Historic accommodation, set in tranquil location

Delgatie Castle sits peacefully amid fields and forests, on a large country estate. It has a long and chequered history, dating back from 1050 and was once home to the late Captain Hay - a feudal baron. Now open to the public, the castle provides a wealth of interest for visitors, plus the opportunity to sample delicious home baking in the cosy tea room. The properties on offer here have been tastefully renovated and refurbished to provide spacious, modern holiday accommodation; which still retains much individual character. Ashwood and Elmwood are two of the four cottages, which form The Coach House; whilst the elegant Symbister Suite, located in the north wing of the castle, has, as you would expect, all the style and ambience of a real stately home - master bedroom. The ground floor of Elmwood (B4272) has been adapted for guests with disabilities, and also has a classification for unassisted wheelchair access. Turriff (3 miles) is home to a host of activities and interests. River fishing, with brown trout and salmon both available at cost. You can play golf on any of the several 18-hole courses in the area, or enjoy some time on a boating lake or even a putting green. Alternatively, play tennis, bowls, or go riding or shooting. Try the indoor sports and swimming pool complex.
