Description

Inshriach is a spacious Edwardian house in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, perfect for family holidays, house parties, location work and special occasions. It's also one of the greenest historic holiday homes in Scotland, heated by biomass and with solar panels for the electricity.Five miles from Aviemore, the house sits at the heart of a rolling estate of 200 acres, bordered by the River Spey (day fishing tickets are £25 on the 3 miles belonging to the estate) and the Cairngorm mountains. Step inside and step back a century into the unpretentious, slightly faded glamour of an Edwardian country home with dark panelling, persian rugs and roll top baths. No need for retro reproduction here; at Inshriach it's the original, antique, fully functioning, real thing. The layout of the rooms is uncannily similar to a Cluedo board. Was it Mr George in the dining room with the candlestick... or perhaps Mrs Black in the conservatory with the snooker cue...or even a speckled

Step inside and step back a century into the unpretentious, slightly faded glamour of an Edwardian country home with dark panelling, persian rugs and roll top baths. No need for retro reproduction here; at Inshriach it's the original, antique, fully functioning, real thing. The layout of the rooms is uncannily similar to a Cluedo board. Was it Mr George in the dining room with the candlestick... or perhaps Mrs Black in the conservatory with the snooker cue...or even a speckled band slithering down the bell-pull...? This is a house with stories to tell and probably secrets to keep, a house that begs to be explored and enjoyed. The bedrooms - of which there are 10 – have gorgeous views. Suitcases are dumped on antique bedspreads and chaises longues. Someone presses the bell, half wondering whether a maid might actually appear to hang up the clothes, but although the bells do ring, there is no response – after all, this is a self catering holiday (unless you book the chef). Unsurprisingly, the house and estate have been used for films and photoshoots.What sets Inshriach apart is the unselfconscious bohemian feel to the place and the reassuring mix of the luxurious and the down-to earth. From casual come and go meals at the large kitchen table, cosy by the Aga, to dressing for dinner and dining by candlelight beneath the gallery and cupola. You are also spoilt for choice with rooms in which to relax – Inshriach has two drawing rooms and a sun room and small library as well, so there is always somewhere to hide away for a quiet moment.The owners of Inshriach, Lucy and Walter, are maybe a little eccentric. The overflow accommodation in the grounds is quirky to say the least: a yurt, hand built by Walter himself, sits on the hillside overlooking the river Spey; the Bothy Project, a modernist cabin designed as an artists' retreat is hidden away in the woods while the piece de resistance has to be the unique Beer Moth, a converted 1950s fire truck furnished with a brass Victorian bed, parquet floor and a wood burning stove. All of these are available to rent separately through Canopy and Stars.Inshriach estate is brilliant for rambling about, exploring, picnicing, skinny dipping and lazing on the lawn sipping tea or cocktails and the Cairngorms National Park is renowned for its outdoor sports, from hiking in the Monadhliath Mountains to white water rafting down the Spey. There are dozens of golf courses withing easy reach, water sports are available nearby on Loch Insh and Loch Morlich, the Cairngorm ski area is only a 20 minute drive away and there are dozens of distilleries to choose from along the Speyside Whisky Trail.Inshriach is also the scene of the annual Insider music festival, an intimate 750 capacity affair now in its 5th year, which has built a reputation as a hot ticket on the Scottish music scene for its stellar line up and ridiculous fancy dress. Full details of this years festival are on the website, www.insiderfestival.com. For something more homely, Woodentom is running green woodworking courses out in the oakwoods at Inshriach throughout the year (www.woodentom.com).You can have a look at Inshriach House's facebook page or the page for the Insider Festival for up to date details of what's going on.

“Warm, wonderful with loads of character”

Reviewed 7 May 2013

We booked Inshriach house for the Easter weekend as we were a group of 13 travelling for the long holiday to visit a few distilleries in the highlands. The experience was out of a storybook. Inshriach is tucked away in the Scottish countryside and proves to be everything the website describes. The house was designed as described in a review - bohemian chic, filled with antiques dating back to the time when the Blacks owned the place, bedrooms with names on each door, a few with very high four poster beds that required large stairs to climb in, a wonderful living room with a roaring fireplace and a kitchen that lends itself to many an evening with a glass of wine and stories. Perfect for a large group, even better if you are celebrating an event. We went at the start of spring, I can only imagine how wonderful this place would be in the summer. Also - would recommend Allan at One Pot Borrowed to deliver his wonderful service for atleast one night - excellent cooking at your own dining table at Inshriach!

“Blissful, beautiful and magical retreat”

Reviewed 7 May 2013

I have stayed at Inshriach House several times with groups of friends and anticipate continuing to come back for many years. This is truly one of the most magical and quirky places I have ever stayed and it has a heart and soul that you just won't find in a hotel. The owners Walter and Lucy offer outstanding hospitality and nothing is too much to ensure that you are completely comfortable and looked after. The scenery, whatever the season, is breathtaking and you can walk for hours in each direction. The house is comfortable with cosy beds, large drawing rooms with roaring fires, well equipped kitchen and huge dining table in the hall. Every room has it's own character and original features, art and artefacts. This is really a very special place to stay.

Why thank you very much. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
