ABOUT COWDEN FARMHOUSE
Cowden Farmhouse is located in a picturesque rural area on the east coast of Scotland, 7 miles south of the lovely seaside town of Stonehaven - home to the spectacular Dunnottar Castle and birthplace of the famous deep fried Mars Bar!
Cowden Farmhouse is dog friendly, and enjoys unsurpassed peace and privacy in it's own secluded location away from our main farm activity. It's accessed by a half mile long, private drive, and lies in the heart of our fields with spectacular, far reaching views from it's elevated position, and has only our sheep and herd of Icelandic Horses for neighbours!
The 1.8 acres of beautifully designed mature gardens offer a combination of lawns, woodland areas and decking, surrounded by gorgeous beech hedges - home to a multitude of birds. To enable our guests to enjoy the outside spaces to their maximum, there is a cute summer house, a Weber gas bbq, outdoor dining furniture, garden furniture, hammocks and a fire pit.
We've put a lot of thought into equipping Cowden Farmhouse with everything our guests could need, from a boot jack and umbrella in the front porch, to an insulated picnic bag and freezer blocks for picnics. The kitchen has all the appliances you'd require to whip up a five course meal, (you're on holiday - why would you?!) and we provide all of the sundry items from washing powder to olive oil. The only shopping you'll need to do is for your food and drink!
The heart of the house is a communal sitting area with a log burning stove, open to the 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, and leads directly out onto to some decking - perfect for morning coffee or evening drinks!
Also on the ground floor, there is a large bathroom, (roll top bath with hand held shower) the Master bedroom, (king sized bed) a single bedroom and a lounge - furnished with 3 sofas and a 50" television with dvd player. (selection of dvds and family board games provided) The lounge is a great place for everybody to chill out in the evening, and has an external door leading to the summer house and bbq area. Accessed from the lounge is a further versatile room which has 2 sofa beds, allowing it to be used as additional sleeping quarters, or as social space.
Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms ( 1 King and 1 twin) and a shower room. Quality, comortable beds, feather duvets and luxurious bed linen ensure a sound, comfortable night, and the wonderful views from the bedroom windows are always a talking point!
