A charming property in a spectacular location within walking distance of the beach and bay, perfect for families and friends seeking a luxurious base to retreat to after a day of activities and adventures.

At the heart of picturesque Findhorn village, this substantial detached property is within walking distance of the village store for your everyday essentials. Treat yourself to a pastry from the bakery or enjoy locally produced food in one of the friendly cafes or pubs. Stroll the long unspoilt sandy beach or take buckets and spades for sandcastle building. Explore the underground chambers of Findhorn Icehouse built over 150 years ago to store ice for packing the locally caught salmon and discover the fascinating history of the village at the Heritage Centre. View the artworks and antiques on display in Brodie Castle (8.5 miles) and wander through the landscaped gardens and nature trail. Sample the single malt at Benromach Distillery (5.5 miles) and see the distillers at work on a guided tour.

Enjoying a spectacular position overlooking Findhorn Bay, your spacious holiday home offers stylish accommodation with luxurious touches. Pull onto the driveway and follow the path to the white front door. Step into the entrance hall with contemporary ceramic tile flooring and room to leave wellies and walking boots. Head along the hallway to the front of the property and enter the spacious sitting room with large bay window overlooking the water and a colourful rug adorning the polished wooden floor. Sink into one of the comfortable sofas and lose yourself watching the sailboats skimming across the bay. On cooler evenings light the wood burner and enjoy its gentle warmth as you chat late into the night. Next door you will find the cosy TV room for a family film night sharing a bucket of popcorn. Cooking is a dream in the sleek, minimalist kitchen which comes equipped with electric double oven and induction hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and microwave. A large archway leads through to the dining room, again enjoying wonderful sea views, where you will find a long table with colourful chairs that add to the bright, contemporary feel of this space. The first of the bedrooms is on this level, a snug room with a double bed dressed in a warm duvet and cosy throws. The ground floor bathroom has a wet-room style shower, washbasin and WC and there is a further WC off the hall. A stunning ANTA tartan carpet leads you up the wooden staircase to the first floor where you will find three further bedrooms, all tastefully decorated and appointed with crisp linens and luxurious soft furnishings. The master king-size bedroom is a relaxing space inviting you to rest your head and slumber. A pretty double bedroom and a cosy single bedroom with additional pull-out bed offer all guests a good night's sleep. A spacious shower room with washbasin and WC is ideal for freshening up before bed.

Outside, the front garden has a large lawn for garden games, sunbathing or picnic lunches. To the rear of the property is a lovely flower-filled front garden and spacious patio looking onto Findhorn Bay. Sit and sip a glass of wine watching the tide ebb and flow across the bay or step through the gate, across the road to access the shoreline for sunset strolls. There is driveway parking for two cars.

We appreciated the tea and shortbread on arrival. Loved the spacious communal spaces that enabled our large family group to be together easily. Splendid living room with floor length embroidered curtains and a range of books , games and jigsaws. Lovely views from two bedrooms of Findhorn bay. Comfortable bath and lovely showers upstairs and downstaRead moreirs. Well appointed garden with range of shrubs and flowers that inspired the gardeners in our group. Parking facilities very good but gate a bit narrow. Do put a visitors book on the house to collect comments. Hide

We had a wonderful time at Monessie as it was perfectly situated to enjoy the views of the Bays. The house was very spacious and beautifully decorated throughout. There was ample crockery and amazing white goods , the kitchen is particularly beautiful and has an excellent position also. Only complaint ; if it is one the beds were too soft ( but thiRead mores is really just a preference ). We would definitely use Monessie again. Hide

Our family spent Christmas week at Monessie House. This is a beautifully modernised home in a wonderful location. We were initially puzzled by the location of the main switches for the ovens and dishwasher. A bedroom chair would be useful, but we borrowed one from elsewhere. The kitchen is fabulous but not extensively equipped, and we managed very Read morewell. The outside space is beautiful and clearly recently re landscaped. It helped a lot that the weather over Christmas was beautiful and we had walks in the Culbin forest and on the beach every day. A lovely house and a memorable family occasion. Hide

The house is perfect, house and gardens renovated beautifully. We had lovely weather. Sitting outside the front of the house with amazing views watching the world go by was great. House was of a very high standard by way of comfort and equipment. We could not have asked for a more relaxing break, we did not want to leave.
