Family Getaways at Newbold offer a perfect way to spend quality time together in a beautiful outdoor setting in the Scottish Highlands. We offer experiences which help children and adults alike reconnect to the natural world and to explore the beautiful scenery, wildlife and attractions of the Moray Firth Coast.
Want to spend quality time as a family away from the busyness of everyday life. Why not enjoy a walk in the forest together, play outdoor games in the 7 acres of land or snuggle up with a hot chocolate and watch your favourite family movie together in the quiet countryside. Newbold House and the neighbouring town of Forres has it all. The surrounding woodlands and quaint town of Forres is a perfect setting to spend quality time as a family enjoying the beautiful forests and beaches. We’ve found that it’s often the simple things – playing in woodland, swimming in the river, wild picnics and campfires, that make family holidays enjoyable, fun and and engaging.
Forres and Newbold House is surrounded by wildlife from the Bees, Ducks, Butterflies and chickens on site; the squirrels, pine martins and birdlife in our surrounding woodland to the award winning coastline (top rated by national geographic) where seals, dolphins and whales can be seen frequently. The area is perfect for connecting to nature, whether this is through learning about the local seal and dolphin populations, or helping to protect bees and butterflies in our 7 acres of organic grounds; its a perfect way to experience the biodiversity and ecosystems of the Highlands of Scotland.
There are plenty of opportunities for ‘you’ time as well, like relaxing in the cosy lounge or Newbold’s beautiful Victorian conservatory, or treating yourself to a massage or yoga lesson or a guided walk in nature and Newbold. This family break is the perfect time to detox from the tablets, phones and laptops that can consume our daily lives and reconnect to our surroundings and to one another. Although we offer Wifi, the family getaway is perfect opportunity to switch off from the stresses and work associated with technology and just relax.
