The most awesome facility at your disposal during a stay at ACE Hideaways is your natural surrounding. We are nestled into a woodland high above the River Findhorn in which all manner of nature – from birds to deer and even red squirrels – has made its home. As such we are in a very rural location and some facilities tend to the eco-minded and functional.
Camping & Glamping Facilities:
- Drinking Water is from our own private supply taken from the (council-tested) tap. The distance to each tap depends on which spot you’ve chosen to sleep at.
- There are loos and showers by Reception for all to use.
- The Outdoor Camp Kitchen has a huge table and log stools (made from a single tree that had fallen beside the river just below Ace), sink and two-ring gas camp cooker for all campers to share and enjoy. Each shepherd’s hut has its own gas ring stove.
- Camp fires are Welcome! Each bell tent and shepherd’s hut has a log burning stove inside to keep you toasty all night and its own designated fire pit outside. There is a communal fire pit near camp kitchen so everyone at ACE can enjoy a proper camp fire. A sack of excellent quality, locally-sourced, seasoned hardwood logs can be bought from Reception.
- ACE Reception Shop has some basic supplies such as drinks, chocolate bars and camp essentials.
