North Lodge & River Cabin

Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

Gorgeous Georgian House with River Cabin, hot tub and much more located on the bank of the River Dye near Bachory.

Deep within Aberdeenshire, not far from the Cairngorms National Park you can discover this beautiful Georgian house with River Cabin access. Perfect for families and friends looking to enjoy a little style, plus some outdoor living and the obligatory hot tub!

North Lodge was originally built in the late 1890's and has been completely refurbished. It now houses a gorgeous modern property with feature artwork, colourful walls, fully equipped kitchen and central heating all set deep within a forest location. There are 2 king size bedrooms and 2 singles plus a large sitting room with open fire. Follow the river path and you will discover the River Cabin, home to all your entertainment needs with everything from a Big Green Egg BBQ to wild swimming gear plus of course your riverside wood fired hot tub! 

Locally there is plenty to do, although dragging yourself away from the property of your choice and the bubbles of the hot tub may be a hardship! If you chose to venture out be sure to wear your hiking boots as there are a number of beautiful walks in the area or maybe try your hand at canoeing on the River Dye. If you prefer a more sedate way of life then a trip to Craigievar Castle for a guided tour and stroll around the gardens may be more your cup of tea. 

Why not visit the local BYOB Glen Dye Arms, with its ancient bar and record player. Or book a session in the new wood-fired sauna! The perfect way to end a busy day exploring the local area!
