for locally. Julie, Martin, fiona and Neil are great hosts and nothing is too much bother. They always have time for a chat and some craic. The house and vans are very well equipped and placed so you all have the upmost privacy at all times. The views inside and out are breathtaking, endless hours can be spent literally watching the world go by!
There’s paintball, laser tag, archery and axe throwing at wildwoodz, gokarting and golfing in inverness at the fairways, flume fun at the inverness swimming pool and enough beaches that you can visit a different one every day of the week.
Ullapool, Dornoch, wick and Skye are all great day trips and shopping and eating in Inverness is a great day out too.
Looking forward to booking again next year .
Not looking forward to my morning coffee in our garden back home now, as the view just isn’t the same.
Till next year,
We have stayed at Dunmore house on 5 occasions, 4 over Christmas and once in the summer. Our family, including our 3 border terriers love this super peaceful holiday home. We are booked again for this Christmas. The house is in an absolutely stunning location, with views over the firth giving the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets, with red kites flying overhead. It is very well equipped, with everything you could possibly need and Julie, Martin and the girls are super friendly and accommodating. The house sits in a quiet road which has forest walks and loch walks for either a short stroll or long hikes, ideal for runners, bikers and walkers alike. Beauly town, a short drive down the hill offers independent retailers, including an exquisite deli, gift shops, a supermarket and a great butchers. There are some beautiful beaches about an hours drive away, our favourites are Dornoch and Nairn. If you are looking for a holiday to escape from it all but still want your home comforts, I would recommend a stay at Dunmore House.
Know where in the description or photos does it say there is a caravan site situated right next to Dunmore House.
We actually had to have side bedroom curtains closed all the time as caravan people could look right into your bedroom..
We spent a week at Dunmore House with family. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we were made very welcome by Julie.
The house was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and the views were spectacular.
