    We had the pleasure of staying at Willowvale for a week in June. This is an exceptional holiday rental and we can't wait to return! The gardens are huge and provide for endless entertainment - hide and seek, golf, football matches, or just a leisurely stroll to admire the beautiful flowers. The house is furnished to a high standard with plenty of room to socialize and relax. The kitchen is the heart of the home with the Aga and every convenience imaginable. This is an ideal rental for a large family or group of friends. Jenny and Neil have gone above and beyond to create a luxurious and welcoming experience for their guests. Thank you for your hospitality!
  • Valerie Crawford
    I would certainly recommend this beautiful spacious and comfortable family home. It is suitable for 4 couples or a family group. The living accommodation is very homely, cosy and inviting with open log burning fire in the lounge, log burning stove in the living room/hall area and Aga in the large dining kitchen. There is an abundance of art work, lots of books, maps, games - including pool and table tennis and CDs. The bedrooms are all beatifully decorated and spacious. Jenny did everything to make us feel comfortable - a welcome hamper, beer in the fridge, lots of fresh flowers in the public rooms and bedrooms, a dream kItchen with every appliance one could imagine. We spent a wonderful weekend and could not improve this home in any way!
  • Jean Robertson
    What a wonderful location for my special birthday celebration. Mrs Watson, the owner, made us feel very welcome on our arrival. The house was superb in every way. The warm and homely atmosphere made our stay very comfortable. Every detail had been thought of for our enjoyment and convenience. Outside, the lovely large private garden was an additional pleasure. The proximity of the golf course was also a big plus for our family. Hopefully we may return sometime in the future.
  • G & D Swinburn
    Fantastic house, fantastic garden, what a wonderful week we had in Willowvale. The house has such a warm feel to match the warm welcome we received. The standard inside is equal to that of the outside, all top quality and everything that all three generations could need. It was the perfect place for a family celebration and in such a beautiful part of the world. Thank You.
  • S & R Mitchell
    I just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed our stay in your fabulous home. We have stayed in many rented holiday homes over the years and Willowvale is without a doubt the most beautifully furnished and best equipped. The house has a lovely, warm feeling, probably a lot to do with it being your home and having your personal touch and flair for design. Despite your living upstairs we never at any time felt or heard your presence, yet you were really welcoming and helpful at the same time. Your garden is magnificent and filled with wildlife - we saw a heron, a deer and plenty of rabbits, happily all of which escaped the dogs' attention! I shall certainly be recommending Willowvale to our friends.
  • D. C.
    Thankyou for a lovely holiday here in house and garden. You obviously have the gift of combining a warm and spacious welcome while remaining quite unobtrusive!
  • Paul A.
    The house is a joy to stay in, the garden is amazing - loved watching the deer and playing golf. Thankyou for the warm welcome and kind touches.
  • S. T.
    Wonderful house, lots of space, very relaxing, home from home, nice flowers, beautiful garden! Thanks for your hospitality.
  • Visitor book comment
    What a wonderful week. Our Nairn holiday has lived up to our expectation in every possible way. The house is wonderful, a real joy. So fully equipped and so beautifully decorated, we felt at home from the word 'go'! Thankyou for thinking of EVERYTHING - it was so very much appreciated by children, parents and grandparents alike. We would love to come back.
  • Shona Leith
    We were stunned by this house. It was an absolute dream! The kitchen was well equipped and cosy, very bright and airy. The decor all round the house is beautiful and artwork stunning we felt like we'd stepped into a good homes magazine. The garden was large enough to lose our 4 kids and 2 dogs for hours at a time and the football mad boys didn't touch a football for 2 weeks as the golf clubs and games room caught their attention. Although the weather wasn't too great we were glad of an excuse to stay at home and enjoy the sumptuous surroundings . Home made shortbread and lovely hand creams, bubble baths and shower gels were much appreciated touches made by the Watson family. Don't be put off by fact they occupy the upper level of Willowvale as we neither saw or heard them unless we sought them out and their living space is completely self contained with seperated garden and entrance. They are a lovely family and want you to enjoy the house and treat it as your own( I wish) . We were initially sceptical about all of us being in the same house but I cannot recommend this home highly enough and it quickly became the highlight of our holiday. I will certainly be recommending to all my friends and hope to return very soon
  • Annie Wright
    We had the most wonderful week staying at Willowvale. This property is not a holiday house but a holiday home. It has real heart and soul. Bookshelves lined with an assortment of reading for everyone. Maps to help us find our way. The kitchen is a dream starting with the Aga oven, Le Creuset cookware and cookbooks galore. It was so easy to cook up a feast. And we must mention the huge world map hung above the large dining table. Amazing how a map can stimulate such interesting dinner time conversation. We also enjoyed sitting in the large lounge room listening to an impressive CD collection. The kids had many hours playing table tennis and played a few of the many board games. Each room was unique, beautifully decorated, with homely touches and fresh flowers from the garden. Each room had a magnificent view of the stunning gardens. The beds were extremely comfortable to guarantee good sleep each night. We look forward to coming back to Willowvale and highly recommend this property to everyone. Without a doubt it was the best property we stayed in during our time in Scotland. Thank you Willowvale for making our holiday so special.
