“Another wonderful week at Balnagowan”
Reviewed 6 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 3 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.

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.

Many thanks for the great feedback and such a detailed and positive review. Glad you and the children and the grandparents enjoyed the ''new'' Balnagowan Mill and made such good use of the facilities. We look forward to welcoming you again next year.

“Superb accommodation in a stunning setting!”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This newly upgraded property has every comfort you'd ever need to make for a great holiday - well appointed bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms but also has that important bath for young children. Excellent kitchen with every utensil imaginable. Spacious living room and games room where both have large HDTV's with games facilities on the monitor. More DVD's than you could ever watch in several months. Amazing!
All this is surrounded by woodland and a large lawn which is ideal for putting , football, badminton etc. Lots of this equipment supplied along with mountain bikes which we made use of. There is an epic swing from a big tree too - great fun. There are regular visits to the garden by roe deer, rabbits and red squirrels who seem quite unconcerned when people are about.
Nethy Bridge is a delightful village with a well stocked shop, a hotel which serves standard bar meals and an excellent butcher shop. You can easily cycle or walk in the network of paths and quiet roads in the immediate area with the wider area providing every possible opportunity for outdoor activity at any level. We enjoyed a short dinghy hire at Loch Morlich with our 5 year old grandson. Facilities there were excellent with all equipment provided at modest cost. Landmark at Carrbridge is another 'must do'. You could, however, have a great holiday without spending a lot on these 'special' extras.
Its also well located for exploring the Moray Coast, Spey Valley Whisky Trail, Inverness, Fort George, Culloden - list could be long....
We would highly recommend Balnagowan and hope we'll be back before long.
