Spent 4 days in one of the 1 bedroom cottages with a discount deal. It was very nice, a lovely setting though a little like a small housing estate, the layout once inside and looking out from the living room and bedroom meant it did not feel like one.
The cottage itself was very nice, fairly plain but spacious for 2. I liked the patio doors and outdoor furniture, even if it did rain every time we sat out. Bathroom was a good size but the shower was over the bath and a wee niggle; the toilet seat was loose.
The bed was very comfy and it was nice to have blackout curtains even if the light got in the sides!
I was expecting something a bit more 'luxury' particularly the kitchen which was a little dated, did not have a dishwasher and only had fairly minimal equipment. The tap had a bit of a drip too. We didn't find the satellite tv so not sure if that was working and disappointingly the wifi was not working properly and next to useless, we were told it was a BT problem. There was 3G but it wasn't totally reliable and using it took me over my allowance on my phone contract.
It was very clean, apart from a bit of dust had built up on the windows.
We had parking right outside our cottage but it appears that is not the case for all cottages. The grounds were well maintained though unfortunately this did mean it was a bit noisy at times with mowers and strimmers, the windows did a good job of keeping most outside noise out.
It was a few minutes walk to the pool, bar and restaurant, although hardly busy with traffic it would have been nicer if there were footpaths, especially with children around, to avoid walking on the single track road round the site or the grass which was wet and muddy in places for our stay.
We didn't try the restaurant or bar, the menu looked nice but on the expensive side and didn't grab us - the bar menu particularly was heavily wheat based (burgers, pizzas etc) leaving very little choice for anyone who cannot eat wheat - and there were lots of other options in Aberfeldy itself.
The pool was fine, nothing particularly fancy but nothing wrong with it either.
Aberfeldy and the surrounding countryside is very nice, lots of touristy shops as well as pubs and restaurants.
It did seem a bit cheeky charging for electricity, we did need the heating on during our stay, though kept it to a minimum and didn't use the cooker much, it worked out about £2 per day for us.
Staff were friendly and helpful though we only really saw them checking in and checking out.
Overall we had a very nice stay and it was excellent value at the discounted rate, roughly half price but I'd expect a bit more for the full price.
