Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Inverness - Bellfield Cottage
Beautiful late Victorian house with open fires and an AGA
This comfortable family house sits in an elevated and secluded position close to Inverness town centre. Surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and flowering bushes, the private garden offers panoramic views over Inverness to the hills beyond. Just 5 minutes walk from Inverness town centre, Eden Court theatre, Bellfield Park and the lovely Ness Islands.
This spacious house is furnished with the emphasis on comfort and enjoyment. The open plan kitchen and dining room with open fire is the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring. While your meal is simmering on the AGA, wander outside to the garden to enjoy the glorious views. Comfort is continued in the cosy sitting room, also with open fire; here you can round off the day with a cup of tea or a whisky before retiring to the lovely comfortable bedrooms.
The house comes with all “mod cons”: gas central heating, free wi-fi, Sonos multi-room sound system and two widescreen TVs with PVR, Blu-ray and DVD players (and a wireless for the Archers!). There is also a cupboard full of board games and shelves full of books and DVDs.

Graham grew up in Inverness before leaving to go to University in Edinburgh in 1986. He has always been extremely fond of Inverness and the Highlands and has retained close connections to the town (now a city). He has many relatives and friends living locally and gets back as often as he can, especially in the football season as he and his father are long-standing season ticket holders at Inverness Caley Thistle.
Graham purchased this house in 2006
Why Graham chose Inverness
Graham bought Bellfield Cottage back in 2006, initially for his own use when visiting friends and family. Since 2009, he has let the house out to visitors. It is a very busy rental property, fully booked every summer, Christmas and New Year and popular in the autumn and spring with return guests, including many performers at the local Eden Court theatre.
In 2012, Graham bought Kinmylies Farmhouse, which had long been one of his favourite properties in Inverness. Thsi is also now available to rent. (see http://www.homeaway.co.uk/p1091419)
Graham's mother, Margaret, looks after both of his rental properties and delights in meeting guests from all parts of the world.
What makes this house unique
It took me 7 years of searching to find my dream home from home. Bellfield Cottage is one of just 4 houses cut into the steep bank that runs through Inverness parallel to the river. The cottage is secluded enough to afford guests complete privacy, yet with wonderful views and only a short walk to the town centre.
