About Our Chalet

The Chalet, Holidays for All is situated on a working farm on the East coast of Scotland.  It began as an idea for a holiday chalet, but this quickly grew into an idea for a chalet to accommodate people with disabilities so everyone can access the countryside.  James and Kay Gilchrist applied for a farm diversification grant from Tyne Esk Leader and were overwhelmed at the amount of support they received to get this project on the market. 

They were awarded a 50% grant which has allowed them to design and build their chalet to meet the needs of guests who struggle to find holiday accommodation with excellent facilities in a beautiful setting.  James and Kay want their guests to have a relaxing holiday where they can enjoy the countryside and experience daily life on the farm.
