Beautiful House, stunning setting, grounds not totally secure for dogs HOWEVER there is an amazing heated kennel set up with grass and is totally secure. Near to Co-Op and only 10 mins from small town.

We had a lovely long weekend at Shethin house. The property is well equipped with everything you need and more. Located minutes from Haddo House. There was plenty of room for our family and we are already looking to book for a week next year. The hosts were lovely and arranging entry/exit was a breeze. Thanks again for your hospitality!
