Quail Cottage

Quail Cottage is named after the delightful common quail, a small ground-nesting game bird, found in the areas around the cottage.

The self catering cottage is gloriously, luxuriantly comfortable, intimate, beautifully decorated and furnished. Built from hand hewn sandstone blocks, barn style with high beamed ceiling, tin roof & cement painted floors. The combustion wood burning fire, king size bed dressed in beautiful percale linen with a big cosy duvet & heated blanket are ideal for chilly Highland winters.The open plan spaciousness, beautiful pampering bath and enclosed sandstone shower and toilet, a fully equipped kitchen, a weber braai on the patio-with-a-view, this all comes together to define this awesome dwelling place for just two people in quietness, space and luxury.

The cottage is serviced daily and there is ample parking behind the cottage. Wi-Fi is available at the reception area at Dassie House.
