This was our 5th (or even 6th?) stay at Ruthven Steadings. As always, a home from home, and our 3 day stay soon extended itself to 5...
Julie and John are superb hosts, and really make you feel welcome. The rooms are very spacious and immaculately clean. The Tractor Shed is the larger of the two rooms, and the one we normally stay in. The room has a massive bed, wooden floors and beams, and a really nice, elegant bathroom (with a hefty power shower to wake you up in the morning). Every morning there is a breakfast menu to choose from, with choices ranging from apple and sultana-filled pancake served with fresh fruit, to a traditional cooked breakfast (with local venison sausages). You can have porridge, cereal, fruits, yogurts and there is always fresh home baked bread and home-made jam too.
In the room, you also have a TV and DVD player, access to books and maps, and a tea-tray stocked with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits to make sure that you have a cosy and comfortable evening after a long day out in the hills
In all honesty, the only drawback about staying here is that it spoils you - every other B+B seems second rate in comparison!
