Brainley Croft House offers self catering accommodation in a wonderful rural setting. A 200 year old farm croft tastefully renovated and developed over the last 20 years by John and Mel Allan, located in a tranquil spot just outside the Aberdeenshire village of Alford.  The property is surrounded by the rolling hills of the Vale of Alford and offers a quiet getaway and a tonic for busy lives.

Close to Aberdeenshire attractions, The castle trail, Royal Deeside and the Cairngorm National Park,  the house is divided into two, the owners live on one side in the house and the original croft side is available for rent.
