    “Having read a previous review from July 2021 from Mrs P, I have to say I was worried that I’d made a mistake in booking this property, but my fears were completely allayed, when our group of 15 arrived.”

    This property was perfect, no dirt, exceptionally clean and every bedroom was appointed beautifully, with bed linen & towels supplied. The photos do not do this property justice. Superb kitchen facilities (two) with everything you could ever want, down to the tea, coffee & sugar canisters being full. Some very nice touches were left for our group, fresh flowers on the dining table, a nice bottle of 15yr old spirit & shortbread. It was those small details which went a long way to making us feel ...

    This property was perfect, no dirt, exceptionally clean and every bedroom was appointed beautifully, with bed linen & towels supplied. The photos do not do this property justice. Superb kitchen facilities (two) with everything you could ever want, down to the tea, coffee & sugar canisters being full. Some very nice touches were left for our group, fresh flowers on the dining table, a nice bottle of 15yr old spirit & shortbread. It was those small details which went a long way to making us feel very welcome. There is WiFi in the property and the signal is better at the front of the house (downstairs) and although Sky TV was available in the second lounge room, the signal seemed to struggle in the back bedroom & freeview was a bit intermittent, but then again we’d come away on holiday to get away from TV, so perhaps that’s a good thing. The location of the property is great, with some lovely views and walking to the local amenities was good, although due to COVID, numbers were restricted at some restaurants, The Glen Hotel being one, give at least 48hrs if you want to book a table for a large group. The local Co-op had plenty of supplies though. Everyone in our group, aged 17 - 87 have all said that Alvey House is great and would definitely come back. It was a perfect place, but I don’t want to recommend it for anyone else, it’s a secret best kept.

The property

A superior Victorian-styled villa, privately located in the desirable village of Newtonmore in the fabulous Cairngorms National Park.

Built of local stone over a century ago, this large and welcoming Cairngorms cottage has elevated views to the surrounding mountains and yet is within easy reach of the village facilities.

With so much space and most rooms with their own en-suite facilities, this Cairngorms villa is ideal for a large family group or a group of outdoor enthusiasts who want to embrace the fabulous outdoor activities on offer in the area.

The flexible accommodation ensures plenty of relaxation space for guests.

The lovely sun room at the front is a perfect place for enjoying a morning coffee while appreciating the views and the formal sitting room is a sociable place to gather for a chat at the end of a busy day.

The kitchen in this Cairngorms cottage is very well-equipped and leads through to the impressive dining room, which seats 20 and provides a great place for a lively dinner with friends and family.

Outside there is an acre of garden, with a fully-enclosed, child-friendly, rear garden and a terraced front garden with private seating areas.

The friendly village of Newtonmore offers good local services and shops and if you fancy a spot of golf you are just two minutes’ walk away from the clubhouse.

The Cairngorms National Park offers so much in terms of outdoor pursuits and sight-seeing at all times of the year.

If you are tempted to climb a few Munros then Alvey House is within one hour’s drive of over 50 Munros and just 30 minutes away is the CairnGorm Mountain, a skier’s paradise.

If you prefer some wildlife watching then Insh Marshes is one of the most important wetlands in Europe and ospreys, hen harriers and many more birds can be regularly seen.

This Newtonmore cottage will welcome you back at the end of a busy day.

About the location

NEWTONMORE

Kingussie 3 miles; Aviemore 15 miles; Fort William 45 miles; Inverness 47 miles.

Overlooking the River Spey, in the Cairngorms National Park (Britain's largest), Newtonmore has several shops and pubs, as well as two excellent, award-winning museums - the Highland Folk Museum and Clan MacPherson Museum. Newtonmore's Wildcat Trail is a popular, 7-mile circular walk around the edge of the village, taking in the River Spey with woodland, moorland and wonderful views across the valley to the Cairngorms, and behind the village to the Monadhliath Mountains - a fitting introduction to the delights of the National Park. For younger visitors, the Folk Park, the Wildlife Park at Kincraig, Landmark at Carrbridge and the Steam Railway are all outstanding local attractions. The area offers fine golf, fishing, pony trekking, walking, birdwatching, cycling, mountain biking, climbing and skiing, making it an ideal base from which to discover all that this scenic area of Scotland has to offer.
