  • "Loved the cottage - very clean, modern decor, not cluttered (space to actually put your own stuff somewhere), comfortable soft furnishings, well equipped kitchen, table to eat from, great enclosed space for dogs, nice patio area to enjoy in warmer weather, great inside porch area to put boots, coats etc."

    .. Loved the personal touches by the owners (also very approachable if help needed with anything) - for both humans and dogs. Loved the surroundings - great for doing walks from the doorstep as well as a super location to explore this most beautiful area by car. The list could go on but in essence a place good for the soul and definitely one of the best cottages we've stayed in. Thank you! Genuinely hoping to be coming back here sometime.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a brilliant review. It was lovely meeting you both and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay here. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back sometime. Kind regards, Adam & Leanne Property Owner

    The views from the cottage is stunning. The cottage is very cosy. The bedroom was quite spacious and the bed and the bedding is very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed.

    Great property- comfortable bed - cozy Toilet seat needed straightened and hot tap round wrong way round Peaceful location Outside area well kept

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are pleased you found the bed comfortable and cozy. Apologies regarding the toilet seat, we were unaware there was a problem, we are on-site so if we had known we would have come to the cottage and straightened it for you. With regards to the hot tap, yes they turn on and off the opposite way to which you would expect. Property Owner

  • "Birch is a beautiful and well-equipped cottage in a perfect rural location for exploring the Cairngorms."

    Adam and Leanne were great hosts who were friendly when we saw them but didn't intrude, and we're very helpful when we had questions. It was lovely to sit in front of the fire on a chilly/rainy evening and the bed was super comfortable. Our only suggestion would be to provide more/bigger blankets to make it even cosier. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it and stay there again!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay here. It was lovely to have you here and we look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner
