Stay on the grounds of the 10,000-acre Dallas Estate, in a traditional manor home that's steeped in charm. Enjoy vast surrounding gardens with boating and fishing on your very doorstep.

Go boating, play tennis or arrange a salmon fishing trip on the River Lossie from this splendid holiday home on the Dallas Estate near Forres, Moray. Dating back to the 17th century, the impressive property, which sleeps 12 guests in seven bedrooms, is set in surroundings once home to the family of George Mifflin Dallas, founder of the Texan city. Indulge in the grandeur of the great house itself, with its ornate period features. Spread out and relax in its inviting rooms and celebrate your special occasions in style.


Experience the opulence of this magnificent property from the moment you enter its reception hall, which like the rest of the house is adorned with antique items. Congregate in your sumptuous lounge before a roaring open fire: play games together, browse the bookshelves and pick out a tune or two on the grand piano. Spill into the west-facing conservatory to soak up the scenery or wander into the games room to watch TV or play table tennis. Cook together at the Aga in your kitchen/diner, then opt to either eat in here as you look out over the rose garden or relish the history and formality of the elegant dining room. Find a laundry room, pantry and two WCs on the ground floor too. Make your way up to the first floor of this imposing property to choose between seven beautiful bedrooms. Your master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and there are three additional bathrooms and a shower room on this level. Enjoy the exquisite formal gardens at the house whenever the weather permits. Play tennis on the estate’s court, set up a game of croquet or watch the children on the trampoline. You can even grab a lifejacket and take a boat out onto the pond.

Yards from the gushing River Lossie, embraced by forested glens and only 12 miles from the mouth of the River Findhorn and the formidable North Sea, there is no end of opportunities for adventure lovers here. Perfectly suited to those looking to absorb the peace and quiet and make the most of the glorious landscapes all around, you won't have to venture far to feel a cool breeze running through your hair and breathe in the pure, clean air of this remote part of Scotland.

If you would like to visit the area's picture-perfect beaches, a trip to the Moray Coast is a must. 16 miles away, you will arrive at Lossiemouth, dubbed ‘the jewel of the Moray Firth'. Great for sailors and golf fans as well as nature lovers, the town flaunts two pristine sandy beaches backed by a ridge of dunes and overlooked by rolling countryside; a true haven. Regularly visited by passing whales and dolphins out at sea, the charming fishing village of Burghead (15 miles) is also worth your time; visit Burghead Visitor Centre to learn about local history from 400AD to the present day.

To stock up on supplies, Elgin and Forres are great places to dip in and out of. Only 11 miles away, Elgin sits happily within the world-famous whisky region of Scotland and is home to a number of distilleries, including Glen Moray, Gordon & MacPhail and Glen Elgin. A little closer is Forres (8 miles), known for its art scene and castle.

The facilities including tennis, trampoline for mixed age group are great. The pond ( life jackets provided) is good fun and children aged 8-12 learnt to row, but they do need supervision on trampoline and near pond which is quite far from the house so not an immediate hazard. Hopeman beach beyond Elgin offers sand, rock pools, dunes and swimming (Read morewetsuits a must). A walk along the coastal path brings you to secret secluded bay. Castles, ruined and inhabited, and beautiful gardens to visit. Hide

We had a simply lovely holiday in this beautifully presented historical home. It is close to many places of historical interest as well as picturesque beaches. Much appreciation is due to Jean the housekeeper and Frances the cook, who have added so much to our holiday.
