“Great family accommodation in an ideal location.”
The house was spacious, comfortable and well equipped with a large enclosed garden - excellent for children. The children also appreciated the playroom with a good selection of toys and games. The location is excellent, so close to Duffus Castle and within easy reach of a number of beaches. There is lots to do / see in the area and the information provided in the folder was extremely useful. All in all, the house provided a great base for our family and we had a lovely time, enjoying a variety of sightseeing and activities. When we had one slight problem, it was dealt with immediately. Definitely worth four stars, edging towards five.

“Fabulous house perfect setting”
Loved the house perfect for a family get together the rooms are so cosy and kitchen is perfect for all the family to enjoy. Loved the amazing big bathroom could have stayed in there all day. The setting is amazing to wake up in the morning and see Duffus Castle and hear the many birds chirping away was so relaxing. The farmhouse is well equipped with all the essentials could not ask for more. Will definetly be planning a return visit.
Owner's reply: Hello, I am so pleased you all really enjoyed your stay. The property does indeed benefit from a spectacular and very special view of Duffus Castle. We would be delighted to welcome you back again in the future.
“Perfect family getaway”
We had a great time in the cottage which provided us with all we could need. Clean and comfortable house with plenty of facilities for adults and kids. Perfect location with easy access to main routes and a beautiful castle ruins just out the back garden. Will definitely stay again!!

Old Duffus Farmhouse is indeed a very special property with the ruins of Duffus Castle just outside! We will be delighted to welcome you all back again in the future.
“Excellent property, excellent location”
We live in Australia but originated from this area and took the extended family to see where their roots lay. The farmhouse was brilliant, loved the big country kitchen. Everything that we could wish for was provided. The welcome hamper was much appreciated.
Owner's reply: Hi, thanks so much for writing us a review. Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you but I am really pleased you had an enjoyable stay.
“Brillant holiday at Old Duffus Farmhouse”
We loved Old Duffus Farmhouse. Its location is superb, where else can you have breakfast (lucky for us the weather was good) sitting out in the front of the house in the sun facing a Scheduled Ancient Monument 'Duffus Castle'. The house itself was brilliantly suited to our needs, a large well stocked farmhouse kitchen with central table to sit at meals and chat long into the night. A spacious sitting room for TV watching, chat and games with a cosy wood burning stove. Well appointed bedrooms, and two good sized bathrooms. We did not know the area very well, but the owners Caroline and Ed have an information sheet on personal favourites of things to see, do and places to eat which was brilliant and well used by us. The Farmhouse also has guide books etc to explore Moray which is rich is heritage and we especially enjoyed Fort George and Spynie Palace. We spent a day in Elgin and thoroughly enjoyed the museum and the Cathedral. A visit to Johnstons Mill and afternoon tea there got a gold star for the best day of the holiday from my sister! Finally a note about the beautiful coast. We spent an afternoon at Burghead, which is lovely, with an interesting Pictish visitor centre, great harbour, and of course the Old Bothy coffee shop and restaurant, great food, service and ambiance. For the teenager in our party the Wifi in Old Duffus Farmhouse was a must and we had a great night out bowling in Elgin. Finally, for me the icing on the cake was spotting the dolphins when we were at Fort George, indeed a visit to Fort George was an ambition of mine for many years and it did not disappoint. We would love to come back again to Moray and stay again at Old Duffus Farmhouse as there is still loads to do in the area.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I am so pleased you all had such an enjoyable stay at Old Duffus Farmhouse and that you also had chance to explore the beautiful surrounding area. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
“Very helpful owners, ideal location”
Travelled with family aged 4months-94years and property suited all of us. Perfect location for attending a local wedding and exploring the coast. In my sleep deprived state I left a few items behind and the owners couldn't have done more to return these to me. Very happy with our stay.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the time to write us a review. I am so pleased your whole family enjoyed their stay with us here in Moray. The house is indeed well suited for a combination of ages. It was certainly no problem at all returning your items.
“Really comfortable, well equipped house in great location”
Would recommend a stay in this lovely farmhouse. Comfortable and well equipped in an great location with lovely views of a ruined castle. Loads to do in surrounding area for people of all ages. Great choice for a relaxing break
“Charming, characterful and child friendly!”
I stayed at the Duffus farmhouse recently with a group of friends and we had a lovely time. The house is big, well decorated and very well equiped. We arrived at night and it took my breath away opening the bedroom curtains the next morning to see the ruins of Duffus Castle practically in the back garden of the farmhouse. The little touches like the welcome basket with eggs from the estate small holding, the log burner in the living room and the equipment for babies and toddlers all make a huge difference to an easy, relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
“A wonderful week in a lovely traditional house with superb views!”
We all had a brilliant week at Old Duffus. There were seven in our party aged from 14 to 75 and each and everyone of us enjoyed our stay. The house was very spacious and cosy with everything you needed and more. Everybody slept well due to the beds being so comfortable. The surrounding area was beautiful with a fantastic castle for a view. Not only this, but the location of the cottage near RAF Lossiemouth made for some exciting dashes to the garden. The garden's generous size and enclosure made for a perfect cricket pitch for the kids! There is plenty to do and see in Elgin and Lossie, with them both being a short drive away from the house. Would definitely recommend Rizza's ice cream parlor in Lossie. Yummy!! The welcome pack was a lovely touch, making us feel at home straight away. We will definitely be returning to Old Duffus!!
