  • "We really enjoyed our stay, the cottage was beautifully clean and very well presented."

    Slightly disappointed about the hot tub being with drawn and not having any money refunded for this, but I understand the reasons why. Overall a lovely place to stay with everything you would need.

  • "The property is beautiful, the beds were ultra comfy and the facilities excellent."

    Just 2 small points that are a bit of a negative... 1. We booked the property because we wanted a hot tub then it was removed. We understand that electricity costs are at an all time high but it was a slight disappointment. 2. We had no dishwasher for the week and the fuse box tripped several times over the week. At one point we had no electricity in the kitchen for 2 hours in the middle of cooking a meal.

    Hi Anita this is the first time I have heard this.I will talk to our maintenance company. It sounds like the problem might be the dish washer. I will see what they are saying. I appreciate the comments on the hot tub and I totally understand. The rising costs was the key reason we took it out but I also felt it was wrong to be heating water during an energy crisis. I will investigate the dishwasher. Thanks for the feedback. We can only get better with your feedback - negative as well as positive. Property Owner

    The house was really good and I would no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends. Just a pity that the hot tub is going away, which was the initial attraction to the property

    Only thing to mention was the oven glove needs replacing; big hole caused burn to my mum’s hand! Otherwise everything was great.

    House was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Great location. Everything we hoped for. Many thanks for the bottle of wine too. It was very much appreciated.

  • "Excellent house with high spec finish everywhere."

    Well stocked kitchen, lovely bedding and super-cosy; wood burning stove not needed for heat but always great for winter nights … especially after a hot tub soak. We didn’t have our dog on this trip but impressive consideration to dog friendly garden etc. if there is a downside, you are a good distance from the centre but the quiet, countryside feel makes up for that! Highly recommend staying at Burnside.

    So glad you had a lovely stay at the house and thanks so much for such positive feedback. Property Owner

  • "A lovely, comfortable house in a beautiful location."

    It has everything you could need and more. My only complaint is that the bed in the main bedroom is very uncomfortable and really needs a new mattress. We had to put our own memory foam topper on ( from our Campervan ) but it was still uncomfortable.

  • "Burnside house was everything we needed and more for our family holiday."

    We had everything we needed for our two dogs and two children. The house was immaculate and a great place to unwind warm up and relax after a days outing or adventure. The Hot tub was cleaned on the Wednesday and checked over. Which we were very happy with. The home reflected the beutiful town of aviemore and the amazing scenery. So happy we will be booking again

    We had a lovely time at burnside house, the only small complaint is the Main Bedroom Bed I could feel the springs through the mattress so I used a duvet from the other room to sleep on, so a mattress topper might be useful Thanks

  • "Very good accommodation."

    Good kitchen with plenty of appliances and I appreciated the gesture of the bottle of wine left for me . Very kind .Only comment I would make is, that I would like to have recycled food waste and paper etc. but there was no specific bins for this like I have at home. The blue bins that were there were full and overflowing and I actually tidied up discarded rubbish left around the bins after they were emptied on bin collection day. It looks as if the bins hadn't been emptied the week before and people had just left cardboard boxes and other stuff lying beside them. I had a very good holiday and the area was really quiet and peaceful despite most of the surrounding houses being occupied. I would recommend Burnside House.

The property

Located on the North West edge of the Cairngorms National Park, in the town of Aviemore, is this charming detached cottage, Burnside House.

This property is wonderfully placed in the Scottish Highlands and is less than an hour's drive away from the bustling city of Inverness, a real hot spot for tourists and locals alike.

Ideal for pet lovers as there's a dog kennel with the house, you can bring up to two well-behaved dogs with you to explore the natural beauty surrounding the property, particularly its close proximity to a nearby mountain stream.

Hang your coats on the hooks by the front door and be welcomed into a spacious hallway, leading off towards a sitting area.

Look forward to unwinding in the bright and airy living space with plush leather sofas for sinking into with a glass of wine in hand and benefitting from that essential woodburning stove adding to the homely effect of the space.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner with all the necessary appliances needed to cook up some delicious meals, and the benefit of a dishwasher so you don't have to wash up yourself.

Choose to gather at the dining table with your meals and break open a bottle of champagne to celebrate a wonderful holiday break.

The first floor comes with the choice of a king-size, double and twin bedroom, each presenting a range of modern furnishings for storing your personal belongings.

All bedrooms have their own TVs for those early morning shows without having to leave the comfort of the covers, and the master bedroom has its own en-suite shower room.

The family bathroom benefits from an elegant bath and shower cubicle so you can choose how best to prepare for your day.

From the living room, there are French doors which open out to a stunning enclosed garden, equipped with lawn and patio areas for dining alfresco during the summer months with the provided charcoal barbecue.

The town of Aviemore is rich with pubs and restaurants if you don't fancy cooking one evening, whilst also offering a choice of shops and supermarkets for all of your amenities.

Discover a range of trails for walking or cycling on Craigellachie Hill and tour the length of its nature reserve and spot an abundance of wildlife along the way.

Choose to explore places such as Loch Morlich, Loch an Eilean and the Green Loch for a mixture of historical castles, white sandy beaches and water sporting opportunities; something to suit all types of guests.

Further afield is the charming city of Inverness, which comes with a wide-range of tourist attractions such as the riverside Inverness Castle, the Victorian Inverness Museum and Art Gallery and so much more.

Burnside House is the ultimate attraction for families seeking to explore this wonderful part of the Scottish Highlands.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
