Just returned from a 7 night holiday at this cottage with our friends (4 x adults)
After a 10hr drive, we turned into a stunning driveway and arrived at the cottage around the rear of the main house. We had a lovely warm welcome from the owner (Sandy) and the cottage door was open and ready for us to relax! Thank you so much for the bottle of wine, milk & shortbread!!
Highly recommend ordering a Sainsbury’s food delivery - which Sandy didn’t mind and helped the driver find us!!
Cottage has 3 double bedrooms with double beds. Each room has an en-suite which was lovely. Beds were super comfy!
Kitchen is huge and extremely well stocked. Sandy & Lorraine’s garden was stunning! Croquet set up (Never played before - but have now!) Gate at the rear of garden which leads to a little walk through the forest down to the Spey river (a must!).
For us - this is the nicest village we came across! Handy petrol station round the corner, a Co-op on the high street open daily (HIGHLY recommend Mackies Haggis crisps - delish!) Gorgeous little boutiques and art shops! Bike hire the best here too (next to Co-Op)
Overall we can’t recommend this cottage enough. Would definitely return!
We can’t believe how hot the weather has been - some days reaching 30degrees! Thank you for a lovely holiday.
This place is excellent starting with the fantas tic warm welcome from the owners. It is a home from home with everything you need to hand. The location for shops and amenities couldn't be better. We couldn't have had a better holiday and will certainly be back.
A very well appointed cottage in lovely location on the edge of Grantown - a 10 minute stroll from the town centre. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and cosy just as you'd want and is a great base for exploring the local countryside. If you're tall-ish take care upstairs - some low sloping ceilings there!
A word of warning if you're bringing bikes on a roof top bike carrier - I think its remiss that this isn't mentioned or not highlighted on the cottage description but as you enter to the property area there's a leafy arch - which is supported by a solid metal frame and substantial tree branches. This arch was low enough to catch our bikes and consequently damaged to car roof and carrier, even at very low speed...
Located practically in a wood and within comfortable travel of both Inverness and Aviemore this is an ideal family accommodation. Grantown-on-Spey itself is a nice little town with several unique little craft shops 5 minutes walk away.
Just one little warning, the upstairs bedrooms suffer from a little restricted head room due to slanted roof and the floorboards are a little creaky.
However this certainly doesn't detract from overall experience. Highly recommended
Cottage looked fabulous in pictures but was even better in reality. It sits in beautiful grounds with a childrens' play area and backs onto woods which are accessed via a gate in the grounds. The 3 bedrooms are well presented and all have their own bathrooms. We loved the open plan kitchen diner and living room which meant we could all be together but in our own space. It is also very well heated which was lovely to come back to after days out. The kitchen has everything you could want with a big fridge freezer outside in a shed for beer and wine!!
Well placed for trips out and Wi-Fi for stays in. Our welcome bottles in the fridge were a very nice touch - would highly recommend
