“Lovely comfortable cottage with everything you need for a relaxing stay.”
Reviewed 29 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

We rented the cottage to spend some time with our son who is studying in Aberdeen as it was his 21st birthday. Family of 5 and the dogs. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and very spacious. It was great to light the log burner at night and chill. There was no phone signal around the cottage but there is a landline installed (which we didn't need to use). Internet access kept the younger members of the family happy. The owner was fantastic and sent us all the information which we needed ahead of our visit and phoned the cottage just after we arrived to check everything was ok. It was these personal touches that made our stay so easy. We had a great weekend and would love to return to Craigiedows in the future.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The property is so homely and lovely it's like being in a home of your own especially with the log fire most of your things are provided for just need food, and it was fantastic to wake up to the beautiful mountains every morning couldn't ask for anything more also walking trails are close by which was fantastic.

“Lovely 2 day break”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Visited Craigiedows Cottage last week. Lovely remote place, perfect break for playing board games, reading in front of a log fire and cooking meals. Would def go again once the sun comes out as it rained the whole duration of our stay.

“Perfect cottage with great views. Rain or shine you'll have a good time!”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We were a group of friends looking for a weekend getaway coming up from Glasgow which took around 3 hours to get there. We were looking for an isolated place with great views so that if it rained we could look out from the conservatory and play games or venture into the the local area if it was nice. The weather was variable so we did both. The place was easy enough to find given the instructions as was the key. It was great having the log fire and the kitchen and bedrooms were well kitted out with everything we needed. I am very much looking forward to returning to the cottage.

“Magical”
Reviewed 4 March 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Amazing location at end of long and quite remote country road. Good walks for dogs on your doorstep. Great views. Very attractive enclosed garden. House is very comfortable and cosy and has all amenities you need. Not really suited to people with limited mobility. Despite remote feel, towns like Ballater are 30 min drive away. Highly recommended.
