Newbold House is a 19th-century Victorian building now run on sustainable principles. We are a well-being centre, B&B and workshop venue, surrounded by 7 acres of beautiful grounds including a large organic veg garden. There are 7 rooms – singles, twins and two rooms able to accommodate up to 5 beds for families or friends sharing. All rooms have their own hand basin, are a good size and have lovely views of the surrounding gardens and woods. There is free Wi-Fi access throughout the house. Our house, grounds and surrounding countryside are a great place to re-connect with yourself and with nature. We are based on the outskirts of Forres, in the gorgeous region of Moray Speyside and just 27 miles east of Inverness. A mere 6 miles away is Findhorn Bay, part of a coastline recently voted as one of the world’s best by National Geographic, great for boat trips and a top seal-spotting location.

Second year I have attended the winter retreat run in the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nath Hanh at Newbold - it was so appropriate as a setting. Very comfortable but none of the pretentious frills and set in the most wonderful grounds. Apple juice every morning from their own orchard and simple food very well presented. The wonderfully restful and supportive new team running the place made our stay completely welcome. I especially enjoyed walking out the back gate into the big pine forest behind and losing myself in the nature.

Spent just one night here at Newbold House, which was relaxed and quiet. Wonderful garden and great food. Very grateful to them for finding a room to put me up at quite short notice. Walking distance to centre of Forres.

Having visited two years before, I returned for a dose of R&R and wasn't disappointed. a lot quieter than it had been previously but still a true little retreat. I enjoyed taking part in the taize, organising a massage, walking around the grounds, having a delicious hearty vegetarian dinner, great variety of breakfast foods and lovely views. The beds are also very comfortable and the staff helpful. It was a little cold on the first night but that had been sorted by the second and so we were nice and toasty. The shared bathrooms were lovely and roomy and the showers powerful and hot. I just wish it wasn't so far from South England! I hope it keeps going as it's a really hidden gem in Scotland.

Four friends stayed for one night sharing two rooms. My room was enormous, double aspect windows onto beautiful gardens, high ceilings. Whole house was warm cosy & peaceful. The smell of essential oil, which I love, probably geranium, greeted us as we went upstairs. Food is delicious, all guests & staff lovely, I had a bath in the free standing old style bath, what a relaxing treat to lie back and look out the window onto the trees. We were lucky to be staying when Kaela Rowan had been booked to play for the evening. Such a treat to wander downstairs to listen to the exquisite trio. The next morning I was due to fly out, no taxi could be found so very kindly member of staff Paul drove me to airport. Would definitely recommend and come back next time I visit the Highlands.

We spent 4 wonderful days at Newbold House. We were warmly welcomed by Andrew, Blue and other staff and volunteers. Our bedroom was large, light and comfortable. Meals were delicious and healthy. The productive walled garden and woodland area were a delight. It was a pleasure to share meals with interesting people: both the staff/volunteers and other guests who were doing a course.
