“Mrs Rhian Morgan”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Just returned from Balnagowan after staying for a few days with my husband, children and in laws for their anniversary holiday. We had a fantastic time, and couldn't rate the accommodation more. It has everything you need and so much to do.
My son had great fun on the swings in the garden, the putting green, the goals and football, the basketball hoop and even practicing cycling one of the many bikes! With all that on site, as well as a huge box of family friendly dvds, there was enough to keep us busy for days, however we also managed to visit many local beautiful attractions, taking walks with our two dogs through the old train line and woods in Nethy Bridge, a wonderful lunch at the cairngorms in Aviemore, a visit and walk around the must see Loch Morlich, as well as sledging on the cairngorms!

It was lovely returning to the warmth of the cottage after being out and about, with a lovely dining area and lounge. The bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of space, and the kitchen is kitted out with all you will need. The new extension is really wonderful too with a great second sitting room with ps4 included!

All in all a fantastic stay and would highly recommend it.

Thanks for having us.

“Another wonderful week at Balnagowan”
Reviewed 5 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

What a wonderful place to stay. We have had another great week up in Nethy Bridge. Beautiful and tranquil place to stay. We just love walking along the river with our little dog. There is so much to see and do in Cairngom National Park. We have been coming up to Balnagowan since 2008 and can thoroughly recommend this gem of a cottage. The new extension is fabulous.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We have just spent a wonderful week here. The house has everything you could wish for. The rooms are beautifully furnished, and the facilities provided, cater for all needs. The peaceful location of the house also adds to the enjoyment, with visits from deer, squirrels, and birds. Thanks Paula & Jim for another super break.

“5 STAR LUXURY HOME FROM HOME EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

Everything you could wish for and more...

Spacious and tastefully designed/decorated Luxury holiday home with 5 star facilities...set in its own large secluded gardens in the beautiful location of Nethy Bridge, within the breathtaking Cairngorms National Park, north of Aviemore and south of Granton on Spey.

Perfect luxury family accommodation, with everything you will ever need for that luxury home from home experience.. I literally had to pack my clothes as everything else was there..
Amazing facilities with 3 luxury ensuite bedrooms, further bedroom all with luxury quality bedding/towels and a large family bathroom.
Living accommodation was perfect with every mod con required and more, Plenty to keep kids amused with Large TV/DVD Xbox within games room.. and free Wifi...

Lovely touch of fresh food welcome pack to get you started with breakfast...
Local shop and hotel within minutes walk...

Large garden with 9 hole putting green, swings, tree swing, but also badminton/soft ball tennis bikes available too. Just not enough hours in the day to utilise everything provided...

Large patio area with tables /chairs /BBQ, perfect for alfresco dining, whilst watching the local wildlife was amazing...
A visit on the Cairngorm funicular a must, as is a trip to Loch Morlich,

Thank you .... A truly fabulous holiday experience... can't wait to return.
