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.
