After over a year it was wonderful to spend time with all my grandchildren. We took three cottages which worked well for us all as we had an age range from 76 years to 2 months! It was child friendly and safe and we all loved the swimming pool. My 2 year old grandson went into the water for the first time. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return before too long.

All I can say about Balbinny is 'wow'. We were in no2 Balbinny Cottages which is reasonably newly done. We were taking aback when we walked in by how lovely it was; all small details had been thought of and it felt like a touch of luxury everywhere. The views from the cottage were breathtaking; everywhere you looked. Our online shop had been put away when we got there so we could just relax and enjoy the views. The pool is beautiful and we whiled away many hours in there. We also made use of the tennis courts as the owners thoughtfully had tennis rackets and balls available to use. David, one of the owners was available whenever we needed him and was very receptive and helpful. We loved every minute of our stay and we are already planning our return visit.

After having to cancel our last trip we were really looking forward to our summer trip back to Prosen. It is so relaxing and quiet, great accommodation, and this year in particular the pool was a big hit with everyone! You can book it out for 90mins at a time snd the same with the gym. In many ways I hope they carry on with this after COVID, as it was lovely to have the place to yourselves. We also made use of the tennis court and you are close to the coast and Dundee. We would highly recommend.

Very relaxing stay with excellent facilities on site, we stayed in a steading and the kitchen was great with everything you could possibly need. The furniture looked great and was also very comfy with lovely views. We were also able to get a supermarket delivery before we arrived which was very kindly put away in the kitchen making things super easy when travelling with little ones. We loved the pool and jacuzzi, didn’t get a chance to use the gym or tennis court on this occasion but would be keen to in the future. We would definitely recommend Balbinny and most likely go back!

Bit apprehensive about giving Balbinny such a bright review; booking is tricky enough as it is! The health and wellbeing facilities are excellent and the accommodation clean and modern, set within lovely countryside. A great place to unwind.
