“Compact, Clean and Cosy”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed at this cottage for two nights with 3 friends. It was fairly small, but more than adequate for 4 adults on a weekend break, clean and comfortable and the most excellent value for money.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked best: The situation in Aviemore - close to everything and it was very comfortable
Liked least: Only one shower room/toilet for the 4 of us (but that wasn't a problem)

“Ideal accommodation in the centre of Aviemore close to shops/restaurants”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Spent an enjoyable weekend with my husband and grand children, the accommodation was ideal for our stay close to Aviemore amenities and centrally based for Highland wildlife park and Landmark, the cottage itself is nicely furnished the cooking facilities are adequate for a short stay as restaurants are close by, TV is a bit strange to get used to but anyone with a bit of technical DIY can easily sort it out, the sink in the bathroom is a bit small but no problem. All in all a good place to stay hopefully we will be going back at some point

“desperately in need of improvements”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Good location but our stay was spoiled by totally unsatisfactory bathroom facilities. The warped bathroom door required a great deal of strength to close. The sink is far too small and the mixer tap was loose and seemed likely to come detached every time it was used. Obtaining hot water from this tap required skill and patience. The toilet seat was also loose and it was not possible to simply tighten up. General decoration was poor.

“Convenient and cosy cottage”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We enjoyed our few days in Aviemore, the cottage has everything needed and is close to the shops and restaurants. Despite the fact that it is June the heating was welcome. The dog enjoyed the walk recommended by Dorothy as well.

“Perfect cosy little home to explore the Glens and Highlands.”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This little house is like a tardis - nothing much to look at on the outside but cosy and warm on the inside and nicely furnished with all the basics you need in a holiday home. The games were a nice touch - my children loved the chess/draughts set and dominoes - and there are blankets and a TV set with plenty of channels for a night in front of the box.
We were very happy here for three nights - including my daughter's birthday and were able to explore the mountains, Loch Ness, Ben Nevis and up to Inverness with ease from this location.

“Central, comfortable and easy to find”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Ideal for us with a small child. close to centre of the village and Tescos. Ate at The Winking Owl (book a table),we were lucky eating early. Tourist information is v helpful. Try out the childrens' play park behind the Macdonalds resort. It is great.
We enjoyed the Cairngorm Mountain Railway and the Highland Wild life Park
