Description

Clovenstone Lodges are luxury four bedroom lodges, a “home from home” but with the added advantage of being tucked in between two woodlands and rolling views of countryside, which is best viewed from your private hot tub or the panoramic floor to ceiling windows of the lounge and bedrooms. Built to a very high standard, these eco-friendly lodges exude quality with luxurious furnishings and decor.
Clovenstone is rural yet is less than 2 minutes from the main A96 which allows easy access to all the of the North East, Royal Deeside and to the Cairngorm National Park. The local area has a huge diversity of experiences to offer, the coast line offers a great opportunity to stroll along the dunes, watch the seals at Newburgh, Dolphin watch at Aberdeen harbour as well as a myriad of small fishing villages that pepper the coast line. Aberdeenshire boasts the most amount of castles anywhere in the UK, with 263 on your doorstep. There are 55 golf courses and 9 working distilleries again only a few miles away. Royal Deeside and the Caringorm National Park are within easy reach.

Location

Directions

Most importantly , how do we get here, firstly DO NOT follow Sat Nav as the new A90 is not on it !, also if you follow AB51 0YS you will get lost, so instead as below:

• From the South you will be travelling North on the A90, as you pass Stonehaven, you will take the new A90 to Fraserburgh /Peterhead. Do not go to Aberdeen as this will simply add another hour to your journey. From the new A90 you will after about 15-18 minutes come to the Airport junction signposted (CRAIBSTON), leave at this junction in the inside lane and go under the bridge to join the A96 ( Inverness).
After 6 miles you will pass Kintore, take the next LEFT into CLOVENSTONE. Be careful as cars are still going very fast despite a roundabout ahead. Go uphill , pass the joiners on the right, VEER to the left and CLOVENSTONE LODGES are on the first left through the Farm Gates."
