All aboard, for what will be an unforgettable holiday in a one of a kind house! Nethy Station is a rather brilliant conversion of what was the old village station, originally built in 1853 and decommissioned in 1963. Lovingly restored back to life in 2020, many original features remain, such as the beautiful coloured windows at the front. The builders even discovered tickets and timetables as they were renovating!

Today the lodge is luxuriously comfortable, but the fascinating history of the place is everywhere you look. As well as the endearing original features (including the old ticket hatch which is now a window!), old railway maps and photographs of the station in its heyday add to its captivating charm.

The open plan living room and kitchen was originally the Station Master’s office, and retains its wonderful stone hearth, now fitted with a modern cosy wood burning stove. The kitchen is sleek and efficient with all the contemporary appliances required by any keen cook.

The dining area and corridor leading to the bedrooms were previously the Waiting Room and the Ladies’ Waiting Room, but have now been opened up to create a light and bright space, with the same impressively high ceilings as the rest of the house. On a warm evening you can throw open the doors to what was previously the station platform. Here generations of travellers would have alighted to enjoy the fresh Highland air, in the days when holidays to Scotland by rail were the height of fashion - thanks to Queen Victoria. You can also eat outside of course, at the outdoor table under the platform awning, from where you can see south across the River Nethy towards the Spey.

All the bedrooms lead off the main corridor - a twin room, a master bedroom with ensuite shower room, another twin room with en-suite shower and a beautiful original fireplace, and lastly a cosy bunk bed room. Towards the back of the house is a large shower room, as well as a very useful utility room with a washing machine and drying space, plus there’s a drying green at the back of the house too.

Nethy Station lies on the north-west edge of the village, and is convenient for everything you’ll need in the village centre. It’s only a few minutes walk from popular Nethy House, a gorgeous little dog-friendly cafe which serves delicious home-cooked food and freshly ground coffees. Just across the road is the Spar grocery shop, and the Nethy Bridge Hotel with restaurant and bar. The lodge is also a short stroll along from Bailliefurth Farm Shop, an award-winning family-run butcher and deli.

"A fantastic stay in this special place. Loved the whole feel of it and the little touches. Our nearly 2 year old had lots of space to explore! Thank you. " May 2022

"We had a lovely time thank you and will definitely be back. The accommodation and situation was just great. It was so easy to get on walks and the field near by meant a good place for our dogs to have a run. My husband and son enjoyed the table tennis as you can see. Accommodation was ideal for the dogs with the utility room. As you know it was very wet when we were there and it was helpful to go through the utility and clean the dogs down before getting into the living area. The welcome pack was a really nice touch, always a good sign of people who care about there visitors. Already planning a return visit. " May 2021

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for having us this weekend. Nethy station – what a lovely place that is. You’ve made it so lovely. We are coming back in 2022. Thank you. " September 2021

"We had a lovely time. The accommodation was ideal for a family celebration. The table tennis went down well with the younger generation. I would be happy to recommend this property to friends." September 2021

"We had a wonderful stay at Nethy Station although we did feel slightly guilty that we had power and warmth while our family back home in Aberdeenshire were suffering from the effects of the storm! The lodge was lovely and cosy. Nice and modern after the renovation last year. " November 2021
