“A beautiful well appointed cottage in quiet woodland location.”

people found this review helpful

Spent a winter weekend exploring the local woodland searching for red squirrels.To our surprise the garden feeders provided the perfect attraction for squirrels and an amazing variety of small birds viewed from the comfort and warmth of the sun lounge.Plenty of opportunities for wild life photography in a perfect setting.
The cottage is equipped to the highest standard. Very efficient underfloor heating, wood burners, comfy beds, plenty hot water and a big bath.
Compliments to the owners they've thought of everything necessary for a wonderful retreat .

“stunning”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 for a stay in January 2013

the wildlife, atmosphere and scenery make this a perfect holiday destination but the cottage itself is reason to come.

set away from the road the rooms are a perfect size and nice and cosy. lots of fires for the winter and light in the summer, the cottage has been done to the highest of taste and I had a wonderful holiday here!

I love the area and everything about this property with walks out the back and access to the loch edge it couldn't be better!

“Lovely cottage and Area”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This was my first trip to Scotland but wont be my last ,the cottage is lovely great garden for children or dogs you can walk straight from the garden into the forest and only a short walk to the loch there is everything you need in the cottage and there is a local shop that seems to stock most things, as you are so central there really isn't anywhere you cant go we went to Aviemore. twice and there is a Tesco there so you can get some shopping if you need it.
loads of birds in the garden and there is deer in the forest behind you. I would recommend this to any of my friends as you can do as little or as much as you want while your here.

“Beautiful and so peaceful”
Reviewed 15 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

what can we say, such a beautiful cottage, very homely in an area of outstanding beauty, so peaceful next to the black woods of Rannoch, the cottage had everything you need a real home from home, my grand children and our wee westie mac, loved it so much they didn't want to leave, the carie walks are beautiful I would recommend all three, thanks for the lovely bottle of wine and shortbread Hans and Dawn, and the privilege of staying in your gorgeous cottage.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Before arriving we had high expectations of this cottage as it was so well presented on the website and well reviewed here. We are very familiar with the area but had not travelled here for some time.

Having spent several days at the cottage we can only say it hugely exceeds expectations. It really is like staying at your best friends house. The cottage itself is beautifully presented, very tastefully modernised and a good size for a family.

It is the extras, not only are dogs welcome, there is somewhere for them to sleep, towels to dry them down after their morning swim in the loch!

It is details, an iPod dock/player. It comes with a preloaded iPod! Awesome.

There are bikes for use, even free Netflix and wifi in the main room.

Our only reservation about giving it such a good review is that we will have to book early for next time. Very highly recommended.

“Hans and Dawn have shared a wee gem, truly magnificent.”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had the most enjoyable fortnight at the cottage. The location is fantastic if you just want to get away from it all. We have three young children all under eight and the freedom to roam around and find themselves was great.
From building a den that Bear Grylls would be proud of, to cooking open fire in the garden. The back gate out on to the Forestry commission paths are a great advantage too. As previously noted by others you can walk or bike as far and as wide as you like. Wildlife is there, and lots of it... however I am sure they will be welcoming of a little peace since my three and the dog have left! The cottage has as all you would need and more..! From the everlasting I pod and wifi to the log burning stoves, which we had to use once, even though it was the best summer in years! You can tell that the family still use the cottage because it feels like a home and not your average holiday let. So comfy and we spent most of the time outside...So looking forward to coming back here in the cold winter months. Fingers crossed...!!

Thank you Dawn and Hans....
