Property information

NEW SWIMMING POOL FOR 2014!! READY END MAY. This Grade A listed Georgian mansion is the perfect self-catering holiday home for families who want to relax. With seven bathrooms, the house is ideal for a shared economical holiday. With an outdoor heated swimming pool, and a full size antique snooker table in the games room, all that's needed is you!

The swimming pool is being installed in Spring 2014 and will be open from May 24th onwards. It will not be available in either of the Low Seasons.

Situated just a 30-minute drive from Inverness, on the rich farmland of the Black Isle, Poyntzfield is a particularly good self-catering house, large enough for groups and families with lots of children who are made most welcome. A great atmosphere reigns here: pets are welcome by arrangement, and roaring log fires welcome you home after a day on the hills.

Inverness offers the usual facilities associated with a popular tourist city, and cruises on Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle are recommended. The outdoor sports resort of Aviemore is just over an hour's drive away, as is Ullapool and the west coast.

The Black Isle greatly rewards exploration and offers pony trekking, sea angling, bike hire, golf, and dolphin watching cruises. In fact, the dolphins can be seen from the shore in Fortrose each day as they follow the shoals of fish up the firth on the incoming tide. At Rosemarkie you will find a sandy beach, children's playpark and tennis courts.

Cycling has become particularly popular on the Black Isle, as the roads are quiet for those who like to travel far and wide on road bikes, and the whole peninsula is criss-crossed by tracks and trails for mountain bikes. In 2005, a new cross-country/downhill track was developed on the south side at Learnie and this presents some challenging routes.

Eathie beach along the coast is also quite famous for its fossils, examples of which can be seen in the Hugh Miller Museum in Cromarty.

Summer visitors will appreciate the very low midge population.

Fishing can be booked on the Ross-shire rivers and trout fisheries.

The accommodation comprises the main part of the house and the west wing which are connected on the ground floor, but the higher floors are accessed by separate staircases.

The caretaker and family lives in the east wing (no interior connection).

  • 9 x 4 metre swimming pool (outdoor, covered)

    Stayed at Poyntzfield House in July 2013 and had one of the best family holidays! The house was amazing, and catered for all our needs, our party had a range of ages from 1 to 53, the gardens were a lovely setting for our family 'sports day' cricket games and a few Hurst badminton battles! The games room was n instant hit with the men in the party and the library was great for our pub quiz nights, couldn't fault anything. Local beaches were lovely especially the ferry across to Nigg, Would definitely recommend.
  • joy royle
    We have just returned from a holiday at Poyntzfield House, and all 17 of us would definitely go there again. We have holidayed in scotland for the past 20 years and Poyntzfield has to be the most comfortable and well equiped house we have stayed in. Definitely a winner with adults and children alike.
  • linda ,wigan
