  The Detail...

The Dairy at Denend is a truly unique experience, based on a 1920s mobile milking system, and sits in the UKs biggest National Park. The property makes use of retro and stylish interior design, all while surrounded by the beautiful Aberdeenshire countryside.

Crafted by the creative team at Boutique Farm Bothies, this fresh take on a cabin in the woods sleeps four guests. Upon arrival, those staying are greeted by its impressive design with a curved tin roof and expansive decked area.

Inside the cosy interior has been cleverly arranged to fit in all the essentials. A comfy sofa and armchairs sit in front of the log burning stove - with a hob on top - and look out through floor-to-ceiling windows onto fantastic views of this stunning corner of Scotland. The well equipped kitchen has a wood burning range cooker with hob and oven, along with a fridge/freezer. A vintage larder cupboard has been updated and is now home to a cocktail bar, while there is also a reproduction of a Dansette record player with bluetooth connection.

Also on the first floor is the bathroom with its indulgent copper bathtub which allows you to enjoy a relaxing soak after a day exploring. Upstairs are the two bedrooms, with one having a king-size double bed and the other having double bunks. Both also have great views from uniquely curved windows.

Outside, the wraparound deck is the perfect place to leave muddy boots after a day out and about. This space is also an ideal spot to sit back and relax with a morning coffee or an evening tipple. Further tranquillity is offered by a hammock and the Vulcanus fire - so guests can stay out and keep warm late into the evening. Finally, the ultimate luxury is provided by a private hot tub, which has been designed to look like a milk tank and has plenty of room for four people.

There is lots to do for those who want to get out and about as well, with the spectacular Cairngorms and all its many hiking trails right on the doorstep. The amazing Aberdeenshire coast is close by too, while for those who prefer to take things a little slower, the region is home to a number of whisky distilleries, as well as the Brewdog taproom in nearby Ellon.
