Fabulous house and excellent location for travelling to north east coast
We stayed from 13-20 July and had a fantastic time. House as always (we stayed previously in 2016) in perfect condition and stocked with everything you need and want. Great local store coop in Muir of Ord and Beauly has excellent deli plus other cafes and shops. We used as base to travel regularly to moray coastline and also north east to do hiking. Absol brilliant weather and walking about 10mls per day. Our 17 yr old daughter didn?t fancy that much so stayed at home lounging around sunbathing and in the enclosed hot tub. She also met pals in Inverness as train from Muir of Ord so all easy peasy. All in all a lovely break . The only thing for us is it doesn?t take pets and next year we will be proud owners of 2 dachshunds! So this may be our last stay. Book up you'll not be disappointed .

The perfect holiday rental
We booked Little Chestnut from the Sykes website, ie. 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.

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.

An excellent house with 5star facilities
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.

Perfect... Simply Perfect....
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...
