ABOUT COWDEN FARMHOUSE
Cowden Farmhouse has its own secluded location away from our main farm activity, and is surrounded by our fields of crops, livestock and herd of Icelandic ponies. from an elevated position, it enjoys spectacular views. The comfortably furnished house benefits from beautifully designed mature gardens offering a combination of shady woodland areas and sleep inducing sun traps. The peace and tranquillity makes Cowden Farmhouse the perfect bolthole from the stresses of modern daily life.
The heart of the house is a communal sitting area with a log burning stove, open to a well equipped, traditional farm kitchen. The sun lounge also forms part of this space, and is home to a large dining table, and spectacular views! Also on the ground floor, there is a large bathroom, (roll top bath with hand held shower) Master bedroom, (king sized bed) single bedroom and a lounge. Furnished with 3 sofas and a 50" wall mounted television and dvd player, (selection of dvds provided) the lounge is a great place for everybody to chill out in the evening.
Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms ( 1 twin and 1 double) and a shower room. The views from the bedroom windows are always a talking point.
THINGS TO DO
Cowden Farmhouse is ideally placed for easy access into the countryside, for gentle walks or cycling, but for the more adventurous guests, there is great hill walking and challenging mountain bike trails within easy reach.
Depending on the time of the year, shooting and fishing is widely available in the area, and can be arranged.
Stonehaven is a seaside town with a picturesque harbour, which offers pubs, restaurants and a range of leisure activities. It's also home to the famous Dunnottar Castle - a partly ruined medieval fortress, located out on a rocky headland. Featured as the location for 'Hamlet', starring Mel Gibson, the castle is an impressive sight, and well worth the walk.
For the very energetic, there is a 'Go Ape' treetop rope course - an unusual and exhilarating workout in the forest canopy!
