The Lazy Duck Homestead

A luxury eco cabin in the heart of Lazy Duck. Come and stay in our home from home in the Cairngorms National Park. “Thank you for a perfect stay in this wonderful, magical place. It has been the perfect balance of slow outdoor living amongst nature with every home comfort. We will be back for sure.” Anna & David, February 2022 Soak up the morning sun from the verandah while feeding your friendly feathered neighbours, a flock of hens who cluck and scratch for your attention. Forest bathe in your hammock as deer peep through the woods and red squirrels dart to and fro. Enjoy seasonal produce from our polytunnel and freshly laid eggs. When the sun goes down, cook, eat, drink and chat until the stars come out.

Such a cozy and relaxed part of the world! Thank you for the warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere. We love what you have created.

Your neighbours are a friendly flock of Aylesbury ducks who welcome attention when you choose to feed them from your veranda. Stretch out on the veranda in the morning sun to sound of the stream, delight in the ducks going about their business.
