Award-winning Hobbit Hideaway is a unique & beautiful space designed to invoke inner peace & tranquillity. It was handcrafted with love to provide a real sense of warmth & nourishment, a welcome escape from the pressures of daily life. It has been described as being like a giant hug, a place that once you enter, you can't help but smile!

The space
If you've ever wanted to experience living in an exquisite natural home, this is your chance. Hobbit Hideaway is a bespoke architectural delight, purpose-built using locally sourced, plentiful, renewable, and recycled materials including straw-bales, round-wood, stone, earth, and clay. It is furnished with a high percentage of pre-loved, re-purpose, and recycled treasures. It is a true eco-home.

We make it easy for you to enjoy a stress-free, low-impact holiday. Pick your own fresh and seasonal food straight from the garden, use our fairtrade beverages, reusable cups, bottles & bags, compost bins & recycling facilities as well as cruelty-free soaps and cleaning products. The electricity is sourced from 100% renewable energy and the water is straight from the spring, as used in Speyside whisky production. Seriously delicious water!

You will find special touches throughout, added with love, for your comfort and pleasure. We pride ourselves on being inclusive and accessible and should you have any special needs or requirements we will do our best to make any reasonable adjustment to accommodate them.

For your entertainment, we have provided free unlimited wifi, a JVC bluetooth speaker, and a large selection of books, games, jigsaw puzzles and wooden toys, including a trainset and giant Jenga.

Outside you can dine alfresco using the BBQ, picnic tables, firepit, and various tables and chairs around the Hideaway.

If you want a technology-free break, simply switch the wifi off or ask us to remove it, to remove temptation!

Hobbit Hideaway is ideal for four people but it's deceptively spacious, so we provided two additional sleeping spaces for large families or small groups. We also keep our prices the same all year round as we think it's unfair to penalise families with high prices during school holidays. We welcome pets and don't charge extra as they make less mess than kids!

We provide a welcome treat, fire-wood, cruelty-free soaps, cooking basics and a variety of fairtrade beverages​.

We have always cleaned to a very high standard and are totally committed to complying with all Covid-19 cleaning regimes and the use of appropriate chemicals to ensure our guest's safety. We do our best to keep our place spotless, germ-free and a safe place to relax and enjoy time-out from the pressures of daily life.

Guest access
Hobbit Hideaway is your own private space with its own garden. You have full access to the wider garden, which you share with us. It is approximately 2 acres, with open green space, paths, wild garden areas, a kitchen garden with polytunnel, a fire pit and an enchanting fairly glen with a bubbling brook.
You are welcome to take the basket provided to pick your own fresh fruit and vegetables for dinner. There is a fire pit and a BBQ provided for those who enjoy dining alfresco. For the intrepid adventurer, you can wander down to the babbling brook at the foot of the garden, with mini waterfalls and pools, where you can take a picnic, go fairy spotting or simply relax and reconnect with nature. Children and dogs really enjoy the space to run about and explore. Dogs must be supervised at all times as we have free-range chickens in our garden area (which is separated by a small fence).

Other things to note
Please abide by all local rules and regulations relating to Covid-19 when you are planning your visit.
The house is a natural home and you will find a manual with information about its build as well as for instructions on how to use the facilities provided when you arrive as well as things to do in the local area. We recommend that you bring slippers or thick socks to wear inside in the winter months (Oct-May) as the earthen floor can be cool underfoot for some people.

*Please note that Hobbit Hideaway has private sleeping spaces for four people. However, we understand the value of holidays with larger families and small groups so added two comfy fold-down futon beds in the communal living area. There are two bamboo screens to provide extra privacy whilst sleeping. The place is comfortable and spacious enough to accommodate six.
