We first stayed at Little Chestnut 4 years ago and it is still as immaculate as it was back then, everything you could possibly need and lovely friendly owners who go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay.. Well worth the long drive up from Cornwall, we had an amazing holiday.

Great holiday in perfect accommodation.. Little Chestnut is modern, immaculate and spacious and Muir of Ord is a great base for exploring the highlands. Days out to Rosemarkie, Dornoch and Loch Affric; climbed Ben Wyvis and Stac Polliadh. All in all a wonderful fortnight

This is the second time we have stayed at Little Chestnut with our family at Christmas, and the experience was awesome as ever.. The Christmas decorations and well equipped kitchen made it all effortless. Everything is high quality and absolutely lovely. Theresa is friendly and welcoming. The hot tub, sauna and outdoor barbeque are a real bonus for relaxing after days out exploring the local area. Would recommend a visit to the Bad Girls Bakery just around the corner, or a browse around the School House in Beauly. All in all an outstanding place to stay.

This was probably one of the most accommodating cottages we have ever stayed in you literally want for nothing.. There simply isn't anything else to say about the place. If there is a down side(and this is purely a personal opinion) it's not remote enough there is nowhere to go for walks as your located in the village centre, and with exception of the thousands of geese flying overhead there is no wildlife full stop didn't even see a bird in the garden. If they were located a little more remotely I'd have booked for next October already. This apart the "little chestnut" is a little gem and to those of you who just want to relax get yourself booked in before it's to late you won't be disappointed 10/10 easily

We were on Honeymoon and what away to start our marriage life, the cottage was really lovely we couldn't have asked for better and the host & hostess couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect..

Great accommodation, spacious, very clean, comfortable- felt private and peaceful despite being attached to owners property.. Owners kindly took in our food delivery so that everything was ready for arrival. Warm welcome including a nice bottle - thank you! Hot tub and BBQ hut fantastic. Beautiful area with plenty to do for our young family. Would recommend highly.

We booked Little Chestnut from the Sykes website, i.e. not following recommendation. On and off, over 47 years, we have stayed in very many holiday rentals. Little Chestnut is by far the best we have used. The standards of finish and presentation are superb, the facilities and equipment range is extremely wide including hot tub, sauna, purpose build and very comfortable hut, Sky TV, and every possible piece of equipment you could need. Though attached to the owners property, it is extremely private, quiet and, in our view, idyllic. The location suited us in that we were 3-400 yards from a railway station giving access to the whole of Northern Scotland not to mention the beautiful scenery on our doorstep.

Just Wonderful!

We have been staying in rented holiday properties over a period of 48 years.. In every assessment category, Little Chestnut is by far the best we have used. The attention to detail in construction, finish, cleanliness, neatness and general ambience, the range of equipment and facilities available and the quietness, privacy and location made this the perfect holiday home. A real credit to the owners and to Sykes.

The cottage was amazing and is ideal for going sight seeing then returning to a night in the hot tub what more could you ask and the people who own the cottage could not be more helpful or welcoming a trip of a lifetime I would give it 11 out of 10

This 5 star cottage is absolutely fantastic the owners have thought of everything from underfloor heating to the hot tub sauna and indoor bbq which we unfortunately didn't get to use as we were both full of cold but would most certainly have used if tbis had not been the case.. The owers ken and teresa made us most welcome and were there to meet us on arrival and ran throgh everything with us and then left us to our own devices wirh instructions just to knock if we needed anything as they only live next door. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we are in the area again and will definitely recommend little chestnut to our family and friends

Hosts very welcoming and willing to help with anything, they even helped us take our shopping in. The house itself is very clean and well maintained, it is also extremely spacious for a 3 bed. The hot tub, sauna and BBQ hut are great facilities. Cant recommend this place enough and will definitely be looking to return.

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty.. Nothing was too much problem. The house is beautiful and we'll equipped, the hot tub, sauna were spotless and the scenery around the area was breathtaking.

Absolutely gorgeous property, first class and extremely clean.. Everything you need like a home from home. Absolutely loved the hot tub and sauna which were very private. BBQ hut was great fun. Would definitely recommend the property.

We were a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 teenagers: 19 & 15. We all absolutely loved our time in the house; you are very close to Beauly with its award winning Deli (and reasonably priced I may add for take away or sit in); we walked the 6 miles there and back (3/3) daily for coffee / scones and was a great way to start your morning; the kids spent entire time lazing around the exceptionally well equipped house (tv in each room, great wifi which also allowed me to work and download files from the cloud) and the outside facilities were amazing: 4 man (actually it could take more) hot tub, separate shower, bathroom and sauna! Think of a large outside garage all glass fronted - it was brilliant; robes and slippers provided too! Then there was the indoor BBQ - again exceptionally well laid out; we used it at least twice; there's a fabulous butcher in both Muir of Ord & Beauly; lots of eateries too for take aways or large supermarket at Dingwall (15 mins away); equally eat out in Inverness or spend day there in cafes and shops; Urquharts was very good and great value - you can take the train to Inverness too - try it, brilliant fun - it's like the Edinburgh Fringe on rails!! Ken & Theresa were super hosts - look after you and then disappear and let you enjoy; it's entirely private and they are so relaxed, you can only do similarly. Visit, you'll not be disappointed.

Not really.. Little Chestnut was very comfortable and had everything and more than we could have wished for, was extremely clean inside and out. Well done to Theresa and Kenny.

Arriving at Little Chestnut after a long 6hr drive was definitely a delight... our hosts Ken & Theresa welcomed us with a full tour and run down on all the features... (and a special very welcome treat) - the place is stunning, finished to the highest of standards and quite a lot Kens own work... Other than the wonderful location and superb property we chose 'Little Chestnut' for the fun factor of the Jacuzzi, Sauna & mid Winter BBQ Hut !! Again these were of the highest and cleanest of standards - we had a great night enjoying a Barbie in perfect warmth on a -3 night followed by a relaxing dip in the hot tub... what really stands out is how your privacy is in no way compromised and even with the folding doors fully retracted nobody can overlook. We've been to lodges where you can hold a conversation with your neighbours !! Ken and Theresa have thought of everything... robes, disposable slippers and more towels than you could ever use, kitchen with every utensil you could need. You can tell these guys have very high standards as even the crockery is Denby - no cheap Supermarket rubbish here !! I'm pretty sure the guys ordered us perfect weather too as we witnessed some sunsets that would rival the Caribbean !! All in all I have to say that we were thrilled with Little Chestnut, wowed by the standards, stunned by the scenery of the Highlands and Merry from the wonderful tastes of the many distillerys around... I would recommend this place and in fact are looking forward to our next stay !! Thank you Ken and Theresa - we'll see you soon...

An absolutely first class property that exceeded our expectations. The whole family enjoyed their stay at Little Chestnut with more than enough space to accommodate the needs of us all. The hot tub and sauna was a superb addition with the BBQ building being a big hit with every one. We would defiantly recommend and we will be back soon.

Five of us stayed here for 4 days and it was totally awesome! The cottage was perfectly situated for days out to almost all parts of the Highland Region The west coast is just over an hour's drive with spectacular views along every mile of the route. Inverness and the Whisky Trail only 30 minutes away. The cottage had everything. Absolutely everything! From a vast range of kitchen appliances and utensils to the bath robes and slippers for use in the hot tub and sauna. The hot tub has to be seen to be believed. Perfect relaxation after a day out and a place to savour a cold drink. In plastic cups of course! Bedrooms were large and the huge kitchen and lounge just ideal for sitting around and planning the next day's itinerary. Overall, the perfect place to use as a base for exploring the Highlands of Scotland
Mr Paterson
July 2016
This accommodation is the best that I have ever had. I would recommend it to everyone that asks where do I go for the best accommodation? It was also a very good base to explore the highlands from. The hot tub went down a treat with the whole family because it was in its own building. I hope to go there again next year.
Mrs Parrott

What can we say but wow! A Fabulous property, 5* for everything! The owners are friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic stay and will certainly recommend it.Thank you for sharing your beautiful house.

Absolutely amazing week away. The owners thought of everything and went out of their way to make Little Chestnut feel like a home from home. We enjoyed every single minute of our stay.
Mrs Davis

Little Chestnut is an exceptional property and we loved every minute of our stay there. The owners could not have been more helpful on our arrival going through all the information we required for our stay. It was spotless and had everything you could possibly require and was indeed a home from home. We have been to many self catering properties over the years and this has to be one of the very best if not the best one we have been to.
Mr Kerr
December 2015
The hot tub, sauna and bbq hut facilities made this property a cut above anywhere we've previously stayed. Under floor heating was also a nice touch, with each room having its own temperature control. The owners were particularly friendly and helpful too. Would recommend Little Chestnut to anyone! We had a wonderful stay.
Mrs Morris

Genuinely outstanding property, with a very high standard of finishing to complement the excellent layout. Great location to use as a base for exploring as far wide as you can drive. Best self catering property we've experienced.
