We stayed in No 4 from 2nd to 10th June 2013. The cottage is comfortable and even better equipped than the website promised as there was also a dishwasher. In fact the kitchen had everything, soap powder, dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid, cloths etc etc. Oh and a cafetiere too. Even though the weather was glorious, we were grateful for the log burner and logs supplied as the evenings could get a bit chilly.
The beds are comfortable and the views from every room are to die for. The bathroom is small but has everything you need. Bath with shower over.
We were especially grateful to Alvie staff who made room in the shed alongside the house for my husband's motorcycle. We went to Alvie so that he could take part in the Two Day Classic Motorcycle Trial which was a superb event.
As we like exploring, we didn't take part in other activities on the estate but there are plenty to choose from, horse riding (stables 100yds from cottage), quad bikes, zip lines, fishing to name just a few. We liked being able to specify the dates we wanted to stay and not being tied to a particular changeover day. This was really helpful for us. We had a lovely few days going on the Cairngorm Mountain Railway, enjoying coffee whilst watching red squirrels and many species of birds at The Potting Shed and relaxing on the beach at nearby Loch Morlich. I am a convert to Trade Winds Beer from the Cairngorm Brewery too. All in all a lovely holiday and would love to go back with children and grandchildren as there is so much for the whole family to do both on the Estate and in the vicinity. Thank you Alvie.
