Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
The Corner House is located in the centre of a private estate in Scotland amidst 15,00 acres of wild moorland, forest and flowing rivers. Once part of a collection of derelict Victorian farm buildings, it has recently been transformed by NORD, winners of the Young Architects of the Year Award. It’s now a bright and airy house with a huge sitting and dining room at its heart, enjoying stunning views through the large window. Explore the estate’s spectacular landscape by day, fire up the Big Green Egg at dinner time or enjoy a soak in the wood-fired hot tub. This is a haven for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet in the great outdoors.
Step inside The Corner House and you’ll find it packed with character. The clever combination of antique and modern furnishings and the bold use of colour creates a contemporary feel that is warm and welcoming from the first. You’ll find yourself gravitating towards the main living space, a big room flooded with natural light from the large south-facing window. Get a fire going in the log burner and put your feet up on the sofa or enjoy a meal together at the dining table while you enjoy the view.
There’s a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with washing and drying facilities. You can stock up on fresh veg in the estate’s garden, where you’re welcome to pick your own or ask for a hand. Head to the shop to purchase local produce and eggs from the Glen Dye hens. The Corner House also has its own Big Green Egg in the garden so you can cook outdoors.
There’s a wood-fired hot tub in the back yard, perfect for relaxing after a long walk exploring the estate. Opposite the shop, you’ll also find a custom-built wood-fired sauna, complete with outdoor shower. Or, if a trip to the pub is more your thing, The Glen Dye Arms is the estate’s own BYOB pub with an open fire and a beautiful old bar.
There’s so much to explore on the estate itself, you can easily avoid getting in the car at all. Head out on one of the many trails for walkers, runners and cyclists right from your front door and discover ancient woodland and wild open moorland. Fish for trout in the River Dye which flows through the estate or even hit the water in a canoe when the conditions are right. If you do fancy a day trip to explore more of the surrounding area, Balmoral, Ballater and Braemar are all close by, as are the ruins of the medieval Dunnottar Castle and the picturesque fishing village of Stonehaven.
