  • "We had a great week at the cottage whilst taking in some of the Speyside Whisky Festival events."

    The house is clean, modern with good facilities and has fantastic views from the upstairs lounge. Can't really fault anything at all - brilliant communications from the owner and the village is great with loads of walks right from the doorstep.

    Thank you John, lovely to hear all wss up to scratch. Property Owner

  • "This was an amazing find."

    Loved every minute of our stay here. The cottage is well equipped, tidy, clean and warm. Our dog loved the garden and was safe and secure, so we could happily leave him out there on his own, however, having the patio doors leading straight to the back of the property meant we could keep an eye on him too. We felt the location was perfect for us and the driving to activities planned for the day meant we could enjoy the beautiful scenery and experience the remoteness of the area. After a long day in the mountains, returning to Berg Cottage was the icing on the cake. It's peaceful, relaxing location, along with a dip in the hot tub, allowed us to refresh for the following day. We would definitely return to this cottage and can not fault it at all.

    Thank you so much Kerry for this wonderful feedback. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay this much. Property Owner

  • "The property was sufficient for us but a larger sofa, maybe a corner unit upstairs?"

    The bed settee isn't exactly comfortable to sit on for prolonged periods & chairs don't really accommodate adults & at full capacity the seating is inadequate. An awning/covering of some sort over the hottub would have been ideal as weather conditions/rain stopped us using it as often as we would have liked. All in all the cottage was good but as the owners have control of the heating remotely it got a bit uncomfortable at times & whilst I u derstand the convenience it did affect our comfort. The washing & cooking facilities were excellent. The beds were comfortable but unfortunately my partner being over 6ft, the master bedroom caused him some knocks to the head when using the facilities during the night. Estie was great & kept us appraised of WiFi problems & solutions etc Roger sorted out the hottub as soon as was reasonably possible Our dog loved the big garden & the proximity to the visitor centre & ev charging was great

    Thank you Karen for the feedback. This booking was made at 9pm during a storm, with snowy road closed conditions and a power cut for IMMEDIATE entry due to being virtually stranded. We wanted to help for safety and moral reasons, so agreed. I endured an unplanned 12hr day to travel first thing next morning and set things up so it is deeply disappointing that these aspects are not mentioned and the review quite poor. To clarify, guests do have control over heating for temperature. There are booklets/cards in the house and the house manual explains guests can choose to lower or raise each room by up to 5degrees either way. If there is any issue, we always ask guests to contact us so it is disappointing to now hear the heating was uncomfortable. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed the cottage very much."

    Very comfortable and had an amazing view out the back. Peaceful location. Nearby facilities (restaurants, pubs) had friendly staff and the food was good. The hot tub was lovely (perhaps it could be covered for bad weather, colder weather). We would definitely like to visit again. Enjoyed being in the sitting room upstairs with the open window/balcony - it was like bringing the outdoors in! The cottage wifi signal was poor at times and also there was no TV ariel.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings and hot tubs are my thing so loved my staycation."

    The cottage has everything you need for a short break. The beds in this cottage are also really comfy which is normally unusual for a holiday let. Changes I would make are: putting a tv in the kitchen dining and a slightly bigger sofa. We spent most of our time in this room when we were not out sightseeing.

  • "We had a fabulous time at Berg Cottage."

    It was relaxed and quiet with spectacular views from the house, from the walks around the friendly village of Tomintoul and the drives around the Cairngorms National Park. Tomintoul is an excellent location to explore the Cairngorms and the Moray Coast, we were never short of things to do and see. Berg Cottage itself had everything we needed for the week. The chocolates on the pillows upon our arrival and the dog biscuits for our collie was very welcoming and we felt at home straight away. Another lovely touch was the dressing gowns and slippers which made us all feel special! The back of the house has amazing windows that open up dormer style for the beautiful views over the countryside, sounds of bleating lambs, birdsong. The cottage is walking distance to shops and cafes; there is an adventure play park close by, bird watching areas and then back to a hot tub to relax in after a busy day of walking/exploring. We wish we'd have stayed another week and would love to come back soon, very soon!

The property

Nestled within the beautiful rolling Scottish countryside in the village of Tomintoul, you will find this delightful newly built dwelling, Berg Cottage.

This stylish, high spec and accessible cottage provides the perfect base for families or groups of five wanting to explore the magnificent Cairngorms National Park.

The rural location has lots to offer if you enjoy spectacular scenery, walks and Cairngorm wildlife.

The Glenlivet Mountain Bike Trails, Lecht downhill mountain bike area and the Lecht Ski slopes are ideal for those keen sporty types and if it's history you're interested in, venture towards the wonderful Ballindalloch Castle and Drumin Castle, dating back hundreds of years.

Enter into the airy utility room, where you can pull off your mud splattered boots following an exhilarating afternoon expedition and throw your dirty walking gear into the conveniently placed washing machine.

The underfloor heating will soon dry any soggy footwear.

Made up of three well-decorated bedrooms, guests can choose from a spacious ground-floor twin, a snug single with dressing table or a bright and airy king-size bedroom that can be found on the first floor boasting large Velux balcony windows on its charming sloping ceilings and its own en-suite with a roomy walk-in corner shower, basin and WC.

The Velux windows are complete with black out blinds for light sleepers but can also give star gazers the unique opportunity of admiring the night sky whilst gently drifting off to sleep.

Wander through to the first-floor sitting room and turn on the gas stove before taking in the panoramic elevated views or making yourself comfortable on the sofa and turning on the TV to catch up with all your favourite shows as you wind down for the evening.

Venture back downstairs and into the stylish kitchen to whip up a tasty family meal with the help of the practical utensils and appliances, to savour at the 6-seater dining table as you crack open a bottle of bubbly and toast to an exciting adventure with your nearest and dearest.

Enjoy a refreshing shower in the downstairs bathroom or while away the hour as you soak up the bubbles in the spacious L-shaped bath, before grabbing your toasty towel from the heated rail and making your way into your bedroom for the evening.

Alternatively take the evening outside and cook on the gas BBQ or indulge with a dip in the hot tub as you watch the sunset on this magnificent countryside setting and appreciate this wonderful moment.

For an unforgettable holiday to Scotland, be sure to check into Berg Cottage.
