Cottage of the Week – Skene House Cottage

A695869

Skene House Cottage. Property ref: 29020

Not only does this unique holiday property form an annexe of the stunning Skene Castle (a privately owned property in peaceful seclusion, west of Aberdeen) but it’s also part of the cottages4you Green Scheme, which promotes properties that offer environmentally friendly features!

We’ve established our Green Cottages scheme by identifying holiday cottages where the owners have taken extra steps to be kinder to the environment whilst remaining completely warm and comfortable. This includes looking at the impact on the environment of each cottage with regards to energy, pollution, information, water, wildlife and landscape. Property owners may also provide information about local facilities and car-free days out whilst we provide practical advice on how to make small improvements for a greener future.

We think you’ll agree that whilst Skene House offers a wonderfully ‘green’ holiday experience, no compromises have been made in offering complete comfort, warmth and relaxation for holidaymakers. Of course, the best way would be to find out for yourself! Find more info and make a booking on the property listing on cottages4you. Find more info on The Green Scheme.

Cottage of the Week – Little Thatchings, Oxfordshire

Our new featured property is located in the pretty little village of Warborough in Oxford, perhaps better known to TV viewers as the filming location for Midsomer Murders. Thankfully, real life in Warborough is far more relaxing (and safer!) than its portrayal on screen, which should allow you plenty of opportunity to explore and enjoy one of the UK’s most stunningly scenic regions.

The property itself isn’t short of beauty and tranquility. Nestled in its own garden just off the village green with secret seating areas and a small orchard, it has been delightfully furnished in ‘Arts and Crafts’ style with original beams (some originating from ships of the Spanish Armada which were broken up at The Wharf just down the road) and many more attractive features.

You’re also perfectly located to enjoy a range of quintessentially English locations and activities including Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Henley, Windsor, Stratford, The Cotswolds and London with numerous gastro pubs, restaurants, markets and antique shops in the surrounding area.
