Luxury stay and great value for money!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Gatsby for a weekend hen party and we were so impressed by it - the size, the decor, the cleanliness. It was recently refurbished so everything was in excellent condition. The house has so much character and we really enjoyed hosting a 1920s themed party one of the evenings - the decor really lends itself to this. The weather was also fantastic so we made the most of the hot tub at the back of the house!

Alex, the owner, was so accommodating throughout the booking process. He was very quick to answer any queries and help us with any special requests.

I would highly recommend booking the Gatsby.

Unbelievable!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Gatsby is out of this world!! The pictures don’t do it justice at all, every room is decorated beautifully and well equipped, at no point did we think it was missing anything. The house is so much bigger than you think, 24 of us stayed for 3 nights and there was more than enough room for us all plus more. The owner Alex is a hero, from start to finish nothing was a bother at all.. my stupid questions included! We can’t wait to get all the family back together to come back! Thanks again!

Hen Party Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 18 other stayed at the Gatbsy in June 2018 for a hen weekend.

The house is ideal for a group of this size and the owner could not have been more accommodating. I also found property excellent value for money.

There are excellent facilities (including a table tennis table and hot tub) and the house comes with everything you might need.

Would really recommend a visit.

Perfect house created the perfect hen weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The house was large and beautifully decorated so for a hen party of 25 it was the perfect place to stay. Being in Torphins meant we had access to the local shop (for anything we forgot!) as well as able to use the pub next door for an evening meal which was very handy and the meal was lovely. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay, for a large group, in a stunning location for a long weekend.

Celebration at the Gatsby

  • 5 of 5

We hired the Gatsby for a joint celebration of our daughter’s 21st birthday and my 50th birthday. It was fabulous. Everyone had a great time. The house looked lovely in the photos but we were blown away by how spacious and grand it was in reality. There were 27 of us for 3 days and we were never short of a quiet spot or falling over each other. The dart board, table tennis and snooker tables, and hot tub kept us occupied. There are also nice walks and activities in the area for longer stays. The icing on the cake was the snowy weather we had - it and the open fire set the scene beautifully. No one wanted to leave at the end of our stay and we’d all return in a heart beat. Can’t speak highly enough of it.

Amazing place to hold a family celebration

We recently hired the Gatsby for a family celebration over a weekend. The house was stunning and ideal for such an event. It was beautifully decorated throughout and very well equipped. Alex the owner couldn’t have been more helpful. We highly recommend it.
