Welcome to Stonefolds Farm Cottages - high quality self catering holiday cottages in rural Aberdeenshire.
The three recently built, four star, cottages provide holiday accommodation in a peaceful location on our working cattle and sheep farm. They have panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. All guests are personally welcomed by myself, Shirley McNiven and my husband Neil. As we live on site we are available to provide any information our visitors require about the local area or our farm. The farm road is tarred, no farm track!
All the cottages are furnished and equipped to a high standard offering comfortable accommodation for people visiting the area on holiday or for work. They are all on one level with no internal steps. They all have wheelchair access and two cottages have showers making them suitable for some disabled people. Wi-fi is available in all the cottages.
Very peaceful location, with no traffic noise the only thing you will hear is the farm animals and the wild birds. With no light pollution, on a clear night it is possible to see a sky full of stars. Unlike the west coast of Scotland Aberdeenshire is generally midge free which means you can make the most of the long summer evenings.
Stonefolds farm is a short drive from Fyvie village which has a magnificent castle. The area is home to numerous properties run by National Trust Scotland. The market town of Turriff provides a range of shops. We are close to Ellon, Inverurie, Peterhead and Fraserburgh while the towns and villages of the Moray coast are all within easy driving distance.
Stonefolds cottages provide an ideal base for visitors to the North-east of Scotland. Aberdeenshire has good roads, no single track main roads, making driving easier. We are just 30 minutes drive from Aberdeen airport and just a little longer to the centre of Aberdeen, the ‘Granite city’, with its many attractions. The whisky trail can take you from Oldmeldrum into Moray to the well known distilleries’ such a Glenfiddich.
Stonefolds Farm is not organic but is run sustainably. We have planted trees and hedges to encourage wildlife and birds. For those interested in birds there is RSBP Loch of Strathbeg near Fraserburgh, the Ythan estuary at Newburgh and the nature reserve at Forvie. We generate some or our own electricity with a small wind turbine
We do not accept any pets.
