“Superb location - highly recommended”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a really enjoyable weekend break at the Old Duffus Farmhouse. The accommodation was excellent and the boys just loved visiting/playing at the castle each day - welcome basket was greatly appreciated also. There's loads to do in the area and weather was kind also which was a bonus.

Hi, thanks for taking the time to write us a review. I am really pleased you all had such a lovely break at Old Duffus. It is indeed a great property for families. Children (as well as adults alike!) always enjoy exploring the ruins of Duffus Castle immediately in front of the farmhouse.

“Cozy, spacious and a great location.”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were staying in the Old Duffus Farmhouse with a party of six - all pretty tall men. The description on the website turned out to be absolutely accurate, which is a rarity these days. The house is cozy and spacious at the same time. It has the charm of a real old farm building - we all loved to start our day in the big kitchen with a common breakfast and to spend our evenings in the living room playing cards. The four bedrooms were equipped with everything we needed, even with heating blankets (which we didn't need).

The view of Duffus Castle is amazing and couldn't take my eyes of it. We also appreciated the remoteness - because everything we needed was quite close by.

Even though we never got to meet our landlady the communication was very courteous and friendly. A welcome package awaited us on arrival.

I hope to be back one day to enjoy more days in this wonderful place.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of your stay in Old Duffus Farmhouse. I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay. The large farmhouse kitchen is indeed perfect for big meals with friends or family and the sitting room an ideal place to relax with its castle view.

I am also really sorry that work commitments did not allow for me to pop along and personally welcome you. However, I would be delighted to welcome you back to Old Duffus again in the future.
