We go away at this time each year to a secluded location to escape the noise of fireworks. Although not secluded, there are just a few properties close by and it was very peaceful.
The property is accessed via a private road and sits alone on a plot of land in a valley that overlooks fields to the front. The cottage is well appointed with a large lounge & dining area with two comfy sofas. There is a good sized TV in the lounge & in both bedrooms with Free-Sat channels. Reception can sometimes be a problem in bad weather. There is also a DVD player & selection of DVD's.
The kitchen has an oven & electric hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and is very spacious. There is a utility room next to the kitchen with a washing machine & dryer plus another small freezer & fridge.
The main bedroom has a large double bed and overlooks the open aspect while the second bedroom has two signals with a modern en-suite shower. There is a separate bathroom without a shower.
The cottage is heated with night storage heaters & a wood burning stove. A little info about how the storage heaters work would be helpful if like us, you are not familiar with them.
There are some great walks in the area & some great drives.Make sure that you have everything that you need as the nearest shop is in Aviemore which is about 20 minutes away, There is a small Tesco in Aviemore and many independent shops.
It is pet friendly & a great place for dogs. Sadly, the previous visitors allowed their dogs to foul in the garden & didn't pick it up, I'm not sure how many dogs they had but I picked up 16 bags of poop!
That was the only negative though & the owners are very helpful & attentive. We would definitely return...
