Willowbarn self catering is built within the owners land and is beautifully finished to a high specification with consideration given to environmentally friendly aspects.

It has a generously proportioned open living space with a beautiful contemporary kitchen and dining area, lending itself to luxury family living or large group get-aways.

There are two large bedrooms with zip and link super king size beds, which allows flexibility with groups staying in Willowbarn self catering.

Very peaceful location, close to Forres. Great beaches & other walks close by, excellent cycling opportunities on or off-road. Willow Barn is a first floor apartment above garages, very spacious and airy, decorated & furnished to a very high standard. Pet friendly. One of the best holiday rentals we have ever used!

Just left Willowbarn after a relaxing stay visiting the area. The barn is well-equipped with plenty of space for a family of four. Fiona and Carlo were welcoming and we appreciated little touches like choccies for the kids, a well stocked nespresso machine and wine for the first night. We took advantage of the bikes being available and the kids...

Having stayed at many types of accommodation for work and holidays over many years I have never come across more considerate or flexible hosts than Carlo and Fiona. The Willowbarn was well appointed and very comfortable. Our teenage daughter loved her bedroom and separate bathroom and is looking forward to staying again as are my wife and I. If I...

About the neighbourhood
The self catering accommodation is set in an idyllic private 12 acre garden, which has two beautiful lochs that are stocked with rainbow trout. The surrounding area is primarily woodland and countryside, a few miles from the glorious beaches of the Moray Firth, which is renowned for its colony of seals and dolphins. We can provide our guests with the free usage of the bikes at Willowbarn, please look at photos to see the mountain, road, touring stock that we have available. We also welcome guests with well behaved pets who can enjoy the vast garden area although we do not like them to enjoy the bedroom areas of Willowbarn! The surrounding areas of Forres, Findhorn and Culbin are all accessible by bike and we are even connected approx 500metres away to Forres by the beautiful Dava Way or... more
