The Signal Box was easy to find, close to pubs, shops and places to eat. The place itself was well kitted out with everything you could need! The Wildcat Walk was the best...I think it's based around kids, but becomes highly addictive!
A lovely comfortable cottage and a nice welcome from the owner with homemade cake. Cottage could not be better. Very clean and comfortable with great views. Only suggestion I would make would be that a tumble dryer would be useful for winter stays.
Wonderful property - one of the best we have ever stayed in. We enjoyed Isla's warm welcome and her fabulous chocolate cake. We could not fault anything about the Signal Box, fantastic location, warm and cosy, great wood burning stove and welcoming sauna after long days on the mountains. It was quite unexpected to find such a first rate holiday accommodation which also welcomed a dog. Newtonmore is a lovely village, ideal for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy walks and wildlife. We also highly recommend the Letterbox restaurant in the village. A great week - we will return.
We loved all aspects of the Signal Box! It was very comfortable- everything we needed was provided,( even things we thought we didn't need like chocolate cake) which was delicious! The owners went out of theitr way to provide a wonderfull holiday home for their guests! 10 out of 10.
the signal box was central to most places it was comfortable light and airy great fun we loved it so much we did not want to leave. the only down side to the signal box is that it is difficult to book again for next year as it seems fully booked up you should build more fantastic
This has to be one of the greatest holidays that we have ever been on. From Isla's warm welcome to the chocolate cake that waited for us on arrival, everything was perfect. The Signalbox is clean, spacious and set in beautiful countryside. We never tired of looking out the windows at The Cairngorms. Our 18 month old son loved the trains that stopped or passed through the station and was in his element exploring the cottage. There is plenty to explore on your doorstep with the Highland Folk Museum about 25-30 minutes walk away and aviemore a short drive of 10-15 minutes. Further afield, we visited Inverness, Ben Nevis, the Wildlife Park at Kingussie and the nearby Inshriach Nursery that makes amazing cakes. Wonderful, hope to pop back sooner rather than later!
