Cardhu Country House

4.9 (100 reviews)

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.
Total rates, from Sat 30 Oct 2021, to Mon 1 Nov 2021, for 2 nights.

What a warm welcome I received at Cardhu. Dave was an attentive and friendly host throughout and always on hand without being obtrusive. Spacious, comfortable, well equipped and nicely designed accommodation in the rooms, each named after a different distillery. Excellent breakfast and evening meal with a “bring your own bottle” policy which allowed me the flexibility to try some of the whiskies foraged locally. When I was asked at the distillery where I was staying and replied Cardhu House they told me they hadn’t heard a bad word spoken about the place from all the many guests they encountered so my experience seems typical of the great stay you can expect here. I left making a note to return for longer.

Tips:

So many distilleries to choose from! Dramathon running event was highly recommended and the purpose of my visit this time.

Breakfast was excellent. A good choice ranging from cereal to the full Scottish (the haggis was particularly tasty). Dinner was beautifully cooked with fresh ingredients. The chocolate, orange and whisky dessert was a creamy triumph! Our room (Glenlivet) was clean and comfortable with a view of the red squirrels racing up and down the trees in the garden. Our hosts were charming and helpful. When we had to leave a day early because of a family emergency they could not have been more understanding. We will definitely visit again.

Another lovely visit to Cardhu Country House, for a last-minute weekend away. This time, we stayed in the “Knockando” room, which was spacious and super-comfortable. We enjoyed two delicious breakfasts, with my wife’s vegan diet graciously and well accommodated (as always).

Tips:

Local restaurants were very busy and we were glad we booked in advance. Both the Mash Tun, in Aberlour, and the Station Hotel, in Rothes, were excellent dinner venues.

Late allowed, booking in time of 4pm & early depart time of 10am. Appreciate we arrived 45 mins early, after a very long journey we were not made welcome & it was made clear to either wait outside or come back later. Not the best start.

Tips:

We visited Cardhu distillery, which was very good. No restaurants close by. Can have evening meal at Cardhu Country House, pre booking preferred. Because we received a cool reception, We decided to go to the Marsh Tun in Aberlour.

Val, Sarah and I work hard to ensure that our guests enjoy their stay at Cardhu Country House. This includes having our rooms presented as we would expect, which is illustrated by your score for cleanliness. This takes time and this is why we open our home to guests from 16.00 each day. This is clearly stated on our website, on our booking forms, on our booking confirmations, and within the welcome email that each of our guests receive. The majority of our guests travel a distance to be with us on Speyside, and the majority are able to manage their timings to suit both them and us. We do offer dinner on five nights of the week, with advance notice, but you booked bed and breakfast, which we were happy to provide, and did so, in clean and comfortable surroundings. We are sorry that this did not seem to suit you.

Tips:

We walked from the hotel to Cardhu distillery for a tour and tasting, which was excellent. We walked to Mash Tun for dinner, it was a beautiful walk along the Speyside way but did take over 2 hours so make sure you factor that in if attempting! The food and atmosphere at Mash Tun were great, they also have a huge selection of whiskey to try.

Thank you Dave and Val for making us SO welcome! Your home is the most magical place and it was a real joy to stay there. We loved the meal you cooked for us, that was exceptional and so delicious - it will stay in the memory for a long while. The rooms are so comfortable and just gorgeous, we really couldn't have asked for more. We'd love to return next time we travel to Scotland, it was such a memorable and wonderful stay - you are fantastic hosts! Thank you.

Tips:

Do try the outdoor gym just behind the guest house, that is great fun! Glenfiddich distillery is well worth a visit and Cardu distillery is walkable from the guest house. The Whiskey Line railway at Dufftown is so lovely and they have a great cafe there too which is usually open even if the line isn't. Look out for red squirrels outside in the garden at breakfast too!

Val and Dave (owners) were absolutely wonderful hosts at Cruachan Guest House, which SURPASSED our expectations for our temporary home in Morayshire. We were accommodated in the Glenlivet bedroom on the first floor, which was spacious (5x4m approximately)and high ceilinged with a beautiful autumnal view over the adjoining field (filled with parading pheasants) and a 17th century graveyard with its own patrolling red squirrel. It was soothingly peaceful. The bed was enormous (ideal for two snorers!) and the bathroom (shower & WC) was equally spacious. We chose to have dinner and breakfast and Val proved herself to be an accomplished chef who would give any surrounding restaurant chef a run for their money. In summary: a wonderfully restful comfortable stay with two consumate hosts who welcomed us into their own home. We'll be back. THANK YOU!

Tips:

Superb base for the Speyside whisky trail and don't forget to visit the local Speyside Cooperage - very interesting.

Cardhu Country House is very elegant and characterful, the rooms are large with lovely views and the bed and bathroom most spacious and comfortable. The area is beautiful! Val and David are attentive and kind hosts and when we came in after a cold and wet day walking they o lived us by putting up the heating. The food is good, traditional home cooking and served in front of a gorgeous open fire.

Tips:

David knows a lot - he can recommend good distilleries to visit as well as other things of interest such as the woollen mill just down the track on the banks of the River Spey and information on local towns. There are local walks but nothing on display which would have been helpful, however David can describe them. We stayed during a local lock-down on hospitality so opportunities were limited.

The Cardhu Country House Hotel is a delightful gem of a place. From the moment you enter the building, you step into a lovely old Manse full of original features which is beautifully furnished throughout. The bedrooms are spectacularly comfortable and the warm welcome from Dave & Val are second to none. The breakfast menu is amazing and I was lucky enough to partake of dinner for two nights and enjoyed fantastic cuisine on both occasions. This was a really great stay and I hope to be back again next year.

Tips:

I was spending the last three days of the salmon fishing season fishing on the River Spey at Aberlour. I can only surmise at the plethora of great things to see and do including visits to the numerous whiskey distilleries; the Knockando Woollen Mill; a walk along the Speyside Walk which follows the route of the old Speyside Railway linking the various whisky distilleries. Aberlour is a lovely little town and Ballindalloch Castle must be worth a visit at any time.

David and Val were excellent hosts. The house, bedroom accommodation and food offer were all first rate. Given the Covid restrictions, every effort was made to help us feel at ease. Their local knowledge was very useful to us as we came to walk locally.

Tips:

The area is very beautiful and provides many opportunities for outdoor pursuits. We walked every day along the Speyside Way or along the beautiful beaches a few miles away. We also saw people engaging in a wide range of activity: cycling, fishing, even swimming in the Moray Firth.

Very friendly welcome. Spotless accommodation and extremely comfortable. Cosy breakfasts beside the fire were a treat! Food is excellent...try the whisky and honey porridge, you won’t be disappointed! Loved watching the red squirrels and the birds in the grounds of the house. Bats and a hedgehog after dark were amazing to see too! Fabulous place to stay! Thanks for sharing your home with us!!

Tips:

The Mash Tun and the Copper Dog were excellent pubs to eat in. Food was lovely. A bit further afield along the coast just outside Nairn is the Kale Yard at Boathe House. Delicious food and due to fabulous weather sat outside in the lovely grounds. Cragganmore Distillery was great to visit. Dolphin cruise on the Moray Firth also a highlight.

This was one of the best staycations we've ever had in Scotland. Dave was incredibly welcoming and friendly throughout our stay and gave us tips on things to do. The house is stunning and the dining room is a beautiful setting to eat in. We'd strongly recommend having dinner at the house one evening as Val's cooking is phenomenal! The room was spacious, peaceful, had everything we needed and the bathroom was clean and modern. It's a great base for exploring the local areas. In the current climate of COVID-19, we felt safe with hand sanitiser available and face masks in use. We'd thoroughly recommend Cardhu Country House to others and hope to stay again in the future. Thanks again Dave and Val.

Tips:

Other than having a meal at the house one evening, we'd recommend dinner at the Dowans Hotel and the Copper Dog restaurant in the Craigellachie Hotel (be sure to check out the Telford Bridge lit up at night here). We walked Ben Rinnes and this Corbett has a steep climb but it's very rewarding when you get to the top (there is a small car park so recommend get there early otherwise you'd need to park on the verge). You can walk the Speyside Way directly from the hotel by going down to Tamdhu railway station and joining the route there, which was a nice scenic 6.2 mile walk to Aberlour.

Spectacular B&B!

Tips:

My wife and I arrived the first week in March to stay for one night as we explored through the Whiskey Region and visiting many distilleries. Dave, the host/homeowner, gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived shortly after 7pm. The house is easy to locate, very clean and spacious. We got settled in at about 9pm. Bed was very comfortable and linens were fresh and clean. Room was well lit, decor was on point and really made you feel at home. Breakfast was served in the dining room from 7:30am-9am - just a really good setting to enjoy with a hot cup of coffee. The breakfast was made to order and service by Dave was above par. My wife had the whiskey porridge and I had the Scottish classic breakfast. Both were fresh and plating was perfect (also had a yogurt parfait which was very good). Showers and rooms had everything we needed. Shampoo, body wash, well running hot water, blow dryer, hand/body towels, toilet paper etc. This country house is in very close proximity to restaurants and distilleries. Parking on the property is widely available. Landscaping is manicured and the views are quite nice. We would've loved to have stayed longer. Thanks for all of the great memories, DAVE! -Luke & Johanna

Snuggled into the countryside and down a lovely narrow country road we found a gem of a place to stay. I had high expectations from the reviews that I had read before booking, and now I add myself among the many that found Cardu Country House a pure delight. The historical home, the scenery, the very warm welcome we received from David upon arrival went into making our short stay memorable. We were a party of 5 and everyone thought our one-night stay too short. The house is a bit out of town and we wished, in hindsight, that we had made arrangements to eat there, it looked lovely. The breakfast was the best we had had on our 10-day trip around the country. Her haggis sausage with breakfast was delicious and the whisky porridge was wonderful. Everyone in my party would happily return for another stay. There is much to do in the area and David gave us some grand tips. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Tips:

If you think you will arrive late in the day I recommend taking advantage of dinner there. You'll need to let them know. We didn't and wish we had, it looked inviting.
