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.

Another enjoyable stay at the Cardhu Country House. You are made most welcome by the owners and the cooking is first class - breakfast and dinner. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. We look forward to our next visit.

Tips:

If you like visiting a distillery and tasting whisky, Cardhu distillery is a short walk away. The spectacular Macallan Estate is a 6 minute drive away. The Highlander Inn is a great spot for lunch with a substantial whisky bar. There are also plenty of local walks to enjoy.

Just the most charming, welcoming, excellent place to stay. Dave is the perfect host and Val the most wonderful chef. It feels like coming home, but having everything done for you. Our second stay. It won't be our last. Thank you!

Tips:

Cardhu is in the heart of beautiful Speyside and the Speyside way is accessible about half a mile down the hill. Obviously there are distilleries galore. Aberlour is a lovely little town with a great delicatessen and numerous cafes. There's also Ben Rhinnis if you want to go up - great views to the sea and the Cairngorms.

This was serendipitous stay for us as we had done little planning due to the weather, but it turned out to be one of the best stays in Scotland. I cannot imagine anything that could be improved.

Tips:

This stay is idealally suited to those who, like us, were visiting Spayside distilleries. While it is not in a town, it is so peaceful and quiet at night, and a beautiful dinner was provided.....much better than any restaurant, making for a very low stress and relaxing evening.

We had such a fantastic stay at the Cardhu Country House. Val and Dave are such friendly people and they will do everything to make you feel at home. We booked for dinner and we enjoyed that very much. As well as the breakfast! Unfortunately we only stayed for one night (would definitely book for more nights the next time we will be there....). The house is so beautiful and in every detail (furniture, decoration, etc) you can see the love of the owners for what they do. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The beds are the best I have slept in for a long time ;-) . We all hope to come back some time when we are in the Speyside area! Thank you Dave and Val!

Tips:

Great area for hiking, visiting some of the many whiskydistilleries and enjoying the beautiful scenery. And off course running the Dramathon whiskymarathon!

This was the best accommodation and meal I’ve had on my 2 week trip in Scotland. The room was very large and the views were stunning. Everything was immaculately clean (including the inside of the radiators - I noticed and I thank you!). The evening meal was a stand out event for me - absolutely outstanding and fantastic value - this is something not to be missed. The advice I’d have for future guests is to book for a minimum of 2 nights to properly enjoy the area and the room. I would have liked to have stayed longer. The reason I give the facility 4 instead of 5 is that there’s no sitting room with cozy couches/chairs to enjoy. The dining room is more formal than would invite a glass of wine after a day out exploring. Thank you for the warm welcome and the hospitality!

Tips:

The Cardhu distillery is just around the corner and it’s tasting room has recently been renovated very professionally. There are hairy coos on the adjacent field and the views are amazing. Within a 20 minute drive I visited a farmers market and stopped for many photos along the river. The driving is so picturesque and easy that this was a very relaxing place to be.

Porridge +++ Home made granola with Greek yoghurt and fruit great way to start the day. Loved our entire stay. Would definitely return and recommend.

We enjoyed our stay at Cardhu Country House enormously. Felt very at home. Dave and Val are excellent hosts. The room was very spacy and nicely decorated with a great bed and bathroom. Breakfast and diner in the lovely diningroom was a feast.

Tips:

Diner at Cardhu Country House was really good but if you want to eat elsewhere as a change we also enjoyed eating (the pulled pork pie) at the Mash Tun in Abelour. Having a short forest morning walk to the waterfall near Abelour Distilleries and coffee afterwards at Gatherin’s Café is also recommended. A visit to one of the local distilleries is almost a must. We enjoyed both Macallan and Cardhu.

The house is fantastically restored with modern fixtures for a comfortable stay, but with old farmhouse charm (take note of the care put into the beautiful wooden floors). Also you should take advantage of the yard and the country setting. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Tips:

Definitely make dinner reservations with the host because there is no other food available in Knockando and they are wonderful cooks. Also pre-booking a tour and tasting at Cardhu Distillery is a must (at least when we were there in August- if we had just walked in, they could not have accommodated us). And see the woolen mill.

My brother and I were traveling through France and Scotland for two weeks and the Cardhu Country House was by far the best stay of our travels! Dave and Val have a lovely home and their attention to detail and welcoming manner were top notch! It felt like staying with friends! Everything was so clean and beautiful from the ensuite bathroom with a clawfoot tub to the well manicured yard where we enjoyed a glass of wine after dinner while making new friends with the other guests of the house. And the food! Val is a wonder in the kitchen and if you have the opportunity to dine there do not miss it! My favorite part of traveling is by far enjoying new and exciting food and Val could hold her own with any of the top restaurants I have had the pleasure of patronizing! I have honestly spent the last couple of weeks since I've been home trying to recreate her Whiskey porridge lol! Overall this is just such a lovely and relaxing place to get away and I highly recommend it! Thanks again Dave and Val for hosting us! I will be back!!! Hope Young

To go by the famous old train from Dufftown to Keith was one of the highlights.

Excellent in every way — location, home, grounds, rooms, staff, breakfast.

Tips:

We enjoyed Elgin Cathedral, Pluscarden Abbey (near Elgin), Balvenie Castle, the Knockando woolen mill, the bridges at Craigellachie and Abelour, the towns of Abelour, Grantown, and Dufftown, and some of the smaller/independent distilleries like Glenfarclas. We had good meals at the Mash Tun, the Copper Dog, and Adaturk (great Turkish restaurant in Elgin).

A peaceful and lovely location, close to the Whisky Trail (and the Cardhu Distillery only a 5 minute walk away). Dave was so warm and welcoming, he knew all guests by name and really made us feel at home! The rooms are very cozy and quiet, a perfect stay. We also ate dinner at the house - highly recommend! The food is locally sourced, very fresh, home prepared. Im sure Dave’s cooking beats out all the local restaurants! Breakfast was excellent as well, well worth the price!

Tips:

Eat dinner at the house as well as breakfast- it’s delicious and there aren’t so many other options nearby anyways. Check out the Cardhu Distillery, and do a nice walk along the Spey.

Dave is very kind, friendly and helpful. The service from the kitchen was excellent and breakfast was always hot and cooked fresh. We also had evening meals here and these were exceptional. You take your own wine to have with your meal which is a very good idea. Everything about the house was spotlessly clean, a beautiful location with daily visitors at breakfast of red squirrels. If only I could live there myself. Perhaps you could consider providing a bottle of water in the rooms for guests, just an idea.

Tips:

Cardhu distillery. Book early for Macallan, Glenlivet, Aberlour and Ballandalloch as these were all booked up months in advance. To visit - Balmoral, Ballater, Morayvia Aircraft museum, Logie Steading, Elgin To eat - Dowans Hotel To do - plenty of walking and cycling

Would easily recommend to everyone.

Tips:

An important tip is if wanting to eat out. Should order ahead of time. We ate at the Mash Tun in Abelour. Excellent. Always full so make sure to book ahead.Had lunch one day at Sidings Cafe. Quirky and tasty. Recommend the tours at the Glenlivet and Balvenie distilleries. Also book well ahead. Especially Balvenie.
