Spending the night in our barrel will make you feel like a hobbit living in the Shire. It can be used as a single or twin room. It's located in the heart of the Findhorn Community and Ecovillage, with the beach only 10 minutes walk away.

The space

You will have your own entrance through the front porch, a lush greenhouse with plants and flowers. Your B&B room is round (3.5 m or 11’6″ across) and has a warm and cosy wooden interior.

The barrel contains an upper and a lower single bed. Due to the roundness of the room the beds do not have a rectangular shape, so there will be slightly less space than you’re used to, and large people would probably be a bit uncomfortable in the lower single bed. You’ll have to climb a little ladder to get into the good-sized upper bed. The beds have memory foam mattresses, silk duvets and cotton linen.

There are cupboards, a curving desk and some comfy chairs for your convenience.

Guest access

The baby barrel doesn’t have its own en-suite bathroom, so we’ll share our bathroom with you. It has a washbasin, a shower and on request you could even make use of our bathtub. Other than the included breakfast, use of our kitchen is not possible .

Interaction with guests

We live in the same house and work from home. Interaction will mostly be limited to receiving you upon arrival and serving an organic vegetarian breakfast in our cosy kitchen in the morning.

We may be able to greet you in your native language. Shanti can speak English, German, Dutch and Italian and Ariane can speak Scottish with a New York City accent. :-)

Other things to note

In your room you will find a filtered water jug, a kettle to boil water and an assortment of teabags and instant coffee powders to make a hot drink.

Free WiFi is available in your room and a screen and media player to watch movies on.

We had a very brief stay at the Whisky Barrel and sadly did not get to explore everything that was on offer. Ariane and Shanti were welcoming and gave us a very good and interesting rundown of the history of the place. I slept on the top bunk and will admit it took a while to get off to sleep due to the height and shape!!! We both had a much needed restful night's sleep on the memory foam mattresses and were very grateful for the breakfast laid on in the morning. I would thoroughly recommend the Whisky Barrel.

Beautiful, quiet spot in the Findhorn Community, with nearby beachwalks. The bedroom was so comfortable with all amenities you might need and Ariane and Shanti put on a lovely breakfast. The whiskey barrel room is magical. Would highly recommend.

Great and interesting location, lovely hosts and an ideal place to discover more about the Findhorn Community. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming with lots of helpful advice about an area unknown to us. We wouldn't hesitate to visit them again.

Great little place in the beautiful beach town of Findhorn. Shanti greeted me on arrival and gave me many helpful suggestions of things to do in the area and places to eat. Comfortable, warm and cosy - could not ask for more. A wonderful breakfast selection in the morning too.

Great accommodation to stay in whether you are a couple or single person. The Barrel accommodation is right next to the conservatory type entrance and you are able to come and go without feeling you are disturbing your hosts. The bathroom is inside of the house but I did not have a problem accessing it during my stay... it was always free of occupants when I needed it. Great check in to the property as Shanti fully explains everything . I e noted my one night stay.

Ariane and Shanti's barrels are a wonderful part of the history of the foundation as well as being a great place to stay. Just a few moments walk from the universal hall and a short stroll to the beach. Thank you for your hospitality!
