From the owner

The Lodge is a traditional stone Victorian lodge house nestled at the gates to Duffus House on Duffus Estate. Perfect for couples or small families, this cosy, single story property is the ideal hideaway to escape from it all. This characterful gate lodge boasts a beautiful wood burning stove - ideal for cosy evenings in, original floor boards and flagstones. There is a private garden with BBQ, fire bowl and garden furniture - perfect for those long, light summer evenings we are so lucky to have in Moray.

The Lodge is surrounded by fields and woodland which makes it extremely tranquil. Duffus Estate has a network of paths, many of which can be accessed directly from the Lodge. Whilst you are out you may be lucky enough to spot some of our resident red squirrels, roe deer or even some of our abundant birdlife. The woods are also home to a host of wild flowers. Spring time is especially impressive due to the grand displays of snowdrops followed by daffodils and primroses. A short walk brings you to the village of Duffus which has a pub, shop, post office and play park. Close by are the glorious beaches of the Moray Firth, golf courses, cliff top walks, the Speyside whisky trail - you really can be as energetic or relaxed as you wish.

Interaction with guest

We live locally and try to pop in if we see your car at the property to say 'hello'. We do both work full time, have a young family and run the Estate, so sometimes we might not make it round - please don't be offended! We are however, very happy to help, so if you need any information or have any questions about the house please do get in touch by phone or email and we will do our best to help.
