Spending the night in our barrel will make you feel like a hobbit living in the Shire. It can be used as a single or twin room. It's located in the heart of the Findhorn Community and Ecovillage, with the beach only 10 minutes walk away.

The space

You will have your own entrance through the front porch, a lush greenhouse with plants and flowers. Your B&B room is round (3.5 m or 11’6″ across) and has a warm and cosy wooden interior.

The barrel contains an upper and a lower single bed. Due to the roundness of the room the beds do not have a rectangular shape, so there will be slightly less space than you’re used to, and large people would probably be a bit uncomfortable in the lower single bed. You’ll have to climb a little ladder to get into the good-sized upper bed. The beds have memory foam mattresses, silk duvets and cotton linen.

There are cupboards, a curving desk and some comfy chairs for your convenience.

Guest access

The baby barrel doesn’t have its own en-suite bathroom, so we’ll share our bathroom with you. It has a washbasin, a shower and on request you could even make use of our bathtub. Other than the included breakfast, use of our kitchen is not possible .

Interaction with guests

We live in the same house and work from home. Interaction will mostly be limited to receiving you upon arrival and serving an organic vegetarian breakfast in our cosy kitchen in the morning.

We may be able to greet you in your native language. Shanti can speak English, German, Dutch and Italian and Ariane can speak Scottish with a New York City accent. :-)

Other things to note

In your room you will find a filtered water jug, a kettle to boil water and an assortment of teabags and instant coffee powders to make a hot drink.

Free WiFi is available in your room and a screen and media player to watch movies on.

The Whiskey Barrels provide a exquisite experience. Shanti & Ariane are very organized, providing maps for easy navigation. They knew the area very well and are excellent resources. Their bed is memory foam and very comfortable, and the duvet is made of silk... I slept brilliantly! :) Findhorn is a peaceful magical wondrous place! :)
