A fairytale, chocolate-box cottage, rich in history and packed with character. The Pheasantry is at the heart of Mayen Estate, overlooking the walled garden, with butterfly meadows and of course, the River Deveron a stone’s throw away. With the children free to explore the gardens, free-range hens providing the eggs for breakfast and a view of a Koi Carp Aquarium from the bedroom window, The Pheasantry provides an idyllic highland retreat for all the family.
Originally build as a Laundry for the Georgian mansion, Mayen House and steeped in history, this historic granite building has been finished throughout in furnishings with all of the charm you could imagine from a rural Scottish cottage, providing a calm and relaxing atmosphere for up to four guests.
This quaint cottage has two bedrooms, one king-size and one twin, with especially comfortable beds decked in luxury linen. The family bathroom has a freestanding antique roll-top bath as well as a separate shower and underfloor heating.
The quaint, open-plan kitchen-living area features a wood-burning stove that fills the cottage with warmth. Relax and slow down together, reading a book or playing a game in the cosy living room. Bake a cake or whip up a three-course meal in the fully equipped kitchen, which has a double oven and hob, fridge-freezer, and everything you’ll need for cooking your favourite meals.
Wake up to a view of the walled garden from the master bedroom and enjoy a soak in the antique free-standing bath, or there’s also a shower if you prefer.
With the opportunity to enjoy dining outside, by the BBQ in the beautifully maintained, secluded, private garden this cosy cottage offers a traditional family holiday experience.
