Die Unterkunft
We are a happy, easy going couple who arrived at Andrewsford ten years ago when it was undoubtedly a large traditional farmhouse which are renowned for being cold, draughty and expensive to run. Not any more! We have stripped the property internally to re-plumb, re-wire, insulate and upgrade the heating system to Underfloor Heating in most rooms downstairs. The result is a warm, cosy and characterful home.
Since the kids have flown the nest it is a very large house for two people to rattle around in so we welcome you with open arms.

The house retains a lot of its original character, with open fireplaces in the lounge and entertainment room and we enjoy amazing sunrise and sunsets. The house is surrounded by wild Rabbits, Pheasant, Partridge, Ducks, Deer and Wild Geese in autumn to winter. A joy to watch from a distance. There is a wee dinghy also available on the pond with oars for the more adventurous to get into the nature side.
We keep Chickens and Pigs for pets. The Chickens provide us with free-range eggs and the pigs, namely "Salt & Pepper" are the best ground clearance machines known to mankind. NONE of the pets are edible!!

Bedrooms -
The bedrooms vary from large to sufficient and are all equipped with a comfortable double bed and pillows, new carpets, bedside tables and lamps. Wardrobe and Chest of drawer complete the room. The largest room has views of the main garden where the other three have views of the morning sunrise. We have a TV licence so if you wish to log onto Netflix or TV by Wi-Fi while cuddled up in bed, feel free!
Note - Double bed rooms can be re-arranged for single beds if required by prior request.

Bathroom - (John and Alison have a separate bathroom facility so to cut down the traffic the 1st floor bathroom is solely for the use of our guests)
The Bathroom is equipped with heating radiator, Fan Heater for the cold blooded, sink, loo and cast iron bath with hi-flow power shower above.

Downstairs conceals another lavatory under the stairs to save running up and down the stairs in cases of emergency!

Car parking - This is no problem with more than sufficient spaces near the front door.

Laundry & Drying -
All Linen and towels are provided and you can use the Washing Machine and Tumble Drier for stays more than 5 days.
Note - we do not request a "Cleaning Charge" for bedsheet change each Friday and replacement towels every 3rd day unless requested otherwise. If you should require more than this please advise prior to booking as there would be an additional charge.
Wet clothes can be placed in the laundry overnight to dry out and wet boots can be left in the warm back porch to dry overnight

BBQ's -
Should you wish to have a BBQ in the evening or at weekends we can provide you with the BBQ or Smoker units and simply request that you provide the charcoal, tidy up and clean out the units on completion.

Early Check-in can be accommodated by prior arrangement but otherwise must be after 3pm.

- The Castle Trail - with several impressive castles within a 30 minute drive.

Distillery Trails - Apart from the nearest distillery in Meldrum, (visitor centre open by prior booking several times a week) which also claims to be the oldest, Glen Garioch you could join a "Whisky Trail" coach tour so you can sample the delights at each distillery unless you have a driver with you in which case you are not far from Andrewsford to several fine distilleries and highland towns?

Lage

Saint Katherines, Schottland, Vereinigtes Königreich

The Neighbourhood is a good natured farming community intermixed with Equestrians and small businesses. The local dialect is Doric but they will revert to sentences which even the English will understand. The community is interspersed with inhabitants of other parts of Scotland, The Islands, Shetlands, Orkney as well as the occasional Kiwi, Irishman, French and Aberdonians.

The website added Hey I'm Alison & John. But WE of course are Alison & John! Alison is Australian and John is Irish but both have lived in UK for 40 plus years before meeting each other in Aberdeen some 20 years ago. We are a happy, easy go couple wishing to share a large traditional farmhouse, since the kids have flown the nest it is large house for two people to rattle around in. We love it here. The house has a lot of character and Aberdeenshire is blessed with amazing sunrise and sunsets. We have put a lot of effort and money into turning Andrewsford around into what it is today. If you fancy a bit of gardening this the best place you could ever go (and we would appreciate the help!) There is a wee dinghy also available on the pond with oars for the more adventurous to get into the nature side. We really enjoy the locality, the local folk and the crack that goes on. Obviously, in a rural environment everybody knows everybody's business and if you don't tell them they will make it up which is also fun when we hear "the latest". Our neighbours are largely farmers interspersed with mechanical, quarrying and other small industries which help to ad diversity. We have both traveled extensively and net many but not all nationalities of the world. We enjoy meeting new people, different cultures and the incredibly diverse cuisine of the different nations and regions. We look forward to meeting you and offering our hospitality. Alison & John
