Description from 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 lovely restored Victorian wrought iron fireplace - ideal for cosy evenings in, original floor boards and flagstones. There is a private garden with BBQ 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.

“Comfortable and peaceful country retreat”
Quiet & peaceful location yet within easy reach of nearby attractions such as Elgin, Ardersier and Logie Steading and sandy beaches at Hopeman, Covesea, Findhorn and Lossiemouth. The lodge is very well equipped and the welcome pack of local products was a lovely gesture.

Was exactly what we needed, having a dog is always hard to find accommodation, would like to have spent longer

Caroline was very friendly and helpful and the cottage was very welcoming and homely. We had a relaxing weekend.

“Fantastic Holiday Cottage”
We had a fantastic two weeks in The Lodge. The cottage is perfect for a couple or small family and the garden is large and fully enclosed so perfect for dogs. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday and the lounge is comfy and welcoming after a day out on the beach or in the forest, the bedroom is also large and airy and the bed very comfortable. We would definitely return.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking time to write us a review. I am delighted you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to welcoming you back to Duffus Estate next year.
This is a great lodge in the perfect location to explore moray. Everything that we neede was provided and we really appreciated the welcome basket. Thank you for our wonderful stay and we look forward to returning.
