Westwood is tucked neatly into beautiful surroundings of trees and a lawned garden. A babbling brook running past also adds to the tranquil setting. We are situated a few minutes walk from the village of Strichen and at the edge of the community park. The park has many winding walks, a lake where you can watch the resident swans, ducks and other wildlife and also a coffee shop(The Lodge) where you an enjoy a cup of coffee and a “fine peece”. At Westwood you can completely shut off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life by enjoying the unique swinging barrel seat, lying back on the hammock or cooking your own culinary delights on the open fire pit.
If you are feeling more energetic, we are ideally situated to visit the castle and whisky trails, fishing, walking and cycling-the Buchan and Formartine walkway goes right past Westwood- golfing, bird watching and star gazing(to name but a few!) The Hideaway is a home from home and is equipped with a kettle, toaster, microwave, TV, fridge and it even has its own en-suite wet room. So if your feeling really energetic- you could climb Mormond Hill and make a wish on the eye of the white horse!- or just want to completely chill, then The Hideaway is for you.
