The Coach House, set in the grounds of the Edwardian Auchendean Lodge, is furnished to a very high standard, and a wonderful holiday base. The apartment shares unbeatable views of Strathspey, from the double bends of the River Spey, the Cromdale Hills and Abernethy Forest, right to the mighty Cairngorm Mountains. A variety of fresh herbs from the organic garden are usually available late spring to autumn. Explore the area, perhaps even the isolated Loch Avon, by foot, horse or bike. The Strathspey Steam Railway stops at Broomhill station, a few hundred yards below the property offering a scenic ride in the style of a by-gone era. Day trips include Balmoral, Royal Deeside, Loch Ness and much of the west coast. Bird watching, golf and fishing locally. Shop and restaurant 1 mile.

Customer Reviews of The Coach House, Dulnain Bridge, Sleeps 2
1st comment: The property was easy to find very well signposted, (just look for hotel sign!) the gardens are wonderful plenty of wildlife, it was a joy to come back to and relax, Ian and Eric were always helpful if there was anything you needed, would recommend this gem to family & friends. May 2012.
2nd comment: A very well appointed flat, with the most amazing panoramic views. The owner was most welcoming and even cleared the snow off our car! April 2012.
3rd comment: This apartment is perfect for a couple and the hosts are wonderful!! We were lucky to have amazing weather and felt very relaxed and rested after our week’s holiday. We chose this accommodation because we hoped to collect a few mushrooms and they were everywhere; and the undoubted highlight of our week was the mushroom forage with Eric [one of the owners]one afternoon. We would highly recommend a visit. Sept 2011.
4th comment: Thanks again to Ian and Eric for making us feel very welcome. April 2011.
5th comment: The flat was very quiet with great views. The furniture was old but comfortable. Bess was very welcoming, just throw her stick and she was happy. Good value. April 2011.
