“not sutible for young family”

I have a few issues with the facilities of this cottage firstly the electrics are unpredictable lights turning on and off constantly and then they would not turn on at all. The hot tub itself was beautiful on the first day but as we entered our second day/night the tub was green and smelled like pond water not very appealing also jets would turn on by themselves. My understanding was the hot tub was private but when we arrived it is very open to view of guests playing ball in the front garden which was also kicked right at our hot tub there are also a lot of dog walkers passing frequently which was unsettling . The décor of the kitchen was beautiful but the living quarters needs updating as it feels old fashioned. I feel the hosts are unapproachable as they never asked if we needed anything we were just left and we never seen them again to the night we left. We did ask for towels mid week as one set with a family of 5 is not enough all in all the price per week is not justified. On the plus side the barman on the last night was fantastic.

Many thanks for you review. Following your feedback the owner has had all the electrics have been checked, no fault was found and recent guests have had no issues - but best to be safe. The owner is also sorry hear about your problems with the hot tub, but they do make it clear that bubble bath should not be added to the water otherwise this sort of thing can occur. The owner has over 17 years experience in holiday rentals and has found that most guests prefer their privacy during a holiday, so they keep their distance unless needed but their telephone numbers are given to guests at the beginning of each stay and they can be reached at all times (Like in the case of the hot tub which they serviced the day after the bubble bath was added).

“Rustic charm”

A very enjoyable experience. We were greeted on arrival by Mike, the owner, and were immediately made welcome. The property was ready early so we made our way down. We had no problems but if you are infirm or struggle with mobility then the pathway may be a challenge. The cottage itself was as advertised in the brochure, and the log burner and hot tub were utilised to their full extent. All the wood was readily available and Mike said to hep ourselves from the wood store if we needed more. The property is wood cabin effect and has rustic feel and look in the decor and furnishings. It was little too cluttered with for my taste but not something that spoils the holiday. The hot tub was perfect end to the days of hill walking, especially after the cairngorm walk which is about 10 miles from the property. Aviemore is six miles and there is a bus stop directly outside the property, but if there is 4 or more then get a taxi, it's cheaper. The nearest pub is in the main house and is highly recommended, the locals use it regularly and we made welcome by everyone, our host, Mike, doubled up as barman and was a mine of information and full of anecdotal stories to pass the evening away. All in all a very good holiday was had by all of our party and would return again.
