This charming cottage looks out onto the patio which backs onto the sweeping estate grounds surrounding you, and the tree lined valleys and rolling countryside of the National Park beyond. On the ground floor there is a bespoke handcrafted kitchen with the dining area, as well as a separate spacious living room.

Nestled in a peaceful rural location, this is the perfect place to relax and take each day at your own pace. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with twin beds, both with en-suite facilities, making this ideal for small families, friends or couples looking for a romantic break.Seaton Hall has a fascinating past, the hall was named after the de Seton dynasty who resided from 1130 to 1307, and whose family made allegiances with and marriages to the Scottish Royal Family.
