Cardhu Country House


Tel: 01340810895
An exclusive rural retreat in Speyside offering luxury bed and breakfast and fully catered and serviced accommodation. Cardhu Country House is at the very heart of the Whisky Trail where more than half of Scotland's malt whisky distilleries are to be found. The house is situated only a mile from the River Spey, famous for its fine salmon fishing, and from the Speyside Way, a long distance walking and cycling route which links the Cairngorms to the Moray Coast. Cardhu Country House is a former manse, which has been lovingly restored to offer luxurious accommodation over three floors. Contemporary en-suite bathrooms have been added to the six spacious bedrooms. Public rooms boast open fires, and our food is freshly prepared in our kitchen using only the finest local ingredients.

Beautiful house in the middle of the Speyside. Rooms are very large and so is the bed. We had a beautiful dinner with local products and a perfect Scottish breakfast. Colin is a terrific host!

We had a superb one night with you, the mixed platter and STP were amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the whisky porridge for breakfast. Our only criticism was the placement of the tv for the bed, we wondered if there was a reason the bed and sofa weren’t swapped over as you get a lovely view from the sofa!

Try lunch at the Croft Inn in Glenlivet, a visit to Ballindalloch castle or the beautiful Moray coast. Cardhu distillery does very entertaining tours.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cardhu. Colin’s hospitality was first class. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were excellent and so were the boards we shared for dinner. The setting was delightful and we enjoyed some sunny afternoons in the immaculate garden. Highly recommended.

Tips:

We walked to the Cardhu distillery and the Knockando Woollen Mill from Cardu House. The distillery was excellent and the mill was a fascinating insight into the local wool and weaving industry. It was very old style and pre Industrial Revolution. Nice cafe and gift shop too. There is no dining in walking distance from the house so we would recommend rebooking restaurants if you want to be sure of a nice dinner.

Highly recommend - a lovely, comfortable old house in the Speyside countryside, just a few minutes walk from the Cardhu Whisky Distillery which offers one of the most informative tours, and a working woolen mill. Some of the other, better-known distilleries, and fine pubs and restaurants and fishing spots, are within a short drive. Our hosts, Colin and Sarah, were charming and full of good advice and the breakfasts superb. We didn’t try the in-house dinner but I’m sure it would have been just as good. Love, love, loved our stay.

Tips:

Our favourites - the Cardhu Whisky Distillery tour, the Glenfiddich Distillery Lounge for a high-end stop, country walks, the Highlander Inn and the 1881 restaurant, and 3 Bags Wool shop in Aberlour, if you’re a knitter - the selection of inexpensive wool is amazing.

Breakfasts are delicious with lots of homemade touches. The setting is peaceful and serene. The Cardhu distillery is walking distance, but but it is a 15 minute drive to the nearest town for dinner. Do try the platters for 2 they offer on weeknights for dinner - exceptional!! Highly recommend :).

Colin & Sarah are wonderful hosts. The house is beautiful, and they made us very comfortable. The food was excellent. Both the included breakfast and the fish platter we chose for our evening meal (extra charge and well worth it).

Tips:

The house is not close to much so dinner there was a good idea. It is an easy walk to the Cardhu Distillery. We parked at the house and walked to the distillery and back.

Wonderful country manor house. Off the beaten path, quiet, excellent breakfast and knowledgeable staff to guide you on planning your Speyside visit.

Tips:

Country roads are small, recommend arriving before dark. Macallan is an incredible experience, first class all the way, recommend booking an experience and making a reservation for lunch. Cardhu distillery is within walking distance and also has a nice car park; small distillery but good experience if you want to understand the basics of making whiskey (also one of the main ingredients for the blended Johnnie Walker brand). Highlander inn is just down the road and a good stop for dinner with a huge selection of whisky (make a reservation as it is small and quite busy with locals).

We arrived late at night to check in and were welcomed in the warmest possible way. Colin is the most welcoming host ever, always concerned that everything was ok with us, and we appreciated that very much. The stay was short but very comfortable and relaxing. The countryside surroundings are absolutely enchanting. The homemade breakfast was delicious, and once again Colin and his wife went out of their way to accommodate our requests. If one day we return to Scotland we would like to repeat the stay, but longer if possible. Couldn't recommend a stay at Cardhu Country House more highly!!

Colin said he was not a master chef, but I doubt it. The location was peaceful as much as it was beautiful. I wanted to hear more about the history of the house and area. I will recommend this place to friends, but not too many, because I want to make sure there is room for me next time. Thank you Colin and Sarah for a wonderful stay. I am saddened it was for such a short stay.

We loved our stay at Cardhu House! Colin and Sara made us feel as if we were part of their family. Their home is clean and well maintained in a beautiful area. The "parlor" off the dining area made a great gathering space after dinner to meet new friends and share stories. We truly didn't want to leave at the end of our 2-night stay. The location in whiskey country offers many side trip options.

Tips:

Be sure to pre-book your distillery tours before you arrive as they may not have space for walk ins.

Everything was top notch. The homemade meals were superb, our room was quiet, nicely appointed and very clean - they have USB ports in the outlets! The setting was the icing on the cake. Tremendous views, loved the birds, a sense of community abounds.

Tips:

This hidden jewel is a Speyside treasure. The owners are gracious, engaging, and good people. You don't need a restaurant during your staying, dinner and breakfast are fantastic. A short walk to Cardu Distillery makes it convenient if you book tours there. Many other distilleries within a 5-10 minute drive.

Unser Aufenthalt bei Collin und Sarah im Cardhu Country House war in jeder Hinsicht außergewöhnlich und ließ keine Wünsche offen: Die gesamte Unterkunft ist auf einem gepflegten Grundstück sehr schön gelegen, neben einer alten Friedhofsanlage, sehr sauber und stilvoll und liebevoll eingerichtet, mit hohen, ästhetischen und auf den Service bezogenen Standards. Ausgesprochen schönes, helles Zimmer, geräumiges Bad, und ein traumhaft komfortables Bett, in dem wir drei Nächte wunderbar geschlafen haben (und das wir immer noch vermissen). Collin und Sarah haben wir als sehr offene, freundliche und engagierte Gastgeber erlebt, die uns an unserem Ankunftsabend mit einer vorzüglichen Fisch- beziehungsweise Fleischplatte und jeden Morgen mit einem leckeren Frühstück verwöhnt haben (unsere Favoriten: Sarahs Whisky-Porridge und das gut belegte Buttie). Sie haben uns mit ihren kenntnisreichen Empfehlungen sehr geholfen, unsere Ausflüge in die Umgebung zu planen und aus den vielen Möglichkeiten auszuwählen (unbedingt empfehlenswert: die Küstenwanderung zwischen Hopeman und Lossiemouth). Danke an Sarah und Collin für drei wunderschöne Tage, wir kommen gerne wieder!

Tips:

The area is rural and a magnet for malt whisky lovers. Close to Cardhu, Tomdhu and The Macallan. Didn’t see a lot of police patrolling but have a designated driver to be on the safe side!! A beautiful part of Scotland.

Beautifully maintained country house in heart of Speyside whiskey region. Very close to Cardhu & Macallans distilleries. Gracious and helpful hosts. Lovely room, comfortable, large bed with good quality linens. Excellent selection for breakfast and perfectly prepared. Would highly recommend!

Tips:

Choice of distillery tours. Dinner at the Copper Pot Pub at the Craigellachie Hotel (15 min drive) was very good. But main recommendation is to take hosts offer up to dine at the B&B - they prepare a gourmet quality 3 course meal that I feel equals or surpasses the best in the area.

Cardhu Country House is set in a peaceful and beautiful part of Scotland. The house is a bright airy period property, immaculately clean and decorated to a high standard. From checking in, through dinner and breakfast, Dave and Val are very attentive and keen to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction (which it was). We were on a 2 night mini-break and found the time extremely relaxing with excellent food, and service. Highly recommend.

Tips:

Dinner & Breakfast are to a very high standard, and we can highly recommend the dinners, that would put many a "starred" restaurant to shame. Take your own wine for the table. Glasses are provided and no corkage is charged. Dave and Val adapted the menu with me being Coeliac which was much appreciated.
