Larchfield Chalet 1 Self-Catering

Holiday home
This is a custom built timber chalet in an elevated position overlooking the little spa town of Strathpeffer. It provides bright, airy accommodation and is warm and welcoming. There are three spacious and comfortable bedrooms; one twin, accessed by a loft ladder, perfect for children wanting an exciting hideaway, a double on the ground floor and a further single bedroom on the ground floor. The open plan living area has a fitted kitchen, dining and sitting area with doors to a veranda with furniture and a shared gravel area. This is an unusual property in a great location ready to take advantage of the diverse opportunities in this part of Scotland.

Area
The lovely little spa town of Strathpeffer grew up after the discovery of exceptionally pure springs in the 18th Century. The waters were declared the healthiest in Britain in 1819 and the town burgeoned from there. The pavilion has been restored and is now used as a venue for events including concerts, dramas and live theatre. The former railway station was built in the Victorian times and it now serves as home to The Highland Museum of Childhood and craft workshops. Holiday makers can still sample the water in the old pump house, which is also a Tourist Information point. There are lovely walks to explore nearby and Strathpeffer is super base for a holiday as it is close to many attractions and only 20 miles from the thriving city of Inverness.

Region
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.

There is no wifi up there and the directions did not take us all the way to Larchfield but the owner came out and found us,he was very obliging and said if we wanted any info to call him.. We enjoyed the beautiful views over the valley and would go back there again.

Chalet was a lovely comfy home from home, nice and warm on the cold nights and morning and a beautiful location.. We were met by the owner who showed us around and how everything worked and he was always on hand if needed. It has everything you could need and was a really enjoyable week. Very quiet, high up location with stunning views which is one of the things we loved about the holiday. Just generally a lovely little chalet to come back to after a cold day out, would highly recommend this chalet, child friendly and very clean and tidy Thank you

Lovely comfortable chalet with everything we needed for a relaxed break.. The view from the balcony is fab and the welcome was very warm. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the location is peaceful. We put the chalet name into Google maps and had no problems finding it up on a wooded hill between Dingwall and Strathpeffer. Great base for exploring the area but also comfortable for any rainy rest days too.

I was met by the owner to collect the keys, shown where the heating controls were and the shower, and then left alone with no further visits, which is as it should be.. A bottle of wine and a box of chocolates are on the table for the visitor, which is a nice touch. For my cooking requirements, everything that I needed was available in the kitchen. The views across the valley towards Strathpeffer and beyond are quite spectacular, with sliding doors accessing a small balcony, and it would be very pleasant to sit out there on a sunny day, which somehow eluded me during my stay! The location is pleasantly quiet, although a neighbour's heating boiler can occasionally intrude, it is of little concern, and out of the control of the owner. Given the location, it is perhaps not surprising that there is no Wi-Fi available, which may put some people off, but with an aversion to social media, it was of little concern to me. There is a very good 4G signal strength, however. For self-catering, there is a large Tesco in nearby Dingwall, and access to cheaper fuel there too.

This was a lovely little place to stay and the views were stunning! The owners were wonderful and very helpful and truly made this feel like a home away from home. I would highly recommend these chalets to friends and we will definitely return. Also, I read other feedback where people had trouble finding them. We put larchfield chalets into our search on google maps and it took us straight there without any problems, so I would suggest searching for that rather than a postcode.

Lovely little chalet.. Alan and Sandra couldn't have been nicer. Difficult to find but Alan met us in Strathpeffer and led us the few minutes to the chalet. Cottage has everything you need. Great place to use as a base to explore the highlands.

This was a good base for all the activities which we had planned to do on our holiday. On the whole the property was good but a few niggly points for me, there was not enough space around the table for 6 people only 4, there was no family size freezer, and if you are not cooking or eating out (which the owner commented to me on arrival) why is there a dishwasher . Owners would be better off advertising the property as 4 and not 6.

An excellent holiday chalet: very comfortable, great location, wonderful views. The only problem - not a big one - is that the directions to the property were unhelpful (unlike the owners who came to meet us and show us the way)

This is a well equipped chalet with nice views and very welcoming hosts. It is well located for visiting the Highlands if you don't fancy moving around to a different B&B every few days. Do not even attempt to find it on your own the first time, phone Alan the owner and he is happy to come and guide you from Strathpeffer.

The owners were welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Our cottage was the larger of two alpine style chalet buildings which are have a hillside location. The cottage was warm and comfortable for four of us and two dogs. Two of us are young fit people who could climb the loft ladder for access to the upstairs bedroom without difficulty. The cottage would be OK for up to five people. It is close to Strathpeffer with easy access to main routes. There are good walks for folks and dogs around Strathpeffer including excellent woodland and hill walks.
