    “Excellent accommodation.”

    The pool was clean and heated throughout our stay. Wonderful family fun. One thing to say - we could only find one hairdryer. This was in the laundry. We would have liked a hairdryer in each bedroom.

The property

This Grade A listed Georgian mansion is the perfect self-catering holiday home for families who want to relax. With seven bath/shower rooms, 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! 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 beach or the hills. 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 most days 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, beach cafe and a bistro cafe. 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. There is a new cross-country/downhill track was developed on the south side at Red Rock 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! 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).

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

About the location


Strathpeffer 5 miles; Inverness 14 miles; Chanory Point 17 miles.

The attractive market town of Dingwall is situated at the head of the Cromarty Firth and has a rich history dating back to Norse times. The town today enjoys an excellent range of services and facilities, and its pedestrianised main street boasts a generous range of speciality cafes and charming small shops. Why not follow the Dingwall Heritage Trail, a walk that will take only 1 1/2 hours but will provide a wonderful insight into the history of this area? Close to Dingwall is the Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer, which is well worth a visit, or perhaps take a short drive to Chanory Point where the Moray Firth Dolphins are quite often seen jumping close to shore. There is also the option of seeing red kites at the RSPB Tollie red kites natural reserve, as well as a close proximity to Inverness that allows day trips to Inverness Castle, trampoline park, Inverness Botanic gardens and the many shops on offer.

Note: Bring own linen for travel cot. Note: Supervise children at the swimming pool at all times. Note: Though electricity is included in the rent, electric for charging cars is not included in the rental. Note: Though the swimming pool is heated, the enclosure is not heated.
