“Amazing cottage with attention to detail”
Reviewed 17 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We stayed in this newly renovated cottage 0.5 miles from the centre of Boat of Garten for a long weekend in October. We absolutely love the Cairngorms area and have spent many happy holidays here over the last 18 years with our three children, staying in quite a few different cottages, but this is easily our favourite.

The cottage has been beautifully decorated and the owners have truly thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The cottage interior is perfectly laid out and very warm and comfortable, with a lovely wood-burning stove. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and modern and there is plenty of hanging space in the bedrooms. Opening up the curtains every morning and seeing the stunning views of the mountain landscape from the large windows was a particular highlight, as was the lovely balcony where we were able to sit out at night and watch the stars! Importantly, the wifi signal is excellent, which, along with the smart TV, kept our three teenagers very happy after a day of cycling/walking :) Although we didn't have time to enjoy the wild garden, it is completely fenced and would be a perfect place for younger children to explore and play safely.

The cottage is in a fabulous location. It is very private but is also only a short walk along a very quiet road to the centre of Boat of Garten, where there are two well-stocked shops (great for fresh bread and croissants every morning!) and it is possible to catch the steam train to Aviemore., There are many walks and cycle routes accessible directly from the cottage, including a lovely off-road route to Aviemore (about 5 miles) that follows the steam railway line, but it is also a great base to travel and visit the surrounding area. We would particularly recommend Rothiemurchus, Loch Morlich/Glenmore, the mountain funicular and Landmark.

Communication with the owners was great, both before and during our stay.

Overall, we absolutely loved this cottage and really didn't want to leave - we will definitely be returning. I would highly recommend this cottage for both families and couples.

Thanks Deb. Very generous review much appreciated. As our first guests, although we hoped we were close to making a stay at the cottage a good experience, it is obviously great that you enjoyed it so much. Of course, you are more than welcome back any time. Kind regards, Derek
