John & Irene
Clune House is at the quieter end of Newtonmore Main Street. A delightful Victorian building, carefully restored & modernised, it offers everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Friendly, comfortable, adults-only and dog-friendly, at our B&B single guests feel really at home. We also encourage you to set aside your phone & tablet to enjoy your fellow guests’ company. Our 3 spacious, centrally heated bedrooms are light & airy, have really comfortable beds, quality bed linen, a large flat screen TV, comfy chairs, WiFi, ample wardrobe space, a dressing table and mirror, hairdryer and luxurious robes. Your refreshment tray has teas, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits & mineral waters. All have a modern en-suite shower & WC, fluffy towels, quality Scottish toiletries and a comfy stool. Served around the breakfast table from 8 to 9 am, Irene’s super breakfasts offer a wide choice cooked or continental items, all freshly prepared. We cater for special diets and don’t ask you to order the night before!! We have a comfortable guest lounge, a peaceful back garden with outdoor furniture and there's ample off-road parking. Whenever you come, we’ll be delighted to meet you.
Hello. We’re John & Irene England – a great name to have here in Scotland! We’ve lived in the Highlands since 2000, successfully running a small hotel near Aviemore, then a Guest House not far from here. Over the years we’ve built up a loyal following of regular guests, we are pleased and proud to say. They say, though, that you should “Never get too busy making a living that you forget to make a life”. So we recently sold the Guest House and “right sized” here to Clune House, a really nice smaller B&B which we’ll run just as professionally but with a bit more time for our hobbies. Irene loves hill walking & skiing – she has lots of experience in both. She’s also just got back into tennis and she still loves cooking – great news when it comes to your breakfasts. John enjoys Rugby Union, supporting Leicester Tigers and England, cycling, getting out whenever he can, and reading– nothing too posh, mind you. We both love to travel – Australia, India, China, New Zealand, Spain, Canada & Alaska have all been recent destinations. We never forget, though, that ours is a "people" business. Even after almost 20 years, we simply love meeting & looking after our guests.
Newtonmore is a delightful, friendly, traditional village in the heart of the Highlands. Offering visitors a warm welcome, it is an ideal location from which you can explore the many attractions in the local area and in the Cairngorms National Park. The village itself holds a lot of things to see and do. You can, for example, spend an afternoon, indeed, a whole day, at our excellent Highland Folk Museum, a living museum you can learn how folk have lived here over the centuries. There’s also the super Clan MacPherson museum for interesting information about our local Clan and its history. You can savour the peace, quiet & tremendous views walking the 10 km circular Wildcat Trail or simply stroll round the village, enjoying the unique Wildcat Experience, seeing just how many of our resident, individually decorated, wildcats you can spot! Newtonmore also has a good choice of places for a bite to eat, a drink or a cup of coffee or tea, a sandwich or a cake. You’ll not need to go anywhere else. However, just up the road is the village of Kingussie, capital of Ancient Badenoch and, a little further north, the town of Aviemore with its even wider choice of shops and eateries.
