    Ideal location to explore Cairngorms and further afield. The lodge is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The park it is set on is very quiet and lodges are well spaced out giving you your own privacy. Lodge has digital TV an WiFi and a fully equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are big and spacious, large decking area with hot tub to relax in. The property also has good parking facilities at the lodge. Local attractions are Approximately 1 hour to Fort William, 1 hour to Inverness and 30 mins to Aviemore, all of which are a nice drive. Dalwhinnie Distillery is about 5 miles away and the nearest town Newtonmore has places to eat and drink and a well stocked supermarket for anything you may need. Would definitely stay again.

    We arrived to a bottle of Prosecco and got straight in the hot tub after our long journey. It’s one of those places where the people who own it really care, and have thought of absolutely every little detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The kitchen is really well equipped with everything you need to make proper dinners if you so desire! It’s decorated beautifully too - I particularly liked the modern country Scottish type feel, I really liked the style of the kitchen and the light pink tartan/deer motif bedroom! The views from the decking were lovely and sitting out there on the little bench with a coffee before the kids woke up each day was fabulous! We have teenagers and they loved it too - there was Netflix and WiFi

The lodge is very well equipped & the added extras supplied by the owners were really appreciated. The lodge is an excellent base to explore The Cairngorms, there are excellent links to go further North or across to Fort William. We particularly enjoyed the hottub after our walking days.

The property

Newtonmore 3 miles.

This very well-presented log cabin is situated in a stunning open setting in a quiet site with direct access to the woods, close to the village of Newtonmore, in the Cairngorms National Park.

A real home-from-home this cabin is ideal for a couple on a romantic break, a family group or group of friends who will all love the peaceful ambience of the location and appreciate the luxury of a private hot tub from which the surrounding hills can be fully appreciated whilst sipping a glass of something sparkling.

The comfortable living area has a touch of welcoming tartan and a very well-equipped kitchen where tasty meals can be easily prepared.

There are two smart bedrooms and also a sofa bed in the sitting area, providing some flexibility if required.

French doors from the sitting area give direct access onto the decked balcony which is a perfect spot for a quiet read or pre-dinner glass of wine, along with a dip in the hot tub.

The Cairngorm National Park is a truly magical location for a holiday as it offers everything you would expect of the largest national park in the United Kingdom.

Aviemore is close by and offers a diverse range of activities for all ages.

Skiiing, of course, in the winter time along with mountain biking, pony trekking, archery, quad bike trails, sled dog riding and so much more.

Wildlife lovers will be in their element here as the high mountains and ancient forests attract wildcats, capercaillie and pine martens along with golden eagles too.

Be sure to take a ride up the Cairngorm Mountain on the Funicular Railway as no matter what the weather the view is magnificent.

A wonderful holiday location with something for everyone and a top notch holiday home to return to and relax in at the end of a busy day with a soak in your own wonderful hot tub.
