We recently had a stay from Sunday to Friday in the lovely house next door Pagoda which is also owned by Stan and Liz. We rented the whole property as we went on a family holiday. It is ideally situated within a lovely little town with the river almost right on your doorstep and we were made more than welcome by Stan and Liz. There is lots to see and do within easy travelling distance of this property and would recommend it to anyone who is looking within the speyside area. We will be back again :)
We stayed at the Miniver for a short break in April with our boys (aged 12 and 14) and our black lab Leo. It was one of the best breaks we have had. There is everything you need on your doorstep for a really nice break particularly if you like a walk. The Speyside way is just a short walk away from the cottage and has amazing walks along the River Spey ideal for dogs.
The cottage itself is lovely and very well presented. A lot of space with a big kitchen and dining area and a living room overlooking the back garden. It really felt like a home from home. Just wish we could have stayed longer. You are on the high street so ideally located for local shops etc. The Walkers Shortbread factory is about a 5 minute walk in one direction and the Aberlour Distillery 5 minutes in the other. Heaven!!
As for Stan and Liz, couldn't thank them enough for their welcome and their greats tips on where to walk, eat and drink. So helpful and friendly we could not have asked any better owners. They really looked after us during our stay and were so welcoming.
Overall a fantastic break and will definitely be going back. We still have a lot more to explore in the surrounding area but don't think my liver could take much more whisky. Could not recommend this highly enough.
Stan and Liz are excellent hosts making you feel so comfortable and at home during your stay they cannot do enough for you. The Cottage has everything you need to support you in having a great holiday IT TRULY IS A HOME FROM HOME.
We stayed here during the months of January and February and will certainly be back later this year.If you don't feel like cooking Stan is an excellent Chef and provides the most beautiful evening meals. We would encourage anyone to stay here and know that you will not be disappointed.
A BIG THANK YOU TO STAN AND LIZ for making our stay so enjoyable.
Liz and Stan are very friendly an reliable. We felt really welcomed and stayed for a week in this cosy appartment whith its nice garden.
We only managed to squeeze a couple of nights here as our daughter and family were visiting from London. Immediate reaction..."I could have done with a week". It is a perfect location with car parking at the door. The village is beautiful and the nearby river spey and the Linn Falls are magical. You may also get a pleasant surprise if you visit the Fairy Know. Plenty of eating places and don't forget the Aberlour Takeaway. It is fantastic and their prices so reasonable. We had a couple of shelties with us and they loved their wee break too. Stan and Liz the owners are great people and will ensure you have a memorable stay. Don't hesitate...book it and enjoy a wonderful holiday!

Liz and Stan are such wonderful hosts. Such a warm welcome from this home from home. The cottage is quiet, well equipped, with a fantastic bathroom featuring an amazing shower. We took the dog and she loved the garden and we enjoyed sitting out on the lovely deck. Stan has even added a BBQ now.
Aberlour is a lovely little town, with everything for your immediate needs, including a good fish and chip shop, COOP and great yarn shop. There are other shops too.
Liz and Stan gave us advice on attractions to visit locally and advised on good places to eat. There are some great walks round there too. They really could have been kinder and more welcoming.
We will defiantly be staying there again as this is just such a great location for exploring all round the area.
