  • “My wife and I rented the pretty ...”

    My wife and I rented the pretty property for a week in June. ...

    My wife and I rented the pretty property for a week in June. On arrival we found the property to be exceptionally clean and easy to operate. The kitchen was well-equipped with modern appliances. There was a fridge with a separate freezer compartment. The halogen cooker hob was highly efficient and the oven was spotless – always a good sign. The living room had a comfortable corner settee and the additional lighting meant it was easy to read after dark. There was a wood burning stove but we didn’t need to use it in June. The dining room had a table with two benches as well as an additional settee. The bed rooms were relatively spacious with plenty of storage. Linens were of a very good quality. We liked all the homely touches, such as a refreshment tray with a kettle was provided in the double bedroom. The shower was quite powerful and there was always plenty of hot water. Wi-Fi is strong and reliable. There were many features of this property which indicated the care and thought the owners have given to ensure the well being of guests. There is a prodigious selection of books, DVDS, games, toys and puzzles for rainy day solutions. We were so grateful for the generous welcome hamper. There was a huge amount of information about things to do in the local area. We enjoyed our visit to the Scottish highlands immensely, with its opportunities to visit traditional villages and towns. We did lots of touring in the mountains and to the coast to drive along ‘the Scottish Riviera’. There is ample scope for walking and cycling in the vicinity. This is definitely an all-year holiday location. The town of Grantown-on-Spey is highly attractive as well as having a wide range of shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. The owners are to be commended for providing such an attractive and cosy holiday cottage – it is aptly named. Communication with the owner have been very effective and helpful. I would recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit this gorgeous area.
