Garden and grounds
Cobblestones is tucked away down a path from the cul de sac, Field of Dreams. To the front it has open views across the Field, the standing stones and benches. A path leads to the front door with beds of mature shrubs and bushes extending around most of the boundary. To the rear of the house there is a wide, wooden deck with a pergola above, that extends the house significantly providing a wonderful outdoor living space. Steps lead down to the lawn and raised vegetable beds. To the side there is a private grassy area, with a patio area laid to stone chips, 2 apple trees and a gateway covered with willow, leading to the Field. A fitted bench sits to the side of the steps leading into the dining room. The 2 wood storage sheds, a bike shed and an enclosed shed with mains electricity provide ample outdoor storage. There is also an area that can be used for parking.
Cobblestones is situated in the centre of the Field of Dreams with the Park amenities all within a few minutes’ walk.
Cobblestones is part of the Eco Village project linked to the Findhorn Foundation aiming to produce a low overall carbon footprint. A small wind farm provides a portion of the electricity needs for the community. The many programmes of the Foundation have been suspended for now but generally include meditation offerings at each of the four sanctuaries, three of which are within a 3-minute walk. The sky is big, the air is clean and the weather unusually sunny for the North of Scotland. The beach and ocean are a 20-minute walk through the woods and the dunes, or a short bike ride along the road through Findhorn Village. Transport links by air and rail are close by. Car share schemes are available locally, and the flat terrain is ideal for cycling. Two organic veg box schemes are in operation and “The Phoenix” local shop stocks a wide range of organic produce. There is a café and some small restaurants on site as well as the more widely known Universal Hall and Moray Art Centre that are hoping to resume live events and exhibitions soon.
