“Smiddy cottage”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had a fantastic breaks, the cottage had everything and more than we expected, fresh milk water and also homemade crispy cakes for our arrival.
The cottage was clean and comfortable, our dogs were very at home. Your hot tub was great after our local walks great at the end of a day.
We will definitely recommend to family and friends and hopefully we will be arranging a return break soon.
Thank you to Sue and her husband for the warm welcome.

“Lovely cottage in stunning location”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

As other reviews have said this is a lovely cottage in an area of stunning scenery.
Very cosy cottage with lovely decor and facilities.
Wood burner was ready to go when we arrived on a wet evening which was a nice touch.

Hot tub outside is a great addition as the views from it are magnificent.

Plenty to do in the area with villages like Braemar, Pitlochry not far and plenty of places to do walking (and skiing in the winter) but as the cottage is so nice you wouldn't want to spend all your time out and about :-)

Very peaceful and relaxing weekend which i would thoroughly recommend to people and we will definitely be returning in the future.

Thanks again Mick & Caroline

Beautiful cottage, very clean and cosy. We just stayed for a weekend but would definitely return for longer. A great extra is the hot tub, very welcome after a day of walking.

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This is a fantastic cottage, recently renovated to a high standard. It's warm, homely, fantastically equipped and feels like a real home from home, with a pleasant welcome from the owners on arrival.

The main kitchen/living room area is a great size, the kitchen is stocked with every utensil under the sun and has space for 4 people to sit and eat at. The living area has comfy sofas, a good sized TV with DVD player and a lovely big window offering fantastic views. The bedrooms are comfortable, quiet, spacious and dark (a necessity for me!).

Wi-fi is free and fast, you get logs for the fire at no cost, home made jam and brownies on arrival, a fabulous outdoor hottub which is secluded enough and great to use in the middle of winter. The location is great for Glenshee ski centre which is about a 15 minute drive away.

5 stars isn't enough - we'll definitely return and I'd happily recommend the place to anyone.
