Wild Farm Cottage is situated on the Glenlivet Estate near Tomintoul and is probably one of the most remote cottages in the area. It is so ‘out in the sticks’ that it is off grid, with a generator and bank of batteries providing the electricity.
Although in the middle of nowhere the cottage boasts a hot tub, sauna, plunge pool and games room, along with two fishing lochs and an abundance of wildlife. It is also in the middle of the most northerly International Dark Skies Park, so the opportunity to see fabulous night skies is endless.
Situated close to the Glenlivet Bike Trails there are also great opportunities for mountain biking, walking and trail running.
All the income from the cottage goes towards helping to support our lovely reindeer herd in their free ranging environment.
There are a few dates available still this summer and autumn, so if you are looking for a mini break in the back of beyond, Wild Farm Cottage is the place to be. The cottage sleeps 7 people, but lots of our bookings are just for two.
As well as some photos I have included some recent comments from our visitor book.
‘Another fantastic stay at this magical place.’
‘An explosion of wildlife including deer, buzzards and a pine marten along with a friendly chaffinch who has a liking for cheese!’
‘Simple things-cooking a meal, cheese and wine on the lawn, watching the red deer, ducks moving through the grass and rivers teeming with tadpoles, the light, the sky, the trees all will be remembered.’
‘The hot tub, sauna and even plunge pool were incredible. The only regret is that we had not booked for longer.’
‘A wonderful stay – beautiful walks and just to enjoy the wildlife from your doorstep. Visited heritage sites and had some whisky.’
‘Trip No. 4. Never tire of this place. Our lil’ piece of paradise. Incredible stars every night (October ), including some crazy meteors too, whilst sitting in the hot tub.’
‘What a beautiful place to relax.’
‘The cottage was warm, welcoming and tidy. The kids loved soaking in the hot tub.’
‘Fantastic as always, love this place.’
‘It’s such a wonderful place, both the cottage and it’s isolated calm and tranquility. It is more than we could have hoped for and provided a wonderful base for our handfasting and start of married life.’
