  • Beautiful Elgin

    We really enjoyed our stay at Cheverells Farm Cottages. Beautifully decorated, and well equipped with a lovely view as well! We had never been to Elgin, and the lovely apple trees dripping with apples, the Railway market, all added to a wonderful weekend.

  • Beautifully Equipped, Peaceful Space

    Gorgeous and thoughtfully decorated farm cottage, with everything you need for comfort, and lots more. The fireplace was an absolute winner on a cold and stormy night. Perfect accompaniment provided by a bottle of local wine. The hosts communicated excellently and arrangements were effortless.
