Greenacre Bed and Breakfast Alness - Forest walks, bird watching, internet access
Greenacre is so named because it stands in an acre of beautiful, landscaped gardens which our visitors are invited to share.
Located between Inverness and Tain our bright and comfortable home occupies an enviable position on the border of Stittenham Wood, which can be accessed from the rear of the garden. A ten minute walk through the wood leads to the Stittenham Stones where there are superb views over the Cromarty Firth.
Our two guest bedrooms are spacious and light (4 x 6 square meters floor area) with double and single beds, both have hospitality trays, sweetie boxes, oodles of soft white towels, televisions, hairdryers and vanity units, they are separated by a landing on which is situated the well appointed bathroom.
Breakfast can be taken at a time to suit you (it's your holiday!). Our comprehensive menu includes the following, extra items are added when available and advised at the time:-
Tea/coffee, fruit juices, cereals/porridge, toast, bacon, sausage, fried bread, tomatoes, baked beans, hash browns, haggis, black pudding, eggs, Scottish pancakes and syrup.
Vegetarian meals and special dietry requirements can be arranged. This will be done in discussion with the guest to ensure their meal is as wonderful as the normal breakfast offered.
Evening meals at Greenacre are a social event with the entire household sitting together to enjoy whatever delight is on the menu for that day. The accent on food is to provide home cooked, tasty, varied menus, which are a little different from normal fare.
