Holiday Rental House
Gowanbank was built in 1900 for the Duke of Gordon's Factor. It is situated in Queen Street one of the premier locations in Huntly. It is one of the grandest houses in Huntly with 2 large drawing rooms, a separate dining room, large dining kitchen, separate utility room, downstairs cloak room and a separate shower room with large walk in shower. Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and shower over. Outside there is a large fully enclosed garden. Commensurate with its status, Gowanbank retains all of its original Victorian fire places, picture rails, ornate cornice detailing and Arts and Crafts stained glass windows. The doors are also original and even the original butler's hatch remains. The house is a 5 minute walk from the shops and a 5 minute walk from the train stati...Gowanbank was built in 1900 for the Duke of Gordon's Factor.

Gowanbank is a beautiful house with large rooms and plenty of original features. It is a shame, therefore, that it has not been properly maintained for some years. On the surface everything is fine - clean and tidy, the heating works well there is plenty...More

I am afraid that the only lack of care in the house was the extreme lack of care that this group took of our house. Our previous guests who left 2 days before these guests left us a 5 star review and they left our...More
