Wonderful relaxing break

The service we received was first class, and the bungalow was comfortable and cosy especially at night with the woodburner. they were plenty of walks in the area, and a nice pub that gives excellent meals and friendly staff. We loved the area and the locals were always friendly and helpful.

'Rest and be thankful'

A great stay for us and our cat for over New Year. Great location for hillwalking, skiing (the Lecht is 5 minutes away) and the drive through Glenshee on the way is beautiful. Fuel for open fire and electricity included in price (not like other places), very comfy bed and couch/chairs. Kitchen has all you need and bathroom is clean. There was no wifi but a full 3G signal on moblie so if you can tether your mobile to your tablet/pc wth no issues at all. We have been to cottages twice the price and they have been nowhere near as good as there was literally everything you needed down to tomato sauce, HP, toilet roll, every cleaning type you could imagine! Even black bags!!! Lovely neighbours and even though parking is on the street the only cars passing are the neighbours and that was few and far between. great shops as well and the Fire station had a lovely rombouts coffee :)

I have rented quite a few places and i must say that it was by far the best, The accommodation was cosy and comfortable it had every amenity you could ever want, loved the fire had it on for 2 nights really nice touch in the lounge. We met the owner on the second day very nice and friendly man he came in and had a chat and a cup of tea, He gave me info on the best whiskey to buy. All in all a very nice holiday will definatly be coming back Graham Rickard From Cork Ireland

Breath taking scenery

Breath taking scenery, fantastic mountain bike trails, the cottage is an ideal place for a cosy comfortable break, I must admit the log fire was wonderful to sit in-front of in the evening, the high power shower was great and nice warm towel from the heated rails were awesome, signal for my I pad on 3G was amazing, Tony the proprietor gave us a warm welcome as well as a small gift of local shortbread and a miniature dram that went down well also he was on hand if we needed any help, I would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family, the local people were friendly and helpful.

Excellent cottage fantastic location very enjoyable experience

What a lovely cottage warm and cosy and very well positioned down a very quiet lane with a beautiful view from the front window. The owners very kindly left us a welcome gift which we really appreciated especially the whisky. The area has plenty to offer along with breathtaking scenery all around and we were lucky enough to see the olympic torch being carried through the village. We would rate this as the best cottage we have visited and we hope to visit again

Spotlessly clean cottage, with excellent appliances. Pet friendly, only thing to point out is that the garden is not secure for a dog. (It would also have beeen helpful to know that there were stairs up to the front door). A very warm welcome awaited us from the landlord, with a couple of miniatures and some shortbread! The bed was very comfy and large! In spite of inclement weather it was a lovely break, with sightings of deer and lots of other animals; we would go back again, only down side - it was 14 miles from Grantown-on-Spey and 24miles from Ballater (the nearest shoppping centres).
