Property Type: 
Luxurious townhouse sleeping 24 with hot tub and games room for celebration weekends, families and girls getaways near Aberdeen

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Gatsby, Torphins, Banchory, Aberdeenshire, sleeps 2-24 in bedrooms.

The Gatsby is a spacious and luxurious Victorian townhouse spread over 3 floors and sleeping up to 24 comfortably, making this a fantastic venue for getting large groups of friends together for the weekend, arranging a multi-generational family reunion or for celebrating a special occasion in style.

The house offers several large social spaces, with a huge dining room able to seat the entire group together for special celebration dinners. There are a number of sitting areas, ranging from the more formal drawing room with a grand piano and open fire, to a seating area in the sociable kitchen, and of course the den or games room for evening entertainment for all ages.

Upstairs are 11 bedrooms offering a good mix of kings, doubles, twins and triple rooms, many with en suite bathrooms and most very spacious and with large windows allowing in plenty of light.

Outside the entertaining theme continues, with a decked area next to the kitchen, perfect for al fresco dining. There are picnic benches on the large lawns, and a charcoal barbecue - a great option for a more relaxed group meal. And there's a 7 seater hot tub in the garden too, for star gazing and enjoying a soak after a busy day.

If your group would like a special occasion catered, or if you just want to enjoy some downtime without having to take on the cooking, we have a number of partners able to provide a wide range of options. Choose from an informal barbecue or hog roast, pizzas, Indian cuisine or fine Scottish dining. We can also arrange a mobile bar or cocktail experience, and how about a silent disco to really get the party going! And for eating out there's plenty of choice in the area too.

The Gatsby is situated between Aberdeen by the east coast and the Cairngorms National Park. So whether your group prefers urban or cultural experiences (with a huge number of castles to visit), enjoys the seaside or would like to get involved in the many outdoor activities available in the Cairngorms or play a round of golf on one of many courses, there's something for everyone within easy reach.
