Is there ever another dreamy place than this idyllic farm stay? Maddy hosts this one-bedroom, four-person home that is on the Highland Council and is almost off-the-grid. It is tucked in the 62-acre (25-hectare) land named Corry Meadow. The space that the bedroom shares with the living area may be snug, but the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and door make up for it! The Scottish Highlands is like a painting that came to life when you stay here. Featured inside are the modest kitchen and the shower. Do note that this place is not suitable for toddlers and other young children due to the open-fire and off-grid shower.
