A glass porch links your baby barrel B&B room with the rest of our house. The kitchen doors will be open during sunny days to let the warmth in, so you’ll have a nice open view outside during breakfast.
Our own two storey house is a large whisky barrel and is part of a residential cluster of five barrel houses. Looking out the windows and walking around you cannot avoid the feeling of being a hobbit in the Shire.
Our little borough lies at the edge of the Park, the Community and Ecovillage in Findhorn, with direct access to the surrounding woods and dunes. It will take you about 10 minutes to walk to the beach.
All destinations in the Park itself are within easy walking distance. There’s a lot to see and do in our community: the Universal Hall, Community Centre, Phoenix Shop and Cafe, Visitors Centre, Living Machine, Moray Art Centre, sanctuaries and the original garden. See the Findhorn Foundation website for more information.
The Park is located at the edge of the pittoresque fishing village of Findhorn. It takes about 20 minutes to reach its centre, with a little marina, a small supermarket and post office, the Bakehouse Cafe and two inns, the Kimberley and the Crown & Anchor.
The nearest larger town of Forres is about 5 miles away. It has a high street with shops and banks, supermarkets, a swimming pool and a railway station.
If you’re visiting Moray on the Malt Whisky Trail, Forres also boasts two distilleries, the Benromach Distillery and the Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery.
Inverness lies 26 miles to the west and Aberdeen 75 miles to the east. Both cities have airports.
See the Findhorn Foundation website for information on how to get here.
